AVG repeated threat detection

Unread postby tornege » April 28th, 2011, 6:25 am

Hello,

I'm getting repeated threat detection messages from AVG. It will pop up, alerting me to a threat, at which point i have the option to 'remove all unhealed'. Part of that process is rebooting, however, upon reboot i will soon get another threat detection message.

At the moment i have a multiple threat detection message with three threats listed. The first is in c:\Windows\Temp\Acg.exe and the second two are in c:\Windows\Afasib.exe and all three are identified as 'Trojan horse FakeAV.NZK'

I cannot be 100% sure but i think one of the previous threats was located in something like c:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe if that's of any use to you.

Anyway, here is my DDS log:

Hi tornege,

Firstly, welcome to the Malware Removal Forum. :)
My name is Scolabar, and I'll be helping you with your malware problems.
Logs can take a while to research, so please be patient.

I am currently working under the guidance of the MRU teachers, everything I post to you, will need to be reviewed by them.
This additional review process can add some extra time to my responses, but hopefully not too much.
;)

Your DDS log indicates that your PC is running an operating system no longer supported by Microsoft.
Please read the this notice and confirm you are happy to comply with the requirement to update your system once it is declared clean.


Please note the following important guidelines before proceeding:
  1. The instructions that will be provided are for YOUR computer and system only!
    Using these instructions on a different computer can cause damage to that computer and possibly render it inoperable
    !
  2. If you have any questions or do not understand something, please do not hesitate to ask, don't guess or assume.
  3. Only post your problem at One help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  4. Only reply to this thread, do not start another. Please, continue responding, until I give you the All Clean.
    Absence of symptoms does not necessarily mean that everything is clear.
  5. DO NOT run any other fix or removal tools unless instructed to do so!
  6. DO NOT install any other software (or hardware) during the cleaning process. This adds more items to be researched.
  7. Print each set of instructions, if possible. Your Internet connection will not be available during some fix processes.
  8. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
  9. Note: No Reply Within 3 Days Will Result In Your Topic Being Closed!

Please Note: If you haven't done so already, please read this topic ALL USERS OF THIS FORUM MUST READ THIS FIRST where the conditions for receiving help here are explained.

Please be aware that removing Malware is a hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

In light of this, it would be advisable for you to back up any important files and folders that you don't want to lose before we start.

If you follow these guidelines, things should proceed smoothly. :)
I am currently reviewing your log and will return, as soon as possible, with additional instructions.

Thank you for your patience.

Hi tornege,

Please read these instructions carefully before executing and perform the steps, in the order given.
lf, you have any questions about or problems with, executing these instructions, <STOP> do not proceed, post back with the question or problem before going any further.

Before we proceed please make sure any open programs are closed.

Step 1:
P2P Advisory!

IMPORTANT There are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs installed on your computer.

    µTorrent

As long as you have the P2P program(s) installed, as per Forum Policy, I can offer you no further assitance.
If you choose NOT to remove the program please indicate that in your next reply and this topic will be closed.
Otherwise, please perform the following steps:

  3. Click on the Change/Remove button to uninstall it.
    Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each of the programs listed.
  4. When the program(s) have been uninstalled Close the Programs and Features and Control Panel windows.

Please Note:
By using any form of P2P networking to download files you can anticipate infestations of malware to occur. The P2P program itself, may be safe but the files may not. Therefore use P2P software at your own risk! Keep in mind that this practice may be the source of your current malware infestation.

  2. Double-click on the CKScanner.exe icon to launch the program and then click on the Search For Files button.
    Vista - W7 users: Right-click on CKScanner.exe and select "Run As Administrator" to launch the program. If you receive a UAC prompt, please allow it.
  3. When the scan has finished (- the hourglass cursor will disappear when the scan has completed) click on the Save List To File button.
    A text file will be created on your desktop named ckfiles.txt.
  4. Click on the Exit button to close the program.
  5. Double-click on the ckfiles.txt file to open it.
  6. Then Copy and Paste the entire contents of the file into your next reply.

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
