Hello Spartan

Welcome to Free PC Help

AdAware and Spybot are a bit long in the tooth now and are not the programs they once were.

We'd like to find out if your system may still contain Malware.

Follow the instructions below please.


  • Malware is software designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system without the owner's informed consent.
    It is a combination of the words malicious and software.
    The expression is a general term used by computer professionals to mean a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive, or annoying software or program code.

  • Required Cleanup Steps
    1. Disable the Spybot Search & Destroy TEA TIMER if enabled
    2. Run a Temporary file and cache cleaner (ATF)
    3. Run 2 Anti-Malware scanners
    4. Run an Online Anti-Virus / Anti-Malware Scanner
    5. Clear out old System Restore points
    6. If continued Malware type activity is present you may be asked to post a TrendMicro™ HijackThis™ Log file
The reason to run multiple scanners is to ensure that no single scanner is missing something.
The time it takes will vary depending on your system and your internet connection speed.
Typically the SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes scanners will take between 10 to 90 minutes.
The ESET online scan should take between 1 to 3 hours.
In most cases, these scans will suffice to clean and disinfect your computer.
Heavily infected systems or slower PCs can take much longer to scan and clean.

For best results print the following instructions and bookmark this Web page
To keep this guide printer-friendly, use your cursor to highlight the contents below.
From your browser select File - Print and in the printer dialog box under "Print range"
click the Selection choice to print out these instructions for removal of malware.​
__________________________________________________​

STEP 1
  • Disable Spybot Search & Destroys' TEA TIMER: (if installed)
    1. Run Spybot-S&D in Advanced Mode.
    2. If it is not already set to do this Go to the Mode menu select "Advanced Mode"
    3. On the left hand side, Click on Tools
    4. Then click on the Resident Icon in the List
    5. Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts.
    6. Restart your computer.
__________________________________________________​

STEP 2
  • Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Download ATF-Cleaner from Snapfiles.com to remove un-needed temporary files from your computer that may contain malware.
  • You can also download it from Majorgeeks.com
  • When you run ATF-Cleaner, check the items as shown below for Main.
  • For FireFox, be sure to click on the FireFox tab on top and check the items as shown below for FireFox
  • NOTE: If you don't have FireFox or Opera installed then they will be grayed out and can be ignored
  • Then click on "Empty Selected".
.
__________________________________________________​

STEP 3
  • Install and run the free version (not the Professional version) of SUPERAntiSpyware from SUPERAntiSpyware.com
    • Accept any prompts to allow SUPERAntiSpyware to install the latest rules and infection definition files.
    • You do not have to send them your e-mail address, just click next.
    • You can leave the automated check for updates on.
    • You can uncheck "Send a diagnostic report to research center" if you don't want to send the information.
    • DO NOT allow SUPERAntiSpyware to protect your Home Page settings.
    • On the Top Left select the Scan your computer button.
    • Make sure there is a CHECK MARK on all Fixed Drives.
    • Click "Perform a Complete Scan". Click "Next" to Repair issues found and reboot the computer when prompted to do so.
__________________________________________________​

STEP 4
  • Install and run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Malwarebytes - (direct download)
    • Accept all defaults for the installer
    • Allow the program to update the definitions
    • Click on the Quick Scan and click Next.
    • If any items are found allow it to clean them and then Reboot your computer.
__________________________________________________​

STEP 5
  • Run an online scan with ESET from Free Virus Scan: Use ESET's Online Antivirus Scanner
    • You must use Internet Explorer for this online scan. FireFox, Opera, etc will not work for this scan.
    • Accept the terms and click "Start".
    • Once the scanner is ready, check "Remove found threats" AND "Scan unwanted applications".
    • Click "Start" to begin the scan.
    • When completed restart your computer
__________________________________________________​
Make sure your internet firewall security is enabled, and then please return to Free PC Help and tell us how the computer seems to be operating.
At that time, you will receive instructions to assist you in removing malicious programs from your Add/Remove program list if warranted.

If required this is the download link for TrendMicro™ HijackThis™
Unless instructed to by the Technician helping you then do not download this tool.

Once you and the Technician agree that your system appears to be clean then you should delete all your System Restore points and recreate a new one.
Please follow the instructions here

Wolf HI Again -

Tried all of the above bar the online scanner - it keeps saying It needs Administrative rights to proceed - even though I'm logged in as the administrator. Hmmm
The malware detected some more items, and removed them etc, and I had hoped that solved my problem,bet then my whole pc woouldnt reboot - and was missing a file so i had to repair using the vista disc....

I thought that did it! till about an hour ago, where whats seemed to be a barrage of radio clips came through my speakers. I think these clips could even be recordings, as they are starting to sound familiar, and also one or 2 british voices, indicating the possibility that they may be uk stations. Last time it happened I opened task manager to see what was running, but I couldnt see anything before it stopped.

Im trying Housecall online scanner - seems to be working so far

Anything else I should try as the two malware programs didnt seem to do much...

Thanks loads for your help.

Hi

Right-click on the file for those programs and select "Run as Administrator".

Hi Thanks for the advice but I dont think it will work, as it is a browser based online virus scanner, and will not show files as such. They are ( I guess ) embeded in Internet explorer.

:)

:rolleyes:

I woke up this morning to find my PC off - after perhaps a scan by housecall - on rebooting, I was prompted to start using safe mode etc....
Im going nowhere fast, and rubbish is still making me jump out of my skin when it randomly decides to play!

:mad:

Your system is still infected. Quite honestly the malware removal process should have cleaned it even without the Eset scan. Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware are two of the best programs to be found. Then your problem returned after running a Vista repair.

Where did you obtain Vista?
Did you let malwarebytes clean everything it found?
Did you let SuperAntispyware clean everything it found?
Did you remove the Restore points after cleaning?

I would try that Spartan as Trojans can reside there and re-install from there. It seems you have them too. It's very important that you follow the guide as closely as you can.

Good luck and get back to us please.

I Bougfht Vista from overclockers.co.uk -

I thought it cleaned them but obviously not. I cannot remember removing restore points so I am doing it all again. I am going to remove Spybot aswell, as it keeps popping up with threats etc, and has caused me a crash.

The sound is deffinately recordings of tv or radio shows, and theyre being repeated in some sort of sequence. Its driving me nuts LOL.

Just running SAS again - and there is 42 threats so far - eeeeek

Thanks for your help guys...

:rolleyes:

Hi

I bought Vista From Overclockers.

I didnt remove the restore points. But I ran everything again, and a lot of malware was still present. And on rebooting, I had to do a windows repair, or Vista wouldnt start.

I did evrything and deleted retore points except very recent ones, and there is still malware in the PC.

:(

Hi Guys

Sorry in the delay with this post, family and work commitments have kept me pretty tied up lately.

I appreciate all your help!


Right – getting somehwere removing this Malware, and the random noise seems to have stopped. :D



I started right from the beginning. just after i uninstalled AVG and Spybot.




This is what I have done – hopefully correctly this time :


Turned off System Restore ( yes as described above )



Ran ATF Cleaner as described


Ran SAS again, and again same result.

10 Unclassified Oreans.32

clicked Next and removed them!




Rebooted Pc - and started OK



Ran Malware and it came up CLEAN!
No Trojan BHO showing this time. YIPEE! It didnt ask me to reboot, but i did anyway, just to see if i was still getting a ci.dll error afterwards. - PC Booted OK - Yeeha.



Then I worked out how to run IE as administrator ( doh ) and managed and online scan with ESET - That also came up clean!




Turned ON System Restore




Well chuffed! However, i thought i'd double check ( as you do ) and restarted SAS and the same Unclassified Oreans.32 were still there. Are these " friendly bacteria " or something? When SAS was deleting them, i noticed something saying LEGACY oreans etc....



ALSO - when rebooting my PC - there are 5 internet ( user ) accounts as well as my User account to log into.... They appeared from nowhere lol. DO i remove these manually?




PC seems to be running much better now, but those Oreans are bugging me.




Here is a HTL - all chinese to me, but any feedback would be great!

Why do you have AVG and McAfee running Spartan?

Pokerstars does you no favours either and you could be liable for crap downloaded via Bit Torrent.

Allow our techs to get back to you with further information on this HJT log mate.

Hi Wolfey - wow that was quick thanks bud!

Well - Pokerstars is something I'm on quite often so I can't remove that, but by " running " do you mean it is open in my sytem although the software wasnt open at the time of HT scan? Hmm please shed some more light on this, I'd hate to think Pstars is monitoring something they shouldnt be! I'm also on WIlliam Hill Poker a lot, do they have any hidden running processes too, is this a ploy by Pstars to monitor my play on other sites? AM i paranoid? LOL

Bit torrent i use to catch the odd missed episode of lost, dont doo too many other downloads of any from there, i find it quite usefull.

Now as for Macafee - Good question. I installed it just after Vista, a couple of months back, but read some bad reviews after noticing my PC was slow, so I removed it. No when I reboot my PC I get an error saying the dam thing failed to start. I tried removing the files manually, but it wouldnt let me!!!

As for AVG i thought i saw the back of that too.....:(

Why do these things not fully uninstall?

Thanks again Pal, will wait for the tech guys too....

:D

I'll rephrase on the Pokerstars aspect mate and suggest that it may be ok as would the William Hill site.

I'll let the techs offer further discussion on this when they get on line Spartan.

Hi Spartan.

Let's disable needless programs from automatically starting when Vista starts.

1) Right click on the Vista start icon and choose properties>Customize. Put a check on the Run Command option and click ok.

2) Left click on the Vista start icon and click on run. Type in msconfig and click ok.

3) Put a dot on Selective Startup and click on the Startup tab. Scroll through the list and uncheck all entries other than your security software and jusched. Click apply and ok. Do not choose to restart the computer at this point.

Run HijackThis and choose Scan Only. put a check in the box on all of the items that end with "No file" or "file missing". Do not put a check in any other entries. Now click on "Fix Checked" and restart the computer once HijackThis does its thing.

How are things now?
