My son's computer has been invested by a whole bunch of nasty criders (surfing the web without protection). At last he carried it over to my house for me to look at). While I have some experience (enough to be dangerous). I have to admit I have very little experience with virus's / adware / spyware and the like. I have managed to clean most problems off, but still have the desktop background screen changing on me and posting the WARNING you have been infected by.....install etc (Blue screen Yellow box). SOUND FAMILIAR. Also had the Taskmanger lockout and regedit lockout happening, I have cleared at least one profile and can access that now.

Unfortunately, somewhere along the way the ethernet conection / profile has been compromised and will not allow me to hookup to the net (another problem I will have to fix). Not sure if this is related to the infestation or the removal of infestation. So any log postings will have to be USB'd over to my PC to be uploaded.

Any Sugestions / help would be appreciated.

Please download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
Reboot your computer when done.


run this on the drive and on the good computer


use this guide to download the installer for MBAM


on the good computer practise setting up MBAM and applying the updates manually

here's another program to get on to the usb drive


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Hello Ome and welcome to BC :thumbsup:

I see that you have a HiJack This log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/149876/looks-like-i-have-a-familiar-malware/ Because you have thsi log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
