A) Wondering what the process is involved in using the network available to repair or replace the damge caused by some type of trojan malware?


:thumbsup: Installed stopizilla in edition to my, McAfee security. Am I protected, to proceed with any type of "reclamation" project, when directed by a knowledgeable professional?

C) looking for feedback on exactly what attacked my system, and how it can be prevented in the future.



Thanks,
Have a great day everyone

Did the too;s used for removal save logs. Thta is where we can ID the malware names.
you can also run this scanand post it's log,perhaps ther is something left.


Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Here is today's post for the anti malware log. I have been running multiple anti-virus, anti-spyware software packages in edtion to my Mcafee suscription. I have a bad feeling about Mcafee's ability to provide real protection of either scanning or propholactic(sp?) ability but it was recommended to me at purchase by a friend. I purchased stopzilla 6-14 and ran it twice today. I was using the anti maleware malbytes until this past weekend and uninstalled it at microsofts direction after removing the trojan on 6-14. Ms's tech person said that redundantcy in security was not hieghtened security. I also tried to use virtumundo (sp?) over the weekend because I believed I had a rootkit of some sort, because one was listed in the log of a malwarebytes log. I have used super anti-sypware as well up until this event on a few occassions.
Here is the most recent log. Again thanks for your help.

hi
here are the posts from my super anti spyware logs. I know I was instructed to only run one but at the time it seemed unclear to me.

this one was run in safe mode. you know whatever i have or had took my E:/ drive and switched it to a Z:/ drive. Interesting or Alarming? I don't know.
Whatever was received is replicating and updating constantly. as soon as something in a temp file is deleted it reseeds and returns. My task scheduler is not under my control it does whatever, whenever it wants. Curious to know if it's worth alot of effort to fix my system when little (replaceable files) will be lost from wiping drives clean and reloading OS. I won't lose that much stuuf. I just want to prevent it from happening again, if possible.
Thanks Joe

If there is not much to lose than a clean install will eliminate all malware and repair the other problems also Joe.

I'm unsure which way is the besy to proceed and have a couple questiions?

1) Is it possible to get assistance from some at BC to help in removing and reinstalling software. I have all the disks for my system an Inspiron 1525.

2) Is there anything superior in a user or technical sense, to removing amd reinstaling, especially since I have very little in the sense of file loss to experience.

3) what can I do to reasonably protect or prevent this sort of thing from happening or getting out of hand, again?
