Hello! I am so new to all of these! I already searched for the removal of these viruses and read in a lot of forums. All of these forums have logs, etc. involving the precious system files. I don't even understand the logs and I have read instruction on how to remove these but they do not guarantee anything. I am afraid that the PC might malfunction and be sent to the Repair Shop again. (It just got sent 4 days ago) I ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and scanned my computer and found 46 infections. It shows the option that removes the selected files but I'm afraid because these files are categorized as 'Registry Keys, Registry Values, Memory Modules, and Registry Datas'. Should I delete them anyway?

And so, I want a professional, expert, etc. in all of these since I am such a sucker to all of these virus removal stuff.. I want that pro to walk with me through all of these. From the very first step to the very last and that is when the virus will be wiped out.. Please help..

Please copy/paste the MBam scn log for us to review.

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 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.
  • 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 may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Reagardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

The registry values in question are the bad things that the malware put on your system. You need to get rid of them.

Believe me, they are assuredly not precious.

Seriously, I would run nothing but the repair programs. No Firefox or anything else during repairs.

Also, I would use the repair instructions in other parts of this forum, but do not use the Hijack repair information given to others. That is particular to each computer and can easily be misinterpreted. Only follow instructions for your own log when or if you figure out how to post one.

Ok, I already did a full scan last night, it took me 1 hour or so. I'm gonna perform another full scan again 1 hour later because I have to go somewhere. Then, I can post the log. Thanks for the reply bloopme and Herk (I almost thought no one would help)! I so appreciate it especially when I am such a newbie to all of these virus-removal stuff. I sure hope that this PC would be fine.. :thumbsup:

Oh and after the restart, these prompts showed up:

"Apoint.exe - Bad Image

The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\ddcCTnKd.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

"Rundll32.exe - Bad Image

The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\pvpqgmdu.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

"%1 is not a valid Win32 application."

I had no other choice but to click on OK button.

I hope the files are removed.... :flowers:

BTW: How did I know that I had the vundo? Well, my automatic updates were turned off and I wanted to turn it on. I went to service.msc and set Automatic Updates to automatic. After clicking the start button, it got Error 1058. I searched for it in the net and I found out that it was one of the symptoms of a Vundo virus. :thumbsup: Oh well, now that I've 'removed' the infected files.. can I turn the Automatic Updates on now?

Rescan again with MBAM (Quick Scan) in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Also let us know how your computer is running and if there are any more reports/signs of infection.

That is the log after the files were removed. It didn't ask me to reboot so I didn't. The PC is working well. I already turned on the Automatic Updates by the way. I hope it really is fixed...!

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection, be sure to read:
• "Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe".
• "How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!".
• "Best Practices - Internet Safety for 2008".
• "Hardening Windows Security - Part 1 & Part 2".
• "IE Recommended Minimal Security Settings" - "How to Secure Your Web Browser".

• Avoid gaming sites, underground web pages, pirated software sites, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs. They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to avoid these types of web sites and not use any P2P applications.

Read P2P Software User Advisories and Risks of File-Sharing Technology.
