Dear software tech experts,

Like many others, I get the screen message :"Warning! Spyware detected on your computer..." upon starting in normal mode. Safemode does not have the screen message.
I noticed a few affected users who received help through forums like this one. They were asked to post the log result from "Highjack this".
You will find the log result, copied below.
Note: I have scanned and attempted to remove the problem files using SUperAntiSpyware and Avast 4.8. Both found all sorts of infections: Trojan, Rookit, worms. But none of the two have been able to kill or fix this warning screen.
The malignant software has also tempered with the system restore functionality: Cannot go back in time to find a previous known safe restore point. Also, my screensaver and desktop menus are gone.
I don't go directly on the internet anymore with this computer but, while all this was new to me, I would be bombarded with several unwanted sites when asking for a totally different site.

Can you help in leading me through the proper steps to cleanup this laptop mess?
Also note: It is possible that I have deleted some infected system files when prompted by Avast. Thus I might need to find ways to restore files as well.

Thanks a million

Richard

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. We aim to provide the valuable service known to come from BC to every member we can, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine. If you have not done so, include a description of your problem, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below a staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to create an OTViewIt Report
  • Please download OTViewIt by OldTimer.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the OTViewIT icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • Click on the Run Scan button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
  • OTViewIt.txt <-- Will be opened
  • Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized
If you have not downloaded HiJackThis yet:
Posted ImageClick here to download HJTInstall.exe
  • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
In your reply:
  • Fresh HJT log
  • OTViewIt results
Thanks


Harry
