1. Boot up takes an hour and a half to be entirely complete.
2. The taskbar initially doesn't show; I have to reset its properties through the control panel, then log off, then log on. This I do about 15 minutes after reboot.
3. The services that are supposed to load automatically don't; I have to launch about 25 services manually, and I can't do this for the first hour and a half after rebooting.
4. Microsoft backup doesn't work. I downloaded and tried to run Cobian 9, but it says it is already running and therefore won't run.
5. Programs take minutes to launch off the taskbar. However, programs in the task manager launch quickly, and Microsoft Outlook runs quite well, as does Google Chrome. But all launches not already on the task manager take minutes to start.
6. I can't uninstall or reinstall TurboTax 2008.
7. I have AVG, Defender, and HiJackThis, and can supply a Hijack report on request.
8. This has been going on for three weeks.
9. Help!

Hi, this PC sounds like a reinstall of the Operating System would be the easiest fix.

But you can try to run a MBAM scan.
Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the

mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe

and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..


***
Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.



If you cannot use the Internet,you will need access to another computer that has a connection.
From there save mbam-setup.exe to a flash,usb,jump drive or CD. Now transfer it to the infected machine, then install and

run the program.
If you cannot transfer to or install on the infected machine, try running the setup (installation) file directly from the flash

drive or CD by double-clicking on mbam-setup.exe so it will install on the hard drive.

Manually Downloading Updates:
Manually download them from HERE and just double-click on mbam-

rules.exe
to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions

(rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that

system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.


Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.32) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • 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. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
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. Regardless 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. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

I installed and ran mbam.exe without difficulty (my internet connection works fine). It found 23 objects and deleted them, and rebooted my computer. The log is shown below; I also ran another log after the reboot and it showed no bad objects.

Just one problem: It didn't help at all! My computer shows the same problems as before, although I now seem to be able to run Cobain 9 backup (and I haven't yet tried reinstalling Turbo Tax). Every click on an icon or on the taskbar results in a delay of several minutes before anything happens, and Windows explore is painfully slow, with a delay of several minutes after each navigation click.

ANY OTHER IDEAS?

I was able to download ATFCleaner and SuperAntiSpyware without difficulty. However, SUPER would not install. The message said "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed" and went on to suggest that I was in Safe Mode (not true) or that the Windows Installer should be reinstalled.

I tried starting the (manual) services 'Application Management' and 'Windows Installer, both of which were stopped. I tried each one individually and both together, four possibilities in all, and got the same message each time I tried to install SUPER. This is pretty much the same problem I have trying to install, uninstall or reinstall Turbo Tax -- there seems to be a problem handling *.msi files.

Now what? Is it possible for me to repair the installer?

By following instructions posted by Microsoft I was able to repair the Windows Installer Service, and, afterwards, I was able to follow your instructions for using ATFCleaner and SuperAntiSpyware. SUPER found lots of adware. I found it interesting that, in Safe Mode, my computer seemed to run at normal speeds: The screen icons (I have many dozens) were "painted" in seconds, whereas this takes around half an hour in normal mode. In any case, when I booted back into normal mode, the speed problem remained. On the other hand I now have a proper taskbar, and all automatic windows services install automatically (although it probably takes an hour and a half). This is real progress!

Alas, I seem to have lost the SUPER log. I think that, back in normal mode, I accidentally started the SUPER install program rather than the program itself, and this may have deleted the log. Should I repeat the entire process?

Is there a way to start in Safe Mode and then enter normal mode one step at a time until I find the process that is causing my computer to crawl?

When you boot into Safe Mode the operating system only loads the bare minimum of software that is required for the operating system to work. This mode of operating is designed to let you troubleshoot and run diagnostics on your computer. Windows Safe Mode loads a basic video drivers so your programs may look different than normal. So this is why you get the speed.

Can we run MBAM yet as this may still clear out the other issues.

RERUN MBAM

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan.
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot.

Also I would like to see if we can run SDFix...
Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.

The MBAM log is shown below. It found nothing. I'll try running SDFix at a later time. Could my problem be due to a corrupted driver rather than a virus?

Take a read here and see if something comes up. Yes it may be a driver.

I don't think SDFix fixed anything. The report is shown below. Although perhaps my computer now takes only an hour to boot up. Interestingly enough, during the 'paint the icons' phase of reboot, the system paints about 9 icons every 2 minutes. The nine are painted quickly, in a second or two, and then there is a 2 minute delay. I have 66 icons on my desktop, so the system takes half an hour to complete this task. On the other hand, as I have said before, Outlook and Google Chrome seem to perform normally. Explore, on the other hand, is incredibly slow: I click on Start, wait 2 minutes, click on explore, wait 2 minutes for a partial list of folders (maybe 5), click on my computer, wait 2 minutes, click on drive C, wait 2 minutes,... My system operates in short bursts of normalcy!

(But I do think we are getting closer.)

How much RAM is installed. How much Total and free space does the Hard drive have?
SDFix removed 2 trojans an reset your hosts file.

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
    Scan Archives
    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

NOW run part 1 of S!Ri's SmitfraudFix
Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Here are the stats for my computer: C: -- 115GB, 92.2GB free. V: (secondary HDD) -- 74.4GB, 45.8GB free. G: (USB portable, used for backup) 232GB, 91.5GB free. Memory: 512MB. Speed: 490 MHz, I think. This is an old (10-years?) computer, but the HDDs and USB ports have been upgraded, and, until recently, it ran fast enough. Indeed, just yesterday I was able to listen to CarTalk on the web without problems, so even now some programs run fast enough even though launching them takes several minutes.

As for Kaspersky, I doubt it will finish running in my lifetime but I'll look again tomorrow.

Then stop it. just run SmitfraudFix.
I feel there are other issues at play here . ONe is probably you need to replace your 512 RAM with a 1 GIG stick or whatever your motherboard allows. have you removed uneeded apps and programs you no longer use,
Or perhaps first we can post an HJT log there and see iff they can find something hiddenl
