I got some nasty virus or trojan on my computer. I cannot remove System Security. I cannot run Spybot & Destroy in Safe Mode. I cannot run Hijack This in Safe Mode. I will click to open the programs and nothing happens. I cannot System Restore in Safe Mode. I click next and my computer does not restore. I have ran AVG in Safe Mode and it does not come back with any virus or trojan scanned. I cannot open the registry. I have tried to open it through the run command regedit and a window does not pop up. I do not know what else to try.

Please download and scan with Dr.Web CureIt.
Follow these Instructions for scanning with Dr.WebCureIt in "safe mode" after running ATF-Cleaner.
If you cannot boot into safe mode, then perform your scan in normal mode. Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.
-- Post the log in your next reply.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2

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. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • 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 definition 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. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

-- If you cannot use the Internet or download any programs, try downloading from another computer (family member, friend, etc). Save to a flash (usb, pen, thumb, jump) drive or CD, transfer to the infected machine, then install and run the program(s). If you cannot copy files to your usb drive, make sure its not "Write Protected".

Some types of malware will disable Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it and changing the file extension. <- click this link if you do not see the file extension
  • Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file, rename it to mysetup and change the .exe extension to .scr, .com, .pif, or .bat.
  • Then double-click on mysetup.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to begin installation.
  • If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files.
  • Right-click on mbam.exe, rename it to myscan and change the .exe extension in the same way as noted above.
  • Double-click on myscan.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to launch the program.
If using Windows Vista, refer to How to Change a File Extension in Windows Vista.

I forgot to include that when I did a google search and clicked on the link I was being redirected to the incorrect site. I had to copy and paste the URL to view the link. I was able to download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. I could not open it, so I had to rename the file and extension to launch the program. After the scan it fixed a lot of the problems. I can run Normal mode when before System Security would not let me click anything, not even run task manager. Almost everything is working now. I would like to scan the C: drive for errors. I have tried right clicking on the Local Disk C: icon, clicking properties, tools tab, error checking, check now, I click both options then start and I get an error message that says " Windows was unable to complete disk check ". I have also tried using the run command " chkdsk /f/rC: " and a window does not open. Any suggestions for checking for errors.

Please post the results of your MBAM scan for review.

To retrieve the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan log information, launch MBAM.
  • Click the Logs Tab at the top.
    • The log will be named by the date of scan in the following format: mbam-log-date(time).txt
      -- If you have previously used MBAM, there may be several logs showing in the list.
  • Click on the log name to highlight it.
  • Go to the bottom and click on Open.
  • The log should automatically open in notepad as a text file.
  • Go to Edit and choose Select all.
  • Go back to Edit and choose Copy or right-click on the highlighted text and choose copy from there.
  • Come back to this thread, click Add Reply, then right-click and choose Paste.
  • Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Logs are saved to the following locations:
-- In XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs
-- In Vista: C:\Documents and Settings\Users\All Users\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs


Chkdsk is a disk error checking utility that verifies the logical integrity of a file system. As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors which slow down hard disk performance and make data writing difficult. Chkdsk scans the hard drive and will check the files and folders for file system errors, lost clusters, lost chains, and bad sectors. When encountering logical inconsistencies in file system data, it will perform the necessary actions to repair the file system data.

Chkdsk will create and display a status report for a disk based on the file system and will list and correct errors on the disk. If used without parameters, chkdsk displays the status of the disk in the current drive. Chkdsk scans the disk structures and disk surface for possible errors and inconsistencies in separate phases. During the first few phases, it checks the FAT or NTFS for lost clusters, cross-linked files and inconsistent directories. When these steps are completed, it asks you whether you want to run a full scan, during which it actually reads every single sector to prove that it is readable.

"lost clusters" are clusters that are neither in the free chain nor in any used file.
"cross-linked files" are two files that both claim to use the same cluster.

Chkdsk can be run from the Recovery Console (correct way), the command prompt or through the Windows GUI.

The main thing that keeps utilities like Chkdsk from running successfully is having other programs running in the background. Chkdsk will not check files that are being used by Windows so using Chkdsk in the Recovery Console with the /r switch is a way to resolve this.

• The command chkdsk /p (only availabe in the Recovery Console) does an exhaustive check of the drive and corrects any errors.
• The command chkdsk /r locates bad sectors and recovers readable information. It will scan the surface of the disk for physical errors in the disk scan phase only and indicates that chkdsk should try to recover the data.
• The command chkdsk /f is available from within the Windows GUI and is the equivalent to chkdsk /p.

Note If you specify the /r option, the /p option is implied. When you specify the chkdsk command without arguments, the command checks the current drive with no options in effect.

The Recovery Console command paramters are explained here. For additional command SYNTAX, to include the Windows GUI, see here.

Now rescan again with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware but this time perform a Full Scan in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to check for database definition updates through the program's interface (preferable method) before scanning and 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.

Your database shows 1945. Last I checked it was 2137.

If you cannot update through the program's interface and have already manually downloaded the latest definitions (mbam-rules.exe) shown on this page, be aware that mbam-rules.exe is not updated daily. Another way to get the most current database definitions if you're having problems updating, is to install MBAM on a clean computer, launch the program, update through MBAM's interface, copy the definitions (rules.ref) to a USB stick or CD and transfer that file to the infected machine. Copy rules.ref to the location indicated for your operating system. If you cannot see the folder, then you may have to Reconfigure Windows to show it.

This one is still on my computer.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\uacinit.dll (Trojan.Agent) -> Delete on reboot.

I'm doing some more research on trying how to delete it. One site was calling it a Rootkit Sentinel.

I click yes to and restart my computer; however, it starts up as normal and Malwarebytes does not start up on the reboot.

Any ideas on how to remove it.

uacinit.dll is related to nasty variant of the TDSSSERV rootkit. Rootkits, backdoor Trojans, Botnets, and IRCBots are very dangerous because they compromise system integrity by making changes that allow it to by used by the attacker for malicious purposes. Many rootkits can hook into the Windows 32-bit kernel, and patch several APIs to hide new registry keys and files they install. They can disable your anti-virus and security tools to prevent detection and removal. Remote attackers use backdoors as a means of accessing and taking control of a computer that bypasses security mechanisms. This type of exploit allows them to steal sensitive information like passwords, personal and financial data which is send back to the hacker. To learn more about these types of infections, you can refer to:If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised and change each password using a clean computer, not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. If using a router, you need to reset it with a strong logon/password so the malware cannot gain control again. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach. Because your computer was compromised please read:Although the rootkit was identified and may be removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume the computer is secure even if the malware appears to have been removed. In some instances an infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired so you can never be sure that you have completely removed a rootkit. The malware may leave so many remnants behind that security tools cannot find them. Tools that claim to be able to remove rootkits cannot guarantee that all traces of it will be removed. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read:Should you decide not to follow that advice, we will do our best to help clean the computer of any infections but we cannot guarantee it to be trustworthy or that the removal will be successful. Some infections are difficult to remove completely because of their morphing characteristics which allows the malware to regenerate itself. Sometimes there is another hidden piece of malware which has not been detected by your security tools that protects malicious files and registry keys (which have been detected) so they cannot be permanently deleted. Disinfection will probably require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum. Before that can be done you will need you to create and post a DDS/HijackThis log for further investigation.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very 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 "bump" your post or 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.

This link was very helpful. I used avenger.

http://www.myantispyware.com/2009/01/24/ho...uacdsys-trojan/

Use the following instructions to remove UACd.sys trojan.

Step 1: Disable UACd.sys trojan driver.

* Right click the My computer icon. If you are using the non classic Start menu, then right click My computer icon on your Start button menu.
* Click Properties.
* Click Hardware Tab.
* Click Device Manager.
* In the top menu, click View and click Show Hidden Drivers.
* Scroll down to non Plug and Play drivers.
* Click + at left.
* In the list of drivers right click UACd.sys.
* Click Disable.
* Click YES for confirm.
* Close all windows and reboot your computer.

Step 2: Delete UACd.sys trojan driver and malware files.

* Download Avenger from here and unzip to your desktop.
* Run Avenger, copy,then paste the following text in Input script Box:

Drivers to delete:
UACd.sys

Files to delete:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wJQs.exe

Then click on ‘Execute’.
* You will be asked Are you sure you want to execute the current script?. Click Yes.
* You will now be asked First step completed — The Avenger has been successfully set up to run on next boot. Reboot now?. Click Yes.
* Your PC will now be rebooted.

Step 3: Remove UACd.sys trojan files and any associated malware.

* Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM). The program designed to quickly detect, destroy and prevent malware, spyware, trojans.
* Once downloaded, close all programs and Windows on your computer (including this one).
* Double-click on the icon named mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
* When the installation begins, keep following the prompts in order to continue with the installation process. Do not make any changes to default settings and when the program has finished installing, make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select “Perform Quick Scan”, then click Scan.
* MBAM will now start scanning your computer for malware. This process may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* MBAM will now delete all of the files and registry keys and add them to the quarantine.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.

UACd.sys trojan creates the following files.

%System%\uacinit.dll
%System%\drivers\UAC[RANDOM CHARACTERS].sys
%System%\UAC[RANDOM CHARACTERS].dll
%System%\UAC[RANDOM CHARACTERS].log
%System%\UAC[RANDOM CHARACTERS].dat
%Temp%\tmp[RANDOM NUMBERS].tmp

If you need help with the instructions, then post your questions in our Spyware Removal forum.

I was able to check the C: drive for errors. During this process I had disabled System Restore. Now that everything is working I am going to enable System Restore and create a restore point.

Thanks for the help!

You're welcome.

I am familiar with that link which advises the use of advanced tools for removal but it is not comprehensive enough. As I said, disinfection would require the use of more advanced tools but they are not permitted in this forum. Thus, I referred you to the proper forum where they are used on guidance and supervision. Anyway, I'm glad to hear you were able to remove the infection.

Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:Keep Windows and Internet Explorer current with all critical updates from Microsoft which will patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer. If you're not sure how to do this, see Microsoft Update helps keep your computer current.

Avoid gaming sites, porn sites, pirated software, cracking tools, keygens, 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. Malicious worms, backdoor Trojans IRCBots, and rootkits spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming, porn and underground sites. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious 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.Keeping Autorun enabled on USB (pen, thumb, jump) and other removable drives has become a significant security risk due to the increasing number of malware variants that can infect them and transfer the infection to your computer. To learn more about this risk, please read:Many security experts recommend disabling this feature as a method of prevention. Microsoft recommends doing the same.

...Disabling Autorun functionality can help protect customers from attack vectors that involve the execution of arbitrary code by Autorun when inserting a CD-ROM device, USB device, network shares, or other media containing a file system with an Autorun.inf file...

Microsoft Security Advisory (967940): Update for Windows Autorun
