I have been working with quietman7 on a more general malware forum and he has sent me to to this one for more in depth help.

I have something on my computer that will not let AVG update (stating that access is forbidden) and will not let me run my registry editor. These are the only two for sure problems I have encountered so far. I have another program called Steam that stopped working at the same time as the AVG updater and regeditor, but I am unsure if it is related.

Quietman7 had me download ATF Cleaner and run that. He then had me download and run Dr. Web CureIt in safe mode and also malwarebytes anti-malware as well.

Dr. Web CureIt did find four trojans and it deleted them but nothing else was found by either scanner. I am still encountering my problems.

He told me to run a DDS Scan before posting. I downloaded it and have tried running it numerous times. It comes up with the message in black box but does nothing else. The underscore is blinking and it says it is responding, though I waited over 20 minutes and nothing happened. When I go to quit, it says it is still running. I have no idea if I have script blocking programs on and wouldn't really know if I did. Assisstance would be greatly appreciated!

If you cannot get DDS to work, please try this instead.

Please download RSIT by random/random and save it to your Desktop.
Note: You will need to run this tool while connected to the Internet so it can download HijackThis if it is not located on your system. If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding Rist attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.
  • Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop.
  • Double-click on RSIT.exe to start the program.
  • If using Windows Vista, be sure to Run As Administrator.
  • Click Continue after reading the disclaimer screen.
  • Leave the drop down box set to default: "List/folders created or modified in the last 1 month (30 days).
  • When the scan is complete, a text file named log.txt will automatically open in Notepad.
  • Save the log file to your desktop and copy/paste the contents into a new topic in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here.
Important: Be sure to mention that you tried to follow the Prep Guide but were unable to get DDS to run.
If RSIT did not work, then reply back here.
