Well, to start I'm probably in the wrong section for this if so please redirect me. I'm not quite sure what I have or the extent or seriousness of the problem, that being said I honestly have no idea where to put this thread.

I'm getting tired of playing cat and mouse with this damn virus(s?), you guys are my last hope and I'll get on my knees and beg if I have too. I honestly....have no idea what to do at this point. I don't enjoy feeling so helpless, yes I could wipe my hardrive but I have irreplaceable information I need for work. Plus I don't want to contaminate any more hardrives while attempting to backup the data.

I received a message from my bank about a month ago saying my card security may have been compromised, I received a new card shortly after. I immediately canceled the previous card and set-up the new one. This happened right around the time my PC became infested with adware from hell. It keeps coming up on AVG and PC tools spyware doctor I ether can't remove it, file is not found, don't have sufficient privileges to perform this actions(I'm administrator on my PC so this is wrong), or I remove/quarantine it it and still appears on my next scan .So I'm assuming whatever I have is malicious. This made be one or more viruses. ~dff117.tmp, tribal fusion, and double click are the culprits I believe.


After some Googleing I picked up spyware sometimes lurks in your temporary folder, so I deleted everything in the temp folder via command prompt. Sure enough only one folder is left(more googling implies it's malicious) and it just won't let me delete it. I tried combing through registry values to stop the service so I could remove the damn thing. The registry is simply, way too vast to find anything I'm looking for.

I'm assuming this is bad.

Legitimate?

Any help would greatly appreciated. I'll post my tribal fusion and double click bs when it pops up tomorrow, I swear that **** is like clockwork.

Edit: It does other stuff but the adware is re-occurring no matter how times I remove it. view.admt.com, as.casalemedia.com, ad.doubleclick.net, and googleleads.g.doubleclick.net. I'll post more screenshots as it shows up.

Not sure if this helps, but I'm trying to be informative as possible.

I'm not sure about all the virus stuff, and whether or not you're infected, but as far as being able to delete folders, you may just need to set permissions in Vista.
http://paulstamatiou.com/2007/02/09/how-to...sta-permissions
Although, this may not work for the 'this action can't be completed ...' error. Right click on the file in question and check the properties. See what program is listed as the default, and this may give you some clue as to what's going on.

If it does turn out to be virus troubles, then the best place for you to seek help would probably be in the 'am I infected' forum. They really know their stuff.

The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

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. 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.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Ok, I disabled spybot and I'm scanning now. I'll post the log report after I'm done with the scanning.

It's the least I can do, for you being so helpful and descriptive.

Edit: Jesus, it was worse than I thought it was. 18 infections, and my previous scanners only picked up a fraction of those(and couldn't do squat about them). I'll post logs shortly.

Bit bulky but here it is.

That seemed to solve the problem.

I'll be back in a few days or if that demon adware shows up again before that time.

Hello Nakomis,

I wished to point out that just because symptoms are gone doesn't mean the infection is. Please await further instructions.

Showed up again, right after I opened up my external hardrive. Incredibly vicious malware from hell.

This is after scanning and removing the virus once more from safe mode. AVG keeps picking it up but can't do anything about it.

Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.

A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.

Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)
Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.
