Hello bleepingcomputer community, I'm posting here because I wasn't able to figure this out myself (normally I can). I was browsing torrent websites yesterday and probably downloaded some Malware disguised as a torrent. You don't have to condone my actions but I really can't figure this out! I cannot open any program naturally, I have CTRL+ALT+DELETE, than hold done CTRL and click File>New Task (Run...) to open up command prompt. After that, I type in the path to any executable to open it. I've run AVG, Ad-Aware, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and no dice... So, any ideas? Please run me by how to post a HJT log and I will right away.

Also, when I click on a shortcut as I normally would to open a program I get the message... "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

Also again, I cannot boot in Safe Mode.

HJT's don't go in this forum. Only in the http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

Thanks,

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/243398/undectable-malware-mbamavg-cannot-detect/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY 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 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. Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
