Follow up - I am no getting Windows Antivirus Pro popping up all of the time now. I can stop it using Task Manager but it immediately restarts. I re-booted in Safe Mode and am able to access emails and internet.

Hello westonm,

We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware 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.

That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible.

Thank you for understanding.


The weatherman

Hi -
Sorry about the "bumping" - that was not my intention - only wanted to provide all of the information i could.
Anyway - yes I still have the problems - I have tried to download DDS and run it but it does not run. I have downloaded both of the links you provided, and I am running in Safe Mode but the program does not execute. I am having to run in safe modes since regular mode continually pops up Antivirus Pro box - as soon as I unload it, with Task Manager, it pops back up.

Hello. I am PropagandaPanda (Panda or PP for short), and I will be helping you.

Disable Realtime Protection
Antimalware programs can interfere with ComboFix and other tools we need to run. Please temporarily disable all realtime protections you have enabled. Refer to this page, if you are unsure how.

Download and Run ComboFix
Download Combofix by sUBs from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop. If you have already run ComboFix, delete your old copy and download a new one.
Link 1, Link 2, Link 3
  • Close/disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. Refer to this page if you are not sure how.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe and follow the prompts. If you are using Windows Vista, right click the icon and select "Run as Administrator". You will not recieve the prompts below if you are not using Windows XP. ComboFix will check to see if you have the Windows Recovery Console installed.
  • If you did not have it installed, you will see the prompt below. Choose YES.
    Posted ImagePosted Image

  • When the Recovery Console has been installed, you will see the prompt below. Choose YES.
    Posted Image
  • When finished, ComboFix will produce a report for you. Please post the contents of the log (C:\ComboFix.txt).
Leave your computer alone while ComboFix is running. ComboFix will restart your computer if malware is found; allow it to do so.

Download and Run Scan with GMER
We will use GMER to scan for rootkits.

Please download GMER to your desktop. Note that the file will be randomly named to prevent active malware from stopping the download.
  • Close all other open programs as there is a slight chance your computer will crash.
  • Double click the GMER program ******.exe. Your security programs may detect GMER's driver trying to load. Allow it.
  • You may see a warning saying "GMER has detected rootkit activity". If so, select NO.
  • Leaving the settings at default, click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click Save and save the log onto your desktop.
Please include the log in your next reply.

In your next reply include:
-the ComboFix log
-the GMER scan log

Please also tell me of any changes you have made to your computer since you started your topic.

With Regards,
The Panda

Panda -
Thank you for responding to my requests and I appreciate the work you guys do.
Now to my problems - I still have the problems and have not done anything to try and fix it. The instructions say not to do anything until i am told to so something. I am not able to disable anything, about the only application I can run is either IE or Firefox, and Outlook. Everything else that I try to run gives me the message about desot.exe having a problem, or it flashes a DOS screen and closes, I think I caught the desot.exe file name, but it flashes really quickly and I cannot see for certain what it is saying. But it will not allow me to run any program at this time. Previously I had been able to open AVG but since I am in safe mode it would come up in command mode and I didn't see any way to disable or kill it from the command line. If I try to run in non-safe mode I get continual messages about running Antivirus Pro, which I can only kill with Task Manager and then it pop buck up immediately. It seems to be getting progressively worse as the days go by.
I had tried to run DDS as requested by one of your tech a few days ago and it will not run, just flashes the black box and believe it is giving me the desot.exe error.

A bit tougher than I'd thought. I think we will manage though.

Do you have a flash drive that you could transfer files through, or any portable storage media for that matter? Are you able to access the desktop in Safe Mode?

With Regards,
The Panda

I have a flash drive but don't think I have a sticke around anywhere - I could go get one - or I have a mirrow drive D: which is my backup drive that should work ok.

In that case, please proceed skipping the step to disable security programs.

Panda -
It will not let me run ComboFix.exe. It pops up a black DOS box and I think I see the desot.exe name and the end before it goes away. It is pretty fast so I can't say for sure, but I think that is what it is saying.

Please delete your copy of ComboFix. Download a new copy. In the SaveAs window, save it as CF123.exe and try again.

The Panda

I apopogize - I always remember something else - after I send an email. I think I say my D drive was a mirror drive - not a true mirror, in that it isn't real time. It has Acronis Backup and monthly backups. The last backup I have - has the same problems, it was backed up after I started having the trouble. I think the few previous had errors and did not complete all of the way so restoring will lose some data if i have to resort to that.

That should not be a problem. Even if somehow Windows becomes unbootable, we can still recovery files using a bootable disk.

Please see my previous post.

Panda -
Tried twice - renaming, and got same results. It did pause a little longer and desot.exe was the file name at the top of the box.
