Hello, tonight I turned on my computer to find my background changed to an image saying "WARNING: YOUR COMPUTER HAS.." something something serious virus and a new program called Total Security magically popped up and started scanning. Slightly confused(but not stupid) I stopped its scan only to have a new scan box pop up, which I also stopped. After getting everything back under control, I noticed I couldn't open web browsers. My next step was to use Spybot Search and Destroy which closed itself 40% through. Next I tried a system restore which froze halfway through. After a reboot, I could no longer access any .exe file on my computer. I managed to get a search window open by using the search option in my start menu and used it to "search the internet" for this mystery scanning program. After finding a thread on this site I was able to successfully undo -MOST- of the damage done. I can now access the internet at will and all of my programs, however, I ran Malwarebytes another time after getting rid of Total Security and found another item called:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\Security Center\UpdatesDisableNotify
Vendor: Disabled.SecurityCenter
Category: Registry Data
Other: Bad(1) Good (0)

I attempted to remove it, succeeded, and was prompted to reboot. After the reboot, I scanned once more to be safe and found the exact same file still there, even after it had been "successfully quarantined and removed" from my computer. I was just wondering if there are any more steps I can take to eliminate this once and for all.

Edit: I just re-updated after another reboot and scanned with Malwarebytes again, this time I found 4 files instead of the one.

Welcome to BleepingComputer.

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download DrWeb-CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • After the Express Scan is finished, put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and unheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Apply, Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.
  • When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

Hello Rigel. I just did as you instructed me. I restarted, booted in safemode, opened DrWeb-CureIt, clicked start, hit ok to the virus prompt, and not more than 5 seconds later, the program was forced to shut down due to a windows error. I tried several more times with no luck.

Edit: 3:12PM Friday September 18

After running spybot and Malwarebytes again, I found a total of 22 infected files.

And upon minimizing to post the log, I found my background had been changed again to the same one that I had removed yesterday.

Here is the log from my recent scan:

Good afternoon, I would love it if some one would continue assisting me when convenient now that I have gotten some rest.


Edit: 8:29 PM. Any attempt to remove this last registry entry proves futile as it continues to pop up. If its allowed to sit there it spreads again, reinstalling the virus. Any more help would be -GREATLY- appreciated.

Hello again. I just finished running both a quick and full scan with MalwareBytes and it turned up zero malicious files found. I decided, while waiting, to run through your last set of instructions again and this time I guess it really kicked in.

I'd like to thank you for your time and assistance but as far as I can tell I no longer need this thread open for more guidance.

Have a nice evening/morning. :thumbsup:

You are welcome...

If you wish to do one more scan, run this on line one.

Please perform a scan with Eset Onlinescan (NOD32).
(Requires Internet Explorer to work. If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)
Vista Users be sure to run Internet Explorer as Administrator. To do this, right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select "Run as Administrator" from the context menu.)
  • You will see the Terms of Use. Tick the check-box in front of YES, I accept the Terms of Use
  • Now click Start.
  • You may receive an alert on the address bar that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Insall ActiveX component.
  • A new window will appear asking "Do you want to install this software?" (OnlineScanner.cab)".
  • Answer Yes to install and download the ActiveX controls that allows the scan to run.
  • Click Start. (the Onlinescanner will now prepare itself for running on your pc)
  • To do a full-scan, check: "Remove found threats" and "Scan potentially unwanted applications"
  • Press Scan to start the online scan. (this could take some time to complete)[/color]
  • When the scan has finished, it will show a screen with two tabs "overview" and "details" and the option to get information or buy software. Just close the window.
  • Now click Start > Run... > type: C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
  • The scan results will open in Notepad.
  • Copy and paste the log results in your next reply.
Note: Some online scanners will detect existing anti-virus software and refuse to cooperate. You may have to disable the real-time protection components of your existing anti-virus and try running the scan again. If you do this, remember to turn\ them back on after you are finished.
