Posted 04 October 2009 - 07:49 PM

I was wondering if someone can help me, as I'm at a loss as how to fix the above problem - which in AVG was coming up as Max++. As described on previous topics, this evil monstrosity has decided to stop all my virus protection/spyware pro and malware remover software from working. After researching online on how to remove the infection the problem got worse. As soon my laptop starts up onto my desktop I get a warning telling me that my laptop will be restarting in sixty seconds. My Wonder Woman wallpaper has been replaced by what looks like the blue screen of death - really, it's just a blue background.

So, starting up in normal mode isn't an option. And as much as my instincts tell me to throw my laptop out the window, I have a nursing portfolio to hand in this coming Friday. If anyone could help, I'd be grateful.

I'm not very good at working this out for my help, as vista just confuses novices like me. But I can follow instructions. Can anyone help me?

It won't be removed by Friday. Rootkits are very stubborn

Please download Win32kDiag.exe by AD and save it to your desktop.

  • This tool will create a diagnostic report for me to review.
  • Double-click on Win32kDiag.exe to run and let it finish.
  • When it states Finished! Press any key to exit..., press any key on your keyboard to close the program.
  • A file called Win32kDiag.txt should be created on your Desktop.
  • Open that file in Notepad and copy/paste the entire contents (from Starting up... to Finished! Press any key to exit...) in your next reply.

    --------------------------------------
Go to Posted Image > Run..., then copy and paste this command into the open box: cmd
Click OK.
At the command prompt C:\>, copy and paste the following command and press Enter:
DIR /a/s %windir%\scecli.dll %windir%\netlogon.dll %windir%\eventlog.dll >Log.txt & START notepad Log.txt
A file called log.txt should be created on your Desktop.
Open that file and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

Thank you for your help. I have managed to get my new laptop back to. So I'm good to go.

Now that you were successful in creating those two logs you need to post them in our HJT forum:
First, try to run a DDS / HJT log as outlined in our preparation guide:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

If it won't run, don't worry, just give a brief description and tell them that these logs were all you could get to run successfully

Post them here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

The HJT team is extremely busy, so be patient and good luck
