I have a question..I'm helping a friend work on their laptop pc. It appears that there is some type of virus or other mal-ware has infected this pc. I have installed Aviria..it found several issues..but the pc still acts the same. Windows update will not update,The Internet browser gets hijacked and takes you to all different sites no matter what you type in.The Hard Drive will not even defrag. I have tried to download and Install several other programs such as Anti-Malware..and spybot but they wont even Install. Honestly I think he might be better just reformatting...I did see a program on here that I have not seen before (superantivirus) or something like...should I try this one?? Has anyone ever seen or heard of a problem like this?? I'm fairly computer savvy and can fix most if not all problems..but this one has got me scratching my head so far. BTW the OS is Vista home basic

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

  • 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

It appears that the RKILL tool is running...but I am still unable to download superantispyware..the browser seems to work (IE7) until I try to download this program... I will keep trying.

Try running Malwarebytes after RKill has run. Post its log.

OK here is the latest...I finally was able to get RKILL to work on the 4th Link or download..I then tried to run Malwarebytes with the same results...It would not run....I then changed the name of the exe file name to what you suggested on here and it worked. I was able to get rid of 20 different Items..and as soon as I rebooted the pc started windows update and starting updating...I was also able to download superantispyware...I have not Installed it yet, but I am making progress...Thanks so much for your help...as I will keep you posted when I finish up.

That is good news... It sounds like you have it from here. I would recommend posting a GMER log when you are finished...

Please download gmer.zip and save to your desktop.
  • Extract (unzip) the file to its own folder such as C:\Gmer. (Click here for information on how to do this if not sure.)
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security program drivers will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled.
  • Double-click on gmer.exe to start the program.
  • Allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • You may be prompted to scan immediately if GMER detects rootkit activity.
  • If you are prompted to scan your system click "Yes" to begin the scan.
  • If not prompted, click the "Rootkit/Malware" tab.
  • On the right-side, all items to be scanned should be checked by default except for "Show All". Leave that box unchecked.
  • Select all drives that are connected to your system to be scanned.
  • Click the Scan button to begin. (Please be patient as it can take some time to complete)
  • When the scan is finished, click Save to save the scan results to your Desktop.
  • Save the file as gmer.log and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.

OK I will try and do that...now that the computer is working I will have to try and pry it from my friends hands...he is very happy...and it was a great learning experience for me.In the past if a pc got this bad I would just reformat it..but as this was not an option this time..because the recovery disks were not available and on this toshiba laptop there is no recovery partition on the hard drive. So I actually learned something new.Thanks for your help..this is by far the best website of this type by far...I will try and post the gmer log asap.
