OK... So i've got a malware infection, fake scanner is called Security Central. The infection is KILLING ALL .exe files and not allowing them to start. I've downloaded Malwarebytes randomized exe file and even changed the name as recommended by a couple of other fixes... but still, it gets killed.

Now EVERY other potential fix i've come accross is to DOWNLOAD a file and run it. WELL... that's the trick! nothing will run! The virus is killing them at startup.

PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS!!!!

ok , try this

C:/Windows/System32 look for taskmgr.exe

copy the file to my documents and rename it to explorer.exe , the reason i sey explorer.exe is because it is a known dependency to some malware and it wont disable that from starting , then once you have got task manager open look for a suspicious process all numbers or just one thats using alot of the CPU

You can also try to run RKill first. It should kill the malware thats fighting you.
RKill....

Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.Link 2
Link 3
Link 4
  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
  • If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
You will need to run the application again if rebooting the computer occurs along the way.

I did this, and it worked to get the task mgr open... and i killed a process that was named Security Central which is the fake scanner's name... it was a CPU hog too... YES! Download mbam again and am in the midst of CRUSHING all remaining Malware!!!!!

Am i the only one who loves the feeling when you know that you are not going to have reformat your entire pc and ruin a beautiful weekend with this bleep!!! Thanks for the help! you are the man!

Hi I'm resurrecting this thread because I'm having the same issue. I did rename the task manager as explorer.exe but I have not found out which program is causing the issue. Once, I killed one that was using a ton of resources but it forced my computer to shut down. I just wonder if there isn't any other advice someone might be able to give me on what exactly I could be looking for. I ended a ton of programs safely so far and it allows me to install malwarebytes but not run it. :thumbsup:

What other info might I provide to help you help me? I'm running XP service pack 3.

Hello run RKill.... It may require several runs,then run mBAM and post the scan log.

Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.Link 2
Link 3
Link 4
  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
  • If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
You will need to run the application again if rebooting the computer occurs along the way as the malware programs will start again.


Or use FixExe.reg

FixExe.reg

Once open, double-click on the FixExe.reg file. When Windows prompts whether or not you want to allow the data to be added to your computer, click on the Yes button.

I am also having this same problem. I ran the rkill and it didn't help fix my problem. I also found the taskmgr.exe file, copied it to my documents and renamed it explorer.exe but couldn't open it. So I currently can't run malwarebytes, can't open any exe files on my computer and am redirected to bogus websites when I do yahoo searches and am redirected to bogus search engines. Can someone help me??? This is my work computer and don't want to get in trouble over this virus. Oh, I also occasionally get just in time script pop ups and get the 707 error when attempting to run the malwarebytes program.

@laurad121

Now that your log is properly posted, 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 Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it 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 Malware Removal 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 Malware Removal Team members are very 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 Malware Removal 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.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
