First, I want to thank you for making time to help those plagued by the idiots who manufacture malware. Secondly, I recently acquired the AKM Antivirus Pro. I'm pretty sure its an updated version because it is defeating your advice. Using your advice I was able to get Malwarebytes to run a complete scan one time. I rebooted and a bunch more pop-ups of failed files arose. I'm having the same issues everyone else is having... all my antivirus software is worthless, I can access Firefox, but I can't install anything with teeth because it appears AKM has been reading your site as well and is changing their program to block your advice.

Because AKM has so excellently infiltrated my CPU my Windows Installer is malfunctioning (read - unable to download a registry cleaner), PROCEXP can run but I'm unable to locate the necessary files to kill the processes (because I'm computer illiterate), Fixexe.reg wouldn't work, and AKM has shut down my "restore" abilities.

Here is my HijackThis log... PLEASE HELP. Please keep in mind I, "hunt and peck", so you may have to dumb-down your lingo for me.

The above named file was on my computer, AKM Anti-virus 2010. I deleted the file and was able to run Malwarebytes one time. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough and when I rebooted in normal mode the virus or its brother was back but much less aggressive. When I rebooted the pop-up ads to purchase the Antivirus were gone but the computer was extremely slow and froze on simple commands. I did receive two additional pop-ups referring to either infected files or missing dlls. (I don't recall the message and the computer freezes too soon to try and get them to show again).

Windows Defender, Installer, Restore are all infected and inoperative. Tried a bunch of removal variants you suggested such as Fixexe.reg, registry reviver (or something like that), defogger, procexp, and rkill without success. I've tried to download adaware and a few other programs but the installer and blocked "updater" is quashing my dreams of using a different program than Malwarebytes. Currently, the error code for Malwarebytes is "code:2"

AVG seems infected/tampered with. I don't maintain any other main antivirus software.

I'm fairly inept when it comes to computers. If you walk me through the steps with simple commands I can kill this darn (read - explicative) virus. I very much appreciate your help. Thank you.

Hello Hunt and Peck smile.gif Welcome to the BC HijackThis Log and Analysis forum. I will be assisting you in cleaning up your system.


I ask that you refrain from running tools other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.



In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Options. If you click on this in the drop-down menu you can choose Track this topic. By doing this and then choosing Immediate E-Mail notification and then clicking on Proceed you will be advised when we respond the your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.


Please keep in mind that we have a large backlog of users just like yourself waiting to be helped so try to be as timely as possible in your replies. Since we do this on a part-time voluntary basis we are limited on how many logs we can respond to and keep open due to time restraints. If you have to be away or can't answer for some other reason just let me know. Thank you for your understanding.



After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.





Let's see if you can get the following to run: You may have to rename it to something you can remember when you download it.




Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. Instruction can be found HERE
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.


When finished, it will produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.









Note: Please post the log in the reply window and do not make it an attachment. Do this with all subsequent replies unless I ask otherwise.







Thanks,
