So I have a virus of some sort. I have a program installed on my computer called Antispyware Soft. I have no idea how it was installed, but its on here! I tried following your preparation guide, but the virus will not allow me to run anything. It just pops up alerts and such ofver and over. Any help so I can clean this out? THANKS!

  • Please continue to reply to this topic until I give you the all clean. Just because there are no symptoms of infection doesn't mean that the computer is clean.
  • If you are running Vista, please run all the fixes as an administrator. This is done by right-clicking the program and clicking "Run as Administrator".
Please do the following so I can take a look at the current state of your system. If you cannot run these programs in normal mode, try running them in safe mode.

We need to run an MBAM Scan
  1. Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
    alternate download link 1
    alternate download link 2
  2. Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  3. Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  4. When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  5. When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  6. Then click Finish.
  7. Run MBAM and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
    If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
    If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here
    and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  8. On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  9. If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  10. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  11. When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  12. Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  13. Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  14. Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  15. When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  16. The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  17. 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 will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.


NEXT:

We need to run RSIT
  1. Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random and save it to your desktop.
  2. Double click on RSIT.exe.
  3. Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  4. Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized)
NEXT:
(This step may produce a blank log. Let me know if that is the case)
We need to run a GMER scan
  1. Download GMER and save to your desktop. Note that the file will be randomly named to prevent active malware from stopping the download.
  2. Close all other open programs as there is a slight chance your computer will crash.
  3. Double click the GMER program. Your security programs may detect GMER's driver trying to load. Allow it.
  4. You may see a warning saying "GMER has detected rootkit activity". If so, select NO.
  5. Make sure all options are checked except:
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive, which is typically C:\
    • Show All (This is important, so do not miss it.)
    Note: If GMER crashes or hangs, please retry running a scan. Only this time, in addition to the options mentioned above, uncheck Devices as well.
  6. When the scan is complete, click Save and save the log onto your desktop.
In your next reply, please include the following:
  • Log.txt
  • info.txt
  • gmer.log
  • MBAM Log
