Hello:

New member to this forum but I've used this site quite a bit before.

I rencently was infected with GT Antivirus and I used this site to successfully remove it (I hope).

After I've removed GT Antivirus, I noticed the McAfee SecurityCenter was "Updated". After looking around in it, I noticed that if I clicked on this protection it stated "You have successfully installed Paladin Antivirus"

I had Paladin Antivirus before and I went through the steps of downloading rkill and using malware anti bytes software, and I've tried those steps but it doesn't seem to find this virus.

Please advise - it would be much appreciated as my computer has been out of commision for quick some time now.

Hello Jimbo7.

When you try to use MBAM, what exactly happens? is anything detected?

Additionally, please run the following scan for me.

Please download Rootkit Unhooker and save it to your Desktop
  • Double-click on RKUnhookerLE to run it
  • Click the Report tab, then click Scan
  • Check Drivers, Stealth and uncheck the rest
  • Click OK
  • Wait until it's finished and then go to File > Save Report
  • Save the report to your Desktop
Copy the entire contents of the report and paste it in a reply here.

Note - you may get this warning.
"Rootkit Unhooker has detected a parasite inside itself!
It is recommended to remove parasite, okay?"


If you do, please proceed normally.

~Blade

Oh. . . my apologies. . . I didn't see that you had posted in the log forum. In that case, please disregard my above instructions. The MRT will be assisting you now.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic352619.html 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 MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in 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 MRT 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 MRT Team members are EXTREMELY 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 MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
