While restoring some old files to a new PC, started to see some virus like activity, i.e. slow login throuth Instant Messenger, slow display of various web sites. Noticed in the system log files the following message (Process **\MCSVHOST.EXE pid (1860) contains signed but untrusted code, but was allowed to perform a privileged operation with a McAfee driver.)

Tried to open up Mcafee Security Center but nothing opened. Mcafee appeared to be running but could not open up manager to control the application. Booted system into SAFE mode. Mcafee center opened up. Ran scan but nothing was found. Uninstalled Mcafee and tried to reinstall app. This is when i noticed that any website that I went to that used HTTPS would not display. Received the followng error message. IE can not display the webpage. Also tried to open up HTTPS sites with Google Chrome and received the error message that the webpage was unavailable. All other web browsing to NON HTTPS sites work. Tried to download and install Malwarebytes but can not access the HTTPS part of the website to download.

Booted up system with various recovery programs (Avira, DrWeb Live Cd, Kapersky Rescue Disk) All scans ran without detecting any issues.

Ran HJT against system and found one entry that looked suspect. (023 - Service: Sessionlauncher - Unknown owner - c:'users\admini~1\appdata\local\temp\dx9\sessionlauncher.exe (file missing) Used HJT to remove entry. Rebood but original problems still remain.

As indicated by this forum. I ran GMER against my system. When i started it , receive the following error: (C:\windows\system32\config\system: The system could nto find the file specified. I ran the scan and received a similar message about the same file, but this time it said that the file was in use by another process. Scan did not turn up anything to report.

Although the various scans could not find anything....like the old saying goes...if it looks like a duck, smells like a duck and quacks like a duck...it must be a duck.

Any help would be greatly appeciated.

============= FINISH: 13:23:36.90 ===============

I could not resist waiting for assistance so I dediced to investigate the issue further. Upon close inspection of the symptoms, I noticed that the system was identifying any file as "UNKNOWN PUBLISHER" in addition to not allpwing IE to access any HTTPS webpage. I then looked at the properties of individual files that the system had indicated as "unknown publisher" and saw valid publisher details for all files. (The symptoms were obviously pointing towards some issue with Windows 7 UAC.)

I lowered the UAC setting for my profile to (Never notify me of changes) which effectively turns off UAC. The problem suddently went away. Putting UAC settings back to normal returned the system back to it's previous state of Unknown Publisher errors and no HTTPS browsing. I then created another profile to see if the problem moved to this new profile. It did not. The new profile did not exhibit any problems with the UAC setting in it's recommended setting.

I then created a third profile and used this third profile to move objects (data files) from the original profile to the second new profile. It would have been nicer if there was a tool available to move files, account settings, and email files between profiles on the same Windows 7 machine, but i was unable to find them and had to resort to a manual process. Once everything was moved and checked out as operational, I deleted the original old profile.

Looking back on the entire issue, it appears the problem started when i was restoring files from an old backup via Acronis. During this restoration, Mcafee indicated that several of the files trying to be restored contained virus signatures. When these virus warnings appeared during the restore process, i took the option to delete or disable the files Mcafee indicated. Somewhere along this process my Windows 7 user profile's UAC capability became corrupted. I could still logon but had problems as previously described. My initial thought was that one of the viruses got through all the roadblocks and was causing me these problems.

I am still somewhat at a loss as to the root cause of the problem. Either it was Acronis, Mcafee, the files that Mcafee flagged or some abnormality with Windows 7 UAC, or a combination of all three.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates 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. Please also continue to work with me until I give you the all clear. Even if your computer appears to act better, you may still be infected.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.

Once we start working together, please reply back within 3 days or this thread may be closed so we can help others who are waiting.

We need to create an OTL report,
  • Please download OTL from this link.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in:

    drivers32 /all
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\*.sys /90
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s

  • Click the Quick Scan button.
  • The scan should take a few minutes.
  • Please copy and paste both logs in your reply.

In your reply, please post both OTL logs.

If I don't respond within 2 days, please feel free to PM me.
Please don't ask for help via PM. The forums are there for a reason. Please post in the forums so others may benefit as well.
