AVG Turned Off & won't turn on - Can't ID virus

Posted 28 October 2010 - 09:57 AM

I'm working with my brother's laptop. He has Vista Home Basic as his O/S. He had AVG 2010 - free version. Somehow Cyber Defender was also installed. He noticed parts of AVG were turned off, figured he needed the new version, tried to install AVG Free 2011 then getting all sorts of "bad image" errors. He has tried running different anti-virus and anti-spyware packages and scans. He also couldn't get Cyber Defender to uninstall, even uninstalling from Safe Mode. He called Cyber Defender and they had him do the same thing he'd done 50 times and this time it said it uninstalled.

I created a bootable USB flash drive, cold-booted from that and ran an AVG scan, which reported tracking cookies and a few minor issues but didn't find a major problem. I've gotten the laptop to the point where AVG 2010 is uninstalled and 2011 is installed and he's no longer getting the "bad image" errors, but AVG features are turned off and report errors when trying to turn them on, and ComboFix reports Cyber Defender is still active. To my mind these are classic virus symptoms, but I can't identify the virus and removing whatever he's got is beyond my skill set. I need some help with this. Thanks very much in advance.


I downloaded and ran the latest HiJackThis:

Couldn't wait. Took other route to solution, and I don't see option to delete original post. Thanks anyway.

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
