Hello,
I will start by saying this is a wonderful site! I was referred here by one of my internet racing friends after posting my problem on our racing site. I picked up a virus the other day through a fake adobe flash player update. I have a Dell GX260 running XP with service pack 3. I have IOBits advanced system care pro, with IO Security360 that I just startrd running since this happen. I have been running and still have Avira Anti virus installed. It informed me of the infection. It was removed, and quarantined, but continues to return. It tells me it is in C:\system volume\...\A0038729exe. This thing put 1036 tracking cookie's in a matter of minutes. I removed them, only to get more as soon as I deleted them. The other problem it causes is it will not let my rfactor racing game start. rfactor hits the internet every time you start the game to verify your license for the game. My friend thinks that this virus is not letting rfactor verify therefore it will not finish it's start up and returns to the desktop. Here is what I have done so far to try and stop this demon. I ran malware buts and cleared everything it found, I ran SUPER antivirus and then removed the 1036 tracking cookie's, ran a full scan with Avira, and a full scan with IOBits Security360. I also tried HIJACKThis to no avail. Now the infection hasn't shown itself today. Avira was warning me every few minutes before. Each time I would remove it just to have it return. And my game still doesn't work. My next move was to reformat the system and start over but I'm out of DVD's to make a back-up of the stuff I don't wand to lose. From all I have read here , I'm sure you'll be able to track this little demon down and kill it.

Thanks In advance

Hello and welcome.
First Turn off System Restore
Steps to turn off System Restore
Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
In the System Properties dialog box, click the System Restore tab.
Click to select the Turn off System Restore check box. Or, click to select the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box.
Click OK.
When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm that you want to turn off System Restore:
You have chosen to turn off System Restore. If you continue, all existing restore points will be deleted, and you will not be able to track or undo changes to your computer.

Do you want to turn off System Restore?
After a few moments, the System Properties dialog box closes.


Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
Download Link 1
Download Link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start 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 definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

I have IOBits advanced system care pro, with IO Security360

In regards to IOBit, please read:
The vendor's dubious methods would not warrant a recommendation from me to use it. Further, IOBIT has even been placed into the Installers Hall of Shame.

Hello, Run your avira again now and see. It was in your System Restore point folder. Just for the record I rarely do that switch off/on thing. After we check Avira I'll post how.

EDIT; For the record I agree with quietman that iusing MBAM over IoBit with Avira is a better play.

Wondering what is going on still. I have totally wiped out all my game files and reinstalled a fresh copy of my racing game and it still will not start. I'm seriously considering reformatting my drives and starting from scratch. What do you guys think?

That would be up to you but it would eliminate any corrupt items or hiddden infection. A format and reinstall wiil bring you back to factory condition. Reformatting a hard disk deletes all data. If you decide to reformat, you can back up all your important documents, data files and photos. The safest practice is not to backup any autorun.ini or .exe files because they may be infected. Some types of malware may disguise itself by adding and hiding its extension to the existing extension of files so be sure you take a close look at the full name. After reformatting, as a precaution, make sure you scan these files with your anti-virus prior to copying them back to your hard drive.
