Hello!

I'm trying to help a friend with their machine. They claimed major problems which based on the description was some phony antivirus malware. They said they could not navigate in their browser or even use the most basic functions in their computer. Windows would load as normal and then the "program" would take over prompting them to pay $59.95 to sign up to remove the supposed virus. They shut down the machine, subsequently brought it to me to help fix, I turned on the computer and could not reproduce the problem. The machine could be described as sluggish at worst, but I did notice that there were two antivirus programs installed- norton internet security and webroot antivirus (never heard of that one). Based on the nature of their original description of the problem I decided to come here as I have had great success in removing viruses and malware here in the past and wanted to be double sure that there is nothing wrong with the computer before I return it. Please note- I am not performing this task for payment or profit of any kind- rather just trying to help a less computer literate friend. Also I have not gone any further in troubleshooting the problems here than following the preparation guide for posting in this forum and running a standard Windows "add/remove programs" uninstall of both antivirus programs...one was not activated and the other was expired as of today. Your assistance in analyzing this problem would be greatly appreciated...I thank you kindly in advance.

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.

Please take note:

  • If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know.
  • If you are unable to create a log because your computer cannot start up successfully please provide detailed information about your installed Windows Operating System including the Version, Edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
    • If you are unsure about any of these characteristics just post what you can and we will guide you.
  • Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available.
  • If you are unable to perform the steps we have recommended please try one more time and if unsuccessful alert us of such and we will design an alternate means of obtaining the necessary information.
  • 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.
  • Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review your topic an do their best to resolve your issues.
  • If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
  • Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan again:

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE


We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit Scanner.

Please note that if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows you will not be able to run GMER and you may skip this step.

Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice

Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.


Regards,
Georgi :hello:
