This eke thing was in my system configuration startup a few days ago and tried to run a dll which generated an error, and got my attention, that the dll KBDacrc.dll was blocked for some reason. I can't find my all notes from that session, but I ran MSE and it found "it", and removed it. I rebooted, and there was a similiar wacky name ayikuzogazinaf in the startup programs, so I repeated the process again. Things seemed better, but there was still an instance of the offensive second file in the registry, so I manually removed it.
I am running VISTA Ultimate SP1
All seemed well, but now this eke thing is BACK! Running MSE again, which had been hanging up on wmplayer.exe - just sitting there. My scan is running now... eke thing says it is loading a dll named KBDacrc stored in my c:\users\myname\appdata\local folder This time there was no error about it being blocked - I just went to check the configuration file since the computer was squirrelly again.
I have a second new entry that I cannot account for in my system configuration as well. It's for a realtek AC97 Event monitor, which sounds legit, but it is looking for a suspicious dll evecowopo in the same directory as the one the eke thing is looking for.
I have googled all these names to no avail. I have never not found a legit file name in a google search, so I am looking to see if anyone has heard of this file. Wish I could print the system config info - can't even expand that screen to see it all at once
I've had problems on & off since Dec 10 when I ran my mouse over something on Facebook (spawn of the devil) that seemed to have a popup that didn't pop to the screen- just a feeling that "something happened", but half an hour later I had that thing that was running the screaming ads in the background. I'm pretty sure I posted here about it, and I never saw anyone really come back to any of the similiar threads and post a resolution. I had to back up to a restore point and then I finally got rid of it after some RKILL and several MBAM passes over days as the database got updated.
I then had a narcoleptic computer - the dang thing would just drop off to "sleep mode" in the middle of me typing a sentence such as this. And then it would go back to sleep while I was trying to type in the password!!! I have to pull the power cord to get it to reboot frequently. Just hangs up...
Never really found anything that dealt with that, but MSE found a few low level things. MBAM didn't find any issues with this as I recall. At any rate, the dang thing stays awake now, sometimes not going into sleep mode at all even though it's set to do so.
I had AVG still trying to load despite repeated attempts to delete/uninstall it. I saw that I needed to reload to uninstall, so I tried that, and it didnt get rid of everything. I went into safe mode and manually deleted the rest of it after a long battle. I'm an old VMS guru, and it makes me crazy that Microsoft won't let me delete stuff off of my desk and shoot myself in both feet if I want to do this... I am used to having God-like powers as system manager and I am losing my mind here.
I have two separate back external drives, and I have literally copied all my data files to them. About all I may not have backup for at present is TurboTax. I have been advised by several friends to go to Win7 but I am worried that I will find myself missing a bunch of drivers and have to relearn yet another freaking MS OS. I've been using this computer & VISTA for almost three years now, and things worked just fine for me until December and I think I have spent more time "fixing" this thing than using it!!!
Sorry to run on like this, sort of venting, waiting to see if MSE finds anything today, then will run MBAM again. I do have a lappie I could sit next to this desktop and try to poke at the desktop with it offline, disconnected from the net, etc.
Thanks for listening! Please do let me know if anyone knows anything about this eke thing or its devil spawn, please at least let me know I have company in my misery.
