Alright, so this is the first time I've found myself needing to ask for help when I've had a problem with my computer. Any other time, I've been able to scan through others posts and figure out a fix, but this time, I'm stumped. I wouldn't call myself an expert or anything, but I've been using computers for the better part of three decades, and I've learned a thing or two in that time. This site has generally always seemed to have had the best help offered, so I'm going to try here first.

So here's my story:
Several months ago I had a hard drive failure in my laptop. I replaced the hard drive, and started from scratch with a fresh install of Win7, and only programs I deemed absolutely necessary (FireFox, OpenOffice, MBAM, CCleaner, Microsoft Security Essentials, one game, Spore, and a few FF plugins, FireFTP, Adblock Plus, and Firebug), and I didn't really need anything else. I don't really trust free antivirus software (hence no AVG or Avast or the like), and because I had always had problems with viruses and malware and the like before the new hard drive, I had decided to specifically avoid going to any suspicious sites, or downloading anything questionable. A few weeks ago, I had spilled some soda on the keyboard and had to get it replaced and I just got it back the day before yesterday. During the time I was waiting for it to be returned, I decided there was a program I needed, but couldn't afford the $300 bill for it, so like an idiot, I decided to go against my policy of wariness and downloaded it off a torrent and installed it. I am currently repenting because of the problem I'm currently having.

Now, as far as the problem, it seems I have been infected with the goingonearth virus (or whatever it is). I don't know how (and others who have had this goingonearth problem don't seem to have had this problem, judging by what I've seen during my searches for a cure), but somewhere between the infection, and running MBAM and CCleaner, it took out Windows Security Center service, which in turn, took out Microsoft Security Essentials, and Windows Defender (all of which give me some error about not having any enabled devices), leaving my computer defenseless. I can still use it for all the things I usually use it for, but searching for anything on Google gives me the redirect to a blank page on goingonearth.com that seems standard with this particular bit of nastiness, which is a bit annoying, but my main concern is the lack of protection my computer is having.

I've run MBAM and CCleaner a couple dozen times by now, the last several times turning up nothing on MBAM, and no registry errors in CCleaner. I also uninstalled everything I installed over the last two days (except for the Windows updates, and the upgrade to FireFox 5.0), deleted all the files I downloaded, and cleared them from my recycle bin. I tried running a system restore three times now, each time it had some error and didn't work. I tried popping in my Win7 disc and running setup to see if reinstalling it on top of what I got would overwrite whatever is causing the problem with Security Center, but it told me I couldn't install it because I needed to update my BIOS. I downloaded and ran the BIOS update thing, but it told me it wouldn't update because the computer needs to be plugged in and have a battery installed. Problem with that is that the battery on my computer hasn't worked for at least 4 years now. I have all my data backed up on an external hard drive, so if absolutely necessary, I can do a hard drive reformat, and reinstall from the ground up again, though I'm concerned about the whole needing to update my BIOS thing being an issue since, unless I'm mistaken, BIOS isn't something stored on the hard drive, but on the motherboard itself. But I'd rather that be a last resort type of thing. I've also tried downloading and running TDSSkiller and a scan with ComboFix, both of which turned up nothing (though in all honesty, I couldn't tell you what a single thing on the ComboFix log means, so I don't really know if that would have done me any good anyway). I've also run TrendMicro's Housecall online virus scanner program, but to no avail.

I apologize for the long post, but I wanted to be as thorough as I could be, and I hope I didn't ramble on too much. I'd like to get this resolved as quickly as possible, so I would appreciate any help I could get, as I'm on day two of trying to fix this issue, and I'm starting to get at my wit's end. I'm willing to try just about anything to get my computer back to 100%.

That looks good.

Go Start and in "Start search" type in:
services.msc
Press Enter.

Find Security Center service.
See, if it's running and if it's set to automatic startup.

Ah, yes, I've tried that several times in my quest to get things running again. It always ends up shutting itself down within a minute or so, and anytime I try to turn on Windows Defender or Microsoft Security Essentials from within, it gives me an error saying "The Service cannot be started, either because or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. (Error code: 0x80070422)" (the error code comes from Windows Defender, Microsoft Security Essentials gives me the same text, but no error code).

Perhaps the last response was a bit hasty, as it seems to not be shutting itself down this time. Perhaps this is progress? I don't know, but it's still not letting me run Security Essentials or Defender yet.

If you have MSE installed it'll automatically disable Windows Defender (which is rather useless anyway).

What happens when you try to run MSE?

It gives me the little red house with a flag and a white X icon in the system tray, the window comes up plastered with red, and tells me "Security Essentials isn't monitoring your computer because the program's service stopped. You should restart it now." When I hit the Start Now button, it pops up with the error message I mentioned a little bit ago. MS's help site for the program gives me no help (not like I expect much from Microsoft's help databases). Ending the process from Task Manager and restarting it doesn't help, nor does rebooting and running it.

Well, this is interesting. I had uninstalled/reinstalled it earlier today when I was having trouble keeping Security Center running. After I read your last post, I figured, why not give it another shot? Lo and behold, this time it worked! I got it up and running, let it do it's update/initial scan thing (which turned up no results). Now that problem seems solved. I just tried to see if it was giving me the goingonearth redirect thing again, and this time, it seems to be googling things fine. This leaves me puzzled as to what it was that actually fixed the problem (after all, it would be nice to know how to repeat the fix if something similar happens again). I'm also slightly concerned as to whether or not it will resurface. I had noticed a thread somewhere from someone else who was trying to rid themselves of this virus, and they said they had it resolved but it ended up coming back after a few restarts. I also had the redirection issue solved for a while before it started doing it again as well.

Oh well, hope for the best, prepare for the worst. The help was greatly appreciated. I hope I never have to ask for it again. :)

Hmmm....interesting.
I'm not sure what happened.

Your Event Viewer reports:

Error: (07/21/2011 03:46:15 PM) (Source: Disk) (User: )
Description: The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block.


1. Click Start, click Run, type chkdsk /f /r, and then click OK.
2. At the command prompt, type Y to let the disk scanner run when you restart the computer.
3. Restart the computer.
4. Chkdsk will run.

Let me know if any issues has been found.

Also....

Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC)
Double click on TFC.exe to run the program.
Click on Start button to begin cleaning process.
TFC will close all running programs, and it may ask you to restart computer.

Yeah, I was a bit concerned with the bad block bit when I saw it, too. Wouldn't that be taken care of with a disk defrag though? I was planning to do that soon, anyway, since I've yet to do that on this hard drive since I installed it back in November.

No issues came up with chkdsk or TFC.

ESET didn't give a "List of found threats" button or anything to push, presumably because it found no threats.

No, defrag doesn't deal with bad blocks.

For a peace of mind....
Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 (or http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=28744&hl=hard+drive+diagnostic)
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), to make the CD bootable.
For Toshiba hard drives, see here: http://sdd.toshiba.com/main.aspx?Path=ServicesSupport/FujitsuDrivesUSandCanada/SoftwareUtilities#diagnostic

Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps HERE

===========================================================================

1. We need to reset system restore to prevent your computer from being accidentally reinfected by using some old restore point(s). We'll remove all old restore points and create fresh, clean restore point.

Turn system restore off.
Restart computer.
Turn system restore back on.

If you don't know how to do it...
Windows XP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310405
Vista and Windows 7: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/disable-system-restore-in-windows-vista/

2. Make sure, Windows Updates are current.

3. Download, and install WOT (Web OF Trust): http://www.mywot.com/. It'll warn you (in most cases) about dangerous web sites.

4. Run Malwarebytes "Quick scan" once in a while to assure safety of your computer.

5. Run Temporary File Cleaner (TFC) weekly.

6. Download and install Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI): http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/. The Secunia PSI is a FREE security tool designed to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs and plug-ins which expose your PC to attacks. Run it weekly.

7. (optional) If you want to keep all your programs up to date, download and install FileHippo Update Checker.
The Update Checker will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to FileHippo.com to see if there are any newer releases.

8. When installing\updating ANY program, make sure you always select "Custom " installation, so you can UN-check any possible "drive-by-install" (foistware), like toolbars etc., which may try to install along with the legitimate program. Do NOT click "Next" button without looking at any given page.
