Hello,

I hope someone can help me please! I have Windows Vista on my desktop. About a week ago, my McAfee was coming up with Real-Time Scanning disabled, which is seems to do too often. Usually the Virtual Tech will fix everything but this time it didn't. Also the last scan it was able to do was picking up lots of tracking cookies and also 8 Trojans. Per a friend's suggestion, I downloaded a free version of AVG which seemed to be working well until it picked up 3 items in a scan and again, more tracking cookies, neither of which I had a problem with before. System Restore didn't do a thing, it's in there. Also please, be patient with me as I am not very computer literate at all but am trying to save my PC before resorting to factory settings.

I saved my photos and some of the files I wanted to an external hard drive, does that need to be kept plugged in? I was told that will also hold/transfer any viruses or infections from the desktop? A friend suggested the Combofix but AVG is picking it up as a malware threat, not sure if that is a false reading or something is just worming its way around.

The AVG anti-rootkit comes up with these results:
Device/mfehidk01.sys
Corrupted section: ntkmlpa.exe

I've tried everything, that I know of, and no luck. I'm paranoid about doing anything on my computer. Please help me if you can, thanks !

LAst scan just has the Device/mfehidk01.sys, the other thing, ntkmlpa.exe, has not come up now. I've read online that this may be associated with McAfee, which is still installed but not running--is this a valid driver or a rootkit? I only have a trial version of AVG installed so when that expires I will be left with nothing yet McAfee won't run, should I just uninstall McAfee? I'm getting tons of junk mail, tracking cookies and overall things are not running right. . . .

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer!

I am HelpBot: an automated program designed to help the Bleeping Computer Staff better assist you! This message contains very important information, so please read through all of it before doing anything.

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.

To help Bleeping Computer better assist you please perform the following steps:

***************************************************

Posted Image In order to continue receiving help at BleepingComputer.com, YOU MUST tell me if you still need help or if your issue has already been resolved on your own or through another resource! To tell me this, please click on the following link and follow the instructions there.

CLICK THIS LINK >>> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/logreply/420486 <<< CLICK THIS LINK



If you no longer need help, then all you needed to do was the previous instructions of telling me so. You can skip the rest of this post. If you do need help please continue with Step 2 below.

***************************************************

Posted Image If you still need help, I would like you to post a Reply to this topic (click the "Add Reply" button in the lower right hand of this page). In that reply, please include the following information:

  • If you have not done so already, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.
  • A new DDS and GMER log. For your convenience, you will find the instructions for generating these logs repeated at the bottom of this post.
    • Please do this even if you have previously posted logs for us.
    • If you were unable to produce the logs originally please try once more.
    • If you are unable to create a log 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.
  • Upon completing the above steps and posting a reply, another staff member will review your topic and do their best to resolve your issues.

Thank you for your patience, and again sorry for the delay.

***************************************************

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


As I am just a silly little program running on the BleepingComputer.com servers, please do not send me private messages as I do not know how to read and reply to them! Thanks!
