Hello, when I right click -> open new tab a secondary tab opens with a website I did not ask for and/or a new window pops up with several tabs open with errors. I can not remember what the errors say at this moment.

I had a virus having to do with windows 7 anti-virus. I ran Malwarebytes as I usually do every couple of days (should I do this?) and it got rid of several infections.

I now have this window popping open deal, and rather than run Malwarebytes which didn't work this time as far as I know, I decided I'd come to bleepingcomputer and have the professionals help me.

Thank you!

  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.

1. You're not running any AV program.
Install ONE of these:
- Avast! free antivirus: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html
- free Microsoft Security Essentials: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/products/security-essentials
- free Comodo Antivirus: http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/antivirus.php
Update, run full scan, report on any findings.

2. "hosts" file is missing.
Open Notepad.
Paste the following text into it:

# Copyright © 1993-2006 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handle within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

Go File>Save As and...

1. Name the file hosts. (no extension; make sure there is just a "dot" at the end <--- VERY IMPORTANT!)
2. Make sure, "Save as type:" is set to "All Files (*.*)
3. File is saved to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC folder

Posted Image

NOTE.
If you receive You don't have permission to save in this location message take ownership of C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc folder: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/add-take-ownership-to-explorer-right-click-menu-in-vista/
If the above doesn't work save the file to some known location, like your desktop, copy it from there and paste it to "etc" folder.

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

Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2

64-bit users go HERE
  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Vista\Win 7 users:: Right click on SystemLook.exe, click Run As Administrator
  • Copy the content of the following box into the main textfield:
    :dir
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

3. You seem to have an issue with Security Center.
Let's double check...
Please download Farbar Service Scanner and run it on the computer with the issue.
  • Make sure the following options are checked:
    • Internet Services
    • Windows Firewall
    • System Restore
    • Security Center
  • Press "Scan".
  • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
  • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

What AV program did you install?
Did its scan find anything?
How is redirection?

You have several registry keys missing.
Your Windows firewall and Security Center are not working.

Let's start with fixing Windows firewall issue.

Following steps involve registry editing. Please create new restore point before proceeding!!!
How to:
XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948247
Vista and Seven - http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/create-a-restore-point-for-windows-vistas-system-restore/


Download Seven.zip file from here: http://www.smartestcomputing.us.com/files/download/9-registry-network-keys/
Unzip the file.
You'll find several files inside.
Right click on bfe.reg file, click "Merge".
Allow registry merge.
Right click on mpssvc.reg file, click "Merge".
Allow registry merge.

Restart computer.

Click Start and in "Start search" type in:
regedit
Press Enter.

Registry editor will open.
Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFE
Right click on BFE key, click "Permissions"
Click on Add button, type Everyone and click OK.
Now click once on Everyone
Below, in "Permissions" pane checkmark "Alow" in "Full control" row.
Click OK.

In a set of files you downloaded in previous step find start_services.bat.
Right click on it, click "Run As Administrator" to run the fix.
Command prompt black window will pop-up for a split second and it'll disappear. That's normal.

Check on firewall issue and post new FSS log

What AV program did you install? Avast
Did its scan find anything? Yes. All but one were contained or deleted. The one that couldn't be deleted was C:\Windows\assembly\GAC_32\Desktop.ini
How is redirection? Haven't had a problem yet. Avast is constantly finding Trojan Horses though.

Created a system restore, did the bfe.reg and mpssvc.reg merges.
Computer wouldn't restart. I had to restore the system to the point I saved it at.

system restore failed to replace C:\Windows\assembly\temp\u with it's original from the restore point.


I also cannot open Firefox now. IE does work, though.

Should I continue with the regedit, or are there other directions?
