So I've had this problem before but I think it was an older version like 2010 or something. I had two malware removal programs already: Combofix and malwarebytes. They took the malware out no problem and it was all good. But now this one popped up. I ran malawarebytes once with a quick scan. And it seemingly removed it, but I said why not? Lets run combofix just in case malwarebytes missed something. And by the way, Im a novice to say the least when it comes to comes to computers. Well when I ran it, it restarted my computer just like last time. But when it came back on my keyboard and mouse pad on my laptop wasnt working so O couldnt sign into my laptop. However I had an usb mouse nearby so I plugged that in and signed into guest. Thats when everything went crazy. A window popped up titled C:\ComboFix\pev.3XE. And it said something like Access is denied. And Im rapidly getting hundreds and hundreds of these with blue and black window popups with that same title that all say nothing. There is another window that pops up titled HotkeySewrvice and it says can't find touchpad device. And another window titled AUSUHWIO.DLL and it says Can't open WinNT Service Control Manager. Does anybody know whats going on? My computer is unusable but thank god for my iPhone.

Thank you very much for your help. It is kind of difficult to download anything on my desktop because of all the rapid popups that appear on my screen. Do you think there is anything I can do?

Hello


try ion safe mode


try to download from a clean computer and move by usb


if you can do those things thing run these first



I would like you to download these programs if you don't have them yet to the desktop and have them ready to use .

RKill - exeHelper - Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Unhide.exe


After you have them on your desktop restart your computer and as soon as you can start with RKill

:Rkill:

  • Double click on Rkill.
  • A command window will open then disappear upon completion, this is normal.
  • Please leave Rkill on the Desktop until otherwise advised.
Note: You will likely see a message from this rogue telling you the file is infected. Ignore the message. Leave the message OPEN, do not close the message. Run rkill repeatedly until it's able to do it's job. This may take a few tries. You'll be able to tell rkill has done it's job when your desktop (explorer.exe) cycles off and then on again.

Once the tool has run, do NOT reboot the machine,
If for some reason the machine reboots, repeat the process. Again, try not to restart the machine.

Scan with exeHelper:

Please download exeHelper to your desktop.

  • Double-click on exeHelper.com to run the fix.
  • A black window should pop up, press any key to close once the fix is completed.
  • Post the contents of exehelperlog.txt (Will be created in the directory where you ran exeHelper.com, and should open at the end of the scan)

Note: If the window shows a message that says "Error deleting file", please re-run the program


Next I want you to run the unhide.exe program just double click to run it.

: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware :

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is Checked (ticked) except items in the C:\System Volume Information folder and click on Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. please copy and paste the log into your next reply
    • If you accidently close it, the log file is saved here and will be named like this:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt

Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.


Let me have these logs and let me know how the computer is doing
