Hi, my laptop is infected with the Smart Fortress 2012 and I've followed the guide in this forum which would supposedly remove it, but it didn't work. Here's the post I've made about it with all the details: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic447845.html/page__gopid__2645030#entry2645030

So here's this extra info, with DDS, attach.txt and ark.txt and I hope it helps. Thanks in advance

I could only run the dds while logged in as administrator as it kept closing itself when I tried running it on my infected user, it just closed right away like iExplorer.exe and MBAM did... I can only get a glimpse at the cmd window. Hope there's nothing wrong with that

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

Try to run this tool in Safe Mode with Internet Connectivity.

Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

  • Disable your Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
  • Some Rookit infection may damage your boot sector. The Windows Recovery Console may be needed to restore it. Do not bypass this installation. You may regret it.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Posted Image

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Posted Image

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

Note: If you have difficulty properly disabling your protection programs, refer to this link --> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

Do not mouse click ComboFix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall

If unable to run or the log is not generated run this tool.

  • Download OTL to your Desktop.
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in

    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /90
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    c:\$recycle.bin\*.* /s
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\Results\Install|LastSuccessTime /rs
  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply. You may need two posts to fit them all in.

Post the log(s) for my review.

The ComboFix log is clean.

Third party programs if not up to date can be an open door for an infection

Please run this security check for my review.

Download Security Check by screen317 from here.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

Any remaining issues with this computer?

I didn't even try logging in on normal mode, but I can now. Smart Fortress doesn't open anymore. I tried deleting its shortcut on my desktop (should I not have done anything? :x) and it took a while for it to disappear and my antivirus Microsoft Security Essentials popped up saying a threat was found and deleted - the name of the 2 entries that appeared on the history were Rogue:Win32/Winwebsec (both of them) and there files were: file:C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\F4D55F3E00001CC20003ABDBD151FC4E\F4D55F3E00001CC20003ABDBD151FC4E.exe and file:C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\F4D55F3E00001CC20003ABDBD151FC4E\F4D55F3E00001CC20003ABDBD151FC4E.exe
regkey:HKCU@S-1-5-21-1757981266-1979792683-1801674531-1003\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\Smart Fortress 2012
uninstall:HKCU@S-1-5-21-1757981266-1979792683-1801674531-1003\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\Smart Fortress 2012

So I'm guessing that had to do with me removing it... Anyway, I tried running Security check on safe mode and on normal mode and it doesn't work. It just keeps saying "the system can't locate the specified path" and then "file not found - INSTALL.EXE" over and over and a couple of times "PROCESS.TXT". Finally, the log comes up blank. Answering your question, I think everything's fine with the computer now. Thank you!

Looking at your Extra.txt log I suggest you execute this.

Secure your system by updating 3rd party programs.

Your version of Java is outdated and needs to be updated to take advantage of fixes that have eliminated security vulnerabilities.

Check your present version and update as recommended.

If present remove the old version(s) of Java using the Add/Remove Programs applet.



Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions... being exploited in the wild in active targeted attacks...

Get the latest Flash Player

On the top of the page you will be given an opportunity to download the version for your operating system.
Make sure you select appropriate version.

You will also have an option to install the Free! McAfee Security Scan Plus Un-check the box if you are NOT using McAfee's virus protection software.

For the users of Internet Explorer download version 11.
Flash Player 11 (64 bit)
Flash Player 11 (32 bit)

Get the latest version of the Adobe Reader.
Before your download I suggest you unckeck the box on the top right "Include in your download" this is not required. While the installation is in progress you can also deny the installation of any other programs that may be suggested.

When installed remove your old version of the Reader using the Add/Remove Programs applet if present.

Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI)
Secunia PSI is a security scanner which identifies programs that are insecure and need updates.
If interested in security I would download the tool and run it.

Time for some housekeeping

The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

Click Start > Run and copy/paste the following bold text into the Run box and click OK:

ComboFix /Uninstall

Delete the other tools we used.

Surf Safely, and Think Prevention!
