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/459704 <<< 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 should not bother creating a GMER log.

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!

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.
===

From what I understand you cannot execute any file with an .exe extention.

If this is the case go to this page.

http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm

Click on the fix in bold.

EXE File Association Fix (Restore default association for EXE files)

Download the .zip file extract it and run the .exe file from it.

Let me know what problem persists.

Thank you for the assistance! I downloaded the file and unzipped the registry editor. After doing so, when I try to open internet explorer the new window just freezes. Other .exe files will not open when clicking on the icons. Do I need to do anything other than run the registry editor? If so, please let me know! Thank you.

The iexplore.exe file is good.
It's from McAfee. Do you have or had this security program on your computer?
===

Can you start the computer in Normal Mode?

===

  • 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.

The scan is unable to complete. I get the following error:

Dialog box that says OTL:

Access violation at address 0052C047 in module 'OTL.EXE'. Read of address 00000000.


If I then click "ok" to go past the dialog box the scan hangs at:

Scanning: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Program\Startup folder...

Please download and run the following tool to help allow other programs to run. (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com)
There are 3 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.

rkill.exe <- do not use this .exe program.
rkill.com
rkill.scr

It is possible that the infection you are trying to remove will not allow you to download files on the infected computer. If this is the case, then you will need to download the files requested on another computer and then transfer them to the desktop of the infected computer. You can transfer the files via a CD/DVD, external drive, or USB flash drive.

When completed it will create a log. Please post the content on your next reply.

===

After the scan DO NOT restart the computer.

Try to run the OLT.EXE program and post the log.

I will be away from my computer the next 2 days, but will be loading these programs via flash drive since I cannot get the rkill programs to download and run. I will post the log upon my return. Thank you for your help so far!

I have transferred rkill.com and rkill.scr via a USB flash drive. When I try to run either program, I get a brief black dialog box and then the hourglass flashes a few times, then nothing. The programs won't run and create a log. Even after the dialog boxes from either rkill program, I tried to rerun the OTL.exe file with the same error code flashing. Ugh!!!!

Can you copy the files to the desktop and run them from there.

Run Rkill , do not restart the computer and run OTL can you get me a log?

Is there something that could be preventing rkill from running? I have copied the files onto the desktop as well. I have tried running it in both safemode and normal boots with no success.

I have removed AVG, but did have an error when doing so. Is there an uninstall tool that I need to re-run to make sure AVG is disabled completely? I'm figuring next to the virus, the only other thing that could be blocking me is some sort of antivirus software leftover?

Some executables will work from obscure areas. For example, I can use through an old link that I saved, but not by using it's icon or trying to start it through a menu path. Very odd behavior!

Quoted from my post No. 3

From what I understand you cannot execute any file with an .exe extention.

If this is the case go to this page.

http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm

Click on the fix in bold.

EXE File Association Fix (Restore default association for EXE files)

Download the .zip file extract it and run the .exe file from it.


I may have given you a wrong way to do it.

When you extracted the .zip file a .reg file should have been extracted.

Did you right click on it and exported the content?
You should have then received a prompt to confirm the registry change.
===

If that does not work then your Regedit.exe cannot be run.

Will have to find a way to correct this.
