Hey there.

So somehow a file called mplayer_Setup.exe was downloaded to my desktop from the web. AVG found this to be an infected file and cleaned that, I believe... or I deleted it, but AVG is still reporting "Adware Generic5.ODL" that it cannot cleaned.

I've tried in safe mode and I've tried MalwareBytes in Chameleon mode. When my machine has been booted normally, my AVG scan only runs for 1 second, scans zero files and says my computer is clean.

It's reporting the file here:
c:\System Volume Information\_restore{8D290BB5-E59C-462B-A0EE-E8949A1E4344}\RP1203\A0090242.exe

Any help would be appreciated... I was trying to stream a football game that I didn't get in my area, and that's probably how it happened.

I've now deleted the suspect file location.

My AV (avg) still isn't scanning any files so I'm a little nervous that there's still something wrong.

I haven't received a message from my AV that I'm infected in some hours.

However, my internet speed... at least my upload speeds seem to still be slower than they should be.

I cannot connect remotely to my PC via VNC from other PCs on my network.


so, while I think I've deleted a second infected file... I'm not certain that I'm clean.


... I would appreciate some help with some deeper cleaning if possible.

It's reporting the file here:
c:\System Volume Information\_restore{8D290BB5-E59C-462B-A0EE-E8949A1E4344}\RP1203\A0090242.exe


These are your your system restore files.hat is your operating System??


I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image
      icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.

For the connection try these...

Please click Start > Run, type inetcpl.cpl in the runbox and press enter.
Click the Connections tab and click the LAN settings option.
Verify if "Use a proxy..." is checked, if so, UNcheck it and click OK/OK to exit.


Now check if the internet is working again.


OR

Go to Start ... Run and type in cmd
A dos Window will appear.
Type in the dos window: netsh winsock reset
Click on the enter key.

Reboot your system to complete the process.



Let's do this next,then scan with AVG and see if sees that any more. .

Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been backed up, renamed and saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Posted Image > Run... and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" tab, then click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
