Hello everyone,
I suspect I got a problem but maybe I'm wrong.
I thank you guys in advance for your help.

Edit: sometimes it has happened that I cannot open a web site even so downforeveryoneorjustme.com says that the web site is running.
Just the latest example of web sites I cannot access: eazsolution.com.
  • I started suspecting the problem since Malwarebytes is no more alerting me while sometime blocking access to some web sites.
  • The browsers take "too" long to start up, especially Opera starts with only one tab opened and it takes around a minute, even worse with Firefox 4 tabs opened and web sites take forever to fully load..
  • I experienced some system failures with Windows restarting in loops, finally I loaded the saved system shot created with Rollback System. It seems strange problems happened after I created a system restore point with Rollback then I restarted the computer and had the problem, maybe it's Rollback failure don't quote me on this.
  • Previously I uninstalled Nero (maybe I did something wrong) and the boot system partition disappeared from the BIOS I fixed the problem by resetting the BIOS, another partition from the same hard disk late on just reset its name to a default "new drive". Maybe this is not virus related but just in case.
  • A web user pointed me to "ping.exe" common trojan installed on computers so I did a quick search within Explorer and found many of them, please check the attached screenshot.

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Your version of Java is outdated and needs to be updated to take advantage of fixes that have eliminated security vulnerabilities.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.
https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

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


Java 7 Update 7


Java 7 update 10 introduces important new security controls
You can read about it here.

Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in Adobe Flash Player v11.3.300.264 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.
http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Before your download I suggest you unckeck the box on the top right "Yes, install McAfee Security Scan Plus - optional" this is not required if you are not a McAfee subscriber. 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.

Hi nasdaq,

I upgraded Firefox plugins and even so I knew they were outdated I just was too lazy to deal with, maybe busy life makes people lazy.

I can't see any strange computer behaviour for now except that the browsers take unusually too long to start up and even Opera with just 1 tab opened.
Maybe it depends on the Internet provider because 2 days ago the browser starter quickly, in Australia we know internet is slow, outdated and very very expensive (closed market) also internet relay on US infrastructures which will add more cost to the final product.

Please check the log file and let me know if there any other step to do.

Thanks in advance.

Slow start up issue.

Not required at start up. These programs can be started manually.
If you know that you need them then just leave them alone.
Run MSCONFIF.EXE and disable these processes.

uRun: [DAEMON Tools Lite] "C:\Program Files (x86)\DAEMON Tools Lite\DTLite.exe" -autorun
mRun: [vmware-tray] "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmware-tray.exe"
mRun: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Java\Java Update\jusched.exe"
mRun: [AdobeCS6ServiceManager] "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CS6ServiceManager\CS6ServiceManager.exe" -launchedbylogin

===

Read the article below and decide if you want to run this at start up.

mRun: [SwitchBoard] C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\SwitchBoard\SwitchBoard.exe
S3 SwitchBoard;Adobe SwitchBoard;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\SwitchBoard\SwitchBoard.exe

Hope that will help.

If all is well:

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
===

To remove AdwCleaner.

Please double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Uninstall.
Confirm with Yes.

If you decide to keep the AdwCleaner tool make sure delete your version and download the latest before running it.

Delete the other tools we used.
You can Keep the DDS tool as most forum will ask to see a log before suggesting a fix.

Surf Safely, and Think Prevention!

Surf Safely, and Think Prevention!


Hi nasdaq, done everything as per your so helpful instructions.
I also eliminated more services which started without my knowledge and permission (I really hate this arrogant attitude by software houses) with the helpful Sysinternals.

I'm running EazFix (Windows restore is off) and I still have a restore point since I installed Windows so if things will get ugly, I'll just restore the image so I don't have to reinstall Windows all together.

I sometimes use to surf BleepingComputer forums just for reading stories and for learning about viruses threats although I knew someday it could happen to me! :hysterical:

Thanks again for helpful and professional help. :thumbup2:
