Please help! I can't download anything(even in safe mode or off a flash drive). I can run RKill but after I run it, it says "you should be able to run your anti virus program now" but i can't. Every time I click on something it appears at the bottom of the screen as a .exe......

Hi,

My forum name is Dev00790 and I'll be helping you clean up your computer.

I will reply as soon as possible (typically within 24 hours). In turn, I ask that you please respond within 72 hours. If you know you will be away longer than that, I just ask for notice ahead of time.
Please be patient while I assist you.

Some points for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of us:

  • Please do NOT run, install or uninstall any programs, unless instructed to do so.
    • We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.
  • Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
    • Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.
  • Please read every post completely before doing anything.
    • Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.
  • Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
    • A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.
  • I'm currently a trainee in the Malware Removal Training program and therefore my answers have to be checked by a Teacher before they get posted to you.
    There may be a delay due to this. I apologize in advance if this happens. Hold tight while I get the first set of instructions out to you.

NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.

NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.

NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.

Regards, dev00790

Hi

Please do the following next:

:step1:

Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe on your desktop to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click on change parameters
  • Under Objects to scan, check the boxes next to Verify file digital signatures, Detect TDLFS file system, then click OK.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
    Note: If Cure is not an option, Skip instead, do NOT choose Delete or Quarantine unless instructed.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
  • Copy and paste the full contents of that file in your next reply. - If the log is too long, then split it into multiple posts.


:step2:

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links:
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, and allow it to run.
  • DDS will now display a red window with an option screen called DDS: Settings
  • Mark the option attach.txt.
  • Click on Start.
  • If you did not disable a script-blocker that may be part of your antimalware program, you may receive a warning from your antimalware product asking if you would like DDS.com to run. Please allow it to do so.
  • DDS will automatically open both logfiles.
  • You can find them on your desktop as well.
  • Please post the content of those logfiles with your next answer.
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


:step3:

For the issue regarding .exe files:

  • Please take a screenshot of the problem (How to take a screenshot)
  • Save it as a picture file (eg .jpg / .gif) to your desktop using e.g. Paint.
  • Upload the file saved on your desktop to a site like Mediafire
  • Please post the link to the file in your next reply.

Note:
The reasons I ask you to upload the file to a site like Mediafire, instead of posting the picture on BC instead:

1) It would take up a significant portion of your storage allowance.
2) If the picture is subsequently deleted from BC storage, then it would not show in this post anymore.

Regards, dev00790
