Firefox was starting crashing all the times, not always but like never before. It is now removed but i have found this with superantispyware and process-explorer

 

1. iconforamazon.exe in virustotal the same threat was found under a different name.

I have already removed it. do not know the date.

2. pesfdisk.exe

still on the drive, date known.

PESFDISK IM PROCESSEXPLORER PID 2416

WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\PESFDISK.EXE   11.3.2013 ANWENDUNG
WINDOWS\pchealth\ERRORREP\UserDumps\pesfdisk.exe...... 17.3.2013 HDMP-DATEI 17.03.2013
HJTHIS found this:
Plug Icedragon Scheduler2

 

check virustotal and my comment.

 

I have a clean systempartition-backup but before saving back i would like to know if Firefox will not crash again after threat-removal and new installation.

 

run kaspersky, housecall, eset, malwarebytes and superantispyware(i love the latter, has never let me down).

what is this?

WINDOWS\pchealth\ERRORREP\UserDumps\pesfdisk.exe...... 17.3.2013 HDMP-DATEI 17.03.2013

 

didnt recognize this process. 6 days after installation.

will try to find out what i downloaded or installed on march 11?

Thanks for any hint.

I already executed some of the instructions on an older drive.

I have found the threat. My system is seriously damaged by backdoors or one backdoor. as others at a firefox and trojan-forum already have said. but since they closed my thread i will not inform there about what i did but here:

It was hijackthis-forum which helped my found what i wanted to know. this is the forum i know and used for some years.

http://www.hijackthis-forum.de/tipps-tricks/2912-anleitung-zur-bereinigung-von-malware.html

some of the standard-programs like malwarebytes or superantispyware found and deleted some stuff but the very first program listed in the hijackthis-instructions-STINGER finally convinced me to format my systempartition. fortunately i have a backup i made 4 days before the firefox-crashes began.

the backdoors are SUPERHIDDEN in Chrome! quarantined.
