Hello,

 

Been having a bit of a laggy pc last couple of days after one of those little pop-up windows with the fake virus detections warning showed itself. I used the task manager to close it out as I have learned not to touch those thing in any way.

 

After that happened I ran several scanners to no avail. While fishing around on this site I came across MBAR and figured what the heck I would give it a try. I worked my way through the tutorial and noticed the warnings about experimental unhooking of rootkits and associated problems with MBAR causing crashes and what not after making changes to ones pc during the removal.

 

Anyway, MBAR did find 1 Malware  and it is listed as (backdoor.0Access)

 

I haven't cleaned it yet for two reasons. I have ran into ZeroAccess bugs before on peoples pc's and also the warnings I read in the tutorial.

 

So I would like to ask

 

Should I go ahead and clean what MBAR detected with MBAR or go a different route?

 

Thank you.

Well, I went ahead and pulled the trigger and cleaned with MBAR. It removed it but did not ask for a restart. I ran it again and it found nothing.....

 

I still am noticeably laggy than just a couple of days ago.  I have been scanning with additional removal tools but so far nothing has been coming up.

 

Something just doesn't seem right.

 

I know I shouldn't add this reply but just wanted to update.

Well.... I recalled a critical update that I installed prior to this issue so I did a system restore back just prior to it but it seems to be persisting with being slow. Both IE10 and Firefox seem to be affected.

 

Currently in safe mode and the issue seems to persist.

 

I reset my router and navigation has improved a great deal.

 

Still it is disturbing about the backdoor.0access detected by MBAR.

 

 

Running scans in safe mode at the moment while I use a different pc.

Hello, this, backdoor.0access detected by MBAR is not an infection you should remove on your own.

 

You should repost  with your MBAR log and a DDS log from this guide.

 

Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.

Let me know if all went well.

Will do

 

I was just popping in with another update.

 

While running in safe mode after the system restore I reran a few scans including MBAR and nothing was detected. I started in reg mode and ran MBAR again and nothing was detected.

 

I decided to run Roguekiller and it detected a few registry entries dealing with disabling tskmgr and what not.

 

Went ahead and deleted them.

 

Anyway, I will do as you suggest.

 

Thank you.

You're welcome, it's worth the look as with a backdoor it allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.
 

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 1 - 2 days and ALL logs are answered.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
