Hello

 

Over the last week I have noticed a number of issues.  There could be more effects as well that I am yet to notice.

 

 My homegroup network has stopped functioning.  When I go into network settings I noticed network discovery was turned off.  I turned it back on but it does not stay turned on, it turns itself off again.

 

In Windows firewall I cannot adjust any settings, I can only click on use recommended settings and get error code 0x80070424 when I do this.  If I click advanced settings in the left hand menu I get error code 0x6D9

 

Windows Defender seems to have gone,  and is not found in the search.

 

I assume I have got or had some sort of virus, have seen no pop ups or anything like that.  I use Sophos anti virus, when it scans it reports a couple of files as Scan failed SAV interface error 0xa0040202

C:\Windows\System32\config   and   C:\Users\Brett\AppData\Local\Google\Drive\lockfile

 

I am running an up to date version of Windows 7.  As I have a lot of stuff installed I really don't want to have to reinstall windows on this machine so a fix would be fantastic.

 

Any help really appreciated.

You're infected with ZeroAccess rootkit.

It'll require elevated help.

 

Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

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

Reference:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/500504/please-help-with-zeroaccess-rootkit-removal/#entry3099278 .

 

Now that you have properly posted a malware log topic, 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 MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in 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 MRT 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 MRT Team members are EXTREMELY 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 MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

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.

Louis
