Hi. I believe I have a virus or Trojan which is creating scheduled tasks (At1 etc).

Havering read that combo fix can sort this I downloaded cf and also created a text document which in pasted into combo.

I ran the fix and since then al load of my startup components will not load error messages on startup about no idea, Logitech, monitor etc etc. try to load them manually and they show further error messages.

Tried system restore but that has failed and states it could not finish due to av but av was disabled. Tried undo restore but that failed. Tried restore to earlier time and that fails.

Really pigged off now.

System restore undo and then reboot gives the following error
Monitor.exe unable to start correctly 0*000007b
NvTru.exe unable to start correctly 0*000007b
NvBackend.exe unable to start correctly 0*000007b
Origin.exe unable to start correctly 0*000007b
SqueezeTray.exe unable to start correctly 0*000007b
Dropbox.exe unable to start correctly 0*000007b

System em Restore did not complete successfully.

I then choose run system restore again and the highlighted option is Undo System Restore however this brings me back to the same place.

Choosing another restore point does the same.

Any ideas before I slit my wrists?


Thanks.

As a general policy, Bleeping Computer does not offer advice on how to run ComboFix unless we asked someone to run it or if there is a problem with the computer caused by running the tool. We recommend that people should not be using ComboFix without being advised to do so by a trained expert (see here) who is assisting them deal with a malware problem. When issues arise due to complex malware infections, possible false detections, problems running ComboFix (i.e. stalling, hanging, crashing) or with other security tools causing conflicts, experts are usually aware of them and can advise what should or should not be done while providing individual assistance. When false detections are identified, experts have access to the developer and can report them so he can investigate, confirm and make corrections. Those attempting to use ComboFix on their own do not have such information and are at risk when running the tool in an unsupervised environment.

Also be aware that using ComboFix is only one part of the disinfection process. Preliminary scans from other tools like DDS, OTL, RSIT and GMER should be used first because they provide comprehensive logs with specific details about files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection. Analysis of those logs allows planning a strategy for effective disinfection and a determination if using ComboFix is necessary.

While our policy is not to offer advice on running ComboFix unless we asked someone to run it, we are willing to assist with resolving problems caused after using it and we are certainly willing to help with malware disinfection. If that assistance requires running ComboFix, you will be advised what to do in order to get the tool to run properly or investigate any error messages.

If you need such assistance, please follow the instructions provided by hamluis and post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here.

After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can closed this one.

Many thanks for the replies. I believe my problem is solved, I eventually managed to get system restore to complete and this sorted it. I have run full scans using malware bytes antimalware and avast and no problems found. Carried out disk clean etc using glory utilities and it seems to be working fine.

Apologies for the delay in replying.

Mods, you can close this thread.

Thank you all again.
