Hi,

 

I did a scan with EEK today and for the 1st time it alerted me to some problems.  I did a search online to try to get information on the items it listed but didn't really find anything helpful.  Can someone take a look at my log and tell me what these things are?  Occasional scans with Malwarebytes never picked up a thing.  Thanks in advance.

The command prompt and Task manager have been disabled by whom I don`t know.Do you use optimization software like Advance system care or similar? I am guessing at the moment.

Hello ntkbo

These appear to be Rogue antivirup app sysmptoms..

Also run these.

Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.
  • Link 1
  • Link 2
    • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
    • If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
    • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
    • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
    • If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
    • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
  • Do not reboot the computer, you will need to run the application again.
>>>>>

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Important!! When you save the mbam-setup file, rename it to something random (such as 123abc.exe) before beginning the download.
  • Double-click on the renamed file to install, then follow these instructions
  • for doing a Quick Scan in normal mode.
  • Don't forget to check for database definition updates through the program's interface (preferable method) before scanning.
  • If you cannot update Malwarebytes or use the Internet to download any files to the infected computer, manually update the database by following the instructions in FAQ Section A: 4. Issues
Malwarebytes may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • After completing the scan, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab .
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows the database version and your operating system.
  • Exit Malwarebytes when done.
Note: If Malwarebytes encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes from removing all the malware.

-- Some types of malware will target Malwarebytes and other security tools to keep them from running properly. If that's the case, use Malwarebytes Chameleon and follow the onscreen instructions. The Chameleon folder can be accessed by opening the program folder for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (normally C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware).

No, I don't use an optimization software.  Also, I was still able to open Task Manager despite the fact that EEK said it was disabled.

I will get started with the Rkill program.  As far as the Malwarebytes program, I already have that downloaded to my computer and ran a scan with it after using EEK.  It came up clean.  Would you still like me to redownload it again and rename it something else?

 

Thank you

Thank you for your assistance.  It's running fine.  I never even noticed a problem to begin with.  I just ran EEK today because I like to run scans every now and then.

 

Can you tell me why did RKill stop Google Talk?  Was there something wrong with that program or should I delete it?

 

Also what did this mean?:  HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\.exe "@" exists and is set to exefile!

The google file was stopped as possibly bad.
But it was not cleaned by MBAM so it was good.

The other is just saying that that file is properly set.

Reboot the computer to release what rkill stopped..

Looks good , running well ?

I rebooted and everything seems to be running well.  I really appreciate your prompt help throughout the process!  Can you recommend a really good antivirus program?  I don't mind if it's paid.  I have been using Webroot Secure Anywhere but this episode has made me doubt its effectiveness.

 

Thanks again!
