Possible Root Level Infection or Memory Issue After Windows 7 Updated

Posted 29 April 2014 - 02:20 PM

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium on a quad core PC with 4gb of RAM. A few days ago when this started when rebooting, I noticed Windows showed it was updating. I'm not sure if this was prior to or after the reboot. The reboot did not complete. I attempted a system repair and a system restore in normal mode but neither would complete. I also tried this using the Windows install DVD. When I rebooted in safe mode, I was able to restore to a restore point yesterday and the computer started normally. At this point, I disconnected the machine from the Internet and scheduled a boot-level scan in Avast. I also disconnected my external USB drives and thumb drives. 


There were a few files that always false flag for Avast but they weren't important so I let Avast delete them. Not system files just very old ebook files, etc. Next up, Avast flagged a file that appeared to be a root level file surrounded by { } with a series of numbers but I can no longer see what it is on the screen after trying the various options (besides Ignore). I've tried repairing, moving to chest, repairing and deleting. 


I get Error Oxc0000243 {The requested operation cannot be performed on a file with a user mapped section open.} if I try moving to chest. If I try to Fix Automatically Delete or Repair, I get Error 0xC0000035 {Object Name already exists}.


My only remaining option iwas to 'Ignore' or 'Ignore All' so Hit ESC to cancel the scan.


I restored to an earlier point. The problem, however, is a patch is already loaded and ready to install and it's the patch, whether a real patch or virus masquerading as one, loads when I reboot to try a new boot level scan. 


When I try restoring to the earliest available restore point from 12 days ago, I get the following error:


System Restore Did Not Complete Successfully. 

Your Computer System Files and Settings Were Not Changed. 


Details: An unspecified error occurred during system restore. (0x8000ffff)


UPDATE: I ran Repair on the Windows 7 Install disk in safe mode. It could not be repaired. Among the test data, I saw the following;


Boot Manager: Generic Failure



And further down after tests that passed...


Root Cause Found: A Patch is preventing the system from starting. 


Repair action: System files integrity. Check and Repair 

Result: Failed. Error code: 0x490


I was able to restore the PC to an earlier point without the patch in cue for the next re-start. However the machine still seems sluggish and I'm concerned there's a root level virus or some other issue.


It was suggested in my original post that I might have a memory problem. I did do a full diagnostic with the Windows 7 Install disk and it reported no errors. Here's my log...

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

Nothing suspicious was found on your DDS log.

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here

Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
  • Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
  • Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
  • If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the Apply Actions button.
  • While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can also be viewed by clicking the History tab and then selecting Application Logs.
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click the Scan button and wait for the process to complete.
  • Click the Report button and the report will open in Notepad.
  • If you click the Clean button all items listed in the report will be removed.

  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click the Scan button and wait for the process to complete.

Download the correct version of this tool for your operating system.
Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (64 bit)

and save it to a folder on your computer's Desktop.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
