I want  the malware removed.

 

It interferes with my Internet Explorer by slowing the loading way down, apparently because of all the process it has started.  It signs me out of my Gmail account.  It causes an instability with the screen that eventually (within a minute or so) causes the blue screen of death and the memory dump.

Hello! Welcome to BleepingComputer Forums! :welcome:
My name is Georgi and and I will be helping you with your computer problems.

Before we begin, please note the following:

 

  • Since English is not my first language please do not use slang, abbreviations or idioms.
  • I will working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.
  • Stay with the topic until I tell you that your system is clean. Missing symptoms does not mean that everything is okay.
  • Instructions that I give are for your system only!
  • Please do not run any tools until requested ! The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.
  • Please perform all steps in the order received. If you can't understand something don't hesitate to ask.
  • Again I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so. I will not help you if you do not follow my instructions.

 

 

Go ahead and reset the downloads in Internet Explorer this way.

 

 

Next please download the latest version of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

 

 

Regards,

Georgi

Georgi:  Thanks for the email, but my Norton has quarantined it per the
following:

*Updated: *
February 15, 2012 3:15:47 PM*Type: * Other*Risk Impact: * High*Systems
Affected: * Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server
2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP
Behavior
WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low reputation score
based on analyzing data from Symantec’s community of users and therefore
are likely to be security risks. Detections of this type are based on
Symantec’s reputation-based security technology. Because this detection is
based on a reputation score, it does not represent a specific class of
threat like adware or spyware, but instead applies to all threat
categories.

The reputation-based system uses "the wisdom of crowds" (Symantec’s tens of
millions of end users) connected to cloud-based intelligence to compute a
reputation score for an application, and in the process identify malicious
software in an entirely new way beyond traditional signatures and
behavior-based detection techniques.
Antivirus Protection Dates


   - *Initial Rapid Release version *October 2, 2014 revision 022
   - *Latest Rapid Release version *October 2, 2014 revision 022
   - *Initial Daily Certified version *March 27, 2009 revision 005
   - *Latest Daily Certified version *April 20, 2010 revision 024
   - *Initial Weekly Certified release date *April 1, 2009

Now what?

Hi,

 

FRST is a safe program, so please temporarily disable norton real-time protection as described here and then download and run FRST again.

Thanks! :)

Hi,

 

Please download the following file => and save it to the Desktop.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

Run FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply.

 

 

Regards,

Georgi

Hello,

 

Regarding the logs Poweliks is still there so I would recommend you to continue with the fix above. It's your call. :)

Also in the logs above I noticed some leftovers from other malware (probably CryptoWall) as well and a lot of suspicious temp files in the C:\Windows\Syswow64 folder...

 

 

Regards,

Georgi

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
