Hi!

Ironically another issue arose. Somewhat similar in nature to the CMD prompt thing I dealt with/dealing with, but this time on a family member's Aspire Switch 10E, and it appears to be serious.

 

Problem: a blank window pops up every 5-10 seconds and just keeps on going and going. Task manager says the file is located in Windows\System32 and it's called 'mshta'.

 

I already installed Ublock so that the she won't fall for Ads and clickbait again however I'm scared to tinker with this Windows file. Please help!

 

Screenshot included

Use the programs below to clean, remove adware and remove malware.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

 

  • download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  • Double-click mb3-setup-1878.1878-3.0.6.1469.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • Then click Finish.
  • Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.
  • When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  • Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
  • The Scan log is available throughout History ->Application logs. Please post it contents in your next reply.

Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.

  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan button.
  • When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
  • download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message

download Zemana AntiMalware and install it

  • Run the application
  • Click "Next" and then Scan
  • When the scan has finished click Next to remove any threats.
  • Click the bars in the top right corner to display the logs, double click your log
  • copy and paste the log into your reply
  • copy and paste the log into your reply

Amazon assistant is mentioned as the source in the image you posted. There was some Amazon App removed from IE.

 

Post the three lists mentioned below using CCleaner.

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for each browser and Scheduled Tasks.

At the bottom right of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste the list of Windows Startups and Scheduled Tasks into your next

post. Please do that.

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Uninstall. On that page you will see a list of programs installed on your computer and at the bottom right of that page you

will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste that list in your next post. Please do that.

Rerun AdwCleaner and be sure to choose Clean when scan finishes. Your posted log does not show you allowed it to remove what it found.

Please post the new log.

I don't see Candy Crush Soda Saga anywhere.

 

Firefox has been uninstalled.

 

Amazon Assistant does not have an option to uninstall, but only to 'modify'. When I click on modify, this is what happens:

I haven't clicked on OK yet. After clicking cancel, I get error messages (in my native language) stating something along these lines: "The installer source is not available. Check if the source exists and whether you have access to it." <<< this is with a white X and red circle error message, and it's title says "Windows Installer". The only option I have is to click OK.

 

After clicking OK, then I receive another error message. Titled "Programs and services" with a black exclamation mark inside a yellow triangle. It displays the same error message as the previous one "The installer source is not available....."

Try using Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware to uninstall the two programs. CCleaner says both of those programs were installed today.

Rather odd.

 

Your Firefox profile was probably not removed. You can remove it by doing Search for Mozilla or Mozilla Firefox or Firefox. Remove whatever is found.

Click on Start > enter Search term(s) in Search box.

 

If after doing the above and you still see the same problem...you will need to start a new topic in the malware removal forum using the instructions below.

 

Please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide starting at Step 6.

  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running FRST which will create two logs.

When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs...start the new topic anyway. Explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

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

 

DO NOT bump your new topic. Wait for a response from one of the Team Members.
