Ok, I once again turn to the experts as my limited knowledge of computers has been exhausted. Here's the scenario.

I came home and started my computer, at startup completion I get an error and my symantec firewall will not enable.

Things I've done:
1. Updated virus files and run virus scan
2. Updated ewido and run scan
3. Downloaded and run Symantec Automated Support Assistant
4. Attempted to update and run AdAware but it to was missing a file and wouldn't run
5. Uninstalled and Reinstalled Symantec Corporate Edition
6. Searched for the supposed "missing" file and found it where it was supposed to be
7. Compared my applications running against your library and many seem to be originated from worms and various other malware

HEELLP!

Hi SifuCarl, :flowers:

We're studying your log right now and will be back to you a.s.a.p.

Thanks for your patience. :thumbsup:

Hi SifuCarl,

Welcome to BleepingComputer Forums and thanks again for your patience.

1.

I came home and started my computer, at startup completion I get an error and my symantec firewall will not enable.


Assuming you already checked your firewall settings can you be more specific (as specific as possible please) about the error message you've got?

2. Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". This will change from what we know in 2006 read this article: http://www.clickz.com/news/article.php/3561546
Additional info: http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_137262.htm
I suggest you remove the program now. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present.

* Viewpoint
* Viewpoint Manager
* Viewpoint Media Player
* Viewpoint Toolbar

3. Run HijackThis, click Scan and checkmark the following entry:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KernelFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k

If you agreed to remove Viewpoint manager checkmark the following entry as well:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ViewMgr] C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager\ViewMgr.exe

I am a big believer in having nothing in your trusted sites. The only advantage to have a domain in your trusted sites, is that it wont prompt you when installing software. This also means, that if a new exploit comes out where a site can spoof their domain to one that matches one in your trusted sites, then you will never know when they install software on your machine.
As these sites will still be able to install the software on your machine, even if you dont have the O15 entries, by just hitting yes to the prompt, I suggest leaving those empty.

If you agree checkmark this entry:

O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com

Close all browsers and windows, except for HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button; close HijackThis!

4. Using Windows Explorer (to get there right-click your Start button and go to "Explore"), please delete the following folder in bold if listed:

C:\Program Files\Viewpoint

5. Download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.

6. You're using an outdated version of Java (latest one is Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0). Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please update and remove the older versions. Do the following:
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Software icon > add/remove programs.
  • Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment.... )

    It should have next icon next to it: Posted Image
    Select it and click Remove.
  • Then Download and install the newest version from here:

    Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0
Please reboot and post a fresh HijackThis log for review.

Falu,

Thanks and I didn't think you took very long at all, as opposed to my reply.

I did as you instructed, and truthfully I don't even know what I was using viewpoint for anyway.
1. I removed viewpoint.
2. Fixed the items using HijackThis.
3. Downloaded and ran ATF Cleaner for both ie and firefox.
4. Removed and downloaded/installed newest version of Java.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the symantec security suite. I noticed when the programs were not on the computer the error messages went away but putting them back on and things went to back. Trying to open the firewall center does no good. I've tried enabling and disabling the windows firewall and those settings make no difference.

I'm thinking what I need is a way to wipe all traces of symantec from my computer and do a reinstallation. I've used the same files to install onto my son's new computer and everything is just fine so I know my copy of symantec is good.

You asked for a more detailed description of the error message. On startup of windows a Symantec error pops up.

Symantec CCApp
A necessary component for this function is missing or damaged (C:\PROGRA~1\SYMANT~1\SYMAN~1\SYMFWAGT.DLL)

[link] Click here to go to Symantec Technical Support Knowledge Base...

1002,1

option to click OK

Thats the error as it pops up. I have a screenshot of it if you want me to send it to you.

When I shutdown windows an IE error pops up.

Internet Explorer Script Error

! An internet error has occured in the script on this page

Line: 561
Char: 3
Error: 'MainFrame.m_aWizardsPanels' is null or not a object
Code: 0
URL: res://C:\Program%20Files\Symantec%20Client%
20Security\Symantec%20Client%
20Firewall\CfgWzRes.dll\CfgWizRoadmap.htm

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

Yes No

Ok, thats in in a nutshell. What do you think of completely wiping symantec from my computer and reinstalling. If you think its a good idea please tell me how because I'm a big dummy :thumbsup:

Thanks again,
Sifucarl

Hi SifuCarl , :flowers:

Thanks and I didn't think you took very long at all, as opposed to my reply.


No problem.

I'm thinking what I need is a way to wipe all traces of symantec from my computer and do a reinstallation. I've used the same files to install onto my son's new computer and everything is just fine so I know my copy of symantec is good......

.....What do you think of completely wiping symantec from my computer and reinstalling.


I think that's a very good idea.

To remove Norton completely use the Norton Removal Tool.

If you think its a good idea please tell me how because I'm a big dummy


I'am sure you're smart enough to reinstall it again. :thumbsup:

Please let me know if the problem persists.

Ok, did the uninstall using the norton removal tool, restarted the computer and reinstalled using the same files that I put on my son's computer. While the program was not on of course the errors go away but after the reinstall everything goes back to the same.

One thing I noticed is that when I go to open the firewall application the computer seems to recognize that its there but nothing opens. It even pops up on my start menu under the most used programs. I haven't gotten any block messages like I would normally get when it was working though.

Is there something I'm missing? Will I have to go in and manually delete things from my registry?

This is definitely getting into a dark area for me because I don't have a clue other than if I delete the wrong file I could mess up everything else :thumbsup:

Aside from buying a new copy of norton (and I'd be afraid it would do the same thing) I don't know what to do.

Hi SifuCarl,

Okay let's try a slightly different approach:

1. Use Norton's uninstaller again to uninstall Norton completely;

2. Reboot and as the computer starts up, just before Windows starts to load, tap the F8 key a few times and then choose Safe Mode from the menu that will appear.

3. Go to Start>Run, type in cmd > Enter

Note: I assume that the c: drive is your hard drive were you keep all your software. If it's another drive replace c: with that drive.

When the Command Prompt window comes up, type: chkdsk c: /f and press ENTER << See the spaces between chkdsk and c: and between c: and /f?

4. Defragment your hard drive:
  • Open My Computer and right-click on the C: drive. Select Properties, then click on the Tools tab and select Defragment Now...
  • The Windows Disk Defragmenter program will open and all drives are listed in the top window pane. Since the program is going to be arranging files on your hard drive, it is important that no files are being accessed during the process, or the program won't be able to move them. Close all open programs.
  • The C: drive is where operating system files and programs are installed by default, so make sure that it is selected, then click Defragment. While the program is running, it is recommend that you not use your computer. The time it takes to run the defragmenting process is dependent on the size of your hard drive and amount of fragmentation.

    While the program is running you will see a graphical representation of the blocks of files on your hard drive being moved and the fragmented segments joined together. Usually the less gaps of free space between the contiguous segments the better, but as long as the fragmented files are put together into contiguous segments, it will help your computer's performance.
  • Once the process is complete, the graphic should display most of the contiguous files on the left and the majority of the free space on the right. Close the Disk Defragmenter window and resume using your computer.
5. Reboot to go back into Normal mode again.

6. Check if your computer runs well now.

7. If it does re-install Norton and see if all stays well now.

8. Can you check please if C:\PROGRA~1\SYMANT~1\SYMAN~1\SYMFWAGT.DLL is there? You will find it in C:\PROGRAm files\SYMANTec ....\SYMANtec..\

Finally, in case the problem persists and since this appears to be a Symantec 'thing', I suggest you contact them to ask for help; there is a link in the error report you received ("Click here to go to Symantec Technical Support Knowledge Base...")
Of course I would be interested in the solution as you can imagine.

For the moment please let me know if the problem is resolved.

YIPEE, HOORAY, BOOYA, WOOOOHOOO, WELL DONE 'OL CHAP :flowers:

I did what you said and after each reboot I checked for the symantec folders and files.

- Yes the file in question was there.
- After uninstalling the symantec using add/remove programs the folders were still there with a number of files in them.
- After using the removal tool, the folders were still there with fewer files but still some nonetheless. I went ahead and deleted the files all together.
- Ran the safe mode and chkdsk and defrag. All went well.
- Reinstalled the program and ouilla, fixed.

Thanks again :thumbsup:
SifuCarl

Hi SifuCarl, :flowers:

YIPEE, HOORAY, BOOYA, WOOOOHOOO, WELL DONE 'OL CHAP


That's good to hear so you're ready to go after......

1. Remove previous restore points and set a new one to purge any malware that may have been backed up:

Click Start>Help and Support>Undo changes to your computer with System Restore
Click Create A Restore Point then click Next. Give it a name it and then click Create

Click Start>Run and type Cleanmgr
Click the More Options Tab.
Click Clean Up in the System Restore section.

This will remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

2. In order to prevent future infections follow these recommendations:

a. Visit Windows Update on a regular basis to stay current with critical updates.

b. Install and run the following free programs:

* Ad-Aware SE
A tutorial on using Ad-Aware to remove spyware from your computer may be found here!

* Spybot-Search & Destroy
A tutorial on using Spybot to remove spyware from your computer may be found
here! Please also remember to enable Spybot's "Immunize" and "TeaTimer" features.

* SpywareBlaster
A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster to prevent spyware from ever installing on your computer may be found here!

* SpywareGuard
A tutorial on using SpywareGuard for realtime protection against spyware and hijackers may be found here!

* IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

Keep all these programs (including your anti-virus) up-to-date and run them regularly.
If you do not update regularly they will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

c. I recommend you to read Tony Klein's excellent article: So how did I get infected in the first place?

d. If you want to fight back the Malware Writers, please take a look here!

Glad I was able to help and if there are any other problems related to your computer please feel free to post them in the appropriate forum. Though we help people with spyware and viruses here at BleepingComputer Forums, we also help people with other computer problems! Do not forget to tell your friends about us!

Good luck! :thumbsup:
