Hi Conk92,

Welcome to TSG!

When you install anything I suggest you always select custom install and there you will see the bundled stuff that you can uncheck.

I'll be happy to help you remove the LOP.

Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
  • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Download OTS.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTS on your desktop.
  1. Close any open browsers.
  2. If your Real protection or Antivirus intervenes with OTS, allow it to run.
  3. Open the OTS folder and double-click on OTS.exe to start the program.
  4. In Additional Scans section put a check in Disabled MS Config Items and EventViewer logs
  5. Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  6. The program will be scanning huge amounts of data so depending on your system it could take a long time to complete. Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  7. When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  8. Save that notepad file
Use the Reply button, scroll down to the attachments section and attach the notepad file here.

NOTE: The only people who can see attachments in the HJT forum are: the thread starter, Admins & Mods, and HJT Helpers & Trainees.

Remove old Java:
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.

Start OTS. Copy/Paste the information in the Code box below into the pane where it says Paste fix here and then click the Run Fix button.

Code:
[Kill Explorer]
[Unregister Dlls]
[Registry - Safe List]
< Internet Explorer ToolBars [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\] > -> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\
YN -> WebBrowser\\"{32099AAC-C132-4136-9E9A-4E364A424E17}" [HKLM] -> Reg Error: Key error. [Reg Error: Key error.]
[Files/Folders - Created Within 30 Days]
NY -> A19CEDDD918B6441.job -> C:\windows\tasks\A19CEDDD918B6441.job
NY -> meow creative 01 -> C:\Program Files\meow creative 01
[Files/Folders - Modified Within 30 Days]
NY -> 5 C:\windows\System32\*.tmp files -> C:\windows\System32\*.tmp
NY -> 1 C:\windows\*.tmp files -> C:\windows\*.tmp
NY -> 428 C:\Documents and Settings\jack mclean\Local Settings\Temp\*.tmp files -> C:\Documents and Settings\jack mclean\Local Settings\Temp\*.tmp
NY -> 28 C:\windows\Temp\*.tmp files -> C:\windows\Temp\*.tmp
[Empty Temp Folders]
[Start Explorer]
[Reboot]
The fix should only take a very short time. When the fix is completed a message box will popup telling you that it is finished. Click the Ok button and Notepad will open with a log of actions taken during the fix.
Post that information back here.

I will review the information when it comes back in.

Run HJT again and put a check in the following:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [comp view eggs idol] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\loud bike comp view\Third Live.exe

Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

Please download the OTM by OldTimer.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Please double-click OTM.exe to run it.
  • Copy all the lines in the quote box below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    :Files
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\loud bike comp view
  • Return to OTM, right click in the "Paste Instructions for Items to be Moved" window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • Copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • Close OTM
Note: If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes. In this case, after the reboot, open Notepad (Start->All Programs->Accessories->Notepad), click File->Open, in the File Name box enter *.log and press the Enter key, navigate to the C:\_OTM\MovedFiles folder, and open the newest .log file present, and copy/paste the contents of that document back here in your next post with a new hijackthis log.

Also keep me up to date on the other problems.... ;)

Run HJT again and put a check in the following:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [roadview] C:\DOCUME~1\JACKMC~1\APPLIC~1\MEOWCR~1\play free.exe

Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

Please download the OTM by OldTimer.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Please double-click OTM.exe to run it.
  • Copy all the lines in the quote box below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    :Files
    C:\DOCUME~1\JACKMC~1\APPLIC~1\MEOWCR~1
  • Return to OTM, right click in the "Paste Instructions for Items to be Moved" window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • Copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • Close OTM
Note: If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes. In this case, after the reboot, open Notepad (Start->All Programs->Accessories->Notepad), click File->Open, in the File Name box enter *.log and press the Enter key, navigate to the C:\_OTM\MovedFiles folder, and open the newest .log file present, and copy/paste the contents of that document back here in your next post.

You should have left the current java. You can install it from here: http://majorgeeks.com/Sun_Java_Runtime_Environment_d4648.html
Pick a download site, save it to your desktop and run the installation.

As for the graphics, I would suggest downloading the latest drivers from the manufacturer website.

Conk92, trying to figure out the "RM" "invalid boot" mesage -- is this an "RM" Asus Netbook? What is the model of the computer?

And when exactly does the message come up, is on a black screen before any other data appears to be loading?

Do you ever see a "boot menu" in this process?

If you run msconfig and select the "Boot.ini" tab, then click the tab to "check all boot paths", does it verify what's there, or does one fault? What is set as the default? What is described as "invalid" if anything?

Hi Conk92,
I've requested Rollin' Rog to help me with the "RM" "invalid boot" mesage as I'm not sure I know the correct questions to ask to get to the bottom of that problem.

If you don't want to purchase AVG you can get the free download or select another product.

Look in the TSG Library of Knowledge for suggestions. Some are purchased and some are free.

There are a couple of ways we can go about this. If you have access to the "recovery console" you can use the "bootcfg" command to create a new boot.ini file basically following the directions here >>

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291980

Debi, doesn't Combofix install the Recovery Console? There are other ways if no XP disk is available, such as Elvandil's ISO file he made available here in the last post >> http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/561576-mom-exe.html#post4622868

This ISO file has to be burned using a burner that suports the ISO extension. You can't just burn it normally. Most installed burners will recognize the extension automatically if you just open the file.

Once in the Recovery Console command window -- I believe the correct command here would be bootcfg /rebuild

The second option is if you have an identical Netbook -- you can copy the "boot.ini" file from one to the other.

This file has both hidden and system attributes -- so to find it you will have to open Folder Options > View and UNcheck (temporarily) the option to hide system files.

Then you should be able to locate the c:\boot.ini file on one computer and copy it to the other.

Once copied you should right click on it, select "properties" and make sure the "hidden" attribute is checked.
