Hello,

I have an hp pavilion laptop and I have approx 27 trojans on my computer. I have avg and it scans everyday. I also have malware that I run a scan every few weeks. I have been told to reformat but have no idea how too. I tried to call hp and they told me it would cost me. I dont have the money to purchase anything or pay to get help does anyone have any advice that may help me? Tried to do a system restore but it would only allow me to go back to 10 pm last night. These obviously were on here before than. I am very frustrated and just want this fixed. I need this for school and cant afford to buy another one. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

why not just get it fixed here? if you wish, I can move this thread to the hijackthis area and our security experts will more than likely be able to get you fixed up. In doing this for a few years now I've only come across 2 viruses that require a reformat; everything else is fixable.

Let me know if you want it moved, or if you just want to nuke it and pave over.

thanks,

v

I agree with Valis. Unless you're determined to do a format and fresh install, the malware experts at the "Malware Removal & HijackThis Logs" section may be able to resolve the infection problem.

it's simple. You begin by posting a hjt log so that they can see the type of infection(s) that you have, and then the expert will parse the log, frequently having you download some applications to help remove the specific infection that you have.

Again, this is what we are here for. The malware forum is easily the busiest forum on this site; the experts are all trained and are the only ones who are allowed to assist in malware removal. This way, you can avoid the reformat option and have your rig back to normal.

Matter of fact, that's how I got twigged to this site, and to malware removal in general.

No, you don't have to turn anything off. A security expert will be by shortly; 2 things.

1. You will be asked to download, install, and run hijack this. I generally have a canned speech for this, but I'm on my back-back up pc (got like 8 different versions of windows 7 giong, and don't have my cans moved over to this pc yet); please follow their instructions to the letter, and don't do anything that they don't ask you to.

2. They ( the experts) are all extraordinarily busy; should you not hear from someone within 48 hours, please feel free to PM me and I'll track someone down for you.

I think you will be pleasantly surprised to find out that we can, in fact, return your machine to pre-viral state with no loss of data.

And when you are, donations and referrals are always welcome. :)

as are members who are more than happy to spend some of their time fixing other peoples problems that they know the answer to. :)

thanks again for your patience,

v

Hi,

I'd be happy to help you get this cleaned up. :)

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe.
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
  • Click Save to save the log file and then the log will 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 Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Note: During this process, it would help a great deal and be very much appreciated if you would refrain from installing any new software or hardware on this machine, unless absolutely necessary, until the clean up process is finished as it makes our job more tedious, with additional new files that may have to be researched, which is very time consuming.

Also, please do not run any security programs or fixes on your own as doing so may compromise what we will be doing. It is important that you wait for instructions.

After you've backed up your photos and documents to some external media such as CDs or an external hard drive, please do the following:

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here.

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart. (See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the entire report in your next reply.
Extra Note:

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.

Sometimes malware prevents it from running. In that case, please open the Malwarebytes folder in Program Files and right-click the mbam.exe file and select "rename" then rename it to puppy.exe. Then double-click the puppy.exe file to run it.

I am not getting the error messages every 5 min like I was. I did already have the malware stuff on my computer and ran it the other day and nothing came up. Not sure why the difference now.

I can't help but notice your forum username starts with abber and you have a folder by that name that had malware in it. Is this a folder you created? Also, is abber your username on your computer?

C:\Users\abber

Actually abber is my user name on my computer. I didnt know I had a folder. Maybe its because my username? My name is Amber but my sister couldnt say it when we were little and it just kind of stuck. Lots of people call me that now. Thats why I used it. Are the viruses now gone? do I need to do anything else? Is there a way to scan my flash drive to get the virus off of it? A special thing maybe? I was fortunate to not lose anything in doing all this but still have other things on my flash drive I need to put on my computer. I just dont want to have this same issue again. I am trying to put the avg back on my computer but its having issues installing.

The abber forlder in users is normal on a Vista machine. This is a new variant of a rootkit that creates an .exe file with the same name as the user, in your case, abber.exe. MalwareBytes took care of it but we have more to do.

It seems the infection came from the flash drive. This is not the same flash drive you backed up your photos and stuff to, right? If you have those backed up to other media, then please proceed as follows :

Insert the USB flash drive and leave it connected throughout all of these instructions. You can remove it when you've completed them.

Download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.

Please visit Combofix Guide & Instructions for instructions for installing the recovery console and downloading and running ComboFix.

The only thing different from the instructions there is that when downloading and saving the ComboFix.exe I would like you to rename it to Combo-Fix.exe please.

Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that along with a new HijackThis log.

Important notes regarding ComboFix:

ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making it the default browser. This can easily be changed once we're finished.

ComboFix also prevents autorun of ALL CDs, floppies and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you, please let me know. This can be undone manually when we're finished. Read HERE for an article written by dvk01 on why we disable autoruns.
