By cgarmon
Feb 18, 2010
  1. I tried to look at a video on facebook would not load then got the screen that I got a virus and it wanted to remove it with an ativirus program. I closed mozilla and started the steps, but I could not update my virus (charter security suite) or malwarebytes' anti malware.

    This is the malware the charter virus scan found but could not clean and I have added the logs from the other programs.

    Adware.OneStep.D (Adware)
    Gen:Adware.Heur.aq0@ROCxnWdi (Adware)
    Application.Generic.92203 (Riskware)

    Malwarebytes log says "No action taken" after each line. You either didn't apply fixes, or you posted the log from before fixes.
    In the future always remember to apply fixes.

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    Download TDSSKiller and save it to your Desktop.
    Extract its contents to your desktop and make sure TDSSKiller.exe (the contents of the zipped file) is on the Desktop itself, not within a folder on the desktop.
    Go to Start > Run (Or you can hold down your Windows key and press R) and copy and paste the following into the text field. (make sure you include the quote marks) Then press OK.

    "%userprofile%\Desktop\TDSSKiller.exe" -l C:\TDSSKiller.txt -v

    If it says "Hidden service detected" DO NOT type anything in. Just press Enter on your keyboard to not do anything to the file.
    When it is done, a log file should be created on your C: drive called TDSSKiller.txt please copy and paste the contents of that file here.

    Good :)

    Please download OTC to your desktop. It'll remove most tools and logs we used so far. If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.

    • Double-click OTC.exe to run it. (Vista and 7 users, please right click on OTC and select "Run as an Administrator")
    • Click on the CleanUp! button and follow the prompts.
    • You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process, choose Yes. If it doesn't ask you to reboot, restart computer manually.
    • After the reboot all the tools we used should be gone.
    • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

    ==========================================================================

    Verify your Java version here: http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
    Update, if necessary.
    Uninstall all previous Java versions, through Add\Remove (Programs & Features in Vista).
