  1. Hello,

    I wanted to ask a preliminary question. Having used this site before I trust the guidance and I am ready to follow the 8 step preliminary malware removal. However on searching for information on this current malware I found a site called d-a-l to which Broni also posts. The page ( instructs that I should not do anything other than what is described in that thread or else I may suffer computer problems in the long run. The malware opens a 'windows scan' and tells me I have various RAM and HDD problems. My question is should I follow the 8 step program?

    Thank you in advance

    It's going to depend on what's causing the RAM (memory) problem and what the problem is with the Hard Drive. (HDD) I don't have enough information to go any further. Are you getting blue screens with writing on them? What are you doing what the message come up? What is the source of the messages?

    If you would like us to check the system for malware, please follow the steps in the Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal thread HERE.

    When you have finished, leave the logs for review in your next reply .
    NOTE: Logs must be pasted in the replies. Attached logs will not be reviewed.

    Please do not use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you, unless I direct you to. Do not use a Registry cleaner or make any changes in the Registry.

    Running the preliminary scan we have set up should not harm your system. Following directions given to someone else can harm the system. So I'll review the logs and see what's going on. If it appears to be only a system problem, I will have the thread moved to a more appropriate forum.

    Hi thankyou for the reply

    The problem is with a program that pops up called windows scan which tells me i have various hardware problems and asks me to purchase software to sort them out. i had already run malwarebytes so when i followed you preliminary 8steps it came up with no malicious items. i have therefore included the first scan i ran along with the other logs you requested.

    Did you not see the entries found in Malwarebytes? I wouldn't call this no malicious items. The system was infected with Rogue.FakeHDD although Mbam quarantined the entries, there may possibly be other entries in the Registry. It is also seen as "Easy Scan." alias "HDD Low" .Your main problem is that it is now in memory and unless we can find and remove from there, it will run again.
    There will still be entries to remove: Please run the following:

    Run Eset NOD32 Online AntiVirus scan HERE
    1. Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
    2. Click Start
    3. When asked, allow the Active X control to install
    4. Disable your current Antivirus software. You can usually do this with its Notification Tray icon near the clock.
    5. Click Start
    6. Make sure that the option "Remove found threats" is Unchecked, and the option "Scan unwanted applications" is checked
    7. Click Scan
    8. Wait for the scan to finish
    9. Re-enable your Antivirus software.
    10. A logfile is created and located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt. Please include this on your post.
    Download Combofix to your desktop from one of these locations:
    Link 1
    Link 2
    • Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. It is strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode if needed.
    • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
    • Query- Recovery Console image
    • Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:
    • .Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware
    • .If Combofix asks you to update the program, allow
    • .Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
    • .Close any open browsers.
    • .Double click combofix.exe[​IMG] & follow the prompts to run.
    • When the scan completes it will open a text window. Please paste that log in your next reply.
    1. Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
    2. ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making I-E the default browser.
    3. Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CD, floppy and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you -- please tell your helper.
    4. CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

    Questions about backup programs:

    1. You have 3 Registry entries that end as follows: They are all related to My Hub, which is a secure an Oracle Peoplesoft signin, the site having confidential info for UPMC.
    explorer\shell iconoverlayidentifiers\0SpareBackup_Backedup]
    explorer\shell iconoverlayidentifiers\0SpareBackup_Failed]
    explorer\shell iconoverlayidentifiers\0SpareBackup_NotBackedup]

    2. In addition, you also show Carbonite Online Backup Setup which loads the CarbonitePreinstaller.exe> 8/2009

    3. Dell DataSafe Online, a preloaded process, is also loading
    Are you aware of all these backup programs running? Are you using all of them?
    1. The following preloaded processes from Dell are also running:
    Dell DataSafe Online
    Dell Dock
    Dell Edoc Viewer
    Dell Getting Started Guide
    Dell Support Center (Support Software)
    Dell Touchpad
    Dell Video Chat
    Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility

    Have you ever reviewed the Dell preloads and determined of you use/need them all?
    2. SupportSoft Assisted Service is also running indicating that at sometime you had an agent use remote control access to solve computer glitches on your computer. If that is no longer being used, it should be stopped. Any remote service adds a vulnerability to the system.
    3. There is a deletion in the Combofix log that indicates you may have used a flash drive that was infected. If that is so, then we will need to disinfect the flash drive also.
    4. ESETSmartInstaller@High as CAB hook log:
    OnlineScanner.ocx - registered OK>> was there no log? Are you sure it scanned?
    5. Java(TM) 6 Update 11 is outdated. Current version is v6u23:
    Check this site. Java Updates Stay current as most updates are for security. Uninstall any earlier versions in Add/Remove Programs as they are vulnerabilities for the system.

    eset rerun

    i assumed that the log being empty was a good thing but i have rerun it and the log is as follows:

    ESETSmartInstaller@High as CAB hook log:
    OnlineScanner.ocx - registred OK
    esets_scanner_update returned -1 esets_gle=53251

    This is my dad's laptop and it does run incredibly slowely for what is a fairly new machine. I am happy to stop as much as possible but the names of these things are unfamiliar to me so I do not know if they are necessary. I certainly don't need anything for online storage or remote help. Do I stop these programs through msconfig and uninstalling? Can I get rid of all those things you listed I still want to use the laptop touch pad and wifi?

    To disinfect the falsh drives do I just run the same process you have put me through for the laptop?

    Thank you as always
  8. Bobbye

    Bobbye Helper on the Fringe Posts: 16,335   +36

    Okay, there may not be any entries found by Eset. Most of what I asked was based on what I saw in the log. Please tell me if you are now the owner or primary user of this machine. Or, if you dad is, I will have you ask some specific questions before I have you remove anything.

    There was an 'unusual' mixture of entries in the logs- those I always ask about before taking the responsibility of sending them ff into cyberspace! Because of the nature of some entries, My Hub in particular, I need to know if this is actively being used and by whom.

    I found two very different sites for My Hub with link to
    My Hub - Social Address Book
    By Bitsmedia Pte Ltd

    My dad is the primary user he uses the laptop simply for online tv, outlook email and photo editing. He has asked me to get it free of viruses and speed it up if possible.

    Btw how come you run this site for free do you all have day jobs?

    Please run this Custom CFScript:

    • [1]. Close any open browsers.
      [2]. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      [3]. Open notepad> click on Format> Uncheck 'Word Wrap'> and copy/paste the text in the code below into it:Be sure to scroll down to include ALL lines.
    mRun: [Spare Backup] "c:\program files\my hub\SpareTray.exe" /silent
    mRun: [CarboniteSetupLite] "c:\program files\carbonite\CarbonitePreinstaller.exe" /preinstalled /showonfirst /reshowat=900

    Save this as CFScript.txt, in the same location as ComboFix.exe

    Referring to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

    When finished, it will produce a log for you at C:\ComboFix.txt . Please paste in your next reply.
    The following programs should be uninstalled in Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.
    Carbonite Online Backup Setup
    My Hub
    SupportSoft Assisted Service

    Then use Windows Explorer> My Computer> Local Drive> Programs> right click> delete the program folders.
    I did not remove the DellDataSafe backup or any of the Dell processes. Suggest you review them and uninstall what he/you doesn't use/need.

    Has the original problem been resolved?

    Much Appreciated

    Hi, Yes all is well in the world of my laptop thank you so much it is nice to be able to use it without all the pop ups.
  13. Bobbye

    Bobbye Helper on the Fringe Posts: 16,335   +36

    You're welcome! I'd like you to run HijackThis just to make sure there are no bad entries left. After I check the log, if nothing else shows up, I'll have you remove the cleaning tools.

    Download HijackThis and save to your desktop.
    • Extract it to a directory on your hard drive called c:\HijackThis.
    • Then navigate to that directory and double-click on the hijackthis.exe file.
    • When started click on the Scan button and then the Save Log button to create a log of your information.
    • The log file and then the log will open in notepad. Be sure to click on Format> Uncheck Word Wrap when you open 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 (Ctrl+V) the log in your next reply.

    NOTE: Do NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet! Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
  14. Bobbye

    Bobbye Helper on the Fringe Posts: 16,335   +36

    IF you're comfortable with what' we done and don't want to run HijaakThis, please run the following to remove the cleaning tools:
    Removing all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created
    • Uninstall ComboFix and all Backups of the files it deleted
    • Click START> then RUN
    • Now type Combofix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.
    • Download OTCleanIt by OldTimer and save it to your Desktop.
    • Double click OTCleanIt.exe.
    • Click the CleanUp! button.
    • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
    • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

    Note: If you receive a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTC attempting to contact the internet, please allow it to do so.
    • You should now set a new Restore Point and remove the old restore points to prevent infection from any previous Restore Points.
    • Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools
    • Click "System Restore".
    • Choose "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next".
    • Give the Restore Point a name> click "Create".
    • Go back and follow the path to > System Tools.
      [*]Choose Disc Cleanup
      [*]Click "OK" to select the partition or drive you want.
      [*]Click the "More Options" Tab.
      [*]Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous Restore Points except the newly created one.
