  1. I accidently clicked on a message that had something to do with a facebook picture on an instant message. Now i have a virus that sends this link to everyone on my buddy list, therefore infecting their computer. How do I get rid of this virus and make sure that its still not on my computer? Thanks for your help in advance.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    The AVG Antirootkit scan came up with nothing. Here are the three logs that you requested.

    All items in your AVG Antispyware log say "No Action Taken". That`s because you haven`t told AVG Antispyware to quarantine it`s results as per the instructions. See this pictorial guide.

    1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 from HERE. Save it to your Desktop and extract it.

    2. Download the attached avengerscript.txt and save it to your desktop

    Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

    3. Now, start The Avenger program by double clicking on its icon on your desktop.

    Under "Script file to execute" choose "Load script from file".
    Now click on the folder icon which will open a new window titled "open Script File"
    navigate to the file you have just downloaded, click on it and press open
    Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
    Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

    It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
    On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
    After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
    The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.

    5. Please attach the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply, as well as a fresh HJT, Combofix and AVG Antispyware logs.

    Regards Howard :)

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    Viewpoint
    Viewpoint Manager

    Close control panel.

    Click start/run and type services.msc into the run box and press the enter key.

    When the window appears, maximise it. Double click on the following services(if there) and select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.

    kg
    iqfvey
    iictmilptjs
    Local Security Authority Server (LSaServ)<Disable the service name and/or the name in brackets.
    Print Spooler Service (wrhabozrci5gaf0o)<Disable the service name and/or the name in brackets.

    Close the services window.


    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    ViewMgr.exe
    cmd64.exe
    otsdqarnjkn.exe

    lpsfmtrn.exe
    aqmbl.exe
    iictmilptjs.exe

    iqfvey.exe
    lsasrv.exe
    iictmilptjs.exe

    kg.exe

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = local.,

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [cmd64] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\cmd64.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [kg] C:\WINDOWS\system32\kg.exe

    O23 - Service: Local Security Authority Server (LSaServ) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\Cursors\lsasrv.exe (file missing)

    O23 - Service: Print Spooler Service (wrhabozrci5gaf0o) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\iqfvey.exe (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\Program Files\Viewpoint<Delete the entire folder.
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\cmd64.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\otsdqarnjkn.exe

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\kg.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\lpsfmtrn.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\aqmbl.exe

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\iictmilptjs.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\iqfvey.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\Cursors\lsasrv.exe

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Those logfiles look fine. Post what will hopefully be a final, fresh HJT log.

    Hey thanks alot. I really appreciate all of your help. Hopefully this will be my last post on this website. Heres the latest HJT log. Thanks again.

    I`m pleased to say, your HJT log is clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    I seriously hope you stick around Techspot. Maybe you can offer a little advice here and there to folks that need it.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
