Nar.vbs virus

  1. My computer has been running slow lately and so I ran an AVG virus scan. After doing so it came up with nar.vbs. I read that it was difficult to scrub so I come here to check that I'm all clear. =]

    Mmm... I can't seem to add attachments... should I just post it?

    hi rutiene

    All seems fine :) .... has your computer started working at normal speed again? Why are you on Internet Explorer 6 though? Upgrade to 7 or use Firefox .... much better :)

    I use FF. That's why the Ie homepage is just dell.

    And no, I still can't get it working at normal speed. ><! I've had the motherboard replaced so I'm not sure what it could be...

    Hi Guys

    Spyder is right no apparent Malware issues so lets do some cleanup and tweaking.

    First the below is harmless but lets get rid of them anyway.
    Run HJT Scan only and select and fix the below 2 items.
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C255C8A-E604-49b4-9D64-90988571CECB} - (no file)
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KernelFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k

    Then do the below.

    Left Drag mouse and Copy for Pasting all text in the box below. Make sure the slider bar goes to bottom from the @ to the end of the second exit.
    Then paste to the black screen of an open command prompt. All may not apply so ignore errors.

    When above is finished continue below.

    A deep Temp and Reg clean.

    Run CCleaner http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds (get SLIM at bottom no Yahoo toolbar)
    Run twice or more on Cleanup temps, then on left click Registry then Scan for issues also repeat till clean. (you should already have this from 8 Steps)

    Run ATF-Cleaner http://majorgeeks.com/ATF_Cleaner_d4949.html Temp and Registry, repeatedly until no more found.

    KCleaner ftp://ftp2.kcsoftwares.com/kcsoftwa/files/kcleaner.exe
    Fantastic cleaner. (When installing uncheck Relevant Knowledge do not install)
    When run Click Analyze and when it finds then click clean.
    The issues can and are likely found is in System Restore so do the below

    Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk- System Restore and create a new Restore point. Name it "Cleanup at TechSpot".

    Then Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk Cleanup
    Click OK to accept C:
    Select all Boxes
    Then click More Options
    Here click System Restore and OK to "Are you sure" and the OK to Run.

    As this runs it clears all but the most recent Restore Point but it does one other thing that can contain infested files and a huge amount of disk space.

    It clears what is known as Shadow copies which are used by specialized back up programs.

    This is if you have the Volume Shadow Copy running which is the default.

    After all the above reboot run for a while and report back if there is improvement!

    When I installed KCleaner, comodo started screaming at me about a virus rkverify.exe?

    KClean is clean! I have used this program for years. I have had many here on the Forum to use it also.

    Now when you installed you did not uncheck the Revelant Knowledge as I advised and that is what it is picking up.

    A very minor adware but have Comodo block it so KCleaner can install then go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall Revelant Knowledge. But keep KCleaner!

    I definitely unchecked RelevantKnowledge, I made a point to do so. I installed it twice because I thought it was something else and it came up both times. When I ran KCleaner, Comodo kept on screaming at me. :s
  8. mflynn

    mflynn TS Rookie Posts: 2,655


    OK KCleaner and Relevant Knowledge are 2 different Programs.

    The file Comodo is complaining about is rkverify.exe (the rk in rkverify has to do with Relevant Knowledge so let Comodo block it and remember the setting!

    Also look in the Add/Remove for for the Relevant Knowledge and uninstall it!

    rutiene TS Rookie Topic Starter

    Well.. here's the problem. KCleaner wasn't working when I kept blocking it, so I unblocked it... (this is before I posted). <----- feels like an ***** now. I'm actually running my antivirus to make sure that things are ok.

    I also looked in Add/Remove and there's no Relevant Knowledge.

    I understand that its hard to trust someone over the internet to follow simple instructions, with all the idiocy out there, but I really didn't keep the Relevant Knowledge checkbox checked. ><!

    mflynn TS Rookie Posts: 2,655

    OK no problem!

    So now uninstall even KCleaner in Add/Remove.


    Then try to install from scratch again and approve all including RK then RK will be in the Add/Remove to uninstall later. As I said it is a very minor adware.

    Rutiene, your computer is slow because you have too many programs and processes loading at startup and running in the background. While the entries are legitimate they can be started manually when you need them.

    The ONLY processes you need on Startup are:
    Antivirus program(AVG)
    Firewall is using 3rd party firewall
    Touchpad for the laptop (Synaptics)

    Nothing else!

    Give this a try- it will give you an idea:
    Start> Run> msconfig> enter> Selective Startup> Startup menu> UNCHECK everything except the processes mentioned above> Apply> OK.

    Reboot> NOTE: you will get a nag message that you can ignore and close after checking 'don't show this message again.' Stay in Selective Startup.

    (Some of the processes may reload because they are loading from memory and have to be stopped elsewhere, but this should give you some idea of what it can be like!)

    By the way, your helpers missed AdWatch. Real Time Protection needs to be temporarily disabled before the scans:

    Well... my computer does seem to be running faster now. But now I'm using the ugly Windows2000 Theme and not my XP Silver. D: I can't seem to turn it on either.

    The object here is to get rid of the malware!

    And at the end, Mike should have had you remove the cleaning tools and old restore points. But that is only done when the cleaning is complete. We don't know that.

    In Services confirm Themes service is set to Automatic and is started.

    Then in Control Panel Click System-Advanced-Performance Settings.

    Put Dot in Adjust for best performance then in box below select only these 3 items.

    Smooth edges of screen fonts
    Use common tasks in folders
    Use visual styles on windows and buttons.
    Click Apply then OK OK

    Now Rt click a blank spot on Desktop then left click properties, then Appearance and chose Windows XP style in the pulldown of Windows and bottons. Click Apply OK.

    Let me know all remaining issues so we may continue of finish.
