  1. Hi, Can anyone tell me what a Trojan horse Constructor.DTO is? And also what a Rogue.Crusader is as well. How I found these, well the first, my AVG found and the following one, my Malwarebytes found. Any clues on what these do or what they are? I even scanned with this: http://www.virustotal.com/, they didn't pickup anything amazingly with their 10+ AV and other Scanners! Should I ignore these Malware types?

    Those are Spyware. Most Trojans don't do any damage by themselves, they open portals to let the real nasty stuff come in and take hold

    Have you seen the 8-step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions

    We like to begin there, and have you attach the 3 logs required. Take your time and follow the instructions carefully. If you flag this malware, you are probably already infected. Its only a matter of time, before things start going down hill

    8 step preliminary removal instructions for malware and such done

    So, does this in any way relate to how my user account password was changed? Well when I first tried to login someone somehow changed my password so I couldn't login, but luckily I had a passwords resetter on my USB so I can reset my password! Haha! I'm always one step ahead of ya! So now I can login, strange no? hmmmmm..... I think someone's onto me.......

    Anyways, I've done the 8 steps, and here are my results as follows:

    AVG Full system scan: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4001/4267438367_1a802c5d42_o.jpg - all I got was tracking cookies.

    CIS My Computer Scan: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2741/4268183740_3b10c7f97b_o.jpg - nothing.

    CIS Critical Area Scan: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2733/4267438483_2318d676d6_o.jpg - nothing again.

    My logs are in the attachments, make sure you read them.

    hmmm, how come Malwarebytes didn't manage to pick up those infected files with Rogue.Crusader?

    Please understand that the people who help you here are all volunteers. Most of us try to provide you with information you need to resolve your problem. That information will include directions about running a program if one is suggested.

    You're changing your focus so let's try to get back on track. If you are willing to do that, I will help you. I'm hoping you'll get rid of the edge you seem to have.
    The malware on the first Mbam log was found. Here's the description of it:: http://remove-malware.net/how-to-remove-crusader-antivirus-rogue-anti-spyware/

    When you ran Malwarebytes the first time, you did not do this:
    Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

    So all of the entries for the malware show No Action Taken or more simply put, the malware was found and was still on your system.
    I don't know where you downloaded Malwarebytes or why you decided to run only it, instead of following the steps we ask you to. Had you done that- even if you chose only to run Malwarebytes, you would have seen this line in the instructions: More simply put, you did not read the directions- so forget coming down on Malwarebytes!

    As for this:
    Get rid of that attitude, okay? You want help? Follow what we ask you to do, taking care tor read the directions carefully.

    I'm ignoring all those other links you threw in.

    Please print out the directions I give you so you can follow them as you go along.

    You're behind in updates: This leaves your system more vulnerable: Platform: Windows Vista SP1.So somewhere along the line you should do this:
    Visit the Microsoft Download Sitefrequently.
    You should get All updates marked Critical and the current SP updates:Windows 2000> SP4, Windows XP> SP2, SP3, Vista> SP2

    It also looks like the AVG is outdated. You should be running v9.

    Please reopen the HijackThis log to 'do system scan only'.. Check each of the following if present:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Window Title = currently used by Eih_TCSN (I cannot identify this entry- can you?)
    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - *{CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497} - (no file)> IOBit
    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - *{707db484-2428-402d-afb5-d85b387544c7} - (no file)> Mario
    O1 - Hosts: ::1 localhost
    O2 - BHO: Mario Forever Toolbar - {707db484-2428-402d-afb5-d85b387544c7} - (no file)

    Are you aware or did you set a restriction in the Control Panel? IF you did or are aware of it, leave it. If you did not, check for removal:
    O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

    Close all Windows except HijackThis and click on "Fix Checked."

    Please download ComboFix HERE:

      • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

    Alright, I take that back. The link: http://remove-malware.net/how-to-remove-crusader-antivirus-rogue-anti-spyware/ you gave, my "WOT" detected it and said it has a poor reputation. It also enter site at own risk, read what this link tries to say about that site: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/remove-malware.net I don't know enough of that site you wanted me to go on, so I'm going to just ignore that link for now.

    Where I downloaded Malwarebytes; from the 8 steps Preliminary instructions to remove them Malwares at techspot.com. That's where I got mine. Why I decided to run only that, just wanted to test how well it would perform.

    sorry.....I just wanted some attention around here....

    Those links are images the outcome of the scans.

    Okay, for the windows updates, I can't update them automatically. Everytime I update windows automatically and it restarts eh? restarts then says something was wrong, then reverts to previuos stage, I've done this like 5 times, I am not willing to do that the 6th, those updates costed me about 1 - 2hrs just to keep an eye on that! It just doesn't work, if I knew how to update it manually I would do so, but seeing how I don't, I just ignored the updates....

    I am running v9! AVG Anti-virus Free 9! it even says so in windows!

    Yeah, uh, I modified the window title so it would show you who it is that's currently using IE. I used Spyware Blaster to change that.

    Do these relate to the IE toolbars I disabled earlier which I hardly use? If yes then yes.

    I will follow the rest.

    I'm familiar with rebranding Internet Explorer where the name of an ISP is removed or changed, but this is a new one to me!

    If you no longer use the Toolbars, uninstall them. That goes for programs, utilities, et al that you no longer use. IF you can't find them in Add/Remove Programs, you can use the Windows Installer Cleanup[ Utility: http://majorgeeks.com/Windows_Installer_CleanUp_Utility_d4459.html

    • Uh, do I need to do all that? since I've explained abit more details. Because I I haven't started yet :D

      Oh and the reason why I didn't remove the files that were infected with the 'Rogue.Crusader' thing is because if I do that, then I would be missing part of the files needed to run the game. And also I didn't think it was that much of a threat.

    Please go elsewhere to get help. I don't have time to answer you second guesses for every reply I make.

    You got irritated because a file wasn't deleted. I told you why. Now you refuse to delete it. So enjoy your game and rogue.

    I thought you guys here were nice talkative people :(

    Either that or your just one of those people who are serious about things and don't like to talk to much.

    I haven't refused to delete those files yet.

    Some people don't "get it" but I do... If you visit my thread I promise I will follow all instructions without attitude. I could use the help and understand you are all volunteers with better things to do. :)

    GN48, my volunteer job here is to help people like you clean up the malware on their computer systems. this forum is very busy- there are more infected systems than there are people to help clean them.

    This is not a social chat forum. It takes time, patience and a lot of searching to clean up malware. I am a nice person. In the right venue, I 'talk.' I am serious about what I do here and that doesn't leave room to socialize.

    Yes, you did. It's not negotiable.

    Why don't you ask Tmagic to come play with you!? I've done all the work already.

    My bad Bobbeye, I'll try to get serious next time okay? I'm a nice person too. But sometimes I get carried away and start posting replies that you know adds abit more things to the thread if you know what I'm talking about :D

    Oh and about this thread, I wanted to add another question to this: https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic141415.html
    Seeing how you said:
    Oh and Bobbeye, if your willing to help me out here, I'll take all help you are willing to give me, alright, and I won't, I'll try not to get carried away this time. Give me a thumbs up and I'll start the rest of what you left me to do that I didn't do because I got carried away. :)

    If not, then I'll just forget about this.
