Hi Guys,
I had a nasty virus on my desktop recently. Unfortunately my son OKed a registry change and the whole thing crashed. A computer friend is taking the hard drive to his office to try to clean it on another computer. Tonight my daughter's laptop was acting weird. The MaAfee security said it hadn't scanned in a month but when I tried to do a full scan it froze at 13% and then I had to turn it off manually. I tried a full scan again and the same thing happened. Turned it off manually and when I turned it on windows did a big chckdisk thing. I also have some kind of icon that shows blocked startup programs called system configuation utility. I'm thinking it's a virus. Should I run a virus cleanup program? If so, what? Thanks, Judy

Please download ComboFix from BleepingComputer.com

Alternate link: GeeksToGo.com

Alternate link: Forospyware.com

Rename ComboFix.exe to commy.exe before you save it to your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools A guide to do this can be found here
  • Click Start>Run then copy paste the following command into the Run box & click OK "%userprofile%\desktop\commy.exe" /stepdel
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's 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 that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • 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


Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


  • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the contents of C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

DragonMaster Jay,
Tried to run Mbam. Kept freezing and I had to turn off the computer manually after it sat there for over 15 minutes each time it got to a certain point. Ran it in safe mode 3 times. It detedcted 3 infected files but would freeze up again and I would have to manually shut down the computer.
The last two times in safe mode I noted that it stopped at this file
c:\backup\09-09-25 0553PM\Windows\Installer\$PatchCache$\Manger\00002119F20000000000000000F01Fec\12.0.6215\MSO.DLL
Again, I would have to manually shut down the computer even in safe mode.
I did have to do a factory restore and it may have been around Sept. 9, 09 if that helps at all.

Thanks for all your time.
Judy

I am scanning with Kaspersky in safe mode right now. It seems to have frozen during the autoscan about the same place c:\backup\09-09-250554p...\system.speech.dll. This is the same spot McAfee would freeze and that got my attention to contact geekpolice.

I will let it go a while longer (it's been frozen for about 10 minutes). Then I will probably shut down the computer and try to run Kaspersky again.
Questions: I still want my McAfee virusscan, et.al turned off for this right? When I set up the Kaspersky autoscan I did not check Partion_1 (c:), Recovery (d:), but I did check CD Drive (e:) as well as the other items you listed to be checked. Is that correct?
Thanks, Judy

Ok.

Go to the link below and download Microsoft Malicious Tool remover.

http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx

After you have installed and run it that, come back and tell me if there has been a change.

descriptionRe: advice on possible virus

OK, I will. BTW, I did get Kaspersky to run again for awhile. It said it found 7 items and at least one was a trojan...Torjan-dropper.Win32.Agent.azhd. It could not neutralize so I had it delete and then the system froze again. Kaspersky never could finish the scan and the computer did a crach dump that said STOP:0x00008086.

Well, let's see what Microsoft's tool says. Smile...

Running Microsoft Mal Removal on the laptop and it is frozen at the same file
MaAfee froze at C:\Backup\09-09-25 0554PM\Program Foles\Reference Assemblies\...\System.Speech.dll
Still have it running but it hasn't done anything for about 15 min.

Hey DragonMaster Jay,
FYI, there is an icon on my toolbar that says "blocked startup programs". When I click on it it has a user account control window come up (this is w/ Vista) and asks if I started this action click continue. It lists System Configuration Utility by Microsoft Windows. I'm suspicious that this is part of the virus-scam so I have not clicked continue to open it but have x-ed out of it. Could this be causing all the malware programs to freeze before completing?

descriptionRe: advice on possible virus

Not sure.

Please download RootRepeal from GooglePages.com .

  • Extract the program file to your Desktop.
  • Run the program RootRepeal.exe and go to the Report tab and click on the Scan button.


  • Select ALL of the checkboxes and then click OK and it will start scanning your system.

  • If you have multiple drives you only need to check the C: drive or the one Windows is installed on.
  • When done, click on Save Report
  • Save it to the Desktop.
