Hi, i am trying to clean a laptop that was given to me by a friend. Since it wasn't mine originally i do not have that much experience with the symptoms but according to my friend they are as follows:

"To start off with it was just taking an age to load, then once loaded it wouldn't let me log on to internet, applications then just freeze a few minutes after and not let me do anything. Before all this though if I ran any applications and stayed in them for half an hour say it would just switch itself off, even with full battery and plugged in."

I've also noticed that his Mcafee doesnt seem to do much when i try to open it, and windows security centre apparently won't activate. Also his CPU and RAM specs are missing in System and Maintenance.

I don't have the windows install disc - but can check with my friend if it turns out i need it.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Smiler81,

Let's start off with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to the following:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Save it to your desktop.
Note: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware may require a reboot to complete removals. After a reboot, if required, post that saved log in your next reply.

Also run a new scan with dds.scr and post a fresh dds.txt, and an update on system behaviour. What symptoms remain?

I followed your instructions. One problem though - since the laptop is unable to connect to the internet i was unable to update the anti-malware programme, so i just ran the unupdated version.

After running it the laptop still seems like it has problems. The symptoms i mentioned in my original post still seem to remain. I have not however attempted to connect to the internet since i was fearful of the risk of infecting other computers on our home network. I don't know how much of a risk this actually poses?

It should be able to connect to the internet after MBAM took out Media Access. Do try - it will not pose a threat to the other machines on the network.

Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2


--------------------------------------------------------------------

With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have the Windows Recovery Console pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.


Go to Microsoft's website => http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994

Scroll down to Step 1, and select the download that's appropriate for your Operating System. Download the file & save it as it's originally named.

Note: If you have SP3, use the SP2 package.


---------------------------------------------------------------------

Transfer all files you just downloaded, to the desktop of the infected computer.

--------------------------------------------------------------------


Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools




  • Drag the setup package onto ComboFix.exe and drop it.
  • Follow the prompts to start ComboFix and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Recovery Console.



  • At the next prompt, click 'Yes' to run the full ComboFix scan.
  • When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.
Please post the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply along with an update on system behavior.

Hi,

i am still unable to connect to the internet since the laptop in question is unable to detect any wireless networks. Furthermore, the network diagnosis tool did not seem to be working. I am assuming this is all virus related rather than due to my unfamiliarity with vista.

The link you gave me for the recovery disk setup directed me to install a setup disk for XP (the OS of the laptop i am using here), however the infected laptop is using Vista. Should i not therefore be downloading a setup disk for Vista?

Regards

My apologies, there is no Recovery Console download for Vista. Vista has what is known as Recovery Environment accessible via Repair your computer option, or via the Vista install disk.

Please proceed with running ComboFix.

Hi,

i've tried running comobofix but it seems to be stuck at the "attempting to create a new system restore point" part. Initially a progress bar did pop up and completed but since then it hasn't done much. The cursor is still blinking.

I waited for about an hour and half and then decided to try to close it down to try again but it won't close. Ctrl +alt +delete does nothing. Should I force a restart and then try again? Since i tried to close it the clock in the bottom right seems to have froze so i assume the whole laptop has froze - though the cursor is still blinking.

As much as I dislike hard shut downs, yes. If you can't bring up Task Manager end process on any files with a .cfexe extension, then yes - force a restart.

Boot into Safe Mode and try running ComboFix from there.

Have now tried it in safe mode. When the -c.bat window comes up i get a message that the system cannot find message text for message number 0x8.

I then get a two messages saying something about how i do not have admnistrator permisson - access denied, even though i right clicked and ran the programme as an administrator.

Anyway, it did then proceed however it did not open a log at the end. It did say it was generating one but nothing ever opened.

I have since rebooted in normal mode. Many of the original symptoms still seem to remain and i still cannot detect any wireless networks, however the CPU and RAM details are now present under system and maintenance, so that is some improvement.

McAfee is interfering with ComboFix being able to complete.

Now that McAfee is working again, I'll need for you to go in and properly disable it. Open McAfee Security Center
  • Under Common Tasks click on Home
  • Click Computer Files
  • Click Configure
  • Make sure the following are disabled by ticking the "Off" button.

    Virus protection
    Spyware protection
    System Guards Protection
    Script Scanning Protection (you may have to scroll down to see it)​
  • Next, select never for "When to re-enable real time scanning"
  • and click OK.

Now try again to run ComboFix. If you see the message again about not having admin priveleges, wait it out. It's an internal fight with the malware for control. :wink:

The problem with mcafee is that it doesn't seem to respond. When i try to open it the McAfee logo flashes up briefly but then nothing happens. I checked the task manager and all the processes related to McAfee were stopped. Also i cant see an 'M' in the tray.

Having checked that, i tried combofix again this time back in normal mode and lo and behold it seemed to run fine so i've posted the log below.

Symptoms seem to remain though. I still cant detect any wireless networks but maybe that is me being a dunce on vista. When i try to diagnose i end up in a 'services' window to run 'diagnostic policy service' but it doesn't seem to be letting me alter the status of any of the services :(

When i try to open it the McAfee logo flashes up briefly but then nothing happens. I checked the task manager and all the processes related to McAfee were stopped. Also i cant see an 'M' in the tray.
Click Start>All Programs and look for McAfee in the list. Does it give you the option to Repair? Is the subscription paid for and still active? If not, you should just uninstall it and use another AV. There are a couple of really good free AV's I can point you to if needed.


Symptoms seem to remain though. I still cant detect any wireless networks but maybe that is me being a dunce on vista. When i try to diagnose i end up in a 'services' window to run 'diagnostic policy service' but it doesn't seem to be letting me alter the status of any of the services :(
I'm not seeing any other malware in the logs, so we need to consider OS or hardware issues.
  • What brand is this laptop? It's possible the wireless detection has been turned off and you need to reset it via an external button.
  • When you have tried to detect wireless networks, are you running off battery power? If so, it could be a power management setting that turns off wireless detection to save power.
  • Have you tried uninstalling the wireless card via Device Manager? Uninstall it, reboot and Vista OS should automatically detect and reinstall it.

I've now uninstalled McAfee, there was no option to repair.

The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525. There are a few external buttons one of which seems like it might correspond to the wireless however it already seems to be at the 'on' position. I've fiddled around with them to no success.

In device manager -> Network adapters, I have
PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network connection
PCI-E fast ethernet controller
Microsoft Tun Miniport Adapter #2

I assumed the first of these was my network card so i uninstalled it and Vista re-installed on restart however there is no change and it says the device is working properly. However the Tun Miniport Adapter does have an issue and cannot start (code 10). Does this have anything to do with my problems?

In the 'Network connections' window it does say that the wireless network connection is enabled, however when i try to connect to a network I am told it cant find any networks. I have the laptop plugged in so it shouldn't be a power saving issue. Also my older XP laptop is sitting right next to it and can detect 4 networks (admittedly with low signal strength but strong enough to connect to the internet fine).

Troubleshooting that issue is not an easy task, especially since the expertise and focus of this section is malware removal. :sigh: At this point you'd be much better served by the folks in our Networking Support section.

Do let them know you have been cleared from the malware removal section.

Yes, begin a new thread there and post the hardware specs they ask for. You can also give them a link to this thread for reference as well. :smile:
