  1. Sorry been busy on a friday... I restarted the computer again today and the MSE popped up in the tray. The taskmngr has MS security client running (which I suppose is the .exe for MSE). The msconfig -> startup has the "MS Security Client" checked for startup. It just wasnt the obvious title of "MS Essentials" I was looking for. Everything looks back to normal and I appreciate all the help, the removal and all the links to disable useless software and what-have-you. I will certainly keep MBAM up to date and compute more discerningly. Thanks again Mr C. ~FrankR

  3. That box was already unchecked. I went to msconfig. Microsoft Security Essentials was not listed in the startup. There is, however, a "Microsoft Security Client."
  4. Perfect....it is now gone. One small thing, my MSE doesnt appear in my tray. I assume its working in the background (maybe I assume too much) but Im not sure if it is turned on upon startup or if I turn it on when I go to Start -> Programs -> MSE. Nothing in the settings deal with shortcuts or tray icons.
  5. I also dealt with this malware and unhid some things. However now my start menu looks quite inadequate:
  6. Trust me, I want to rid myself of unwanted programs. Its just that I went to control panels and uninstalled the viewer, however I still see it in my task manager. I even restarted to see if the ViewpointService.exe was still starting up and sure enough it is (despite my control panel uninstalling it). Thoughts? Could I just deleted the files from my C: or is that not preferred? The item is gone from the control panel but the file remains... I did get MSE up and running, it is now catching up with updates. I also disabled the 5 services listed on the link as it instructed.
  7. The viewer. Im kinda thinking that is something that is part of my hp or OS. I dont see it on my control panel uninstall list and the task manager thinks its part of the system: The OTL did make me reboot. Here is the log that popped up after reboot. 12152011_123153.log
  8. Uninstall went ok...I downloaded the exe went to install and toward the end of the install this popped up:
  9. Problem with combofix. When it was up and running it disabled my MS Essentials. The moment I uninstalled combo fix, the red MS Essentials popped back in the tray and its still doing the same stuff I captured on the screenshots. So I dont know if I need to reinstall MS Essentials or what. I did update java and took care of OTL as described.
  10. Its running pretty good. I will have to reinstall MS Essentials, but other than that I cant complain. Updating MBAM and scanning when things get slow... Thanks for all your help MrC.

  12. Im not sure if combofix is able to finish... Its stuck on the bluescreen where it says it "should take less than 10mins or sometimes twice as long". Then a popup came up saying my system has a "rootkit zero access, it messes with the tcp/ip stack" and I should restart if I cannot access internet. Is it safe to restart with combofix up?
  13. Ok did the combofix. I had the rootkit zero access. MrC, should I continue the instructions on on the combofix link you gave me with the manual "windows recovery"? Or is that only if my OS was disturbed? I guess I dont know if the "automatic install of Recovery Console" occurred. BTW, thanks for the help. ComboFix.txt
