Comodo Cleaning Essentials reports still infected


Recommended Posts

Over a year ago my computer was infected with a nasty AntiVirus 2011 infection. Used all kinds of antimalware and antivirus tools (Malwarebytes, TDDSkiller, unhide, etc) and the laptop has been functioning pretty well. However, I never could reinstall McAffee Antivirus, for example.

Recently read a CNET article about software such as Comodo Cleaning Essentials and gave it a go. It found some more infections and cleaned many of them out. However, it reports that there are still 8 items that it failed to clean, all of them located in a subdirectory c:\windows\$NTUninstallKB5332$\2760683608\

I posted to the Comodo forum and they had me try a zeroaccess removal tool as well as Kapersky Rescue Disk 10, but neither did the trick.

I googled and saw one post where ComboFix removed files in this subdirectory but, reading the combofix warnings, would not dare just running it unless told to do so.

Wondering if any expert at this forum might have some suggestions. I've run the DDS.com program (Windows 7 - 32 bit machine, I did not have the option to run as administrator) and have attached the files, as well as a screen shot of the results of the Comodo Cleaning Essentials results.

I do appreciate any assistance.

Thank you.

Welcome to the forum.

Please remove any usb or external drives from the computer before you run this scan!

For Vista or Windows 7, do a right-click on the program, select Run as Administrator to start, & when prompted Allow to run.

Click Scan to scan the system.

Don't run any other options, they're not all bad!!!!!!!

Run RogueKiller again and click Scan

When the scan completes > click on the Registry tab

Put a check next to all of these and uncheck the rest: (if found)

[services][ROGUE ST] HKLM\[...]\ControlSet001\Services\5689 (\??\C:\windows\TEMP\5689.sys) -> FOUND

[services][ROGUE ST] HKLM\[...]\ControlSet002\Services\5689 (\??\C:\windows\TEMP\5689.sys) -> FOUND

Now click Delete on the right hand column under Options


Please read the directions carefully so you don't end up deleting something that is good!!

Please download the latest version of TDSSKiller from here and save it to your Desktop.

  • Doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then click on Change parameters.
  • Put a checkmark beside loaded modules.
  • A reboot will be needed to apply the changes. Do it.
  • TDSSKiller will launch automatically after the reboot. Also your computer may seem very slow and unusable. This is normal. Give it enough time to load your background programs.
  • Then click on Change parameters in TDSSKiller.
  • Check all boxes then click OK.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • The scan should take no longer than 2 minutes.
  • If a suspicious object is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
    Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
    Note: If Cure is not available, please choose Skip instead, do not choose Delete unless instructed.
  • A report will be created in your root directory, (usually C:\ folder) in the form of "TDSSKiller.[Version]_[Date]_[Time]_log.txt". Please copy and paste the contents of that file here. There may be 3 logs > so post or attach all of them.
  • Sometimes these logs can be very large, in that case please attach it or zip it up and attach it.

Here's a summary of what to do if you would like to print it out:

If a suspicious object is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue

If you get the warning about a file UnsignedFile.Multi.Generic or LockedFile.Multi.Generic please choose

Skip and click on Continue

If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results and offer three (3) options.

Ensure Cure is selected, then click Continue => Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.

Note: If Cure is not available, please choose Skip instead, do not choose Delete unless instructed.

The little buggers won't go away....

Any other suggestions? (I am getting to the point that reinstall windows doesn't seem such a bad idea). The problem is I have no idea if this is actually an active problem. I have run eset, malwarebytes, the TDDSKiller, Hitman Pro (which cleaned up the original rootkit). Only Comodo cleaning essentials is reporting this but it can't clean it using Comodo. Appreciate any info or just let me know if I should punt and reinstall....

ComboFix should get it but there's a chance you'll loose your connection....so >

Please back up the registry:



Please create a new system restore point.

If after running ComboFix you can't connect to the internet, please navigate to

the C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT folder and run ERDNT.exe to restore the registry....reboot and try it.

If that doesn't work....use that system restore point and that will correct the problem.


Please download and run ComboFix.

The most important things to remember when running it is to disable all your malware programs and run Combofix from your desktop.

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix


Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Information on disabling your malware programs can be found Here.

Make sure you run ComboFix from your desktop.

Give it at least 30-45 minutes to finish if needed.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.


If you get the message Illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion after you run ComboFix....please reboot the computer, this should resolve the problem. You may have to do this several times if needed.

Java™ 6 Update 35 <-----please uninstall from add/remove programs

Java version out of Date! <---download and install the latest version from Here

You have out dated programs on the system which are vulnerable to malware.

Please update or delete them

Info on doing that can be found in my Preventive Maintenance


A little clean up to do....

Please Uninstall ComboFix: (if you used it)

Press the Windows logo key + R to bring up the "run box"

Copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /


Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and clears System Restore cache and create new Restore point

(If that doesn't work.....you can simply rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe and double click it to complete the uninstall)


Please download OTL from one of the links below: (you may already have OTL on the system)




Save it to your desktop.

Run OTL and hit the CleanUp button. (This will cleanup the tools and logs used including itself)

Any other programs or logs you can manually delete.

IE: RogueKiller.exe, RKreport.txt, RK_Quarantine folder, C:\FRST, etc....


Any questions...please post back.

If you think I've helped you, please leave a comment > click on my avatar picture > click Profile Feed.

Take a look at My Preventive Maintenance to avoid being infected again.

Good Luck and Thanks for using the forum, MrC
