Malware temporaraly overwrote malwarebytes.

Recommended Posts

I temporaraly had a malware temporarally overwrite malwarebytes....

And masquarade as it....

Adding dozens of DLL's, from dozens of programs to the malwarebytes quarentine list, rendering most of them inoperable.

Malwarebytes: Vbalsgrid6.ocx (Caused "runtime error 339" to occur when I tried to run the real malwarebytes,) Mbamservice.exe, \

Flux: Flux.exe (Disabled one of my favorite applets.)

Steam: Half its DLL's.

Taskmanager: It would simply close taskmanager

Fortunately, chamelion was able to kill it, and I was forcedd to reinstall malwarebytes.

However, I now have hundreds of DLL's quarenteened, and virtually every program, driver, and the likes is in need of a reinstall from a total DLL failure.

The thing is, all of them are on the malware bytes quarenteen list.

These things are mostly files I personally installed, and I want them back.... How do I restore these files? The malwarebytes quick restore isn't working.

Hello Raraborialis and welcome to MalwareBytes forum.

Reminder, if you're an MBAM PRO customer, you may contact the Consumer Help Desk directly here.

If you are in an organization or a corporate customer, contact Corporate Support for assistance.

What is your Windows version?

Are you able to login to normal mode? yes/no ?

If not, you can restart into Safe mode with Networking or Safe mode in order to do research & to get reports.

IF you cannot download on this system, please use another one to do that and use a new USB-flash-thumb drive to do transfers back and forth.

Be sure to save tools to the Desktop.

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.com here

or http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.scr or


Disable any script blocker if your antivirus/antimalware has it.

For directions on how, see How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Do NOT turn off the firewall

Double click dds to run the tool.

DDS will run in a command prompt window and will take 3 to 4 minutes or so.

Follow and answer the prompts as appropriate.

  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
  • DDS.txt
  • Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop.

Please Copy & Paste contents of the following logs in your next reply:



Use NOTEPAD to Copy all contents of each log, then Paste directly into main-body of reply box.

Do -not- use the attach option unless a single log is way-too-large & won't fit.

I am able to run in normal mode currently.

Tech support has sent me a specific set of tools for fixing a portion of the issues... Which is undoubtedly the "Trojan downloader ED" false positive error.

Currently, I am working out the issue with them...

But there is a large number of semi-perminantly lost DLL, so later I will probably need help in recovering these things once me and customer support finish working on the issues.
