AirInstaller (fs)


Recommended Posts

Howdy guys. Haven't been here in a while since I got help form you guys months ago. Here's my querry; I ran the usual weekly scans of MalPro and MSE because my system has been slower than normal. Both came up clean so I Google searched different processes running in task manager. Found another techie site that had pretty much everything searchable. Had multiple, as in 7, svchost.exe running at the same time. Went back to the tech site and click click click found the explination. It also had a scan option; so I ran it. It was Ad Aware Anti-virus (free). All it found was Airinstaller(fs). Since I have different Adobe applications installed on my system, my question is this; Could it have mistaken the Adobe AIR application for the virus? Sys info: 2007 eMachines EL1200, Windows XP Home2002 SP3, AMD 2650e processor,1.6 GHz 896mb RAM, Comcast ISP, MagicJack plug-in, Firefox browser.

Hi there,

my name is Marius and I will be assisting you with your Malware related problems.

Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.

  • First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.
  • Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.
  • If you have any problems while you are follow my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.
  • Do not run any other scans without instruction or Add/ Remove Software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.
  • Post all Logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
  • Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.
  • My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.

Airinstaller(fs) has nothing to do with your adobe products - it is some kind of adware.

Please download 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 Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and 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. Please save it to a convenient location.
  • The log can also be found here:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt
  • Or at C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt
  • Post that log back here.
