Recommended Posts

Hi Guys. Writing from Central America, so if there are some mistakes with my english, please forgive me.

I've recently installed BitDefender in it's trial mode, and since yesterday it has been telling me that i have problems with a malware called BitCoinMiner.AS. I've been searching for this problem solution, but i can't find the .AS type.

The message BitDefender shows is: The file\Device\HarddiskVolume2\WIndows\TEMP\tmp000...(etc) might be used for malicious activities. BitDefender could not clean this item. Your computer is at risk. Application name: Application.BitCoinMiner.AS

I really nedd help here.

Thanks!

Hi! Thanks for the reply!
I've been running the Combofix, but i have a question. It says that it won't take more than 10 minutes or 20 if the machine is badly infected, but mine has been running for more than an hour and it's stucked in stage 32. It's normal?

Hi. Thanks for the help.

I just want to add that i'm having troubles with my AV. I did what the link said about turning off the AV (BitDefender) , but checking in the task manager, i found some McAfee processes. I had McAfee installed in my pc for the past three years, but i uninstalled it the past week and it seems to be some problems with that uninstallation.

Well, here are my logs.

I'll be waiting your answer.

Thanks!

Okay, this is a bit of an aggressive fix but it should stop McAfee and many of the toolbar items and other issues.

Once we're all done here then if there is any functionality that is not working you can go ahead and install the latest version of the application and that should fix it.

 

Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

Great the log shows it was able to remove a lot of those items for us.

 

Please download the following tool and save it to your computer.  Then right click over it and choose "Run as administrator" to have it uninstall any leftover items from McAfee Antivirus.

 

McAfee Antivirus Removal Tool

 

 

Once that's done please reboot the computer and run MBAM again and check for updates and then do a Quick Scan and post back that log.

 

 

Next, download Security Check from here or here.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

 

 

Thanks
