When trying to install MWAB"Runtime Error (at 92:137): Could not call proc."

I'm trying to help my dad with his Acer E1-532-2616 laptop with Windows 10 (64 bit)...he has picked up some kind of virus which won't allow me to install MWAB, as I get an error message stating: "runtime error at 92:137, could not call proc."

 

It also does not allow the ability to get on the Internet.

 

In reading other similiar posts, I've run AdWareCleaner and SUPERAntiSpyware, which helped get rid of quite a bit of malware, but am still unable to access the Internet.

 

I also ran FRST and have included that file and the addition.txt file.

 

Hopefully, someone can help me, as I've seen really good evidence of that happening in this forum already.

 

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

    

 

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll try to help your with your issue.

 

     

    

Before we start please read and note the following:

  • We're primarily oriented on malware removal here, so you must know that some issues just cannot be solved and you must be prepared for this. Some tools we use here will remove your browser search history, so backup your important links and all the files whose loss is unacceptable.
  • Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
  • Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
  • Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a More reply options button, that gives you Upload Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
  • Always execute my instructions in given order. If for some reason you cannot completely follow one instruction, inform me about that.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
:excl: I can't foresee everything, so if anything not covered in my instructions happens, please stop and inform me!

:excl: There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

remove%20outdated.jpg Uninstall some programs

We need to uninstall some unwanted/unneeded programs.

  • Press the WindowsKey.png + R on your keyboard at the same time. Type appwiz.cpl and click OK.
  • Search there for each entry mentioned below, right-click the entry and click Uninstall one at a time

The list of programs to uninstall:

  • Crossbrowse
  • Setup

After completing uninstalls, please manually reboot your machine!

Note: If you get the message like: An error occurred while trying to uninstall, just press Yes.
Note: If you are unable to uninstall all programs, please inform me, but continue with other steps.



I do not recommend usage of IOBIT products, they have bad reputation, and are prone to create problems. That is why I suggest to uninstall:
Advanced SystemCare 8
Driver Booster
Game Booster
IObit Malware Fighter
IObit Uninstaller
Smart Defrag 2
Surfing Protection
 
When you see a word "Booster", "Optimizer", "TuneUp" or similar it is often some kind of silly application. You cannot "boost" you system more than it actually is. Microsoft optimized Windows perfectly and they are constantly working on improvements, so these tools are just selling you nothing but "fog".
 
Only way to actually boost your system is to upgrade your hardware by adding SSD, more processor power or more ram memory.

    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.

  • Please attach it to your reply.

Okay, TwinHeadedEagle...here's the latest.

 

I did everything you suggested in the last post.

 

I was unable to uninstall Crossbrowse, Setup or Browser Air, as they weren't in the "Installed Programs" table.

 

So, I went ahead and went to the next step of uninstalling all IOBIT products.

 

I then ran FRST with the fixlist,txt file.

 

After that was complete, I tried installing MWB and was successful.

 

I then ran a complete MWB scan and it found and got rid of 101 threats.

 

I then ran another FRST scan and have included that file along with the addition.txt file.

 

I then installed AVG and ran a scan.  It found 5 threats that it took care of.

 

I'm able to get on the Internet at this point.  

 

Hopefully, we can clean things up and never let this happen again.   :)

It's running like it never had any issues, TwinHeadedEagle.

 

I'm able to get on the Internet, all the good software I need (as far as anti-virus and anti-malware) is on the computer and updated and there doesn't seem to be any further problems.

 

I'm at work at present, but I'll rescan the computer in the morning and send you the FRST.txt and Addition.txt files soon thereafter.

Okay, this was the final cleanup. If you do not have any remaining questions or concerns, I can mark this topic as solved.
 
 
Glad I could help. We will delete all used tools and I'll give you some tips to harden your security and learn how to protect yourself :)

The Importance of Software Updating:

 

 
In order to stay protected it is very important that you regularly update all of your software. Cybercriminals depend on the apathy of users around software updates to keep their malicious endeavor running.
 
Operating systems, such as Windows, and applications, such as Adobe Reader or JAVA, are used by tens of millions of computers and devices around the world, making them a huge target for cybercriminals. Downloading updates and installing them can sometimes be tedious, but the advantages you get from the updates are certainly worth it.

Recommended additional software:

 
 
icon_arrow.gifCCleaner - to clean unneeded temporary files.
icon_arrow.gifMalwarebytes' Anti-Malware - to scan your system from time to time in search for malware.
icon_arrow.gifMalwarebytes' Anti-Exploit - to prevent plenty of mostly exploited vulnerabilities.
icon_arrow.gifMcShield - to prevent infections spread by removable media.
icon_arrow.gifUnchecky - to prevent from installing additional foistware, implemented in legitimate installations.
icon_arrow.gifAdblock - to surf the web without annoying ads! 
 
 

Post-cleanup procedures:

 

 
Download DelFix by Xplode and save it to your desktop.

  • Run the tool by right click on the 51a5ce45263de-delfix.png icon and Run as administrator option.
  • Make sure that these ones are checked:
    • Remove disinfection tools
    • Purge system restore
    • Reset system settings
  • Push Run.
  • The program will run for a few seconds and display a notepad report. You do not need to attach it.

The tool will also record healthy state of registry and make a backup using ERUNT program in %windir%\ERUNT\DelFix
Tool deletes old system restore points and create a fresh system restore point after cleaning.
