NanoClient has appeared in System Tray

Recommended Posts


I've got a problem the same as other users have reported.

NanoCore client has appeared in my system tray and masquerades as Microsoft .NET Services Installation Tool in task manager (but the nanocore icon gives it away). Although the task can be ended, it comes back after a short delay.

I've just run FRST and upload the FRST and Addition logs.

I'd be really appreciative of any help you can offer to remove this.

I did as you suggested and I think my problem might be fixed now.

I've attached 3 log files. The first one 170614.txt is from earlier this week when I was experiencing the problem.

170616.txt is from early today and suggests that a problem was found.

170616-2.txt is from just now, and to me suggests that the problem is now cleared.

I'm wondering if to begin with that MalwareBytes was using old definitions (even though I always download the latest) but now it has updated the definitions to improve its detection capabilities?

I'd be interested to hear what your thoughts are please?

You have some old versions of AVG antivirus on the computer. Please download and run the  AVG Removal Tool from AVG and run it to remove all old stuff from AVG and then reboot the computer.

You also have a very old and compromised version of Java installed along with P2P uTorrent and eMule software. I would highly recommend you uninstall both and stop using them if you value the security of your computer and it's data.
If you really have to have Java then make sure you always keep it up to date: https://java.com

Please go into Control Panel, Programs, Add/Remove and uninstall all versions of Java.


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Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.
