Skynet error when I do anything


Recommended Posts

Last week I had Maurice Nagger helping with removing uacinit.dll, immediately after removing that (before I even was able to run windows update) I starting getting the error globalroot\systemroot\sys32\skynetiwxcqrox.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.

I ran Malwarebytes, it didn't find any problems. I ran McAfee and it found the infected files and thinks it either deleted or quarantined them, but I'm still getting the errors.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Here's my MBAM log:

Hi,

Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved and renamed following this process directly to your desktop**

  1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:
    • Tools->Options->Main tab
    • Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

[*]During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:

CF_download_FF.gif

CF_download_rename.gif

[*]It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.

[*]Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.

[*]Close any open browsers.

[*]Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

-----------------------------------------------------------

  • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

    -----------------------------------------------------------


  • Close any open browsers.
  • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
  • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
  • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.

-----------------------------------------------------------

[*]Double click on combo-Fix.exe & follow the prompts.

[*]When finished, it will produce a report for you.

[*]Please post the "C:\Combo-Fix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.

**Note: Do not mouseclick combo-fix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

If you still cannot get this to run, try booting into Safe Mode, and run it there.

To boot into Safe Mode, tap F8 after BIOS, and just before the Windows logo appears. A list of options will appear, select "Safe Mode."

If this doesn't work either, try the same method (above method), but name Combofix.exe to iexplore.exe instead, or winlogon.exe..

This because It also happens in some cases that malware blocks EVERY process except for what is in its own whitelist, so this whitelist also includes system important processes such as iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, winlogon.exe...

Also, Extra note: The combofix tutorial recommends to disable your Antivirus, in your case McAfee. For McAfee, I rather recommend to temporary uninstall it, because Mcafee causes a lot of problems with Combofix after reboot, this because McAfee enables again after reboot. So please temporary uninstall McAfee first, then reboot and then scan with Combofix.

Thanks for your help....

I ran combo-fix without uninstalling McAfee, but there is an option when you turn it off to restart "Never" so even on a reboot it doesn't start again.

Here's the combo log:

ComboFix 09-08-24.06 - momanddad 08/25/2009 8:12.2.2 - NTFSx86

Hi,

* Go to start > run and copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /u

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and resets System Restore again.

Let me know in your next reply how things are now.

Good to hear.

Glad I could help. :D

Please read my Prevention page with lots of info and tips how to prevent this in the future.

And if you want to improve speed/system performance after malware removal, take a look here.

Extra note: Make sure your programs are up to date - because older versions may contain Security Leaks. To find out what programs need to be updated, please run the Secunia Software Inspector Scan.

Happy Surfing again!

I've been trying to install Windows Updates to my PC all day. Some install, some fail. I get the Windows Update error 80070490. It means that a file (CBS Manifest) that's needed to install updates is corrupt. To correct the problem I need to repair windows. I did not get a Windows DVD with my computer, so I don't have the disk to do the repair. Are you familiar with this issue and can you help me to resolve it, or should I be contacting Microsoft.

I did follow the instructions for downloading a repair disk from here: http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vist...-disc-download/

But this just creates a boot disk that wants to do a startup repair (which isn't my issue, so I'm not sure if that would be correct) or a clean install (which I don't want to do)

The instructions under windows help and support do not say to boot from the disk, the instructions just say to run it from the disk drive and select the Upgrade option. The disk created from the above website does not have that option. I tried using my Anytime Upgrade disk, but that also did not work. I have 9 Security Updates for WIndows Vista waiting to be installed, but they all fail.

Hi,

You can't do anything with a boot disk. You need to have your original disk to repair your Vista. Didn't you get any disk with this pc? Anyway, please go through the steps here and try them (without needing the repair)

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums...78-9d8e1bac4592

And if that doesn't help, then, since you have an Acer Pc; It says you should have a recovery cd. Or there's a recovery partition. It's called the Acer eRecovery Management option in Acer. See this pdf for usage:

ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/desktop/e...t%20english.pdf
