Malware and MBAM.exe missing

Recommended Posts

God, you guys have a lot to deal with on this site and I feel terrible for asking, but a lot of people seem to be having the same problem. I had the Security Tool Malware attack and I managed to delete and take it off the startup menu. But I cannot run MBAM, as the mbam.exe had been removed. I can't reinstall it either and the whole renaming the file hasn't been working either. I have also been getting a lot of popups in Firefox and have been getting the google redirect thigs too if that matters.

Help would be greatly appreciated! :)

I need to see some logs before I can do anything


Downloads and Reports Required:


Before scanning, make sure all other running programs are closed

There shouldn't be any scheduled antivirus scans running while the scan is being performed.

Do not use your computer for anything else during the scan.





Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here or here.

Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds.scr to run the tool.

  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt

    [*]Save both reports to your desktop.





Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here or here.

  • Extract the contents of the zipped file to desktop.
  • Double click GMER.exe. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent .
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...say NO.
  • In the right panel, you will see a bunch of boxes that have been checked ... leave everything checked and uncheck the Show all box.
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
  • Once done click on the [save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop


Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries


How the logs should be furnished:


Copy/Paste the contents of 'DDS.txt' to be posted as text to your post

The other two logs ...

* attach.txt

* gmer.txt

... should be zipped/archived before attaching to the post
