HELP!!!! :(


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a very distressed person trying to get rid of infections on my computer. I am Using Vista SP1. I ran a scan on AVG 8.0 recently and it found 477 warnings. All of them are in the HKLM/software/internet explorer/activex compatibility/(bunch of scrambled letters). I moved them to the virus vault.

Then I ran a scan on MBAM and this is the log :

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.17

Next, I ran pandascan but it was taking too long, so i decided to just post these logs up first. I will post the panda scan log later.

After this i ran HiJackThis And This is the Log I got:

I'm pretty sure those warnings from AVG were all False Positivses.

AVG 8 detects the registry entries made by Spywareblaster or Spybot S & D but does not look at the value.

So, Spywareblaster or Spybot S & D creates killbits to prevent malware and AVG removes the protection again..... :P

AVG said;

"The situation, which you have described is caused by incompatibility

between AVG and Spyware Blaster security application on your computer

and we would like to recommend you to uninstall Spyware Blaster and

all the other security applications from your computer (if you are

using any) to avoid possible conflict situations between AVG and the

other software.

An "ActiveX Compatibility" registry key is a result of the "Immunize" function included in some anti-spyware programs (e.g.: "Spybot search & destroy", "Spyware blaster",...)

The key contains the same registry entries as the actual threats, thus preventing them from working correctly. Some anti-spyware programs use this method to prevent launching of the malware. Unfortunately, these parts are still detected by AVG signatures and that is why AVG marks them as infected.

To assure protection provided by AVG against these threats, it is not possible to remove such signatures from AVG virus bases.

Because of this, "Immunize" function included in above mentioned softwares is NOT compatible with AVG products.

"

Javacool said;

"This simply isn't correct.

A.) The contents of the registry are not the same as the actual threats. They are very specific, and easily detectable as valid "kill bits" (simply looking for a value of 1024, which is used to set the kill bit). It should be little more than a few lines of code on AVG's end to fix the false positives.

B.) Those registry locations/entries, even if not marked as kill bits, are largely just remnants anyway. By themselves, they can do no harm. So while it may be nice to clean them up (if they aren't valid entries) when deleting an actual threat, the severity is largely overstated in AVG's FAQ text.

C.) SpywareBlaster's ActiveX protection and Spybot S & D's immunize function are both, by default, compatible with any anti-virus program, including AVG. The issue here is AVG's behavior, which is unfortunately flagging valid entries as malicious. The fix, on AVG's end, would likely be very simple and quick to implement."

I don't know why you are not able to run ESET online scanner or Panda's. Don't see any signs of malware in your HijackThis log.

Ok Thanks A lot. AVG lists them all as trojans/downloaders/hijackers/adwares. So I moved them to the virus vault anyway. Is it okay to leave it there? Or Should I restore them? And Is there really need to uninstall Spybot S & D? I will try to post the panda scan log... still trying to access the web. I know... I m an idiot. Sorry for taking up your time. Thanks Loads. :P

EDIT : Oh and btw, I've got a few tracking cookies on my system too. Its in the appdata/roaming/mozilla or IE/... Yep. are they dangerous? I just use the web to surf stuff. I don't do any online transactions. And If I delete the account with the tracking cookies in it, will it be okay? I really know nuts about computers. Thanks for the help.

Cookies are no threat. Trackingcookies are used to give you personalized ads or something like that.

Another expert told me that the problem with ESET online scanner (and probably other online scanners) may be solved by running Internet Explorer as admin (rightclick, run as..)

Is it okay to leave it there? Or Should I restore them?

You can run the application again which put them there (Spybot S & D or SpywareBlaster) and after that a scan with AVG 8 will show you the same warnings.
