Fake AV and MB VB 0/440 error


Recommended Posts

I got some fake antivirus popups. I attempted to just kill it by disabling everything in msconfig and deleting the funny named folder it was pointing to in the application data folder. I tried to install MB and I get a VB 0 and 440 error at installation and attempting to run it. The fixes I've tried are renaming application name, updating VB from microsoft and also the regsvr32 MBAM Fix.bat file (which gives me an error. regsvr32 is not in the system32, but regsvr32.ex_ is in the i386 folder?).

I'm pretty sure I killed the original infection incorrectly, if at all. So any help would be appreciated. I ran a command line scan with AVG in safe mode, but it only came up with 69 locked files and no infections.

Anyway, here's the HijackThis log:

All 3 files are attached.

I've also noted an issue when starting up. It takes about 10 minutes to act "normal", but something is stalling the startup of my computer. I can start programs from my desktop easily...most easily opened is process explorer and google chrome. if i try and open up programs from the start menu or icons near the clock, it causes the task bar becomes locked up and the programs do not open. also, if google chrome tries to open a popup, it crashes. after 10 minutes or so, i've noted process explorer says that imapi.exe and alg.exe start up, but imapi.exe is closed on its own...after that, the computer runs normally and all the programs i tried to open earlier now popup at the same time

Hi,

BitTorrent

Above listed ones are P2P file sharing programs. P2P downloads are nowadays one of those things that most likely bring infection into the system. My recommendation is to uninstall these (and other if present) P2P file sharing programs.

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully first.

Please continue as follows:

  1. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
    Remember to re-enable them afterwards.
  2. Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

C:\ComboFix.txt

New dds log.

Save this as

CFScript

Close all browser windows, disable protection and refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

Then post the resultant log.

Uninstall your current Adobe shockwave player and get the fresh one here if needed.

Hi,

Uninstall MBAM (if it's visible in add/remove programs) and then try to reinstall. Delete those files Kaspersky flagged.

I deleted the noted files and uninstalled/reinstalled MBAM but I'm still getting VB errors :). Maybe it just wasn't meant to be

You're welcome :)

THESE STEPS ARE VERY IMPORTANT

Let's reset system restore

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected. Please note you need Administrator Access to do clean the restore points.

1. Turn off System Restore.

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.

Click Properties.

Click the System Restore tab.

Check Turn off System Restore.

Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.

Click Properties.

Click the System Restore tab.

UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.

Click Apply, and then click OK.

NOTE: only do this ONCE,NOT on a regular basis

Now lets uninstall ComboFix:

  • Click START then RUN
  • Now copy-paste Combofix /uninstall in the runbox and click OK

Please download OTC and save it to desktop.

  • Double-click OTC.exe.
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • Select Yes when the
    Begin cleanup Process?
    prompt appears.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself.

Note: If you receive a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTC attempting to contact the internet, please allow it to do so.

UPDATING WINDOWS AND INTERNET EXPLORER

IMPORTANT: You Need to Update Windows and Internet Explorer to protect your computer from the malware that is around on the Internet. Please go to the windows update site to get the critical updates.

If you are running Microsoft Office, or any portion thereof, go to the Microsoft's Office Update site and make sure you have at least all the critical updates installed (Free) Microsoft Office Update.

Make your Internet Explorer more secure

This can be done by following these simple instructions:

From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.

Click once on the Security tab

Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.

Click once on the Custom Level button.

Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt

Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable

Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable

Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt

Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt

Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt

When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.

If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.

Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

The following are recommended third party programs that are designed to keep your computer clean. A link as well as a brief description is included with each item.

  • hosts file:
    • Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them.
    • In a very basic sense, they are used to locate webpages.
    • We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain webpages.
    • However, it can slow down certain computers.
    • This is why using a hosts file is optional!!

    Download it here. Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial here

    If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:



    1. Click the start button (at the lower left hand corner of your screen)
    2. Click run
    3. In the dialog box, type services.msc
    4. hit enter, then locate dns client
    5. Highlight it, then double-click it.
    6. On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
    7. Click ok

    [*]Run Secunia vulnerability check here and fix its findings.

Just a final reminder for you. I am trying to stress these two points.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!! Make sure you do this about every 1-2 weeks.

Make sure all of your security programs are up to date.

Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

Once again, please post and tell me how things are going with your system... problems etc.

Have a great day,

Blade :)
