Black screen after Vista Login after MBAM personalAV cleaning


Recommended Posts

I'm running into an issue where MBAM removed PersonalAV from my machine, and after rebooting I log in to Vista and get a black screen (and occasionally a blue one).

It just hangs there after logging in.

I can still boot the machine in Safe Mode, but just not in the "normal" mode.

Any ideas of what to do next would be greatly appreciated :)

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Nasty infection you have. :)

In Safe Mode With Networking, update MBAM, then run a Quick Scan and post its log.

Next, download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on the DDS icon and let the scan run. When it has run two logs will be produced, please post the one that is not minimized.

Hi,

Update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, please visit this webpage for instructions for running ComboFix:

Hi,

Next, please use the Internet Explorer browser and click here to use the F-Secure Online Scanner.

  • Click Start Scanning.
  • You should get a notification bar (on top) to install the ActiveX control.
  • Click on it and select to install the ActiveX.
  • Once the ActiveX is installed, you should accept the License terms by clicking OK below to start the scan.
  • In case you are having problems with installing the ActiveX/starting the scan, please read here.
  • Click the Full System Scan button.
  • It will start to download scanner components and databases. This can take a while.
  • The main scan will start.
  • Once the scan has finished scanning, click the Automatic cleaning (recommended) button
  • It could be possible that your firewall gives an alert - allow it, because that's a connection you establish to submit infected files to F-Secure.
  • The cleaning can take a while, so please be patient.
  • Then click the Show report button and Copy/Paste what is present under results in your next reply.

Next, download my Security Check from here or here.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

Let me know how things are running now and what issues remain.

I'll run the next suggested step in a few moments . . .

I cannot complete the scan because it tells me that it does not have sufficient permissions to scan everything (code 65).

What should I do now?

Hi,

Navigate to Start --> Run, and type Combofix /uninstall in the box that appears. Click OK afterward. Notice the space between the X and the /uninstall

This uninstalls all of ComboFix's components.

Delete SecurityCheck.

After that, navigate to Start --> Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs, and uninstall the following programs (if present):

Java
