Windows 7 2012 Antivirus malware

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Bit of a noobie at this, but read some of the posts related to the malware I picked up yesterday.

Somehow I Managed to get one of the worst malwares Id seen in a long while yesterday. It completely borked my system with a windows 7 2012 fake anti virus programe that blocke all of my .exes all over the pc, and to top it off replaced my screen with a blue screen trying to appear like a official windows error message and giving me a hand ful of nigerian numbers to call to recieve a code to fix the pc. Very dodgy stuff.

I amanged to get into safe mode with the malware still active, and renamed the malware bytes exe as a .com file, and managed to start it up, identify the files and clean the pc. Things were fixed when I went back to normal mode. I used mbam again and it found and deleted more crap. I beelived everything was ok, but after thinking about it more im still concerned there is something wrong. The PC is not slow, not acting weird, but when I log in I get a taskbar pop up saying additional log in info may be required on the little network icon. Doesnt seem right. So Ive ran mbam again and here is the log. I just want to make sure my pcs clean, and doesnt have a backdoor trojan that Ive read about and my pc security is compromised. If this is the case I will reinstall Windows 7.

I have hd malwares before, namely through executing legitimate files that some censoredwit has tampered with, but have been sucessful in removing them. Heres the log:

It says nothing is infected, but is this really the case. Are there any other programs like DDS and combofix that I should be using to make sure its 100% gone.

Any advice would be greatly apprecaited.

Kind Regards,

Please do not attach the scan results from Combofx. Use copy/paste.

DO NOT use any TOOLS such as Combofix, or HijackThis fixes without supervision.

Doing so could make your pc inoperatible and could require a full reinstall of your OS, losing all your programs and data.

Vista and Windows 7 users:

1. These tools MUST be run from the executable. (.exe) every time you run them

2. With Admin Rights (Right click, choose "Run as Administrator")

Stay with this topic until I give you the all clean post.

You might want to print these instructions out.

I suggest you do this:

Click the Tools menu, and then click Folder Options.

Click the View tab.

Uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types."

Click Apply, and then click OK.
