attempted to download a free version of a DVD ripper program last night. When I turned on my computer this morning, Windows Defender was freaking out! I tried to run search and destroy, Windows defender and even install Malewarebytes, but whatever it is has prevented me from doing that, or logging onto the internet.

Luckily, I have access to another computer, so, based on the Sticky up top, I first rebooted in Safe Mode to see if I could run Windows Defender or Search and Destroy. No luck. I backed up all my document and pictures files to be safe. While in Safe mode, I attempted to install Malwarebytes off of a flash drive, but wa unable to do so.

I downloaded HiJack this onto a flash drive and installed it on the infected computer. I have the file log, if someone would like to help me out.

Thank in advance,
Mike

Go ahead and post the HJT log.
Also download rkill.com. Once it is downloaded, double-click on the rkill.com in order to automatically attempt to stop any processes associated with the infection. When it has finished, the black window will automatically close and you can continue with the next step. You may get a message that rkill.com is an infection, ignore it, many infections produce this warning in order to get the user to stop using rkill.com. If you run into these infections warnings that close Rkill, a trick is to leave the warning on the screen and then run Rkill again. By not closing the warning, this typically will allow you to bypass the malware trying to protect itself so that rkill can terminate the running files. please try running Rkill until malware is no longer running. You will then be able to proceed with the rest of these steps.
Please then try to install MBA-M. If you still do not have internet access then you will have to install it via the flash drive. Be sure the copy on there is the latest one as you will not be able to update.
If you still cannot install in normal mode then go ahead and try to install it in safe mode. This isn't usually recommended as often the scan is not going to be totally complete since MBA-M won't load all of its drivers in safe mode but I was able to do this just this week on a computer infected with Total PC Defender.
Try to install it onto the infected computer and run a Full Scan with it, even in Safe Mode. Once it is complete and shows the results have it Remove All found.
You will have to reboot to complete the removal. Go ahead and allow it to reboot to normal mode. If the infection remains, uninstall MBA-M, and reinstall from the flash drive again, don't use the install file from the first install if it remains on the computer, because some of those files may be infected. Do a totally new reinstall. See if you can then scan in normal mode and follow the same procedure you followed the first time.
Then post back here with the logs.
Judy

Thanks Judy. This is what I have so far:

You must TURN OFF Spybot TeaTimer as it will interfere with fixes attempted.

* Run Spybot-S&D in Advanced Mode
* If it is not already set to do this, go to the Mode menu
select
Advanced Mode
* On the left hand side, click on Tools
* Then click on the Resident icon in the list
* Uncheck
Resident TeaTimer
and OK any prompts.
* Restart your computer

Ok, now in normal mode Uninstall MBA-M, download it if possible from HERE, install and update and run a new Full Scan. Remove all that is found. Reboot.
Run a new HJT scan. Post back with the new MBA-M log and the new HJT log.

The problem is now that I can't run any programs in Safe mode or Normal Mode. I turned off the teatimer by using msconfig, but I am unable to do anything further. Any other suggestions?

This is beyond stressful!

This is beyond stressful!

So you are saying that the computer doesn't boot now at all, correct?
or when you say you cannot run any programs do you only mean security programs?

If you cannot run any programs at all then how did you run msconfig?

Why did you use msconfig to turn off TeaTimer, that was not the instruction, and honestly don't know for sure that will work.

I can't run any AV programs (Search and destroy, Mawarebytes, etc.) in either safe or normal mode, so the only way I could access the teatimer was through the processes in msconfig (while in safe mde). If that was the wrong thing to do, I apologize,.

The last time I tried to boot in safe mode, I locked up at the screen that says F1 for startup options... Because this has completely shut down Windows Defender, which was flagging a lot the trojans, I was concerned that they were working in the background, so I shut the laptop down and pulled the battery.

I don't know if that was the right thing to do, but I am trying to minimize damage until I could get further advice.

0

Did you run any other programs, other than those mentioned here? This seems rather odd happening with just those programs having been run. Exactly WHEN did this happen? Immediately after running MBA-M or something else?
Can you get the computer to boot up at all? This is really quite unusual. None of the programs run should have caused this. Windows Defender should also be turned off during these clean ups as it also can interfere. Using msconfig was ok, just not the recommended way to turn off TeaTimer. Did all this occur immediately AFTER doing that or before?

0

It happened after I posted the last log after I uninstalled Malwarebytes in getting ready to run the program in Normal mode. It's almost like I started from the beginning!

I'm at advanced boot options now...Safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompts, etc.

What happens if I go to "last known good configuration"?

Well, I don't know...at this point...you might try it. If that won't work then go back to safe mode and begin again...sorry.
