So I was stupid and ended up thinking a fake pop up for a malware trojan was from my AVG antivirus, I should have known better. It restarted my computer and now it's pretty crazy.

My programs show up, as well as my documents, but it's like nothing is actually installed. Everytime I attempt to open something, I get a pop up telling me, in one way or another, that the program is either not recognized or not valid on my computer. The only program that works is internet explorer, and even that gives me a pop up asking me what program I want it to run on. I've learned that it doesn't need that question answered to run, though.

It turned Windows Defender off, which I somehow managed to turn back on and run a scan with, only to have it run into an error and shut down about halfway through. AVG isn't recognized at all, and while I can search for it in my programs, it says it doesn't exist. I tried downloading two separate things from microsoft (a free full scan and malware I think) only to have them not be able to run.

Finally, I tried to get Norton Anti-Virus on my computer, after having to save the installer to run the program, because it gives me that option everytime I try to do something with a document, and it made it as far as installation before it shut down.

I went into safe mode but it didn't allow me to access the Vista System Restore. Not sure what to do, as these problems occur even in safe mode. I can't even turn it off regularly, as the exclamation point is on the power icon, meaning that it has something it wants to "update" my computer with. I have a feeling that's just going to spread it.

I honestly have no idea about computers so anything is helpful. I'm on a different computer at the moment, turned my laptop off. Afraid to turn it on again until something can actually be done about it.

Sounds like quite a mess!

-- Do you have a flash drive?
-- Are you able to run the MBA-M step in the linky below? What about DDS and posting that scanlog?

-- Do you have your Windows Vista disk?



Edited by PhilliePhan: added a question


I have downloaded MBA-M successfully and am running the scan, will attempt DDS after the scan is done.

I do have a flash drive and I think I have my Vista CD here, but it might actually be back at my college dorm. I'll look for it to be sure.

MBA-M fixed it! It was hijack that infected it. 4 files removed. Restarted it and AVG is turned back on, saying that it also removed two trojans.

Thank-you for your help!

Thank-you for your help!

Glad to hear it! I was hoping you'd be able to get MBAM to run as 64-bit Vista is difficult to work with.

-- Could you post me the logs from AVG and MBAM? Sometimes there are hidden components that do not get removed.
I did not see it in the DDS log.

-- You should update your Java. Use Add/Remove Programs to remove Java(TM) 6 Update 11 and any other old versions.
Then, please go to http://www.java.com/en/ to download and install the latest version of Java. This will help avoid malware such as Vundo that exploit Java.....

Cheers :)

Here's the MBA-M log, I have to look around for the AVG log. I'll change my Java aswell. I also deleted the save points in System Recovery, in case the virus was still in there. Should I run another Virus Scan with AVG to see if anyhting is still on there?

Here is an AVG log of a scan I just ran, I don't have anything from when it removed the trojans. Now what's interesting about this is that the files listed also froze MBA-M when I was running it. What am I supposed to do with them, though, since there is no option to remove them.

Just navigate to those and delete them manually.
I would imagine you could download those drivers from Dell again if you need to install them again.
No worries deleting them from the downloads folder....

I would recommend running a scan with the Kaspersky Online Scanner 7.0 If you are able to do so.
* Note that you may need to temporarily disable your Anti-virus program for the duration of this scan.

-- Accept the agreement and allow the scanner to load and update its definitions. This may take a few minutes.
-- After the program files are downloaded and the anti-virus database is successfully updated, please select the Scan section in the left part of the main program window.
-- Click My Computer to begin a complete scan of your computer, including critical areas.
-- Once the scan has finished, select the Reports section in the left part of the main program window. Click the Save report button in the report viewing window. The Saving window will open.
-- Name the file KAS 1 and choose to save it to the Desktop as a .txt file and then click the Save button.

Please post that for me.

As I mentioned, nothing jumped out at me from DDS log, but I have been so pressed for time, I may have missed it. Let's see what Kaspersky scan shows.

Cheers :)

Happy to help!

-- That log looks good.
You can manually delete the suspicious file or you could run ATF-Cleaner as directed in the linky below (steps 2&6):

Other than that minor annoyance and if you are having no further problems . . . . I think you are good to go.

Cheers :)

Alrighty, file has been deleted! Thank you so much! I was worried I was going to lose the computer in the beginning, but I'm so glad it could be saved with such a simple solution!

Once again I really appreciate you taking time to help me figure this out.

You're welcome!

I recommend keeping MBAM on hand and every week or two updating the definitions and running a scan.

Cheers :)
