greetings!

thank you for everything you have done and recommended to me. the combofix seemed to have worked wonders and i am seriously contemplating un installing norton and going with avira. norton does not suite my fancy anymore with all the bugs it has.

well, i downloaded and installed that firewall. is there any more recommendations or fixes you think would be helpful?

here is a fresh HJT log:

Hi,

That O20 is from Avast.  It should be there.  Have you run the Norton Removal Tool?  There are still parts of Norton running, and that will conflict with Comodo (Avast).  If so, please run it again; if not, you need to run it or Comodo won't function properly.

Do not install Online Armor - you installed the version of Comodo (Avast) which inludes a firewall, so Online Armor isn't needed.  If you have installed Online Armor, you should uninstall it.

Please post a fresh HJT log after doing these things so I can check that your installs/uninstalls all went properly.  If necessary, I can remove any remaining parts of Norton using ComboFix.  After that I will have some additional suggestions for you.

Hi,

Why did you install AVG?????  You CANNOT run two anti-virus packages or two firewalls because none of them will work.  You must uninstall either Comodo or AVG.

hello,

i just installed comodo's firewall. i did not install its anitvirus as there is an option during installation to forgo the anti-virus and just install a firewall. i am not liking AVG at this point and i am contemplating installing avast. will there be a conflict with comodo's fire wall and avast's anti-virus program?

are there any good uninstalling software out there that will remove all components and files? currently i am using revo-uninstall, however when finished i am still finding remnants and left over files that i delete manually... just curious, because the norton tool deleted everything and i am wondering if there was a product that could do the same. or maybe i am barking up the wrong tree as manual deletion is the only option... could combofix possibly aid in this?

thank you!

Hi,

Avast is the Comodo AntiVirus.  You need to uninstall AVG using this tool:

http://www.avg.com/download-tools

Then reboot and run the Comodo installer again and ask that the anti-virus be installed.  After post a HJT log so I can make sure everything went properly.

Uninstallers.  Don't use ComboFix unless you are being helped by someone trained in its use.  It is a very powerful tool.  The best way to uninstall without getting into dangerous territory is to use the uninstaller for the software (in the Add/Remove Programs CP), then reboot.  You can then look for left over folders in either C:\Program Files or c:\Documents and Settings and safely delete them.  Finally, you can use CCleaner from here:

http://www.ccleaner.com/

And use the Issues section to safely clean your registry of left over entries.  It is the only registry cleaner that I recommend that is safe for a novice to use.

hello,

ok, thank you for the avg tool to uninstall. i have a question. i do not believe that comodo is avast, it is its own company from what i have been researching. so, can i keep comodo's fire wall and install avast? does avast have a firewall? the reason i chose comodo's fire wall is because of its favorable reviews in that area, however their anti-virus is not up to par, poor detection. i do not wish to use comodo's anti-virus.

thank you for the ccleanup link. i have heard good things about that software. i am currently using AML registry cleaner. i will go ahead and uninstall AVG and post a fresh HJT log.

Hi,

We can use HJT to get rid of the three leftover keys.  Run HijackThis again, but this time choose Do a system scan only, that is the second option from the top in the HijackThis What would you like to do choices.  After HijackThis completes the system scan, check the box immediately to the left of the following item(s):

O2 - BHO: WormRadar.com IESiteBlocker.NavFilter - {3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0} - (no file)
O18 - Protocol: linkscanner - {F274614C-63F8-47D5-A4D1-FBDDE494F8D1} - (no file)
O20 - Winlogon Notify: avgrsstarter - avgrsstx.dll (file missing)


Please be very careful, do NOT check any other boxes.

Next, click on Fix checked on the bottom left side of the HijackThis screen.

Next, reboot.  Rerun HJT and they should all be gone.

    Hi,

    That looks good.  Before we finish, we need to delete the tools we used, and all the files/folders they quarantined.

    Please download OTCleanIt from one of the following mirrors and save it to your desktop:
  • Double click the icon.
  • Click the large "Cleanup" button.
  • A list of tool components used in the Cleanup of malware will be downloaded.
  • Click Yes to begin the Cleanup process and remove these components, including this application.
  • You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.
  • Make sure you have an Internet Connection.
  • If you have a firewall that throws out a message that OTMI3 is attempting to contact the Internet that it should be allowed.
  • You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.

Here are some tips for keeping safe on the Internet.

1.  Always use your AntiVirus and Firewall software.  Update your AntiVirus virus definitions at least once a day.  Scan with it at least once every 2 days.  Check for updates to your Firewall weekly.

2.  Keep using MBAM.  Update the definitions daily and do a quick scan at least once every 2 days.  The free version does not have any real time protection.  If you want extra security, the paid version offers real time protection plus automatic definition updates.

3.  Download and use SpywareBlaster from Javacool. 

4.  Download and use Spybot S&D.  Do not install or use the TeaTimer feature, it can conflict with other security software. 

5.  Use an alternative browser rather than IE.  Two excellent and well tested free ones are Firefox and Opera.  If you use Firefox, make sure to install the AdBlock Plus and NoScript extensions.    WOT ("Web of Trust") is another site evaluation program similar to SiteSdvisor, so it is a good second opinion as to the safety of sites you may visit.  You will find these extensions and hundreds more on the Firefox site.

6.  Download and use McAfee SiteAdvisor.  SiteAdvisor does not work with Opera. 

7.  Always keep your Java version up to date.  Check regularly for updates to Java HERE.

8.  Regularly check the Calendar of Updates for updates to your security software. 

9.  Please read and follow the recommendations in this article.  So how did I get infected in the first place?

10.  Fortunately, not all computer slowdowns and other problems are the result of malware.  Defragmenting, cleaning browser caches, emptying temp folders and other procedures can often speed performance dramatically.  An excellent guide and some additional tools to accomplish these tasks can be found at Slow Computer May Not Be Malware Related.

11.  Always do backups.  For more information on designing a good backup strategy for your system, please see this LINK.

12.  Never use P2P programs or download any software or other files from P2P.  Most of those files are hopelessly infected with malware, are intended to do harm, and will kill your system.  Continuing to use P2P for any purpose in today's environment is a major mistake.

Following these recommendations will help to prevent future malware infestations, and keep your system running in good shape.
