windows explorer fake security virus

 

i'm pretty sure i have a virus.  it has hidden my files and also it has dissassociated .exe files.   like when i would try to run my windows media player i couldn't.  i have had to use the system restore frequently.  but it even tries to keep me from using this.  it also has a tendency to even not let me access the web (yahoo) because it says something to the effect that this site could place your computer at risk.  this is a pretty bad virus i've been told.  and not easily found and eliminated.  but i thought i would try this fourm before i have to wipe the hard drive and try to re-install everything.  that would be a BIG hassle. when it happens it uses that legitimate-looking windows explorer shield looking thing.  then it starts trying to do all these scans and wants you to download some kind of security software or something.  anyway, it's all bogus and it's driving me nuts.  i sure hope you can help me isolate and eliminate it.  i have no idea where it might be hiding but like i say i've heard it's a pretty tricky/difficult  one to deal with.  but if you could give it a shot i'de sure appreciate!

thank you for any help you might be able to render.

Re: windows explorer fake security virus

Hello xttt and welcome to the Forums,

My name is George and I will be assisting you with your problem. Please be patient while I determine my first set of instructions.

Please follow all my instructions carefully in the order that I give them.

Please give a VERY clear description of the problem you are having. The more detailed, the quicker we will be able to work through the problem together.

Do not install any updates until I tell you to do so. Updating an infected computer can have disastrous effects.

Do not attempt any other fixes than what I give you here. Using other tools might interfere with the cleaning process. It may also damage your computer.

Either print or save to Notepad all the instructions that I give you. If there is anything you are unsure of or any instructions you feel lack clarity, please do not hesitate to ask.

Some of the logs I may ask for are very long and complex. As is analysing these logs. My responses to you may take longer than you would expect. I assure you that I will work through your problem and a solution as quick as I can.

I am currently an advanced trainee in Malware removal at SpywareHammer Academy. My posts have to be approved by a Mentor before posting, so my responses may take longer than expected; all I ask is that you please be patient.

Re: windows explorer fake security virus

Hi xttt,

Can you please tell me if the fake Anti-virus application has a name. Something like" Vista total 2011" etc. I'd like you to follow the instructions below carefully please.

Step 1
Unhide

download the following program to your desktop:

Unhide Tool

Once the program has been downloaded, double-click on the Unhide.exe icon on your desktop

and allow the program to run. This program will remove the +H, or hidden, attribute from all

the files on your hard drives. If there are any files that were purposely hidden by you, you

will need to hide them again after this tool is run.
Please be patient as this may take several minutes to run, it will scan and fix all Hard

drives on your system. You will see a new window with the drive being processed, typically

C:\ as below:

unhide-1.jpg

Changing as the next drive is processed as below:

unhide2-1.jpg

You will get a success alert at the end.

Unhide3.jpg

Re-boot and see if your files are present.

Step 2
RKill

Rkill by Grinler

Please download Rkill and save to your Desktop.

  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use Link 1 from the following list and so on in sequential order until one runs successfully.

Link 1

 

Link 2

Link 3

Link 4

It is very important you do not REBOOT the computer after running this tool. It will render the process useless!

Step 3
Run Malwarebytes

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
    If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

 

 

Step 4
DDS

We need to see some additional information about what is happening in your machine.


Please perform the following scan:

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
    • DDS.com
    • DDS.scr
    • DDS.pif

       

       

    • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
    • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool.
    • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs
      1. DDS.txt
      2. Attach.txt
    • Save both reports to your desktop.
    • The instructions here ask you to attach the Attach.txt.
      DDS.jpg

    • Instead of attaching, please copy/paste both logs into your next reply.

       

      Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.
      After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection.
      Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.
      Information on A/V control here

Re: windows explorer fake security virus

 

hi GAHIXON1,

below is what i think i have: 

On visiting a infected Website, this rogue uses a variety of animated images to simulate an online scan that fraudulently claims to find many non-existent malware on the victims system. The purported scan runs even if the user clicks the cancel button. The scareware starts downloading in the background irrespective of where you click on the fake “Windows Security Alert” popup. In Windows Explorer 8, the tab re-spawns even if its closed.

 This installer (setup.exe) is fairly new as only six antivirus engines detect this as malware at the time of this writing. It installs a well disguised, fake Windows Security Center , where all the links goad the victim to register the software.

11 Fake Windows Security Center Analysis and Removal

 

i ran the unhide tool and that has unhidden all my files!  thank you sooo much!!  that worked a LOT better than going into to properties and unhiding each file individually.  thanks again!!!

okay let me see if i can get the rest of this done.  i've noticed when i've run mbam that it takes quite awhile.  so i appreciate your patience.

Re: windows explorer fake security virus

hi GAHIXON1,

whenever i try to save rkill to my desktop i get the following message:

Error copying file or folder:

Cannot copy iExplore[1]: Access is denied

Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

Re: windows explorer fake security virus

Hi xttt,

Did you try a different link for Rkill. In my previous post there was four options. I'm glad we've started to make some progress.

One of the most significant issues I can see with your logs is that you have multiple AV's running. This is not good practice at all. An Anti-virus integates it-self into the internal workings of your computer. If you have two anti-virus's running simultaneously they are competing for the same job. This causes major conflicts as both anti-virus's attempt the same tasks.

My advice to you is that you choose one AV you like, and uninstall the other. Depending on which AV you choose to delete these two tools will help remove any left-overs.

AVG Removal

Mcafee Removal

As follows please.

Step 1
ComboFix

We will begin with ComboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:

* Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
* When finished, it will produce a logfile located at C:\ComboFix.txt.
* Post the contents of that log in your next reply with a new DDS log.

Note: ComboFix will open a window which will detail its progress. It may take several minutes to complete. Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it is running. That may cause your system to stall/hang.

*Note: Combofix is an extremely powerful tool and should not be used unsupervised. If used inappropriately it can cause irreparable damage to your computer.*

In your next reply:

Rkill.txt (If it runs)

 

Combofix.txt
