Some Things To Do...
First, which antivirus program are you using? EXACTLY which trojans and worms are being identified? The "specifics" would sure help...The more information you give us, the better informed our answer will be.
Next, if you are able to get on line at all, please click on either of the links below and run the free scans they provide:
Housecall Online Scanner
Panda Online Scanner
Next, on another "clean" computer, download the following antispyware and antivirus programs, burn them to a CD, then transfer and install them on your infected computer.. Update them from the internet if at all possible after they're installed.
McAfee Stinger Standalone Virus Scanner
Type of antivirus and trojans and worms, etc....
We have the The Shield Antivirus. Well when I looked again, we not only have trojans and worms, but hijackers, adware, and data miners. There are 16 total. The ones that I have and can identify are:
appid\iebhos.dll (a few iebhos.dll things)
some Spyware Disinfection
I have found some of the files and deleted them but they keep coming back when I restart the computer. We have xoftspy to scan the viruses and they keep coming back after I have restarted the computer.
I downloaded the sites that you sent me on a CD but can't update them due to not being able to get on the computer.
I hope that helps! Thank you for helping me!!
(NT) Let Us Know How It Goes...
This one won't need to be updated. It's a start, but it won't get everything.
Download E2TakeOut by RubbeR DuckY from here:
Extract the file to your Desktop.
Double click E2TakeOut.exe.
Click the Begin Removal button.
Wait until the program is finished scanning.
Once done, it will produce a popup stating that the infection has been found and you need to reboot you computer.
To complete the removal, reboot your computer.
(NT) E2TakeOut removes the E2Give and PTech malware
Can't get E2TakeOut to work
I downloaded this software and it still isn't getting rid of it, in fact, I think it added more. My computer is working better though which is very good although I cannot get rid of some of these things. Two things that Spybot S&D is Command services: Hkey_? I am actually at work and left the file name at home. Any other ideas?
And Did You Run ALL Scans In Safe Mode??
Many types of spyware/viruses/trojans must be cleaned while in Safe Mode:
How To Start In 'Safe Mode'
Hope this helps.
Everyone but the E2Takeout
So do I need to do that one in Safe Mode?
This One Tool Does Not Get Everything
''I downloaded this software and it still isn't getting rid of it, in fact, I think it added more.''
I doubt that this tool added any infections. If anything was added, it was a result of the problems that you have not cleaned yet.
As I mentioned in my post above, it won't fix all of the malware, but it will fix some -- only the E2G and Prutect since they are usually bundled together.
Please run your other scans in Safe Mode as Grif suggested.
Then let us know which files your scanners are still finding, but cannot clean.
Ok, well the 2 that won't remove are in the Command services which are:
Maybe those are causing the E2Gives to not go away even with the E2Takeout?
A Report On Those 'Command Services'
Sounds Like A Registry Edit Is In Order But......you still haven't given us the EXACT and correct registry entries that need to be deleted by Spybot..
The registry paths that you are referring to will be:
See the link below and follow the procedures to clean out that registry issue...:
Hope this helps.
Maybe I don't understand
Those two command service entries were exact. I wrote them down straight from the computer. Maybe I didn't get them all? I'll try the link and let you know... Thanks
I think I really messed up...
I went in and followed the directions but I think I deleted things I wasn't supposed to because now it says that application terminated and I can't even get into regedit anymore. I thought that a registry key was bad so I needed to get rid of it!! Oh gosh...
Are you saying that e2g is still showing up?
Which tools did you run in Safe Mode and in what sequence?
tools I ran
I ran in this order in Safe Mode:
And yes the E2Give files are still coming up. I just ran the Spybot again and the xoftspy and they come up with those. But the spybot removes it but then I run it again and it comes back. They don't seem to STAY away!
I completely messed up!
I can't even pull up my task manager anymore because I must have erased something in my registry....is there anyway I can bring it back?
Have you tried clicking start, run, and typing taskmgr.exe
into the run box and hitting enter.
Try System Restore...
Click on Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore. When the System Restore window opens, select "Restore my computer back to an earlier time", then click on "Next". When the next "Calendar" window loads, select a "bold" date, prefereably yesterday, then click on "Next" and follow the prompts to restore the computer and it's registry back to yesterday..
In the future, when making registry changes, ALWAYS make a backup of the registry first.
Hope this helps.
Yes. There is a solution
Install OpenBSD or DragonflyBSD on your computer. Get rid of windows.
I had keylogger & backdoor programs & only 1 program worked
I had 2 very high risk programs on my PC: a keylogger and a remote backdoor. I tried all the programs that have been suggested plus many more. I went to the TechRepublic.com.com (yes, that's the correct address) and it was suggested to me to try Spyware Doctor downloadable from www.pctools.com. I was told if Spyware Doctor didn't find anything then my PC was clean. So I downloaded, installed and ran a full system scan on all my drives through all my files (that's important.) Be very thorough in your scan. Scan files, registry, everything. And after you've quarantined files and/or removed files and you're sure your PC is back to where it's supposed to be, set a restore point.
What did I have to lose if I tried it? Some time. Well, I'd already wasted a lot of that. So, why not? Well, I have now lost the keylogger, the remote backdoor, plus several medium risk items that weren't detected by other programs.
I want you and anyone else to know that I don't have any stock in Spyware Doctor so this is not an advertisement. But I share this info with everyone I know who is having a problem. I'd want someone to do this for me (like this one very kind gentleman did with me.) My philosophy is, if I finally find something that works and I know someone else is having a similar problem, then I share with them my experience. Then I leave it up to that person to do with my info what they will.
So, let me know if you try it and what you experience. I'd be interested to know if it works for you.
