    everything on my desktop disappears
    « on: February 20, 2008, 02:39:15 PM »
    When I log onto the internet, its fine for a while but soon everyhing goes away on my desk top. All my icons and the bottom task bar. However all the windows or programs that I was using stay but just kind of float there as if I downsized the window and instead of going into the task bar on the bottom just kind of sits on top of it even though its not there.This doesnt happen all the time. But a few times a little window poped up saying that "One or more files appear to be invalid. This is caused by corrupted installation. Please download and install limewire again" Then below that there is some report that its letting me copy. This may not have anything to do with it I am just guessing. Earlier I had downloaded a program on Limewire and this started to happen, yes I know I shouldn't just download random things on Limewire but this is kind of bothering me. I am just guessing that it is a virus, because I don't want to do another system restore. Any help would be great

    Go to the link below and scroll down to the CCleaner and Hijackthis instructions. Run CCleaner and then post the HJT log back here.

      Alright like I was saying before. After a bit everything on my desk top would disappear. Sometimes before it happens a window keeps appearing saying "One or more necessary files may be invalid Generally cause by a corruption during installation, and to download limewire again" When I close it off after a minute all the stuff would disappear. Now earlier it popped up and nothing happened but the window itself is pretty annoying and here is my HJT log

      First, uninstall either McAfee AntiSpyware or the Symantec/Norton. Having two antivirus or firewalls is never suggested as it can cause system conflicts, slowdowns and crashes.

      There is alot of malware on the PC

      ----------

      Download SDFix.exe and save it to your Desktop.

      Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
      (Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

      Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:

      • Restart your computer
      • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
      • Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
      • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
      • Choose your usual account.
      • Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
      • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
      • It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
      • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
      • When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
      • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
        (Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard).
      • Finally add the contents of the Report.txt in your next post.
      ----------

      Please download Combofix by sUBs from one of the below links.
      (Try all three if necessary)Important! Combofix.exe MUST be saved to and ran from the Desktop.
      • Close any open Web browsers. (Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc) before starting Combofix.
      • Important! Temporarily disable your antivirus, script blocking and any antispyware real time protection before performing a scan.
        • Click this link to see a list of security programs that should be disabled and how to disable them.
        • If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      • Warning: Combofix disconnects your computer from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before Combofix completes its run.
      • Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.

          • From the keyboard select 1 and press Enter[/COLOR]
          • When finished, it will produce a log for you.
          • Post that log in your next reply.
          Warning: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall
          • If Combofix runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your computer.
          • Important: Remember to re-enable your antivirus and antispyware before reconnecting to the Internet.
          ----------

          Next post add
          SDFix log
          Combofix log

          Keep following the instructions and we'll get you fixed up...
          It takes more than a few steps most times. Be patient and do what's required.

                • Extract avenger.exe from the Zip file and save it to your desktop
                • Run avenger.exe by double-clicking on it.
                • Check the Input script manually box.
                • Click on the Magnifying Glass Icon which will open a new window titled View/edit script
                • Copy everything in the Quote box below, and paste it in the box that opens:
                Drivers to unload:

                Code: [Select]
                Folders to delete:
                C:\WINDOWS\ssqnmmnm
                C:\WINDOWS\system32\ssqnmmnm

                Files to delete:

                HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run\pmkhghijgd

                HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\contro l\lsa

                Note: the above instructions were created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, DO NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system
                • Now click the 'Done' button.
                • Click on the Green Light and OK the prompt.
                • You will be prompted to restart, click OK at the prompt and your PC should reboot, if not, reboot it yourself.
                • A log file from Avenger will be produced at C:\avenger.txt
                The Avenger will automatically do the following:
                • It will Restart your computer. (In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
                • On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
                • After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger's actions.
                • This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
                • The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.
                • Please attach the C:\avenger.txt in your next post.
                .
                ----------

                Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
                • Under the Hidden files and folders heading:
                • Select Show hidden files and folders.
                • Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
                • Also, make sure there is no checkmark beside Hide file extensions for known file types.
                • Click OK
                .
                Boot into safe mode and use Windows Explorer to delete:

                j?vaw.exe found in:

                C:\WINDOWS\system32\j?vaw.exe <--- be careful with this, the ? can be any number of characters. Also, java.exe and javaw.exe are valid files which you do not want to delete. They are very small (about 25 to 30 Kbytes). The bad file will probably be much larger (like 200 to 400 Kbytes).

                If you get an error when deleting a file. Right click on the file and check to see if the read only attribute is checked. If it is, uncheck it and try again. Other wise open Task Manager and kill the process if running then delete the file.

                Run CCleaner after deleting the file.

                ----------

                  I think there may be something wrong with that first link, it takes me to one of those "this page cannot be displayed" sites

                    When I open the avenger, all I really get is a big text box, a few buttons for loading scripts, an execute button and a few other things. Do I just copy the code into the text box and hit execute?

                    The Avenger has recently updated and I need to change my instructions. Once open paste everything in the Input script Here box and click Execute.
