    Nasty virus. even on Safe mode I can't install any anti virus. It has blocked Avast in my PC.
    Im not a computer expert and dont know how to resolve this.
    Nothing will work from the computer so I am using my laptop to create Rescue disks and try to scan with them but nothing worked so far.
    Trend Micro, EsEt. didnt detected anything. Bit Defender detected the following but couldn't clean it.

    First of all, don't do anything. Apparently you have another computer so you are able to come in the form.
    What you need to do is to prepare a rescue CD using your working computer. You're going to download the ISO of a program that can check for viruses without having the operating system up and running These programs  are made by different companies. One of these is made by a company called AVIRA. You can download the ISO file off of their website and burn it onto using one of the common method used for duplicating an ISO file.
    Next step is to set up your trouble machine so that it will boot from the CD instead of the hard drive. This varies from one computer to the next, so I'm not able to give you the detailed step-by-step instructions on how it works on your computer. On the computers I have, which are made by Dell, I have to hit the F 12 key and then a program comes up then ask me what to and I select my CD-ROM player.
    Was the program boots up and what kind of test would like to do and then it will begin scan of your computer and will quarantine whenever it finds. In some cases it may be necessary to do some other kind of work on the computer
    After the VirusScan has been completed.
    Check this out:
    https://www.avira.com/en/download/product/avira-rescue-system
    Read over over the instructions there.
    Let me know if you can  do that.  :) :'(

        Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

        1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
        2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
        3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
        4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
        5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
        6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
        7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

        If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.

            the code is running for almost 1 hour now. It says "Scanning in progress"
            Is this normal? Should it take that long? ::)

                  As I mentioned before I am using my laptop to do all downloads and communicate with you guys.
                  The PC wont run any exe files.
                  It is helpless to download programs to its desktop because it will be blocked.
                  Unless I can create a CD with any antimalware program from my Laptop and run it on the PC nothing else will work.
                  Maybe Im not being clear about that. My appologies.

                  Btw I tried Rkill before because it uses IExplorer name and it didn't work either.

                  But you told me you ran Avira on your desktop.That is why I gave you the other scans to run. Burn them to a CD or USB stick and try running them from there.

                    I ran Avira from a cd.
                    There is an ISO file available to download from their website.

                    AdwCleaner doesn't offer that option;
                    I don't know how to create a rescue CD from ADWCleaner.
                    Same for Malwarebytes

                    Every time I try to run any of those exe I get the message: "The requested resource is in use"

                    I was able to create the following rescue cd's and run them (none resolved the problem)
                    - F.Secure
                    - Bit Defender

                    Please help! Don't know what else to do.

                      what is MBAM?

                      I tried to download AdwCleaner exe (it is a ZIP file) and extract to a folder and then burn the cd with those files.
                      It didn't work.

                      Do you mind giving step by step tutorial on how to do this?

                        This is taking forever for me to figure out and I just wasn't sure if there was a limit to the posts.
                        I've disconnected the PC from the internet because Im not sure what the malware is doing at this point.
                        But since that is my main work computer Im still using it offline.
                        Thank you

                        No, there is no limit on posts. MBAM is MalwareBytes Antimalware. You need to make a data disc with those two program on the disk. Pop it in your computer and try running each program from the disc.
                        Do you have the OS disk or is there a Recovery on a separate partition of your hard drive?

                          Sorry I don't have the OS disk and there's no recovery on a separate partition of my hard drive.
                          I have created a few bootable Rescue CDs using my other computer (Laptop) after all this happened just in case - the ones I mentioned before. But I don''t think it is the same you talking about right?
                          Do i need the OS disk or Recovery partition for this new AdwCleaner cd to work?

                          No, I just wanted to know if you had the OS in case we can't get the computer to work. Putting those programs on a CD is not the same as making a rescue disk. You will need to create a data disc and put those two programs on them. If done correctly, the programs will run off the disk.

                            I've searched online for tutorials on how to create a data disk with those programs and I couldn't find anything helpful.
                            Can you point me to a link where I can find it?

                              My problem is I only have the .exe file downloaded from the websites.
                              If I click that file it will prompt to install in the computer
                              Did you mean create a data CD burning the adwcleaner.exe (and the others, mbam-setup.exe etc) to a CD?
                              Then insert the CD into the infected computer and run from there?
                              If I do that will it not prompt to install those programs in the affected computer?
                              Because if that's what is going to happen, the infected computer will probably block the .exe file from running.

                              Forgive the ignorance. Although Im a lil embarrassed asking. Honest questions tho.

                              Yes, create a data disk just as you would a music CD. If you transfer the programs to your infected computer they may not run but they will run from the data disk.

                                I did that. Created a data CD with all 4 programs you recommended in it (AdwCleaner,  MalwareBytes, Junk Removal Tool and Security Check)
                                None of them ran.
                                AdwCleaner resulted a msg: Windows cannot find C:\Users\Owner\Downloads\adwcleaner.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and try again.

                                For The other programs I got the same msg. "the requested resource is in use"

                                Could it be because I am downloading and burning the disk from a different computer?

                                No, I've done that dozens of times. Are you sure you're creating a data disk. When you put the disk in the drive you should be able to see all the programs on the disk. Then, it's simply a matter of double-clicking on each program to run it. What program are you using to burn the disk?

                                It sounds like you may have burned shortcuts onto the disc, rather than the files themselves.

                                  Yes BC is correct. I did burn a shortcut for ADWCleaner but not for the other programs (however none of them ran)
                                  I was able to save ADW Cleaner to a USB and run as Administrator.
                                  I am attaching pictures of the process.
                                  After the whole process completed the computer was restarted.
                                  I tried to run ADWCleaner a second time and it didn't run.

                                  Screen shots attached for ADWCleaner process and final report until it prompted to restart (which I did)


                                  I am sending multiple messages to explain what is happening and send screen shots of each process.

                                      Computer restarted and I tried to run ADWCleaner one more time and it didn't run this time.
                                      I got the screen message attached here (Microsoft Security Essentials - This app detected and suspended a potential threat. Click Clean PC to remove this threat)

                                      Perhaps I shouldn't let it run, but since ADWCleaner wasn't responding anymore I ran it.

                                        Ok. I was able to run ADWCleaner again, after deleting all tracks left from the previous scanning/cleaning process as if it was the first time.
                                        I ran it 3 times (from CD and from USB flash drive), every time it found 11 threats but didn't clean it. Same final reports.
                                        ADWCleaner doesn't seem to be able to clean it.

                                        What should I do next?

                                        Let me know if I should send more screen shots/reports for your information

                                                for new programs that I try to install
                                                It wont run any new antivirus, malware or any new program
                                                message I am getting is attached picture here

                                                Also tried to run System Restore and it wont run.

                                                Pre Existing programs seem to be running fine

                                                For safety I have disconnected the computer from the internet (I don't know what kind of malware it is)

                                                        I did that but it wont clean the virus
                                                        It will show a message that the computer is clean but a few min later the virus will show up again.
                                                        Just like in the pictures I posted before.
                                                        And the cicle is endless.
                                                        It cant clean the virus

                                                        Please download Farbar Service Scanner to the desktop and run it on the computer with the issue.
                                                        Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

                                                        Make sure FRST is run under administrator privileges.
                                                        Make sure that the Whitelist section is checked.Otherwise, the log will be very long.
                                                        You Security programs may prevent the tool from running. If this happens, disable the security program until the scan is completed.
                                                        • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

                                                        • Press "Scan".





                                                        • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
                                                        • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.
                                                        • The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.

                                                          I was able to run ADW Cleaner from a CD and this is the screen shot of the result'
                                                          It has done the same thing before but it wont clean it.
