I cannot download anti-virus or anti-malware programs...(logs included)

Q: I cannot download anti-virus or anti-malware programs...(logs included)

My subscription for Macafee ran out and I never got around to downloading AVG or some other antivirus freeware on my netbook. I experienced some obvious signs of a virus/malware not long after (I would do a google search on Chrome and would get redirected to some very odd sites when I clicked on something safe-looking). So I attempted to download AVG and others with no luck. I then restored my system to an earlier date hoping this would be good enough to remove whatever virus/malware was affecting it. No such luck as I am still unable to download said freeware (although now I am able to surf the net with no issues). So, I happened across your lovely website and am crossing my fingers that you may be able to save the day!

Thanks so much for your time!

Preferred Solution: I cannot download anti-virus or anti-malware programs...(logs included)

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: I cannot download anti-virus or anti-malware programs...(logs included)

I solved it.

Used ninite.com in safe mode to download AVG and Spybot. Rebooted. Ran both of them. Still couldn't download Malwarebytes. Ran online scanner from Microsoft. Rebooted. Was able to install Malwarebytes. Ran it. System is clean now.

Good morning everyone,
Frequent visitor, first time poster of this forum. I want to thank anyone in advance for committing any amount of time to my problem. I'm hoping someone has some experience with this issue. Allow me to explain:

Hi everyone,

I have a friend wanting me to help with her computer. She runs an old Windows 98 machine that has become infested with spyware and viruses.

Webpages keep being redirected to bizrate and bizoffers and any attempt to download software such as Ad-Aware or Spybot are being denied by Bad Gateway errors.

She can't download Hijack This or do any online virus scans because she's blocked from doing so by the spyware.

Would installing the MVPS Hosts file prevent the spyware from blocking access to these sites so that we can help her?

Please help.

Thanks.

A:Can't download anti-spyware programs or anti-virus programs

It would definately be a start. Also try this:

Right click on this link http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/DelO15Domains.inf and choose Save As. Save it to your desktop. Right click on that file and choose Install. It will run immediately (you won't be able to see anything happen). You may delete it afterwards. NOTE: This script will delete any sites you may have added to the Trusted Sites. So if you want them back, you have to add them back to the Trusted Sites again.

Next thing to try, is go into Add/Remove and check for the following programs. If you struggle removing, you can reboot to Safe Mode and try again.

Hello everyone,
My name is Michael,but feel free to use my screen name as well. I've come here looking for help to get rid of a virus(the research that I've done).
I am not real computer savy,but I do have some abilities. I have Windows Xp Home Edition. I use AVG Free Anti Spy ware that updates automatically,daily. Never had a problem and have used AVG for years.
To start off,(Thursday,Feb.5th),I was getting all the symptoms pop ups,trying to fool the user of a potential/threatening virus. I knew better from the google research,that any of it was true. My computer never seemed slow. I always had multiple browser windows open and going. Had no problems with my Winamp Media Player going all at the same time. Then ,BLAM...pop ups started taking over. Sometimes frequently. Sometimes it would take almost 10 minutes before one came up again. I had the little red x down in the right corner and a balloon coming on,but through some c drive folder searching. I was able to locate them.
I then opened control panel,add remove...found some things on the list that didnt belong and I went through the routine uninstall process and restarted my compter when prompted too. Got rid of the x,balloon and "some" pop ups.
I am getting alerts from my AVG when these pop ups show themselves. Here are a few of the alert messages. Sorry,I dont know how to screen save such images. I am typing out EXACTLY AS THEY READ. The number is just to show amount of alerts I get. These are all AV... Read more

And as anyone else i wanna be safe in this era of cyber-crime. So basically i know whats a anti-virus and a anti-spyware and that they can run together.

Could you suggest some good+free of those 3? Sorry for my bad English and being such a noob

A:Anti-malware, Anti-virus, Anti-spyware

Florin, you might take interest in this thread, though it may be quite a bit of reading: What's the Best Anti-virus?

It is there that they discuss all kinds of different antiviruses and coupled security software. I personally only use Microsoft Security Essentials, but I have used it along with Malwarebytes for added security in the past.

Basically, you could have your system completely locked down with lots of extra security, but in some cases it becomes a hassle because of how much your computer becomes protected and overly secured. If you prefer a speedy computer over security, generally you use less security software, but if it is the other way around, you will want beefier security software which may slow things down slightly. That link I've provided will have most everything you will need.

Hi Guys:

I'm new to this forum - my name is Chris. Howdy.

Here is an outline of my situation -

I use a Windows XP operating system.

Can't use system restore.

Can't download updates for Avira, Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware - they either "time out" or won't complete.

When using Google and Yahoo! search, my browser gets hijacked and is sent to various advertisements that have nothing to do with the search query.

Computer is running slower than slow. Browser window takes forever to pop up.
I use Firefox as my browser.

I tried to reinstall my Windows XP, but when I opened the disk, I was informed that I needed the serial number for my copy of XP (which conveniently for Microsoft, was NOT in the sealed disk envelope). So I can't reinstall Windows XP because I don't have that serial number.

I've tried about everything I can think of doing. Have downloaded several other different malware/spyware tools - none of which I can operate (they won't work).

I find these recent problems I am facing very odd, because I have never had problems in the last four years that I've had this computer - all the problems started when I downloaded Avira, Malwarebyetes and SUPERAntiSpyware. I downloaded those programs on the advice of an online computer safety forum. A friend of mine had problems with his computer, so I did some research and suggested that he download all of those programs. Then, I decided, "What the heck," and downlo... Read more

If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above.

Spyware Terminator.-- Web Security Guard is included in the download but not required. After installation you will be prompted to Enable Web Security Guard Toolbar. This browser add-on (similar to Site Advisor) is enabled by default so be sure to uncheck the box if you do not want it installed. If you install WSG by mistake, it can easily be removed later via Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.-- If you already have an anti-virus application, there is no need to install the optional Clam AntiVirus integration. ClamAV does not have a real time scanning engine but you can integrate it into ST's Realtime Shield to include virus scanning support.However, you can overkill your system with resource heavy security programs that will drain your resources and slow down performance. Sometimes you just have to experiment to get the right combo for your particular system as there is no universal solution that works for everyone. mvps.org is no longer recommending Spybot S&D or Ad-Aware due to poor testing results. See here - (scroll down and read under Freeware Antispyware Products) Further, most people don't understand Spybot's TeaTimer or how to use it and that feature can cause more problems than it's worth.While not free, I recommend using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and taking advantage of the Protection Module which uses advanced heuristic scanning technology to monitor your system and provide real-time protection to prevent the installation of most new malware.

SYMPTOMS
1) Internet Explorer and Firefox both crash as soon as I use them. I seemed to have fixed this problem (so far).
2) When I use a search engine and click on a link for a website, I randomly get routed to an alternate website. This most often happens when I am trying to access a site where I can download an anti-virus program or a website that has a web-based scanner. Most other websites are fine (for example, I can click on links to imdb or fandango and they work just fine).
3) I can't download any updates. This includes the automatic updates you get for Windows, as well as updates for anti-virus programs.
4) I was able to eventually download Spybot in Safe Mode, but the program won't run when I click on it. It automatically crashes. Can't update virus definitions as well.
5) I was able to download AVG. Again, can't update definitions. I am however able to run AVG, and it finds a bunch of cookies that were infected (mostly malware that redirects me to random websites) but other than that, it says "No threats found".

My PC slowed to a stop so I rebooted and saw that Antivirus Pro_2010 had installed itself on my PC. All my Anti Virus programs would not start (ie MBAM) so I ended up following forums to end some processes, delete some .dll files that were known to be malicious and rename the .exe's to get Anti Virus programs to run. I installed and used AVG which found a couple things. Then I used ComboFix, and finally I got MBAM to run which found a good 40+ trojans etc. I believe I got the virus off but I tried to restore to before I got the virus but was unable to. I have since run scans with MBAM and SuperAnti-Spyware which have found nothing.

I've looked up this problem in the accompanying (Security Shield) help menu and it wasn't any help....but it basically states no icon = no protection....so what the bejeepers can I do to fix this problem?
 

A:Anti virus/anti spyware programs missing from system tray

Just a quick thought, go to start-up options and see if they are listed as due to run on start-up, if you have no suitable programme to view your start-up programmes go to run and type msconfig and check the start-up tab

Hi BoKay,Try downloading the installation program for either Antivir or Avast to a cd or flash drive using a clean computer and then disconnect your own computer from the internet and install whichever one you chose. (Do NOT download both. They're both good, but you only need one.) Do the same with Malware Bytes. I'll give you the instructions here. Download both installation programs from the clean computer and then take them to the infected computer with your external medium.1) The following antivirus programs are free, light-weight and effective.Using a clean computer download the installation program for one of the following.Avast!

Hi,

I have just spent two nights removing the "Fake System Restore" virus from my girlfriends laptop
by following the guide on this site, so a big thankyou to whoever wrote the guide.

Now I want to make sure her laptop is protected as well as I can with free software.

I have installed; AVAST anti virus, Zone Alarm firewall and MalwareBytes onto the laptop,

A:Which are the best Anti Spyware and Anti Malware programs?

I recommend taking advantage of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Pro) Protection Module in the full version which uses advanced heuristic scanning technology to monitor your system and provide real-time protection to prevent the installation of most new malware. This technology runs at startup where it monitors every process and helps stop malicious processes before they can infect your computer. Keep in mind that this feature does not guarantee something will not slip through as no product can detect and prevent every type of malware. The database that defines the heuristics is updated as often as there is something to add to it. Also keep in mind that Malwarebytes does not act as a real-time protection scanner for every file like an anti-virus program so it is intended to be a supplement, not a substitute. IP Protection (malicious website blocking) is part of the Protection Module and works after it is enabled. When attempting to go to a potential malicious website, Malwarebytes will block the attempt and provide an alert. IP Protection is also designed to block incoming connections it determines to be malicious. Enabling the Protection Module feature feature requires registration and purchase of a license key that includes free lifetime upgrades and support. After activation, Malwarebytes can be set to update itself and schedule scans automatically on a daily basis. The Protection Module is not intrusive as the program utilizes few system resources and should not conflict wi... Read more

Hello everyone.

I have tried my best to remove this virus on my laptop, but no success yet.

Here are all of the things the virus does:

-Prevents access to websites like spybot, instead of letting me see the site, it simply says "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage", and there is a button to click that says "Diagnose Connection Problem" (no connection problem of course)

-When I click links from a google search, they most of the time take me to the wrong webpage and I am forced to copy/paste the original link into the web bar.

-Programs like Combofix, Spybot, and HJT do not work and a box comes up after starting them saying "Combofix has stopped working".

-I tried running the programs in Safe Mode, but no luck there.

If anyone knows a fix please reply.

Thanks,

Sean

I am having an issue with, what I believe is, the google redirect virus or whatever it may be called now. It all started last week when I was working on my accounting homework for school and was working between Microsoft Word 2007 and various websites in IE9 (running Windows 7). I was working on my homework when suddenly all of the windows closed without warning (internet, word, and windows explorer) and my computer restarted. When Windows reloaded, my desktop background had changed to solid black and half of my desktop icons went missing. The more I did to try to fix it, the worse it got and the more icons disappeared. I found a thread on this forum that described the fix and followed it step by step. I downloaded and ran Malwarebytes, the unhide program (i dont recall the proper name but the icon is a white briefcase with a red cross on it), and another program that I renamed to iexplore.com per the instructions. I was able to restore the desktop icons and full functionality of the computer after doing that process. Although I was never able to run TDSSKiller (even with the disguised version) or Kapersky...couldn't even install them.

Now I am living with the issue of the redirected search links. I can get to Google (or any other search engine) and search normally, but when I click the link that I want, it will take me to some other random website having nothing to do with my search (for example, i search for Bleeping Computer and click the link for www.bleepin...

Hello,

I have a problem that is far beyond my limited skills. One of our people has a laptop that has either malware or a virus infecting it. Two symptoms are present: first, when using firefox web pages get redirected to advertising or to unrelated google searches; second, the machine seems more sluggish than usual.

I have tried to download anti-spyware software (e.g. Spy Sweeper, CounterSpy, MalwareBytes, Superantispyware, PC Doctor) and nothing works. In some cases such as Counterspy and PC Doctor, the executable will run but the program will not update (and thus, not allow for a scan). In other cases such as MalwareBytes, the executable simply will not run.

I have run a Trend Micro anti-virus scan. It seems to detect something but it crashes before the scan can complete. The same thing happens with Panda Activescan. Last night, I ran Panda Activescan for over 8 hours. When I woke up, the scan had frozen at the 52% point and had found 1 infected file, which it didn't appear to clean up.

Anyway, I'd really appreciate any help.
Best regards,

The reason they have more anti-virus apps for Android is because the Android platform is more vulnerable to malware. On Android, you are able to download and install a variety of things from unknown sources.
 
For the iPhone, however, anti-virus isn't really needed unless you have jailbroken your device.

Hi and new to the forum . I currently have Norton Security, MBAM Pro, CCLeaner Professional, adwcleaner, and I did have Hitman Pro, for a while several years ago when my computer was hacked.
 
I have had Norton for several years, but I am thinking of switching to Emsisoft and use my Windows 7 Firewall. I use MBAM for live monitoring along with the Norton Security..The adwcleare software I use periodically, or if there is an issue the other programs don't handle. For example when out bound traffic was blocked by MBAM, but it was continously happening, the adwcleaner software found and eliminated the culprit. It was very useful also when my computer was hacked.  I also have the active monitoring turned off on CCleaner.
 
Would also adding Binisoft or Tinnywall add more security to the Windows 7 Firewall, or would it be better to just use the Windows Firewall by itself? I don't really want anything too complicated on the Firewall settings, but just maybe make a few teaks, possibly.  One other thing, would it be good to add WinPatrol Pro?
 
Sorry for a lot of questions, and thanks for any responses as I value your opinions.

I am conducting this poll because A-Squared failed to see this on a scan, but MSE picked it up before it could be downloaded.
So after you take the poll, Post what you used to test it with and results.

Hi and new to the forum . I currently have Norton Security, MBAM Pro, CCLeaner Professional, adwcleaner, and I did have Hitman Pro, for a while several years ago when my computer was hacked.
 
I have had Norton for several years, but I am thinking of switching to Emsisoft and use my Windows 7 Firewall. I use MBAM for live monitoring along with the Norton Security..The adwcleare software I use periodically, or if there is an issue the other programs don't handle. For example when out bound traffic was blocked by MBAM, but it was continously happening, the adwcleaner software found and eliminated the culprit. It was very useful also when my computer was hacked.  I also have the active monitoring turned off on CCleaner.
 
Would also adding Binisoft or Tinnywall add more security to the Windows 7 Firewall, or would it be better to just use the Windows Firewall by itself? I don't really want anything too complicated on the Firewall settings, but just maybe make a few teaks, possibly.  One other thing, would it be good to add WinPatrol Pro?
 
Sorry for a lot of questions, and thanks for any responses as I value your opinions.

A:Is This a Good Anti-Malware and Anti-Virus Protection Program?

Although Norton (Symantec) is as good as any other well known anti-virus program, it it requires numerous services and running processes that consume a lot of system resources and often results in complaints of high CPU usage. Anti-virus software components insert themselves deep into the operating systems core where they install kernel mode drivers that load at boot-up and create files/folders/registry entries in various locations. Further, there have been numerous complaints about lack of sufficient support from the vendor.I have read from other users that Norton has made improvements in newer versions of their software so they are not as resource heavy as past versions...while others still say differently. Those issues plus the cost factor are the primary reason many folks look for a free alternative. IMO, Norton (Symantec) is better utilized in an Enterprise system environment protecting many client computers. With that said, there are a lot of folks who prefer using Norton (especially if it came preinstalled) and there is nothing wrong with staying with a product you are satisfied with.Switching to Emsisoft and using Windows 7 Firewall is a wise choice.5 Reasons Why the Windows Firewall is one of the Best FirewallsWindows Firewall: Your System’s Best DefenseEmsisoft Anti-Malware is an effective alternative to consider.

Hi all!
 
Nowadays, we all have real-time running anti-virus, anti-malware and anti-exploit/anti-ransomware for maximum computer security, as well as backup- and disk imaging software, along with Windows Firewall.
 
And of course common sense and following Best Practices for Safe Computing.
 
It is also equally important to use add-ons in your web browser like i.e. WebOfTrust, µBlock Origin and Ghostery for additional security.
 
However, no installed security tools will provide 100% continous protection, even with a multi-layered security solution. There is always a chance that some malware can bypass everything.
 
Nevertheless, that is where standalone anti-malware tools can help detect and remove whatever malware could remain on your system.
 
And hence, my question is as follows;
 
Do you supplement your Anti-Virus with standalone Anti-Malware tools?
 
Thank you very much in advance!
 
Regards,
