Preferred Solution: AVG detects threat and keeps healing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi everyone,

I currently use 3 free security programs : Avast 6, Microsoft security essentials and Malwarebytes.

I just ran a quick computer scan with Avast and just when the scan completed I got an alert from microsoft security essentials :

Does this mean that there's a virus located in my Avast temp folder? Or maybe MSE doesn't get along too well with Avast??

I wont remove the file until I get an answer cuz I'm affraid this could de-activate Avast!

Please help!

A:MSE detects a threat in Avast folder!

It's generally not advised to run multiple Anti-virus at the same time. They don't agree with each other, resulting in a lot of conflicts with virus removal as well as a multitude of other things.

For example, they could both latch onto the same infected file and try to delete it. Obviously, this doesn't work very well, usually ending in a terribly slow computer. Similar problems occur if one AV quarantines a file while the other AV tries to delete it. I once had BitDefender and Trend Micro installed on the same computer. My computer was so slow, it was barely usable.

Most AV software nowadays attempts to detect and remove other competitors at installation. it's probably for the best as having more than one AV will probably cause you more problems than do you good. If there's any AV software you prefer, I recommend keeping it and uninstalling the others. Malwarebytes in my opinion, is great. You should be able to use it in conjunction with avast! or MSE though as it doesn't offer real-time protection. Though in the end, it really comes down to what you feel more comfortable with. Alternatively, you may have to set exclusions for the related file folders in order to avoid any complications.

I use Avast! Free antivirus & just recently, while browsing on Google chrome, I received a message from Avast saying they detected & blocked a malware threat. I closed it and continued browsing but the message would keep appearing each time I opened a new page or refreshed the current page. 
I tried firefox and had the same results. I ran a quick scan with MBAM but nothing turned out. I'm also not receiving the messages from Avast any more so I'm not quite sure if I've been infected or not. 
Some help & advice on what actions to take would be greatly appreciated! 
Edit: I forgot to mention, my OS is Windows 8.

I have Trend Micro Internet Security 12 and have run the antivirus but didnt seem too clear it. I have also tried using AVG Antivirus, but same thing. I've ran CCleaner, Xoftspy, and Ad-Adware, but I still get the pop up. This has only started happening today, last night I never once recieved such a pop up. I've tried searching for a thread about this, but usually came up with some specific trojan, if there's one that helps fix my problem, please direct me to it, in the meantime I'll keep searching, thanks.

Ive always trusted Spybot SD, and it has always detected a lot of adware and spyware etc. Anyway, while doing a scan, it detected something called BPSS Spyware Remover. Ive never head of such a program on my PC, and I never remember downloading it so I figured I would delete it like all threats found by Spybot. However, when I click on it, it is labeled as a Registry Key, so I'm obviously wary of removing it. The information on the threat is as follows:

Company: Bulletproof Soft
Threat: Malware

Functionality: Supposed to be an anti-spyware software.

Description: Downloaded through an .exe file. Uses false posotive in order to threaten the user to purchase the full version. It also flags Spybot SD. Used to have Users a stolen Sybot SD database and therefore is a copyright infrigment.

Should I delete this or what? Remember, it is a registry key!

A:Spybot SD detects a Registry Key as a threat...delete?


That is a rogue application - see here


and scroll down to BPS Spyware & Adware Remover

Allow Spybot to delete the Registry key - it will be quite safe.

This is an older via chipset 1.5 Sata with a sata 3.0 WDC 1TB drive, and I have the OPT limiter jumper in place
Problems encountered installing SATA 3.0 Gb/s hard drives on SATA 1.5 Gb/s controllers

Before I put the jumper on the drive, the bios ignored the WDC sata drive. With the jumper in place, the bios detects and recognizes the drive.
In the bios setting, I turned on SATA enabled and set from raid to IDE.

But when boot Windows or Linux, the drive is not showing up in disk management or anywhere.

So how can I get the OS to see the drive?

A:Sata drive bios detects, but os not detects neither windows or linux

well it is not solved, but clonezilla nows sees the drive, and is cloning the IDE onto the SATA.
perhaps a flaky connection?

I got a 1tb SATA for an external storage drive and wanted to see if it could work on this older MB 1.5 SATA connector. See if the drive did any better than the 320 GB IDE Maxtor drive.

Drive is Cavier Green Sata WD10EADS

I just did a lot of playing with all of my computer equipment in order to learn a bit...anyways I took my 300 gB HDD from one computer and put it on a lesser computer, on which I am going to install an evaluation version of Win2000 Server. Then I took the 40 gG HDD from the lesser computer and put in on the better computer.

Ok...now the problem...Win2000 server setup recognizes 131068 mB of hdd space on two seperate unpartitioned spaces. And I find this abnormal for 3 reasons...
first - I know windows will only recognize 137 gB of each partition, but why 131 gB.
second - usually unpartitioned space is combined into one, not 2 seperate spots
And by the way, everything worked fine before the HDD swap and everything reads fine in the BIOS.

I also tried to partition the hdd before the installation with a seagate utility that came with the hdd, but windows wouldn't recognize that properly either.

Thanks for any suggestions.

A:Setup only detects 131068mB of HDD space, but bios detects all of it.

The 'lesser' PC may not be able to handle such big HDs. Check that 48-bit support is available and activated in the BIOS. Or get a BIOS update.
Also, check the Master/Slave jumpers. And are you using 40-wire IDE cable instead of 80-wire?

I have AVG internet security installed on my computer. It runs really well (despite it slowing my computer slightly )

However when I run a scan, reaching the end, it automatically begins "healing" any threats it may have come across. This is all well and good but when it gets right to the end of this process it seems to get stuck almost like it crashes. My cursor turns into the sand timer and "(NOT RESPONDING)" appears in the top of the window?!

It's not a massive problem but I thought I'd post the query in case there's either something I'm doing wrong or in case anyone else has encountered this problem before.

I recently wrote a review of a just-being-released addition to the ThinkPad line, the 14? T490s.  My writeup was based on the one system I had in front of me and, as always with pre-released systems, documentation was sparse at best.  The computer had very early drivers and system software but was remarkably stable and reliable.  New system software started to appear, and I noticed a new BIOS image, that was described as the initial release, but was substantially newer than what was on my computer.  I always try to apply updates as early as possible on any machines I review, hoping to identify any unexpected issues before the general market.  During the BIOS update, a message I had never seen flashed by.  As a result of nothing more than blind luck, my camera happened to be within reach and the battery was charged.  I apologize for the quality of the photo, but there was no time for staging.
New message
Based on what I can ascertain, the process is intended to be completely invisible to the user, other than the message I noticed.  After a BIOS update, the BIOS restarts and, after initialization, the image is backed up before booting into Windows or another operating system.   On subsequent startups, if there is a problem starting, the backed-up BIOS image is restored automatically.  In some ways, this is similar to the way Microsoft handles drivers in Windows.

I spent the night at my sister's the other day. She was agitated while using her laptop. Typical complaints, it is slow to respond, some programs won't open at all, and pop ups. I ran a few of the scans that I've used in the past and it's more responsive, there aren't any more popups flashing, but it still lags. I am hoping some wise soul on here can take it to the next level.

Thanks in advance!

I have had this issue for many months, now. I loaded Vista x64 Home Premium to run in a dual-boot configuration with my XP Pro. I do critical work so I didn't trust going to Vista exclusively. I mainly wanted it to see if I could utilize all my RAM and speed up Photoshop processing.
I have had it working three or four times, (except for tablet functionality) then when I must re-boot because of SP1 and other security updates or in one case, I installed Office 2007, it does nothing on restart; black screens and just sits there, totally unresponsive. No blinking of the LED which shows drive activity. When re-booting, F8 isn't working (nothing happens). Regarding the previous instances, I gave up trying to get it to respond and went back to booting into XP, which always works fine. Then after a period (usually a month or more) I will try booting into Vista, on restart, and viola, it works again!

Somehow my computer contracted a Win32.HEUR virus off of an accidental spam site visit, and now my computer is full of infections.

At first I tried using AVG, but the virus basically overpowered it and tried to uninstall it.. So I got Kaspersky's virus removal tool. It seems to have taken care of the heur for the most part, but now I have a rootkit.tdss that just won't go away.

The problem is, I can't kill any processes, it's locked my taskbar out, I can hardly open any programs, it just says "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is alread yinstalled, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." I can run programs if I select "run as administrator" but thats the only way they will work right now..

There are other symptoms as well, the whole pc is a complete mess right now, I've been working on it all day and night trying to get the infections cleared out. I just ran Hijackthis and I have a log I can post if necessary.

Is there anything else that I can do get this thing off of my computer??

I'm currently disturbed by this popup every time i open my computer. Whatever user I log-in the same popup appears. The title of the popup is "C:\WINDOWS\system32\keyboard\services.exe" Below that, a message says that Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\keyboard\services.exe'.This started when I transferred video clips from an mp4(ipod). Of coarse, I scanned it first using my updated AVG free edition and found no threat. After that i downloaded a free realplayer11 from cnet (here's the url: http://download.cnet.com/RealPlayer/3000-1...-10073040.html). It was saved to my desktop so as the video clips that I transferred. Then I tried to install realplayer but upon running the downloaded installer, it warned me that the computer will be restarted after the installation. So, I decided to cancel it first and remove first the mp4(ipod) and the flash drive of my cousin (which was already there when I used the computer). I failed in safely removing the mp4(ipod) but succeeded in removing the flash drive. I then, decided to forcefully remove the mp4(ipod) and started a computer scan. As expected, I found 1 trojan and successfully healed it. AVG asked for a restart and I clicked 'yes'. From that time, this annoying popup shows.The incident happened while I'm using the Administrator Account.I'm using Windows XP Professional SP2Please help me with this problem....

A:Popup After Healing Infected File

Hi and welcome..Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.Right-click on the entry and choose delete.Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.Next run MBAM:Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.34) and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via ...

We?ve covered how to use the old school CHKDSK command check on disk in Windows 7 yesterday but what we didn?t touch is actually even better. It?s a nice new feature that I didn?t realize its existed either until very recently.

Basically, once the feature is turned on, Window will detect a physical file system error and automatically fix it on the fly without you even noticing it happened. Because of this, you actually have a lot less chances having to run CHKDSK to check the disk manually because most likely the errors you suspected may have been fixed by this self-healing process already.

NTFS Self-healing is turned on by default in Windows 7 but if you are not sure you can use the following command to make sure. Note that the command has to be run as Administrator.

However, there is a possible downside that you may have already been thinking and wondering. Yes, the data may potentially be removed silently without user?s knowledge during the self-healing process. To address this issue, Microsoft added BugCheckOnCorrupt option that does something you may think it?s crazy.

It throws a BSOD (blue screen of death) and shuts everything down instead of attempting to fix the error, if the system discovers any NTFS corruptions.

Yes, not every BSOD is bad. Some of them happened in purpose, just like this as designed. It does sound crazy because why you would want the system crash, but from the data safety perspective, this att... Read more

Hello guys, I am new here. I'm starting to think my PC is infected, although it shows no solid signs that it is. Here's what led me to think so.
Yesterday, my brother brought a flashdrive and asked me if I could type a document for him and copy that to the drive. I inserted the drive in to my USB port (I had already disabled Autorun using Microsoft TweakUI and was also using Ninja Pen disk), and the drive did not autorun. I decided to scan it using Avira AntiVir Free Edition anyway, although my brother said it was clean, and Avira showed two threats - one was a trojan TR/Autoit.CI.14, as a file named New folder .exe (with a space after 'folder'), and the other was an INF virus INF/AutoRun.lj.7. Avira removed them both and I formatted the pendrive. The thing is, I was checking the Avira Report log this morning and it shows that there were three threats in the pendrive (the above mentioned two, plus another Trojan TR/Spy.Ardamax.J), which is also contained in the file New folder .exe! The report also showed something like Archive type: AutoIt --> svchost.exe, I have no idea what it is. When Avira began disinfection, the Ardamax trojan was logged as TR/Autoit.CI.14. Ardamax is a keylogger, isn't it?
My PC has about 8 svchost.exe running (5 SYSTEM, 2 NETWORK and 1 LOCAL). I downloaded Process Explorer to check the services associated with the svchost files and as soon as I exited the program, my computer displayed a "c000021a FATAL ERROR" BSOD. I should also note... Read more

Hello All,

This is my first post , so be gentle
I have a machine that "MY COMPUTER" is showing a CD Rom, and assigned the letter "H" to it. Sounds great doesn't it?

The problem is, there is no CD ROM at the letter its' been assigned and this CD ROM does not show up in Device Manager, even after exposing all hidden devices.

I have run PassMarks Burn In tests and it is the reason the tests fail.

Does any one have any ideas about how to delete this ghost CD Rom?

Hi guys I would like to see if i can get some help on this please. I have 2gb of ocz pc2-6400 and i just added another two 2gb. On first boot the bios only recognized 3gb and xp only detected 3gb also. So I switched all the memory modules thru each mem slot and they all tested fine. So I read around on asus forums and someone noted to change the bios feature "enable memory remapping". So i went and did that and the bios recognizes the 4gb on boot but when it enters xp, xp now detects only 2gb. i had on my previous p4 rig 4gb of ddr400 and i never had a problem. Is there some limitation on xp that won't allow 4gb if you are using core2 or p965 chipset? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

My AVG anti virus scan detected a worm, said "virus identified worm/SpyBot 17.T'

It couldn't take it out (move to the vault)

When I brought up AVG and clicked on test results it says it's in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ZONEalarm.

Doesn't say what worm it is.

It says the virus wasn't moved, is still on the drive.

I came here looking in SEARCH for the online virus scan (Symantec) but all I can find is separate downloads for specific viruses/worms. I can't find the link to their online virus scan. I've used this before, but it takes a very long time and if I remember right, after several hours with it not going more than 30% I've given up.

So, maybe that's not the right approach?

I don't think looking in WIN SYSTEMS and taking out what I find works, because it might also have reg keys and such?

I uninstalled SpyBot (figuring I can put it back in again) and tried to uninstall Zonealarm, but even though it say it had uninstalled, it's still there (working)

I'm thinking maybe the virus is in the results that came from SpyBot or Zone Alarm and not actually in my computer? I haven't run SpyBot in a long time, I mainly use Adaware.

I use ESET, Spybot Search and Destroy and Windows Defender. Windows Defender is on virus total, and appears to have detected something in this file. Although, on my computer it doesn't detect anything. My definitions are up to date and vaild. I have also tried a scan with Kaspersky and it came back positive, although on Virustotal it has came back negative.

I'm really wondering what is going on. Why isn't any of my protection programs not doing anything? I have also tried it on a different computer with the same software and again no go.

What's going on?

A:Nothing detects virus?

There can be discrepancies between antivirus vendors. It all depends on whose signatures you trust. And there can be false positives sometimes.

To balance it out, you can try ThreatFire, which is a heuristics behavorial antivirus. It detects malicious actions, and its not signatures based. It is designed to compliment your existing signature based antivirus solution.

Hey everyone I'd got a question I hope someone with more knowledge can help me with. I just recently upgraded my ram to 4gb (i previously had 2gb) of the same OCZ ddr2 memory.

I noticed during boot my asus p5b board detects the total of 4gb on the black screen boot, but when I am in xp, my free-ram and computer properties only report 2gb. i used cpu-z and it detects 4gb but how come windows only sees 2gb? I've tried to research lots of forums and even the asus forums whether this is a hardware or software problem.

From what I gathered it's because my xp pro is only 32bit? I thought xp was able to expand to 4gb and my asus board specs that 8gb can be handled. Now it's making me wonder if I am suppose to move over to 64bit xp pro. i don't want to spend extra money for a new OS just to be able to utilize that extra ram. If i had known this, i would have never upgraded the extra 2gb.

I just wanted a more detail explanation if anyone can inform me that would be wonderful. thank you in advance.

A:XP PRO only detects 2gb out of 4gb total

I believe XP has a real limit of 3.5 even though it says 4.0 but thaqt does not explain 2.0 showing in Windows. And I would bet with 4 gig of ram you don't have onboard video to absorb any of it either?

Hi, new to the boards so I hope this is in the right place, if not you have my apologies.
Theres probably a really simple solution to this th atI haven't thought of. I built a new system on a Foxconn motherboard recently, thought everything was working fine until I tried to burn a disc for the 1st time. Found that the dvd burner I'd bought and cd burner I'd taken from a previous machine weren't being recognised as anything other that readers. After lots of swearing I realised that both are being detected by XP as being SCSI instead of IDE. Anyone experienced this before and know how to get around it?

XP Home SP2
Foxconn P9657AA-8KS2H Motherboard (95% sure, not at home to check it)
Sony AW-G170A DVD+/-R/RW
(Some old Lite-On CD +/-R/RW)

Don't think any of the other spec are particularly relevant but happy to give more info. Both ODDs use windows generic drivers and I've checked that I've got the most up to date drivers and firmware for them.
Thanks in advance.

For some time now my Spyboy Search and Destroy has not detected any spyware. I have even gone to sites that i know puts spyware onto my computer, however when i do, no spyware appears when i run my scan. I am thinking there is a program blinding my spybot from anything and everything.

A:Spybot Detects Nothing?!?!

Wait a minute... did you just say you purposely infected your computer just for the sole purpose of seeing whether or not Spybot S&D would detect anything?!? Not smart at all! If your computer is infected and something is blinding Spybot that method of testing wasn't a good idea. Here's a basic overview of your malware cure strategy (I'll give you the comprehensive on when I have time or maybe a more experienced member will drop by and add on).1. Ewido Anti-Malware - Download from: www.ewido.neta. Install itb. Update itc. Close it without scanning2. Use Ad-Aware SE - Download from: http://www.lavasoft.de/english/default.shtmla. Install itb. Update itc. Close it without scanning3. Reboot into safe mode. If you don't know how use bootsafe.exe from:http://www.superadblocker.com/bootsafe.html4. Scan with Ewido in safe mode and remove all malware detected5. Scan with Ad-Aware SE and remove all malware detected.6. Now scan with Spybot S&D, if nothing is found that should indicate either A) Ewido and Ad-Aware SE got most of the malware or You're still infected. But, more than likely you'll be clean.7. Reboot back into normal mode by selecting the Normal Reboot option in the bootsafe.exe tool.8.

It appears adobe is unaware yet that a new OS has been released, or it's not that dynamic as expected to detect a 6.x OS as Vista compatible

You need to manually select OS as Vista , in order to get the latest software version.

But NT??? come on!

Anyways, this happened with Build 7068.

tis is due to the fact that they haven't bothered to update the strings in the check routine, as it probably looks for one of like, 5 things
