My Thesis Depends on This- Possible Virus Issue

Q: My Thesis Depends on This- Possible Virus Issue

Thank you in advance for any help-

Recently I was working on a document with MS Word 2007 when I suddenly received several save related errors regarding my C drive.

The auto-recovery kicked in and I closed the program and restarted the computer. When I returned to open the document in Word, the file was missing. When I tried to open it from the recently opened files drop down, it said "the file could not be found c:\blah"

From my research and from this link:
http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/632612-disappearing-word-files.html

I think this issue sounds like the Marker virus- and the date that it happened also seems to be evidence to this fact.
A .tmp file also now has a missing path name which I suspect is the one associated with the file I need.
In addition there is an xml file for what I believe may be my document that remanis however it wont open either- Word says this file is corrupt.
Can anyone offer any solution or ideas on how to recover this document?

thanks so much,
Mike

Preferred Solution: My Thesis Depends on This- Possible Virus Issue

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.)

Hello all!
I have a serious problem with a program that my job uses. It is a virtual machine, which allows me to run a separate "machine" within my own. They use this so my personal side of my pc doesn't interfere with the business side, and vice versa. Well, I have downloaded the files several times now, and they appear to dl just fine. Until I run the setup.exe. Then I get an error "1334" every time. I have seen some forums online about this issue, but none that were helpful. The error tells me that it could be a network problem, or a problem with the package. The package comes in .cab files, and each time I re download the package, a different cab malfunctions. My trainer thinks it could be my security, so I disabled it and re did the download. No good. I worked with tech support til almost 1am last night to no avail. I was informed that if I could not figure out what was wrong with my system, or obtain a different system, my job may be at stake. Can someone help me please??

A:Help! My Job Depends On It!

Can you be more specific as to what virtual machine, where you downloaded from, and what security may be interfering.

I hope someone will help. I have wasted so much time today.
Someone else used my computer (I know, I know) and got the stupid malware newnet on it. I went and run the "fix" for it which then promptly destroyed all my internet connections and I cannot get them back. I have no idea how to proceed. Going through the IE wizard does nothing. I have DSL, and of course normally just have to click on the IE icon to open Google (or whatever)....now no page comes up no matter what I choose.
I cannot reinstall Windows completely as I have not backed up in a long time and it would take me days to complete that....so that's not an option at this moment. (I have to work on this computer in the morning.) Can someone plllllllease tell me what to do?
Thanks in advance!

Oh please someone save my bacon!!!!!

I have a new job with a Time Share Resort. In these trying times, I'm trying to make the best impression I can. I am building an Excel Spread sheet that will allow others to enter data that I will then compile and create reports with.I just can't figure out how to write this formula or if it can even be accomplished. I have 1 column (Column A) that other users will populate with Room numbers. I would then like the second column (Column B) to auto populate with a Home owner's association number and a 3rd column (Column C) to auto populate with the average rack rate for that room that referenced from hidden columns. I have 3 pre-populated columns hidden, titled (Column R) Room Numbers (Column S) HOA numbers and (Column T) average Rack Rates. The Rows in the columns (R, S, and T) reference each other: example: If R1 is Room # 1001, then S1 is HOA 1, and T1 is $212.00. So if someone types in 1001 in A7, then the data that corresponds from Column R, in this case 1001 will reference Column S and Column T and auto populate that info into Column B7 and Column C7, respectfully. Is this impossible to do? Or is there a simple formula or macro that can be written to accomplish this?

I truly, truly appreciate any assistance I can get!

Hello 2low2rl and welcome,

One of the infections onboard is interfering with HijackThis. We prefer a more comprehensive set of logs to assist in detecting the extent the malware has infiltrated.

As noted in the final step (Step 5) of our sticky topic IMPORTANT - Read This Before Posting For Malware Removal Help....

DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

Hello everybody,

My thesis, now a word-document of 44 pages, seems to be a problem for every computer I try to work on. Whenever I open the document. Word stops responding. Sometimes this happens immediately after I have typed my first character, sometimes it hangs in there till I want to save, or make a bullet list.

-All these computers have windows XP.
-I have allready removed every image in the document to size it down
-I have tried it by shutting down the spelling and grammar check "as you type" but this was no help either
-The document size is currently 11.5 MB
-There are numbered (chapter)headings in the document and some cross-links and numerous footnotes

I can't think of anything else then the options I allready tried (removing the images and turning of spell- and grammar check).

I hope someone can help me because now I'm unable to work on my thesis.

Maybe not an entirely new subject but for me, fighting malware on a daily basis on behalf of my customers, it would be nice to see a student turning his or her talents to that fight so maybe a thesis entitled "on why people use their computing skills for criminal purposes when they could be developing the next generation of useful software".

My computer crashed and my Master's Thesis is on it!!

I have a gateway purchased just a few months ago. I was using the computer one moment and it turned itself off. Now when I power it back on, all power lights and LEDs come on and the exhaust fan runs loudly. The computer does not enter BIOS, and sends no signal to the monitor. I attached it to my in home network (but am guessing the reason it didn't show up is because Windows never booted).

Gateway support had me jump through a bunch of useless hoops before asking me to mail my tower to them. While I have every confidence in them, I can't exactly wait for two-three weeks to get my PC back.

Any suggestions about what I should try, or problem diagnosis. Is it my motherboard?

Hi folks. depends.exe will not function on my Vista Ultimate x64. Any program I try to start has an error finding IESHIMS.DLL. The program will not profile as a consequence. There is a search sequence that could be modified but this DLL is not within the list.

Search results as a screenshot is attached. There are about 10 of these DLLs with varying dates, locations and versions. The machine runs very well otherwise; no administrative errors in the logs.

The reason this program is being used was spurred on by a Nero tech who supposedly found an error in the Nero 9 diagnostics CAB file. The complaint was that I could not view an MOV in Showtime. I think it is the file which was downloaded from Frostwire. Nero does everything else perfectly. I would still like to get depends to work for general knowledge and future diagnostics.

I cannot find this problem anywhere on the net or in this forum. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I tried booting into the laptop using bootable Win XP floppies (6 of them) and I got the same error. I cant get into the laptop in safe mode or anyother mode. It also suggested that I get into the BIOS and fix some UDMA. I am unable to get into the BIOS using F1 or Del key...thanks to Toshiba!!
Everytime I reboot it goes into this option mode where it asks select a mode to boot...safe mode...safe mode with command prompt....safe mode with networking....last know working mode./....normal windows mode. I select any of them I get the windows xp screen booting up and then it just reboots.

Before I ask for a solution I have one question:

Is there anyway I can recover the data from the HDD?

Okay guys this is matter of life and death for me.
I have been working on my thesis when my Toshiba laptop just died. It has everthing I have done till date on my thesis. I tried to restart and I get Unmountable_Boot_Volume. I tried booting into the laptop using bootable Win XP floppies (6 of them) and I got the same error. I cant get into the laptop in safe mode or anyother mode. It also suggested that I get into the BIOS and fix some UDMA. I am unable to get into the BIOS using F1 or Del key...thanks to Toshiba!!
Everytime I reboot it goes into this option mode where it asks select a mode to boot...safe mode...safe mode with command prompt....safe mode with networking....last know working mode./....normal windows mode. I select any of them I get the windows xp screen booting up and then it just reboots.

Before I ask for a solution I have one question:

Is this a sign that my laptop HDD is dead?

Is there anyway I can recover the data from the HDD?

Kindly offer some solution.

PS: By the way all this happened after I did the SP2 update!!

Hey guys and gals, I just wanna say, thanks for everything in advance. So, my dad's small business server (Windows 2003 Server for Small Businesses, HP Proliant Systems) crashes on startup, without exception, starting yesterday. Every single time I boot up Windows, it dies before getting to the login screen. I always get the Blue Screen of Death with this message:

and

Please help, as my huge important thesis papers are on there, due next week, and I'm basically ****ed if I can't recover them. Being the idiot I am, I didn't back them up, so that's about 3 months of work right there. If you guys can help me fix this, you are my saviors.
I've gone onto safe mode, but I just get this error

Ok gang, I have one that really is throwing me for a loop. One computer in my company is having difficulties in sending e-mails through Outlook 2007 running POP3. The part that has me scratching my head is that everything works fine while the computer is connected here in our office, but whenever she leaves, she has intermittent sending issues... it just hangs in the ourbox. It works for the first few minutes then stops sending them out. I have searched all through the Microsoft site and couldn't find anything that related.

Any ideas on what to look for?

A:Outlook 2007 - e-mail stuck in outbox (depends on ISP)...

I had a similar issue, though it may not be the same.

Some ISP's (like AT&T, who I hate and despise and upon whom I heap curses and incantations of evil) won't let you use any SMTP server other than theirs to send mail, even if the e-mail account isn't with them. You have to go through a whole rigamaroll to set it up.

But like I said, your issue may be (and probably is) something different. Are there any error messages?

Hi,

I know this is probably a rather tiresome query, but I've surfed the net endlessly and not found a solution. I'm attempting to populate a memo box, which depends on user choice from a chain of combo boxes (unbound).

I'm creating a classroom planning/assessment database application (the new Learning Essentials for those involved in Australian Education). The system I'm creating, database-wise, is a little complicated (I am an absolute self-taught beginner, so please be kind and precise with your terminology, explaining where I should find the tools you mention). We have 7 "KLAs", which are each chosen with an "Assessable Element" (depending on the KLA) for each grade, which each act as an umbrella for a number of "Knowledge and Understandings" (each K & U has a descriptor of more than 255 characters. Under each "Knowledge and Understanding" is a dozen or so "Detailed Elements" (that the kids get assessed on). So I have the following hierarchy of tables:

KLA
Assessable Elements
Year (or Grade in America-speak)
Ways of Working (differing and dependent on previous choices)
Knowledge and Understandings (includes the descriptor)
Detailed Elements

Each table is linked in hierarchy to the one above via foreign keys (and sometimes to more than one table above (my description is the simplified version - it's more complicated than that). So you can imaging that the KLAs table is quite small (only 7 re... Read more

Hello and thank you for taking time to help me with my computer issue,

I am in no way a computer "smart" person, and will need help step by step, as I am unfamiliar with most terms. Please forgive my ignorance....

Here are my problems...I just got hired (today as a matter of fact, that's why I am freaking out about this) on to a new work-at-home job that will involve using my computer daily starting tomorrow, but have found it to be a MAJOR problem to actually do anything serious on it and need help ASAP.

I just erased 2 virus scanners on my computer and left Malewarebytes' Anti-Malware, so there was no conflict between the 3. I had Windows Defender and Ad-Adware. So the only thing I have left on my computer is Malewarebytes'.

EVERY single time I scan my computer, (I also would get the BSOD when I scanned with the other 2 virus protections as well), whether it be a full system scan or quick scan, I get the "Blue screen of death." It only happens after the scan is complete and is asking me to restart my computer.

I also cannot Google any webpage without it redirecting me to another webpage. No matter what I do, I am constantly being redirected. I use Firefox and sometimes Internet Explorer. Both do the same thing. The only way I can... Read more

Hi barmardiv,

Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Please stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms seemingly abate.

Kindly follow my instructions and please do no fixing on your own or running of scanners unless requested by a helper.

------

Let's start with Combofix.

1. Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2

* IMPORTANT !!! Place combofix.exe on your Desktop
2. Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with ComboFix.
You can get help on disabling your protection programs here

3. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
Note: Windows Vista users will have to right-click on the file and select "Run as Administrator"

4. As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.

Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.



The Windows recovery console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode that allows us to help you in the case that your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

The issue is simply everytime I've used Etrust virus scan when in Internet explorer (have to be) I minimize it, and when I bring it to normal it's fine, but minimize it and bring it up when it's in the Java folder it freezes, should I do an individual scan on the Java folder to see if it has viruses or just make it a special do not scan folder and un-click it when scanning?
 

A:Solved: Etrust Viruscan does not like Java Program folder: not virus issue but scanning issue

Hi, Often the applets stored from Java usage will trigger either a detection or an issue as you are seeing from antivirus scanners.

I'd suggest clearing the Java cache: see the attached screenshot, your version may be slightly different but you should be able to see where to look, and what to do. (The attached pic is from a slightly older version of the Java...the steps below are up to date, though)

Control Panel> (Switch to Classic View)> open Java

Find the Settings tab/button, and open that...then find the Delete Files button and click that.
It's just deleting the temporary files left from Java applet usage.

Then, after clearing the cache, run your scan again and see if it works correctly.

Hello Bleepingcomputer! I am a long time user of PCHelpForum that has been reffered to this forum as a better alternative and I decided to check it out. There is definitely something funky going on with my computer, as I recieve virus infection pop ups occasionally, my computer will randomly say it has encountered an issue and needs to restart, and has had internet connectivity issues. I used to frequently use HijackThis! logs as a means of analysis, but it seems that this FRST application has taken over that niche. Please let me know what additional information you may need for your analysis. If there are any unneccessary files or programs installed that may be an issue as well, please let me know, as I am trying to do as much of a deep clean as possible.

A:Virus analysis and removal. Random virus pop-ups and internet connectivity issue

Thank you for deleting the extra copy of this post. Once I hit post, my internet connection was lost and it must have double posted when I reconnected. Also, it may be worth noting that normally when I run antivirus software, there is generally a little bit of malware or spyware that is found, but recently when I run a multitude of different scan programs absolutely nothing shows up. Either my computer is squeaky clean after nearly 6 months without scans, or something is blocking/hiding from the scanners. It seems to be the latter, as I have mentioned that I am having issues with my laptop shutting down intermittently, virus warning popups, and internet connectivity issues stemming from something altering my connection preferences.

I checked the Resource Manager and nothing too weird has been going on like my last computer when it had a similar issue. (Last time it the search indexer went haywire and I had to disable it). The disk highest active time jumps from 1 to 100% a when it starts to freeze, but other than that I don't see any programs that are taking up all the resources or anything.

The only thing I have installed was Planetside 2 a Sony game, and after I uninstalled that completely still no results.

Another forum was having issues with this and they said that their HD firmware was to blame.

Anyone have ideas?

Hi everyone!
My computer rebooted itself a few days ago. When it did this my computer stopped at the log in user screen. I've never had any other users setup on my computer. When rebooting it always goes straight to the windows desktop. After that I noticed that my desktop picture and all of the folders I had on the desktop were gone. My favorites were removed form IE8 and I keep getting a security settings warning bar that doesn't let me fix it. I click fix my setting and it looks like it does then on the next page it pops up again. So I had to create another user with admin rights to use for the internet. I can find all of my files that were on the desktop but they are showing up under user owner but if I log into widows with user owner they don't show up. I also show another user with no admin rights and is password protected. ASP.NET machine A???? So I'm not sure what's going on here.

Ill give a summary of the situation.

Computer got infected once. I did the first sensible thing, i ran Spybot, Registry Mechanic and Ad-Aware to see if i could get rid of them. Didn't work.

I then wiped my hard drive and reinstalled windows...the thing is still there same problem. Did a re-wipe again, same issue.

And the problem is, my PC keeps resetting after 10 seconds or so after logging into normal mode. I can get into safe mode though but nothing more. I tried disabling the reboot on system failure option and my BSOD givs me a ntio256.sys issue and all that crap.

I even have reports from Spybot of Smitfraud-C on my computer. These files, when removed, just keep showing up again and again and again after being removed.

If you have steps to give me whereby i can collect the data u need to help me diagnose my issue, please help out.
