[SOLVED] No Connectivity after "infected win.gen2" and "XP antivirus 2012" issues

Q: [SOLVED] No Connectivity after "infected win.gen2" and "XP antivirus 2012" issues

System: Acer Aspire one netbook.
Win XP home ed. SP3

Synopsis of issue:
Got this comp. from my company for a new line of work I started. Was "deep frozen" when I got it and was useless to me in that state. Got it thawed and it suddenly wanted to do loads of updates, so I let it. Apparently I was not careful enough & got the "XP antivirus 2012" malware.

Eventually conquered that beast and installed avira free. almost immediately avira picked up on the "html/infected win.gen2" malware. I quarantined, deleted, scanned comp. w. avira, rkill, & malwarebytes. all scans came up clean but I now have no connectivity. wired conn. continually tries to acquire network address and w.less has limited or no....

Not my router or modem as I have 2 home comps actively cnctd as I type this. Also tried multiple other networks w. same neg. results.

After loads of searching and t/s'ing I believe I have found the root of the problem: When I look under "services" I found that "netbios helper", "Network Location Awareness" & "dhcp client" are all not started.

Trying to start them results in failure b/c some "dependencies are marked for deletion". the afore-mentioned 3 things are dependent upon the Netbios over tcpip and tcpip protocol driver.

Those drivers are in the system32/drivers folder but I cannot find a "non plug and play" section in the device manager. Yes, I looked under "hidden devices" and I looked in every drop down.

I successfully cmd: netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt but when I tried to reset winsock I got winsock is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I have no reboot disk or thumb drive and bios is p/w'ed so I can't wipe the slate clean and start fresh. Is there anything I can do short of giving it to the "IT guy" at work? That's a black hole I'd really like to avoid if possible.

I hope I have been as clear and concise as possible and I appreciate all the help. Happy New Year!

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] No Connectivity after "infected win.gen2" and "XP antivirus 2012" issues

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.)

Hello Gunnersfan13,

I do see the problem and I'll have to ask you to please stop any more action on your part to resolve this yourself or you'll make my job that much more difficult. :)

You are still very much infected with ZAccess. I need to see the dds.txt. (You posted, and attached, only the Attach.txt produced by dds.scr)

Run dds.scr again, and post the contents of the dds.txt.

==============================

Next, open Notepad and copy/paste the contents inside the quote box below, into Notepad.


Quote:




regedit /a afdexport.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\currentcontrolset\Services\AFD"
notepad afdexport.txt




Save this as afdexport.bat Choose to "Save type as - All Files"

Double click on the .bat file & allow it to run. Then post the log which it produces

===============================

Also, download SystemLook from one of the links below and transfer it to your desktop.

Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:


Code:
:filefind
afd.sys

Click the Look button to start the scan.
When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found at on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

Hey everyone,

have asked me to post on these forms. Can someone please help me with this? I am not able to move forward because the error is pretty generic and doesn't give any additional details.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

My ASUS computer (Windows 7, 64 bit) was infected by "AV Security 2012". It seems that it is bundled with "ZeroAccess Rootkit" because it won't allow any program to run, claiming that they are infected. Besides poping up alerts and windows, it also disabled "System Restore" function and won't allow me to boot into Safe Mode. It does not allow me to delete AV Security 2012v121.exe either.

I read a bunch of articles online about how to remove it, but apparently, the people who developed this virus are reading them too! This version of virus has rendered these instruction useless. This is way beyond me now. I need help from a few Einsteins to kick this virus's butt.

Below is the HijackThis log. It won't let me run DDS, downloaded from the first link, probably killed by the "ZeroAccess Rootkit".

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:





I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

I have tried every google search string that I can think of, and found... Read more

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hi TimFF,
This might be related with the UAC settings, check this thread:

The steps in the above thread is not recommended.
For the short name usage, we may consider to create a directory-junction from
PROGRA~1 to C:\Program Files:
With the following commands:
mklink /J "C:\PROGRA~1" "C:\Program Files"

I've spent the last two or so weeks attempting to fix this problem. I'll explain it to the best of my ability. If you have any questions, I'll be happy to help you help me.

My problem started about 10 days ago. Prior to this date, my service would drop, not predictably, but enough that I can remember it. Comcast has insisted there is no problem and no other computers on the network experienced this problem, so I assumed it was something local. I never made a real attempt to fix it, however, because it wasn't a big enough problem to bother me. A simple reboot would fix the problem. The error would occur most often when I was downloading media and running another program that was accessing the internet. The problem would still occur without both happening at the same time, however, so I assumed that it was a coincidence.

10 days ago, I was on the internet, browsing. I left for an hour and upon my return, found the internet was disconnected. I rebooted and, instead of connecting, an error came up. "Limited or no connectivity." After several more restarts, I was connected, but it dropped out again, with the same error. I connected looked my Wireless card up and it connected to the network.

After several days, the wireless card came up with the same error. In addition, the error was still happening with the LAN connection and it would say the network cable is unplugged, when it is clearly plugged in. I would have assumed it was an error wit... Read more

Hey, I am really hoping someone can help me solve this problem, it's driving me up the wall!
When I started using my computer this morning everything was fine, and then "no network access" kept appearing, along with "limited connection/connectivity". I would troubleshoot the problem, but then at the end of the troubleshoot it would freeze, and my screen went black, so I had to turn my computer off and then on again.

I'm trying to connect two computers together. One is a desktop (which is an XP sys.) that can connect to the internet through a dsl modem, and I want to share the internet connection to laptop, (which runs on vista) through this hub (it's some 5-port dynex hub i got for like 20$). I connected the modem to the hub's first port, in the second port i connected the desktop to the hub, and from the third hub i ran the ethernet cable to the laptop. The laptop used to run ok till now. I look at the connection status and it reads
Ipv6 connectivity: limited. I click diagnose, it resets the local area adapter, renews the IP, reboot the modem, and nothings fixed it yet. For both the Ipv4&6 they are set to automatically find IP addresses and servers, and gateways. don't know much else.

I've been having some problems with my computer and I've always somehow managed to work my way around the issues spyware/malware etc. have created but lately it's been getting out of hand.. Some time ago I got a virus or something that made the entire tab under "Processes" dissapear. So I could not see process-names in the task-manager. I have re-installed XP but this problem persists. I have been using a different application to monitor and handle processes.

The problem now is the constant pop-ups generated from this fake anti-virus program calling itself "Anti Virus Pro 2007" or something.. It pops up with fake commercials, and even attach itself into other explorer-windows while I view other pages.

As popups and messageboxes keep popping up, I close them, but after a while windows will open a messagebox telling me "Buffer overrun detected in e:\Windows\system32\explorer.exe" (or \\windows\explorer.exe I don't remember really but you get the idea) and explorer.exe will be terminated, sometimes taking some internet explorer windows along with it, other times explorer.exe just starts up again and all my windows remain.

I used to have Norton but was forced to remove it as it was sucking up all my CPU. It rendered my computer useless, as I mainly use it for gaming.

I've also experienced having the connection between me and my modem broken while beeing on the internet, and I don't know if my computer actually is offline or if -I'm- just... Read more

I have a Windows 8 CD for repairing purposes.. however, I cannot load the BIOS/UEFI to change the boot order to load the optical drives first. I have also tried to remove the CMOS battery to fix it.. did not work. .
Also - Windows Boot Manager:

Ok so I'm using a custom visual style made by another user however I don't really like the buttons used that I mentioned above. The creator states it is acceptable to change the theme to however you like as long as you don't redistribute it anywhere.

Ok so I opened up the .msstyles file (using Restorator) located in the theme folder of this VS. I went into the images directory and located what seems to be the images used for the buttons. Intuitively, it seems like it would make sense to replace those images with different ones (perhaps from another visual style) and it should change them. However, would this actually work? Could the theme get messed up in some other way (like proportions or something if the new button images are smaller)? I don't know of any other way to change them that would be easy.

But I did run into another problem. For some visual styles I can't even locate those buttons in the images directory. Where else would they be?

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

I am running winXP sp2 on a dell precision m4300 laptop.
One time I was notified my firewall was disabled for some reason, and from that point on I got aggravating pop ups for antivirus2009 and to a site with the url of, "hxxp://sagipsul.com/go/?cmp=vm_mg_juan&uid=A7BB4040D6D911DD9ED1166350CFFFFF&lid=search&url=www.google.com%2Fsearch%3Fhl%3Den%26q%3Dsearch%26btnG%3DGoogle+Search&guid=3A89FEB4A603401A92E80D4C46C9D2B8&affid=166350&rid=zdez&cl=superjuan" or "hxxp://83_1422112919.admarketplace.com/"
which seems to be tracking information on my searches, since it pops up every time i put something in the google search box. I tried running spybot S&D and AVG, but no avail. Please help!

A few days ago i got the nastiest virus on my machine i have ever seen.

It didn't slow my machine down any due to my having more cores and ram than i could ever use

But it got all executable files and redirected them to the virus.

It also new exactly were to hit my comp disabling my internet explorer\firefox killing my windows defender getting through my firewall and disabling most control panel programs.

I was able to get my comp back thanks to this website
i had to look at in on i different comp though.
Remove Win 7 Antispyware 2012 and Vista Antivirus 2012 name changing rogue (Uninstall Guide)

It saved me disabling the virus long enough too get control of my comp to resolve the problem.

But sadly the virus damaged my windows defender and it has not recovered.

I went to the windows website to download windows defender but Microsoft wont install it due to it thinking it is already installed.

It is not listed in add\remove programs.

I looked in turn windows features on or off and it was non existent there as well.

So after a long day of head banging i called it a day.

At least i got my comp back up to full speed

So if you guys have some pointers i would be appreciative

P.S. From my experience it was pretty complex. It knew exactly were to hit plus it posed as an anti virus program so a less experienced person would have believed it.

Hello Geek,

If you are sure you've removed all traces of the virus, follow these tutorials to see if they can fix anything: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker & Startup Repair

Might consider using this saftey scanner from MS: Microsoft Safety Scanner - Antivirus | Remove Spyware, Malware, Viruses Free

What antivirus are you using? Are you practicing safe internet browsing?

My roommate got a particularly nasty version of the windows 7 antivirus 2012, it even installed a fake version of Malwarebytes. I was able to remove it by starting in safemode, killing it's process and running spybot followed by an avast full system scan, then a boot time scan. Now several scans and restarts later all scans are coming back clean (sfc included).

That being said, after the malware was removed .exe files were broken, windows firewall wouldn't start and the service was missing from the services list [BFE was also missing] (manually fixed the registry via various posts on this forum, these are working again). The netbook still won't connect to the internet, and I suspect windows update is broken as well. The malware also did something to Avasts realtime web shield, the shield is stuck off, attempting to turn it on does nothing. While the malware was still on the computer clicking the 'turn on' button in avast would trigger a popup from the virus (not an avast popup, a popup from the malware itself). All of the system restore points have been corrupted as well.

So, I'm not really sure what to do next... I would usually do a clean install of the OS in a situation like this, but his netbook doesn't have an optical drive (it would be easy enough to back up all his files, if there is an alternative method for reinstalling the OS...?). Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:Various registry problems after removing "Windows 7 antivirus 2012"

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

A clean install does sound to be the best option.

Have a look at this tutorial, which explains how create a bootable USB drive.

I've done it myself and the install is far faster than installing from a DVD.

Hi All, Happy New Year!

First time posting... On 1/3/08 i ended up with a bunch of viruses on my computer. From what I can gather they are bad news. I down loaded PC Tools to do a search and found a bunch of Trojans and other nasties...

I have uploaded a screen shot of the PC Tools scan...

In the "C:\Program Files\Video Add On" folder the following can't be deleted:
icmtr.dll
icthis
isfmdl.dll
isfmm
isfmntr

In the "C:\Program Files\Helper" folder the following was found:
turbosearchsite.dll e404 Module

What is this? Do I need the file in Helper?

Please help!

PS: I am not a techno savvy guy. I kinda know what is going on but only enough to get myself into trouble and not be able to get out! I tried a few things to get rid of them but was unsuccessful.

From what I have seen I will be here for a bit. Thanks in advance.

Basically, a year ago I found myself on the wrong side of the internet and got a "fake internet scan" telling me I have many virus's. Sound familiar? Well, I managed to remove it, or so I thought. Just recently I got this exact message that popped up on my computer screen. "Explorer.exe would like to access computer, if you did this click confirm" of course I clicked cancel.. the scary thing is it kept popping back up. I gave in and clicked confirm and the fake antivirus popped up. So I did a recovery first, NOT a reformat YET. It stayed active for about a day and then the same "explorrer.exe" popped up again.
Getting straight to the point! (sorry so much typing, but it may help you solve the problem or atleast figure it out)

I restarted and reformated my computer to its original state, thinking it would destroy the source and or file of the virus location. I got Norton all updated, but I noticed something and gasped. " An intrusion attempt by localhost was blocked " Now wtf?
Looked at more of the details.

Hi there,

I'm using Windows XP SP3. I'm having a good deal of trouble with both "Win32/Cryptor", "Packed.Monder" amongst others. AVG is also reporting "Trojan Horse Backdoor.Genericll.AJFO" and "Trojan Horse Rootkit-Pakes.M".

The main problem I am having is that when running in normal mode, my computer is suddenly restarting without warning!

Before this happens, typically AVG will become aware of about 3 - 6 sudden instances of infection - C:\Windows\System32\drivers\braviax.exe (cryptor) or C:\Windows\system32\drivers\ntfs.sys (rootkit-pakes) among others. And then the computer will surely restart.

Here is what I did before running DDS and GMER.

Firstly I ran a full scan in AVG (while in safe mode). I have the log of this if you need it.

After this, I ran AVG again, it removed 10 infections - I rebooted my computer and then installed the Malwarebites Anti-Malware scanner, updated it, renamed the .exe file and ran a quick scan which removed
a host of other infections.

After this, my computer wasn't restarting anymore, but I'm nearly certain the viruses are still around. In fact, I think it might have something to do with the fact that I'm disconnected from the internet now.

Here is what DDS gives me now:

Hi:

Looking for insight/advice re: KB3054476.

According to Infoworld, it was "Optional" in May, but I was not offered it then.
This week, it was offered as "Important" and "Recommended" (!), but only for one of my 2 Win7/64 boxes.

I have read the MS KB article, as well as THIS FORUM THREAD, the latter of which includes a report of a BSOD due to this particular update.

However, there isn't much out on the web about it.
And most of the discussion about it is overly technical for me.
And I am confused as to why it was previously offered as "Optional", but now is "Important" or "Recommended".

I don't *think* I "need" it (as I have no webcam on this box). And I don't like to tempt fate by fixing things that are not broken.

So, 3 questions:
Is it safe to install?
Is it really necessary/important?
Or would I be OK to hide it?
Thanks very much in advance!

A:KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional"

The status of updates changes with circumstances.
If an update isn't relevant, it won't be offered at all.
If however it's relevant but the related software is not apparently in use, it may be 'optional' - and gravitate to 'Recommended' or 'Important' if the related software is in use.
It can also be promoted through the hierarchy by MS depending on feedback through WU and error-trapped feedback.


If you have (and use) a webcam, then it's probably best to install the update.

Guys,

I am a little confused with regard to some of the mail options in Outlook Express. (I have version 6) What is the difference between the "Drafts" and "Outbox" folders?

Further how does the "Send Later" option work from the file menu? I always thought that "Send Later" was the same as using "Drafts" but what happend was that I was doing an e-mail, went to Drafts, or clicked on "Send Later" or Outbox and then after I clicked on "Send" doing a regular send, I checked my Sent folder and about 3 copies of the same message were delivered to the same person! (I only sent one message-not 3!)

What is the deal with the "Outbox" folder? Apparently that is not like the Drafts folder....correct?

What's the difference between doing a Save, Save As, and Send Later with regard to OE functions? If I want to save a message that isn't done yet, which of these 3 options should I use? (I.e, I want the message to go to the Drafts folder for example and stay there until I TELL OE to send it.) I think whatever I did above was that I modified my message and then click on where it just automatically sent next time I opened the message. A review of these features would be helpful!

Just for the record, I also use Yahoo Mail and find that so much easier!

Jack
 

A:Please Review OE "Send", "Drafts", and "Outbox" Options

Jack
To save an E-Mail to your Drafts folder for work on later then you use the File\Save option.
If you wish to save the E-Mail in another format such as .EML or .TXT or .HTM then you use the Save as function. You will also be required to specify a folder to save in or use its "My Documents" default.
Send later function if only one e-mail account exists will place the e-mail in the outbox and send it the next time you click on the send receive button. If you have multiple accounts then you can specify which account to send it from.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Hi guys, I ask you a lot of help because I'm in trouble up to my neck. I try to be as detailed as possible.
I have a Packard Bell with initially installed Windows Vista Home Premium (I don't know if 32-bit or 64-bit). Over time I updated it to later versions, and in fact before the problem I normally had Windows 10.

Brief introduction: as you know, telematic lessons have started in the world at home. So I installed Microsoft Teams and so far everything is ok. I noticed, however, immediately that the fan of my old PC with more than 10 years of intense work was starting to fuel quickly. While I was thinking about how to solve, the inevitable happened: during a lesson the PC freeze in the screens, and after waiting 5-10 minutes I turned it off by the button. By re-accessing it, this screen appeared, as the title says:

"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have the disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
