AVG quarantined Win32\Zperm

Q: AVG quarantined Win32\Zperm

Hello everyone. Recently AVG quarantined a file called Win32\Zperm. Should i be worried about this? Also, i noticed that when i watch a video online, it's not uncommon for the video to freeze. I than have to close the program and restart internet explorer to get it to work. I orginally started another thread with a Rkill log and was kindly directed, to the proper procedure of starting a thread.

Preferred Solution: AVG quarantined Win32\Zperm

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: AVG quarantined Win32\Zperm

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer. NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with these just skip it and run the next one.-Security Check-Download Security Check by screen317 from here.Save it to your Desktop.Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.-AdwCleaner-Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
Close all open programs and internet browsers.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Delete.Confirm each time with Ok.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.--RogueKiller-- Download & SAVE to your Desktop RogueKiller or from here
Quit all programs that you may have started. Please disconnect any USB or external drives from the computer before you run this scan! For Vista or Windows 7, right-click and select "Run as Administrator to start"For Windows XP, double-click to start. Wait until Prescan has finished ... Then Click on "Scan" button Wait until the Status box shows "Scan Finished"click on "delete" Wait until the Status box shows "Deleting Finished" Click on "Report" and copy/paste the content of the Notepad into your next reply.The log should be found in RKreport[1].txt on your DesktopExit/Close RogueKiller+Gringo

I have had an internet connectivity problem for about a week now. First off, my internet connection randomly disconnects, goes silent for 5-10 seconds every few minutes, and then reconnects. Secondly, and I don't know if this is related, but I have two active connections now, which I never noticed before. My first connection is to my wireless router, and other than the aforementioned problems it behaves normally. My second connection is to Network 3, which I don't remember ever having and cannot control; it acts kind of like a hard line connection from a router in that I can't turn it off, but has no network access and serves no known purpose - I have no wired connection.
I ran AVG free, which detected win32/zperm, quaranteened it and removed it. I ran it again and it found it again. I then ran Ad-Aware which found and removed it several more times. Then I ran AdwCleaner, Junkware Removal Tool and finally ComboFix. The problem seemed to go away for about two days, then the internet connectivity issues returned, and now AVG nor Adaware can seem to find win32/zperm, but the problem persists.


Hello having run ComboFix on your own we will need to see that log to determine what it removed. Please repost here ....Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs. Include your above info and the CF log.

I have a pretty similar problem like another user, but decided to post here, because I am not sure if the same fix applies to me (his thread was: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/480470/avg-quarantined-win32zperm/)
My problem is same or similar. I have an AVG and ad-aware. Whenever I scan with AVG alone (even in safe mode), it doesn't  find anything, but whenever I scan with ad-aware, my AVG finds win32/zperm, detects it as a virus and quarantines it. However, each time I scan, each time I find it there, so it keeps on being there. The file, which gets quarantined is in C:\Windows\Temp\(folder with many numbers, which every time are different)\(folder tmp with more numbers)\(tmp with more numbers). 
I am not sure if it's a false positive or not, but I'd rather hear the opinion of professionals. Another thing is that my videos online also freeze from time to time. Maybe this might be the cause... Issue started just a few days ago.

I ve been wrestling with the removal of the win32/Zperm virus and came across the posting from Gabrielrock nov12 2013 that seems to be a similar problem to mine. see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forum/t/513821/infected-with-win32/zperm
As with above, Ad-Aware detects the win32/Zperm virus and appears to deal with it only for it to re-instates itself in a windows/temp/file. Please advise how I can get rid of it.
I am operating on windows Vista and being relatively PC niave would appreciate guidance.
Many Thanks

My AVG anti virus has been periodically flagging with a 'threat' called win32/zperm. It appears to be in C:\Windows\temp\ I always click remove it and it says its successful but periodically it returns.

I also have the issue of various popups while browsing the internet in Firefox (Its the only browser I use). Anything from this computer has been locked due to suspicious activity call this number to reactivate to various random popups.

Before coming here I've tried updating + running in safe mode AVG Anti Virus. Malware bytes, Spybot S&D and Adaware. They either don't find a threat or one of them find 'tracking cookies' which it removes but doesn't fix the problem.

I ran DDS and attached the two required text files. I've moved since I purchased this computers so I'm not entirely sure where my Window's disk is. I'm on Windows 10 Home 64bit if it matters. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I have both AVG and Ad-Aware installed (Ad-Aware is in compatibility mode so the real-time protection is off). AVG resident shield keeps reporting that Win32/Zperm has been found in the temp folder and this is due to the Ad-Aware Service. I choose the action to remove it, which it says is successful but then it reports the same thing again a little while later. An actual scan by AVG does not find anything, neither does a scan by Ad-Aware.
AVG resident shield report: Virus found Win32/Zperm, c:\Windows\Temp\... (actual folder and file changes every time)
The process name: C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware Antivirus\Ad-Aware Antivirus\11.0.4555.0\AdAwareService.exe
I have also tried scanning with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and that too doesn't give any postives. Could you help me remove it please or is it a compatabilty issue between AVG and Ad-Aware?

A few weeks ago you aided me in cleaning an infection off my computer and I thought it was clean.  However, the last week strange things have been happening.  Here is the original thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/508728/dds-and-combofix-logs-as-requested/?hl=requested#entry3174075
I am running Windows XP Pro SP3, AVG internet security, Ad-Aware antivirus in compatibility mode and from time to time I run I-obit antivirus and Mal-warebytes free version.
Within the last week,

1.  I several times got a boot disk not found error while booting.  I thought it was the hard drive going bad but after a couple of days it was fine.
2.  AVG has several times detected and quarentined Win32/Zperm.  It seems to come back.
The last full system virus scans with I-Obit picked up a few things, I think Trojans, most of which I think are false positive, in old data files in an external backup.   These files have not been accessed for years except for copying them from one place to another.
3 This morning WinPatrol informed me that a number of things had been removed from my startup.  These included WinPatrol, AVG Toolbar, RTHDCPL.exe, Ad-Aware AV (set in compatiblity mode), spybot search and destroy's tea timer and maybe some more that I can't remember.
The programs were still in my system tray but I am reinstalling them just in case now.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance... Read more

Yes, my computer has been running AWFULLY slow for about a year now. Ive got a few virus scanners/protection programs: AVG, Ad-Aware, Malware Bytes- Anti Malware, and Hijack This. My Norton expired ages ago. I have run a good few scans with each of these and deleted viruses/malware that AVG, Ad-Aware and Malware Bytes- AM have found, except from a couple of viruses that AVG has held in the virus vault. These viruses are entitled: Win32\Heur and Win32\Cryptor. The paths to each of these are: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\86k.dll and C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Application Data\svchost.exe I'm not sure if i should get rid of them because one is a link library and the other is an executable file, and I'm especially unsure about this one since svchost is a service runner.I've also recently killed a process in process explorer called "AAAAMONd.exe" which was running another svchost.exe for which the company name was a bunch of random letters and the same with the descriptionAnother symptom is the classic "pop-up symptom" where when i visit a site on iexplorer, it comes up sites such as "best anti-virus removal software" and the URL is nothing like the one i have typed...whenever this happens, the warning window of AVG pops up and i then disconnect my internet so as to not recieve any "gifts".

MSSE quarantined Sirefef!cfg yesterday.

So far, have noticed no adverse symptoms. MSSE updates/scans daily and has caught no other malware.

Will appreciate your help.

GMER found nothing on C:\. The only options *not* grayed out were Services, Registry, Files, and ADS. I unchecked ADS, per instructions.

Many thanks.

Laptop been acting unusually slow, woke up this morning to find a Avast scan warning "threat detected" - when I clicked to the get the scan results nothing happened. Did this several times to no avail. Eventually shut down and ran a boot time scan which picked up nothing. There is oddly no record of the most recent Avast scan which detected the threat. Ran Malwarebytes and Superantispyware also, both came up clean. Had some fake alerts popping up recently, one being a fake adobe alert from professionaln.com. The Win32 viruses in quarantine pre-date these latest issues, there was no option to delete so I just left them there, unsure now whether that was the right thing to do...

ESET stopped and quarantined 4 instances of Win32/Filecoder on a computer this morning. However, there were still outbound communication attempts which were being blocked by ESET - repeated cycling through a list of about 20 IP addresses. I reran ESET, came back clean. Updated and ran MBAM, nothing found except Dell System Detect as PUP. MBAM said was out of date when I closed it, so I updated again and re-ran. Still found nothing. In between runnings of MBAM, I checked for folders that ESET had identified, found one and deleted it, then permanently deleted from Recycle Bin.
Nothing was found by any scans, and now mysteriously the ESET blocking notifications have stopped. I did verify that ESET is still active.  I'm glad the popups have stopped but am also concerned that they have stopped without any apparent action/cleaning/etc (the folder I deleted was supposed to be quarantined, so deleting it *shouldn't* have made a difference).
Do you think I have cause to be concerned or am I safe to assume all is now well?

I have Mcafee on my system and I think my system is highly infected with malware or virus or both; also, spyware as well. I encountered a problem in which MacAfee says that "Virus Found: The file (name of file) is infected by the New Win32 virus and cannot be cleaned. I was able to do a succesful virus Scan at first and stated that 775 files were infected, many of them .exe. Because of my ignorance, I went ahead and quarantined the files; now they are not usable (i.e. Task Manager, Internet Explorer 7 and other files). Now, here's the twist; I cannot access McAfee Manage Quarantined files from the menu as it states the mcmnhdler.exe file is infected by the NewWin32 virus. It has says the same for the file mghtml.exe. So, I can't have any of these files run.

All of the problems happened after I shared a file off of LimeWire, which I thought was a legit P2P platform.
Some symptoms:
1. I get the error message as stated above for any file that I try to run that has the New Win32 virus. One of the common errors that constantly popups is C:\CENTENN.IAL\AUDIT\xfarwan.exe is infected with the NewWin32 virus and cannot be cleaned. When I try to find the file manually, I cant find it in the location mentioned.
2. I have this red X on a shield icon that in the bottom right of my screen, stating that "Spyware infection has been detected." When I click on it, it asks me if I would like update your security software to install System Live Prot... Read more

A:Please Help .... My System Infected By New Win32 Virus And Mcafee Manage Quarantined Files Is Disabled

I'm sorry to tell you this, but it looks like you already know it. Your system is massively infected.Since you use this computer in your work, I don't think you should try to clean it. When a system has been infested as badly as this one, there is no way to be sure that it is "cured." Even if you remove all visible traces of infection there may be other leftovers that you cannot find.The best solution would be to back up your data, then reformat your C:\ and reinstall Windows, either from your Windows install disk or your computer maker's system recovery disk.If you can burn CDs on the machine you can backup the data that way. Other alternatives would be a USB flash drive or hard drive.If Windows is so messed up that you can't use it for file copying or CD burning, then you have to try other methods. If you have access to another computer you can download and burn the Knoppix live Linux CD, then boot your laptop from it. Here is a link to an online tutorial explaining the basics.Once the Linux CD is running you can mount the hard drive and copy files off it to a flash drive or burn them to CD -- or upload them to an online file storage service, as one fellow mentions in the combox. The Knoppix CD has a lot of network drivers and in most situations will give you access to the Internet.The last alternative is to remove the hard drive from the laptop and install it as a "slave drive" in another PC. That is how a professional repa... Read more

Referred from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/302497/help-needed-trojan-virus-detected/ ~ OBHello,I visited a website two days ago and downloaded an .exe file. When i clicked on the link, the file disappeared and Rogers Online Protection(in Canada by Rogers Communications) notified me of a trojan virus intrusion that was quarantined. I had it deleted in the middle of a full system scanning process while I was online with my infected laptopTried to run malwarebytes and couldn't update the software.I noticed that although I couldn't access malwarebytes.org, I could run some other websites which told me that the virus was still present in my system. I had started to receive random popups and disconnected my laptop. Please note that I have not gone online from my laptop ever since. I am presently using a clean computer to communicate as well as download installers/updates from this forum. Another thing to be noted is that I downloaded installers for DDS, Defogger and GMER on my clean computer and transferred to my infected laptop using a USB flash drive. I assume this is a safe procedure as I don't want to risk going online with my infected laptop. I have scanned my usb drive for viruses using Kaspersky Anti- Virus( on my clean computer and no threats were detected.

This topic has a bit of history, if you would like to see it, the thread is
I had been using AVG internet security as my primary defense and Ad-aware anti-virus in its compatibility setting which Ad-aware says is okay with AVG.  I also use WinPatrol and SpybodSD's tea timer.
There was an infection a month or so ago that I thought we had delt with but now I am not so sure.
About a week ago my primary hard drive started giving a "boot disk not found error".  I ran chkdsk and it seemed okay.  I got the error a second time the next day, powered down the computer and rebooted and have had no problem since.
However, yesterday I got a recurring virus detection of win32/zperm from AVG.  I cleaned it several times and it came back.
Next, WinPatrol gave me messages that AdAware AV, WinPatrol, Spybot Search and Destroy Tea Timer, AVG Toolbar and RTHDCPL.exe had been removed from my startup.  Since that time I have had no virus detections.
On instruction by the previous person, I removed AdAware AV, Gomez Peer, Antimalware engine (a part of AdAware), uTorrent and some other things.
The AdAware AV. I had a tremendous amount of trouble removing.  I uninstalled, deleted the folder, scoured the system every way I could th... Read more

My Avast antivirus recently started detecting a whole host of viruses. I ran a thorough scan of all files and deleted every infected file until the scanner turned up a hit in the operating memory. It then suggested I run a boot sector scan - I did so. Upon rebooting Avast started detecting more viruses. This time I rebooted into Safe Mode and ran the scanner there, deleting everything I found. Apparently one of the files I deleted was important, because after that my computer Blue-Screened during boot-up and I had to do a system restore to a save point from a few days ago (before the virus was contracted). Since then the virus has continued to crop up, and I haven't the foggiest notion of how to get rid of it.

The title is a list of the virus descriptions that my Avast scanner gave me. I ran all the programs the walkthrough on this site instructed me to, but the RootRepeal program crashed and generated an error message and crash report, both attached (error message in .png image format - I took a screenshot of it).

Thanks for your help!

Hello,My computer became infected last night, and It's pretty bad. I became infected with Infected: Trojan:Win32/Alureon.BT, Win32:Jifas-CY, and the others listed (maybe more). Long story short, I'd just watched Harry Potter on dvd, and logged onto the computer to see who he married in the end. I ended up at a Harry Potter encyclipdiea website, and looked it up. Avast went nuts after a few minutes, and showed 4 different virus alerts, and Windows Defender showed 1 as well after I shut down.The virus listed by Defender was Trojan:Win32/Alureon.BT. Avast listed Win32:Jifas-CY, I didn't get the others in time.The last 2 I listed in the title, a "security center alert" claimed it detected these programs trying to acess the internet. It listed one more, but I didn't get it's name in time.I know Alureon is a downloader and backdoor for other viruses, and it basically shuts down security systems, which it's trying to do since windows now thinks I have no anti-virus installed.All of these trojans are listed as "server" and "high risk." I'm not sure a root kit didn't try to make it's way in too.EDIT: I wanted to add a few things in. First, I have XP SP3 set up with multiple accouts, one admin "owner" account and then 1 limited access "user" account. The Viruses came in while the user account was logged on (I am not dumb enough to connect to the internet with an admin account). It seems the Viruses we... Read more

Hello again.I booted into Safe Mode and ran an Avast scan (which took forever) and it was a waste of time. The stupid thing found nothing wrong, and said the system was clean (which is the opposite it says when you log into the limited user account). The computer (and specially that account at least) is definitely infected. Could the viruses be hiding themselves when in safe mode?Should I scan from a Pre-install environment like BartPE? Or from the Regular "Owner" Admin account? I waited 2 days for the stupid program to scan 700gb (painfully slow for a qaud core, though to be excepted in safe mode), and it was useless.Other than running windows defender (which I'm doing now), and maybe trying MBAM, I'm not sure what to do. I'm not expect enough to dive into programs like OTViewIT and Combofix, so I'll need help here. Please, ANY HELP is appreciated. I would rather NOT wipe the drive and reinstall the whole system, but I need to get this figured out.Does no one have any ideas???

Originally Virus Heat installed itself onto my computer then we added CA Security anti virus and anti spyware protection. This cleaned up some of the problem but I had to download spybot search and destroy to find more spyware. There was a lot of Z lob spyware on the computer. I have spent countless hours on the phone with tech support with Time Warner who is my internet provider who suggested the CA Security that isn't picking up on everything. Now when I run a full scan with CA on my computer it says there are no infections but I keep getting a pop up from CA saying there are 33 infected items. The pop up is random- it isn't in connection with the anti-virus scan. They aren't deleted or quarentened, the pop up just states the file name, infection name, type which is "file" and status which is infected. There are 10 win32/vmalum.ccpy, 19 win32/crushpy!generic, 1 win32/vmalum.ccqd, 2 win32/bewschy.d and 1 vmalum.ccqa. The files aren't quarentened so I can't go in and delete them and when I run the scan to clean them up it isn't picking up on them. So CA anti virus scan isn't picking up on these infected files but then again it is because the pop up knows they are there? Does this make sense? Almost like it knows they are there but it can't do anything with them? Time Warner suggested I get a trojan hunter, is this appropriate? Are you familiar with these infection types?

Please help. Along with the above virus? names I have an icon down in the bottom right corner that flashes from a yellow X to a yellow ? with a message telling me I have a Critical System error and to go to that site and download software....

I have AVAST and ran a full scan and did come up with several files with virus/trojan names; these files went into the Virus Chest. I deleted the Temp ones but decided not to delete anything else until I know what is going on. I have since ran the Clean Up through Avast and rescanned twice. Did not show any new stuff although there were 6 files that it was not able to scan. It appears that my C drive has all the problems.

One other thing I did notice was that when I went into Device Manager there is the big yellow question mark next to something identified as optional device and below that another question mark as RAID something. Also, down below the volume game controller file? there are several things that have a big yellow exclamation marks......

Someone showed me last night the process to remove the Adware(??) and the icon and clean this up and but I was not at home so I just reviewed the info, decided that I should be able to do it and just wrote down this website address. So, now I have here but do not know where to get started.................

Hi, was wanting to know what happens to quarantined items if you remove/uninstall the program that has them quarantined?

A:Quarantined items

Some files get deleted with the program, some remain in a seperate folder after the uninstall but as far as I know none will ever get back out when you uninstall the program.

Learning to use a program and cleaning items out of quarantine after confirming they were malware is important.

Hello! I was wondering if anyone could help me out here. My pc has no desktop now and I'm using the PC of my neighbor. My OS is Windows XP SP2, with Kaspersky 6.0 antivirus products. Last time i turned on the pc, it detected explorer.exe with a worm and commanded it to be quarrantined. (So I did). When I do, the PC turned on no desktop, the icons disappered and the system tray and start up. What was left is the desktop background. Now I can't right-click on the desktop and can't enter to any folders. Any help!? I would really appreciate it.

First time posting here so please bear with me. At my office a couple of users workstations were infected with KLEZ.H. I downloaded and ran the fix from f-secure and the computers no longer are infected. However, some infected files were quarantined. Is there a way to repair these? I took one of the files (Adobe Acrobat) out of quarantine and tried to run the KLEZTOOL but it said there was nothing to repair. I then ran NAV which again found the one infected file (Adobe) but could not repair it, so it is again quarantined. Will I ever have use of these files again? Any help and/or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Welcome to TSG jpjp331

Best to have this as a separate topic, so I've split it off.

In most cases quarantined files can simply be deleted and not restored as long as they are not critical to Windows -- and if Windows is running properly, that is usually the case.

But to be sure we would have to know what the file names are and where they are located.

As for Adobe Acrobat, if it is infected, it is best to remove it through Add/Remove programs rather than "delete" it and install the latest version from Adobe.

Over the past few weeks AVG has quarantined viruses on three separate occassions while I was logged into Facebook. I have Windows 7 Home Premium and I'm running AVG 2011 Free Edition. Also I have Ad-Aware installed. Today, AVG detected something called P1KALMIG2KB7FZ.EXE and it also mentioned WIN32/KRYPTIK.RFC. Immediately after AVG gave the warning, Ad-Aware found something called fraudtool.win32.fakereana.a(v). AVG has the .exe file quarantined and required a roboot afterward. Since this is the third time that AVG has detected something I wanted to make sure that my computer is safe and prevent future occurrences.

I have an IQ506 with Vista Home premium. I have Mcafee Enterprise installed. The computer froze and the only thing I could do was turn it off. I turned it back on and I was able to get into safe mode twice, but no more. When I turn it on, it will no longer go into safe mode and will only boot up in normal windows. When I get to the password request it takes the password and then stays in the welcome screen with the little circle twirling indefinitely.
I started another computer that has Vista and put the harddrive from the 506 into an external harddrive enclosure and took a look at it. It says that my c:drive has been quarantined. Everything else on the drive is accessable.
Can and how do I get into the C:drive and retrieve the files I need?

Hello and thank you for helping me in advance. Here is my story:

about a week ago, I got 4 trojan viruses from what I think is a message board of a website (if name is necessary let me know):

Adware.tvmedia trojan

My virus software only announced that they were "detected and deleted". I still ran a virus scan on the whole pc. I ran it again on Safe Mode also. I have 8 "Quarantined files":


I contacted my virus software tech support (close to useless), who advised me to buy their "spyware" program to get rid of these files. Well, the program got rid of the Adware but the files are still under quarantined.

It seems as thought I have the option of deleting them, but I cannot cleaned them. I was wondering if it is OK to delete.

Thank you so much for your support.

A:trojan quarantined

What do you mean by my volume control neends reset? Do you mean there is no sound? Or is it that the volume control in the system tray is not able to control the sound volume anymore?

I assume you are using the sound system on your motherboard. If there is a CD that came with it, try re-installing the sound drivers.
