iexplore Windows Security

Q: iexplore Windows Security

Hi all
We are getting this security pop-up on client machines.
There was a group to add "aadg.windows.net.nsatc.net" in trusted site (which is no longer required).
I have removed the policy but this pop-up is still coming up every time IE is launched.
How can I get rid of this pop-up.
Many Thanks

Preferred Solution: iexplore Windows Security

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.)

Attached are two images. This pops up and audio with a warning. I called the number and it claims to be Microsoft but seems scamish? Is this for real and if not how do I get rid of it?
I have run malware bytes and avg virus scan.  It removes stuff and quarantines but keeps coming back.

Good morning. Yesterday I contracted some kind of virus. Normally I am pretty good about avoiding them, but apparently not this time. I've been running in Safe Mode for the last day trying to figure out a way to get out from under it, but like so many others here on the forum, the virus will not let me run ANY anti-virus software nor will it let me perform any scans. I've tried deleting various suspicious files/processes but no luck.

Any assistance you could provide would be immensely appreciated.

Best regards,
Benjamin

Hi everyone. I am very excited that I found this site. So here we go. Yesterday morning I got the black screen with a warning message that I was in danger. Then System Security opened and started scanning. Could not use Task Manager, Norton or Spy Sweeper. Went to safe mode and fooled around. I was able to remove the System Security and the black screen by using Spy Sweeper. I then found a couple files in the registry that were associated and removed them as well. Tried to download Malwarebytes, Spybot. Wouldn't allow me to install. In safe mode I could install but not run. Removed Norton, Spy Sweeper said it was corrupted and removed that as well. Installed AVG, Windows Defender and ran them. Helped enough that I could also get Malwarebytes to work and ran that as well as Windows Malicious Software Tool and Windows Defender. I noticed that I could now use internet explorer and firefox sometimes. I could also use Malwarebytes but had to leave the name changed or else it would be blocked again. That plus the weird random audio I heard and the multiple iexplor.exe told me there is still a problem. Have made more progress today. However I still have iexplore.exe opening automatically and then reopening after I terminate it. I also am still not able to install everything and run it such as spybot.

A:win32trojan.tdss was system security, iexplore.exe etc

Hello.

I see evidence of a rootkit infection that appears to be leftovers but you should still know the nature of this infection. There are other infections from the log as well that we need to take care of.

Unfortunatly One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

We can still clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards. If you wish to continue follow the steps below.

Then, please take a GMER scan for me.

The primary symptoms are listed in the title. By "Security apps", I mean any anti-malware programs that I attempt to run outside of safe mode. The programs WILL operate in safe mode.

Even in safe mode, "iexplore.exe" will open without my input and keep re-opening after being closed through task manager.

Google searches are hijacked in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. I suspect that it has to do with the Conduit Toolbar, which I never knowingly installed but that appears to be installed anyway.

As to the diagnostic tools I was directed to use:

GMER.EXE COULD NOT BE RUN TO COMPLETION.

Greetings,

I picked up a virus (ropfnqz.exe) that Norton AntiVirus (NAV) detected and "cleared." However, every time I opened Internet Explorer (IE), the NAV warning would appear again. Also, the format of Google search results changed (the ads no longer appear on the right). Note: the Google home page did not change.

Researching the virus, I removed ropfnqz.exe and the associated "monhftd.dll" file.

Now, an error appears when I attempt to open IE: "Windows cannot find C:/...iexplore.exe."

I have:
-- Reset IE through the Control Panel
-- Deleted and reinstalled IE7
-- Installed IE8 beta
-- Tried to start IE in safe mode (except this time the error is: ""Windows cannot find "null."
-- Ran Norton SystemWorks

The same error occurs even when the iexplore.exe file is double-clicked from Windows Explorer or started from <Start><Run>.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

for quite awhile now both my computers but they seem to work pretty good although alittle slow. but when you go to shut them down, both of them a box comes up and says ending program where you can wait for it to end the program or you can click on end now. well it doesn't matter which you do most of the time the computer won't shut down. it just keeps going back to the end program box. It is always this program--iexplore.exe always that one. One time I looked into the task manager and it had like 5 or 6 of the iexplore.exe in the application part. anyway it is getting quite annoying. I ran asquared when this was happening and it caught what it said was a trojan (didn't write it down) I deleted it and it seemed to work for awhile. But now it is back to the same ole thing. Can someone enlighten me on what might be wrong? It is on both of my computers.

I also would like to add if it helps, it seems like the last two weeks or so when I doulbleclick on an icon to open it such as internet explorer sometimes I click on it and the hour glass comes up like it is thinking and going to open it but then doesn't, so I double click it again and the same thing. Some times it doesn't open at all and other times it does, can you help with that also??

I recently upgraded one of our workstations from Window's 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro and somehow during that upgrade, the executable for internet explorer 11 and many of it's core .dll files disappeared. So I then decided to copy the internet explorer directories
from C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer , and C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer respectively. I was able to get the program to run however, I cannot set it as my default browser. It does not come up as a choice in the "set default programs"
menu. Also just to be safe, I did run the SFC.exe to check the file system for errors, and It did not find any. Is there a way to fix this? Also is there a reason why program files for internet explorer would sudden disappear after upgrading to Windows
10?

I recently downloaded a program called ccProxy. My add-on WOT warned me that this was a bad site, but I downloaded it anyway. I then got a Google redirecting virus and a virus that kept on disabling my Microsoft Security Center and would close Microsoft security essentials whenever I tried to open it. I went on safe mode and I ran a bunch of scanners such as MalwareBytes, Super Anti-Spyware, Windows Security Essentials (I can open it on safe mode), AVG 2011 and Panda Active Scan 2011. After I destroyed a bunch of viruses nothing happened. How do I fix this? If you need my Hijackthis log I can give it to you.

Hello all,

Thanks in advance for any help with this. I am having problems with my memory resources and have been prompted with a few Low Memory errors. As of right now I am using 32 % of my memory with only a few programs running, it has been as high as 55%. My first action to find out what was causing the problem was to open my task manager and look at the resource manager to see what programs were running. At the top of the list was a program called iexplore.exe. I then typed "iexplore.exe" into google with the hope of finding out about it. I found this site and a post authored by someone asking about the program, the replies instructed the author to download hijackthis, which I have now done, and to post a scan log, which I am going to do in this thread, unfortunately that is all the useful information I could understand from the replies. So here I am and below is the scan log.

Thanks again for any help!

Hello and welcome to the forums

My name is Katana and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

Please observe these rules while we work:
1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
2. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
3. Please continue to respond until I give you the "All Clear"

If you can do those three things, everything should go smoothly :D

I apologize for the delay in responding, but as you can probably see the forums are quite busy
and sometimes a post manages to slip by us.
Unfortunately there are far more people needing help than there are helpers.

Greetings,

I picked up a virus (ropfnqz.exe) that Norton AntiVirus (NAV) detected and "cleared." However, every time I opened Internet Explorer (IE), the NAV warning would appear again. Also, the format of Google search results changed (the ads no longer appear on the right). Note: the Google home page did not change.

Researching the virus, I removed ropfnqz.exe and the associated "monhftd.dll" file.

Now, an error appears when I attempt to open IE: "Windows cannot find C:/...iexplore.exe."

I have:
-- Reset IE through the Control Panel
-- Deleted and reinstalled IE7
-- Installed IE8 beta
-- Tried to start IE in safe mode (except this time the error is: ""Windows cannot find "null."

The same error occurs even when the iexplore.exe file is double-clicked from Windows Explorer or started from <Start><Run>.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

The problem I have in IE is that every time I try to click on a link to open it, I get and error message saying IExplore.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows. You will need to restart the program; and error log is being created. The other problem is that I get the windows installer window trying to install something, but never tells me what it's installing. I have Spybot S&E and I'm running windows 2K professional.

Hi, I've seen some threads online before about the Iexplore.exe problems and heard it being an adware problem. I've tried many times to get rid of the problem but it's always there laughing at me. I never use Internet explorer even when I first got my laptop. Recently the Iexplore.exe has been ruining my comp. It flairs up starting at about 8k mem to as high as 80,000k! It never opens a window though except from time to time I do hear movie trailers or commercials play in the background, but still no window. I can't play any games either cause Iexplore.exe keeps opening new windows and causes the game to minimize.

I've tried ewido, Ad-Aware, malwarebyte's, CCcleaner, but none of them work. If someone could please help me out it'd be great. I have my hijackthis log as follows. Anything and everything that could be cleaned up let me know. I just want the use of my computer back without going MAD!!

Hello to every one at the forum, I'm new and in need of some assistance.
Now I have done some bit of research on this, and none of it seemed to have givin me a solution. Recently I noticed that in my process manager, when ever I have one Internet Explorer process running, in the manager it will show two Iexplore.exe, or if I have two then the manager will show three. Sometimes, even if I close off some tabs, the explore processes will stay. Now I'm pretty sure this can't be a virus since I ran a scan on Malware Bytes, and Microsoft essentials, and didn't find anything. I also know that as soon as I close Internet explorer, all the instances of it running in the process manager also end, so there are no hidden IE processes running in the background. I also know that this wasn't all ways happening, it just started happening recently. I'm not 100% sure it's not a virus/malware/trojan, or any of that sort, but that's why I came to TSF for help :).

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you TSF.

Hi.

A few days ago my desktop, running Windows XP, became infected with a virus.

A fake 'Windows Recovery' program flashed up, telling me I had allsorts of issues with my machine, my desktop went black, hiding everything and tried its best to stop me running any of my programs.

I have run RKill, then Malwarebytes and 'Unhide' to recover my desktop and although this has stopped the main issues I still believe there are problems, notably with 'iexplore.exe' showing up in the task manager processes.

I understand that this is common place if you're running IE, but I am not, this process starts itself and takes up a large amount of ram, sometimes as much as 150-200MB.

I've tried running other antivirus, spyware, regfix programs to help with this probelm, to no avail.

It's driving me a bit mental as I'm just not sure if my PC is safe to use or not.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For the last couple weeks my Symantec seems to catch a trojan during realtime protection almost every day. I figured I was fine as long as it kept catching them, but now I've got another problem.

When I try to start IE, either from the start menu, quicklaunch or the .exe in the folder I get "Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Well, the file is there.....so I don't know what's up.

Thanks for any help. I'd hate to throw this laptop out the window.

Hello sbrig420 and welcome to TSF,

Download CWShredder and run it. Click on 'I Agree' button if you agree and check for updates. Click on 'Fix' (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you) and then click OK. If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here. Let it finish the scan and then hit Next and Exit.

Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link doesn't work) and install it. Do not run it yet.

Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu). Set the program up as follows:
*Click "Options..."
*Move the arrow down to "Standard CleanUp!"
*Uncheck the following:
-Delete Newsgroup cache
-Delete Newsgroup Subscriptions
-Scan local drives for temporary files
Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program. Reboot/logoff when prompted.
Note: CleanUp! deletes EVERYTHING out of your temp/temporary folders, it does not make backups. If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup of these before running CleanUp! If you have a 64 bit Operating System do NOT run Cleanup and let me know as we will use another utility

Please run another online scan at Panda and post the results here for our review, along with a new HijackThis log.

This has been happening for sometime now and is finally getting to me. iexplore.exe which is internet explorer I am told. anyway when I am at the desktop and want ot doubleclick the E for internet explorer and get on the net I doubleclick it and the hour glass comes up like it is going to take to my home page but then the hour glass disapprears and it doesn't go anywhere and I am still at the desktop. SO I doubleclick it again and the same thing this usually happens 4 to 5 times and then it finally takes me to the internet. once there it works fine. however everytime I clicked it even tho it didn't take me there it opened up iexplore.exe in the task manager under processes so now there is say 4 to 5 iexplore.exe processes running so when I want to shut down a box always comes up saying ending program you can end it now by pressing the button that says end now but the box comes back up, if you end it as many times as it is in the processes like 4 or 5 times then XP will finally shut down. I tried right clicking the e for internet explorer and then clicking open but it still doesn't until you do it a frw times then its the same when you try to shut down. I tried going to programs and clicking it there but same thing. Went into add and remove programs and then add/remove windows components and reset internet explorer and that didnt help.

Hi there guys, I appreciate I am new, but Google led me here and I would really appreciate some help. I actually have my dissertation coming up in 3 weeks time and now is the most crucial time I could ever need my laptop, and it's got infected! As it stands, I cannot close the Internet Explorer window that I have up, while there are 9 iexplore.exe's running in my task manager, none of which can be ended (pressing End Process simply does nothing). There are also random audio adverts playing in the background as well, which I have never encountered before.

I did Google the problem first, and it appears that many people have had the problem, though I think it manifests itself differently on a case-by-case basis. I cannot understand any of the logs that people have been asked to post on forums myself, so I cannot look into my own laptop, hence my post here. Any help would be massively appreciated.

I have followed all instructions in your stickied post, and the relevant files are attached. I have done computer programming, but the information contained in these files is complete gibberish to me, so I am none the wiser. If you consider the appropriate action to just be a complete re-install of Windows, this is obviously not preferred but it is fine by me.

Thank you very much.

A couple days ago, this started. iexplore.exe is allways running on my task manager, and when I endtask it, it just starts up again a few seconds later. I don't know if this is a related problem, but also, regularly, maybe once a minute or so, whatever program I am using will get unselected, as if I switched to a different window, but I didn't. As I type this everynow and then I have to click back onto my firefox window to continue typing.Additionally, when I logged on this morning my computer seemed to have switched to a 24hour clock when It had not been that way before, even during the previous issues I was having. I've tried running spybot, adaware, malwarebytes, stinger, etc. Problems are still happening, so figured I'd come here with a hijackthis log and hope you more knowledgable people then I can save my computer. heh.Sorry if I was bad at explaining something, and thank you in advance for the help.Hijackthis log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 02:05, on 2008-11-05Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16735)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Awar...

Hi, I'm having a problem with pesky malware of some kind. It started with bogus "Windows Security Alert" messages, "Antivirus Software Alert" and "Infiltration Alerts", and "Security Warning / Application cannot be executed. The file xxxx.xxx is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?". It would also redirect me to different websites in IE8.Based on that info, I found the sticky forum on here that deals with that virus, and I ran RSKill, MalwareBytes, and also Spybot, etc. but the problems come back after the next reboot. I ran through the removal routine several times, but it keeps coming back.At the present time, the computer takes a very long time loading upon reboot, and IE8 blanks out whatever site address I type in -- it replaces the address with "http:///" and returns with a "the address is not valid" page. At the moment, the "Infiltration Alerts" are not happening, so I don't know if that first virus is gone, but it let another one in the door in the meantime, or if this is just a different manifestation of the original virus?I tried running DDS.SCR program as asked in the Preparation Guide. But it just flashed me the little black window with the DDS introduction for a few seconds, but never gave me the DDS.txt or Attach.txt results. I tried several times, without success.I was able to run the Gmer program on the second attempt. The first attempt ended after a... Read more

Windows System Restore won't create restore points. "System Restore not able to create a restore point. Please restart your computer, and then run system Restore again," and Windows XP Security Center notifications are constantly disabled by a PUM virus/trojan. And GMER hangs and does not comoplete or crashes my system with blue screen. Malwarebytes AntiMalware does however repeatedly find and quarantines the PUM.

Google Chrome v21.0.118079 fails to auto install Adobe Flash player and Google Chrome Settings always resets Background Apps from Disabled to Enabled on system restart. I researched and just found a command line command to keep Background apps from launching.
