Unable to Locate Trojans

Q: Unable to Locate Trojans

Greetings,

I've recently come across some trojans that were found by Symantec Endpoint Protection and Avira auto-scans. The notifications popped up after I brought my laptop out of hibernation (which is how I normally leave it when unused).

Symantec tells me that cleaning and quarantining was not successful with a handful of the trojans and is located under:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\ ________

but I cannot find them.

I am currently running Firefox 3.6.3

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you,

Alan

Preferred Solution: Unable to Locate Trojans

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.)

A: Unable to Locate Trojans

Hello,did Avira say they were quarantined?? Do you have these 2 AV's active??C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\_______ <<---- This is what it shows as a location??Let's gt another opinion...Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.46) and save it to your desktop.Before you save it rename it to say zztoy.exe alternate download link 1alternate download link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.Exit MBAM when done.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.If Malwarebytes Anti-Malware results in any error messages, check the Help file's list of error codes within its program folder first. If you do not find any information, please refer to Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions, Frequently Asked Questions. If the error you are receiving is not in the list, please report it here so the research team can investigate.Some types of malware will target Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools to keep them from running properly.

Do you still have the installation CD that you used to install the OS. If so I would try either doing a repair install of the OS by booting to the CD or go to the recovery console by booting to the cd and run a chkdsk /r and see if it can find and repair any bad sectors of the drive that may have been point to the DLL location.

Hi there,

May i ask if there is a problem in my system, virus infection or malware if i experience this:

Every time i start up my system i get this error pop up:

What's your OS.

It could be an infection, scan with Malwarebytes and / or SuperAntispyware.

Alternatively, it may just be a video driver problem.

Hi,

You may have an issue with DNS resolution of specific sites. This happens from time to time, and is normally an ISP issue. Let's see this:

Start, Run, CMD

TRACERT <URL of problem site>

<URL of problem site> is the actual URL of the site you're having issues with.

Right click in the command prompt, use Select All, and paste the results into a message here.

A:ypager.exe - unable to locate dll help!!!!!

Hiyas

Looks like you're using either WinNT or Win2000, so Msconfig is out of the question. Looks like Regedit is the only other option unless you have something like TweakUI loaded.

Click Start -> Run -> Type Regedit -> Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Open the Software key -> Scroll down to Microsoft and open it -> Windows -> Current version -> Run. Check what's starting in the Run key, look for your ypager and delete the reg value. That should sort it out hopefully.

Good luck

A:Unable to Locate Component

Your first move should be to turn on Windows Update and get your system updated. You are still on SP2 which is no longer supported by Microsoft, the Windows Update will get you up to SP3. That alone may cure the problem.

Follow this guide to slipstream your copy of XP with SP3, that can then be used to run the System File Checker which will replace any missing or damaged files.

http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/Slipstreaming_Windows_XP_Service_Pack_3.html

To run the system file checker Click on Start and type sfc /scannow (exactly as written here with the gap) into the search box and hit enter. Follow the prompts and insert the slipstreamed disc when requested.

I was browsing the net the other day and window popped up saying that AVG had detected a virus in C:/Documents and Settings and that a scan should be run to get rid of it. I shut down all of my programs and ran the anti-virus to search in C:/Documents and Settings. It came up empty. I then checked for updates, found one, and then restarted AVG and had it scan the whole C drive while I did some housework and showered. Coming back to the computer about an hour later I saw that AVG had "Encountered an unknown error and had to be terminated". Ok I thought, so I restarted the computer and ran AVG again and let it run while doing my homework. Again, it crashed!

Good Day Friends,

I have an application installed on a Windows 7 machine at office. The application installs VS 2008 Redistributable files during its installations. The installation works fine.

On the launch, the application crashes. On reviewing the Event Viewer, I can see "MFC90U.dll" listed under one of the "Data" tags.

I tried copying all the MS 2008 related files and manifests to the local directory. This also didn't work.

There are other products on the machine which are supposedly using earlier versions on VS Redistributable files. These applications work fine.

Is there any chance that the co-existence of the multiple versions of the VS Redistributable files is causing any issues?

Is there any way of specifying manifests in the local directory for the missing DLLs so that application can locate them?

Please advice. I am stuck on it for 3 days now.

Thanks & Regards!
Pankaj Dwivedi.

A:Application is unable to locate MFC90U.dll and others

Before doing anything else I would reinstall or repair install (if the app supports it)
The application that is the source of the error.
You may want to run the setup or installer file as an admin and temporarily disabling UAC for the duration of the repair/reinstall.

It sounds like the file simply didn't write.

You can also try installing the latest visual C++ library and see if that resolves your problem.

Hi Folks, I have a Dell laptop, service pack 3. It is about five years old but it has been running smoothly, never had a virus or any other problem with it. I just use email and some surfing, itunes and photos, very light use. A few days ago when I tried to shut down I got a message that said something about unable to locate component "msoxlgbdru.dll and it would not shut down. I was falling alseep, so I just pushed the button to turn it off, which I have never done before. The next day when I tried to turn it on a screen came up that said "We are sorry for the inconvenience, windows did not start successfully" and then it said to start in safe mode and restore to last known good configuration. I selected safe mode, and a screen came up with a box that says "This application has failed to start because msoxlgbdru.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. It says winlogon.exe at the top. Then it just sits there and never starts in safe mode.

What can I do?

Also, I know how to do regular maintenance, disc defragmentation and virus and spyware scans, but I don't understand all of the scary lingo so if you have any advice, please talk to me like I am five LOL.

I *really* appreciate any advice! Thanks!

Assuming you have a good internet connection (meaning it's connecting/downloading from everywhere else ok)... there's nothing you can do about that error. It's Netscape's way of saying the page or file does not exist.

In light of the recent Microsoft "hacker" problems, I'm sure it will work if you go back and try again now. Especially if it was one of Microsoft's direct links. There was a period of 3 days where nobody was able to get anything from any of Microsoft's sites. Should be okay now...

Oh yes, one more word of advice. Microsoft doesn't like it when users go to their site with Netscape. I mean that only IE sees certain download items/buttons in their pages. Perhaps it's their way of feeling superior, or they use certain browser plugins not found in Netscape... so just use IE whenever trying to download anything from Microsoft, especially automatic updates.

Recently, I began experiencing frequent pop-up messages stating that the SSAUTORN.EXE app failed to start because ccL60U.dll was not found. Some Google messages indicate this may be linked to a problem with Norton (I have Norton IS 2008 installed). Any way to get rid of this annoying pop-up?

Hello,

I?ve been trying to install a Virtual Machine (VM Ware) onto my laptop which has the Windows Vista OS (32bit) however i?m unsuccessful as it keeps telling me that I already have a VM installed and that I should go via control panel to uninstall it first before installing the newer Virtual Machiene.

The problem is that I cannot see any VM programms in the Install/Uninstall list.

Can anyone PLEASE help and tell me were else I should be looking as it is driving me mad.

I?m sorry if this seems like a very simple problem but as you may have gathered I?m rather inexperianced when it comes to IT

Many thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give

So, I uninstalled IE and now I can't boot up. I'm getting an error that it's unable to locate component iertutil.dll. I found a fix to a similar problem but I can't make it work for me.

I'm supposed to use the winxp os system install disk. Go to start, run and type in: sfc /scannow. This is supposed to check and reinstall lost or corrupt files. The problem is I can't boot up to a point where I can select run. I can't even get into safe mode

If I boot with the system disk I can get into system repair. Is there a way to do this from DOS?

A:unable to locate component iertutil.dll

I just discovered that I can hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete and get to Run thru the File menu of that window. I typed in the sfc /scannow command but when I hit Run I get basically the same error - This application has failed to start because iertutil.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem.

Hi guys:

We have 3 computers connected to a hub forming a LAN using a DSL modem for shared internet access. One of the computers is a server and the other 2 are clients. A few weeks ago, one of the clients began receiving a recurring message: "Netscape unable to locate server xxxx" (the x's represent any website). Prior to a few weeks ago, no problem. We have attempted just about every trick in the book (reinstalling Netscape, removing and reinstalling everything in "Network", checking TCP/IP stacks, etc.). You name it, we tried it. We are using Internetshare's "All_Aboard" software. We've corresponding with them on numerous occasions, but they have no answers. We've browsed Netscape's online knowledge base at: http://help.netscape.com/ with no luck. What are 3 perplexed techies to do? As we said, only one client on this small LAN is afflicted with that dreaded error message. If someone has asolution, he/she will be given an all-expense paid vacation to the Bill Gate's estate. (just kidding) Seriously, any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:NETSCAPE UNABLE TO LOCATE SERVER...

Did you try reinstalling the NIC on the client? Are you running NT/2000? If so, how is the administration set up? Was there one point in time a few weeks ago when it suddenly stopped finding the server? Where or what was the client doing? Or just out of the blue one morning when user logged in?

I can log on to my PC as one user but when I try to switch users I get the following error message:

I also cannot save files to a shared network location or view any other users files whilst logged on except the person who is logged on.

The only way I can switch users is to restart the pc. I had a reply from the Windows XP Magazine forum which suggested I might have a trojan as there is a trojan process for csrss.exe.

I have had help from the HJT group and no malware was found on my PC. I've checked all windows files using sfc but I still have the problem.

I believe a Repair Install may be in order, you are experiencing multiple issues.

Perform a Repair Installation

Configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive. Then insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

If you have xp sp2 installed it needs to be incorporated into your xp disk or it will not offer the repair option only the clean install.

2. Ran eset online scanner and it found/deleted pc-off.bat.
3. MalwareBytes pops up with an alert "successfully blocked access to potentially malicious websites"
then it gives an IP address.(Both incoming and outgoing)
4. CLI.EXE(.NET Framework) error on startup.

I have little or no experience with Microsoft Access and I need to be dope-slapped. I had no idea how to create a database so I "played around" with the program.

I tried a couple of times to create a database and saved them both times. I was able to find both files so I developed this false sense of confidence. I selected the option to use the wizard, chose some sample category, the name of which I don't remember, added 3 categories to a blank database, changed the names of all 3 and proceded to type-in about 300 entries. May I add that I don't know how to type so this took quite some time. Periodically I would click file, save, and this is what I did before I finally closed the file. Of course, fool that I am, I have no idea what, if anything, it was saved AS. I recall that I did not choose a primary key, or whatever it's called.

I am using windows xp and am unable to find a list of last files opened. i have no idea what the file is called. I have tried search using many word possibilities to no avail. I opened the Access list of databases and I find nothing familiar. I even tried opening each one but again, I can't bring up anything familiar. Is there any way to find this file or could it be lost forever?

Sign me "inACCESSable."
 

A:unable to locate access file

go to Start, Find, Files or Folders and in the search field, type in *.mdb, then in the Date tab check the Find All Files modified during the previous ??? days where you specifiy how many days ago it was when you worked on this database.

You should find it then.

Make sure you are looking in all local harddrives, as well as any networked drives you may have.

I'll add more information on the problem and what I have tried so far. 
This computer has had the problem of looping on updates for months now. It would get updates but after restart, while it was trying to configure them it would say download failed and revert everything. I spent days on that trying to uninstall updates and reinstall them. I got it to where it had all but 2 updates and couldn't get any further. My father in law didn't want to have to reinstall all of his programs so he opted to put it off for a while to see if I came up with a fix. In the meantime, more updates tried to come in and failed. Also it looks like they installed office 2007. That may have been when this new problem started. They also installed adobe flash the same day.  
 
This is what I have tried, in order.
 
1. Last known good configuration, nothing.
 
2. Malwarebytes
That found several things but nothing that looked too bad and removing them didn't help. 
 
3. Startup Repair from Install disk (said found no problems)
 
4. System from Install Disk
I thought this one was going to work. There were lots of restore points. I picked one just before they installed office. It ran for a while then said the restore point was no good and reverted. No problem, I could just pick another. Nope. When I went back to restore all the previous restore points were just gone. 
 
5. Clean boot
 
6. SFC /Scannow 
Found some errors. Said it couldn't fix them... Read more
