Windows System Defender infection - Cannot access HJthis

Post by RohanD on 27th October 2009, 6:27 am

Hello,
So came back home last night to find Windows System defender on my computer. System Restore failed. Cannot launch any of the anti-virus programs (Norton, Spyware doctor, Malwarebytes). Downloaded HJ This ....runs for 2 seconds then shuts down. When I try to run it again the message "Windows cannot access specfied device,file, path. You mau not have appropriate permissions to access the item" shows up. Same problem with Malwarebytes. Taskmanager and access to antivirus manufacturer websites has also been disabled. No idea how to proceed as I have never come across something so intricate. Will be eternally grateful for any winning suggestions.
Thanks in advance

Ok so I dont think SystemLook works either.
It ran for a while & then gave the log as pasted below. When I try to run it again it gives the same "Cannot access file" message.

Also tried DDS. Did not work. Looks like a re-format may be the only option?

  • Click on Avenger.zip to open the file
  • Extract avenger.exe to your desktop
2. Copy all the text contained in the code box below to your Clipboard by highlighting it and pressing (Ctrl+CCrying


Files to delete:

3. Now, start The Avenger program by clicking on its icon on your desktop.

Hello.

  • Download combofix from here
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:

    * Tools->Options->Main tab
    * Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

    2. During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:





    3. It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.
    4. Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.
    5. Close any open browsers.
    6. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

  • We need to disable your local AV (Anti-virus) before running Combofix.
  • See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for how to disable your AV.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe.
  • Follow the prompts. NOTE:
  • ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
    ***It's strongly recommended to have the Recovery Console installed before doing any malware removal.***

    **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will automatically proceed with its scan.


  • The Recovery Console provides a recovery/repair mode should a problem occur during a Combofix run.



  • Allow ComboFix to download the Recovery Console.
  • Accept the End-User License Agreement.
  • The Recovery Console will be installed.
  • You will then get this next prompt that asks if you want to continue the malware scan, select yes



  • Allow combofix to run
  • Post C:\combofix.txt back here.

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
