MalwareBytes has Brought My Computer to a Crawl

Post by xDavidx on 21st November 2009, 5:28 am

Hey Guys,

I just found this site, it looks awesome, and I would like to thank all of you in advance for your hard work on everyone's problems! It really helps non-tech savvy people like myself to have a helping hands. Now, onto the problem...

I got smashed with both the Security Tool AND Secure Defender viruses yesterday. I found some manual fixes from my friend's computer (since I couldn't use my own) and went in through safe mode and deleted the programs, as well as the reg keys. After I could use my comp again, I downloaded Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and ran the scan. At the end of the 3 hour scan, I had 978 files that were quarantined.

I thought all was good until I ran my computer again today, and startup took 15-20 minutes, and some of the shortcuts to computer games have been deleted, and I can't open some executable files. All in all, my computer is running at about 25% speed. I have a feeling the MalwareBytes quarantined some useful stuff that is affecting my computers performance. (By the way, I have had this computer for 5 years, and have never had a speed problem until last night).

Here is the HijackThis log:

Please download ComboFix from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Rename ComboFix.exe to commy.exe before you save it to your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools A guide to do this can be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • Click Start>Run then copy paste the following command into the Run box & click OK "%userprofile%\desktop\commy.exe" /stepdel
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console


Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


  • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the contents of C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

When I run combofix, an alert comes up that says "ALERT! It is NOT safe to continue!" And says I may be compromised by a virus called "Virut"/

It doesn't let me complete it.

Your computer is infected with a dangerous infection:

We have hit a dead end. Please tell me when you have completed a reformat and reinstall.

I am sorry for the bad news. I do not understand why these mean people make such harsh viruses, and I wish there was a way to clean your system without everything being damaged. But, the problem is, cleaning the system, most files will be damaged. It is like trying to clean up a city that just had a tornado or hurricane run through it. Takes rebuilding, and time to set back up.
