Solved Can not turn on "Automatic Update" after Virus Infection

Post by silverb on 18th February 2010, 7:13 am

Dear GreekPolice Experts,

Below is my "problem"

First I go to Sercurity Center .
It does not allow me to set up change to "Automatic Update" and gives me a message

*****
We're sorry. The security center could not change your Automatic Update settings. To try changing these setting yourself, go to System in Control Panel. On the Automatic Update tab, select Automatic (recommended), and then click OK

********
I go there (open Automatic Update tab) It does not allow me to turn on (button is kind of "grey out" = no operation available to user)
********


To make story more clear: Why I noticed this ...

Since I was trying to install a program from Adode for trying out (download from Adode is OK but when the program expands to desktop - procedure of Adode program before install - I got the message ... something like not enough space or do not have write privilege ... both are untrue ... because I am the owner and a lof of space available on my hardisk ) => It raises my alarm .... And I use the Malwares Bytes to scan my computer .... The program detected some malwares : The names as I remember were:

Trojan.FakeAV
Trojan Fake Alert
Trojan Downloader

The Malware Byte quarantined them then I removed them out off my computer .

But after that ... I saw that I am unable to turn on AUTOMATIC UPDATE & the sympton (not enough space and/or do not have write previledge) is still there .

I am afraid that my anti_virus & anti_malwares programs could not remove those " thing" cleanly ... It seems some of its ill infection are still there and I have no idea of what to do next ...

Please help .

Regards,
SB

Dear Belahzur,

Thank you for your help & guidances
Below is my MBAM logfile

Note:
- I used MBAM pro version which is already installed on my PC (and I updated before scan) ... Is that ok? Or I have to download version MBAM - which from your link?
- I observed that the MBAM detected the winlogon (hijack-this) as a "malware" too => Is that all right?
- I went to "Automatic Update" to see ... The button is still unactive ( ie no operation allowed)


Regards,
SB
