Post by cobalt on Fri Oct 22, 2010 3:22 pm

I have been infected with thinkpoint. I am able to boot in safe mode and have malwarebytes but it can not connect to the net to update. Please any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I attempted to attach the files and now get a message stating the uploaded file is not valid. They are in .txt format. Thank you for your help.

When I attempt to check for updates the computer locks up and I was forced to shut down and reboot. I ran the scan without getting the update and nothing was found.

Hello.

Please re-open Malwarebytes, click the Update tab, and click Check for Updates. Then, click the Scanner tab, select Perform Quick Scan, and press Scan.

Post the new log when done.

Hello,
I am currently unable to connect to the internet through the infected computer. I attempted to update malwarebytes. When I try the program locks up. I left it open attempting to update for 10 to 15 minutes and the progress bar did not even start to move. I appreciate all your time and help.

Done?

Post by cobalt on Thu Oct 28, 2010 9:54 am

Well I managed to get MBMA to update and it found 2 infections and cleaned them. Thinkpoint no longer loads when windows start. Is there anything else I have to do to make sure that this problem is fully resolved? Thank you so much for your help. I greatly appreciate your time.
