win32/patched.GB does not want to go away after running MAM

Post by sherman on 23rd January 2011, 8:18 pm

HI there,

My AVG started popping up warnings every few seconds about the win32/patched.gb virus. I have gone into safe maode with networking - and downloaded MAM and it reveals that there are no viruses on my PC. But when I install AVG again... the windows START POPPING UP. aNY IDEAS ?

Hi.Welcome.

You have a bad infection.Lets see what we can do.

ComboFix will not run until AVG is uninstalled as a protective measure against the anti-virus. This is because AVG "falsely" detects ComboFix (or its embedded files) as a threat and may remove them. If some of ComboFix's files are removed by AVG, it will not perform its routines properly and the developer has determined this can cause damaging or "unpredictable results". This is an issue with AVG and since it cannot be effectively disabled before running ComboFix, the developer has chosen not to allow his tool to run until AVG is uninstalled first in order to avoid any possible issues.


Run the AVG Removal tool.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]



Download Combofix from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and place it on your Desktop

* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.Combofix may be slow to start and appear to be doing nothing before it starts scanning.Just leave it,it will start.

You can get help on disabling your protection programs here : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.


Caution.....
Never use this program to remove files.Only use it with help from an experienced user.Wrongful use can damage your computer.This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use. ComboFix SHOULD NOT be used unless requested by a qualified helper

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with DrWeb-CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to start the program. An "Express Scan of your PC" notice will appear.
  • Under "Start the Express Scan Now", Click "OK" to start. This is a short scan that will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the Yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it.
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
  • Choose the "Scan tab" and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis"
  • Back at the main window, click "Select drives" (a red dot will show which drives have been chosen)
  • Then click the "Start/Stop Scanning" button (green arrow on the right) and the scan will start.
  • When done, a message will be displayed at the bottom advising if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can see the icon next to the files found. If so, click it, then click the next icon right below and select "Move incurable".
    (This will move it to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if it can't be cured)
  • Next, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

Running the dr web as we speak. So far 2 cured and 2 deleted :-) now doing the second scan. What software do you run to monitor malware in the future? Any recommendations? I am getting anew pc in about a week and it will be running ultimate 64 bit. Any suggestions? Steve

Ok.All done.I see no more malware.Log looks good! All those detections are either in quarantine or system restore, both of which we'll be cleaning out in just a minute. Congratulations, well done.


Go to :
Start > Run then copy and paste the following highlighted (blue) text below into the box and click OK.


ComboFix /uninstall






Over the course of the fix you've used a variety of special tools to help with the cleaning process - none of these are of any use to you now that you're clean, and it's best not to have them hanging around on your computer. OTC is a small program that removes all the leftover tools and logs from cleanup of malware.


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


Double-click OTC to run it. (Vista users, please right click on OTC and select "Run as an Administrator")

Click on the CleanUp! button and follow the prompts.

You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process, choose Yes.

After the reboot all the tools we used should be gone.
Note: Some more recently created tools may not yet be removed by OTC. Feel free to manually delete any tools it leaves behind.


Here are some tips to reduce the potential for malware infection in the future; I strongly suggest that you read them and take them to heart so that you don't have to endure the process of cleaning your computer again.
