Hi there! Welcome to the forums.

TDSSKiller Scan

Please download and run TDSSKiller to your desktop as outlined below:

Doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then click on Change parameters.

For Windows XP, double-click to start.
For Vista or Windows 7, do a right-click on the program, select Run as Administrator to start, & when prompted Allow to run.



-------------------------

Check the boxes beside Verify Driver Digital Signature and Detect TDLFS file system, then click OK.



------------------------

Click the Start Scan button.



-----------------------

If a suspicious object is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue
If you get the warning about a file UnsignedFile.Multi.Generic or LockedFile.Multi.Generic please choose
Skip and click on Continue




----------------------

If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results and offer three (3) options.

Ensure Cure is selected, then click Continue => Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
Note: If Cure is not available, please choose Skip instead, do not choose Delete unless instructed.





--------------------

A report will be created in your root directory, (usually C:\ folder) in the form of "TDSSKiller.[Version]_[Date]_[Time]_log.txt". Please copy and paste its contents on your next reply.
Sometimes these logs can be very large, in that case please attach it or zip it up and attach it.

-------------------

Here's a summary of what to do if you would like to print it out:

If a suspicious object is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue
If you get the warning about a file UnsignedFile.Multi.Generic or LockedFile.Multi.Generic please choose
Skip and click on Continue

If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results and offer three (3) options.

Ensure Cure is selected, then click Continue => Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
Note: If Cure is not available, please choose Skip instead, do not choose Delete unless instructed.

Cool...

ComboFix scan

Please download ComboFix by sUBs
From BleepingComputer.com

Please save the file to your Desktop.

Important information about ComboFix


After the download:

  • Close any open browsers.
  • Very Important: Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results". Please visit here if you don't know how.
  • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
  • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until ComboFix has completely finished.
  • If there is no Internet connection after running ComboFix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.

Running ComboFix:

  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When ComboFix finishes, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the report, which will launch or be found at "C:\Combo-Fix.txt" in your next reply.

Troubleshooting ComboFix

Safe Mode:

If you still cannot get ComboFix to run, try booting into Safe Mode, and run it there.

(To boot into Safe Mode, tap F8 after BIOS, and just before the Windows
logo appears. A list of options will appear, select "Safe Mode.")

Re-downloading:

If this doesn't work either, try the same method (above method), but try to download it again, except name
ComboFix.exe to iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, or winlogon.exe.

Malware is known for blocking all "user" processes, except for its whitelist of system important processes such as iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, winlogon.exe.

NOTE: If you encounter a message "illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion" and no programs will run - please just reboot and that will resolve that error.

OTL Fix

Please run OTL
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, copy and paste in the following:

    :OTL
    FF - prefs.js..extensions.enabledAddons: %7B972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd%7D:17.0
    CHR - Extension: Color my Facebook = C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\innimmmamipenpklmoafgkgidfhfemhb\2.0.1_0\

    :files
    ipconfig /flushdns /c

    :commands
    [emptytemp]
    [reboot]

  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top.
  • Note: The fix for OTL automatically hides your Desktop and Start menu so the fix can be completed. Do not be alerted, as this is normal.
  • Please do not exit the program. It might take a while to fix, but allow it to run. If it asks to reboot the computer, allow it to reboot. If the program freezes, and the computer fails to reboot - let me know.
    Lastly, post the contents of the log. (Located at C:\_OTL\Moved Files)

Here is the info on their site:

How do I remove Genieo?


On Windows:



  • Open Control Panel.
  • On Windows 7 - choose “Uninstall a program”. On Windows XP - choose “Add/Remove Programs”.
  • Select the “Genieo” entry from the list of installed programs and click the “Uninstall” button.
  • If from any reason the uninstall does not work please download and run the following file.



Once that's done (if successful), post new log from OTL please.

I originally did that and it did not work. Genio is not listed but it still comes up as my home page and there is no way to change it. I think ever since I accidently installled it my computer has been getting slower I think it is a virus in itself. There was no file to run in the last post
