Gaming Computer Issues

Post by jseiler on Wed 24 Dec 2014, 2:15 am

Bought a gaming computer for my son a while back and it got to the point where there were so many ads and pop-ups he couldn't use it. I have run adwcleaner, malwarebytes and security check and things have gotten better but I'm afraid they will return. I am attaching the reports below and any additional help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Gaming Computer Issues

Post by Superdave on Wed 24 Dec 2014, 1:55 pm

Hello and welcome to GeekPolice.Net My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.
*************************************************************************
Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.

Warning! Once the scan is complete JRT will shut down your browser with NO warning.

Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.

•Temporarily disable your Antivirus and any Antispyware real time protection before performing a scan. Click this link to see a list of security programs that should be disabled and how to disable them.

•Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, right-click JRT and select Run as Administrator

•The tool will open and start scanning your system.

•Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.

•On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.

•Copy and Paste the JRT.txt log into your next message.
*****************************************
Malwarebytes' Anti-Rootkit

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Rootkit and save it to your desktop.

  • Be sure to print out and follow the instructions provided on that same page for performing a scan.
  • Caution: This is a beta version so also read the disclaimer and back up all your data before using.
  • When the scan completes, click on the Cleanup button to remove any threats found and reboot the computer if prompted to do so.
  • Perform another scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit to verify that no threats remain. If they do, then click Cleanup once more and repeat the process.
  • If there are problems with Internet access, Windows Update, Windows Firewall or other system issues, run the fixdamage tool located in the folder Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit was run from and reboot your computer.
  • Two files (mbar-log-YYYY-MM-DD, system-log.txt) will be created and saved within that same folder.
  • Copy and paste the contents of these two log files in your next reply.

***********************************************
Update Your Java (JRE)

Old versions of Java have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.


First Verify your Java Version

If there are any other version(s) installed then update now.

Get the new version (if needed)

If your version is out of date install the newest version of the Sun Java Runtime Environment.

Note: UNCHECK any pre-checked toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update. The pre-checked toolbars/software are not part of the Java update.

Be sure to close ALL open web browsers before starting the installation.

Remove any old versions

1. Download JavaRa and unzip the file to your Desktop.
2. Open JavaRA.exe and choose Remove Older Versions
3. Once complete exit JavaRA.

Additional Note: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. To disable the JQS service if you don't want to use it, go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and reboot your computer.

Just hoping the pop ups don't start taking over again. What's your recommendation for virus protection?
Oh, and I would like to piggyback another computer issue. The Dell Vostro 1440 (running windows 7) my daughter uses for school is pretty slow. I'll run the usual and post the logs here if that's okay. I really appreciate your help.

Windows 8.1 comes with it's own AV called Windows Defender. That is sufficient.
Oh, and I would like to piggyback another computer issue. The Dell Vostro 1440 (running windows 7) my daughter uses for school is pretty slow. I'll run the usual and post the logs here if that's okay. I really appreciate your help..
I would prefer that you start a new thread for this computer. Let's do some clean up. If you wish you can download and install MBAM and AdwCleaner and keep them on your computer. If the popups start, update and run both scanners. That should get rid of them.
Let's do some clean up.


Click Start> Computer> right click the C Drive and choose Properties> enter
Click Disk Cleanup from there.



Click OK on the Disk Cleanup Screen.
Click Yes on the Confirmation screen.



This runs the Disk Cleanup utility along with other selections if you have chosen any. (if you had a lot System Restore points, you will see a significant change in the free space in C drive)
****************************************
This step will remove all cleaning tools we used, it'll reset restore points (so you won't get reinfected by accidentally using some older restore point) and it'll make some other minor adjustments...
This is a very crucial step so make sure you don't skip it.
Download DelFix by Xplode to your desktop. Delfix will delete all the used tools and logfiles.

Double-click Delfix.exe to start the tool.
Make sure the following items are checked:

  • Activate UAC (optional; some users prefer to keep it off)
  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Create Registry backup
  • Purge System Restore Points
  • Re-set system settings

Now click "Run" and wait patiently.
Once finished a logfile will be created. You don't have to attach it to your next reply.
******************************************
I suggest using WOT - Web of Trust. WOT is a free Internet security addon for your browser. It will keep you safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and unreliable shopping sites. WOT warns you before you interact with a risky website. It's easy and it's free.

Check out Keeping Yourself Safe On The Web for tips and free tools to help keep you safe in the future.

Also see Slow Computer? It may not be Malware for free cleaning/maintenance tools to help keep your computer running smoothly.
Safe Surfing!

Merry Christmas, Superdave. I'll start a new thread for the other computer but I have a new issue on the gaming computer and I hope this forum is okay.
To date everything has been loaded and run from the C: drive on Disk 0. Well, now it is full (106 GB). There is a Disk 1 with volume E: that is empty (1.8 TB). How can we transfer gaming programs (ARMA 2, Minecraft, etc.) to the empty drive while saving progress and without issues? And what should be done in the future? Install on E:?

Merry Christmas to you and yours. You can install programs on another drive but they can't be transferred to that other drive. Any programs you want to transfer will have to be installed and then uninstalled from your main drive. I find it hard to believe that that drive is filled with programs. Don't confuse programs with files. For example, you may have a music notation on that drive but all the music notation files you have produced can be transferred to another drive saving a great amount of space.The same goes for videos, music, pictures etc.
