CLOSED SecHiJack(A)

Recommended Posts

Hello!

EAM found in the registry and placed in quarantine SecHiJack (A).
I read that this is a dangerous threat!
Full computer scan - clean.
In browser extensions, it's also clean.
What else can I do to make sure that this was the only threat on the computer and now it is rendered harmless?

I do not create a topic by rules, because. I hope that my computer is not infected.
I just want to know what action to take!
:huh:

Hi Andrey,

There are legitimate reasons for a file to set Image File Execution Options.  However, that setting is also used by malicious programs as well.

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

For x32 (x86) bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.
For x64 (x64) bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

Andrey,

Download AdwCleaner and save it on your desktop.

  1. Close all open programs and Internet browsers (you may want to print our or write down these instructions first).
  2. Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  3. Click on the Scan button.
  4. After the scan has finished, click on the Clean button.
  5. Confirm each time with OK.
  6. You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open in Notepad after the restart (this is the log of what was removed), which you can save on your desktop.
  7. Attach that log file to your reply by clicking the More Reply Options button to the lower-right of where you type in your reply.
    NOTE: If you lose that log file for any reason, you can find it at C:\AdwCleaner on your computer.

Copy the below code to Notepad; Save As fixlist.txt to your Desktop.

Close Notepad.

NOTE: It's important that both files, FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system

Run FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.

If the tool needed a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.

The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Attach it to your reply.

Note: If the tool warns you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

Hello Kevin!

Thank you!:)

Thanks, everything works, but there is one problem.-_-

I do not know if it's not related to SecHiJack (A). Namely - I can not get Windows updates! when searching for updates-an error (screen) "Unknown Windows Update error".

I read about this error, restarted the service, cleared the SoftwaresDistribution folder, performed sfc / scannow - nothing helps...

Perhaps this is not on the topic,:blush: but maybe you will advise something?

Hi Kevin!

You are just a magician!:D

Everything worked out! Updates are established!

Thank you very much, you are a real expert!

p.s. No more actions to verify the system is required?

p.p.s. 1)After working with the utility, I have new folder and files on drive C. They can not be deleted?

2)But this entry in the registry about the disabled Security Center - normal? Although the Service Center works in the autorun!

Andrey,

Run a fresh scan with FRST, attach the new FRST scan logs to your reply.

Most of that is most likely a side affect from running Windows Repair.

Andrey,

Look at the list of installed Microsoft Updates on your system, it may already be installed.  If so, uninstall the update reboot and install the downloaded update.

Your FRST logs look fine.

Hi Frank!

Thank you very much for your help!:)

Windows Update Center is working! You are right, the update is installed. After installing many updates, reboots-if possible-look again at my logs. If everything is okay, the topic can be closed!

Andrey,

Your logs look fine.

Unless you are having problems, it is time to do the final steps.

Now to remove most of the tools that we have used in fixing your machine:

Download Delfix from here and save it to your desktop.

  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is checked.
  • Also place a checkmark next to:
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
  • Click the Run button.

When the tool is finished, a log will open in notepad. I do not need the log. You can close Notepad.

Empty the Recycle Bin

You can delete and uninstall any programs I had you download, that you do not wish to keep on the system.

To Remove EEK simple delete the EEK for in the of your System Drive, normally C:\EEK

Run Windows Update and update your Windows Operating System.

Hi Kevin!

Thanks for the help! The system works.:D

There is one small BUT:blush:: sfs / scannow sometimes infects corrupt files in the system.

Sometimes he reports that he successfully restored them, and sometimes that some files could not be recovered ...

I understand that this topic is already beyond the scope of this topic, so do not ask for help, but simply inform ...

I can not understand why one scan-no damaged files, the other (on the same day!:huh:) - found corrupted system files, but the system can automatically restore them. And on the same day - reports after checking that the damaged files are damaged and some of them failed to recover ..

I just do not understand why this happens?

I did not install any new applications, only updates of Windows (not all, unfortunately, were installed) I'll wait for the monthly Tuesday patches - how to install updates.

In any case, thanks again for the prompt help!

p.s.Here, please look at the logs! The first one - sfc / scannow in it the system found corrupted files and successfully restored them! The second-in safe mode sfc / scannow can not repair corrupted files ... Why is it so?

CBS.log

CBS (2).log

Looks like, at least to me, is that files were pending rename and the operation failed at some point and SFC is identifying those issues and fixing them.  Unless there are performance and stability issues, I would ignore them.

Hi Kevin!

Thank you for the clarification!

My system works stably.

All applications run and perform their functions.

So I hope, you are right: you can ignore the testimony of the sfs / scannow utility.;)

Of course, there will be a lot of next Tuesday's updates-whether they will all be fixed!
Thanks again for the help!

Can I contact you if there are problems with installing Windows updates?
