CLOSED Please help remove Trojan.LNK.Poweliks.1.Gen (B)

Recommended Posts

To Whom It May Concern:

I recently performed the Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scan and two Trojan.LNK.Poweliks.1.Gen (B) files were identified for quarantine.  However, the files are deeply embedded in my operating system and the Emergency Kit directed me to seek your expert advise.  Thank you in advance for your time and assistance,

Sage, Deputy Clerk
Town of Skykomish, WA

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Note: If the tool warns you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

Thank you!  I will not return to the infected PC until Tuesday, which is outside of the 72 hour window to respond.  So sorry!  I am hoping you will keep this thread open and allow me a chance to follow up?  I expect to follow your advice in the above thread as soon as I get back to my office.  Happy New Year :)

Let's see how well that worked.

Let's take a fresh look.

Run fresh scans with Emsisoft Emergency Kit (EEK) and FRST, attach the new EEK and FRST scans to your reply.

Be sure to let me know how things are running.

As far as I can tell everything is running fine with the exception of a hosted software package we use for accounting.  I have some other issues to chase with that however, so if we can confirm this Trojan is gone I will be very happy!  Attached the scans below.

The previous fix appears to have been effective and I see no indications of malware being present in the logs.

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.

Thanks for all your help.  We are a small municipality in need of a comprehensive malware package for multiple devices.  Final request, do you have any links to articles that explain why we might want to consider EmsiSoft over other anti-malware options?  That would be so helpful.
