Need super-duper experts to accept the challenge & help me fix my computer

Recommended Posts

Dear Sir or Madame,

I need help big time.

My attachments include 2 extra bug reports - made before reading the entire start page, then I went back and read the entire start page - so, I am including those extra reports in hope I haven't screwed up ShadowPuterDude's system of "how to" instructions too badly for discovery of the problems in my system, so your experts can provide instructions on just how to fix it.

Fingers crossed and on my knees, praying for guidance from higher powers, here ya go...

Thanks in advance!

Mike :{D

The detection of C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Visio10\1033\Visres.dll is most likely a false positive. Can you please submit the file using the submit function inside the a-squared Quarantine?

Hi Mikeyc3pro, and welcome to the forum

in addition to what Fabian Wosar suggested:

The a-squared's report (bugreport2) with quarantined suspected False Positive file was produced 10/31/2009

The report that not showing any flaggings (bugreport3) was produced 11/2/2009

If the False Positive will be confirmed after submitting the file from quarantine and subsequent rescanning it will be restored. If that will be the case but you still want to continue investigation after that, please update a-squared in order to rescan and attach fresh report.

If you are experiencing problems with system functionality please briefly describe them.

As or the crash report by a-squared (bugreport) - if that will happen again - send the report to EMSI developers. There is an option for on-line submission. Those crashes most likely are not malware related.

My regards

Since the your new thread was locked for the reason explained, please re-attach the existing quarantine report here.

newest a2 scan showed my DVD Data Library is completely laced with virus!

Update a-squared; rescan and attach fresh Deep Scan report (don't quarantine/delete as it's sated in the instruction)

Attach all required log files in addition as per instruction (ISeeYouXP and HiJackFree)

Thanks for setting me straight about the posts Lynx. Per your instruction, I have added the quarantine file and will now update all the programs and run for the new reports.

I did an a2 scan (after updating) last night (which I am attaching), but I did not run all three programs last night, so I shall do so now...

Thanks!

Ha ya Lynx ~

Here's the latest of the files for a2, a2hijack & I see xp...I hope results show options to fix this computer and rid the continual problems...this morning I was referred by online in hijack to use a program called Sophos.

Doesn't a2 do the same thing? or should I download Sophos as well to rid some virus problems? I believe the viruses found are still in quarantine at this time...shouldn't I delete them?

I have followed the instructions by ShadowPuterDude...and if I understand correctly, I am not supposed to delete anything just yet...

Instead, I should wait for instruction based on your findings from the attached files. Is this correct?

On a slightly different subject:

I have Spybot Search & Destroy, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and AVG in my computer, but have not run any while waiting for your instructions. An article I read on Cnet explained that each program tends to discover different viruses, so running multiple programs will help to keep your computer in better shape.

Is it a good practice to run different malware programs on a weekly basis for additional discoveries of any viruses through deep scanning with different programs to eliminate all virus problems? or is it necessary run any different programs than the ones your website recommends in opposition to the Cnet report recommendations?

Additional problems:

My computer seems to have difficulties which begin when starting up! Loading of processes & programs is agonizingly slow.

Defragging (after disk clean-up) will speed processes only slightly.

Internet is the worst for loading...sometimes I can almost go food shopping in the time it takes to load...even a2 scan took most of the day yesterday.

Obe-wahn Lynx, I bow to your wisdom, exaulted one of higher power to me, a lowly "shade-tree" almost geek through need...you are my only hope right now.

My computer's life is quite literally in your hands with the other technicians of emsi, to find solution and resolve these reoccurring problems in my Dell 8250 Desktop.

It is only through the wisdom of your guidance hope lies to fixing this maze of circuits.

I await your command.

Still hangin' in there,

Mike :{D

Hi Mike,

Unfortunately this section of the forum is not a discussion section.

You can read this forum and the old one in order to get more information about investigating such matters as suspected infection. Feel free to to create nee thread in the respective section including OffTopic.

The answer to you concerns currently:

If you don't have enough experience you are compelled to seek help of the Certified Professional malware fighter and follow only all preliminary steps and further instruction given by him/her.

You have to find one place and one specialist that will lead you through whole cycle of the investigation and cleaning procedures.

At this stage you definitely can just scan with local on-demand or on-line scanners in order to gather more information but not more than that.

Sure there are many advices out there and different Tools/Antiviruses may have ability to clean various infections with different degree of thoroughness. That may or may not help, because usually infections (if genuine) may not come alone and may have variants; additional nasties which are accompanying the main one could be overlooked, etc.

By spontaneously choosing cleaning Tools and methods without experience you can render you system inoperable.

Please be patient and you will get assistance by the professional of the highest rank.

Take into consideration that people who are helping others here are volunteers and they have their own main duties and event in their personal life. It happens that users have to wait a bit before the investigation start.

My regards

~WHOLE QUOTATION REMOVED {Lynx}

Lynx ~

Thank you for your thoroughness and direction; I will try reading the other boards to better educate myself.

Since I am getting false positives (according to Fabian) I will just hang tight until the one and only specialist with enough time to help arrives to do so, as a few days compared to the 3 years I've been fighting these difficulties is a short wait.

Mr. Wosar ~

Thank you for easing my mind concerning these "false positives." It seems my problems are more in line with registry problems rather then viruses. I shall take my place in line awaiting review by a professional that has the time to help fix my woes.

Have a great day!

Mike, While you are waiting...

Have you submitted the file from Quarantine as Fabian Wosar suggested? Was the item restored after update(s) and auto-rescanning Quarantine?

ShadowPuterDude pointed to other possible False Positives

Have you submitted those from the detection list for analysis?

If you have questions regarding the procedure create new thread in the respective section of the forum, where you can discuss such matters and get suggestions about investigating flaggings

If you system is misbehaving - provide brief description of the problems and symptoms (if any) here for ShadowPuterDude.

My regards
