Windows 7 Infected?
Posted on 2014-03-11
I'm going to try this for the 3rd time, since my computer seems to love me and have IE crash... :(
Anyways, I have another computer here that a customer brought in stating that it was infected with Advance System Protector.
Here's what the computer is doing. If you go to anything besides Safe Mode with Command Prompt, nothing opens. What I mean by that is when you boot into normal mode, I can't even open up 'Computer'. It tells me The Parameter Is Incorrect. If you try to run a program, you can't. You right-click, and not only does it not have the option to Run As Administrator, but it doesn't even have the OPEN function!
Here's things I have tried.
Chkdsk'd the hard drive, no errors.
Ran memtest 86+, no errors.
Uninstalled Avast! with the removal tool.
Ran the command to register all DLL's in C:\Windows.
Scanned with Malwarebytes twice. Also scanned with SUPERAntiSpyware, TDSSKiller, and AdwCleaner. Removed some PUP's, but nothing important.
SFC /scannow did not find any integrity violations.
