    Rogue Killer IDs 2 possible hijacks, being



    Anti-Malwarebytes did remove a REgedit ?? problem, but this has reappeared a couple of times.

    Is this just probably because of the Restore files situation?

    Welcome to Major Geeks!

    Please read ALL of this message including the notes before doing anything.

    Please follow the instructions in the below link:

    READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide

    and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.
    • **** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
    • Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.

    • After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
    Helpful Notes:

    1. If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:
    2. If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.
    3. If you cannot seem to login to an infected user account, try using a different user account (if you have one) in either normal or safe boot mode and running only SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes while logged into this other user account. Then reboot and see if you can log into the problem user account. If you can then run SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes, ComboFix and MGtools on the infected account as requested in the instructions.
    4. To avoid additional delay in getting a response, it is strongly advised that after completing the READ & RUN ME you also read this sticky:
    Any additional post is a bump which will add more delay. Once you attach the logs, your thread will be in the work queue and as stated our system works the oldest threads FIRST.

    Eh - we can close this one down - less work for you!

    I took the time to read Highjack This and cleaned up a couple of issues.

    ....PCs are faster now (ran it on 2)....

    Thank you.

    Oh HJT does not find everything, in fact it barely touches the surface if you are looking for baddies. Feel free to attach ALL of the requested logs. If not, yea.. I'll close thread, no problem. :)

    Yeah, I will come back, but I'm trying to get back to "where I was" with Outlook Express right now, so it may be a while.

    ...and I don't know the standard policy on how long a thread remains open.

    (I do feel there is still some problem)

    We rarely close threads in the malware section. So I suggest you attach the requested logs as soon as you can so we can determine if you are still infected or not.
