Win32.FraudLoad.edt removal help

    Today I was (stupidly) looking for a keygen for my PDG Gold promotion testing software as I misplaced the casing sometime before upgrading to Windows 7. I noticed that browser started redirecting me when I clicked on search hits, so I ran Spybot and found Win32.Agent.ieu, which was eventually removed. I ran the steps in the Malware Removal guide, but may have messed up because when I double-clicked MGTools.exe it started running automatically. When it was finished I couldn't find the EnableUAC.reg file, so I just enabled UAC through the control panel and restarted, without toggling system restore unfortunately. After all of this, I ran Spybot again and found Win32.FraudLoad.edt. Please note that I'm using a 64bit system and that I couldn't download MGTools directly to the C drive due to some Administrator error, although I'm on the only user account. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    I am not seeing any malware in your logs.

    You need to give me the exact file path of the 'threat' it is finding.

    Let's do this while we're at it:

    Use Windows Explorer to locate and delete the two bold folders below:


    Also delete all files in the below folder except ones from the current date (Windows will not let you delete the files from the current day).
    Let me know about what SpyBot S&D is alerting you to.

    I deleted the files you asked me to and ran Spybot S&D again; it did not find any malware. Not sure why it found the files after I went through all the steps last night, there weren't any traces in Spybot's quarantine either. All I remember about the file path is that it was somewhere in C:\Windows and had an .ini extension.

    Thanks again for the help, and I really appreciate the forum and malware cleaning walk-through, really helped me out.

    You're welcome. :) Safe surfing!

    If you are not having any other malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:
    1. We recommend you keep SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware. Unless you purchase them, they provide no protection. They do not use any significant amount of resources ( except a little disk space ) until you run a scan.
    2. If we used Pocket Killbox during your cleanup, do the below
      • Run Pocket Killbox and select File, Cleanup, Delete All Backups
    3. If we had you use ComboFix, uninstall ComboFix (This uninstall will only work as written if you installed ComboFix on your Desktop like we requested.)
      • Click START then RUN and enter the below into the run box and then click OK. Note the quotes are required
      • "%userprofile%\Desktop\combofix" /uninstall
        • Notes: The space between the combofix" and the /uninstall, it must be there.
        • This will uninstall ComboFix and also reset hidden files and folders settings back to Windows defaults.
    4. Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
    5. If we had you download any registry patches like fixme.reg or fixWLK.reg (or any others), you can delete these files now.
    6. If running Vista, it is time to make sure you have reenabled UAC by double clicking on the C:\MGtools\enableUAC.reg file and allowing it to be added to the registry.
    7. Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis.
    8. Goto the C:\MGtools folder and find the MGclean.bat file. Double click on this file to run this cleanup program that will remove files and folders related to MGtools and some other items from our cleaning procedures.
    9. If you are running Win 7, Vista, Windows XP or Windows ME, do the below:
      • Refer to the cleaning procedures in step 3 the READ ME for your Window version and see the instructions to Disable System Restore which will flush your Restore Points.
      • Then reboot and Enable System Restore to create a new clean Restore Point.
    10. After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:
