fixo.bat virus
5 Attachment(s)
I downloaded a file on my work laptop to try to fix my desktop missing explorer.exe. I foolishly unpacked it on my laptop to put it on a swap drive. Now my internet will only selectively access sites and is incredibly slow. I have followed the directions on how to remove malware on your site.
I have run rogue killer, malwarebytes, tds killer, hitman, and mgtools. I have attached the pertinent logs. Can someone please help? Before I read your message board, I did run malbytes and it identified fixo.bat as a virus and quarantined it.

Re: fixo.bat virus
Welcome to Major Geeks!

Uninstall the below very old versions of software:
Java(TM) 6 Update 37

Now install the current version of Sun Java from: Sun Java Runtime Environment

Run C:\MGtools\analyse.exe by double clicking on it (Note: if using Vista or Win 7, don't double click, use right click and select Run As Administrator). This is really HijackThis (select Do a system scan only) and select the following lines but DO NOT CLICK FIX until you exit all browser sessions including the one you are reading in right now:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {88c7f2aa-f93f-432c-8f0e-b7d85967a527} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SearchProtection] C:\ProgramData\Search Protection\_run.bat
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-21-3165238469-880121169-2930630028-1001\..\Run: [LTT] C:\Program Files\PC-Doctor\EnableToolbarW32.exe (User 'pluto')
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-21-3165238469-880121169-2930630028-1003\..\Run: [LTT] C:\Program Files\PC-Doctor\EnableToolbarW32.exe (User 'atlas')

After clicking Fix, exit HJT.

Please download OTM by Old Timer and save it to your Desktop.
  • Right-click OTM.exe and select Run as administrator to run it.
  • Copy the lines from the below codebox to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C
    (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy): Do not include the word Code: which is just a title line of
    the code box

C:\ProgramData\Search Protection

[-HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-3165238469-880121169-2930630028-1004\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\{3BD44F0E-0596-4008-AEE0-45D47E3A8F0E}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\{3BD44F0E-0596-4008-AEE0-45D47E3A8F0E}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\{DFB26A20-D81A-4F7C-B963-4C4A73184F56}]
[start explorer]

  • Return to OTM, right click in the Paste List of Files/Folders to Move window (under the yellow bar
    ) and choose Paste.
  • Now click the large!.png button.
  • If OTM asks to reboot your computer, allow it to do so. The report should appear in Notepad after the reboot.
  • Close OTM.
Now navigate to the C:\_OTM\MovedFiles folder ( assuming your Windows drive is C). This is where your log will be
saved in the form of Date and Time mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log. Just look for the most recent .log file. Attach
this log file to your next message.

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Seven, right-mouse click it and select Run as Administrator.
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Note: That JRT may reset your home page to a google default so you will need to restore your home page setting if this happens.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Attach JRT.txt to your next message.

  • Then make sure the Restart System radio button is enabled.
  • Shutdown any other programs that you are running now before continuing.

  • Be patient while the tool repairs the selected items.
  • It should reboot automatically when finished.

Now run the C:\MGtools\GetLogs.bat file by double clicking on it (Note: if using Vista or Win7, don't double click, use right click and select Run As Administrator).

Then attach the below logs:
  • the C:\_OTM\MovedFiles log
  • C:\
