Default Re: privatize vpn issues

Uninstall the below:
Conduit Engine
Vuze Remote Toolbar

If you do not find the above to uninstall, just continue on.

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:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {761497BB-D6F0-462C-B6EB-D4DAF1D92D43} - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {ba14329e-9550-4989-b3f2-9732e92d17cc} - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {30F9B915-B755-4826-820B-08FBA6BD249D} - (no file)
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [] (User 'SYSTEM')
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\RunOnce: [{91120000-0030-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}] C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /C del "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft Help\Rgstrtn.lck" /Q /A:H (User 'SYSTEM')
O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\Run: [] (User 'Default user')
O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\RunOnce: [{91120000-0030-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}] C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /C del "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft Help\Rgstrtn.lck" /Q /A:H (User 'Default user')

After clicking Fix, exit HJT.



Please download OTM by Old Timer and save it to your Desktop.
  • Run it by double clicking on it (Note: if using Vista, Win7, or Win8, don't double click, use right click and select Run As Administrator).
  • 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
Code:

[Reboot]
  • 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 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.


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:\MGlogs.zip
Make sure you tell me how things are working now!

Thanks so much for the help!


When I try to uninstall Vuze I get a could not open INSTALL.LOG file notice
Conduit engine does nothing when I try to uninstall for some reason.

I did everything else you suggested. I still have privatize VPN in my search engine, and it takes me to a searchab site.

Here are my logs:

With which browser? My last fix should have removed it from IE. If your problem is with Chrome, just remove it from the search engines. Click the wrench icon and select Settings. On the Settings page click the Manage seach engines button. Locate the Privatize VPN item and select it it. Then click the X to the far right to delete that search engine.

You're welcome.


If you are not having any other malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:
  1. We recommend you keep Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware.
  2. Go back to step 4 oof the READ ME and renable your Disk Emulation software with Defogger if you had disabled it.
  3. Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis. If you don't see it or it will not uninstall, don't worry about it. Just move on to the next step.
  4. If running Vista or Win 7, 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.
  5. Goto the C:\MGtools folder and find the MGclean.bat file. Double click ( if running Vista, Win7, or Win 8 Right Click and Run As Administrator ) 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.
  6. Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
  7. If you are running Win 7, Vista, Windows XP or Windows ME, do the below:
    • Refer to the cleaning procedures pointed to by step 6 of 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.
  8. After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:
