Help , uneasy about malware removal

16 posts in this topic

A few days ago i noticed that my internet browser could not open it gave me a message about the site being temporarily offline or moved to a different address but the problem got "fixed" whenever i restart my computer. Upon further investigation they said it could be the effect of a virus so i ran Malwarebytes Anti-malware and it found 4 pieces of malware called "Worm.Autorun" one was a folder, one was a registery key and the other 2 are files. It said they removed them successfully but i am still concerned as they are still in quarentine along with 2 pieces of "Broken.Opencommand" so i am asking if there is any way to remove these files permanently from my computer, if they are still there of course. Also i am concerned because it said that the worm is transferred by USB and i have been using my phone as a usb so if it did transfer to my phone is there a way that i can delete it? thank you in advance :D

Hello and :welcome:

It is indeed important to clean any usb device (preferably by reformatting).



Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:


  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. (Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive.)
  • Double click on Combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, or if you are running Vista, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\Combofix.txt in your next reply.

Thank you for your response and time elise025, but i seemed to have encountered a problem, when i run the combofix it basically freezes a point and nothing can be done but a hard restart tot he computer i believe i have disabled the antivirus that was on your list but the problem still occurs. Also about the usb, i use my phone as a usb device but don't particularly wish to format it :( is there any other alternative to get the malware off my phone, if it is on my phone to begin with?

Sorry, I meant USB mass storage devices (flashdrives and such). :)

Please press Windows key + R, type combofix /nombr and press enter. See if it runs like that.

thank you again for your reply but unfortunately that method did not work either :( it said to ensure that it was spelt correctly for windows could not locate it :( i tried downloading it from the other location but alas the same thing happened. Also i am just confirming so i dont need to scan my phone or delete anything from it? is it not possible for the malware to be on my phone?, thanks again :)

Technically malware could jump to a phone but as of yet there isn't cross-platform malware (yet).

Change the command to <path to combofix.exe> /nombr (for example: "%userprofile%\desktop\combofix.exe" /nombr if it is located on the desktop).

In that case, delete combofix, download a new copy, rename it to random.exe and try to run it from Safe Mode.

Hi again, that is looking good. :)

How are things running at this point?



Your Microsoft Windows installation is out of date. Using unpatched Windows systems on the Internet is a security risk to everyone. When there are insecure computers connected to the Internet, malware spreads faster and more extensively, distributed denial-of-service attacks are easier to launch, and spammers have more platforms from which to send e-mail. Whenever a security problem in its software is found, Microsoft will usually create a patch for it. After the patch is installed, attackers can't use the vulnerability to install malicious software on your computer. Keeping up-to-date with all these security patches will help prevent malware from reinfecting your machine. If you are not sure how to do this, see How to use Microsoft Update.

For additional information, be sure to read "Windows Xp Service Pack 3 (sp3) Information".

Then go here to check for & install updates to Microsoft applications.

Note: The update process uses ActiveX, so you will need to use Internet Explorer for it, and allow the ActiveX control that it wants to install.

Please reboot and repeat the update process until there are no more updates to install.

Your version of Adobe Reader is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Adobe components and update:

  • Download the latest version of Adobe Reader Version X. and save it to your desktop.
  • Uncheck the "Free McAfee Security plan Plus" option or any other Toolbar you are offered
  • Click the download button at the bottom.
  • If you use Internet Explorer and do not wish to install the ActiveX element, simply click on the click here to download link on the next page.
  • Remove all older version of Adobe Reader: Go to Add/remove and uninstall all versions of Adobe Reader, Acrobat Reader and Adobe Acrobat.
    If you are unsure of how to use Add or Remove Programs, the please see this tutorial:How To Remove An Installed Program From Your Computer
  • Then from your desktop double-click on Adobe Reader to install the newest version.
    If using Windows Vista and the installer refuses to launch due to insufficient user permissions, then Run As Administrator.
  • When the "Adobe Setup - Welcome" window opens, click the Install > button.
  • If offered to install a Toolbar, just uncheck the box before continuing unless you want it.

Your Adobe Reader is now up to date!

Finally, please launch MBAM, update it and run a full scan. Post me the resulting log.
