Cannot delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ovfsthpjcpsqywmtuetoqmflwbaueoithckcff

8 posts in this topic

Ok so i purchased VMWARE thinapp and it creates a snapshot and scans the registry. It warned me about:

Cannot delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ovfsthpjcpsqywmtuetoqmflwbaueoithckcff

so i went in and i tried deleting it and it wouldnt allow me to it kept saying that i just couldnt delete like some type of access denied or lack of permission or one of those things. Maybe a vista thing, but im not sure if it happens to XP also (im using vista). I also tried changing the permissions of the folder to full permissions and it allowed me for one of the folders, but the other 2 folders (main, tasks) it didnt allow me to. after doing a little bit of googling with VERY, VERY LITTLE results i confirmed that its a trace of a virus that i once had, or maybe still have (maybe its inactive) ive used both Avast and Malwarebyte to remove it and I also downloaded GMER and it found allllllll the traces of left over things in the registry that this virus left. However GMER doesnt do anything other than find them and confirm suspicion.

Can anyone suggest what a should do?!

Yes, first off you need to Uninstall ALL Peer2Peer software such as the one running there: uTorrent

These Peer2Peer applications can infect your system faster than we can clean it so it's a waste of my time to help you with it installed.

Then run this application and we'll see about getting you cleaned up.

Download
DDS
and save it to your desktop

Disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.

Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.

Then double click
dds.scr
to run the tool.

When done, the
DDS.txt
will open.

Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan.
    When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:

  1. DDS.txt
  2. Attach.txt

  • Save both reports to your desktop
  • Please include the following logs in your next reply:
    DDS.txt
    and
    Attach.txt

STEP 01

Download but do not yet run ComboFix

If you have a previous version of Combofix.exe, delete it and download a fresh copy.

Download it to your DESKTOP - it MUST run from the Desktop

download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe

Using your mouse, Highlight and then Right-click | Copy the entire contents of the Code box below, including blank lines

KILLALL::

File::
c:\windows\temp\_A00FEADA4C.exe
c:\windows\system32\drivers\npf.sys
c:\programdata\norton\Norton2009Reset.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\lssexp.dll
c:\windows\system32\HgOWaKkj.ini2
c:\windows\system32\HgOWaKkj.ini
c:\windows\system32\WHiRYyay.ini2
c:\windows\system32\WHiRYyay.ini
C:\amctempt.jpg
C:\amcDB.sdf
c:\windows\system32\uniq.tll
c:\windows\rsscap.dll
c:\users\aj\appdata\roaming\Serial_Grabber.exe
c:\windows\system32\Presecom.dat

Driver::
NPF
.norton2009Reset

RegLock::
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ovfsthpjcpsqywmtuetoqmflwbaueoithckcff]
Registry::
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ovfsthpjcpsqywmtuetoqmflwbaueoithckcff]

Open a new Notepad session (Do not use a Word Processor or WordPad). Click "Format" and be certain that Word Wrap is not enabled. Right-click | Paste the Code box contents from above into Notepad. Click File, Save as..., and set the location to your Desktop, and enter (including quotation marks) as the filename: "CFscript.txt" .

Using your mouse, drag the new file CFscript.txt and drop it on the Combo-Fix.exe icon as shown:

CFScript.gif

  • Important: Have no other programs running. Your Task Bar should be clear of any program entries including your Browser.
  • Disconnect from the Internet.
  • Disable your Antivirus software. If it has Script Blocking features, please disable these as well.
  • A window may open with a series of Disclaimers. Accept the Disclaimers to start the fix.
  • It may identify that Recovery Console is not installed. Please accept when asked if you wish it to be installed.
    When the scan completes Notepad will open with with your results log open. Do a File, Exit.

A caution - Do not run Combofix more than once. Do not touch your mouse/keyboard until the scan has completed, as this may cause the process to stall or your computer to lock. The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled. If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop. Even when ComboFix appears to be doing nothing, look at your Drive light. If it is flashing, Combofix is still at work.

Post back the Combofix log on your next reply.

STEP 02

You should remove and update Adobe Reader

Adobe Reader 8.1.0

Security Updates available for Adobe Reader and Acrobat

STEP 03

These applications along with the Torrent downloads can easily infect your computer.

Free Music Zilla

FrostWire 4.17.2

STEP 04

Please go into the Control Panel, Add/Remove and for now remove ALL versions of JAVA

Java
