View Full Version : Anti-Malware Programs Freeze

2005-12-05, 01:53
I do have windows Xp wih sp2 pentium 4. Im not exactly sure what HTT is. But i do have a CPU usage and the CPU usage history. I am running spybot 1.4 and everything is currently up to date.

Prior to spybot freezing i have had no problems with random popups or any ads. Also I did not see any difference in the performance of my computer. I did notice sluggishness of web pages and after spybot began freezing about two weeks ago, my computer did start to slow down and it still does. I also run adaware se and yahoo anti-spy that comes with my internet software. Also i have NortonSystem works 2003, i did a full pc scan and it did not detect any virus (yes everything was up to date) I went through the one button checkup and at the windows registry scan it found some errors, and it automatically fixed them. I scanned again right after doing so and it said 0 errors found. They were invalid activex/com entries. I also did the usual, erased all cookies, internet files and history. I ran speed disk, defragment, disk doctor and quick clean (all with the norton) I also tried running mcafee online virus scan, and that froze as well. We went away for a few days unexpectedly and forgot all about shutting down the comp. before we hurried to the train and when we got back norton had said it detected a virus trojan.vundo This was about a month ago. My brothers wife's stepdad is a computer wiz and had taken the computer for a week or so and fixed everything for us. He got us the norton systemworks before that we had the anti virus and firewall. When we got the pc back everything worked as good as new

*just a bump*

2005-12-06, 16:38

Which antimaleware programs freeze ?
"They were invalid activex/com entries."

Using Spybot system internals scan ?

"When we got the pc back everything worked as good as new"
Confused, so now there are problems ?

In task manager preformance are there two or three graphs ?

2005-12-07, 03:20
Spybot and mcafee online virus scan are the programs that freeze. Adaware se and yahoo anti spy both work fine. I got the invalid active x with Norton Systemworks one button checkup during the windows registry scan, not spybot. In the task manager performance I get CPU Usage History and Page File Usage History.

2005-12-07, 03:57

Please run SpyBot while in safe mode and see if there are still problems with it freezing. ?

How long has yahoo antispy been installed ?

2005-12-07, 04:08
The yahoo antispy has been installed since the beginning of november. Could you please tell me how to run spybot in safe mode? I know how to get into the safe just not how to have spybot run. Thanks

2005-12-07, 04:21
Once if safe mode just run it and check for problems, same as in a normal windows session.

Might be a good idea to run other scans there to, But one at a time.

2005-12-07, 05:22
Thanks for the reply. After running spybot in safe mode it got about halfway through the scan and then froze. I also ran adaware and yahoo, both ran fine and found nothing.

2005-12-07, 05:56
I got a free 5 day trial of mcafee antispyware with dell, so i downloaded it. It did not detect anything during the scan. Then I got this from norton:

Alert: Malicious Script detected
Object: filesystem object
Activity: Get folder

Your computer is halted and needs to do something about this script.

File: MsiExec.exe

What do you want to do?

Then it listed options and I clicked "stop this script from running (reccomended)"

2005-12-07, 10:41
Franky i would turn off nortons script blocking from within its options

Sorry to here SSD is still freezing, i think its a matter of to many resident type protection programs, and now yet another "mcafee antispyware"

2005-12-07, 11:23
ok well thanks. I figured mcafee might find something the other programs hadn't. so then you are reccomending that i uninstall the yahoo and mcafee?

2005-12-07, 14:27
My guess is yahoos programs are cousing conflicts

2005-12-08, 05:50
Ok well i uninstalled the yahoo and i'll try to rescan with spybot and let you know how it goes. Last night my internet brower suddenly closed i and recieved an error saying it had suddenly stopped responding. right after that i recieved an error saying drwatson postmortem debugger has encountered an error and needed to close.

2005-12-08, 06:04
Alright, spybot still froze. This time it got abut 3/4 done. It stopped at 22489/32232: c2.lop

2005-12-08, 09:37
Good guess Lonny, looks like multiple issues.

KMunzta: Try this:

In Spybot click Mode>Advanced to switch to Advanced mode and answer Yes to the question.
Click the Settings button on the lower left pane.
Click File Sets near the upper left.
In the reight pane uncheck all but the last two; Spybots.sbi and Trojans.sbi

Make sure Yahoo is still uninstalled.
Now return to the Spybot S&D menu (button at upper left) and run a scan.

What happens?

2005-12-08, 22:29
after doing as you suggested it did finish the scan without freezing and i got "congratulations no immediate threats were found"

2005-12-09, 00:17
OK, that's because we skipped most of the scans ahead of the group contianing C2.lop which avoided the issue somehow, which I thought might happen.

How much more time we spend on this depends mostly on you, since you'll need to perform the experiments. There's still a couple theories that fit, though this seems to have at least partially proven them.

The fact that you can test through the Spybots.sbi detections containing C2.lop seems to indicate that it isn't these detections themselves that are failing, since they're no longer freezing at that point. This also makes it unlikely that some other specific anti-malware program is interfering like Yahoo appeared to be.

However, it is still possible, though unlikely that another previous detection is helping 'set up' for the C2.lop freeze to occur. The only way I can see to confirm this is to contimue to add back in the other detections tests by working backwards and checking each .sbi file one at a time and running a scan.

Once it does freeze, and I believe it eventually will, try unckecking all tests except the last one checked that 'triggered' the freeze and the Spybots.sbi itself of course. If this still freezes, try one last test please. Turn off the computer, leave it for a half hour (dinner time) come back and re-run that test one more time. We want to know if it's really just the two .sbi groups, all of them together or just a build-up over time that's creating this.

As I said, a bit of work on your part, but you only need to return and post after you've tried most or all of it. Jot down results so you remember them and especially let us know if anything un-expected happens like freezing in some other detection. You've done a great job of indicating exactly where it's freezing to this point.

Thanks for helping track this down.

Oh, one other thing, something I meant to ask that I forgot. What exactly are the specs of your computer; CPU & Speed, RAM, is it XP Home or Pro?

2005-12-09, 01:46
There is not a problem with me doing what you just mentioned. Its XP home edition CPU is 2.80ghz 512mb of ram and i believe the speed is 2.80ghz as well (system properties) I'll check those scans out and get back to you.

2005-12-09, 04:07
Ok well I ran each scan individually and did not run across any problems. So I did a full scan and the computer froze at 17706/32232: keenvalue.euniverse.myfreecursors I did the tracks.uti scan and it said "congratulations no immediate threats were found" but then it said below that 51 problems found. This is what I got:

Cache: 1 entry
Cookie: 1 entry
Internet Explorer: 5 entries
Log: 22 entries
MS Direct Draw: 1 entry
MS Media Player: 4 entries
MS Search Assistant: 1 entry
Windows Explorer: 5 entries
Windows Media sbk: 9 entries
Windows Open With: 1 entry
Windows: 1 entry

I did not click to fix any of these problems found, I didnt know if that was okay or not. Although I did print out all of the results.

2005-12-09, 08:16
Unless Spybot is identifying some piece of malware/spyware, I really don't care what the results are other then freeze or finish, basically pass/fail. I also don't want to confuse things with tracks, which I don't believe is the problem here, unless you can get it to freeze in the tracks scan itself.

I am assuming here that you've left it for at least a few minutes when it freezes to make sure it really is frozen and just not slow? I can't recall if you ever left it long enough to find out, so let me know when you post again.

What I'd like you to try next will sound strange, and it is. This is for testing purposes only and should be reversed once testing is completed.

Open either Windows Explorer or My Computer
Browse to the 'C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Includes' folder
Right click on the Spybots.sbi file and make a copy by dragging it to a white part of the box
When you let go of the file click 'Copy Here'
Make a couple more of these copies of Spybots.sbi the same way
Start (or close and restart) Spybot S&D and go to the File Sets screen
Check all of the [Copy of] Spybots.sbi boxes and uncheck all other filenames

Run a scan and report what happens, including the information as usual if it freezes.

You can just uncheck the copies after the test and leave them to delete later in case we want them again.

2005-12-09, 08:42
Well I don't see spybots.sbi so i assume you mean spybots spyware include file? If so, the scan went fine, no threats nor did it freeze. And yes I do leave it for a few minutes after it freezes and it doesnt do anything, I cant do anything. Should I just fix the problems then that the tracks found?

2005-12-10, 20:29
Well, that wasn't exactly what I expected, but it's why were doing a complete set of tests rather then just skipping to an assumed conclusion.

Tracks; do you know what they really are? All of the lists of filenames when you click Open in programs like your word processor, the list of sites visited when you start typing in the IE Address Bar, the list in the Start Menu, Run box and even the Recent Documents list. Also, any passwords you've told IE to remember. Do you really want to clear all of these things?

These aren't really 'bad', just things you may not want others to know. Up to you, but I've never used it myself. Oh, and it also clears all cookies if you haven't gone into Advanced Mode, Settings, Ignore Cookies, and told it which ones to save. If you've told web sites to remember things like a username, or what color or font you prefer, they're usually stored in these cookies.

Right now I'd like to confirm all your Spybot and other files are up to date. Please do the following to get the portions of a full report that will show this.

Just run another scan that will complete since a successful scan is all that's needed, we don't really care what the resilts are. Then, right-click in the results screen and select 'Save full report to file...' and save it where you can easily find it. Open the file itself by double clicking and copy everything from the beginning up to the 'Startup entries list' section heading, but not the start-ups themselves. Paste this into your next post.

2005-12-13, 05:52
Here they are, as for the updates, everything is currently up to date. This was scanned with just copyofspybots.sbi

Hi KMunzta

Try this please, close SpyBot if open then delete the contents of the Includes folder, 'C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Includes' folder
Run SpyBot check for updates, get them all, then check for problems with spyware only checked, any problems ? do a check with just the tracts selected then one with all checks and let us know what happens.

I've done as you suggested. There were no problems running just the spyware check, but it wouldn't let me do just the tracks by itself. When I did the scan with both of them checked it found 9 log errors. No freezing at this point.

All i can think to suggest is to use a program such as System Security Suite.
then run vairious combinations of check with SSD to see if that helped
If that site is unavailable use this link please
Extract it from the zip file and run setup.exe
after the install you can delete setup.exe and the downloaded zip file
Start the program Check all the boxes under the 'Items to Clear' (clear cookies to) tab and click
'Clear Selected Items'. You will be prompted to reboot, do so.
