    Default An important point

    The site/software Duckware I mentioned in the previous post is without a doubt legitimate, my concern is that it has been modified as I don't recognize it at all. If anyone has info on the entry on the log I highlighted I would be interested to hear it.
    Cheers

    The multiple addresses that showed for adlice (RogueKiller), are genuine and correct. Over time/years there have been several.

    and I see network connections from time to time that I can't make sense of

    I also in mDNS devices at random times, a program called, I believe, tcp-scan-local(close approximation only), it says its attached to my Kodak software... the one with all the unsigned files, and is connecting to a lot more than I believe it really needs access to
    Anything on your computer that has an auto updater wrote into the program will connect randomly for an update, some are necessary and some I think are just a bunch of hooey.
    All I can do is take out the task associated to the tool to stop traffic for the update.

    At one time did you download something related to PhotoFinder?
    From what I can find the file (Duckware) C:\Users\oldman\x.exe could possibly be from there.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Start Farbar Recovery Scan Tool with Administrator privileges
    (Right click on the FRST icon and select Run as administrator)

    highlight on the text below and select Copy.
    beginning with Start:: and finishing with End::

    C:\Windows\Temp\*.*
    End::
    Press the Fix button.
    If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
    When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
    If you could please, uninstall/remove any version you have on your machine for RogueKiller. and we can attempt to download an updated version.
    Before running the tool if you could temporarily disable Nortons so it can run without conflict.

    • Wait for the scan to complete
    • On completion, the results will be displayed
    • Check every single entry (threat found), and click on the Remove Selected button
    • On completion, the results will be displayed. Click on the Open Report button in the bottom left corner, followed by the Open TXT button (also in the bottom left corner)
    • This will open the report in Notepad. Copy/paste its content in your next reply

    Default Logs, script and strange things.

    About the logs, After running the latest FRST fix, (the script did its thing flawlessly, thanks again) I was able to download RK and Mbam through your links, run them without any problem and get the logs posted.
    As for the "strange things" part of of the title... At this point, the best I've been able to get out of the browser is by sticking with the bookmarks and internal links on legit sites, although I'm still a Yahoo cookie magnet. I managed to get the browser to switch to google search,
    this left me with a search bar that gave me the results you will see in the attached Screen shots. (irrelevant, useless results) Note that in both examples I searched "jexepackers" in one and "jexepacker threat" in the other. this was done from the search bar then, the resulting url, I copy/pasted to the notepads you see. Funny, how a browser can misread an entry then result something like "jetpack" but I guess nobody is perfect, eh? Now, about why I'm searching jexepackers, (as well as code.jquery) I see these things in my "shark logs" this leads to learning what I can about wpad as well as a lot of other security settings and "stuff".

    From what I can find the file (Duckware) C:\Users\oldman\x.exe could possibly be from there."

    No, not intentionally but a drive by is always a possibility. I have a few thoughts on this duck "stuff", could be related to "Donald Duck" (More on that in updates).

    After yesterdays post, I was clearing Super cookies with my STM program. As I scrolled over the process monitor, I came across a FF browser running after I closed the window. This is something I've never seen before but the most concerning part to me, is that on the program description area of the line was Text from a post (update) that I had made to you. This has never happened and have no idea why it displayed that way. I'll keep you updated.

    Cheers

    I have disabled the Phone in my win10 system some time ago, was surprised to see it running yesterday with a couple accounts I don't recognize. I'm attaching some screen shots to demonstrate, also my Norton settings are still being an issue. a couple shots of from the IE settings page, there are a total of 15 of these "firewall" items, those are new to me also. any thoughts?

    The windows phone will be there till its completely removed. Would include anything related to it throughout the computer.
    From what I was reading (Not understanding much of it Remove-AppxPackage? ) It's not uncommon to have left over firewall rules for many items, some are games, some are for tools, messengers, very long list.

    At this time please uninstall Java 8 Update 211
    if later you should run into something that its required you can download the most current version.

    Your Norton settings, it's possible it should be removed and then downloaded again. Not saying this is a cure but, it might possibly re-enable something thats giving you fits now or, I can give you a list of free or paid for antivirus and security suites.

    I really don't think the issues here is malware related, it's through some type of setting in a program somewhere thats not giving the results we're looking for but,
    Just for peace of mind I'd like for you to run a rootkit scan.

    You will probably have to temporarily disable Nortons for this tool to run.
    if you should get some type of alert this is a malicious tool, let me assure you it is not and it is often used for a deeper scanning.

    Follow the instructions in the thread below. Make sure to download the MBAR version linked in it. Let me know if you're not able to launch it and run a scan.

    run a scan, delete everything it finds, and then copy/paste the content of the mbar-log-DATE-(TIME).txt log that is located in the MBAR folder here after.

    Default Clean roots

    "The windows phone will be there till its completely removed."
    Done, those two unknown accounts were creeping me out. I let the STM program do it for me. Not sure how exactly the phone program was removed but it involved about one and a half command lines in power shell. It's worth noting that I haven't had any conflicts or issues (that I know of) so far, since completely removing it from the system.

    The Firewall entry stuff in IE Cache? I'm finding that to be a very dynamic list, the entries I showed last post have disappeared. I'll just watch and learn for a while to understand what I'm seeing, that never hurts.

    "At this time please uninstall Java 8 Update 211"
    Thanks so much for that! wasn't sure if it was needed at the moment. The jscript stuff, until I learn a lot more about it, is kinda spooky to me from what I'm reading lately.

    "Firefox had an update this morning, it says it has upped your protection against ad trackers."
    I grabbed that as soon as it was available, a couple of notable additions were in cookie blocking, you have an option for cryptominers and fingerprinting. I'm running them both enabled and haven't seen any conflicts yet.

    "Turning off Autofill in Firefox"
    "Clear Your Cache on Any Browser"
    Great info! thanks, I really need to do that.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to export the fixlog from mbar, it came up clean, but I'm not seeing any way to export a clean scan result. I'm ok with clean scans, especially the mbar. It agrees with Nortons root scanner, that things are clean. You can't do much better than that.

    I did do an R&R on the Norton (I noticed it saving user settings so I'll repeat with advanced options) but the malware issues are, I'm very certain, cleaned up. Thank you so much for the links and advice.

    At this point, I'll go back to learning what I can about avoiding the problems in the first place. I have a lot to learn about security and settings in general, what do I use for proxy settings? for example. right now, I'm on system settings. (which should be covered by Norton)

    Again, thanks and have an awesome weekend!

    Read the below for quick info related to using a proxy, proxy settings.
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...ttings-firefox


    A tool I use and feel secure with is an addon NoScript.
    People do get tired of it quickly it seems but I just enable/disable it when needed and it hasn't stopped me from doing anything I need to do. (I keep the addons window open at all times to make this a quick procedure)
    When web sites or if something wont run, just simply disable it and refresh the page. I find it amazing how web pages add java script for so many details on their sites. One major venue in getting infected is clicking on links and being redirected or injected with (fill in the blank here since so there are so many different malicious items using this technique)

    Firefox
    https://noscript.net/

    Google Chrome

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I think we can remove tools and quarantine folders now, good chance in future virus scans they'll be found and then some might freak out a bit.

    • Please download DelFix or from Here and save the file to your Desktop.
    • Double-click DelFix.exe to run the programme.
    • Place a checkmark next to the following items:
    • Activate UAC
    • Remove disinfection tools
    • Click the Run button.
    • -- This will remove the specialized tools we used to disinfect your system.
      Any leftover logs, files, folders or tools remaining on your Desktop which were not removed can be deleted manually (right-click the file + delete
      ).

    Default Epilogue

    Thanks for those links, I'll be making good use of that stuff. In particular the noscript looks exactly like what I need.
    Norton of course flagged delfix as threat and quarantined it as a SAPE. I'm familiar enough with the tools here by now to "replace" the tool and run it, just thought other users should be aware of this when they come across it in the future. It seems they flag it because it has to have SAPE characteristics to do what its supposed to do, (and it did)
    I attached a shot of the warning page from Symantec, any ideas about letting them know this file is good? They know thousands of times, community members have used the file without problems.

    Best way I can think of, people who have accounts with Nortons is to keep reporting it.
    In their eyes, I can't because, I'm just a small tech they don't know and probably really don't care.

    Safe Surfing.
