How can I change or fix .lnk file associations on Windows 7?


This is not an uncommon problem with vista. These lnk files should open the underlying exe file, but if the registry has been altered they will open something else. The following link will take you to a registry fix program that will restore the correct file association for lnk files.

www.winhelponline.com/fileasso/lnkfix_vista.zip

as always read the instructions and make sure that this will work for your version of windows. Not all fixes work for all versions. If you do not have vista or you have other doubts, go to the microsoft forums for your windows version and search for lnk files.

I don't want Palladium on my computer and I can't delete it


Manual Removal procedure for Palladium Pro The first step you must take in order to remove Palladium Pro is to stop one of the following processes below. Only one of them will be running.
  • Palladium.exe
  • PalladiumPro.exe
  • Palladiumantivirus.exe
  • Z.exe
To Stop this process you can browse to the file location shown below and re-name the file first and then restart your computer. Then browse to that file location again and delete the file.
The next step in Palladium Pro removal is to delete the following file:
Windows XP :
  • C:\Program Files\Palladium Pro\PalladiumPro.exe
  • C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Application Data\Palladium.exe
  • C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Application Data\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Application Data\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Palladium Pro\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\Program Files\Startup\Palladium Pro.lnk
Windows Vista / Windows 7 :
  • C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Palladium.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Palladium Pro\PalladiumPro.exe
  • C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Palladium Pro\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Startup\Palladium Pro.lnk
  • C:\%AppData%\Z.exe
Once you have successfully deleted these traces, Palladium Pro should no longer be running in your machine and now you should run a complete virus scan for the system using Spyware Doctor with Antivirus. This will let you know whether you have been able to remove all the traces of Palladium Pro successfully and also whether there is any other threat still available in the system.
If you need advanced help or an expert we recommend www.onlinecomputerrepair.org
Palladium Pro Registry Removal Procedures Now that your system is free from the Palladium Pro file traces that have been mentioned above, it is time to get rid of the infected registry items.
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "Palladium"
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "Palladium Pro"
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "Palladium Pro"
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Palladium Pro
It is important that you run a complete virus scan for your computer when you are done with the removal procedure to ensure maximum protection for the system. For that, we suggest you to run the scan with Spyware Doctor with Antivirus.
Palladium Pro Directories: XP
  • C:\Program Files\Palladium Pro\
  • UPDATED: We have a report of it being at C:\Windows\Palladium Pro for some users.
Windows 7 / Windows Vista
  • C:\Program Files (x86) \Palladium Pro
Or mail me googolplexcorporation@gmail.com we will remove it through remote desktop support

We are not able to use any of the programs on the laptop. None of the .exe files are functioning. Tried to run a virus program, can't. Tried to edit regedit, can't. IE seems to be on a clock because it...


First, you have to kill the process that's doing all this.
Hit Ctrl-Alt-Del, choose Task Manager, and look for tasks
install.exe
05643921.exe
Kill them both. Now you should be able to run regedit to remove unwanted entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\systemsecurity2009
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\systemsecurity2009 displayicon
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\systemsecurity2009 displayname
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\systemsecurity2009 shortcutpath
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\systemsecurity2009 uninstallstring
And then look for the following files on your hard disk (be sure to include system and hidden files):
05643921.exe
install.exe
system security 2009.lnk
system security 2009 support.lnk

There are a couple of variants of this fake security tool, if yours is different, look for strange processes in Task Manager first, kill them and then look for further help.

How do i get rid of total security the bogus anti virus software?


  1. Print out these instructions as we will need to close every window that is open later in the fix. Due to this malware infecting Internet Explorer, it is suggested that you use Firefox or another browser when following these instructions.

  2. Before we can do anything we must first end the Total Security process so that it does not interfere with the cleaning process. To do this we must first download and install a Microsoft program called Process Explorer. Normally, we would have you use the Windows Task Manager, but this rogue will disable the ability to run it. Please download Process Explorer from the following link and save it to your desktop:

    Process Explorer Download Link

  3. You should now have the Procexp.exe file on your desktop. You now need to rename that file to iexplore.exe. To do this, right-click on the Procexp.exe and select Rename. You can now edit the name of the file and should name it to iexplorer.exe. Once it is renamed you should double-click on the file to launch it.

  4. Once the program is running, you should be presented with a screen similar to the one below.


    procexp.jpg

  5. Scroll through the list of running programs until you see a process named tsc.exe. When you see this process, select the tsc.exe process by left-clicking on it once so it becomes highlighted. Then click on the red X button as shown in the image below. Newer versions of this executable may be using names consisting of random numbers or characters. If you see a process that is composed of random numbers or characters and has a shield icon shield-icon.jpg or a padlock icon padlock-icon.jpg next to it, then you have found the process you need to terminate.


    tsc-process.jpg

  6. When you click on the red X to kill the process, Process Explorer will ask you to confirm if you are sure you want to terminate it as shown in the image below.


    procexp-confirm.jpg

    At this point you should press the Yes button in order to kill the process.

  7. Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, or MBAM, from the following location and save it to your desktop:

    Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Download Link


  8. Once downloaded, close all programs and Windows on your computer, including this one.

  9. Double-click on the icon on your desktop named mbam-setup.exe. This will start the installation of MBAM onto your computer.

  10. When the installation begins, keep following the prompts in order to continue with the installation process. Do not make any changes to default settings and when the program has finished installing, make sure you leave both the Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware checked. Then click on the Finish button.

  11. MBAM will now automatically start and you will see a message stating that you should update the program before performing a scan. As MBAM will automatically update itself after the install, you can press the OK button to close that box and you will now be at the main program as shown below.


    mbam.jpg

  12. On the Scanner tab, make sure the the Perform quick scan option is selected and then click on the Scan button to start scanning your computer for Total Security related files.

  13. MBAM will now start scanning your computer for malware. This process can take quite a while, so we suggest you go and do something else and periodically check on the status of the scan. When MBAM is scanning it will look like the image below.


    scanning.jpg

  14. When the scan is finished a message box will appear as shown in the image below.


    scan-finished.jpg

    You should click on the OK button to close the message box and continue with the TotalSecurity removal process.

  15. You will now be back at the main Scanner screen. At this point you should click on the Show Results button.

  16. A screen displaying all the malware that the program found will be shown as seen in the image below. Please note that the infections found may be different than what is shown in the image.


    mbam-total-security.jpg


    You should now click on the Remove Selected button to remove all the listed malware. MBAM will now delete all of the files and registry keys and add them to the programs quarantine. When removing the files, MBAM may require a reboot in order to remove some of them. If it displays a message stating that it needs to reboot, please allow it to do so. Once your computer has rebooted, and you are logged in, please continue with the rest of the steps.

  17. When MBAM has finished removing the malware, it will open the scan log and display it in Notepad. Review the log as desired, and then close the Notepad window.

  18. You can now exit the MBAM program.
Your computer should now be free of the TotalSecurity program. If your current anti-virus solution let this infection through, you may want to consider purchasing the PRO version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to protect against these types of threats in the future.
If you are still having problems with your computer after completing these instructions, then please follow the steps outlined in the topic linked below:

My antivirus wont run and i cant install any other antivirus


Have you tried to start the system in safe mode? F6 I think, then start in safe mode with network. then try to start your norton AV again and try to do a liveupdate, then scan your system and see if it works.. otherwise just uninstall norton, then reinstall it and run live update again and scan your system. My thought is that you have a serious virus on your sysstem.. best thing I can say is WHEN you get your antivirus to work again make a habit of scanning every file you download and from whatever site you dl from.. do NOT believe it when a window pops up and says you need to update your antivirus software.. ONLY use the liveupdate. Another POSSIBLE fix is to use the RESTORE option and try to restore to a point BEFORE you started noticing problems with your antivirus

Take my notes as a guide and hopefully this will work for you.

1. Start > Run > msconfig > “Start Up” tab > Disable All
2. “Services” tab > Check box “Hide Microsoft Services” > Disable All
2.5 Exit out, but don't reboot yet
3. Start > Right-click “My Computer” > “Properties” > “System Restore” > Check box “Turn off restore on Hard disks”
4. Start > Run > type %temp% > Edit Select All > Shift-Delete
Reboot machine
1. Combofix.exe. This program will run on its own. Also, it will likely wish to reboot the machine. Let it complete.
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
2. WinSockFix.exe. This will fix any issues with the network connection.

3. SuperAntispyware.exe. This will remove all remaining spyware, tracking cookies, and browser hijackers.
Check to see that your favorite internet browser is working. Install or re-enable your favorite antivirus that failed to catch this in the first place.

M3plugin.dll missing module at startup


Your web browser has been hijacked by "adware" called "My Web Search"... The fix is involved, but not impossible.

First, uninstall the My Web Search program using standard Add/Remove Programs. Also uninstall any of the following items associated with FunWebProducts.
  • My Web Search (Smiley Central or FWP product as applicable)
  • My Way Speedbar (Smiley Central or other FWP as applicable)
  • My Way Speedbar (AOL and Yahoo Messengers) (beta users only)
  • My Way Speedbar (Outlook, Outlook Express, and IncrediMail)
  • Search Assistant - My Way
Download a free copy of a program called HijackThis.

Reboot your Computer and run the HijackThis program.

Scan for and fix any of the entries shown below.

  • R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {00A6FAF6-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\1.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL
  • O2 - BHO: MyWebSearch Search Assistant BHO - {00A6FAF1-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\1.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL
  • O2 - BHO: mwsBar BHO - {07B18EA1-A523-4961-B6BB-170DE4475CCA} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSBAR.DLL
  • O3 - Toolbar: My &Web Search - {07B18EA9-A523-4961-B6BB-170DE4475CCA} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSBAR.DLL
  • O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MyWebSearch Email Plugin] C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\1.bin\mwsoemon.exe
  • O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MyWebSearch Email Plugin] C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\1.bin\mwsoemon.exe
  • O4 - Startup: MyWebSearch Email Plugin.lnk = C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSOEMON.EXE
  • O4 - Global Startup: MyWebSearch Email Plugin.lnk = C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSOEMON.EXE
  • O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://bar.mywebsearch.com/menusearch.html?p=ZWYYYYYYYYUS
  • O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} - http://ak.imgfarm.com/images/nocache/funwebproducts/ei/MyWebSearchInitialSetup1.0.0.8-2.cab
Next, open My Computer, Drive C, and double-click on the Program Files folder
Right-click and delete the folders for:
  • FunWebProducts
  • MyWebSearch
MyWebSearch should now be completely uninstalled from your computer.
There will be some minor registry entries left behind by the uninstall, however these can be cleaned up by running SpyBot Search and Destroy. SpyBot is also available online as a free download.

Good luck!!

SOLUTION


This is a trace of a virus which remained in the registry will try to load on startup.

1. Open Run , type regedit and press Enter

2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

and check for the key Shell, the value of this must be Explorer.exe . If you can see some other after that like Explorer.exe C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\2.bin... , then remove the second file from the value. It must be only Explorer.exe

3. Then check for the key Userinit. The value must be C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe, (including the comma) . If after that some thing is there ,delete it.

4. Restart your system .
