« on: January 31, 2012, 02:21:31 AM »
I am trying to rebuild my files and programs and I am following essexboy's blog on the subject http://forum.avast.com/index.php?action=profile;u=11091 I've downloaded some programs he suggested and I am posting results of the scans here I hope someone can make sense of these and give me some direction because I am stuck. As part of the steps he suggests I downloaded and ran RogueKiller scan but I don't know which files to delete??, enclosed pleae find few reports from this scan.

Hi lets see if the new aswMBR cures this blighter

Go Start > Run
Type in CMD
In the black box that opens type in the following

aswMBR.exe -ap 1

As soon as aswMBR completes reboot and then re-run the aswMBR scan
Post the log here

I ran CMD, that brought up black screen but I get "aswMBR.exe -ap 1  is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file" when I ran the above command.

Dir of C:\ and dir:\ of few directories I can still access show no files even though hard drive is 2/3 full also, how do I restore my download program to download fix files from Internet .

Incidentally I Google d aswMBR.exe and several reports like this one: http://www.removespywarereviewed.com/exe-a/aswmbr-exe.html say it's a virus!!! what say you?.

aswmbr is a master boot record scanning tool.  It is legit and made by a guy who works for Avast!.  If you have any doubts to this, browse the virus&worms section of the forums and look at how often it is used in the last month alone, let alone the last year. 

Googling whether or not something is a virus is a quick way to get scammed or further infected, unless you carefully check every sites reputation that comes up in the search results.

Its on you whether you want to continue, but think about it....there is not way one of the worlds most popular anti-virus would condone spreading an infection around their support forum.  There is nothing for you to worry about.
Signature?  But I gots no pen....

a file name is just a file name.... i can download a virus sample and rename it to Seacap.exe
so you need to know what search result you can trust..

Are you needing a download link to aswmbr?

Yes and a "Download Program" to download it with!, it's the Catch 22. Virus denied access to my files and programs and I no longer have the ability to download anything from the Internet, can you feel my pain?

You will need to run all the programmes in the list - especially the RogueKiller as your files/folders are apparently missing.

You can run RogueKiller from as USB drive

EDIT : just looked at the link and it is a scam

Essexboy, I need detailed instructions how to rebuild my computer to original state. I've been kicking around computers since 1993 and had Avast installed for at least 6 years I have limited experience in using malware cleaners, rootkis detectors or rogue killers etc.. I know this has be a  step by step process to rebuilt files but I don't have a clue what comes first is it rebuilding MBR or something else and what utilities do you use and how to use these tools. Right now I find it all just a little confusing so you'll have to be gentle.

1. My first problem is I am unable to download anything from Internet because "download" doesn't work on my computer so how do I restore this function?
2. What website could I get a clean copy of this Rogue Killer maybe I can have someone emailed it to me and run it from email would that work?
Thank you.

Yes I read your post and don't really understand what to do here?.
I assume link you're referring to is Essexboy's "Logs to assist in cleaning malware". I got Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and OTL and I posted OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. earlier but then my DOWNLOAD PROGRAM died and I CAN NOT DOWNLOAD aswMBR.exe, the RogueKiller or any other fix files from links you supply to continue with cleaning the computer. Q-do you understand the implication of what I am saying here?, I wish there was a way to chat here posting has it's limitations.
