But the problem is that I think Avast is preventing you from installing these programs ..

Well thousands before you have been able to download/run these tools, if you are experiencing a problem downloading and running these then post the error/alert that you are receiving.

Yes, all of them, I turn off the computer and turn on again, then the programs work correctly, but after a few minutes, appears "The threat has been detected", and there's more to use porgramas, they close themselves .. and always when I go off is as if open programs, but as they were invisible. Would solve the problem if I did a system restore to another date?

OK we will need to temporarily delete the wscript file

Go to C:\Windows\system32

Right click Wscript.exe
Select Properties
Select Security Tab
Select Advanced
Select Owner
Select Edit
Select your account
Click Apply
OK the warning
Click OK
Then delete the file


Once done reboot the computer, you may well get some warnings at the start, ignore them

Then  

Download OTL  to your Desktop
Secondary link
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.


  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
netsvcs
BASESERVICES
%SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
/md5start
services.*
explorer.exe
winlogon.exe
Userinit.exe
svchost.exe
winsock.*
/md5stop
CREATERESTOREPOINT


  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Post  both logs

Hola Emanuel.

Si no entiendes algo hazmelo saber para explicarte. Sigue las instrucciones de Essexboy al pie de la letra y no hagas nada por tu parte si el no lo pide. Por ahora lo estas haciendo bien.

***English***

If you do not understand something, let me know so I can explain it to you. Follow Essexboy's instructions step by step and do not do anything on your own unless he asks for. You are doing OK though.

Vista 7

Microsoft never made a Vista 7. So either you have Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Hi,

My brother got the same kind of problem :

1- http://copertps.com/a/

2- http://specrtop.org/a/


He's far away and not very confortable with PCs so it's difficult for me to get all the information I need, but it seems flash disinfector (http://flash-disinfector.en.uptodown.com/download) solved the problem (whilst it didn't say it found any problem)
The pc is now working find.

note : The fulls steps (and it seems the problem was solved only after flash disinfector) :

http://www.delphiz.fr/telechargement.php?maj=antim4

Installation OK, but no way to make it run

Then with avast  " full minutious scan " (my translation may be not correct) : nothing found (!?)

http://www.delphiz.fr/telechargement.php?maj=antim3 (previous version) : everything's OK

Install of Flash disinfector, run once with no external drive (from which the problem came) then run with the external drive plugged in; no warnings or anything, but then the problem did not occur anymore.

Hope it will help

Just a word to add that the pc was running windows XP, and to add a link to this topic :
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=123017.45
covering the "http://specrtop.org/a/" problem by another way than mine.

Sorry, but I'm speaking of the same issue, a threat has been detected : http://copertps.com/a/ etc. which seemed not to be solved in this topic.
I was just explaining how I got rid of it to, not asking any help.
Regards,

I am able to remove this infection very effectively now.  Unfortunately the OP did not respond
