Need help removing Scorpion Saver Malware
« on: March 04, 2014, 06:37:50 PM »
I've been fighting with malware for a couple weeks on my Windows 7 laptop.  The (corporate issued) Symantec Endpoint Protection has been notifying me repeatedly (sometimes a couple times a minute) that an "Adware.BL" risk has been identified, always in a file with a name like "DWH****.tmp", and always located in the ...\AppData\Local\Temp folder. The files get analyzed and quarantined, but I continue to get notified.

Doing some research, it appears that this may be caused by ScorpionSaver.  I find in my Programs and Features section of the Control Panel, that two programs, ScorpionSaver and ScorpionSaver Services are installed, but when I try to uninstall them, I get the message: The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.  It is trying to search the c:\\temp\\ folder for either the file named "InstallServices64.msi" (for ScorpionSaver Services) or "t.msi" (for Scorpion Saver), and will not allow me to remove either program.  I've searched my files for anything called "scorpion", or similar, without luck.

I found this listing on the forum from a few months ago:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=144530.30

I'm hoping someone can help me.  Thanks!

Need help removing Scorpion Saver Malware
this is done in the viruses and worms forum section

at top in that forum section you find a Logs to assist in cleaning malware guide, follow it and attach Malwarebytes and OTL logs

Also, thanks in advance for your help, and sorry that I didn't find the right Forum topic earlier.  Do I need to do something to move this thread to the right topic?

No, I can have someone come here.

Just a question though. Did you crash recently (Last Month)?

[2014/03/04 09:18:37 | 985,170,680 | ---- | M] () -- C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP

Also, any reason for the VMWare software on your PC? (Virtual Machines)?

Edit: Pondus has notified someone for you. Also, if you have crashed recently, the log might be helpful if they ask for it.

To me it looks like these things need to be fixex.
But please do nothing until someone with more knowledge about OTL confirms it.

Hi there, it appears that this may be a second tab opening is that correct ?

You will need to uninstall either Avast or Norton as two AV's is not good

Warning This fix is only relevant for this system and no other, using on another computer may cause problems

Be advised that when the fix commences it will shut down all running processes and you may lose the desktop and icons, they will return on reboot

Run OTL
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following

You would be correct. Most of that is rubbish. Lol, you missed the .DMP file from the Memory. However.

I'm behind on responding, sorry.
1) yes, I did crash earlier today.  It happened as I was installing Avast!
2) I am in the US (eastern time)
3) the Malwarebytes log was from yesterday,  I had hoped that was recent enough.  I can re-scan
4) I can uninstall Avast, but not Symantec (corporate controlled). On the other hand, the file quarantining has stopped ever since I installed Avast - should I?
5) Double checking - should I run the OTL Fix now?
