Ok, first off - I am a computer dumbass. I know enough to follow the instructions of those more knowledgeable than myself, and that's about it.

Background - I have been running this HP dv5000 laptop without virus protection for almost a year. I was under the impression that the wireless network I was operating under was protecting my computer. Obviously, I was very wrong.

After I started getting pop-ups, I asked some members here for help. I was referred to Avast and Spybot. Long story short, I had about 19,831 "parasites" on spybot and 24 viruses on Avast. I went on a pest killing rampage that claimed the lives of 12 of my Windows files. I wondered if deleting them was going to have some unpleasant consequences, but I really had no choice.

After that I was virus free, but my comp was running slower than normal. After a TON of help from jopes ( thanks again :beer ), we found out that I was really virus free, but that those 12 Windows files were kinda important. This would have been no problem, but my computer didn't come with a Windows disk, and my Windows Update no longer functions :banghead .

So, that brings us to the question: how can I get these files and get them back where they need to be? Luckily I am not so stupid that I didn't write down the names of the files I slashed and burned.

They are as follows:

1) C:\Windows\b104.exe
2) C:\Windows\mrofina72.exe[UPX]
3) C:\Windows\Sm9uYXRoYW4gQ27nYw7u2XJv\asappsrv.dll
4) C:\Windows\Sm9uYXRoYW5gQ27nYw7u2XJv\command.exe
5) C:\Windows\system32\esayd**7.exe (not really sure of this one)
6) C:\Windows\system32\etmysifm.exe
7) C:\Windows\system32\inaeccme.exe
8) C:\Windows\system32\neijhj.dll\[PECompact]
9) C:\Windows\system32\ssqrr.dll
10) C:\Windows\system32\xobcsfis.exe
11) C:\Windows\system32\xxyywvu.dll
12) C:\Windows\µppPatch\iexplorer.exe\[UPX] ( where the "µ" is, it's supposed to be a
)

Yes, that's a picture of a Jesus Fish...I forgot the name of the actual letter... :brownbag

So...anyone know how/where I can recover these files. Thanks for the help :beer

Those files SHOULD be gone.


They ARE the spyware shit. :rofl:

You done good Hopper.

Get CCleaner, clean the shit out of your registry, and use it to get rid of all the other temp files and crap out of there. Download Windows Defender from Microsuck and install that, and stop going on porn. :twak Defrag, reboot, defrag, reboot, and then run HiJack This, and give us a printout of what's currently running in the computer.

Operating under any network doesn't make you bulletproof, it just means assbags like me have to do one extra step to get to you.

If you're running a wireless network, be sure that once your computer workstations or laptops have achieved the goal of finding the network, quit broadcasting your network. (in basic terms)

Why? Because assbags like me will steal your wireless network connection and do things like send you e-mails from your own e-mail address telling you how to protect your network.

Don't ever delete or not update IE. Even if you run FireFox. Windows requires IE to perform updates, some people choose not to update windows to avoid problems, doing this also means that you avoid upgrades. Eventually that will catch up to you.

I don't care for IE, i run Opera and Firefox. Some people like IE, it's whatever you prefer, it's your computer, one browser has it's pros and cons just like others have their pro's and con's. The decision is ultimately up to what you like. But if you choose to run something else, don't delete IE. Just put all your security settings up to maximum and let it set on your computer.

Crap Cleaner a.k.a Ccleaner will do a very thorough job of removing files you don't need and fixing and maintaining your registry.

Damnation...I downloaded the new IE, and I still can't update Windows.

I have left Automatic Update on since I got the computer, but I'm starting to doubt that it's functioning since I can't update whenever I want...

When I try I get this nice, vague message:

Thanks for the help :beer

:stupid

Ever since w2k, IE has become an integral part of the OS. Everything is tied together, and keeping everything up to date is the best way to keep your computer secure.
