    Adware and Task manager disabled HELP!

    Hi, newbie here and I got a problem, duhhhh, could anyone be of some service?

    I get and error message saying that my task manager has been disabled by the admin (which is me). I have found a program to re-enable it, but every time I restart the computer, task manager has been disabled again.

    This all started when some how I got infected by a virus (don't know name) & adware. I have ran anti-spyware & virus software. It seems the virus has been successfully deleted, but I still have the adware & a Trojan coming back after each scan & deletion. The names of the 3 adware/trojan I have are:

    Trojan Horse: vesbiz downloader
    Adware: letsroll911.org hijacker
    Adware: ist software

    Procedures done:
    1. Ran SpySweeper & Norton Virus scanner in safe & normal mode.
    2. Cleaned Temp folder, Temp Internet, Cookies, and IE history.
    3. When I ran the scanners I made sure the adware/trojan wasn't running in memory (by going to task manager).
    4. Updated Windows

    I don't know if this would be of any use, but my ZoneAlarm has alerted me that kernels64.exe is trying to access the internet and this has never tried to access the internet before.

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

    BTW, I’ve heard a lot of people saying use “hijack this”. What is this program and what does it do?
    Mmmmm.... Bacon

    hey

    Hijack This is a program that shows you what processes are running, like Task Manager on steriods... it allows you to delete things that shouldnt be there but, be careful what you do! dont delete anything if you dont know what it is. click HERE to download it and post your result back here so i can try and see what you having running that shouldnt be.

    Cool

    kernels64 is a dodgey name. can u track its location based on firewall alerts?

    if so.. grab the file, and submitt it to https://virusscan.jotti.org for a quick scan
    jotti should give u a scan result, identifying what infection the file belongs to. give us the names and i can have a look at it.

    but every time I restart the computer, task manager has been disabled again.
    This means that somewhere, somehow, there is still a program being run on system startup that does this. The spyware has not been uninstalled successfully.

    In your system registry, check HKey_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run for any programs that should not be starting when the system is booted. Also check HKey_Current_Machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run for the same thing. If you find anything there, remove it. Make a backup of that key first so if you fubar it, you can restore it to its original state.

    It might have also installed itself as a system service. Under the control panel/administrative tools, open up Services, and check if there is something there that shouldn't be. Make sure to remember which services you disable, if any, since if you disable the wrong ones, you will ened to re-enable them, or your system may become verrryy unstable.

    And of course, check the startup folder for anything that shouldn't be there too.

    If you find a file that any of these searches refers you to, delete it and see if it reappears when you start the computer. If it does, try deleting it and then placing an empty file with the same name in its place with "type nul > filename". Sometimes that works too.

    I would also like to restate that HijackThis and this tutorial can be of great assistance in this matter.

    Also, some trojans are very effective at hiding their presence. Simply because they do not appear in the task manager does not mean they are not running. Start the system in safe mode before you clean it (even still, you can't be 100% sure) and check there. It's more likely to not be running in safe mode... but not for sure.

    WDD,

    HKCU\..\Run: [StatBar] C:\Program Files\Globe Software\StatBar\StatBar.exe

    O23 - Service: Ati HotKey Poller - ATI Technologies Inc. - C:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exe

    O23 - Service: Prevx Agent (PrevxAgent) - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Prevx Pro\PXAgent.exe" -f (file missing

    Those entries bother me, im not quite sure what they are but you should have them looked at by someone who does.... dont delete them til u get them looked at though, and you also have the Adobe BHO running.... which isnt a terrible thing but i think you could live without running adobe all the time. Im also wondering why you have so much Logitech software running? I have a logitech cam and I assume you do too but I dont know why you have so many instantences ( sp?) of it running.

    Goodluck and welcome to AO please take a sec to look over the FAQ.

    that's ok, I've had that for a while. It's a status bar that shows how much HD space I have, CPU speed, RAM, etc...

    That's one of foxyloxley's programs I've downloaded from his post on spyware.

    Yea I got a lot of crap on my PC, and never uninstall it. I have a logitech keyboard and joystick(never used it tho) thats all. Adobe yea I could turn it off, but again I'm new at this so I dunno how...

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\kernels64.exe <--- Trojan

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing < --- related to a redirect ?

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [StatBar] C:\Program Files\Globe Software\StatBar\StatBar.exe &lt;--- not sure it its legit. Did you install it ?

    Thats a start. I am not sure what to make of the repeated entry.

    The Ati2evxx.exe is related to your graphics card.

    Well after running spybot, ccleaner, cwshredder, and all the other programs foxyloxley recommended it seems kernels64.exe is gone, until I restart my computer then HiJackThis says it's back... I've ran all the programs in safe mode and check the task manager to see if any suspicious programs were running before the scan. kernels64.exe could be it because I never seen it before. Should I disable it using hijackthis (kernels64.exe)?

    I've installed this
