Removing PS Guard, how?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
My computer is infected with the PS Guard virus or malware or whatever
it is. Can someone offer some assistance on how to eliminate this.
I've run Adware, Spybot, Ewido, and several other programs, all of
which pick it up, but all say "Error" when trying to remove it.

Your help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Caesar

Two part reply..

Perform Part 1 then perform Part 2.

If the first two parts don't work, perform the alternate section.

It is suggested that you execute each tool in Normal Mode then in Safe Mode.

If you are using any version of Sun Java that is prior to JRE Version 5.0,
then you are strongly urged to remove any/all versions that are prior to JRE/JSE
Version 5.0.  There are vulnerabilities in them and they are actively being
exploited.
This is most likely why you got infected with malware.

Therefore, it is highly suggested that if there are any prior versions of Sun
Java
to Version 5 on the PC that they be removed and Sun Java JRE/JSE Version 5.0
Update 7
be installed ASAP.

Simple check, look under...
C:\Program Files\Java

The only folder under that folder should be the latest version...

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_07


http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp



Part 1
-----------

Use noahdfear's SmitFraud, SpyAxe, SpyFalcon, et. al., removal tool --
SmitRem.exe
http://noahdfear.geekstogo.com/click%20counter/click.php?id=1

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic43659.html


Part 2
-----------

Download SmitFraud.exe from the URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/SmitFraud.exe

Execute;  SmitFraud.exe  { Note: You must accept the default of C:\McAfee }
Choose;   Unzip
Choose;   Close

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go
through your
FireWall to enable WGET.EXE to download the needed McAfee related files.

Execute;  c:\mcafee\clean.bat
{ or Double-click on 'Clean Link' in c:\mcafee }

A final report in HTML format called C:\mcafee\Normal_ScanReport.HTML or
C:\mcafee\Safe_ScanReport.HTML will be generated.  At the end of the scan, it
will be
displayed in your browser (Opera, FireFox or Internet Explorer).  However, if
you are using
WinXP, Win2K or Win2003 your system will be left in a state where you will have
to manually
shutdown/reboot the PC.  On Win9x/ME platforms the report will not be shown in
your bowser
but your PC will automatically be shutdown.  It is suggested that you move the
report out of
c:\mcafee before performing another scan.

It would be best to scan in both Safe Mode and in Normal Mode and save a copy of
the HTML
report for each session.


ALTERNATE:

Part 1
-----------

Secured2K's SpyAxe, PSGuard, Smitfraud, Sinnaka and Alemod removal tool.

Re: Removing PS Guard, how?

David,
  I appreciate you help. However, for some reason I am quite sick and
have not felt like doing anything. I went to the doctor's today and
got some meds. I am going to rest this weekend and see if I can feel
better. Then on Monday, I will try and do what you said below.
  I did not want you to think I did not appreciate the help you have
given me.

Thanks,
Caesar
