Windows 7: Dumping physical memory to disk

27 Jan 2012   #21

Win 7 Starter
 
 

So this is what happened, Revo didn’t find MSE, but i remembered that the MSE setup file was still on the laptop, so i deleted it, from the recycle bin as well and voila, Avira is on and checking

Regarding the updates left, should I install them? The other two were successful

Dell site: I tried switching browsers, I closed all Mozilla tabs, I killed the process in Task Manager, opened new for both Yes and No, same with IE, I’ll just have to wait and see if the Trojan is still there, perhaps he got scared and ran off…screenshot

Sidenote and background while I got you on the other end: what this whole situation started with, I think, was that after closing the lid of the laptop and leaving it like that let’s say over night, sometimes, in the morning, I used to get the message Windows has recovered from an unexpected error, would you like to send a report bla bla and all applications were closed, he practically shut down.
In addition, windows explorer froze from time to time and then the message was something like Windows explorer has to be restarted or the like, I can’t remember and don’t have a screenshot either. The thing is I got the message with the explorer thing again today, so maybe there is more to it. I haven’t gotten it ever since the bluescreen so I thought everything would be ok again. Any remarks? Ideas?


Update: Avira finished scanning, that setup file from the other day seems to be deleted, two others were found infected instead:
'C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\niaxama.dll' infected with 'TR/Trash.Gen' [trojan]
'C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\niaxama.dll' infected with 'TR/Spy.Gen' [trojan]
they were both quarantined, can i delete them from the respective folders? i mean they are in system 32 so....

Yes try the updates. report back how it went.

Dell site: I'm leaning towards the last reason "service tag is not in right fomat, if there are spaces or hyphens do not include them, just put the string of numbers/letters in box.

On sidenote: are you in the habit of closing all apps/programs before you close the lid or do you leave some open?

On the Avira scan: Just let Avira do what it was designed to do, and remove them for you. It will probably ask you to reboot, even if it doesn't you go ahead and reboot.

Caught me at a bad time, I just woke up, and saw you were still in-forum, so I rushed a reply out.
I can make them longer if you like.

We'll have to look into that. See below.

Ahh, yeah!
Sleep, and hibernation is still a sore spot with 7's power management.
It is supposed to return you to where you left off, but usually has problems.
My machine (see specs) gives me the same reaction if I leave programs open.

They should be.
The usual procedure is:
  • To let the program run a scan.
  • When it is finished It will tell you one of two things, your machine is okay/clean or it found something that is contrary to its database.
  • It should give you the option to look at the files or send them to quarantine with the option to remove them.
  • You pick remove, it removes them, and then asks you to reboot because if you don't they will still reside on your machine, and rather than forget it is better to reboot.
I do not have Avira so the above is a variation on a theme.
Some information on Avira: Avira Documentations Pick what pertains to you.

You should double check your wi-fi security.
That trojan Avira found: Encyclopedia entry: TrojanProxy:Win32/Sefbov.E - Microsoft Malware Protection Center Is an email bot designed to turn your 1012 into a zombie sender.

Be very careful when you are out using any hotspots, including the University!

See Laptops section. Does it look similar? What is a Service Tag and How Do I Locate It?

Try using this, you will need to use IE instead of FF or else it will give you a warning: Dell - Support

) whatever helps get my laptop in good shape

yes, i know my service tag as i've had past problems with it and had to report to Dell, mine is a 7 Alpha-numeric code

well i thought that is the good thing about laptops you just close/open the lid and have all the applications where you left them...sheesh, people with no computer knowledge...

i hope i get rid of all the viruses with Avira now, my firewall is on so i thought that should be enough

haha, the Dell site can't find my service tag and asks me to enter it manually but there is no field for that...i think we can agree that this will not work ) check out the screenshot

How did your communication with Dell turn out, were they able to help?

Now that I have a new reason, let me look into the power management situation, maybe I can help the both of us.

Download, and install this: SpywareBlaster® | Prevent spyware and malware. Free download. , and or WinPatrol
They are extra layers of protection.

Try Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit or Speccy - System Information - Free Download . They might be able to scrub that number out of the Dell files.

Well, the Dell guy was very nice and helpful, my problem wasn’t really a one to be solved I guess (from time to time, for a matter of a few days, my display would just revert colors, I mean what was supposed to be black was green, what was white was pink and so on, and it was not reproducible, so after emailing back and forth the problem was gone and hasn’t appeared since, but I guess they could have helped somehow)

Let me know on the power management situation

I chose winpatrol cos the dog is so cute and Speccy, looks cooler – women huh?

Sounds like one of those "By Proxy" arraignments.

Sure will! Hopefully in the near future.

"All I wanted to do was to come home, sit down, kick off my shoes, and put my feet up.
It was a long day. I reached over for the remote, and put the radio on.
Then looked in my tote bag, and pulled my 1012 out so I could check my emails.
There was one email from 7Fourms
Attachment 195329
Nothing yet, still looking ......Anak"


I got a laugh, I was going to translate that, but Look how google translate handled it :

Es war ein langer Tag. Ich griff nach der Fernbedienung, und setzen Sie den Radio auf.
Dann schaute in meine Tasche und zog meine 1012 aus, damit ich meine E-Mails überprüfen könnten.

Es gab eine E-Mail von 7Fourms
Noch nichts, noch auf der Suche ...... Anak "

I can understand that.
IMHO. Women do seem to have a better sense of fashion.

I caught a consumer report today that found that, if a man goes to buy a car he should bring his significant other along to temper his emotions while trying keep all the information about the deal organized.

By the way....I did hear some problems last year not lately with keeping the "Scotty" Icon visible. It is search-able.

Urban Dictionary: by proxy
Reasons #3, and 6, but you have to read #5
It's also a legal term.

No. No German. Some Lithuanian. Į sveikatą! (Cheers/Good Health)

I typed in to translate the descriptive paragraph (A day in the life of GretyM) where the snip/attachment is located.

Then I thought I'd better check it, so I reran it through translate, and that's what I came out in the quotes, that is why I'm laughing at the bottom.
Your right, the more you ran it the worse it would have gotten.

In all these programs, do you use pay or free?

That is all right for it to work that way, but pssstt!...If you run it in safe mode it should go faster.
