Windows 7: unknown start-up items/executables

unknown start-up items/executables

i just need to know if the following start-up items/executables are okay:
1. KbdbbnvYbaeVFmwUBrP has two command instances (1 ended with "o" the other with "e" and both located in HKCU\SOFTWARE....
2. BEMET muzik same location as above
3. Bron-Spizaetus located in HKLM\SOFTWARE...
4. CCHpix 041 and
5. CCHpix 048 and
6. Crukvm and
7. Tok-Cirrhatus-1695 and
8. Xoausuf are all located in HKCU\SOFTWARE...

please NOTE that i've disabled all of the above with no problem but no.1 item somehow managed to repeatedly enabled itself. NOTE too that i did this after running MalwareBytes free and then ASC free. MalwareBytes 1st run found and fixed more than 300 infections and 2nd run found nothing. surprisingly (to me personally) ACS 1st run and subsequent 3 or 4 runs found 2 (trojan.generic) same infections.

does this mean that no.1 startup item is related to the infection ASC kept detecting?

and of course, i did all of this on a Vista Home Premium 32-bit HP Pavilion p6617c PC that belongs to Health Inspection Unit.

greatly appreciate urgent assistance as tomorrow is Monday. God Bless,

Zeamann.

That looks like a lot of infections. The one that keeps coming back you may have to remove manually. Look on the web, there may be a procedure. Search by the name of the bugger. Else send a PM to Corrine. She may know how to deal with it.

You have to understand that a scanner or an AV program may remove a virus. But the damage the virus has made it cannot fix. Ultimately you may be best off to reinstall since I suppose you have no images. Image, image, image - then you can fix problems like that in no time.

I would clean reinstall. If the Startup reg keys are infected it will never be cleaned completely.

Besides, a clean reinstall is better than getting a new computer with today's factory bloatware larded in.

just as i thought. thanks a lots and by the way; what does PM stands for? and how do i send the PM to Corrine? Who is he/she?

i forgot to mention that this HP PC has out-dated avira anti-virus and expired-trial-period norton anti-virus. i've removed norton anti-virus this morning. if both avira and malwarebytes both run on this PC, will there be a conflict between them?

I am thinking about removing avira anti-virus too and replace it with MSE free and see if it can remove these infections completely. can you direct me to where i may get detail on how to offline-update malwarebytes on vista home premium PC?

this is my last night to deal with this PC before it goes back tomorrow into the office again with its infections. please assist asap.

thanks a lots in advance again and God Bless,

Zeamann.

Reinstalling Windows 7
if this is were my own PC i could just do what you recommended; so if there is really no way to clean this PC, then i may have to also recommend a clean re-install to the Health Inspector.

just to prepare myself, will the recovery option during post-boot do the trick or do i need to have an OS disk (cd/dvd) on-hand. it is my understanding that a clean install will mean re-formatting the hdd which will require creation of data backup first. please advise further.

thanks a lots and God Bless,

Zeamann.

Factory Recovery run from boot is another option which can overcome the infection in most cases. It would be best to have the Recovery Disks as a backup if you can still make them.

Otherwise here is the latest Official Win7 ISO download for clean reinstall: Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1 English Official ISO download
Burn to DVD or write to flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Too.

In either case you will need to back up your files externally, and I would scan them with Malwarebytes and your AV after exporting.

It may be faster to Factory Recover or Clean Reinstall depending upon how many programs need to be reinstalled. Dragging data to external and then back into User Folders after reinstall is fast and easy.

I've just PMed Corrine and am now waiting for her expert view on this. However, I am still open to discuss a clean re-install.

Thanks a bunch again guys and God Bless,
