Windows 7: External Hard Drive error ~$WV.FAT32

Thanks to the mods/admins for merging the two threads. Good job.

In the screenshot @ posts #21 and 25 ( both same), the OP is seen running the LLF Tool on a Seagate Portable SF04 500.1 GB external drive. He had also mentioned Seagate in one of the posts.

The external drive in the last RKreport shows Toshiba External USB 3.0 USB device, perhaps 1TB.

OP needs to clarify this.

Yeah, here it is. External Hard Drive error ~$WV.FAT32-capture4.jpg

That Toshiba was my other ext.Hd, guess that i did plug the wrong HD when i did the scan, sorry!

Uhm, yeah I guess so. But all of my backup files are in there, which I can't afford any memory to place all of the files in that Hd in case that i need to format it too.

Here's the Shortcut fix report, RKreport[2]_SC_03192013_02d2106.txt

Another clarification Flippylumpy.

Is the screenshot above that of the Seagate external drive before you ran the shortcut fix or after you ran the shortcut fix? We do miss the RK report with the Seagate external drive plugged in. I would have loved to see how MBR was reported there.

In other words, were you able to see the drive in DiskManagement even before running the shortcut fix?

Now let us wait for cottonball.

@Jumanji

It is already there before i ran the shortcut fix. Maybe I just did not notice that part of the disk management before cause I always just look at the Volume list part.

The Shortcuts should be gone by now.

Disk Management shows Unallocated space in Disk 1 of about +/- 465GB

The External drive in question, at one point named Letrang (Tagalog: Letter) H:, with a size of +/- 465GB happens to be the same size!

If this drive was LLF, and there is no Partition, I don't think it will be showing in a RogueKiller report, or any other malware tool which identifies partitions as infected, etc. Someone please correct me if I am wrong!!

Hum now my two cents worth I keep seeing that Yontoo mentioned in those reports - it is a well I had better keep my language agreeable - APITA and a pig to get rid of, and one that downloads to the unwary with other apps.

I don't know what anyone else thinks?

Personally I had to dig into the registry to get rid of it but that is my experience of it.

@ICit2lol,

In Post #2, you suggested AdwCleaner, and it does dig into the Registry.

Also, RogueKiller was run later on.

Between those two proggies, the pita was toasted, and it didn't even get any olive oil!!

Yes mate but I don't remember having seen that it had been run. The rotten thing is a type of control where you go app and personally I found it such a hindrance, and very unnecessary.
So it had me wanting to get rid of real quick only to find it is a stubborn rat and doing it from the reg myself was the only answer.
