The Windows Security Center Can't be Started. Help!

Hi,

I've recently had a virus on my laptop, AVG detected a few called trojan horse generic29.ajge
I think i've managed to remove them through various types of malware programs and such but it has left me unable to activate the Windows Security Center and also my Windows Firewall isn't using its recommended settings.

I know you computer experts usually require more information than that, so just let me know what you need.

Many thanks,

P.S i also had the blue screen of death today which has worried me!

Trojanhorse Generic29.AJGE is also known as Sirefef, ZeroAccess, Rootkit.0access or Trojan.0access rootkit.

My best advice is to 'wipe' and do a 'clean' install.

I've looked at a few forums already about such issues. I ran RogueKiller earlier with the following response:

@Twy86, what did you do to "solve" this ZA Rootkit?

Twy86,

Removing malware like ZeroAccess and getting a computer back in working order is my reason for doing this kind of work, although there are different opinions about its removal. Some of us belong to the Wipe and Clean Club, and some of us belong to the Good Riddance Club.


In any event, using RogueKiller to remove ZeroAccess, and stopping there is a huge mistake.

If you wish to pursue the issue to completion, please follow VistaKing's instructions (Post #6) to run TDSSKiller, and provide the TDSSKiller report.

Also, do the following:

Please go to the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Download
Select the 64-bit version.
Save it to your Desktop.
Double-click the downloaded file to run it.

When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
Press the Scan button.

FRST64 makes a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory from which the tool is run (Desktop).

Please provide the FRST.txt in your reply. <<---

The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log: Addition.txt
Also post the: Addition.txt in your reply. <<---



Next, download Farbar Service Scanner

Save to the Desktop
  • Make sure the following options are checked:
    • Internet Services
    • Windows Firewall
    • System Restore
    • Security Center
    • Windows Update
    • Windows Defender
  • Press: Scan
  • FSS creates a log, FSS.txt, on the Desktop.
Please provide the FSS.txt in your reply.
