Windows 7: Windows Activation Technologies Pop-up

I am now a victim of falling for this as well 2 days ago. I am having the same things as tjg79 with slow document loading and pop-up websites when shuting down. What is the best course of action to take to remove this as i really have no idea what to do?

We don't know how to remove it. The original poster used ESET support.

Perhaps you could check to see what is in here:

I first attempted a chat/remote desktop support with ESET tech support, but the virus was causing a severe connection problem. I was able to send log files by email so that they could analyze the problem and determine a course of action. Based on their analysis, they had me change the name of two files which seemed to stabilize my system so that they could continue with chat/remote desktop support so that they could clean the system and repair the damage. When I get to my other computer, I'll post those file names so others can give it a try. As for cleaning and damage repair, I recommend ESET. They have good support.

PS - I attempted to download the Microsoft Safety Scanner, but the virus slowed the connection speed to the point that it would have taken half a day. I used my laptop and transferred the program with a flash drive. You might try the Microsoft Safety Scanner. The virus definitions are constantly updated and they might have a solution for this virus by now.

Your other options are to attempt a restore point, reimage the system or reload the OS. The virus does cause some damage that won't go away with just cleaning the system.

Okay, I had thought about trying the Microsoft Safety Scanner but hadn't because I've done so many other scans, but will give it a try just in case. I will get in contact with ESET if the Scanner doesn't work.

I have never made a restore point or reloaded the System before, so that's something I will have to learn how to do

Your system should have been installed with System Restore on by default. If so, you should have plenty of restore points. Check to see if you have any disk space used by system restore. Or better yet, check: Control Panel/System/System Protection (left panel) (System Properties box pops up)/Protection Settings (highlight your system disk) You should have "On" under the "Protection" column. If so, this should be an easy fix. If you click on the "Configure" button, you can see System Restore Disk Space Usage.

You should check to see if you have restore points that predate your infection. If so, try a system restore.

Check the tutorial section of this forum. They should have several tutorials pertaining to System Restore.

Good Luck

PS - I posted below a few System Restore tutorial links from the Tutorial section.

An ESET Customer Care Representative has updated this
case with the following information:

Hello,

Please boot back into safe mode and rename the
following files and then reboot back into normal mode.

C:\windows\system32\nvspcap64.dll
c:\windows\system32\nvspcap64.dll
c:\windows\system32\nvapi64.dll

You can easily rename these files by
running the following commands from a command prompt window.

ren C:\windows\system32\nvspcap64.dll nvspcap64.dll.old
ren c:\windows\system32\nvspcap64.dll nvspcap64.dll.old
ren c:\windows\system32\nvapi64.dll nvapi64.dll.old

After booting back into
safe mode let me know if any of the issues are resolved.

For more information and support for ESET products, please visit the ESET Knowledgebase
at http://kb.eset.com.

Please tell us how we are doing. At the bottom of this email, you will see a

Attached is a screenshot of the pop-up that appeared after renaming the files suggested
below in SAFE Mode and then rebooting into normal mode.


I suspect that file was a valid one.

The system appears to be significantly more stable after that file renaming operation.

Perhaps the other file was the culprit.

I believe you could have a successful remote desktop at this time.

Following the instructions in the top quote above from ESET tech support, the virus appeared to be disabled on my system. My response is the bottom quote. ESET tech support was then able to use remote desktop to clean and repair my system.

This may or may not work on your system. However, renaming files doesn't clean or repair the system.

Okay, thank you. But from what I'm understanding, even if I rename these files and my computer stabilizes, I'm still going to have to contact ESET so they can clean and repair my system? Or I wonder if a system restore and maybe a disk clean would possibly clean and repair after I change those file names

Renaming the files, if it works on your system, is just a temporary fix so that the system is stable. To clean and repair, you should do a System Restore to a restore point dated prior to your infection.

You'll need to purchase an ESET Smart Security license before you'll get tech support from ESET. You can download a 30-day trial subscription from the ESET website.

ESET Home Software Downloads | ESET | ESET

I suggest you attempt a System Restore to resolve your infection first. Unless you've disabled System Restore, you should have good restore points.

Just to let ones know I did a system restore to a time prior to getting this virus and it seems to have completely fixed it. It seems to be running at its full speed again and no more ads and webpages when shutting down. Big thanks to tjg79 for suggesting to try a system restore, really didn't think I could fix this and I never would have thought of trying a system restore, so once again big thanks to tjg79
