UKASH Virus .....again :(

Hi there

I have the dreaded Ukash virus again, exactly as per last time and last time I was kindly helped in this thread:
Ukash virus simply won't go away - help pleeeaase

Can you advise what I need to do to remove it as I guess the script in the previous thread is no longer current?

Thanks so much in advance

Let's use HitmanPro.Kickstart to access your computer, scan it for malware, and remove this infection. The program targets this ransomware.

Also, you may want to print these instructions, so they are available to follow.

Now, load a USB flash drive with HitmanPro.Kickstart as follows...
Note: the contents of the USB flash drive are erased during this process!

Use a clean (non-infected) computer, and download:
HitmanPro.Kickstart - Anti ransomware, politievirus, bundestrojaner, Reveton, BKA, GVU - SurfRight

Under Download (on the right) select the program applicable to the system: 64-bit

When HitmanPro opens, click the KickStart icon at the bottom of the screen.

>>Plug in the USB flash drive.

When the USB flash drive is detected, a selection screen is presented.
Select the USB flash drive from the choices, and press: Install Kickstart
A warning that all contents of the selected flash drive will erase is presented.
Press: Yes

As the HitmanPro.Kickstart files are loaded, a progress indicator is shown on the screen.
Once the process is completed a screen is presented with the contents of HitmanPro.Kickstart

Remove the USB flash drive from the clean computer and press: Close

Now, with the ransomed computer shut down, plug the USB flash drive into a USB port, and turn on the power.

When the computer starts, press the key that brings up the Boot Menu. (On some machines its F12, F10, or F2)
From there, select to boot from the USB drive. (It may say 'Removable Drive' in the options.)
Info: How to Remove Ransomware - Select Real Security

Once you select the USB flash drive to boot from, press: Enter

A Kickstart prompt with USB boot options appears.
Select: 1 (Bypass the Master Boot Record (Default))

The system continues to boot from the hard drive and starts Windows.
If you get a message stating that Windows failed to start, etc., just select: Start Windows Normally

When Windows boots, you either get a logon screen, or the Desktop is started.
If you see a logon screen with your User name, logon with it.

In the next prompt that appears, to start the program without installing to the local hard disk, select the option to do a one-time scan to check the computer.

To start scanning for malware press: Next

If malware is detected, the program shows what malware is present on the system using a red framed screen.

Select Next to quarantine the malware into a secure storage where it can no longer start.

At the next screen, activate the 30-day free license.

After successful activation (30 days), press: Next

A screen indicating that the malware was successfully disabled or removed is presented.
Press: Next

To obtain a report of the scan results, press: Save log
>>Save the Notepad log to the Desktop<<
It has a name such as: HitmanPro_xxxxxxxx_xxxx

Remove the USB drive, and press: Reboot
If no malware is found, press: Close

After HitmanPro.Kickstart is done, you should be back into normal Windows.

Please post the HitmanPro log in your reply.

To remove any remnant malicious files of the ransomware...

For quicker alternative, check if you can boot to safe mode with networking. Some versions of ukash virus will allow just that, and it is enough to run the scan or stop it from launching on normal reboot.

The entries showing on RogueKiller are of no consequence.

Let's take an additional never know what else comes along with ransomware.

Please download Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit

Save to the Desktop (easy to find)

Right-click the file and select: Extract here... (to the Desktop)

Run the program and follow ithe Usage Instructions on the website from Step 3 to Step 6.
For now, please stop at Step 6.

When the program is done, two reports are created in the mbar folder:
1. system-log.txt
2. mbar-log-2013-02-18 (20-13-32).txt (corresponds to mbar-log-year-month-day (hour-minute-second).txt)

Please provide the mbar-log containing information on what was detected and removed.
