    Default Avast Error 10050 / Trojan Horse/ No Web Access/ No Firewall/No Auto-Updates

    PC INFO:
    Dell E510
    WIN XP
    Media Center Edition
    Version 2002 SP3
    Pentium 4 CPU 3.00 GHz
    2.99 GHz, 2.00 GB RAM

    Problems: Avast Error 10050 - unprotected; No Firewall Turned on - won't work; No Internet Acess; No Auto-Updates

    Possible Cause:
    While my kid was playing "Alice - Madness Returns" the game kept minimizing itself and going to the desktop where Google Talk was possibly trying to open. She was able to only "close" the Google program but did not "exit" the program. She stopped the game and we did SuperAntiSpyware which found a Trojan Horse. I assumed it was removed or quarrantined but problems persisted. SASpyware did find other threats but I didn't notate what they were not knowing there were bigger problems.

    At this point I don't know if Avast had stopped working because it usually blocks Trojans on the rare instances I have seen. I didn't know there were bigger problems till SASpyware had me reboot. Then the Avast message came up saying "Avast will not be bale to protect mail/news (error 10050). Check that Avast is not blocked by firewall."

    This is when I saw the red shield at the bottom of the screen saying the firewall was not on. (Which actually has been the norm at start-up for a long time but it goes on once the pc boots up - until today.) I tried to correct the firewall problem but got a message that said "Windows Firewall cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the ICS?" - clicking Yes got me to: "Windows cannot start the ICS."

    I did read up on the internet ( my pc ) about this 10050 error ***but don't know where to begin when I can't connect the E510 to the internet.***

    Trying to "fix" in Avast made nothing happen or "start program" made nothing happen as well. I have had Avast on silent gaming mode and that is off now too.

    I removed Google Talk from add/remove programs.

    Let me know - if you can - if this "Alice Madness Returns" game is a culprit...I'm going to have to break it to the kid somehow. (I hate pc games!!)

    I did manage a HijackThis Log:

    Hello and welcome to Help2Go

    We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Help2Go we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up.

No one is ignored here.

    Please take note:

    1. If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know.
    2. If you are unable to create a log because your computer cannot start up successfully please provide detailed information about your installed Windows Operating System including the Version, Edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
      • If you are unsure about any of these characteristics just post what you can and we will guide you.
    3. Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available.
    4. If you are unable to perform the steps we have recommended please try one more time and if unsuccessful alert us of such and we will design an alternate means of obtaining the necessary information.
    5. If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.
    6. Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review your topic an do their best to resolve your issues.
    7. If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
    8. Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


    We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan again:

    • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
    • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.

    No problem on delay.
    I have done all I can and was just able to get the malwarebytes log last night so I wasn't expecting anything sooner.
    I can't perform your additional steps because the pc having the problem cannot connect to the internet.
    I have already posted all I the spec info at the top of my first post.

    Hello,

    The problem is that malwarebytes or Superantispware probably deleted or quarantined a file or registry item that was crucial to internet connection. With these new infection especially ZeroAccess rootkit it targets internet files that are need to connect and infects them. Then your Antivirus or other malware programs delete or quarantine them thus no internet.

    Do you have access to another working computer and a flash drive to transfer stuff back and forth?
    3 things you can run to see if they help any at all to get your internet back are.

    1.
    • Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Network and Internet Connection ->Network Connections.
    • Right-click your default connection, usually Local Area Connection or Dial-up Connection (if you are using dial-up), and left-click on the Properties option.
    • Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the radio button that says "Obtain DNS servers automatically".
    • Click OK twice.
      spacer.gif
    • Go to Start -> Run...
    • In the Open: field type cmd and click OK or hit Enter.
      This will open a Command Prompt.
    • At the DOS prompt screen, type in ipconfig /flushdns and then press Enter (notice the space between "ipconfig" and "/flushdns").
    • Exit the Command Prompt.
    • Reboot your PC and try to open any website.




    • Enter.
    • Go to Start -> Run...
    • In the Open: field type cmd and click OK or hit Enter.
      This will open a Command Prompt.
    • At the DOS prompt screen, type in netsh winsock reset and then press Enter (notice the space between each word)
    • Exit the Command Prompt.
    • Reboot your PC and try to open any website.


    2.
    We need to check your hard disk for errors.

    To check the volume for errors:
    • Click start and then My Computer.
    • Right click the drive C and select Properties.
    • Under Tools tab press Check Now...
    • Put a check mark in both items and press start.
    • If you get a message click Yes to schedule the disk check and click OK and then restart your computer to start the disk check. Please be patient and let the system run. In some cases it might take a couple of hours and you don't have to sit there the whole time.

    *NOTE: This scan could take along time to complete, but let it finish.


    3.
    • Go to Start -> Run...
    • Type in sfc /scannow in the command window and press enter.
    • Note the space between the c and the /
    • If any files require replacing SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Windows Xp disc for this process to continue. This can be done with a borrowed Xp disc if you don't have one.
    • Be patient because the scan may take some time.
    • Allow the scan to run and when completed, reboot the system.

    • Close/disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. Refer to this page if you are not sure how.
    • Close any open windows, including this one.
    • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
    • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.

    • If you did not have it installed, you will see the prompt below. Choose YES.
