Posted 02 September 2011 - 05:16 AM

during web browsing of a live baseball feed, a fake security message popped up. I traced it to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\defender.exe. It is not allowing many programs to run. Below is Hijackthis log. I tried to attached it but was not allowed. Please help me remove defender.exe.

UPDATE: Fix checked appears to have worked. Any residuals I need to track down?

Hi Bruce,

Open Task Manager (ctrl+shift+esc), search defender.exe and then click on kill.

First of all check:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\defender.exe
O2 - BHO: IEHlprObj Class - {8CA5ED52-F3FB-4414-A105-2E3491156990} - C:\Program Files\iWin Games\iWinGamesHookIE.dll
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Security Protection] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\defender.exe

and then click on fix. Restart computer in Safe Mode. When it is starting please press f8, a black screen will be prompt, choose "Safe mode with networking", more informations about Safe Mode, you can find here.

When you are logged in, go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ and delete denfeder.exe
If a message will be prompt that you can't delete him open again Task Manager (ctrl+shift+esc), search defender.exe , click on kill and try deleting procedure again.

It is disconcerting how these fake security products use legitimate sounding names. If one was using Microsoft's Windows Defender that person might think it a legitimate detection pop-up by the software. The bad guys are pretty sneaky when it comes to this!
