ares warez removal

Postby kaiser4902 » Sat Sep 06, 2008 3:15 am


I am trying to remove a box that come up whenever I restart my computer. I tried to install ares, and I seem to have warez. I have tried all that i know to remove it but i still seem to have it. (reg mechanic, XoftSpy)

The bow has a distinctive blue header with white and yellow chinese writing and many questions marks including CPU50% MEEE??2.0.

I would greatly appreciate any help

To start with, the best way would be to try to identify what the process is that is running at startup.

Go to Start > Run and type in msconfig. Click Ok, go to the Startup tab and try to identify it in there. If you're not sure which it is, try unselecting items then reboot. Repeat until you find which one it is.

If you find it and are unsure how to remove it permanently, post back with the details.

Alternatively, run Hijackthis and post a log here.

Open the RUN box and type in MSCONFIG to see what is loaded at startup. If you don't see it there open Taskmanager and check the processes, if you know what normally loads. If you see a process running you don't recognize go to administrative tools/services and stop the process then disable it.

Dangerous if you don't know what is being loaded.
If that doesn't work, open regedit (RUN box and type in REGEDIT) hkey current user/software/Microsoft/windows/current version/ run (and run once) see what is loading. backup your registry and delete the entry IF you identified it correctly.
Or download HIJAACTHIS and run it. Identify what is being loaded and delete any unwanted entries. Or save the log and post it to one of many Hijaacthis forums.

hi.. No I don't think it is. I think that belongs to Ringz Studio. A music player, Stormser.

Does anyone have any further ideas.

malware byte seems not too have found anything. I scanned using Mcafee 8.5i again and it has deleted a few trojan files linked to storm codecs... So hopefully that's it.

Thanks very much
