  1. Shadow, I was indeed not on an administrator account, thanks for the heads up on that. I'm running the scan again now, hopefully everything goes well. Even so, I guess I still am having computer problems but I suppose a new PC is always an option.
  2. I've experienced the same problem, specifically with Windows opening programs very, very slowly. The first Malwarebytes scan quarantined and removed DFDWiz.exe while every scan since then has been bringing up the other file mentioned (the windows diagnostic user resolver). It's been quarantined and removed several times, but still comes back up, which I now know to just be a problem with Malwarebytes current version. However, the "Check for Updates" option is grayed out so I must be fully updated. The database version is v2012.05.17.06 and another user posted that there's was 05.18.01 so I'm guessing I'm just missing something here.
  3. I'm fully updated but the problem still persists. The topic you linked did mention DFDWiz.exe, which was the first file quarantined and removed by Malwarebytes. I'm just wondering where this leaves me, because my computer is still running the same as it has been so there must be a problem. It essentially makes every running program and a few services take up much more CPU than needed - any ideas on what I might be experiencing? Nothing else has shown up on the scans.
  4. Well, my laptop has been running slow for awhile now, and while I figured it was a virus, Microsoft Security Essentials didn't seem to find anything. Finally, I just wiped everything clean, formatted the drives and re-installed my OS. About a week went by and the problem crept up again so needless to say I was pretty upset. A friend recommended Malwarebytes so I figured I'd try it before I went out and bought a new PC, just in case I could salvage this one (it still runs games pretty well). I ran the full scan and it turns out that I'm infected with a Trojan, specifically FakeAlert, which would account for the lack of performance from my computer. I looked into it a bit and it's apparently supposed to try and scam you with redirects and such but I've experienced no such thing, even before the hard-drive wipe and re-installation (I did not back up and restore my files by the way, Steam is wonderful about switching PCs). Anyway, after the scan I chose to restart the computer and delete the quarantined file. For safe measure, I figured I would scan the system again to make sure there wasn't anything else going on. Unfortunately, I have now performed the full scan four times and I end up with the same results every time, with the same exact infected file. I will post the most recent log below, hopefully it's correct. The main problem for me is the fact that this computer is acting up so terribly, it's impossible to run any slightly intensive program and even videos on Youtube are laggy. Any help would be very, very appreciated.
