  1. I notice no more symptoms. Thank you very much! I am not sure if RocketTab was really responsible for these problems, but it seems so.
  2. OK, I think I got that one solved, apparently it was an error with Malwarebytes not recognizing the database update. It tried to update a few more times and then it worked. I ran a scan as you described, and no malware was found, however it found three potentially unwanted files. I've attached the log, however it's empty. The names of the files are: PUP.Optional.Spigot.A, C:\Users\Philip\AppData\Local\Temp\~sp53DC.tmp PUP.Optional.Spigot.A, C:\Users\Philip\AppData\Local\Temp\~sp65D6.tmp PUP.Optional.Spigot.A, C:\Users\Philip\AppData\Local\Temp\nsy678A.tmp\SP.dll mwb log.txt
  3. I followed your instructions and everything worked up to the Scan, which stopped with the error SDKDatabaseLoadDefaults failed with code: 20012
  4. I notice no more symptoms, however I can still not install Malwarebytes (Error: The source file is corrupted).
  5. I did it now. Here is the new log. Rocket tab seems to be gone Should I do more scans? AdwCleanerS0.txt
  6. I ran all the scans with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit, TDSSKiller, and AdwCleaner. Interestingly, TDSSKiller can now be run in regular Windows except only in safe mode, as previously. All three scans returned no results. I attached the logs. mbar-log-2014-11-19 (19-50-32).txt system-log.txt TDSSKiller. AdwCleanerR0.txt
  7. Download was sucessful as far as I can tell, anyway I downloaded it again just to be sure, with the same result. Antivirus is disabled. I now downloaded it on another computer now, and it runs successfully on that computer. I will try to copy and then run it on the infected computer later today if you approve.
  8. Hello TwinHeadedEagle, thank you for your help! I downloaded and started Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit as instructed, however the unpacking was interrupted with the message 7-Zip: Data error. The archive is corrupted. This also happened after downloading the file again and when trying to run it in Windows safe mode. I also ran Farbar Recovery Scan Tool as administrator, the logs are attached. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  9. Hello, I believe that my computer is infected with a root kit. The first thing I noticed was that my firefox search extensions were rearranged and that a program called RocketTab was installed on my computer. I never conciously installed that program. Any attempts at uninstalling or deleting that program were unsuccessful so far, it always returns after reboot. This program is apparently located in the folder C:\Program Files\Search Extensions. First this folder contained only an uninstall.exe file. This is what virustotal says about that file: https://www.virustotal.com/file/6ccc20982c90c78e6
