    fraud block on reputable site?

    The block is for: listrakb . com 76.74.219.134 and was Blocked for Fraud.MageCart on 2018-09-20 13:40:03 https://threatpost.com/magecart-strikes-again-siphoning-payment-info-from-newegg/137576/ The main site you're going to is walkinlab . com at 192.124.249.5 and is not blocked. The main site should be working normally aside from that one domain

Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button. If you don't have Malwarebytes 3 installed yet please download it from here and install it. Once installed then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button. Once the scan is completed click on the Export Summary button and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find, and attach that log on your next reply. If Malwarebytes won't run then please skip to the next step and let me know on your next reply. STEP 02 Please download AdwCleaner by Malwarebytes and save the file to your Desktop. Right-click on the program and select Run as Administrator to start the tool. Accept the Terms of use. Wait until the database is updated. Click Scan Now. When finished, please click Clean & Repair.

RESTART THE COMPUTER Before running Step 3 STEP 03 Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit Double-click to run it. When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer. Press the Scan button.

If you've, run the tool before you need to place a check mark here. Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well. Thanks Ron
  5. Hello @northnet and It's not necessarily a sing of an infection. You could simply have had an email open that had an Ad that linked to that site is all. mail.winhall.org Blocked for Trojan.Trickbot on 2018-09-10 11:15:02 If you like we can scan for any possible infections, just let me know. Thanks, Ron

  7. No, no more uploads @peb2 Just open Malwarebytes. It should automatically be updated, but if not then click on the link to update it. Then let me know if the block continues or not.
  8. Oh wow... have not seen that type of issue on a hard drive in quite a while. You really need to find out what's wrong. You either have a bad connection, bad hard drive, bad memory, or something like that. It's possible to be something else but is almost certainly due to some type of hardware issue. Please make sure you back up your data now, before you lose it. If it is the hard drive it could go out completely without any warning. Then run a Hard Drive diagnostics test to see what it finds. If you look in your Device Manager under Disk Drives it should show the model and possibly the manufacturer. Then if possible get the test software from the manufacturer. If the hard drive short and long test all come back good, then run a memory test on your RAM https://www.memtest86.com/technical.htm
  9. Please check and enable your System Restore and create a new System Restore Point https://www.thewindowsclub.com/system-restore-disabled-turn-on-system-restore-windows Error: (0) Failed to create a restore point. Press the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog, type powershell.exe, and press Enter. In PowerShell, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname="Application"; id="1001"}| ?{$_.providername –match "wininit"} | fl timecreated, message | out-file Desktop\CHKDSKResults.txt CHKDSKResults.txt file will be created on your desktop, that is the log file of your chkdsk scan results from Event Viewer. Please upload that file on your next reply
  10. Thanks for the update @peb2 it was still blocked as it was on a global rule. That rule was removed last night. Please update Malwarebytes and test again and let me know. Sorry for the confusion. Ron
  11. If it's still stuck there please go ahead and power off the computer and restart it. I'm heading out but will check back on you again sometime tomorrow. Cheers, Ron
  12. Please try to let it run for at least another hour. Don't want to force it to end. It could be hung, but it could be that something is wrong with the drive so don't want to force it and then the computer not boot up anymore.
  13. Is it actually repairing, or just running a disk check? Can you take a picture of it and post? I submitted a disk check which normally finishes within about 10 minutes or so for most people.
  14. Yes, I was just going to say it must be something on your system either blocking or removing. I do not use any type of "cleaners" like CCleaner, etc. and most of us don't use. That or similar programs could be the cause. I have several computers of my own as well as friends and family computers and some work computers that run it and none of them experience this issue. Many computers, and many updates, both over the top as well as clean, fresh installs and I've not run into this issue myself. Yes, we do see the issue every once in a while, but my take is that it's something in the object verb namespace of the computer causing it.
  15. Hello @lasoaj and Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop. NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work. NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system. Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait. If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart. The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please attach or post it to your next reply. Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version. fixlist.txt Thanks, Ron
