  1. Okay, this is kind of crazy... I did create a new user profile and that did seem to fix the issues. I was going to copy over my files from the corrupt user profile but... it doesn't exist? I have no folder for this user account in the Users folder, but the two new user accounts I created are there, and I have no trouble logging into the account, obviously. Further, I double checked and the account is definitely set as a local account and not a Microsoft account. How is that even possible? I do have a folder in Users called Default.migrated but there's essentially nothing in it. I also have a
  2. Okay, I ran TFC and it cleared up 803mb but I still can't use the bottom corner of my desktop.
  3. Okay, done. Please see the logs attached. Event Viewer Log 02-24-17.txt
  4. I did follow your instructions and attempted to fix Windows Search, but the utility said it couldn't find any problems with search. I haven't noticed any sort of performance issue with search, and as far as I can tell it does function as expected. I do seem to have other issues, however, such as Malwarebytes starting with exploit protection switched off. I still have dead space at the bottom left of my desktop that I can't move icons or anything into, and I do still periodically have Windows Explorer crashes and hangs, but that could just be because Windows is a terrible, terrible product.
  5. Sorry for the delayed response, my cold medicine knocked me out last night! I followed your instructions and then ran FRST again, and these were the results. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  6. Okay done, thanks very much for all your help Ron. I notice in the logs that my default search in Chrome is changed and there are a lot of fake extensions in Opera and Chrome. Neither the extensions nor the new fake default search page are actually showing in either browser. Sophos scanned clean. Addition - 2-21-17.txt FRST - 2-21-17.txt JRT - 2-21-17.txt
  7. Thanks so much for your response, Ron. I did run FRST again as instructed, please see the txt file below. Fixlog.txt
  8. I am pretty positive I have a rootkit. It's a quiet and crafty sort; from the beginning there were no obvious signs of infection, there wasn't any slowing or memory leaking, no unusual traffic noted. I felt like something was off, but I couldn't pinpoint what until I got the first warning message from MBAM 3.0.6 Premium (see Exploit Blocking below). Now I notice that all my desktop icons are rearranged on relog and suddenly there is a bit of dead space at the bottom where I can no longer move any icons, though that's kind of the least of my worries. Sometimes the screen sort of freezes, almost
  9. Thanks very much for the feedback, MBMemes. I did try running Chameleon from Safe Mode, as you suggested. I didn't save 13 logfiles, but I did copy one. Suffice it to say they all failed identically. I will make a note to check out uBlock also. I probably should have mentioned in my initial post that I'm running Windows 10 x64. My default browser right now is Chrome, but I also use Opera, Firefox and Tor. If there are any other ideas I'm all ears!
  10. Okay, I think this is probably my first post on the forums, so I apologize for being a noob and doing whatever annoying things noobs do before they get a clue. That said, I am pretty positive I have a rootkit. It's a quiet and crafty sort; from the beginning there were no obvious signs of infection, there wasn't any slowing or memory leaking, no unusual traffic noted. I felt like something was off, but I couldn't pinpoint what until I got the first warning message from MBAM (see Exploit Blocking below).

  11. I don't think the disabling of Malwarebytes was accidental... I had trouble a couple weeks ago installing the anniversary update so I tried again today, and this was successful, but I noticed that Malwarbytes Anti-Malware (but not Anti-Exploit) was disabled upon first load of the anniversary update. Further, I found that Windows Defender had set itself running and as default and really did not want to go back down. I still don't see any listing for MB-AM in the startup apps, though it did apparently launch okay on this restart. *grumbles to herself in an insane fashion about M$ sucking audibly
