  1. I don't usually need Bittorrent, but I was testing it out inside Sandboxie along with a few other applications. I know Sandboxie isn't foolproof, but I believed it gave me some sort of protection by isolating the rest of my machine from the sandboxed programs. But I see that potentially unsafe applications were also found in Autostart locations and Operating memory. Does that mean the programs were able to bypass Sandboxie? Um, if my computer has any built-in tools to check hardware, I don't know of them. Any external tools you recommend I can run? I do remember, when I got the computer formatted a few months ago, they took the hard drive out and connected it via a SATA to USB adapter to another computer, and the hard drive would fail to get detected at times. Also during formatting, they ran into issues and told me the hard drive had failed, though afterwards I gave it to the official HP service centre and they formatted it just fine. Also, there is still that firewall entry of QuickHeal issue even though I uninstalled it. I have since installed Bitdefender on my computer, but the Addition.txt logs still show QuickHeal firewall enabled. I don't understand how it's possible since I have uninstalled the program.

How do I remove QuickHeal from my computer?
  2. Here are the two logs from MBAR. I also ran a scan with ESET online scanner, and it found some potentially unsafe applications, which I believe I should not worry about as much? If no, then what can I do to make sure my computer is clean? I don't know what the problem is with my machine; the logs all come back clean, but there are so many performance issues, and today, the computer even refused to start up, getting stuck at the logo screen. I have also attached the ESET log. Any idea why my machine is behaving this way? mbar-log-2019-11-22 (00-52-41).txt system-log.txt eset2.txt
  3. Should I back up my data before running MBAR? Sorry for the late reply. The computer has been very sluggish these days, with Chrome and even Malwarebytes freezing up every now and then. It's frustrating. Is there any reason this could be happening, if the malware logs are clean?
  4. Hi again, Oh, good to hear that. I mainly have two concerns left. One is, I noticed something in the Addition.txt file, it shows Quick Heal Firewall enabled; however, I uninstalled Quick Heal ages ago and when I go to my Windows Security Center it shows that Windows Defender Firewall is on, like it should be. Is Quick Heal not totally gone from my system yet? If so, please help me uninstall it fully and turn Windows Defender Firewall on. Though my computer shows that it's already on. Why this disparity in the Addition.txt file? And secondly, for peace of my mind, I would really like to use a rootkit scanner once on the system, to double-check. The computer is still a bit sluggish, and GMER doesn't run. I have been wanting to run MBAR, but I don't know the exact process it goes, so if you could kindly assist me with it, I would finally be sure that my computer is clean. Thanks a lot for all your help.
  5. Hello, Ran into some problems while running the Fixlist. First of all, when the tool finished scanning and prompted for a restart, I just clicked the OK button and it restarted on its own. I hope that's what you meant when you said restart the system normally. After the restart, the tool did not run again, as you said it would, which makes me think I did something wrong? Secondly, my internet was gone after the restart, and I had to configure the IP settings again for it to work, and during that process, I stupidly turned the network profile from Public to Private. I have switched it back to Public now, I hope I wasn't vulnerable when the network discovery was turned Private as I have heard it's bad for network security if you are not connecting to another computer for file sharing. Third, I saw a lot of document names in the Fixlog with Removed successfully written after them; I hope it was not a document deletion process? I seem to have the files on my computer still, just wanted to confirm. I truly seemed to have botched up the fix process, but here is the Fixlog that was created. Fixlog.txt
  6. Please give me a day to post the fix log. I'll post it by tomorrow
  7. Here are the logs. Addition.txt FRST.txt MBAM.txt AdwCleaner[S00].txt
  8. Here are the Farber Scan Logs. I noticed something in the Addition.txt file, it shows Quick Heal Firewall enabled; however, I uninstalled Quick Heal ages ago and when I go to my Windows Security Center it shows that Windows Defender Firewall is on, like it should be. Is Quick Heal not totally gone from my system yet? If so, please help me uninstall it fully and turn Windows Defender on. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  9. I use Sandboxie on my machine to browse a little carelessly on the Internet. Today, all of a sudden, Sandboxie started requesting Administrator privileges on behalf of some program, even though there were no programs installed inside the sandbox. I did not grant the request and deleted the contents of the sandbox, whereupon the dialog boxes requesting Admin stopped popping up. I think this might mean that some malicious code landed inside the sandbox from the internet, and I'm not so sure that it did not infect my computer as well. I tried to run GMER, but it stops abruptly while scanning, which makes me fear that I have a rootkit which is harder to detect. Please suggest some good malware and rootkit scanners so I can ensure my computer is clean.
  10. Oh, thank you! That's so great to hear. Relieved now :) Thanks a lot for all the help
  11. It was some shady video streaming site; I clicked on it in haste by looking at the icon which resembled Youtube's icon, thinking it was a Youtube link, but as soon as the Cloudfare page loaded up, I knew I had made a mistake and exited. Here is the VirusTotal scan results of the URL. One online Web Scanner Quttera flags it as malicious. What should I do? Virustotal screenshot attached below
  12. Today, while browsing the internet on my Android, I clicked on a suspicious website by mistake. The website showed the message of "Please wait to access the website while we check your browser" and I immediately exited the page before anything else could load. I quickly ran a scan of my phone with Malwarebytes and then Bitdefender free, and also checked the URL of the website on VirusTotal. Everything came up ok in the scans, but I'm still worried. Is there any cause for alarm, since the website didn't even load, only the Cloudfare protection of the site loaded? I can provide the site link if you would be able to check it to see whether it's malicious. I hope there is no reason for alarm. appreciate the help.
  13. So Sandboxie is secure enough to use every now and then?
  14. So I was using Chrome inside Sandboxie's DefaultBox last night to browse a bit carelessly, without having to worry about malware getting on my computer. But today my antivirus alerted me that it had repaired 10 threats. Wanted to ask, how secure is Sandboxie? I know it's not foolproof, but still. Also wanted to check if my computer's clean. Malwarebytes free logs came back clean. Please find the FRST logs attached below.FRST.txt FRST.txt Addition.txt
