  1. Yea, so I bought this video game on steam (Yakuza Kiwami) like on the first day it came out. I run it and there's no sound basically. So i look up a patch on google to fix it (dumbass idea), and there's one in the first link. The website itself looked very shady, but I'm thinking "whatever, the game just came out, maybe that's the only fix for now". The file itself was named even shadier.. I actually thought twice before running it, because the folder had so many unnecessary files for a simple game sound fix. But, something came over and I ran it... Turned out to be this whole mess, presumably made by Russians, cuz I had my search tool and home page changed to mail.ru. At first, i thought it was just adware, but boy was i wrong... The silly part is a couple weeks later patch notes for the game came out and literally said " Fixed an issue where the game launched with limited audio on first run." Holy f*ck did I feel stupid after that. Instead of just relaunching the game once, I got myself into this.. Oh man, hell of a ride!
  2. Finally!!!! My computer seems to be safe! Oh my, if only you knew in what silly way I got this virus!! Thank you so much for your patience with me. I appreciate all your help!!! I'm attaching a repair log as requested. Once again, I can't thank you enough! Take care and good luck!! windows repair log.txt
  3. Still cannot turn on the firewall... Maybe it just shows it like that, but it's actually turned on, as you said, because I've run a couple games and firewall message showed up to allow or not allow them through it. Fixlog.txt
  4. Perhaps this is the result of me meddling with group policy settings? I've disabled the service, but it seems that whatever group policy rules the virus set up are still active as far as firewall settings go. Windows defender real-time protection used to say the same "This setting is managed by your administrator" before you guys helped me fix it.
  5. Alright, I'm able to enable windows real-time protection, create restore points and remove paired devices. Reset this PC function also works! Created a restore point just in case. I still cannot turn on my firewall, however! Attaching screenshot and logs. Thanks!!!!!! Addition.txt FRST.txt
  6. Oh, if you want the content just pasted, here: Fix result of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (x64) Version: 28.02.2019 01 Ran by Dave (28-02-2019 17:27:32) Run:5 Running from C:\Users\Dave\Desktop\frst Loaded Profiles: Dave & (Available Profiles: Dave & Artur) Boot Mode: Normal ============================================== fixlist content: ***************** CMD: bcdedit.exe /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes CMD: bcdedit.exe /set {default} recoveryenabled yes ***************** ========= bcdedit.exe /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes ========= The operation completed successfully. ========= End of CMD: ========= ========= bcdedit.exe /set {default} recoveryenabled yes ========= The operation completed successfully. ========= End of CMD: ========= ==== End of Fixlog 17:27:32 ====
  7. By recovery environment, you mean Safe mode? I've done the steps after the "We may need to do the fix in the Recovery Environment" part.
  8. RogueKiller crashes every time after like 3 seconds after I start the scan. Maybe it reaches the cause of all this nonsense, and it doesn't let it go through.. Attaching screenshot and frst fixlog. Thanks for all your help thus far!! Fixlog.txt
  9. Tried running the log in safe mode, but the problem persists. Fixlog.txt
