  7. Hello again Aellion, The infection was some kind off hijacker that makes outbound calls from your PC to its website, Malwarebytes did its job and blocked those calls. We successfully removed the infection with FRST. I`m not 100% sure where the infection came from but be aware P2P programs and applications are are known prime conduit for such infections. To clean up: Right click on FRST here: C:\Users\Lordgoofox\Desktop\FRST64.exe and rename uninstall.exe when complete right click on uninstall.exe and select "Run as Administrator" If you do not see the .exe appended that is because file extensions are hidden, in that case just rename FRST64 to uninstall That action will remove FRST and all created files and folders...
