  3. Hello NickWindows7 and welcome to Malwarebytes, Continue with the following: Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop or location where you ran FRST from. 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 that cannot be undone. 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) or wherever you ran FRST from. 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 Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version. NOTE-1: This fix will run a scan to check that all Microsoft operating system files are valid and not corrupt and attempt to correct any invalid files. It will also run a disk check on the restart to ensure disk integrity. Depending on the speed of your computer this fix may take 30 minutes or more. NOTE-2: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed. The following directories are emptied: Windows Temp Users Temp folders Edge, IE, FF, Chrome and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History Recently opened files cache Flash Player cache Java cache Steam HTML cache Explorer thumbnail and icon cache BITS transfer queue (qmgr*.dat files) Recycle Bin Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix. The system will be rebooted after the fix has run. Next, Download Sophos Free Virus Removal Tool and save it to your desktop. If your security alerts to this scan either accept the alert or turn off your security to allow Sophos to run and complete..... Please Do Not use your PC whilst the scan is in progress.... This scan is very thorough so may take several hours... Double click the icon and select Run Click Next Select I accept the terms in this license agreement, then click Next twice Click Install Click Finish to launch the program Once the virus database has been updated click Start Scanning If any threats are found click Details, then View log file...

  17. Hiya crack4, The logs from FRST do not show any malware or infection, the "Attention" alerts in Group Policy and Firefox are related to your security "Kaspersky" so no further action is needed. Hopefully one of the two staff guys i highlighted in my initial reply will respond soon and comment on the alert from within the Windows.old folder. Have a read at the following link regarding that folder to understand why its there, is it worth keeping and it potential uses etc.. https://www.howtogeek.com/130558/how-to-restore-your-files-from-the-windows.old-folder-after-upgrading/ Thank you, Kevin
  18. Hello crack4 and welcome to Malwarebytes, That file is a Windows file that normally runs from the system32 folder, it also runs in the syswow64 folder. Obviously they also show in Windows.old folder after a major system update. I`m not really sure that file identified on your system is malicious. Maybe @Atribune or @shadowwar will comment on this alert.. Run the following diagnostic scan to check your system: Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Please copy and paste it to your reply. The tool will also make a log named (Addition.txt) Please attach that log to your reply. Thank you, Kevin..
