  1. I have a Z87-g45 gaming motherboard and I can't get it to boot to usb. My computer completely crashed after I ran hitman and malewarbytes. I ran both scans and each told me a restart was needed so I waited for both to finish since they both required a restart. Prob was not good idea since now my computer won't boot at all. Once I was prompted of a failed startup I chose to restart from last known good configuration. It just got hung on the starting Windows screen for over 3 hours. So I tried changing the bios to ufei instead of legacy+ufei and tried to see if that helped. It didn't. I've tried restoring bios to defaults to see if it helped it did not. Stuck on loading Windows screen. I took the battery out of the mother board and left it out for 5 mins and tried to start it. Same thing stuck on loading Windows. After trying to load to safe mode with network and without network and trying to load to command prompt and it all still getting stuck I decided to go purchase a new computer to try to get some recovery software to try to fix the problem. So my first choice of programs to try is Hiren. I downloaded Hiren and it was an iso file. So I formatted my usb thumbnail to Fat32 and used PowerISO to burn the Hiren ISO to the usb. (Using the create bootable usb option) after it was finished burning to the usb. I removed it from computer and put it into broken PC. Booted PC up and push F10 till I got to the bios. Changed boot priority to #1 uefi usb #2 usb. Saved changes and restarted. Went to stuck loading Windows screen. Power off, power on F10 changed bios from uefi+legacy to just uefi and booted usb first priority. Saved and rebooted. Went to stuck loading Windows screen. Figured I'd just try to see if command promp would work. Power off, power on F10 changed to default bios settings saved and restarted. Windows failed to load restart with command promp. Stuck on Windows loading screen but it finally worked and I was in command promp. Trying several commands to figure out what drive the usb was and looking on Google trying to find list of commands to use with command prompt. The computer automatically just restarted and I didn't even execute any command. Now unsure I can get to command prompt again. Tried rebooting again and again about 4 or 5 times and get stuck on Windows loading screen and no option of boot to command prompt. I can get to efi shell easily but don't think that's gonna help me with what I need. I honestly don't know what I should run off of hirens even if I do get it to run. I'll use to research Google as I go. My biggest problem is trying to get the usb to load then if someone would like to walk me to diagnose the problem id be forever grateful! Please help me. I've repaired computers that have crashed before but this is first time this computer with this motherboard has crashed and I just can't get it to do right and it's been killing many days just watching a stuck screen. Please! TY in advance!
  2. I have a suspicious file named gbhvexig.exe that keeps coming back after a restart or two. I suspect it to be causing multiple instances of iexplore.exe (reaches up to 4 instances when my normal number of instances is only 2) upon startup and these instances are detected as malicious ads. I also think it is responsible for breaking the .dll files of two games in my PC. Another concern is, all USB sticks I insert in my PC gets infected with the RECYCLER folder and "shortcut virus". I have ran several scans already using Malwarebytes but still my USBs are getting infected. I have attempted to run some scans using FRST and ADWCleaner as I have seen in other threads with similar problems as mine but I always seem to get lost in the way. Please do help me because I have grown tired of reinstalling my affected programs again and again.
  3. Hello, Im new to this forum and I would be extremely grateful if anyone here could give me some advice on how to remove encrypted syswow64, (possibly zero access rootkit), from several usbs that I got that have been infected when they where inserted in windows computers that I got that were attacked by hackers. The hackers installed a system administration server on my network and attacked my computers with some kind of synzcronization worm/virus that synced and even infected offline devices, (that contained Bluetooth and smartcard etc), like Television, digital TV box, dvd, printer and phones. Programs that I detected on my computers that they were using were among others, syswow64, bluetoothshare, various installation hooks, svchost, microsoft synchronization feeds, keyloggers, infrared, remote Control programs, malicious code and code changer programs etc. When I scan the usbs with regular virus Scans like Kaspersky or Norton they all comes out Clean and no names shows up during the scan but when I scan the usbs with microsoft forefront scanner it also comes out as Clean but during the scan all the rootkit names show up though. The names that comes up includes for example syswow64, catroot, system root: nearby devices, hkmmodule installation hook, netframework installation hook, microsoft feeds synchronization, subsystem spooler system, mobilesynch.exe, tablet/pcsynch.exe, rundll.32.exe and many more. I have run the scan on all photos separately that is stored on the usbs and the same rootkit names shows up during the scan on every single photo and also, when I did a test and removed all files from one usb, so that it was empty, all the names still showed up when I scanned it and I could also see that the rootkit, (although I cant see it as it is encrypted), took up 0,8 gb of space on the usb since there was only 7,2 gb left for me to use although the size of the usb is 8 gb so if the usb were really empty there should be 8 gb space left for me to use, not 7.2 gb. What I would like to know is if anyone here knows if theese types of encrypted rootkits is possible to remove at all fro usbs so that I can get my photos, and if so how? Is there any antivirus website where I can upload the photos that can Clean the rootkit completely out of the usb and photos or should I go visit some computer specialist store instead, or is it enough if I just burn the photos over to a dvd and then the rootkit will dissapear byitself, or is there nothing that can be done at all? Anyone that knows the answer to theese questions please feel free to send me messages either in this thread or you can send me private messages to my profile here on this forum aswell if you like. All answers are extremely appreciated
  4. I made a really big mistake the other day installing something onto my machine that had not been properly checked for malware and viruses. It turned out that it had some really nasty virus and also installed something called the YeaHelpdesk onto my machine which has run riot through my system. I have read online that Malwarebytes can get rid of it but sadly, one of the effects of the virus was to take away my administrative rights to my own PC and is able to prevent me installing Malwarebytes on my system, saying that I do not have permission to. I want to know if it is possible to install Malwarebytes onto a datastick from my laptop and then be able to plug that into my PC and be able to run it from off the stick. Anyone?
  5. I have a Win 10 setup with the in-built Defender, and the free version of Avast AV - but I still manage to find the occasional PUP when I run Adwcleaner (preferably in Safe Mode) Question:- is it possible to set Adwcleaner to scan a USB memory stick for PUPs - or does it do that by default? Many thanks! richard
  6. Just upgraded to paid version yesterday. Now I find that I cannot see various files on my Nexus 5 Android phone when I connect via USB. This is how I transfer and manage music files and such and it has always worked perfectly in the past. It might be a coincidence but it seems just too suspicious to be such. Oh, and the files are actually there if I look at the phone's contents through its file manager -- they just don't show up anymore when I'm looking with File Explorer on W10-64.
  7. Ok. so i think i'm in trouble. i ran through these steps https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/646byi/keep_your_pc_healthy_adwaremalwarejunkware/. Everything went well and i restarted my computer, once i'm at the home screen both my mouse and keyboard are not working. I looked around for some soultions but nothing seems to be working. None of my USB ports are working. I've reset CMOS but i get nothing. I tested a spare mouse on all these USB ports and i get power but that's it so i don't think it's a hardware problem. I also tested my main keyboard and mouse on a laptop and they work fine. Doing all this i ran into a big problem. The pins for My USB 3.0 front header port on my motherboard are snapped off. Thing is, everything was working fine before i ran this program and im not sure what to do now. Sorry for the story, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
