SpeedMyPC Ransonware

Recommended Posts


Posting HJT log for Win 7 64 bit machine, relatively new install. Installed AV is ESET NOD32 v5 Home Edition.

Ransomware: SpeedMYPCPerformance had completely hijacked ESET where is not visible in installed programs or in the notification area, aka, system tray.

This is a bit of a new one on me.

Did run MBAM on the client machine, it did come back clean but I am remisss in not having it handly.

Appreciate the assistance !

What's the exact name of this infection and what are the symptoms?

Not seeing anything so far.

Please do this........

Please download OTL from one of the links below:


http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.com (<---renamed version)

Save it to your desktop.

Double click on the icon on your desktop.

Click the Scan All Users checkbox.

Push the Quick Scan button.

The scan will take about 10 minutes...depends on your hard drive size.

Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here: (or attach them as .txt files)

OTL.txt <-- Will be opened

Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized

I don't have an exact name, I can tell you the following. Someone in the household installed the already described ransomeware over-top of the ESET software rendering it useless.

You could not even see ESET in add | remove programs, thus, I suspected an infection. Since this is a new PC with a new installation of W7, I don't want to risk some rogueware running around the machine unabated.

The rogue app has been fully uninstalled, as far as I can tell. I will run OTL at next opportunity, which will be this week, there will be no extended delays as there have been.

Thanks for having a look and stand by for the OTL follow-up.
