Hello RikardBoEriksson.

Please do NOT attach reports. Always Copy & Paste the contents inside the main-body of reply box. :excl:

Step 1

1. Go >> Here << and download ERUNT

(ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.)

2. Install ERUNT by following the prompts

(use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)

3. Start ERUNT by doing a Right-Click on it & select Run As Admisnistrator

4. Choose a location for the backup

(the default location is C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT which is acceptable).

5. Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are ticked

6. Press OK

7. Press YES to create the folder.

Step 2

Show all files:

  • Click the Start button, and then click Computer.
  • On the Organize menu, click Folder and Search Options.
  • Click the View tab.
  • Locate and uncheck Hide file extensions for known file types.
  • Locate and uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).
  • Locate and click Show hidden files and folders.
  • Click Apply > OK.

Step 3

Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools

For directions on how, see How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Do NOT turn off the firewall

  1. Close any/all open internet browsers. Save any open documents you have open & close programs you started.
  2. Also close any instant messenger program.
  3. Click on START>All Programs>Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware>Tools>Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Chameleon
    On Windows 7, press Windows-key, then start typing in text box
Malwarebytes[code] then select/click [b]Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Chameleon[/b]
Once the Help file opens, click on a [b]Chameleon[/b] button (starting with #1)
If running on Vista, Windows 7, press the Yes button when prompted at the UAC prompt to allow to run.
You should see a black Command-prompt-window that remains open and says [b]MBAM-chameleon ver. 1.6[/b] at the top
Press any key to continue as it says in the window {space-bar will do}
If the Chameleon button you tried does not work, try the next Chameleon button shown. (There are 12 in all).
Have infinite patience during this process
Malwarebytes Chameleon will proceed to update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, so ensure that you are connected to the internet if possible
Once the update completes and it says your database is updated, click on [b]OK[/b] button so that process can continue :excl:
Malwarebytes Chameleon will then terminate any threats running in memory, which may take a while, so please be patient.
After that, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware will open automatically and perform a Quick scan
A quick scan will take a few minutes, possibly 5 or so minutes. Have infinite patience.
Once the scan is complete, click on [b]Show Results[/b] and remove any threats that are found by clicking [b]Remove Selected[/b]
If prompted to restart your computer to complete the removal process, click [b]Yes[/b] :excl:
If no threats are found, press OK button & press EXIT to end MBAM. Press the space-bar (or another key) to exit the command-prompt-window.
After your computer restarts, open [b]Malwarebytes Anti-Malware[/b] and perform one last Quick scan to verify that there are no remaining threats

Reply with copy of the MBAM scan log for review.

Hello Maurice!

Thank you for your help and that you spend your time on us. I have already left my parents so I need to guide them through the process by phone when I am back in one weeks time. So right now I don´t know if it is working or not. Hope it will. I will let you know if it will solve their problem.

Kind regards
