I see you have ComboFix on the computer, it doesn't run on W8!

Download the attached fixlist.txt to the same folder as FRST.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait

The tool will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

Hi MrC!

I didn't know ComboFix didn't run on W8. I installed it because I saw another topic where it was advised (that was of course before I started this topic).

I've run the FRST tool and it came up with the attached log file.

It says it requires a manual reboot, so I will do that now.

I tried to stop the coin-miner process (2x: shell.exe and macromedia.exe), this window came up:

Will reboot now..
