Hello guys,
So, today I was on my pc, I wanted to get to a file that was on my User folder:
I got into the folder and wanted to access the file named after myself (Nuno Pinto) and I could but, next to that file, there was another one named "Nuno":
I didn't remember creating it, but it was there after all, so I took a look:
I've never seen this files in my life, but for that DIE.NOW I knew it wasn't good. Because I'm really stupid, I open the .txt file to see what was inside, and it was simply written "100", don't know if I triggered a trap or something by doing that.
Next to the files there's the time they were created, I don't actually remember what I did that day and that hour, but since about that day I got some really annoying lag on my pc, so that's the problem I guess... I also go the idea of doing a system restore to before that date, but I prefer to get some opinion and help from someone who knows more than I do...
I've already followed the steps advised in this post. The Malwarebytes did nothing and I've run the dds.scr and created those two .txt files. I'll wait for a response from someone before posting them. Thanks for the help guys.

Please post the MBAR log once its ready and then uninstall ALL versions of Java as you show an older exploited version is installed.

Also, please run this before we continue on much further.


Backup the Registry:

Modifying the Registry can create unforeseen problems, so it always wise to create a backup before doing so.

  • Please download ERUNT from one of the following links: Link1 | Link2 | Link3
  • 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.
  • Double click on erunt-setup.exe to Install ERUNT by following the prompts.
  • Start ERUNT either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup process.
  • Choose a location for the backup.
    • Note: the default location is C:\Windows\ERDNT which is acceptable.
  • Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are selected.
  • Click on OK
  • Then click on YES to create the folder.

Note: if it is necessary to restore the registry, open the backup folder and start ERDNT.exe

I'm going to be away most of the night but I'll check back on you either later tonight or tomorrow.



So how is the computer running now and are there still any signs of an infection or issue related to malware?


Let me get one more new DDS scan and logs for review.


Next, download Security Check from here or here.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

The computer is definitely faster but it’s too soon to say if the freezes are fixed. Another thing I find odd is even after all this, the actual files that made me post this in the first place is still there, next to a new file named AppData.

And my anti-virus is identifying the Security Check as a UDS:DangerousObject.Multi.Generic, don't know if that's suppose to happen.
