I think my computer is infected, Possible rootkit?! Please help..

Recommended Posts


Every now and then when browsing the internet Malwarebytes will pop up saying "Blocked potentially malicious IP address". It's not always the same IP address it varies. I am not running Skype or any p2p programs when this happens. Also a few days ago my anti virus popped up saying something along the lines of "phew that was close, Avast just blocked you from a trojan". Then the day after It popped up saying trojan detected by the name of win32 evo gen [susp]. I then ran avasts boot scan which was recommended, but I wasn't satisfied it had cleaned my computer. I then went to run Malwarebytes Anti Rootkit. Upon opening I was presented with a window saying "registry value appinit_dlls has been found" I clicked NO and began the scan. The program didn't crash and it finished the scan with no results. I still have suspicions that my computer is infected, can someone please help me step by step to clean my computer.


Thanks in advance.

I couldn't run DDS, I tried both links. Saved both of them to my desktop and it says DDS is not mean't to run in compatibility mode. My operating system is Windows 8.1, maybe it isn't compatible with this.

OK, do this instead:

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a folder. (use correct version for your system.....Which system am I using?)

Please make sure you click download buttons that look similar to this, not "sponsored ad links":


  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.
If the logs are large, you can attach them:

To attach a log:

Bottom right corner of this page.


New window that comes up.

It looks OK and by looking at the logs...you've run all the correct programs.
IP blocks doesn't always mean you're infected.

Some info for you:

The Website/IP Blocking is a good feature of Malwarebytes, but when it does its job....people think they're infected. Sometimes this is true, but we checked the system and I don't see any malware on the system.

My protection logs have similar notifications.
I have my notifications (only) turned off, that setting is under the "Protection Tab" in Malwarebytes.

If you would like to contact Malwarebytes about the problem, here's your options:

Here's some more information on IP Blocking by Malwarebytes:

IP blocks can indicate a number of things:

  • They could indicate that MBAM is doing its job of blocking bad content on websites.
  • In some cases the blocks are a false positive.
  • However, they can also be a sign of infection, especially if the blocks are outgoing and they occur when no browsers are open.

--> There is more information about the IP blocking module in the FAQ - Section G (and in the Helpdesk topics HERE and HERE).
They include instructions on how to set MBAM to ignore a particular IP, if you wish to do so.
They also contain instructions on how to determine what process might be trying to make the connections.
You may also research the IP in question at www.ip-lookup.net or a similar site.

On the other hand, if you think the IP blocks might be a false positive, then please read this sticky topic before starting a new topic in the False Positives forum.

Alternatively, if you think you might be infected, based on the IP blocks and/or other suspicious computer behavior, then please read the following for the available options to have a malware expert assist you with cleaning process Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
