Need help removing malware/First time using this website! (have logs)

Recommended Posts

Hello anyone who is willing to take time out of their busy lives to assist me,


I have recently encountered a nuisance. I was trying to download WinRAR software and I definitely downloaded it from the WRONG place, seeing as how it came with a few extra things in a package that I stupidly overlooked. One of them was this annoying "Rocket" search/tool bar that opened up its own search engine when clicking to open a new tab on Mozilla. Snooping around on this website, I have found a nice program "adwcleaner" that was provided through a link from a known supporter. This program was able to suprisingly fix my internet issue within minutes, amazing. For some reason when I see programs such as "adwcleaner", I always just assume they are some scandal only to secretely infest your computer with what you were hoping to get rid of. Anyways, I was wondering if one someone could please take a look at my registry files and results from programs that were recommended on these forums to make sure I have gotten rid of any suspicious or possible threats. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.                 -Anthony


I have provided 4 attachments. FRST/Addition log, Adwcleaner[s0] log, and a TDSSKiller log. Thanks again. :)

You should uninstall this:

Mozilla Firefox Packages (HKCU\...\Mozilla Firefox Packages) (Version: - ) <==== ATTENTION


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

Run FRST.exe and click Fix only once and wait

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


Clean out temp files:

Download TFC from here and save it to your desktop.



Close any open programs and Internet browsers.

Double click TFC.exe to run it on XP (for Vista and Windows 7 right click and choose "Run as administrator") and once it opens click on the Start button on the lower left of the program to allow it to begin cleaning.

Please be patient as clearing out temp files may take a while.

Once it completes you may be prompted to restart your computer, please do so.

Once it's finished you may delete TFC.exe from your desktop or save it for later use for the cleaning of temporary files.
