Hi & :welcome:
My name is Jürgen and I will be assisting you with your Malware related problems.

Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. :excl:

  • My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.
  • Please read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.
  • Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.
  • If you have any problems while you are follow my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.
  • Do not run any other scans without instruction or Add/ Remove Software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.
  • Post all Logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
  • Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.

Step 1

Please uninstall some programs:

  • Windows 8 w8.png: Hold down the Windows logo key and press X to open a menu at the lower-left area of the screen.
  • Select Programs and Features from the menu.
  • Search and select the following programs one by one and click on Uninstall:

    Aff Packages
    Muvic Smartbar
    Muvic Smartbar Engine
    Search Protection


  • Reboot your computer.

Step 2

Please download mbam.png Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

  • Please open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
  • Please update the database by clicking on the "Update Now" button.
  • Following the update and click "Settings" and go to "Detection and Protection"
  • Make sure "Scan for Rootkits" is checked.
  • Click on Dashboard, then click on Scan Now to start the scan.
    (If Malware or Potentially Unwanted Programs [PUPs] are found, you will receive a prompt so that you can decide what you want to do. I suggest "Quarantine". Click the button: Apply All Actions.)
  • A window with an option to view the detailed log will appear. Click on "View Detailed Log".
  • After viewing the results, please click on the "Copy to Clipboard" button and then OK.
  • Return to our forum. Paste your log into your next reply.

Step 3

Please run Adwarecleaner adwcleaner.png (by Xplode)

  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select "Run As Administrator"
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • After rebooting, a log file (that is saved in C:\AdwCleaner[s#].txt) will open automatically.
    Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.

Step 4


Start FRST with administator privileges.

  • Make sure the following option is checked: addition.png
  • Press the Scan button.
  • When finished, FRST will produce two logs (FRST.txt and Addition.txt) in the same directory the tool was run from.
    Please copy and paste these logs in your next reply.
