White Screen Virus removal help

Recommended Posts

A coworker who isn't very computer savvy asked me to look at her computer because it was acting weird. She described it to me and as far as I can tell it's some variant of the White Screen trojan/ransomware. (I have not seen it as it only pops up at home on her network) She says a full screen white page pops up claiming to be from Time Warner Cable (her ISP) with a number to call to make it stop happening. She called and apparently paid around $70 for them to do a remote desktop session overnight to "fix" the problem. Well besides the obvious scam, they apparently removed the antivirus I installed to her the day before so I don't know what else they might have done. I've run every program I know how to run confidently. I can get the logs from FRST or anything else but I don't know how to analyze them yet so that is what I would like help with unless there are other options. I will attach the FRST log to get started and just let me know what you need from there. Thanks!

Awesome! Here we go, the FRST fix results and I left ESET online scanner running when I finally have to give it up and get some sleep and it found that. I will get the other results and post them ASAP. I don't think all of these scans will finish before I have to go to work but I'll do what I can. If it helps anything now I have run malwarebytes and adwcleaner until there were no more detections.

Her computer is very slow. I'm still waiting on malwarebytes to finish. I'm going to have to head to work here in the next half hour and I'll have to take it back to her. If she doesn't mind I'll keep it and bring it back with me to finish up those other programs tonight or I'll see if I can get that done on my lunch. While I have you though, can you recommend a good antivirus program to install that is as self sustaining as possible? I would normally put avast on there but she would have to do something with it after the first year to keep it active. This is a person who prefers the windows 8 start screen to a desktop environment and can't be talked away from internet explorer. Just something to hopefully keep this kind of thing from happening with as little user interaction as possible. Thank you very much!

For the time being I'm not going to be able to provide those yet. She needed her computer back and it will be a few days before I see her and find out if it's resolved. I appreciate the help and if possible I would like to keep this thread open for a few extra days until I hear back from her.
