Having trouble loading web pages after finding Adware.Trace


Recommended Posts

This doesn't happen so often that I can easily replicate it, but generally within 30-60 minutes of browsing I'll have it happen at least a few times. Basically, the page will just not load the first time. It acquires the site name but continues to infinitely load until I refresh, at which point it usually instantly loads. This tends to be for the site as a whole rather than elements of the site, however on occasion I have seen a sort of half load where the top of the page and the banner will appear, but the rest of the page will be empty with no indication that there's any additional content.


It all started this morning when my Sunday scan showed up with a Adware.Trace in the C:/end file. I quarantined it and that was that. Here's what I've tried to fix it since then:


ipconfig flushdns, renew, release

netsh winsock reset, netsh int ip reset

turning off my router for 20 minutes

restarting my PC

different browsers (normally on chrome, but problem persists on firefox) 

Running JRT, AdWCleaner and a deep custom scan with all boxes ticked with Malwarebytes. - All Clean

Windows Defender scan (desperate) - Clean


Running Roguekiller - This turned up an interesting find I need some help with as well. Program says it's a suspicious path. Going to the path, I cannot find the file. File directory actually says \??\C:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Temp\ALSysIO64.sys Not sure what the crap before C:\ is, but going to the Appdata\local\temp folder shows no such file.




So with all of that out of the way, I'm turning to you guys for some assistance. I'm not even sure if this is virus/malware related, but I desperately want to rule it out. So here's all the relevant logs I saw someone request in a previous thread. Let me know if I need to give more.
