Possible Malware/Keylogger Woes?


Recommended Posts

Posted in the Help section and was informed to post in this section for further assistance. 

 

Hey guys, so last night I was downloading some Android stuff to install a new OS on to my android phone. Well I guess I ended up downloadng some bad software and it did some funky stuff to my PC.

It started to change my Chrome web browser main page to some weird page, as well as it installed a Checkers Game, slowed the PC to a crawl, and when I restarted my computer the screen remained black.

 

So I immediately restarted my computer in Safe Mode and ran a MalwareBytes scan it and came up with over 100 PUP and malware, keyloggers, etc. I quarantined them all  and used the Restore feature from Windows and rolled back a few days and then I installed MalwareBytes and ran a full system scan and it came up clean. The PC has been running back to normal, fast, no hiccups, no weird activity.

 

My question is what are the chances of some undetected malware, keyloggers, etc are hiding still? I got a lot of personal stuff on the computer and as well as all my private banking, etc.

 

Should I do a full system wipe and start from scratch or am I being too paranoid?

 

Attached is my FRST and Addition files.

 

Thank you for any help in advance!

Hello xSouthx and welcome to Malwarebytes,

My screen name is kevinf80, i`m here to help clean up your system, continue as follows please:

Change the download folder setting in the default Browser so all tools we may use are saved to the Desktop:

Choose Settings. at the bottom of the screen click the
"Show advanced settings..." link. Scroll down to find the Downloads section and click the Change... button. Select your desktop and click OK.

Click Browse and select the Desktop and then choose the Select Folder button. Click OK to get out of the download options screen and then click Close to get out of the View Downloads screen.
NOTE: IE8 Does not support changing download locations in this manner. You will need to download the tool(s) to the default folder, usually Downloads, then copy them to the desktop.

In the new window select "Location" tab > clear the text field box and type in or copy/paste %userprofile%\Desktop > select "Apply" then "OK"

Be aware you are not changing the Browser download folder location, you are changing the user’s download directory location.....
