So over the last few days I've noticed that my internet connection would drop for every device in the house when my PC was turned on. I tried changing to a wireless connection but unfortunately I would have the same problem. I think that it could be some sort of malware causing this and my suspicion of malware is only strengthened because I can't open Malware bytes. I've tried using Malwarebytes chameleon but that seems launch and scan, but always fails. I've tried other free malware/virus removers and they haven't found anything but my experience with malwarebytes in the past tells me the other program doesnt usually find the stuff MB does.

Hello MRPyro and welcome to Malwarebytes,

Run the following and post the two produced logs:

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

If your security alerts to FRST either, accept the alert or turn your security off to allow FRST to run. It is not malicious or infected in any way...
 
  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.(Windows 8/10 users will be prompted about Windows SmartScreen protection - click More information and Run.)
  • Make sure Addition.txt is checkmarked under "Optional scans"
  • Press Scan button to run the tool....
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The tool will also make a log named (Addition.txt) Please attach that log to your reply.

Thank you,

Kevin....

Yes i`m looking through your logs now... Do you know of this program C:\Program Files (x86)\Kloudian

I think it's something that came with my motherboard driver disk because there's something called "orbweb" in that folder and I remember that being installed with the drivers.

What exactly does it do, it loads at boot under other service names. Do you actually need it?

I don't think I need it, at least I never manually launch it to do anything with it. I use a BT home hub the 4.0 Type-A model

Thanks for all the help Kevin I really appreciate you giving your time! I couldn't use zemana because it had to connect to the internet and my problem is stopping me from accessing the internet. However I used the other programs and it looks like my computer is clean with 0 threats found and nothing needing to be removed. I'm still slightly concerned to why it is I cant open malwarebytes but anyway here are the logs you wanted.

Fixlog.txt

AdwCleaner[C2].txt

Thanks for all the help Kevin but it seems my internet provider has fixed the problem. It turns out it wasn't malware stopping me from connecting to the internet. Thanks for all the time and help!

Good to hear all is good for you now, continue as follows to clean up...

Use the following uninstaller to remove Zemana and Sophos....

Download GeekUninstaller from here: http://www.geekuninstaller.com/download (Choose free version) Save Geek.zip to your Desktop. (Visit the Home page at that link for necessary information)

Extract Geek Uninstaller and save to your Desktop. There is no need to install, the executable is portable and can also be run from a USB if required.

Run the tool, the main GUI will populate with installed programs list,

Left click on Program name to highlight that entry.

Select Action from the Menu bar, then Uninstall from there follow the prompts.

If Uninstall fails open the "Action" menu one more time and use "Force Removal" option

Next,

Download "Delfix by Xplode" and save it to your desktop.

Or use the following if first link is down:

"Delfix link mirror"

If your security program alerts to Delfix either, accept the alert or turn your security off.

Double Click to start the program. If you are using Vista or higher, please right-click and choose run as administrator

Make Sure the following items are checked:

 
  • Remove disinfection tools <----- this will remove tools we have used.
  • Purge System Restore <--- this will remove all previous and possibly exploited restore points, a new point relative to system status at present will be created.
  • Reset system settings <--- this will reset any system settings back to default that were changed either by us during cleansing or malware/infection


Now click on "Run" and wait patiently until the tool has completed.

The tool will create a log when it has completed. We don't need you to post this.

Any remnant files/logs from tools we have used can be deleted…

Next,
