Hello and thank you for reviewing this.

My computer is infected with the Rootkit.Fileless.NTGen virus.  I have tried a number of tools to attempt to remove the virus, but it returns upon reboot/rescan.  I have included three log file for your review (FRST and MalwareBytes).  

FRST was run first and then MalwaeBytes.

Download attached fixlist.txt file (end of reply) and save it to the Desktop, or the folder you saved FRST into.

Hello Kevin,

First, I want to think you for your prompt response and information. 

I did as you instructed:
1) Ran the fixlist.

2) Removed software.

3) Ran AdwCleaner - It found a few items.  When I went to "Clean" the items, my computer seemingly froze (no ability to move the mouse, click OK, or CRTL-ALT-DEL for task manager.  This went on for at least 10 mins.  I re-ran the program after a hard shutdown, and it seemingly didn't find any problems. 

4) Ran Sophos.  Sophos found 1 problem (might have been a quarantined item).  I cleaned that.  Re-ran Sophos and nothing was found. 

5) I will run MalwareBytes in the AM.  If that is clear, I will inform you of such. 

Yes, I do plan to make a donation and I will update the thread once it is done.

Thank you,

Thanks for the logs and the update, yes we removed the infection with FRST fix. Latest logs look good now, if no remaining issues or concerns lets clean up....

Use thefollowing Uninstaller tool to remove Zenama 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…
