:welcome:      Hello.


I will be guiding you as we go forward.  
I would like to ask that you always attach any report or file I ask for, from time to time.

The FRST reports do not show signs or hallmarks of any infection.  And the scan report from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware reports no malware.

Tell us, how do you play the online games ?  thru a web browser ? if so, which one ?

I see that this machine has Windows 10 build 1607. Have you apply the Microsoft August 2016 security updates from Windows Update ?

and since this is on build 1607, it has the Microsoft Windows Defender which can run the Windows Defender Offline scan.
Windows Defender Offline in Windows 10 can be run directly from within Windows, without having to create bootable media.

Click the Windows Start menu button on the Taskbar, select Settings icon.  Then choose Update and Security.
Then look on the right hand side and click on Windows Defender.
Then, scroll all the way down on the scroll bar, down to where you see "Windows Defender Offline"
Click on the button Scan Offline  to start the process and let it scan this system.

I play the online games thru Chrome version 52.0.2743.116  

The Microsoft August 2016 security updates have been installed on 16-08-10.

I will watch for updates every once in a while.  I just scanned for new updates today.

I ran a Windows Defender scan offline and nothing has been found.  No report seems to be available to look at.


The game that i play is hosting trolls trying hacking tools and/or injecting codes.  The site is hacked most of the time.  

I am just hoping there is no vulnerability in my computer allowing one of these trolls to steel personal information in my PC.

As stated before, FRST showed no signs pointing to infection.  Malwarebytes Anti-Malware report was good.  You also scaned with Windows Defender.

Beef up your browser security and other daily web use practices.

Go into the Options ( settings) of Internet Explorer  ( and any other web browser you have).
Make sure that the POPUP blocker is ON.
Set the option on for rejecting (decline) 3rd-party cookies.

And in addition to all that:
Use a good browser extension ( add on) ad blocker.  If your pc has no ad blocker add-on for your browser(s), I would suggest uBlock Origin.
For Mozilla Firefox, use the Mozilla page at this link

For Google Chrome, see

For Internet Explorer browser:

For Opera browser, see

*ALSO this too*
To help totally block these types of  "popups" I would recommend to *only use Firefox browser* that also has the addon for
*NoScript Suite Lite.*
and just only use that when surfing the web.
Tips and how to's for Noscript suite are on this page link

We have a free version Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (MBAE) that protects against exploit attacks in your browsers and Java, and a paid version that also protects additional applications such as MS Office.

I would recommend you install the Anti-Exploit in free use mode.   ( that is, if you do not have it from before).

Safer practices & malware prevention:
Follow best practices when browsing the Internet, especially on opening links coming from untrusted sources.
First rule of internet safety: slow down & think before you "click".
Free games & free programs are like "candy".  We do not accept them from "strangers".
Never open attachments that come with unexpected ( out of the blue ) email no matter how enticing.
Never open attachments from the email itself.  Do not double click in the email.  Always Save first and then scan with antivirus program.

Never click links without first hovering your mouse over the link and seeing if it is going to an odd address   ( one that does not fit or is odd looking or has typos).

Use a Standard user account rather than an administrator-rights account when "surfing" the web.
See more info on Corrine's SecurityGarden Blog http://securitygarden.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_7.html
Dont remove your current login.  Just use the new Standard-user-level one for everyday use while on the internet.

Have a hardware router between the incoming internet-modem and your computer.

Configure your Antivirus software to check for updates daily, at a time in which you are sure the computer will be on.

Check in at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com]Windows Update and install any Important Updates offered.

Make certain that Automatic Updates is enabled.
How to configure and use Automatic Updates in Windows

Pay close attention when installing 3rd-party programs. It is important that you pay attention to the license agreements and installation screens when installing anything off of the Internet. If an installation screen offers you Custom or Advanced installation options, it is a good idea to select these as they will typically disclose what other 3rd party software will also be installed.
Take great care in every stage of the process and every offer screen, and make sure you know what it is you're agreeing to before you click "Next".

Check on other update issues as well, by getting, installing and using Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) on a regular basis.
See How to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs using Secunia Personal Software Inspector ( by Flexera)

Keep your system and programs up to date. Several programs release security updates on a regular basis to patch vulnerabilities. Keeping your software patched up prevents attackers from being able to exploit them to drop malware.
I wish you well.  Have a good weekend.
