Am I infected?

Recommended Posts

I've noticed my pc has often become very busy and even freezing even if I'm not doing anything on it. I couldnt set up my malwarebytes anti-malware and thought it was due to MS Defender. When running Defender it would run and run but never really give any report. Today I tried to change back to malwarebytes and I coulnd't.

I ran the two reports attached.
I dont recognize this (hosted by http://websitewelcome.com/) www.advanced-printerzzzs.com (one of my domains with a modified ending).
I also see dropbox mentioned in document, I havent used Dropbox for a very long time (years).

Thanks for *any* input!

It looks okay. Let's make some maintenance:


FRST.gif Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

icon_exclaim.gif This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine. icon_exclaim.gif

icon_exclaim.gif Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. icon_exclaim.gif

Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

  • Right-click on FRST.gif icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
  • When finishes FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please attach it to your reply.

Good to hear. Tried to scan with Win Defender but it goes extremely slow, about 15% scanned after 12 hours.  My MB anti-malware refuses to open, nothing happens after double clicking. Downloading again would mean paying again since I can't find the code or purchase receipt in my documents. Don't know what to do really...

  • Please download HWMonitor and save it to your Desktop.




  • Unzip it and run the version compatible with your system architecture. If you are unsure which one you should run, run them one by one and one of them should work.
  • Make a picture of HWMonitor window and attach it in your next message.

I think you have some overheating issues, based on these graphs. I could be wrong, but it looks unusually high temp. Have you ever cleaned your laptop from dust? If not, now is the time. Meanwhile you should contact MalwareBytes support to obtain your license.
