Anything look off in this farbar scan?


Recommended Posts

Dealing with a lot of application and service hangs on this PC.   The SAAZ processes are continuum managed services.   Machine had viruses and was cleaned to best of my ability.   Malware Bytes, ADW, and a few other various scans are coming up clean yet the issues continue.   Possible vulnerability or corruption left by the virus?   sfc was also performed and found no issues.  Thanks for anyone with the time to take a look!   If you want me to pull up any other logs I can, rkill is also clean.

Thanks Kevin,

I can post up the Malware Bytes log in a bit.  The PC tends to be used frequently during the day preventing me from getting these scans through.   I also got kicked out when running the Fixlist.txt through Farbar, and it took me a bit to get the PC rebooted.

Sophos and ADW were clean.   I attached the fixlog and adwcleaner txt.  I actually had Malware bytes just about complete, and it was still at 0 results when someone logged into the PC and closed it on me ><

Its a work PC but im not going to get paid to fix it sadly.   I was considering formatting, but curious if something is getting by me.   I do also work in computers but generally network design/implementation and phone systems, I may just be losing my touch in single PC repair.

I`m actually in the UK, local time for me is 23:15... I`ll be online maybe 1 more hour... I`d like to run CHKDSK and SFC /Scannow and then look at the logs...

Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories:

Right-click on the Command Prompt entry

Select "Run as Administrator" accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

At the Command prompt, type


hit the Enter key.

You will get a message that the drive cannot be locked, but that the command can be scheduled to run at the next boot - hit the Y key, press Enter, and then reboot.

The CHKDSK may take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

After the CHKDSK has run use the following instructions to find the log:

Check Disk report:
  • Press the WindowsKey + R on your keyboard at the same time. Type eventvwr into the run box and click OK.
  • In the left panel, expand Windows Logs and then click on Application.
  • Now, on the right side, click on Filter Current Log.
  • Under Event Sources, check only Wininit and click OK.
  • You mayl be presented with one or multiple Wininit logs.
  • Click on an entry corresponding to the date and time of the disk check.
  • On the top main menu, click Action > Copy > Copy Details as Text.
  • Paste the contents into your next reply.


Now run SFC.

SFC -System File Checker - Instructions

Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories

Right-click on the Command Prompt entry

Select "Run as Administrator" accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

At the Command prompt, type


hit the Enter key

Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

Copy the CBS.log file created (C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) to your desktop (you can't manipulate it directly) and then compress (zip) the copy and upload the zip file to your reply.

Thank you,

I get no errors in sfc or chkdsk.    I am running that Malware Bytes scan.   If it comes up 0 maybe just needs a format.   Was concerned some vulnerability was left behind or undetected.   May have been infected with multiple viruses a long time before he called me about it, and unrecoverable.   I appreciate you taking a look at the logs Kev.   Have a good night.

If the system is now responding ok we will need to clean up.... Obviously if the freezing returns then I agree, Format and Reinstall is the way to go...

Uninstall Sophos AV via Programs and Features...


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…
