Hi Chaosxprophet :)

My name is Aura and I'll be assisting you with your malware issue. Since we'll be working together, you can call me Aura or Yoan, which is my real name, it's up to you! Now that we've broke the ice, I'll just ask you a few things during the time we'll be working together to clean your system and get it back to an operational state.

  • As you'll notice, the logs we are asking for here are quite lenghty, so it's normal for me to not reply exactly after you post them. This is because I need some time to analyse them and then act accordingly. However, I'll always reply within 24 hours, 48 hours at most if something unexpected happens
  • As long as I'm assisting you on Malwarebytes Forums, in this thread, I'll ask you to not seek assistance anywhere else for any issue related to the system we are working on. If you have an issue, question, etc. about your computer, please ask it in this thread and I'll assist you
  • The same principle applies to any modifications you make to your system, I would like you to ask me before you do any manipulations that aren't in the instructions I posted. This is to ensure that we are operating in sync and I know exactly what's happening on your system
  • If you aren't sure about an instruction I'm giving you, ask me about it. This is to ensure that the clean-up process goes without any issue. I'll answer you and even give you more precise instructions/explanations if you need. There's no shame in asking questions here, better be safe than sorry!
  • If you don't reply to your thread within 3 days, I'll bump this thread to let you know that I'm waiting for you. If you don't reply after 5 days, it'll be closed. If you return after that period, you can send me a PM to get it unlocked and we'll continue where we left off;
  • Since malware can work quickly, we want to get rid of them as fast as we can, before they make unknown changes to the system. This being said, I would appreciate if you could reply to this thread within 24 hours of me posting. This way, we'll have a good clean-up rhythm and the chances of complications will be reduced
  • I'm against any form of pirated, illegal and counterfeit software and material. So if you have any installed on your system, I'll ask you to uninstall them right now. You don't have to tell me if you indeed had some or not, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Plus, this would be against Malwarebytes Forums's rules
  • In the end, you are the one asking for assistance here. So if you wish to go a different way during the clean-up, like format and reinstall Windows, you are free to do so. I would appreciate you to let me know about it first, and if you need, I can also assist you in the process
  • I would appreciate if you were to stay with me until the end, which means, until I declare your system clean. Just because your system isn't behaving weirdly anymore, or is running better than before, it doesn't mean that the infection is completely gone
    This being said, I have a full time job so sometimes it'll take longer for me to reply to you. Don't worry, you'll be my first priority as soon as I get home and have time to look at your thread

This being said, it's time to clean-up some malware, so let's get started, shall we? :)

Follow the instructions in the thread below, and provide me both FRST logs (FRST.txt and Addition.txt). You can attach them in your next post, or copy/paste their content.

So let me tell you this......

This just happen at 2:53 i was play a game on xbox had the pc on a chair maybe it got to hot but im not sure but it went to windows blue screen not the dark blue one but the one were it says something about collecting error reports after my other anti-virus program (Webroot) say a threat and it was ankhbot so i said sure get rid of it because it was acting buggy as hell and it wouldnt let me open it or delete its folder in the roaming app.date and now it did so it deleted everything. When this whole thing started i tried to get coin hive off my pc or so i thought and then i did a restore point 3 or 4 days before i got coinhive which was on the 10-2-2017 a few things had to go back a few updates and one of them was (ankhbot) so it might of hid there idk. Also im sorry for deleting what webroot secure told me to do and im supposed to wait for you so sorry if i mess that up :(.

Here. The Coin-Hive block notification is occuring because one of the website you are visiting is using the Coin-Hive JavaScript library to turn your browser into a Monero miner. However, Malwarebytes is preventing this behavior by blocking the domain to which the library connects.


In other words, you aren't infected, Malwarebytes is only preventing the culprit (website) from using your web browser as a cryptocurrency miner while you're on it.

I took a quick look at your logs and it doesn't look like you are infected to me. And since you don't have Malwarebytes Premium anymore, it means that connections to Coin-Hive.com won't be stopped, unless you have an Adblocker that blocks them (most of them have been updated for it by now). Or you have an extension that disables JavaScript (like NoScript on Mozilla Firefox).
