Hiya fueryn,

Yes i`m in the UK, our times are far and wide apart. Post back with the logs whenever you`re ready, also give me an update on how your system is responding, any odd or erratic behaviour. Same with the browser you use, any odd or erratic behaviour, any redirects etc...

Ok, So I ran several scans of the following programs. The folder Im gonna attach will be zipped up and contain all the logs from each program. Going to give a quick summary of how each program went in chronological order. You can chose which to look at. 

  • So, I first ran a threat scan of malwarebytes. Everything went well and it didn't find anything. no rootkits or nothing.
  • Next, ran adware cleaner, found one pup. you can review in the log file. Successfully removed. 
  • Next step I ran Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool and did a quick scan. While scanning, it said it found 5 files infected, but when it was finished scanning, it said my computer was clean? Will come back to that. logs are attached


These are some extra scans I did with some reliable programs just to be safe. Don't have to review, but may find some things interesting.

Ran a scan with HitmanPro. It found some malware and successfully removed it. Can review in logs.

Ran Bitdefender. Did a complete computer scan and it claimed to have find nothing, but then 5 mins later after I moved on from bitdeffender, it started giving me notifications it removed malware found in my temp files while it ran in the background. I THINK I was able to get the log of this, and you will see it is under logs--->Bitdefender--->not scan. 

Ok here's the important stuff. Just to be EXTRA safe, I ran malwarebytes again, and did a custom scan. Configured it to scan for rootkits ect. and all my drives. While running the scan I noticed my computer screen went black and odd colors flashed for about 3 seconds before reverting back to normal. I imagine this was due to high cpu usage hopefully?  The only thing it found were two malware already quarantined by FRST. I went ahead and let it encrypt the file again. 

Next up ran Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool using a full scan. took the longest of all the scans going up to about 6 hours.  It claimed to have found 5,000 infected files, but I'm sure these files weren't actual threats. I went ahead and let it take care of them, but I somehow managed to lose the log file. Still not too troubled by it, it is a Microsoft built program after all :D

And finally, I did one more scan with FRST and Powertools, just to be safe. The logs are attached. 

I know this a lot to review, but I did notice that paypal button of yours. I appreciate all your efforts kevin, and I will definitely compensate for all your time in the coming week. Just got to wait for my paycheck XD

Hello fueryin

I do not see anything in those logs to cause concern apart from one entry that Malwarebytes failed to move...

CrackTool.Agent, E:\HOTSPOT SHIELD VPN ELITE 5.20.2 MULTILINGUAL + PATCH [4REALTORRENTZ].ZIP, Removal Failed, [66], [353502],1.0.3410

I`d advise that you be very careful of such software that comes with Cracks, Patches or Key gens, those extras are a prime conduits for malware writers to distribute their misery.

Apart from that you should be good to go... Do the following to clean up:

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 may 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…
