Unable to remove malware infection

Recommended Posts


I previously was on here for a similar issue, idk if it's still the same thing to be honest; I thought it was resolved till yesterday.

I went as far as to try and reinstall windows even. Getting super frustrated. I ran FRST.exe and attached both the log files from it.

adwcleaner and malwarebytes wouldn't pick it up and before reinstalling windows I tried using a kapersky boot usb to fix it with no avail.

any help would be much appreciated! I'm getting a bit frantic.

Well, after coming home I realized my system was acting up to which I scanned with malwarebytez, this returned 11 entries that were infected and removed; so I ran the scan again and it showed up as clean however the original sluggishness didn't stop with the removal. Upon looking in my disk memory in resource monitor I saw some read/write processes that seemed a bit odd and were eating up my read/write value and during this my cpu was spiking or so it seemed. Maybe I am delusional idk

Can you post the log from the scan you did with Malwarebytes:

Open Malwarebytes, select > Reports > then checkmark (tick) most recent "Scan Report" entry > then select "View Report" > "Export" > Text File (*.txt) name and save that file to Desktop or somewhere of your choice, attach to your reply...

Also lets run a very thorough online AV scan to double check your system:

Download Sophos Free Virus Removal Tool and save it to your desktop.

If your security alerts to this scan either accept the alert or turn off your security to allow Sophos to run and complete.....

Please Do Not use your PC whilst the scan is in progress.... This scan is very thorough so may take several hours...
  • Double click the icon and select Run
  • Click Next
  • Select I accept the terms in this license agreement, then click Next twice
  • Click Install
  • Click Finish to launch the program
  • Once the virus database has been updated click Start Scanning
  • If any threats are found click Details, then View log file... (bottom left hand corner)
  • Copy and paste the results in your reply
  • Close the Notepad document, close the Threat Details screen, then click Start cleanup
  • Click Exit to close the program
  • If no threats were found please confirm that result....

The Virus Removal Tool scans the following areas of your computer:
  • Memory, including system memory on 32-bit (x86) versions of Windows
  • The Windows registry
  • All local hard drives, fixed and removable
  • Mapped network drives are not scanned.

Note: If threats are found in the computer memory, the scan stops. This is because further scanning could enable the threat to spread. You will be asked to click Start Cleanup to remove the threats before continuing the scan.

Saved logs are found here: C:\ProgramData\Sophos\Sophos Virus Removal Tool\Logs

Thank you,
