Crazy Roommate, Keyloggers, and other fun

Recommended Posts

Hello there .... I am helping my friend with his laptop as he knows even less than I do! He is getting out of a living situation where a household member has a very disturbed mind and is now causing trouble for him in his everyday job and with his church.  He believes that the now ex roommate has key loggers, possible location tracking and a whole slew of other things installed on his machine.  I'm not sure how you want to do this but I will not let his machine online here at my place for fear that the crazy bastard will come after us here at our new location.  I'm sending this off my desktop but the attached files are from his computer.  We are also needing to have proof of any keyloggers or other types of malware so that this may be turned in to law enforcement for slander and defamation.  You guys have rocked for me before, hope we can do it again.  I just ran FRBR and they are attached below. Thanks again!

Hello @msbhvn-1 and :welcome:

I'm Android 8888 and I'll be helping you with your malware issues. Please ask questions if anything is unclear.

I will need some time to analyze your logs and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Hello @msbhvn-1

Thank you for your time and patience.

Please DO NOT run any tools on your own unless I ask you to do so.


I see that you have multiple Antivirus programs installed on your system:

AV: Windows Defender (Enabled - Out of date) {D68DDC3A-831F-4fae-9E44-DA132C1ACF46}
AV: McAfee VirusScan (Disabled - Up to date) {8BCDACFA-D264-3528-5EF8-E94FD0BC1FBC}
AV: AVG AntiVirus Free Edition (Enabled - Out of date) {4D41356F-32AD-7C42-C820-63775EE4F413}

You should only have one Antivirus installed at all time on a computer. Reason being that having more than one installed can cause system instability and conflict due to the way these programs works and interact with the system. If you want to read more about these kind of issues, I suggest you to read the "IMPORTANT NOTE" in quietman7's post here. This being said, I'll ask you to choose the Antivirus program you want to keep, and uninstall the other(s). Usually, you would keep the program you pay for (if that is the case), and uninstall the free one(s). If you pay for multiple products, keep the one you prefer the most, and uninstall the other(s).

Windows Defender (takes very few resources and runs in the background) is a good suggestion alongside with Malwarebytes Premium version.


I will ask you to remove the programs listed below by using Revo Uninstaller (see instructions below).
SereneScreen Marine Aquarium Lite
WebDiscover Browser 4.28.2

If you don't use this one, remove it as well:
Coupon Printer for Windows

Please download the free version of Revo Uninstaller Portable from here and save the compressed file to your computer Desktop.

  • Double-click the compressed file RevoUninstaller_Portable and extract the files within it (it will be created a folder with the same name);
  • Within that folder, right-click the file RevoUPort and select Run as administrator to open the tool;
  • Click Yes to accept the UAC security warning that may appear;
  • Click OK to accept the License Agreement and Copyright;
  • Select 'The Program to Remove' and click Uninstall. Follow the instructions to complete the removal process; Note: If it asks for a restart/reboot, select No/Later.
  • In 'Search Mode' set it to 'Advanced' and click on the Scan button. The tool will search for leftovers;
  • Click on Select All and then on Delete and then Yes to delete the selected items;
    Note: You may have to repeat this step to delete all the leftovers (Registry items, files and folders);
  • Click the Finish button and restart the computer to complete the removal process.

Note: You will have to run Revo more than once to completely uninstall each program listed above.
