Spyware and nasty note from my email reacieved

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang , 

Any help would be appreciated !

Came home and found a nasty email stating my pc had been hacked and they recorded things from my web cam and will send it to my hacked email account . From what I read this is all phony but I found malwarebytes detected some spyware tracker programs . 

Question :

Is this a keystroke program on my pc ? 

If this is a keystroke virus and If Malwarebytes finds this and reports it , I came back home a day later and found malwarebytes detected it ,  Does it automatically block someone form hacking my pc or watching my moves ? 

From what I read with Premium it does but just need to be sure about this

The logs are clean of malware.
This fix is just some maintenance that would do myself.

Please download the attached Fixlist.txt file to  the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
The location is listed in the 3rd line of the FRST.txt log you have submitted.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait.

The tool will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

Let me know if you have any issues with this computer.

Yes it is as no issues at all , knock on wood ...  Thank You for reaching out ! I run a small telephone system on it as well ! Seems to be ok as no visible signs of issues !  I learned a lot about what to look for in these situations as well from RDP to Key stroke trojans etc.
