Skypebridge.exe Malware

Recommended Posts

Hello, my Windows 10 laptop seems to have a nasty infection.  At startup I receive a Skypebridge.exe error, my Antivirus program no longer starts with the system, and now the computer has no network connection at all.  I ran a Malwarebytes scan and it found nothing, but I am unable to update the program before scanning.  I downloaded Farbar Recovery Scan from another computer and moved it over to the infected machine with a usb drive, however since I am unable to connect to the internet on that machine, it will not pass the update check so I can actually scan and get a log file to post here.  Does anyone have any suggestions how I can work on getting this cleared up when I am unable to connect the the internet to get these recovery tools to pass the update checks?  Thank you for your time.

Hello, Welcome to Malwarebytes.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

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.

If still a problem connecting to the NET remove AVAST. 
Some errors are reported in the Addition.txt log.

Remove this program in bold via the Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.
Avast Free Antivirus (HKLM-x32\...\Avast Antivirus) (Version: 18.6.2349 - AVAST Software)

Restart the computer when completed.
This should restore Windows Defender.

Do not reinstall AVAST just yet.

Let me know what problem persists.
