Windows Infected

Recommended Posts

A girl I am helping opened an attachment to a phishing email and got infected with a trojan (several actually). It started because Windows Defender wanted to reset the settings in chrome and asked. I then ran a scan using Windows Defender and it found a ton of trojans. I removed them all and downloaded Malwarebytes. I ran the scan using Malwarebytes and it was clean. I reran Windows Defender and it found a couple more trojans. Then Malwarebytes (which was running in the background) periodically was blocking an outbound connection to a site (attached). I would like some help to make sure I got everything, if someone could. 


Attached is the following:

  • Malwarebytes scan report
  • Malwarebytes Blocked site summary
  • FRST.txt
  • Addition.txt


Any help would be appreciated!

I was at the location yesterday but had to leave. I know you guys don't like people you are helping to make changes outside of the replies you give, but I had to leave. I saw the ATTENTION markers in the logs so I removed that product using the uninstall functionality in add/remove programs. I also reset Chrome settings from the dialog that appeared from Windows Explorer, so I think both of these are done. 

I was there an hour and did not see any blocked outbound attempts in Malwarebytes. I have a message to the person to let me know if they get any other outbound blocks or prompts to reset Chrome again. I am glad you seem to have found nothing more than I did in this logs. I will post again if anything new develops. Thank you for looking at this.
