Need fixlist.txt file made for windows process manager virus

Recommended Posts

A few days ago I somehow got a windows process manager virus, It also seems to have done something to my chrome browser. I have been following step by step on this Post which is almost identical to the issue I am having. I have gotten all the way to booting in advanced startup in order to run fixlist.txt on frst64 but I do not have a fix.txt file. I will provide some images of the situation and all the files that might be needed to help fix this. If someone is able to help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.

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.

I have identified a bad SmartService infection. The same type you found in the 2017 log.
The instructions have been changed. 

You will need access to a spare PC and a USB flash drive that has not been in contact with the sick PC...
Let me know if you have access to these devices.

I need to know before suggested the fix if you can enable the Recovery Environment.
It will be needed to remove this infection.

Open FRST on the compromised computer:

copy/paste the following inside the text area of FRST. Once done, click on the Fix button. A file called fixlog.txt should appear on your desktop. Attach it in your next reply.

CMD: bcdedit.exe /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes
CMD: bcdedit.exe /set {default} recoveryenabled yes


On completion, a message will come up saying that the fix has been completed and it'll open a log in Notepad
Copy and paste its content in your next reply.

Wait for further instructions.

Lets proceed:

Read all the instructions before proceeding.
Take your time and all should be well.

Preparing the USB Flash Drive

On that same PC download the right version of Farbar program for your system to Desktop or the Flash drive.
Download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST).
Choose the 32 or 64 bit version for your system.

If the file was saved on the Desktop Move the executable (FRST.exe or FRST64.exe) to your USB Flash Drive 

How to determine whether a computer is running a 32-bit version or 64-bit version of the Windows operating system.

Do not plug the Flash Drive into the sick PC until booted to Recovery Environment.

Please boot to normal mode and run this fix.

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.

Reset Chrome

Open Google Chrome, click on menu icon google-chrome-setting-icon.png or the 3 vertical dots located right side top of the google chrome.
Click "Settings" then "Show advanced settings" at the bottom of the screen.
Click "Reset and clean up" > "Restore settings to their original defaults"
Restart Chrome.

Please post the Fixlog.txt and let me know what problem persists.


If unable to boot to Normal Mode boot to Safe Mode with Networking and run the fix.

When the local computer boots after the fix please run Malwarebytes and delete all reported items.
Restart the computer when completed.

Run the Farbar program and post fresh FRST.TXT and Addition.txt logs for my review.
Make sure that the box to create a Addition.txt is marked to create a fresh log.

Let me know what problem persists.

When I click a link in another application on my computer like discord, slack, etc. chrome does not open up the link I click on anymore. I am not sure about the other browsers because I never use them but when I used to open links they would automatically open in chrome and now they do not. The only link I have gotten to automatically open when clicked is gyazo image capture, which is now opening in internet explorer even though it used to open in chrome and chrome is still the default browser. Also the chrome icon is gone, I will attach a picture.

My chrome problem is solved thank you but one last thing, the virus locked me out of my windows defender settings so now I no longer have access to it. Here is a picture showing the problem.

Download   Farbar's Service Scanner utility
and Save to your Desktop.
If using Windows 7 or above, Right-Click on fss.exe and select Run As Administrator.
If using XP, double-click to start.
Answer Yes to ok when prompted.
If your firewall then puts out a prompt, again, allow it to run.
Once FSS is on-screen, be sure the following items are checkmarked:
Internet Services
Windows Firewall
System Restore
Security Center/Action Center
Windows Update
Windows Defender
Other Services
Click on "Scan".
It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
Copy & Paste contents of FSS.txt into your reply.
