Hello Mayankjot.

Thank you for the report file.

As we go along, if you have a question, stop and ask first.

Please do not do any changes or fixes on your own.

The infection here is stopping ALL security softwares from running.

What follows is a first step.


Please read all of these lines first so that it is all clear to you about our plan. I need a one time run of MBAR like listed here, please.
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (MBAR) from here this link
and save it to your desktop.

( Click the Download button  .....ignore any other info text displayed there)


One the file is saved to your machine:

Double click on the MBAR file and allow it to run.

•Click OK on the next screen, to allow the package to extract the contents of the file to its own folder named mbar.

•mbar.exe will launch automatically. On some systems, this may take a few extra seconds. Please be patient and wait for the program to open.

•After reading the Introduction, click 'Next' if you agree.

•On the Update Database screen, click on the 'Update' button.

•Once you see 'Success: Database was successfully updated' click on 'Next', then click the Scan button.

With some infections, you may see two messages boxes:

1.'Could not load protection driver'. Click 'OK'.
2.'Could not load DDA driver'. Click 'Yes' to this message, to allow the driver to load after a restart. Allow the computer to restart. Continue with the rest of these instructions.

•If malware is found, press the Cleanup button when the scan completes. .


please also attach these logs are located in the mbar folder on your desktop where the tool extracted itself to.

mbar-log-2019-06-11  or 06-12  (xx-xx-xx).txt      ** (where xx-xx(xx-xx-xx) is the date and time of the scan)
