"Drive-by exploit"

Recommended Posts

I received the email claiming that my Pc had been infected and this "person" has stolen my data and was holding it ransom. Computer was running fine, then I ran Avast full system scan then BOOM internet took a crap and my computer has been developing more and more symptoms. My internet isn't the best to begin with but its usually fine. So I have FRST, Malwarebytes, and ADWCleaner in preparation for getting rid of this thing. I ran MWB and it found one threat and was quarantined, ADWCleaner only really found the preinstalled lenovo software which i didnt get rid of. Going to upload these .txt files and if someone could help me it would be much appreciated. Wont be able to come back to view this subject until tomorrow morning once again thank you.

Well I understand that the email received may not have an affect but at the same time my internet is running at 1/4 speed when downloading and gaming as well as even the file browser is starting to become a little lack luster.

Then lets have @AdvancedSetup take a look at your logs. The email had nothing to do with your internet issues.

Hello @TimLawrence

I do not see any obvious signs of an infection. A couple of more minor issues.


Your Lenovo software is crashing. The following topics may potentially help you to resolve the issue if it continues.
