Checking For Possible Infection

Recommended Posts

I was on www.slickdeals.net and my browser was redirected to what appeared to be a "congratulations, you've won" type scam. The Malwarebytes scan didn't find anything, but I want to check to see if there may be malware lurking on my computer. I have the MBAM scan, FRST, and Addition logs below. MBAM scan.txt

Addition.txt FRST.txt

Quick note: I just realized that I apparently forgot to enter in the one remaining license key I had from my Malwarebytes premium license. It is activated now.

Hello, Welcome to Malwarebytes.

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 Computer will restart when the fix is completed.

It will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

If the problem persists with the scam and you are Syncing Firefox it with other Devices reset it.

Navigate to this page and Remove it as suggested.

Return to your Firefox Account and Click the Connect button.

Reset the sync.

Restart the computer normally.
