Hello,

Does this happen in you browser only or when you use notepad too?

 

FRST.gif Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

icon_exclaim.gif This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine. icon_exclaim.gif


icon_exclaim.gif Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. icon_exclaim.gif

Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

  • Right-click on FRST.gif icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
  • When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please upload it to your reply.

Hi,  Stunner4u.
My name is Maurice. I will be helping and guiding you, going forward on this case.

The last scan report from Malwarebytes for Windows did show notations 

Quote

No Action By User

which means that the line items were not ticked for removal.

 

Sorry, please just put the last suggestion I made on hold.

I see something else that we should do first.   Please hold on.

Hi.

This is a custom script fix to remove some "rogue" "disallow certificate" entries, plus, delete the files from last scan by Malwarebytes.  The prior scan did not remove any files.

some "crack" type files were reported.

 

Please Close and Save any open work you may have open.
Please close as many un-needed app-windows that you yourself may have open at this point.   So you can have a clear field of view.

This custom script is for  Stunner4u     only / for this machine only.

Delete the previous Fixlist.txt  that you saved before.


Close and save any open work files before starting this procedure. 

Please Close and save any open work files before you start this next step.  It will involve a Windows Restart at the end of it.
I am sending a   custom Fix script which is going to be used by the FRST tool. They will both work together as a pair.

Please RIGHT-click the (attached file named) FIXLIST and select SAVE  link AS and save it directly ( as is) to the  DESKTOP

The tool named FRST.exe   tool    is already on the Desktop
Start the Windows Explorer and then, to the Desktop.


RIGHT click on  FRST    and select RUN as Administrator and allow it to proceed.  Reply YES when prompted to allow to run.
  to run the tool. If the tool warns you the version is outdated, please download and run the updated version.
IF Windows prompts you about running this, select YES to allow it to proceed.

IF you get a block message from Windows about this tool......
click line More info information on that screen
and click button Run anyway on next screen.

on the FRST window:
Click the Fix button just once, and wait.

PLEASE have lots and lots of patience when this starts. You will see a green progress bar start. Lots of patience. This run here should be fairly quick.
If you receive a message that a reboot is required, please make sure you allow it to restart normally.
The tool will complete its run after restart.
When finished, the tool will make a log ( Fixlog.txt) in the same location from where it was run.
Please attach the FIXLOG.txt with your next reply later, at your next opportunity

Look for the white box at the very bottom.   That is where you can begin the reply.

Just please do not click on "Quote" spot of my posting.   Otherwise, this thread becomes super large when viewing.

This is to say, disregard and do not use the "Quote" link   at the bottom of my post.

Thank you very much.

Let's be sure that this machine 's Windows was restarted one time today.   There was some cleanups that it needed to do that required a Restart.

.

This next scan will not take a lot of time.

The Microsoft Safety Scanner  is a free Microsoft stand-alone virus scanner that  can be used to scan for & remove malware or potentially unwanted software from a system. 
The download links & the how-to-run-the tool are at this link at Microsoft 
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/intelligence/safety-scanner-download
  
Let me know the result of this.
The log is named MSERT.log  
the log will be at  %SYSTEMROOT%\debug\msert.log   which in most cases is
C:\Windows\debug\msert.log
Please attach that log with your reply.

Thank you for the Safety Scanner log report.

I would suggest a free scan with the ESET Online Scanner
Go to https://www.eset.com/us/home/online-scanner/

Look on the right side of the page.  Click Scan Now

It will start a download of "esetonlinescanner_enu.exe"

Save the file to your system, such as the Downloads folder, or else to the Desktop.

Go to the saved file, and double click it to get it started.

When presented with the initial ESET options, click on "Computer Scan".

Next, when prompted by Windows, allow it to start by clicking Yes
When prompted for scan type, Click on Full scan

Look at & tick  ( select )   the radio selection "Enable ESET to detect and quarantine potentially unwanted applications"   and click on Start scan button.

Have patience.  The entire process may take an hour or more. There is an initial update download.

There is a progress window display.
You should ignore all prompts to get the ESET antivirus software program.   ( e.g.  their standard program).   You do not need to buy or get or install anything else.
When the scan is completed, if something was found, it will show a screen with the number of detected items.  If so, click the button marked “View detected results”.
Click The blue “Save scan log” to save the log.
If something was removed and you know it is a false finding, you may click on the blue ”Restore cleaned files”  ( in blue, at bottom).
Press Continue when all done. 

You should click to off the offer for “periodic scanning”.

That is news that is very much appreciated.   It is something that does shed new light on an aspect of this sort of situation.  Thank you very much for that.

I would  still encourage you to run the ESET Online scanner.   That would be an added edge to check this system.

 

One other thing I would like to point out to you, given that this system is running Windows 7.

Windows 7 reached end-of-life support with Microsoft a few weeks back this year, 2020.   That was on January 14, 2020.

The one thing that is potentially available is to upgrade this Windows 7  to Windows 10, for free,  using Microsoft venue.

If that process runs and completes,  it should result in a working Windows  & it would be the current release of Windows 10.

 

But to do that upgrade, Windows must be in regular normal mode.

You should also take time to insure that Windows is not set with a power saving setting   ( so that the screen does not go dark during the long process of updating).

Turn off the battery save   settings  ( if any )

Click the Windows Start Orb, and then Click the Control Panel    Click the Power Options control panel link.

be sure that nothing in there will turn off the Display or the Disk

 

The update run can easily take many several hours, something like 5, 6 hours or so.

The upgrade will keep all your files  and installed apps.   There are provisions in there to "keep all my files".

The upgrade though needs a working Windows , which must have an internet connection, and be in normal regular mode.

You will need a USB with a minimum capacity of 8 GB  in order to make the Microsoft Media Creation.

 

See and read over the guide at Tenforums   https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/139745-upgrade-windows-10-windows-7-free.html

Be sure you have a good sense of what all needs to be done.

and if this pc has a non-Microsoft antivirus,  that needs to be set to OFF  beforehand.   It may even be best to entirely uninstall the antivirus.

Windows 10 includes its own free & very good Microsoft Defender Antivirus.

 

In brief, one first goes to point 1  on the article.   Click the blue Download button under point # 1   and save it to your system    ( Download folder is a good folder for saving)

After the download completes, run the Media Creation Tool, which runs under Windows 7. 

Choose the Upgrade this PC now option and follow the instructions. 

Notes from personal experience, if the machine is a laptop or notebook, be sure it is plugged in to regular Power.

And if the display screen ever goes dark, do not freak out.   That will happen.   You may simply use the mouse and make cicular movements with it around the monitor.   The intent being to eventually get the display to refresh itself.

Just have lots, lots and lots of patience.   And any status display may lag.   Have lots of patience.

.

Do let me know if you need other help.

Very sincerely,

Maurice

Backup is your best friend.  Keep backups of your system on a regular basis to offline storage & keep those safe. https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/136226-backup-software/

It is not enough to just have a security program installed. Each pc user needs to practice daily safe computer and internet use.

Best  practices & malware prevention:
Follow best practices when browsing the Internet, especially on opening links coming from untrusted sources.
First rule of internet safety: slow down & think before you "click".
Never click links without first hovering your mouse over the link and seeing if it is going to an odd address ( one that does not fit or is odd looking or has typos).

Free games & free programs are like "candy". We do not accept them from "strangers".

Never open attachments that come with unexpected ( out of the blue ) email no matter how enticing.
Never open attachments from the email itself. Do not double click in the email. Always Save first and then scan with antivirus program.

Pay close attention when installing 3rd-party programs. It is important that you pay attention to the license agreements and installation screens when installing anything off of the Internet. If an installation screen offers you Custom or Advanced installation options, it is a good idea to select these as they will typically disclose what other 3rd party software will also be installed.
Take great care in every stage of the process and every offer screen, and make sure you know what it is you're agreeing to before you click "Next".

Use a Standard user account rather than an administrator-rights account when "surfing" the web.
See more info on Corrine's SecurityGarden Blog http://securitygarden.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_7.html
Dont remove your current login. Just use the new Standard-user-level one for everyday use while on the internet.

 
Do a Windows Update.

Make certain that Automatic Updates is enabled.
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12373/windows-update-faq

Keep your system and programs up to date. Several programs release security updates on a regular basis to patch vulnerabilities. Keeping your software patched up prevents attackers from being able to exploit them to drop malware.

I wish you all the best.
