Concerned I May Be Infected

Recommended Posts


On my computer, I haven't had any symptoms of infection, but am concerned due to some potentially weird activity on my Google Account. I have had help recently and therefore followed the steps that I was given before to save some time (thanks Kevin :D).

I ran:

1) Malwarebytes with Rootkits for both my C and D drives
2) AdwCleaner + Ran Basic Repair

Attached are the log files from each of those.


Thank you!

Hi @AdvancedSetup!

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll happily go through with these steps, but my concern is that there is malware on my PC doing something to my Google Account via my computer. My Chrome browser doesn't seem to be misbehaving at all. 

I asked for help with another computer and was given a txt file to be used with FRST - I was hoping for the same thing here if possible. Then the person helping had me run a Microsoft tool to double check everything.

Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop or location where you ran FRST from.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64, and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system that cannot be undone.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt) or wherever you ran FRST from. Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

NOTE-1:  This fix will run a scan to check that all Microsoft operating system files are valid and not corrupt and attempt to correct any invalid files. It will also run a disk check on the restart to ensure disk integrity. Depending on the speed of your computer this fix may take 30 minutes or more.

NOTE-2: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed. The use of an external password manager is highly recommended instead of using your browser to store passwords.

The following directories are emptied:

  • Windows Temp
  • Users Temp folders
  • Edge, IE, FF, Chrome and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History
  • Recently opened files cache
  • Flash Player cache
  • Java cache
  • Steam HTML cache
  • Explorer thumbnail and icon cache
  • BITS transfer queue (qmgr*.dat files)
  • Recycle Bin

Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix.

The system will be rebooted after the fix has run.
