Hiya MRIZAK and welcome to Malwarebytes,

You have Avast and McAfee installed, also Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes will run OK with either, but Avast and McAfee antivirus realtime protection will not run together without issues...

Are you aware of the following shortcut, did you set this up...

ShortcutAndArgument: SN_ValidationCode.lnk -> C:\Windows\system32\wscript.exe =>  /E:vbscript "C:\Users\cliot\AppData\Roaming\SN_ValidationCode.vbs"

Thank you,

Kevin

Hello MRIZAK,

Continue please:

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Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.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

Can you post the log from the fix, frstlog.txt, so I see if it worked correctly. Regarding the fix, the only obvious possibility was the VBS script running from a shortcut link. That is Visual Basic scripting that was originally developed my Microsoft to allow administrators to do advanced work on systems. Malware writers use it for very different reasons, obviously all malicious...

Hiya MRIZAK,

Thanks for the log, if no remaining issues we can clean up...

Uninstall the following program:

Sophos AV Also delete this folder if still present C:\ProgramData\Sophos

http://www.askvg.com/how-to-completely-uninstall-remove-a-software-program-in-windows-without-using-3rd-party-software/

Next,

Right click on FRST here: C:\Users\cliot\Downloads\FRST64.exe and rename uninstall.exe when complete right click on uninstall.exe and select "Run as Administrator"

If you do not see the .exe appended that is because file extensions are hidden, in that case just rename FRST64 to uninstall

That action will remove FRST and all created files and folders...
