Recommended Posts

Tes.txt

Hi been trying now for few days to solve this issue believe malware has made it onto my computer installed malwarebytes and followed it removing some registry keys and now scanning with Webroot and Malwarebytes nothing is coming up as suspicious but I keep getting regular report exploit blocks from malwarebytes, attached is the txt document from that report and below is the line. I have tried putting a few things in place to stop it like an outbound rule on the firewall to block mshta and I remember setting up a check in regedit (not sure what exactly so cant be more specific without looking into it)  But nothings seemed to work as Its still attempting to run. Can someone help please

Download FRST from this link:

Place it on your Desktop. 

Download attached fixlist.txt and put it to the desktop as well.

Start FRST tool and click Fix. Attach Fixlog.txt

Reboot your system and do let me know if you still get those exploit blocks.

Hello @Godssent2

Thank you for the logs. I'd like to have you run the following to make sure all is okay.

 

Please run the following steps and post back the logs as an attachment when ready.
Temporarily disable your antivirus or other security software first. Make sure to turn it back on once the scans are completed.
Temporarily disable Microsoft SmartScreen to download software below if needed. Make sure to turn it back on once the scans are completed.
If you still have trouble downloading the software please click on Reveal Hidden Contents below for examples of how to allow the download.

When downloading with some browsers you may see a different style of screens that may block FRST from downloading. The program is safe and used hundreds of times a week by many users.

Example of Microsoft Edge blocking the download

STEP 01

  • If you already have Malwarebytes installed then open Malwarebytes and click on the Scan button. It will automatically check for updates and run a Threat Scan.
  • If you don't have Malwarebytes installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and select Scan and let it run.
  • Once the scan is completed make sure you have it quarantine any detections it finds.
  • If no detections were found click on the Save results drop-down, then the Export to TXT  button, and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If there were detections then once the quarantine has completed click on the View report button, Then click the Export drop-down, then the Export to TXT  button, and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If the computer restarted to quarantine you can access the logs from the Detection History, then the History tab. Highlight the most recent scan and double-click to open it. Then click the Export drop-down, then the Export to TXT  button, and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If Malwarebytes won't run then please skip to the next step and let me know in your next reply that the scanner would not run.

STEP 02

Please download AdwCleaner by Malwarebytes and save the file to your Desktop.

  • Double-click to run the program
  • Accept the End User License Agreement.
  • Wait until the database is updated.
  • Click Scan Now.
  • When finished, if items are found please click Quarantine.
  • Your PC should reboot now if any items were found.
  • After reboot, a log file will be opened. Attach or Copy its content into your next reply.

RESTART THE COMPUTER Before running Step 3

STEP 03
Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've, run the tool before you need to place a check mark here each time
  • Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well.
  • On your next reply, you should be attaching frst.txt and additions.txt to your post, every time.

 

Thanks

Hi ,

I cant actually find the lnk file that you are referring to, i'm looking under my user but can't see Trello.lnk. I do recognise Trello as its the software we use for our Trello boards does it specify the full path for the file? 

Also have ran it as administrator and the files are attached. Currently I dont appear to be having any symptoms like I was priorwhere malwarebytes kept blockings Mshta, this has been since running FRST yesterday.
