Hello  @julie80

 

The %TEMP% folders are often filled with strange names due to how Windows operates with installing and working. We can go ahead though and check on your system to ensure there is nothing strange going on.

 

My screen name is AdvancedSetup and I will assist you with your system issues.
 

Let's keep these principles as we proceed. Make sure to read the entire post below first.

  • Removing pesky malware can be an involved set of tasks over separate runs. Have much patience. Follow my directions. 
  • Please follow all steps in the provided order and post back all requested logs.
  • Please attach all log files to your post, unless otherwise requested.
  • Temporarily disable Microsoft SmartScreen to download software below if needed. Make sure to turn it back on once the scans are completed.
  • Searching, detecting, and removing malware isn't instantaneous and there is no guarantee to repair every system.
  • Before we start, please make sure that you have an external backup of all private data.
  • Do not run online games while your case is ongoing. Do not do any free-wheeling of risky web-surfing.
  • Only run the tools I guide you to use. Please don't run any other scans, download, install or uninstall any programs while I'm working with you unless requested.
  • Cracked, Hacked, or Pirated programs are not only illegal but also can make a computer a malware victim.
    Having such programs installed is the easiest way to get infected. It is the leading cause of ransomware encryption. It is at times also a big source of current Trojan infections. 
    If there are any on the system you should uninstall them before we proceed.  
  • If your system is running Discord, or P2P Torrent software, please be sure to Exit out of it while this case is on-going.


Do these two steps so that ALL Folders & Files are set to SHOW, plus also, Turn OFF Windows Fast start.

  • Next, please restart Windows

  • Please be patient and stick with me until I give you the "all clear" or otherwise indicate all is good

 

To begin, please do the following so that we may take a closer look at your installation for troubleshooting. This is a report only.

NOTE: The tools and the information obtained are safe and not harmful to your privacy or your computer, please allow the programs to run if blocked by your system security.

  • Download the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  • In your Downloads folder, open the mb-support-x.x.x.xxx.exe file
  • In the User Account Control pop-up window, click Yes to continue the installation
  • Run the MBST Support Tool
  • In the left navigation pane of the Malwarebytes Support Tool, click Advanced
  • In the Advanced Options, click Gather Logs. A status diagram displays the tool is Getting logs from your machine
  • A zip file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to the Public desktop, please upload that file on your next reply

Thank you
