Will it be enough to just click the delete button with all of this quarantined files checked or would I need to do something else?

Do not delete the quarantine yet.

Please do the following so that we may take a closer look at your system for any possible infections.

Do these 2 steps FIRST so that files and folders are set to SHOW, plus also, Turn OFF Windows Fast Start.

Then please restart the computer and do the following.

WARNING: Do Not click the Repair option under Advanced unless requested by a Malwarebytes support agent or authorized helper

  • In the User Account Control pop-up window, click Yes to continue the installation
  • Run the MBST Support Tool. The tool also downloads and runs a file called FRSTEnglish. Please allow it to run.
  • In the left navigation pane of the Malwarebytes Support Tool, click Advanced

    Then be patient for the next expert to take your case.

The files are in text format. You can look at them with Notepad

They contain all the logs and information of what software is running on the computer and various other details so that we can try to locate the issue.

Without detailed logs we have no way to know what is wrong with your system

DNS is what lets users connect to websites using domain names instead of IP addresses

Pick just one of these 4 providers. And be aware that you need to modify 1 time for IPv4 & a 2nd pass for IPv6

  • Google Public DNSIPv4   8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4   IPv6   2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844

Please run the following fix

 

NOTE: Please read all of the information below before running this fix.

  • 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.

Once the fix has been completed, please attach the file FIXLOG.TXT to your next reply

Farbar program:   FRSTEnglish.exe

Save the attached file:  FIXLIST.TXT to this folder C:\Users\modcom_3\Downloads\

NOTE. It's important that both files, FRSTEnglish.exe, and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

Please make sure you disable any real-time antivirus or security software before running this script. Once completed, make sure you re-enable it.

 

 

Run the Farbar program with Admin rights and press the Fix button just once and wait.

The fix may possibly take up to 60 minutes to complete

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 named Fixlog.txt in the same folder you ran the Farbar program from. Please attach that log on your next reply.

 

  1. NOTE:  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.
  2. NOTE: 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 may be automatically closed.
                Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies may possibly be removed in some cases, but not all cases.
  3. NOTE: As part of this fix, it will also reset the network to default settings including the firewall. If you have custom firewall rules you need to save please export or save them first before running this fix.

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
  • Discord 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.

fixlist.txt

Thanks

Your current DNS Servers:   192.168.0.1   

Which is your Router.  That means a DNS Request goes from your PC to the Router and that's a hop and it then acts as a DNS Proxy and this slows the process down and the DNS proxy action can cause some problems. 
By hard coding fast DNS Servers directly into the PC's IP Stack you will get quicker and more reliable DNS Query Responses.

The base script has been run on hundreds of computers with no issues or damage.

Your script includes the path to your temp files as well as a few lines of items unwanted

It is extremely unlikely to do damage to the actual installation of Widows

I've helped thousands of people over the last 15 years and only a few users that simply had hardware issues or their system was too damaged to fix but none that have been damaged. I give the warning though just so users know there is always risk when doing malware removal.

and what about my second question about the security software, I mean if i won't disable it, will it just stop the fix or cause the fix for example to damage something. I mean I want to be sure what will happen if I for example accidentally miss one program and don't disable it.

Correct.

I cannot make you run it, but you came here looking for assistance. We have no intention of purposefully harming anyone's computer as people wouldn't come here looking for help much if we did that.

Make a full backup to an external drive if you're that afraid

See, you're still here with us. That wasn't too scary

The fix looks to have run well and found and fixed some other Windows issues

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.


The Windows Update service was broken and the fix says it was able to fix it

 

Please run the following

 

 

Please download the following tool

Farbar Service Scanner and run it on the computer with the issue
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-service-scanner/dl/62/

 

Make sure the following options are checked:

  • Internet Services
  • Windows Firewall
  • System Restore
  • Security Center/Action Center
  • Windows Update
  • Windows Defender

Click "Scan"

It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
Please attach the log to your next reply.
