Let's get the info to get the process started. Be aware it will take many steps and scans to fully remove pesky malware.

Welcome smile.png
 
I'll be helping you with your computer.
 
Please read this post completely before beginning. If there's anything that you do not understand, please don't hesitate to ask before proceeding.
 
Please take note of the guidelines for this fix:

  • Please note that I am a volunteer. I do have a family, a career, and other endeavors that may prevent immediate responses that meet your schedule. Do note that the differences in time zones could present a problem as well. Your patience and understanding will be greatly appreciated.
  • First of all, the procedures we are about to perform are specific to your problem and should only be used on this specific computer.
  • Do not make any changes to your computer that include installing/uninstalling programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, nor running scanners or tools of any kind unless specifically requested by me.
  • Please read ALL instructions carefully and perform the steps fully and in the order they are written.
  • If things appear to be better, let me know. Just because the symptoms no longer exist as before, does not mean that you are clean.
  • Continue to read and follow my instructions until I tell you that your machine is clean.
  • If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask before performing the task that I ask of you, and please wait for my reply before you proceed.
  • Scanning with programs and reading the logs do take a fair amount of time. Again, your patience will be necessary. smile.png

Yeah, sorry, I’ve been very busy recently, so I haven’t had time to do the web cure it scan. I have done the FRST fix, though, and I will make sure to get around to the web cure it scan as soon as I can and upload the logs to both.

Here are the logs i got one detection for adware. I noticed something strange though for some reason during the drwebcureit scan, mid scan i was booted of my network and i had to sign back in, but im guessing that happened on drwebcureits part because it detected the adware.
