From one little problem to a major one.

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I was using my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop one day, and downloaded something, forgot what it was, but it was an .exe file.

I remember running it and then after that all my Dell Drivers has stopped working after the next boot. I tried to uninstall it and then reinstalling it again, but the same problem comes up. I ran a full scan using Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes picked up a few trojans. Here is the Scan Log:

After the scan, I thought that it was all over... I was wrong. When I started up my laptop, the Windows logo showed up, then everything went blank, all that's left was the cursor and some back light.

At that time, it was supposed to show the Desktop. But no, only back light and cursor. So I started task manager, and typed in "explorer.exe". Then it shoed the desktop. I tried to Google what it was, and I found out that it was called the "Black Screen Of Death (KSOD)".

So I did another full scan, Malwarebytes detected nothing. I used Windows Defender after that instead, and it found:

"TrojanDownloader:Win32/Renos.JM" A few times, and "Trojan:Hiloti.gen!A" twice. So, I Googled the names of the trojans and "Win32/Hiloti.gen!A" was a trojan which copies it self every time I boot my laptop. Not too sure about "Win32/Renos.JM" though.

Today, when I was browsing through the forums, my laptop suddenly went blue and some writing was on it, I only managed to read "Crash Dump". The laptop rebooted.

This time, Malwarebytes keeps notifying me that it blocked an IP Address:

If anyone knows how I could stop the trojans from copying itself, and how my Dell Drivers has stopped working every time I run it, I would really appreciate it.
