Where to post the names of the files found on removal?


Recommended Posts

I have used the forums to run through the long extended steps to completely clean your system when a threat isnt removed by a pass of Malwarebytes, however I just cleaned my mother's computer and it removed some files that I am not sure if need further follow up. I would hope there was a forum section where on could post the path names that were found and get some advice to whether its a good idea to move onto the next steps of installing defogger and and a rootkit, etc.

Is there a place I could get any advice on these files and whether I need further follow up?

Loga attached as well

Normally if you need help with removal, and if you want to make sure that there is nothing left behind, we do that in the HJT section where the experts look over your logs and let you know if there is anything else lurking in your system....

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

As we don't deal with malware removal in the General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, you need to start a topic in the Malware Removal forum so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

  • Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.
  • After posting your new post, make sure under options, you select Track this topic and choose Immediate Email Notification, so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.
  • One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.
  • Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer (Install/Uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.

NOTE: Please DO NOT post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies. If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.

    • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
    • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.

Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk at support@malwarebytes.org or here.

Please be patient, someone will assist you as soon as it is possible.

PS: Please use the "ADDREPLY" t_reply.gif button instead of other ones when you start replying. :D

  • Root Admin

As long as a reboot and rescan show no other infections and you have no other symptoms such as search redirects in your browser then you should be okay.

However to really be certain if at all in doubt then it would be best to follow the directions provided and have one of the Experts assist you.
