I don't really understand how, but when I went to get a file online, I apparently picked up a malware. My Avast alerted me and moved it to the chest. But since, my wi-fi signal has gone to pots on my PC (have a Ethernet card on desktop). It picks an chooses when it wants to receive signal. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Dynex software and also re-setup the Wi-fi router on the main desktop. My laptop connects without issue so I know it's not my Wi-fi Router. Also it's hit or miss but I have had some successful time online with this particular PC. So it has to be this particular system. Attached below is my OTL log. I tried to run Malwarebytes but it gives me a run time error, even after uninstalling and reinstalling again. I did however run the TFC program and it is at least now letting me get online. I have run a full scan through Avast but have yet to run an at boot time scan. Please help. Let me know if a boot time scan is necessary. Another thing that seems to be affected is my Roxio Back it up will not restore to a previous date.

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the
START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own.
If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Okay, I apologize for posting in the wrong area. I did indeed run all of the dianostics, as mentioned, prior to posting. I will repost in the right area.
