Hi.

Sory for my absence for 2 weeks. I realy had to take my mind to rest by not working overtime.


MS security updates initially had no chance to download becouse of the allarm + auto-shut-down. Last week, trying to run that SFC they did download but somehow failed to install though there was no auto-shutdown at that time. First 2 tries of the SFC passed within a fraction of a second, can't be right. In between i tried another MS-update which didn't succeed becouse of auto-shutdown. However after 2nd try of SFC the MS Security-updates did install. 3rd try of SFC succeeded partialy but then the scan did not recognize the Windows-CD's i have : 1 original Windows XP DVD (no Service Packs) and 1 burned only a few month's ago with the latest updates, burned by the new computershop nextdoor. Gees, i have the money but i'm not allowed to spend it at the computershops (one nextdoor) offering well-rounded (fineprint explains the ones using fineprint are not the ones to use) repair-services.



But......... Now........... Chips..........
It pains me to write it but this thread can be closed. Despite all the work i've done under guidance of Gringo_pr and Rshaffer61, our payed coördinator – the boss – has removed the computer and replaced it with one from which even he admits it has to be malware-ridden for sure. This while he normally "doesn't believe" in malware, anti-malware measures & malware-removal. Thinking you guys at GeeksToGo and all other fora are professionals earning money with scare-tactics. He doesn't know about old-time Free Data for Everyone World Wide Web convictions still being alive in present day Internet. And he's a Budhist working in the volonteer-bussiness amidst the seekers for help & guidance............


In short, this "new" comp was formerly placed at a sister-project and our employee there deliberately downloaded risky files and software directly into Owner and even into Hidden Admin-account.
I didn't copy the back-up files yet anyway. Maybe the boss will learn when he remains locked out from that "new" computer as long as i want him to be locked out.



Thank you Gringo_pr and rshaffer61 for your efforts, we'll have to start anew. I hope i'll have time this week to open a new thread but i don't think so. At least Internet and phone in my flatblock are working again, but that's another story at the end of our providers and the network-manager (who's also 1 of involved providers).



Thank You MalwareBytes for quaranteining 138 PUP's and 1 PUM – disabled Windows Security Center warnings.

Thank you for the update and hopefully if the new system is just malware our great malware team can get that cleaned up for you. Thank you for allowing me to assist you and I wish you well with the new system.
