Hi Emeraldnzl!

 

I appreciate your feedback. . .

 

Perhaps you can expand on what you mean.

 

Mean that the expertise in the IT field, or not, in short the minimum knowledge required to be able to analyze log and apply the necessary corrections, since only analyze log is not enough.Finally, the profile required to be an excellent log analyst.


If it is your own computer and you have some experience then you can follow the tutorial but at your own risk. As mentioned in the tutorial it is strongly advised that you seek help from an expert if you are unsure about anything. If you were seeking help at Geekstogo you would open a topic in the Virus,Spyware,Malware removal forum here.

 

I am self-taught, sigoi some forums, especially in the area malware. . . I think it is interesting knowledge in this segment, not only to apply other cleaning software, but really know how the OS is after infection.
 
I already signed up on three sites (UNITE), one in Portuguese and two in English. In Portuguese nor response received, unless sign up every 30 days if not called. The English, as had explained my little knowledge in English (improved Google translator), I was kindly accepted and not the other, nothing reported.

 

I think I can help people with infected equipment, but probably in English, no.

 

Thanks to this site, as well as others whom I follow because it is through you that I will advance in the area.

Yep. . . So I'm watching probably it will happen. . . lol.
 
But I would still like to hear your response about what I requested anteiormente - knowledge and profile needed. . I wonder whether I am close or far these needs.
 
Who knows previous suggestion materials to study. . .
 
grateful

I have couple of questions about FRST so i hope someone will answer.

 

1) When i make fixlist is order important for example CloseProcesses,EmptyTemp etc. Does that matter ?

2) When i want to delete directory i know have to use command for it for single file,but how about multiple directories/files ?

 

Thanks

As far as CloseProcesses is concerned I always use it at the beginning but Farbar may add to that.

For the others please read the tutorial:
 

When EmptyTemp: directive is used the system will be rebooted after the fix. No need to use Reboot: directive.
Also no matter if EmptyTemp: is added at the start, middle, or end of the fixlist it will be executed after all other fixlist lines are processed.


RemoveDirectory:

To remove (not move) directories with limited perms and invalid paths or names. This directive should be used for directories that resist the usual move operation. If it is used in Safe Mode it should be very powerful and in RE it should be most powerful.

The script will be:

  

RemoveDirectory: path

 


For files see the section et al:
 

One Month Created Files and Folders and One Month Modified Files and Folders

Are the start and end commands necessary for fixlists? I've noticed some helpers have them, while others don't.

I apologize in advance if this was already answered already.

Hello,

 

Quote FRST Tutorial - How to use Farbar Recovery Scan Tool topic:

 

When EmptyTemp: directive is used the system will be rebooted after the fix. No need to use Reboot: directive.

 

In the past, when I use this command, at the end of the fixlist "The system needed a reboot" had a sentence. But lately, I do not see this sentence. Is there something about changing the command? does it reboot as before?

 

I hope it's not something I missed. :blush:

 

Regards.

Hello tekir06,

 

When I run it on my Win 10 machine I get this:

 

 

fixlist content:
*****************
EmptyTemp:
*****************

EmptyTemp: => 543.8 MB temporary data Removed.


The system needed a reboot.

==== End of Fixlog 07:48:14 ====

 

Seems to be working okay.

 

Just a thought, EmptyTemp: doesn't work in Recovery Mode... was it being used in RC mode?

No changes to EmptyTemp:. But under some circumstances a reboot might be not executed (eg. other running process preventing it). I've seen this behaviour few times.
