Hi Hezvex :)

Sincere apologies for the delay ~
If you still would like assistance, I'm 23red, you may call me Cindy if you wish, and it'll be my pleasure to assist you with your problem.  I am currently reviewing your log. 

It would be much appreciated if you posted the logs here ;)   as it makes it easier to work with. Our work is here.  Thank you :)

  In the meantime, I'd be grateful if you would note the following:

•  Please make sure to carefully read every post completely before doing anything.
•  If you're not sure, or if something unexpected happens do not continue! Stop and ask!  It is not a problem.
•  Please do not run any other scans or other software on your computer unless asked as it may make this repair more difficult.
•  Please stick with me until all malware is gone from your system.  Malware removal is not an instant process, just because you no longer see any symptoms it does not necessarily mean your system is completely clear.


•  Please copy/paste to Notepad and save my instructions as a text file on your desktop, or print them out, as you may not be able to access this thread at times.


Back up your data. I will not knowingly suggest your any course that might damage your system but sometimes Malware infections are so severe that only option we have is to re-format and re-install the operating system.


•  As I am currently in training, I will be helping you under the supervision of our Expert Teachers.   As such, there will likely be a delay between posts.   I do my best to respond as quick as I can.  I, like everyone else here am also a volunteer and sometimes life keeps me busy  ;)


•  Thank you for your understanding and I appreciate your patience.


Please allow some time to go through the logs you posted.  I'll post back as soon as possible.

Hi Hezvex :)


Welcome :D


There's a few items that are in need of attention, we'll start here:


Step 1

Peer to Peer Warning


Looking through your log, I've also noticed you have uTorrent installed. 
GeeksToGo does not recommend using such programs.  You should read the description of Peer-to-Peer programs below and decide for yourself.


Description of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) software:

P2P(Peer-to-Peer) may be a great way to get lots of seemingly freeware, but it is a great way to get infected as well. The program(s) may be safe, but there's no way to tell if the file being shared is infected. P2P programs, more often than not, install adware and/or spyware and worse still, some worms spread via P2P networks, infecting you as well.
Once upon a time, P2P file sharing was fairly safe. This is no longer true. P2P programs form a direct conduit inside your computer, their security measures are easily circumvented, and malware writers are increasingly exploiting them to spread their wares on to your computer. If your P2P program is not configured correctly, your computer may also be sharing more files than you realize. There have been cases where people's passwords, address books and other personal, private, and financial details have been exposed to a file sharing network by a badly configured program.

If you still need convincing, please read these short reports on the dangers of peer-2-peer programs and file sharing.

My suggestion would be for you to uninstall this Optional Removal:


The choice is yours.  If you decide to keep it, please refrain from using it until we are finished with cleaning.


Step 2
