I have used Panda Antivirus only to found out I've had Trojans injected into my computer and hacking tools (Conduit) inserted in my PC; that weren't there until I busted the Security Hijack malware and I have experienced my webcam turning on, when I wasn't using any video call or picture program; I found it very creepy and I didn't get a good feeling.


I keep running scans to clean any other malware but shows up none, I cannot run MBAM either nor I cannot hear my speakers at all, as if someone disabled it. (Yet it shows up as enabled.) 

Sometimes, I also experience my mouse cursor move without my permission and my mouse isn't old. Sometimes, I find new programs have been installed I didn't give approval for as well and ads keep on popping up, I keep changing my search engine to Google but some PUP keeps changing it back to the way it was, for instance, search.conduit, search.us, etc. 


I have a firewall on, using antivirus and I've tried to do system recovery but guess what? Says there's a required device missing and some hardware change happened. Now I cannot restore my computer! 


What can I do to first kick this bugger off and then prevent any other connection? How do I get rid of their backdoor trojan (even though I can't find it?) Is there a way I can create a recovering disc so I can recover my PC from a DVD-RW?

My name's Naathim and I'm a GeekU Minion! Now that we are mates and will be working together to clean your machine out of any junkware, feel free to call me Naat :)

Before we start please note the following:

icon_arrow.gif Analysis and research take some time, also sometimes real life gets in the way, please be patient.
icon_arrow.gif Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
icon_arrow.gif Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
icon_arrow.gif Paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work harder and more complicated.
icon_arrow.gif Stay with me to the end, the absence of symtoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
icon_arrow.gif Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.

icon_idea.gif I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
icon_idea.gif There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

Let's start and enjoy the fight! :)
