Please Help me.  My fiancée's laptop computer is infected, and since we both use it, when we are at home, doing so has become a problem.  Please take a look at the attached hagjackthis.log file, and see what you can do to help me.  Thank you very much in advance for your kind assistance in this matter.Attached File  hijackthis.log   13.37KB   191 downloads  I shall look forward to your reply patiently, but expectantly, as this is my fiancée's only PC, even though it is a laptop, and thus portable, and it was expensive, so she is rather upset about this problem having occurred on her computer, and since we both use it, I told her that I would contact you, and see what you were able to do to help us.  Her Laptop is a Hewlett Packard Laptop, and was originally running Windows 7 Ultimate, but we recently upgraded to Windows 10 early in January of this year.  In Mid February, we started getting all kinds of pop ups, and it was getting increasingly difficult to get on the internet, or to use our Windows Media Player, or our Windows Photos Slideshow, because these nasty popups kept slowing us down.

Hi. My name is Brian, and I would be happy to look into your issue.
 


- General Instructions -


  • Please read all instructions and fixes thoroughly. Read the ENTIRE post BEFORE performing any steps so you understand all that needs to be done.
  • I would advise printing any instructions for easy reference as some of the fixes may require you to boot in Safe mode. Access to these instructions may not be available in Safe Mode.
  • Any fixes provided by myself are for this log file only and should not be used on any other systems.
  • Do not run any other removal software or perform updates other than the ones I provide, as it will complicate the cleaning process.
  • It's very likely that part of our cleanup will include emptying your recycle bin. If you use your recycle bin as an archive and do not wish this to be emptied, please let me know.
  • It is also likely during our cleaning process that your internet browsing history will be removed. Your favorites will be untouched. If you don't want this to happen you need to let me know before running any steps so I can adjust my fixes accordingly.
  • You have 4 days to reply to each post or the topic will be closed. You will be able to request that the topic be re-opened by sending me a PM (Personal Message) or PM a moderator.
  • Please feel free to ask any questions, especially if you are having problems with my instructions.


- Save ALL Tools to your Desktop-



All tools that I have you download should be placed on the desktop unless otherwise stated. If you are familiar with how to save files to the desktop then you can skip this step.
 
Since you are continuing with this step then I assume you are unfamiliar with saving files to your desktop. As a result it's easiest if you configure your browser(s) to download any tools to the desktop by default. Please use the appropriate instructions below depending on the browser you are using.
Chrome.JPGGoogle Chrome - Click the "Customize and control Google Chrome" button in the upper right-corner of the browser.Settings.JPG Choose Settings. at the bottom of the screen click the
"Show advanced settings..." link. Scroll down to find the Downloads section and click the Change... button. Select your desktop and click OK.
Firefox.JPGMozilla Firefox - Click the "Open Menu" button in the upper right-corner of the browser. Settings.JPG Choose Options. In the downloads section, click the Browse button, click on the Desktop folder
and the click the "Select Folder" button. Click OK to get out of the Options menu.
IE.jpgInternet Explorer - Click the Tools menu in the upper right-corner of the browser. Tools.JPG Select View downloads. Select the Options link in the lower left of the window. Click Browse and
select the Desktop and then choose the Select Folder button. Click OK to get out of the download options screen and then click Close to get out of the View Downloads screen.
NOTE: IE8 Does not support changing download locations in this manner. You will need to download the tool(s) to the default folder, usually Downloads, then copy them to the desktop.
 

- Finally Before We Start-


 
Removing malware is a complicated multiple step process, Please stay with me until I have declared your system clean. I strongly recommend you backup your personal files and folders. Although rare, attempting to remove malware can render your machine unbootable or cause data loss. Having backups of your data is your responsibility. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.

 

 

Let's begin. I need some logs from a more recent tool. Please do the following.

 

Step#1 - FRST Scan
 
1. Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
    Note: You need to run the 64-bit Version so please ensure you download that one.
2. Right click to run as administrator. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
3. Please ensure you place a check mark in the Addition.txt check box at the bottom of the form before running (if not already).
4. Press Scan button.
5. It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from (which should now be the desktop)
6. Please copy and paste log back here.
7. Another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST64.exe) will be generated Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.

You're machine is indeed very infected. Let's get you cleaned up. Please start with the following.

 

Step#1 - Uninstalls
Please uninstall the following programs one at a time. Instructions for doing so are here.
If any of the programs give you an error during the uninstall, notate it and move on to the next one. Just let me know which ones had issues. If you are asked to reboot, answer No until all the programs have been uninstalled and then you can reboot. All of these programs are either outdated, malware/adware, have a bad reputation or are not recommended. If you absolutely must have one of them I suggest that you wait until you are declared clean before reinstalling.

Step#2 - JRT by Malwarebytes
1. Download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
2. Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
3. The tool will open. Press any key at the Disclaimer screen and the program will create a restore point and then start scanning your system.
4. Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
5. On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
6. Close the text file and reboot your machine.
7. Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

 

Step#3 - AdWCleaner
1. Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
2. Close all open programs and internet browsers.
3. Right-click on AdwCleaner.exe and select Run as administrator to run the tool. Click I agree if you agree with the terms of use.
4. Click on Scan.
5. After the scan is complete, if you get a message that states "AdwCleaner found no malicious program on your computer!" then you can click OK and then click the Logfile button. Notepad will open with some information. Copy/Paste this into your next reply. No need to continue with the rest of the steps for AdwCleaner.
6. If you don't get that message then click on "Clean"
7. Confirm each time with Ok.
8. Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
9. Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
10. If need be, you can also find the logfile at C:\Program Files (x86)\AdwCleaner\AdwCleaner[C1].txt as well.

 

Step#4 - FRST Fix
NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system
1. Download attached file and save it to the Desktop. Attached File  fixlist.txt   32.68KB   100 downloads
Note. It's important that both files, FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work (in this case...the desktop).
2. Run FRST64 by Right-Clicking on the file and choosing Run as administrator.
3. Press the Fix button just once and wait. If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
4. When finished FRST64 will generate a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post the contents of it in your reply.
