I started an extensive cleaning process and will some day soon wipe everything that is connected to the PC but right now I need to use it for work and con not, things seem to be OK, malwarebytes finds no malware and Avira finds no viruses now.. but every 6 hours or so I get a notification from Malwarebytes that it is blocking powershell form visiting various sites

    Don't worry about JRT.  Not sure what went wrong ther.  Will look into it.

     

    Your FRST logs look pretty clean.  Let's run DISM and SFC and make sure no system files were compromised:

     

    Open an elevated command prompt:
     
     
    If you open an elevated command prompt it will by default open in c:\Windows\system32
     
    Once you have an elevated command prompt:
     
    Type:
     
     DISM  /Online  /Cleanup-Image  /RestoreHealth
     
     (I use two spaces so you can be sure to see where one space goes.)
    Hit Enter.  This will take a while (10-20 minutes) to complete.  Once the prompt returns:
     
    Reboot.  Open an elevated Command Prompt again and type (with an Enter after the line):
     
    sfc  /scannow
     
     
     
    This will also take a few minutes.  
     
    When it finishes it will say one of the following:
     
    Windows did not find any integrity violations (a good thing)
    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and repaired them (a good thing)
    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some (or all) of them (not a good thing)
     
    If you get the last result then type:
     
    findstr  /c:"[SR]"  \windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log  >  \junk.txt 
     
    Hit Enter.  Then type::
     
     
    notepad  \junk.txt 
     
    Hit Enter. 
     
     Copy the text from notepad and paste it into a reply.
     
     
    After you finish SFC, regardless of the result:
     
     
     
    1. Please download the Event Viewer Tool by Vino Rosso
    and save it to your Desktop:
    2. Right-click VEW.exe and Run AS Administrator
    3. Under 'Select log to query', select:
     
    * System
    4. Under 'Select type to list', select:
    * Error
    * Warning
     
     
    Then use the 'Number of events' as follows:
     
     
    1. Click the radio button for 'Number of events'
    Type 20 in the 1 to 20 box
    Then click the Run button.
    Notepad will open with the output log.
     
     
    Please post the Output log in your next reply then repeat but select Application.  (Each time you run VEW it overwrites the log so copy the first one to a Reply or rename it before running it a second time.)

    Just paste in a Reply - don't bother with the Spoiler stuff.  Just makes them harder to work on.

     

    Search for:

    services.msc

    hit Enter

     

    Find NetMsmqActivator

    right click and select Properties then change the Startup Type: to Disabled.  OK.

     

    repeat for

     

    NetPipeActivator

     

    Find 

     

    Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework

    right click and select Properties then change the Startup Type: to Automatic.  OK.

     

    While in services menu see if 

     

    Background Intelligent Transfer Service is running/started

     

    Close services menu

     

    Search for

     

    PC Settings

     

    hit Encer

     

    Change

    "Sync your Settings" section

     OneDrive\Sync Settings, turn off the switch, 

    (Hope that makes sense as my Win 10 tablet doesn't want to start up today.)

    Close PC Settings

     

     

     

    Then

     

    Copy the next 4 lines:

    dir /a /s \Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\SettingSync > \junk.txt
    sc start luafy
    sc query luafv
    notepad \junk.txt
     
     
    Open an Elevated Command Prompt:
    Win 7: Start, All Programs, Accessories then right click on Command Prompt and Run as Administrator
     
    Right click and Paste (or Edit then Paste) and the copied lines should appear.
    Hit Enter if notepad does not open.  Copy and paste the text from notepad into a reply. 
     
    Start up FRST as before.  
    Put
    luafv.sys
    in the Search Box
    then hit Search Files
     
    You should get a text file.  Copy and paste in to a reply.

    Copy the next 5 lines:

    Open an Elevated Command Prompt:
     
     
     
    Right click and Paste (or Edit then Paste) and the copied lines should appear.
    Hit Enter.
     
    Then reboot.  Run VEW again as before.
     
    I'm on my way out the door.  Be back in about 4 hours.
     
    You can run Windows All in One Repair.  It might fix the BITS problem.
     
     
     
    Download it and save it then run it.
     
    You can skip to step 4 or 5 where it gives you the same picture as in the above link.
     
    Make sure these are checked before hitting Start:
     
    Reset Registry Permissions
    Reset File Permissions
    Register System Files
    Repair WMI
     
     
     
    Remove Policies Set By Infections
     
     
    Remove Temp Files
     
    Unhide Non System Files
    Repair Windows Updates
     
     
    Reboot when done and run VEW again as before.
     
    The luafv.sys file appears to be the correct one.  Not sure why it won't work.  Perhaps things will work better after all in one runs.
