Hi chasone64,

Welcome to the MalWare Removal forums! I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.
HijackThis logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me. I know that you need
your computer working as quickly as possible, and I will work hard to help see that happens.

In order to help me help you, please observe the following while we work:
  1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't continue, we don't want to start all over again!
  2. Understand that cleaning your computer can sometimes take multiple passes/posts,
    and it's important to follow the steps as listed including re-running scans as listed
  3. Please reply to this thread, do not start another.


If you can do those three things, everything should go smoothly
---------------------------------------------------

Please do the following:

Note* If, after posting your reply, the last line is not < End of Report > then the log is too long to fit into a single reply post and you will need to split it into separate reply posts.

Download WinPFind3U.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files.
It will create a folder named WinPFind3u on your desktop.
  • Close ALL OTHER PROGRAMS.
  • Open the WinPFind3u folder and double-click on WinPFind3U.exe to start the program.
  • Change settings Under Files/Folders Created Within-----
    • Click on 60 days
  • Change settings Under Files/Folders Modified Within-----
    • Click on 60 days
  • Next on the right side of screen Under Additional Scans
    • Put a checkmark in the box next to Reg-Disabled MS Config items
    • Put a checkmark in the box next to Reg-Uninstall List
    • Put a checkmark in the box next to File-Additional Folder Scan
  • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  • The program will be scanning huge amounts of data so depending on your system it could take a long time to complete. Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
  • Use the Add Reply button and Copy/Paste the information back here.

Note* If, after posting your reply, the last line is not < End of Report > then the log is too long to fit into a single post and you will need to split it into separate reply post.

Hello chasone64,

I do not understand do you mean your are no longer having any problems and do not need any help?

HiJackThis is a tool that shows legit and bad if you are not trained in reading HJT logs you can remove things that will cause your computer to no longer run correctly or run at all.

Let me know if you are still needing help.

Hi chasone64,

I will check in to that.

Please do the following:

Sometimes malware will hide from HiJackThis so we rename it.

Here's what I need you to do:
Get to C:\Program Files\Hijackthis\Hijackthis.exe
  1. Click on Start button
  2. Click on "My Computer" .
  3. Double click on the C: drive to open.
  4. Double click on "Program Files" Folder to open.
  5. Double click on "HijackThis" Folder to open.
Rename HijackThis.exe
  1. Right click on the HijackThis icon.
    Image
  2. Select Rename.
    Image
  3. Now type the following scanner.exe <<< NOTE: make sure to put period before exe when typing.
    Hit the enter key on keyboard.
    Image

You may want to create a shortcut on your desktop for easy use here.
  • Right click on the newly named icon Scanner.exe and choose Send To...
  • Click on Desktop(create shortcut)
  • Done.

Close all open windows and double click on Scanner.exe icon that you put on your desktop to run.
Click on Do a system scan and save a logfile. Post log in next reply.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
