Hi infinitive 1,
Your computer has installed gaming tools. Some of these, like Punkbuster, use spyware techniques to engage in the anti-piracy battle.
In the process, they take control of much of your PC, and they meet the definition of spyware/malware.
They are sometimes designed to prevent orderly removal or modification.
It is not likely that your computer could be cleaned without breaking or removing some of these programs, and this would result in not being able to play the associated games, or worse.
Since we are dedicated to causing No Harm, we won't normally work on machines with this type of program installed.
If you want to continue using the machine in this way, you should consider using imaging software like Norton Ghost or Acronis, which can put your entire C: drive back into an earlier state whenever the infections or malfunctions get too severe.

If you really want to clean this machine, I will help, but if you so choose, understand there is NO assurance you will be able to do games afterwards.

Let me know your pleasure.

Due to Lack of Response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
