Hello dannie, welcome to MWR
Please take note of the following before we begin the cleaning process:
  • The whole process will often take several days to complete, so please stay patient
  • Hang in there until I give you the 'All clean'. If you leave prematurely because your computer seems to be back to its old self, the risk of re-infection will be very high
  • Perform all actions in the order given
  • The instructions I give expect that you're using an account with administrator privileges and that the language of your operating system is English.
  • Dont be afraid to ask questions if something is unclear
  • I recommend you read through each set of instructions before you actually perform them

The guidelines for posting your HiJackThis log states that you are not supposed to use HJT to fix entries on your own. Most of the listed entries are not related to malware and if you should accidently fix legitimate entries your computer might start to behave unexpectedly. You might have done this before you got here and read that thread, but either way we need to restore the fixed HJT entries before doing anything else.

1) Restore HJT entries
  • Launch HiJackThis
  • Click the View the list of backups button
  • Select everything on the list and click the restore button.
  • Click OK at the prompt and then restart your computer.

Your malware problems may worsen after this, but its needed in order to complete a proper removal procedure.

2) Create an uninstall list
  • Launch Hijackthis
  • Click the Open the Misc Tools section button
  • Click the Open Uninstall Manager button.
  • Click the Save list button.
  • Include this log in your next reply

Note:
Judging by the previous HJT logs you posted, it seems that you close HJT before it has finished scanning.
When completing the next step do not close HJT before the log has opened, if you do, the log wont be complete.

3) Get a new HiJackThis log
  • Launch Hijackthis
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button
  • HJT will run a scan and a log should open in Notepad
  • Include this log in your next reply

Could you please describe your malware problems?
Why do you suspect you have a virus?

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.
