Before we continue, I just want to confirm something about MalwareBytes' AntiMalware. I heard it causes WinSock damage. Is this true? And what is WinSock?

In computing, the Windows Sockets API, which was later shortened to Winsock, is a technical specification that defines how Windows network software should access network services.
I personally have not heard anything regarding winsock damage. :)

I will await the scans. Is that all of the malwarebytes scan just looks as though it's been cut short. :)

That's odd... I rechecked the log. That's all of it. I also did a quick google check of other MalwareByte logs. They're all about the same size as the above.

By the way, I'm pretty busy today.

Hi dan12,

Unfortunately, my computer started to malfunction. There was a missing file in the OS. I really don't know how that happened. Anyways, I just re-imaged the Hard Drive. Sorry, but I should've took note of the file. However, I really would like to thank you for the time spent, and effort to help me. I really do appreciate it.

Thanks,

Taha
