Hello matt00764 :) ,

Sorry for the delay.

I see that you have PunkBuster installed on your system. PunkBuster is a gaming tool that uses spyware techniques and can take over your computer. It is not likely that your computer could be cleaned without breaking or removing it, and this would result in not being able to play the associated games or worse.

Since PunkBuster is malware/spyware by our definition, you will need to choose one of the following:
1. Leave PunkBuster alone and continue cleaning malware, but understand that there is no assurance you will be able to do games afterwards.
2. Remove PunkBuster and continue cleaning.
3. Leave PunkBuster alone and stop cleaning.
See here for more information.

If you choose to uninstall PunkBuster
  • Please download the PBSVC setup program and save it to your desktop. Click here.
  • Double click on pbsvc.exe and click Uninstall.
  • Open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\windows\system32\drivers.
  • Find files with PnkBstr in the name and delete them.
  • Repeat delete files step in folder C:\windows\system32.

Remove P2P software
  • IMPORTANT: I notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

    BitTorrent DNA

  • Please read the Guidelines for P2P Programs where we explain why it's not a good idea to have them.
  • Even if you are using a "safe" P2P program, it is only the program that is safe. You will be sharing files from uncertified sources, and these are often infected. The bad guys use P2P filesharing as a major conduit to spread their wares.
  • Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the P2P program(s) listed above (in red).
  • Please remove them before we continue with fixing your computer.

Do your GameGuard have an Antivirus?

Please post back:
1. your decision regarding PunkBuster
2. information of Antivirus in GameGuard
3. new HijackThis log
4. new Uninstall list

Hello matt00764 :),

It has been 3 days since my last post. Do you still need help? Any problems following my instructions? Need more time?

If I do not get any response within the next 24 hours, this topic will be closed.

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.
