ORLIN87,
You have an unpatched Windows system. Is there any reason there are no updates?
------------------------------------------------
Download and Run Rkill
Please download Rkill from one of the following links and save to your Desktop:
One, Two,Three or Four
  • Double click on Rkill.
  • A command window will open then disappear upon completion, this is normal.
  • Please leave Rkill on the Desktop until otherwise advised.
Note: If your security software warns about Rkill, please ignore and allow the download to continue.
If you cannot get Rkill to run without being stopped, don't proceed further, and post back to tell me about it.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download a free AntiVirus Program
Download this free anti-virus program, update it and run a full scan. Have it fix anything it finds.
Consider this an Emergency until you complete it!------------------------------------------------------------
Please download GMER Rootkit Scanner from Here.
  • Double click the .exe file. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
    See image below
    Image
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and post it in your next reply
**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

Note: Do not run any programs while Gmer is running.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Run a Diagnostic Tool (MGADiag.exe) from here and save this to your desktop.
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=56062
* Double-click on MGADiag.exe
* When the program has finished, click on the Validation tab and then click on Copy to Clipboard.
* Please post the results in your next reply.

So we are looking for the results from the MGADiag tool, and the log from the Gmer scanner. Use separate posts if you wish.
Let me know of the Windows updates, and anything else interesting that happens.

Due to a 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.
