As always, any help appreciated.

I'll try to run the same thing on his account. This was run on the admin account of the same PC.

Hello quirkasaurus

I notice the software on the computer, for example Windows, is well out of date. Also MRU has moved on to using DDS as an initial triage tool. Can you please read >this topic< and post the relevant logs.

Thanks
Vino

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.
