Hi and welcome to the MR forums. :)

I'm melboy and I am going to try to help you with your problem. Please take note of the following:

  1. I will be working on your Malware issues this may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
  2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
  4. Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer (Install/Uninstall programs, delete files, edit the registry, etc...)
  5. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans whilst I am helping you.
  6. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
  7. DO NOT attach logs unless requested to. Please copy/paste all requested logs into your replies.
  8. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
  9. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

NOTE: Please take time to read the Malware Removal Forum Guidelines and Rules where the conditions for receiving help at this forum are explained.

IMPORTANT: Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.

Thank you Melboy, I can already see improvement. I keep getting a message saying that Adobe Flash Player 11.7 r700 has stopped working. Also, when I open a new tab in Firefox, it opens to:

Let me know how things are running after deleting with AdwCleaner and let me know if there are any outstanding issues.


  • Right click AdwCleaner.exe & choose "Run as Administrator" to run it.
  • Click Delete.
  • Click OK to the prompt.
  • The tool will run & your computer will be rebooted automatically. A logfile will open after the restart.
  • Post the contents of the logfile with your next reply.
  • You can also find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[s1].txt.

It is definitely doing better, but I still have a couple of problems. I periodically get a warning dialog box that says

"Warning: Unresponsive plugin"

"Shockwave Flash may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin now, or you can continue to see if the plugin will complete."

Also, whenever I open a new tab in Firefox it opens to a sweetpacks page:


which usually has a malware type warning dialog on it. I cannot find where to set the page that a new tab opens to.

Thanks for your help,

Sorry, I didn't read closely enough! I did not go back and delete. I have now, and the new tabs are now blank. I will let you know how it goes with the "Flash" warning.

Post the AdwCleaner log for me to see.

For the flash problem there's information here that may help. I don't think that issue is malware related in any way.

Would you recommend that I update Flash now? I didn't want to make any changes without your direction before you tell me that you are finished helping me.

Thank you again for your help.

Yes, update Flash.


Uncheck any unnecessary extras that may be offered (Mcafee Security Scan, Google Toolbar etc), before downloading.

Let me know how things are running.

Hi melboy,

I am still trying to evaluate the performance. I inherited this laptop and am trying to see what I need to do to make it right. We re basically using it as a kitchen PC that is basically used for nothing other than the internet. I am still getting periods where it freezes for as long as a minute. I appreciate what you have done for me, and I know that there is a time pressure, but I would really like either a little more time to evaluate before closing, or if you can think of any way to find the reason for the lockups that would be great.

Hi Jim

We'll continue to see if there's anything amiss.


Download OTL by Old Timer and save it to your Desktop.

  • Double click on OTL.exe to run it.
  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When done, two Notepad files will open.
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extras.txt <-- Will be minimized
  • Please post the contents of these 2 Notepad files in your next reply.

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.
