Hello jlp007,

Welcome to the forum! :)

I am pgmigg and I'll be helping you with any malware problems.

Before we begin, please read and follow these important guidelines, so things will proceed smoothly.
  1. The instructions being given are for YOUR computer and system only!
    Using these instructions on a different computer can cause damage to that computer and possibly render it inoperable!
  2. You must have Administrator rights, permissions for this computer.
  3. DO NOT run any other fix or removal tools unless instructed to do so!
  4. DO NOT install any other software (or hardware) during the cleaning process until we are done as well as
    DO NOT Remove, or Scan with anything on your system unless I ask. This adds more items to be researched.
    Extra Additions and Removals of files make the analysis more difficult.
  5. Only post your problem at (1) one help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  6. Print each set of instructions if possible - your Internet connection will not be available during some fix processes.
  7. 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.
  8. Only reply to this thread, do not start another one. Please, continue responding, until I give you the "All Clean!" :cheers:
    Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

I am currently reviewing your logs and will return, as soon as possible, with additional instructions. In the meantime...

Note: If you haven't done so already, please read this topic ALL USERS OF THIS FORUM MUST READ THIS FIRST where the conditions for receiving help here are explained.

Please read all instructions carefully before executing and perform the steps, in the order given.
lf you have any questions or problems executing these instructions, <<STOP>> do not proceed, post back with the question or problem.

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

Hi pgmigg,

I had a very close friend of mine (I knew him for 32 years) die on 10/9/17, in his will I inherited his entire wine collection. Unfortunately, the 2 people who stayed with him before he died took a lot of his wines and were selling them online. A short time ago, we found proof that they had taken a lot of these wines & I was looking into it, and verifying what I had suspected all along. About 1 week ago I went into my computer to find some info on these people that I pulled up online about them, which I had previously saved this info on my computer, but when I looked for it I saw that it was all deleted off of my computer when I looked into my file history, and I never deleted it myself. And when I saw the deleted items on my computer I went into my remote access area on my laptop and the box was checked to allow remote access! I unchecked the box, hit apply & ok, then I rebooted my computer. But I think they've already put software on my computer to gain access remotely wherever they are... Also this morning I went into my computer to pull up my word document that I had created last night with proof on it against them, & it's gone! I believe that they have hacked into my computer and are watching everything I do on it, and they have taken over control on the administrator controls as well. I hope I am wrong, but after seeing the things they've deleted, which I never deleted, I know I am right! That's why it's super important that I get them off my computer as soon as possible. The laptop I am on right now was left at my friends house prior to his death too!

THEN: The next answer to your questions are that my laptop is NOT connected to any other business or educational website for any reason. It is my home laptop, used for personal purposes only!

So PLEASE, help me! This is the most horrific experience I've ever encountered in my life! Not only is my best friend dead, but these people are terrorizing me on every level they can to make me give up and just let them get away with everything they've stolen from him, unscathed! In my best friends will it said that "I give to the following persons specific gifts as follows, each person named as a beneficiary are important to me, & my gifts to each is intended to communicate my appreciation for our mutual friendship. With that said, please note as follows:" He then named me as the sole heir to his wine collection. He also scripted out others and what they were supposed to receive. But in the end, these 2 people who lived with him at the end of his life took everything that had a high dollar amount. So again, I beg of you to help me find out what is going on here and help me clear off what they have on my computer so I can fulfill my dear friends wish of giving the people he cared about what is rightfully theirs! I have to prove what they've stolen & stop these evil ones from taking everything dear to him in the end! Sorry if I went into too much detail above, but you asked me why I suspected that someone had hacked my computer... The above is why, I know that it's sad, but it's totally true!

All my love to you from the bottom of my heart for anything you can do to help me on this! As I don't have the money to take it down to a computer repair person to fix it, as I have taken the past 3 months off work to help get his house cleared out and I am so short on funds & I don't have enough to do it on my own right now.

Bless you and I am so thankful for your site and your help on this... I will now do everything you've asked me to do above beyond my explanation here!

Answer to my question related to type of using of your computer

My Answers to the above questions:

I want to post here how my file extensions have changed too, so here's a screen shot of what they look like now where there is a program called "3D Objects" which I never installed. And there are 3 "Desktop" icons now & a "Homegroup" Icon which I never installed either, along with a "Bluetooth" connection link?? It wouldn't let me paste my screen shots, so I uploaded it to you to reflect the file path's that have never been there before! Please don't publish them on this site, if you can help it.. But if I could send you my phone # to do this via phone, I would be happy to do that!!

Sincerely,
jlp007

Hi MY FRIEND!

Here is another screen shot with my Menu Bar at the bottom showing an Icon with "2 People" listed now, and when I put my mouse over it "People" populated, this Icon wasn't there before all this craziness started for me... See what you think??

Love you,

Hello jlp007,

Platform: Windows 10 Home Version 1709 16299.192 (X64)
Once between mid-September 2017 and the present tense your computer was automatically upgraded to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (build 1709) which significantly changed a lot in Windows infrastructure.

jlp007 wrote:I want to post here how my file extensions have changed too, so here's a screen shot of what they look like now where there is a program called "3D Objects" which I never installed. And there are 3 "Desktop" icons now & a "Homegroup" Icon which I never installed either, along with a "Bluetooth" connection link??

jlp007 wrote:Here's another screen shot where on the bottom of my screen it shows an icon next to the "Address bar menu" and then the "BLUE ?" about 3/4 of the way through the bottom of my menu bar there is an icon with "2 people" where I put my mouse over it and it says "PEOPLE" over the icon, and this icon was never there before all this started happening ...


You might be wondering what the 3D Object folder in File Explorer is for. The folder contains 3D items that you can use in apps like Paint 3D or Mixed Reality Viewer. Projects you work on in the 3D apps will be saved in the 3D Objects folder by default. When folders are sorted alphabetically it’s the first folder in the list.

The same may be said about People icon, about Bluetooth connection link, about Homegroup icon, and many many other new items from newest incarnation of Windows 10.

There are not any intruders who have infiltrated your computer and install something without your knowledge - it's all done by Microsoft with its latest system updates.
By the way, I strongly recommend you to change the password for the login to the system.

Well, let start our treatment:

Step 1.
Users List
  1. Please type notepad.exe in the Search Windows box and click Enter - a blank Notepad page should open.
    • Copy and Paste the following script into Notepad, but do not include the words Code: Select all.
    • (Click the Select all button next to Code: to select the entire script).
    Code: Select all
    @echo off
    "net user" >> "%userprofile%\Desktop\AllUsers.txt"
    
  2. Save it as userlist.bat (select "All Files (*.*) for Save as type:) on the Desktop and run it by double-click on saved file icon. In a short time the file AllUsers.txt will be created on your Desktop.
  3. Please navigate to your Desktop where you should find AllUsers.txt. Double-click on it and it will be opened in Notepad. Copy and paste the contents in your reply...

Step 2.
Create a Backup With Tweaking.com Registry Backup (TCRB)
There is also a tutorial with pictures available HERE.
  1. Please download TCRB from HERE and save it to your Desktop.
  2. Double-click on tweaking.com_registry_backup_setup.exe and follow the prompts to install TCRB.
  3. Launch TCRB.
  4. Click the Backup Registry tab and make sure all the boxes are checked.
  5. Click on Backup Now.
  6. Once the backup is finished you can now exit the program.
< STOP > Do not proceed any further if you were not able to create a registry backup. Post back with what happened so we can determine why it was unsuccessful.

Step 3.
FRST Fix
  1. Close all your programs.
  2. You should still have FRST64.exe on your Desktop. If not please download it HERE and save it on your Desktop.
  3. Please press the Windows Key + R.
  4. Type notepad.exe into the text box and click OK.
  5. A blank Notepad page should open.
    • Copy and Paste the following script into Notepad, but do not include the words Code: Select all.
    • (Click the Select all button next to Code: to select the entire script).
    Code: Select all

  8. Press the Fix button one time only and wait.
  9. When FRST finishes you will be prompted to reboot your computer. Click OK.
  10. Your computer should now restart. On reboot navigate to your Desktop where you should find Fixlog.txt. Copy and paste the contents in your reply.

Step 4.
AdwCleaner - Scan Only
  1. Please download AdwCleaner (today it is a version 7.0.3.1) and save it to your Desktop.
  2. Close all open programs and windows so that you are at your Desktop.
  3. Right click on adwcleaner.exee and click Run as administrator...
  4. Click on the Scan button.
  5. When the scan finishes, you'll see a message in the AdwCleaner window: "Waiting for action. Please uncheck elements you want to keep." Do not attempt to clean anything at this point!
  6. Click on Logfile button. The Log manager window will be opened.
  7. Double-click on a log file C:\...\AdwCleaner[S0].txt to open it. Copy and paste the contents of that log file in your reply.

Please post each log separately to prevent it being cut off by the forum post size limiter.
Check each after you've posted it to make sure it's all present, if any log is cut off you'll have to post it in sections...

Don't post anything as attachments unless I will ask you about it specifically!

Please include in your next reply:
  1. Do you have any problems executing the instructions?
  2. Contents of AllUsers.txt log file
  3. Contents of the fixlog.txt log file
  4. Contents of the AdwCleaner[Sn].txt log file
  5. Do you see any changes in computer behavior?

Thanks,

Dear Pgmigg,

Thank you for your patience by waiting for me to get all this done yesterday! I had to deal with a few other issues yesterday, so it took me a while to get all this done.

I appreciate all your help and I will be waiting to hear back from you with our next step to conquer!

You're the best and I thank you again for all your direction and help on this issue...

Sincerely,

You are welcome jlp007,

Actually you a had a lot of temporary files (1.9 GB), the presence and storage of which greatly slows down the computer.

Now please do the following:

Step 1.
TDSSKiller - Rootkit Removal Tool
Please download the TDSSKiller.exe by Kaspersky... save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
  1. Right-click on TDSSKiller.exe and select "Run As Administrator...".
    If TDSSKiller does not run... rename it. Right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. ektfhtw.com).
    If you don't see file extensions, please see: How to change the file extension.
  2. Click on Accept button for End User License Agreement.
  3. Click on Decline button for KSN Statement.
  4. Click Change parameters
  5. Under Additional Options CHECK Verify file digital signatures
  6. IMPORTANT: Ensure Detect TDLFS file system remains UNCHECKED.
  7. Click OK if changes were made.
  8. Click Start scan and allow it to scan for Malicious objects. Do not use the computer during the scan!
    • If Malicious objects are detected, the default action will be Cure, ensure SKIP is selected... then click Continue
    • If Suspicious objects are detected, the default action will be Skip, ensure Skip is selected... then click Continue
    • If Unsigned files are detected, the default action will be Skip, ensure Skip is selected... then click Continue
    DO NOT change the default actions, other than CURE to SKIP.
  9. You may be asked to reboot the computer to complete the process. Click on Reboot Now and allow the computer to reboot.
  10. A log will be created on your root drive (usually C:) drive. The log will have a name like Name.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.
    for example, C:\TDSSKiller.2.4.1.2_20.04.2010_15.31.43_log.txt. Please post the contents of the log file in your next reply
  11. If no reboot is required, click on Report. A Report log window should appear - please copy/paste the contents of it in your next reply

Step 2.
ESET Online Scanner
  1. Please close all open programs and windows.
  2. Please go HERE then click on Scan now and save esetonlinescanner_enu.exe on your Desktop.
  3. Double-click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to run it.
  4. Select the option Accept for the Terms of Use and then follow the prompt.
  5. On the next screen please check Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications.
  6. Then click on Advanced Settings and select the following:
    • Enable detection of potentially unsafe applications
    • Enabled detection of suspicion applications
    • Scan archives
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  7. Make sure that the option Clean threats automatically is NOT checked, as well as Use custom proxy settings.
  8. Now click on Scan button.
  9. The Downloading virus signature database... will begin to download. Be patient this make take some time depending on the speed of your Internet Connection.
  10. Do not touch either the Mouse or Êeyboard during the scan otherwise it may stall.
  11. When completed you will be presented with a list of found threats ....
    • Click on the List of found threats link
    • Click on Export to text file
    • Save as ESET.txt to your Desktop
  12. Exit out of ESET Online Scanner.

Please post each log separately to prevent it being cut off by the forum post size limiter.
Check each after you've posted it to make sure it's all present, if any log is cut off you'll have to post it in sections....

Please include in your next reply:
  1. Do you have any problems executing the instructions?
  2. Contents of the TDSSKiller_version_dd.mm.yyyy_hh.mm.ss_log.txt log file or the contents of the Report log window
  3. Contents of the ESET.txt log file

Thanks,
pgmigg
