Hello asampat2 :smile:



Let´s scan your computer, and see what infections you have ->



Download: CCleaner
https://www.ccleaner.com/

Once installed, run CCleaner click the Windows tab
Select the following:
Internet Explorer:
Temp Internet
History
Recently Typed URLs
Delete Index.dat files



System:
Empty Recycle Bin
Temporary Files
Memory Dumps
Chkdsk File Fragments
Old Prefetch Data




Next: click Options click the Settings tab

Uncheck: "Only delete files older than 48 hrs.", click Ok

Then click Run Cleaner (bottom right) then Exit



Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware:
https://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

to your desktop.



Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.

At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.

If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.

Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.

When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location.



If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

to

Save HJTinstall.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTinstall.exe icon on your desktop.

By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Hijack This.

Click I accept

Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.

Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.

Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.

Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.



DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet.

Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
