    ComboFix not supporting Windows 8.1?

    You're correct and Combofix i rarely used anymore. I replied in your other topic. I'll take a look what's going on there.

    can I delete /appdata/local/temp directory?

    Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop. Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version. Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer. Press Scan button. It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply. The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please copy and paste it to your reply.

    Good 🙂 Download RogueKiller from one of the following links and save it to your Desktop: Link 1 Link 2 Close all the running programs Double click on downloaded setup.exe file to install the program. Click on Start Scan button. Click on another Start Scan button. Wait until the Status box shows Scan Finished Click on Remove Selected. Wait until the Status box shows Deleting Finished. Click on Report and copy/paste the content of the Notepad into your next reply. RKreport.txt could also be found on your desktop. If more than one log is produced post all logs. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected. Restart your computer when prompted to do so. The Scan log is available throughout History ->Application logs. Please post it contents in your next reply. Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop. Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool. Vista/Windows 7/8/10 users right-click and select Run As Administrator The tool will start to update the database if one is required. Click on the Scan button. AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete. After the scan has finished, click on the Logfile button. A window will open which lists the logs of your scans. Click on the Scan tab. Double-click the most recent scan which will be at the top of the list....the log will appear. Review the results...see note below After reviewing the log, click on the Clean button. Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts. Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process. After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[CX].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of X represents the most recent report). To open a Cleaning log, launch AdwareClearer, click on the Logfile button, click on the Cleaning tab and double-click the log at the top of the list. Copy and paste the contents of AdwCleaner[CX].txt in your next reply. A copy of all logfiles are saved to C:\AdwCleaner. -- Note: The contents of the AdwCleaner log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name or entry that you recognize and know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, return to AdwCleaner before cleaning...all detected items will be listed (and checked) in each tab. Click on and uncheck any items you want to keep.
  5. Last scans... Download Security Check from here or here and save it to your Desktop. Double-click SecurityCheck.exe Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box. A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document. NOTE 1. If one of your security applications (e.g., third-party firewall) requests permission to allow DIG.EXE access the Internet, allow it to do so. NOTE 2. SecurityCheck may produce some false warning(s), so leave the results reading to me. NOTE 3. If you receive UNSUPPORTED OPERATING SYSTEM! ABORTED! message restart computer and Security Check should run Please download Farbar Service Scanner (FSS) and run it on the computer with the issue. Make sure the following options are checked: Internet Services Windows Firewall System Restore Security Center Windows Update Windows Defender Other Services Press "Scan".

  6. Today around 1PM PST my daughter Victoria gave birth to my first grandson! There are some complication since my daughter developed preeclampsia just before birth which resulted with baby's breathing problems and some fluid in his lungs but the doctors say they have it under control. I hope everything will be fine. Meanwhile couple of pictures 🙂

  8. I'm glad you're back to work 🙂 Good luck and stay safe 🙂
  9. Your computer is clean 1. This step will remove all cleaning tools we used, it'll reset restore points (so you won't get reinfected by accidentally using some older restore point) and it'll make some other minor adjustments... This is a very crucial step so make sure you don't skip it. Download DelFix by Xplode to your desktop. Delfix will delete all the used tools and logfiles. Double-click Delfix.exe to start the tool. Make sure the following items are checked: Activate UAC (optional; some users prefer to keep it off) Remove disinfection tools Create registry backup Purge System Restore Reset system settings Now click "Run" and wait patiently. Once finished a logfile will be created. You don't have to attach it to your next reply. 2. Make sure Windows Updates are current. 3. If any trojans, rootkits or bootkits were listed among your infection(s), make sure, you change all of your on-line important passwords (bank account(s), secured web sites, etc.) immediately! 4. Check if your browser plugins are up to date. Firefox - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ other browsers: https://browsercheck.qualys.com/ (click on "Scan without installing plugin" and then on "Scan now") 5. Run Malwarebytes "Quick scan" once in a while to assure safety of your computer. 6. Run Temporary File Cleaner (TFC) and AdwCleaner weekly (you need to redownload these tools since they were removed by DelFix). 7. (optional) If you want to keep all your programs up to date, download and install FileHippo Update Checker. The Update Checker will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to FileHippo.com to see if there are any newer releases. 8. When installing\updating ANY program, make sure you always select "Custom " installation, so you can UN-check any possible "drive-by-install" (foistware), like toolbars etc., which may try to install along with the legitimate program. Do NOT click "Next" button without looking at any given page. 9.

Please, let me know, how your computer is doing.
  10. Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop. NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work. NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system Run FRST(FRST64) and press the Fix button just once and wait. The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply. fixlist.txt
