Hello all,

In a nutshell, my computer is running hella slow and I cannot access one of my hard drives. I just recently ran a virus scan with AVG 7.5 and am using Comodo Firewall and even though it says everything is fine, its not.

Where it started
- About two months ago, I opened the music folder on my hard drive (Z:) and noticed my files from D-Z were nowhere to be found. The weird part was when I opened iTunes, I was able to play all of those files no problem and when I right click on a song and picked 'Get Info', the 'Where' path referenced the Z drive and music folder like it was there no problems. Later that month, I go to My Computer to see if the files are there. For one, it took my computer about 5 minutes to bring up all of the icons. When it finally displayed all of my drives, I noticed Z drive didn't show any remaining space. I try to open the Z drive and Windows gives me an error message saying the disc is not formatted; would I like to format now? I closed the box and immediately ran scans with AVG, Comodo, and Kapersky online scan. They cleared a lot of malware yet when I click My Computer it still is very slow to display all of my drives and of course, I can't access the Z drive.

Just before posting this, I just went through and checked all of my running programs and found these:

ctfmon.exe
llsass.exe
services.exe
spoolsv.exe
wdfmgr.exe
winlogon.exe
wuauclt.exe

I don't know what more to do. I don't want to start over and wipe my system clean because if there is a slight chance of recovering my Z drive, I'll do whatever it takes. I don't want to risk losing my whole music library. And the PC running slow isn't any good either. Please please please any help would be appreciated.

Okay, ignoring my rant about the music files and missing hard drive, aren't some of those .exe programs I listec above bad? I understand that some of them are good (when I tried to close some of them through the task manager, Windows wouldn't allow it, says they are critical processes). Is there anything I can do about these?

It would depend on their path ,if they are not in their proper location they would be malware.

Now that we have some information let's start with a scan.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: 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. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

On top of this, I am getting this weird pop-up boxes for 'Windows Installer' and 'ItsDeductible Express' that tries installing some files on its own. It appears everytime I've restarted my PC and anytime I open a Microsoft application (Word, Internet Explorer, etc.) I did have Turbo Tax 2007 installed but recently removed it hoping it would stop. What's next?

'ItsDeductible Express' is a program by Intuit. Obviously from tax season.
The names of program executable files are ItsDeductible10.exe, ItsDeductible9.exe and ItsDeductibleEX.exe

Have you looked in control panel for this or another Intuit app. Perhaps unistalling them from there will eliminate the pop up.

Good call. I have yet to see the pop-up.

Back to the sluggish PC, is there any thing else I can try?
