Hello there,

Spybot S&D says the computer is clean, Avast breaks down sometimes (saying the computer should not be run with such unidentified malware active) and finds a clean computer at other times.

Please find below the log from HJT.

Could someone tell me if my computer is infected? Any hjelp is welcome.

Thank you in advance

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.

Hello,

Thank you for taking some time to help me out and no worries for the delay, I understand how busy a person can be.

I have done nothing special to solve the issue other than posting this post here and hope for someone to help me check whether there's a malware or not.

Below the output from the program you requested that I run.

Thanks in advance
