I dubbed this the "Crazy Virus", because I have very similar results to "Joeyfixit's" post HERE.

No internet connectivity, even in safe mode w/networking as Administrator.

Initially, could not install Malware Bytes (wouldn't appear to do anything, but would list in the task manager processes). Did the rename on the set-up file and it started to install. There would be a LONG hang on the finish, then pop up and ask to update and run. If I said OK, it would hang again. I said no, renamed and tried to run manually and nothing.

Tried SAS, get an error message says it has to close.

Tried SBSD, can't connect to internet to finish setup/install.

Followed other thread and deleted host file, but nothing changed.

Now that your log is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Good luck with your log.
