Hi. I've been having problems with my PC for over a month now. I'm out of ideas. Between it running slow as well as going to other sites which tell me I have a virus and my computer needs to be scanned when I click on a link that i know is ligit.
I've tried Malwarebytes, AVG Free, Spybot Search & Destroy & Ad-Aware as well as some manual processes which were all unsucessful. The programs picked up various things which said were cleaned up, but I'm still having issues. I'm a college student so use of my computer is crucial! I am completely and totally out of ideas and think I am in way over my head at this point. I'm desperate for some help.

Hi MeaganB, and :thumbsup: to BleepingComputer!

We need to check for rootkits with RootRepeal
  • Download RootRepeal from the following location and save it to your desktop.
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the archive.
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Click the Posted Image tab.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Check all seven boxes: Posted Image
  • Push Ok
  • Check the box for your main system drive (Usually C:), and press Ok.
  • Allow RootRepeal to run a scan of your system. This may take some time.
  • Once the scan completes, push the Posted Image button. Save the log to your desktop, using a distinctive name, such as RootRepeal.txt. Include this report in your next reply, please.

regards, Elise
