Apparently, I've ran into some sort of malware that does not allow me to use dds.scr (cuts process 1second after initiation) or RootRepeal.exe (cuts process during scan), therefore I cannot provide necessary logs.

Aside from that, it locks me from using RootRepeal again saying...
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

Other symptoms I've noticed are...
  • random redirects from search engine links
  • windows loading error while logging into account from a shut down (forcing an automatic restart)
  • process cuts & permission locks from several applications, one such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
Any help on getting rid of this annoying malware infection would be well appreciated :thumbsup:

See if this will work for you

1. Download Win32kDiag from any of the following locations and save it to your Desktop



2. Double-click Win32kDiag.exe to run Win32kDiag and let it finish.
3. When it states "Finished! Press any key to exit...", press any key on your keyboard to close the program.
4. Double-click on the Win32kDiag.txt file that is located on your Desktop and post the entire contents of that log as a reply to this topic.

Actually... I went ahead, back-up my files, & bought a new PC. The one I was using was rather old.

:thumbsup: Props on the fast help response though. I'll be sure to keep those in mind for any future occasion in which I'll encounter a similar infection.
