I got a call from my brother-in-law on Saturday after Christmas to see if I could help him fix a bug on his laptop.
His McAfee antivirus didn't pick it up and isn't running, it looks like it attempts to start now after working with Malwarebtye's
where I got a link for internal removal tool. I'm down to one rootkit that keeps popping up after reboot, even though it says it's
quarantined and removed. See Attached LOG. I was told by tech to run combofix so I copied it to my flashdrive
on a non infected computer and tried to install it on this laptop. I thought I was going crazy as I couldn't find it on the flashdrive.
I went back to my other system, copied combofix.exe as scramble.exe and attempted to install again. I watched it being removed before i
could install it. I went back and copied it as pong.exe onto flashdrive and also into a 2nd directory as pong.exe. When I installed
it into this laptop It was removed I could click on it, and I watched it being removed from 2nd directory. So I came to you guys/gals
for some help.

Note I have system restore turned off. I can't find the Key in Local_Machine it keep removing either.

I've attached Malwarebytes and HJT Logs.

I'll be reading some of the other post to look for clues.

Thank You
Steve

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.
