Hey, thanks for the help. Recently while watching It's Always Sunny on Philadelphia on MegaVideo (I know, bad idea, but the show is addicting) an error sign popped up and then my computer shutdown "in order to protect" itself. Not sure if that was spyware. When the background came back up the wallpaper changed to the "Your computer is infected...) One of the taskbar items, a red balloon with an X in the middle, popped up saying that windows was going to install some special programs to remove the threat. I never clicked on it. When I ran malwarebytes and avg the green screen went away and everything seemed normal for a bit, but google searches were hijacked to random websites. I then ran super-antispyware and TFC. When I rebooted, I tried booting up in safemode but the computer crashed. Thanks for any help.

hello, please post you infected MBAM scan log//
Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.


SAS did not run in safe mode? Will it run in normal?
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Safe mode crashes. SAS runs fine in normal mode. After running MBAM, I don't think it found anything, but the problems are still there. Here's the log.

Hello, I take it SAS found nothing. You were able to acccess Safe mode though?

Since you still have an issue please do an online scan.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan

    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
