Hello
Last night while searching on yahoo search engine, all of a sudden I could not get any programs (exe) to run. I rebooted. I could do little to nothing. Task manager would not run. Nothing else would run. I reboot in to safe mode. I notice an icon on my desctop I am not familiar with. It was a virus scanning program... sorry don't remember the name. I did a properties on it and found defender.exe I find the file and delete it. Then I could run computer and I googled defender.exe and found that I should delete some registry entries and I did. I did not find anything else it said to look for. Then I ran Malewarebytes and it found 1 trojan horse file and quarantined it.

Everything seems back to normal until today I go to print and it says I need to install a printer!! what??!!! I look and NO INSTALLED PRINTERS! come on!!! So I figure out that now my print spooler is not running and when I start it in services it shuts back off and I can not install a printer.

I also have an error message on startup that says error loading \3\LXCFtime.dll Module not found. Today I update Malewarebytes and it found 14 more infections and quarantined them and I still get the first error message plus this one: And also error loading C:\windows\msespn.dll
Can you help me?
This is the log file Malewarebytes created today:

Thanks... No offense... but your reply looks canned. Are you wanting me to download and run that program after doing all I have done? If yes... I will do it. I need to be able to get the spooler up and running so I can print tomorrow. Why would all my printers disappear?

I uninstalled the Lexmark printer and I have no more error messages at startup. That is good. I still have no print spooler. I have tried everything I can find on the internet connected with the print spooler. Does defender.exe mess that up? I did run combofix once. Could that have messed this up?

You shouldn't be running Combofix on your own.

OK... All seems to be fixed now.
I searched the internet about the printer spool issue and downloaded a file from microsoft.com called Cleanspl.exe which cleans up the print spooler but it did not help. Yesterday besides running mbam, I thought I had run combofix but I had not. Last ditch effort this morning after hpbdfawep.exe was all of a sudden using 50% of my cpu, I ran combofix again... or so I thought. As it progressed and installed the recovery console I realized that it did not run yesterday. I let it do its thing and now I can install a printer so all seems to be back to normal. Thanks for the help that would have been offered.

Sorry I went to run combofix on my own. I am very thankful for that program and for those that wrote it.
