I ran the EMSI scan in safe mode twice, both times my computer turned off, somewhere in the middle of step 4, in the Windows folders.. it had already found the ctfmon file, as expected, but nothing else.. I moved and renamed the cftmon file manually, so I'm back on the machine, but I know the REAL file is still lurking out there, somewhere..

a big thanks to everyone who is sharing their knowledge here..

Hello and welcome to BC!

Pleas download and install Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. When you started the program chek for updates and run a quick scan. Post the logfile in your next reply. Include also your EMSI Scan logfile in the next reply.

In your next reply I want this logfiles:
  • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • EMSI Scan
I wait for your reply.

thank you, Quote.. here's the log to the EMSI.. I re-ran it.. not the total complete scan, the one before that.. still took an hour and a half, found nothing:

Emsisoft Emergency Kit - Version 2.0
Last update: 10/18/2012 10:59:00 AM

Scan settings:

Scan type: Smart Scan
Objects: Rootkits, Memory, Traces, C:\Windows\, C:\Program Files\
Scan archives: Off
ADS Scan: On

Scan start: 10/18/2012 01:46:58 PM

Scanned 588223
Found 0

Scan end: 10/18/2012 02:56:21 PM
Scan time: 1:09:23

then I ran the Malwarebyte app.. it found another ctfmon file, in another Temp folder, also with a problem.. and another issue, but I'm guessing that it is not related:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
