Hello and Welcome -

I have never heard it called PC Speed Test virus, so I believe you may have a similar named problem.

Are you aware of where you caught this infection ??

 

First -

Download Security Check by Screen317 from HERE
* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If a security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

 

Next -

Please download MiniToolBox, Save it to your desktop and run it.
Close any Firefox browsers you may have open
Checkmark the following boxes:
•Flush DNS
•Report IE Proxy Settings
•Reset IE Proxy Settings
•Report FF Proxy Settings
•Reset FF Proxy Settings
•List content of Hosts
•List IP configuration
•List last 10 Event Viewer log
•List Installed Programs
•List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
•List Minidump Files

Click Go and copy / paste the result (Result.txt).

 

 

Next -

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

Make sure you check for Updates during the download

Run a Quick Scan and copy / paste the log that opens when finished back here.

 

Next -

Please download SUPERAntiSpyware Free

Make sure you check for Updates during the download

Run a Quick Scan only and copy / paste the log file back here -

 

From here we will see how bad the infection is -

 

Thank You -

This is for only once you finish all steps listed above -

 

Please download TFC, or Temp File Cleaner from BleepingComputer downloads
Usage Instructions:

  • Download TFC from the download link above and save the file on your desktop.
  • Close ALL running applications as TFC will terminate them before attempting to clean up the temporary files.
  • Double-click on the TFC icon.
  • When the program opens, click on the Start button.  TFC will terminate the Explorer process and all running applications and then begin the process of cleaning out all of your temp folders.
  • When done, press OK to reboot your computer and finish the cleanup.

Note: Depending on how much data is currently stored in the Temp folders, this process can take quite a while to remove all un-needed files, so please be patient.

 

No log file is produced, but you may notice the computer runs a bit better - :)

 

Thank You -

Hi -

Please install / run the programs linked at the top so that we can see how bad this infection is, and post the results.

 

Also run Windows Hosts file restore, as this may stop, or pause the pop-ups for a while -

This is a M/soft Fix it program to help reset your Hosts file as I think yours is corrupted. Click on the link, Click RUN and follow any given instructions.

Thank You -
