As I've mentioned earlier I 've been having trouble with "printer communication" failure needing a a re-loading of drivers after each reboot. I uninstalled my printer software then reinstalled it. Things automatically updated via online and then after a visit to Windows Update then with a reboot. After the reboot I seem to be able to print with no problem now. This part of my problem seems to be resolved.
I still need to be concerned about corruption on my computer from the rootkits and other malware recently detected by my programs. This is in addition to possible corruption due to possible installed software etc. I did notice corruption in my registry with "garble" at one key (I deleted the garble); in the same area there was a weird entry to a *.tmp file with a "/??/" entry at the beginning of the line.[Now deleted and no longer present anymore since my re-install of the printer software].
Due to all this 'possible" corruption I my want to do a "System Reinstall" per prior instructions but I am holding off now. I will still need to be sure my system is free of "active",alware I am avoiding a complete re-installation of all program again although the Registry may need to be fixed, if anything.
I've run the SFC /SCANNOW and no problems were found in my system files fortunately. I still need to run the F12 DELL Diagnostics; I've found in the past that when "weird things" start happening it could also be a sign of hardware/hard drive failure so this may need to be checked. I should also take a look at my Window Event Viewer Logs for system problems.
I would like to look at my system and make sure it is CLEAN. I am pasting a recent log from my Avast Antivirus of rootkits found and deleted by me. I have run my Antivirus on "higest heuristic" with ALL unpackers for detection to find this and other trojans/viruses etc.
In addition my Malwarebytes-Pro has just been repeatedly blocking outbound traffic from "avastsvc.exe" to IP address 184.108.40.206, an address found to be in Netherlands so "suspicious" as to what is on my machine setting this off.
I will provide more as needed. Thank you.
