My name is etavares and I will be helping you with this log.
 
Here are some guidelines to ensure we are able to get your machine back under your control.
 
  • Please do not run any unsupervised scans, fixes, etc.  We can work against each other and end up in a worse place.
  • Please subscribe to this topic if you have not already done so.  Please check back just in case, as the email system can fail at times.
  • Just because your machine is running better does not mean it is completely cleaned.  Please wait for the 'all clear' from me to say when we are done.
  • Please reply within 3 days to be fair to other people asking for help.
  • When in doubt, please stop and ask first.  There's no harm in asking questions!
  •  
     
     
    Step 1
     
     
    What version of windows are you using?  The answer will dictate what tools we can use to regain control.
