I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, 4GB, 64 bit and consistently check for errors via Comodo Anti-Virus, Malwarebytes and Glary 3 Utilities.  For a while now, the computer is very slow at startup.  I have no idea what startup programs SHOULD be running vs. what programs ARE.  I recently looked at the list of Programs in my CP and noticed a "Rating_Workstation_Basic" program.  I have no idea what this is and where it came from.  When I attempted to uninstall it, it tried to "reinstall" it to no avail.


Can you help?  I think this is a Trojan...UGH!

Let's have a look for malware..


:step1:  Install and run MBAM

:step2:    Running TDSSKiller to obtain log


Note: Don't cure or delete a threat, but choose skip for all instead.

  • Please download TDSSKiller from here and save it to your Desktop
  • Doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then click on Change parameters


  • In the Additional options: Check Detect TDLFS file system
  • Click Start Scan and allow the scan process to run


  • Choose for all threats to Skip for all of them.
  • Click Continue
  • Please post the TDSSKiller.[Version]_[Date]_[Time]_log.txt found in your root directory (typically c:\)



:step2:  ESET Online Scanner


Note: If your AV is blocking Eset online scanner, please temporarily disable your AV.


I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan This process may may take several hours, that is normal.

  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the esetonlinebtn.png button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and » UNCHECK "Remove found threats" <== Important
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Copy and paste the information in your next reply. (If no malware was found you will not be presented with a log).
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
