Hi guys,

I'm cleaning some nasty malware that slows the computer to a crawl even though it has 4GB RAM and running a AMD Athlon II X3 triple core processor. I managed to open Task Manager and it's only using 400MB of available RAM and the processor is about Zero % active.

I made a Hiren's Boot CD so at least I can get the computer to do something.

 

I ran Malwarebyte'a Anti-Malware several times but these two items won't go away:

  • Malware.Packer.Gen
  • PUM.Hijack.Help

I checked your site and it suggested I use the latest version of Rkill. I did, but it terminates with the error:

  • There was a problem retrieving the path for: Common_Desktop. Rkill terminated!

I could use some help on this one!

Please download and run this DDS Scanning Tool. Nothing will be deleted. It will just give me some additional information about your system.

Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links, if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.

1: DDS.scr (Not recommended if you use Chrome to download this .scr file. Use the other options.)
2: DDS.pif
3: DDS.COM

Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
Notepad will open with the results.
Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.

dds_scr.gif

Please just paste the contents of the DDS.txt log in your next post. DO NOT attach the log.

Please paste the logs in your next reply, DO NOT ATTACH THEM
Let me know what problem persists.
