Hello to all of you!


Perhaps I should give a brief background about my computer knowledge and where it came from, and a short history of my business and what it does as I am retired basically, and often have time to devote to Folding@Home where I've been a contributor for some 7 years and counting. I am experienced in Windows, the Mac OS from OS 7.x.x through the current version Mac OS , and a bit of everything else in-between. I also build computer systems, for friends and family and the occasional commercial venture of local retail businesses in my community where I am known as sort of a computer "whiz" who can readily answer most questions quickly and to the point if it involves basic System processes in the two OS's I'm familiar with, and general topics from what video card to buy, current chassis configurations and what works best within a given budget, etc.


I am trying to rid my office server of some kind of malware attack at this time, as the attack has rendered said server inop at this time, as i cannot trust it to perform any of its usual functions without it shutting down without warning, restart without notice, crash, Blue  Screen of some type I've never seen before now, and other anomalies...so down one server in an office with 3 PC OEM builds, a MacBook Pro, and a fleet of devices from the gamut of cell phones, iPads, and the like being administered chiefly by this server I am giving a brief explanation about, so all admin jobs are on hold presently also.


I am a retired former high-end automobile industry executive, sales manager, general manager, and all sorts of  job consults, lectures and get to know sessions for new products; prior to that I was a Working Press reporter for the long range of Journalism's professional organizations from daily newspapers, to the Copley Press, stringer for the Associated Press and UPI when it existed; I have a BA degree, Journalism, from one of the West Coast's leading universities known for its Journalism program, in BCA and written press both, was an active tournament tennis player for some 30-or-so years, teaching Pro before and during that. In short I've had a very active professional life and tennis has opened many doors for me where other venues would most likely fear to tread in or upon.


My business is related to my outside interests other than the above topics, namely photography (semi-Pro in nature), and coaching people online to use AP style writing so their topics are presented with impact and a wide open door for commentary when posting online topics or business structured situations. I work  with computing when I feel like it or am asked to contribute to some topic, forum, or media venture from things like the music business--both retail and the recording industry where I maintain many close friends and contacts...that pretty much sums up what I've done to this point in life, and other than being a published author of more than a million and a half (1.5Million) words in the legitimate press, my university's and high school publications and the like. So that is me, and I will now go about searching for the proper Forum to humbly and hopefully post easy to understand questions about my topic here, and bid you all adieu for the present.


I apologize for the typos in this introduction but I wanted to get this handled before the dinner hour here, and will post my problem afterward as I've had a busy day and am hungry, somewhat exhausted physically and mentally, and I just didn't take the necessary time to correct any/all mistakes in this post. My bad, sorry about that...

Now that you have properly posted a malware log topic, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on, the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
