There was a secondary virus that windows defender (offline) caught, but I don't recall what it was now.

 

I have multiple dllhost.exe processes running, under the user the virus was obtained as, one of which is the process that submits a pop up from "Internet Explorer" asking if I want to stay on this page, IE is not open, Google Chrome is, no pages where visited, Chrome is just left open (@ google.com) and after a period of time, the pop up appears.

 

The above issue does not seem to present itself when in "clean boot" mode, however the dllhost.exe processes still remain.

 

I need a review by those of you who are smarter than myself, there is something going on and I can't seem to find it.

 

Where shall we start?

 

 

since I originally posted this, i've just let the computer sit, Chrome is still open, and the ("Windows Internet Explorer" : 'Are you sure you want to leave this page?') message just came back.  Not sure if that was useful or not, but hey there it is.

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.

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