Hello Everyone:

 

  My name is xerxiux_X (Pronounced - x-er-Z-uz_"X" -- I always loved the name "Xerox"; and the way X can be used to sound like a Z or an X. Sounds so "futuristic" to me) or you can just call me "Bruce" (does anyone remember that movie? ("They Call Me Bruce" from the 80's) anyway...

 

There are 2 boxes that open up every time I start up my computer, (Win-7)

1st sign:

1)- Has “Windows” written in the upper left hand corner of it’s  titlebar.
Windows can’t open this file
File:    POWERREG SCHEDULER.del

To open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of program that are installed on your computer.

What do you want to do?

(2 radio buttons)
Use the Web Service to find the correct program
Select a program from a list of installed programs

                                                                                  [OK]   [Cancel]

******************2nd Sign*********************
(Magnifying glass & piece of paper, Icon in upper left corner)

2)- Has RunnDLL written in the upper left hand corner of its Titlebar.

There was a problem starting
C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Conduit\BackgroundContainer\BackgoundContainer.dll

The specified module could not be found.
                                                                                                    [OK]

 

 I attached a Screen Capture of the 2 signs, (if you want to see them in real life/time) it's just a .jpg

 

thank You for your time, patience, and understanding,

Bruce

You have adware and possibly a trojan or two.

Use the programs below to find and remove them.

 

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Download MBAM from link above.
* Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
* When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
* When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
o Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
o Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
* Then click Finish.

MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.

* If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
* Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
On the Scanner tab:

* Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
* Then click on the Scan button.
* If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
* The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
* When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
* Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.

Back at the main Scanner screen:

* Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
* The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.

Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

 

download AdwCleaner to your desktop.

 

  • Run adwcleaner.exe
  • Hit Scan and wait for the scan to finish.
  • Confirm the message but don´t uncheck anything.
  • Hit Clean
  • When the run is finished, it will open up a text file
  • Please post its contents within your next reply
  • You´ll find the log file at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt also

 

 

 

 


download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.

  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

go to here to run the online scannner from ESET.

  • Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  • Click Start
  • When asked, allow the activex control to install
  • Click Start
  • Click Scan
  • Wait for the scan to finish
  • If any threats were found, click the 'List of found threats' , then click Export to text file....
  • Save it to your desktop, then please copy and paste that log as a reply to this topic.
