Hi and I'm very sorry my first post in this forum is a desperate cry for help but I don't know what to do


Today I found my download folder completely empty which doesnt make sense because I keep some files there when I dont feel like moving them around and when I go to my C: so I can go to users to see what the deal is I found another fodler just named "Downloads" which contained the file myfiles.exe obviously I didn't do anything to it and it's just sitting there as I'm speaking it I didn't even remove it and at the moment avira hasn't found anything


So I go to users and in the main directory or whatever is it called, when you can see your contacts, favorites, games, documents, pics music and the downloads folders I find I have 6, exactly 6 folders named "downloads" and In one of them I think the last one I find all the stuff that was previously on my downloads folder


Also I do not know if it's related or not but sometimes when I'm on the internet and click a link it shows me the "server not found" page but I do have internet and when I do reload (sometimes it takes more tries) it loads normally


I'm on widows 7 and I'm using avira, I'll edit this post when it's over scanning and post a log

Still scanning?


Do scans with the programs below and allow them to remove whatever they find.


  • download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
    Close all open programs and internet browsers.
    Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Click on Delete.
    Confirm each time with Ok.
    You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open after the restart.
    Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
    You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.


  • 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.

  • Last run ESET.
  • 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 esetsmartinstaller_enu.png 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 "Remove found threats"
  • 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
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
  • NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.
  • download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.
    Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
  • Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.
    Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.
