Hello everyone.

My Windows 8, After a long time of using started acting very strange. I have NOD Smart Security as a anti-virus software did a scan on a system drive found some irrelevant viruses that i had,a win32 chub worm, but that's not the exact problem.

I remember having an adware that starts browser with a spammy startpage, but i deleted it now.

THE REAL PROBLEM is i don't why(even after having many experience with pcs) After some time or a random time pc acts very strange, apps like Steam, any other even task manager go nuts, I have screenshoting tool called Lightshot even that thing goes nuts, when i press PrntScrn it has to show transparent screenshot to click and size the areas of the shot, but it shows White or buggy screen when problems starts, Steam gives some errors like can't find some files, task manager asks for a admin permissions, UTorrent starts to display errors like "Not enough storage is available to process this command". Sometimes pc freezes with lack of memory (last time it froze couldnt open tskmgr). Then after i a restart it's all gone, but things like browser cookies, app datas like (Download Master's download list) are gone.

I really don't its a virus problem, or hardware, or corrupt OS.

hello brutalsam

Not certain if you considered win32 chub worm an irrelevant virus, as it is far from that.
It is a chat client worm with backdoor Trojan functionality. The worm uses API calls for both Windows Messenger and AOL Messenger to send messages to contacts, with an attached file containing a copy of the worm. Worm:Win32/Neeris.C connects to an IRC server and waits to receive commands, such as to self-update, remove itself, download various programs and malware, or terminate running processes.




Due to what is happening I feel your best course of cleaning is a deeper look.

Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Now that you have posted a log at the linked topic above: 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.

Please be patient. 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. Good luck with your log.
