My laptop is acting slow lately and now the internet is being slow. The internet is fine on other computers.

Also I have found a folder in the C:\Program Files (x86) directory called Conduit. I ran hijackthis and there are some toolbar lines aswell.

Nortan does not pick-up on anything though.

 Conduit is malware that is extremely hard to get rid of because it sinks its roots into dozens of places.  Try installing the free version of Malwarebytes, get it up to date, then boot to Safe Mode and do a full system scan with it and your antivirus.  You'll probably need more tools to get rid of this beast, but that will be a good start.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Please download and run RKill by Grinler.
A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear.
This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
Please Copy and Paste the log back here

 

 

Important: Do not reboot your computer until you complete the next step.

 

 

Now: Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
NOTE : Please close or save all work, as the computer will be Rebooted
Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
Click on the Scan button. (only once)
AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review. 
If you see any which you do not want removed, untick the check mark next to it. 
Next: Click on the Clean button (only once) to remove the selected items. 
You will receive a message telling you that all programs will be close so that the infections can be removed. 
Click on OK, and then OK again to confirm the reboot.
When cleaning process is complete a log (AdwCleaner[S0].txt ) of what was removed will be on your desktop. 
Please copy and the paste this log in your next post.

 

A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.

 

 

Next -

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free version 1.75.0.1300 has now been upgraded to Version 2.0.2

Please follow removal methods. (link is to Malwarebytes site) if required -

 

 

* Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free and save it to your desktop

* Follow the directions to install the latest version
* Select I accept the agreement then continue to click Next then finally click Install
** Uncheck Enable free trial of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium if you do not want the free trial of the paid version, then click Finish
* If you are notified the Database is out of date click Update Now
* Click Scan Now >>

----------

** Note: If Malwarebytes will not launch please do the following to launch Malwarebytes Chameleon:
* Click Start (Start, Search, All files and folders for Windows XP) then type mbam
* Double click one of the four following files (if one does not work try the next one, and so on) - A black command window will open. Follow those instructions until the Malwarebytes program starts the scan

mbam-chameleon.scr
mbam-chameleon
mbam-chameleon.exe
mbam-chameleon.com

----------

** When completed click the down arrow on Export Log and select Text file (*.txt)
* Save the file to your desktop as MBAM
* Click Apply Actions then restart your computer if requested
* Copy and past the contents of MBAM.txt in your reply

 

 

Final step if you still have problems. Try these ideas -

 

1. Go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel or Programs and Features if using Vista/Windows 7/8. From within Add/Remove Programs look for anything unusual in the list and select Remove.


2. Open your browser and disable (uncheck) all extensions. Make a list, then one by one, re-enable each extension to see if the pop-ups start appearing again with that particular extension. Once you identify the responsible extension...permanently remove it but let me know which one it was so I can update our list.
