I'm not sure of the order in which I have done things since I've been working on this computer for three days now.
I had ransomeware in which I was able to right click the files and restore previous versions of the files because they were in old restore points. I got lucky. But there were some remnants left over. Someone uninstalled a bunch of programs that I didn't use. I uninstalled some more. And then I had many Trojans and viruses and ran every program I knew was good to clean up this computer and I thought I was finished until I used Internet Explorer and a website I created would get redirects to other websites, so I installed and used other malware programs.
I found BleepingComputer and some download pages, so I downloaded and used what was suggested and what other people were downloading. At some point, I read not to use ComboFix until I had help from someone technical but I didn't realize that was someone who helps on this forum and ran it anyway thinking I was technical enough to do so. Kind of knowing I should wait and read more, I went ahead and got curious of the options of the installation but it was too late because it automatically started after I clicked something without any cancel button (again I can't remember exactly what I did). It hid for a little while and I thought it had stopped but then it came back up again and finished up what it was doing.
I used Rkill at some point and found ALERT: ZEROACCESS rootkit symptoms found. Not sure what to do about that or if it has something to do with the ransomeware.
At some point I ran TDSSkiller but did not choose "delete" when it said Device\Harddisk0\DR0 problem and ignored it. I then Google'd it and found a post here: www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/461250/tdsskiller-deleted-deviceharddisk0dr0-and-now-operating-system-wont-boot/ and read through it and it was pretty much the same as what I experienced.
Everything seems to be running normally now, but the computer still has a bunch of excess stuff left over after programs were uninstalled and I'm not sure if the browser is safe yet or about the zeroaccess situation and Harddisk situation. The log files are showing Norton, Chrome, Firefox, etc. which were uninstalled. I sure like to get rid of all that excess garbage.
So I have used:
Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, Ad-Aware, Spybot, CCleaner, TDSSKiller, HitmanPro, Rkill, JRT, AdwCleaner, ComboFix, FRST64, JRT, and NPE.exe and installed all the windows updates that were required not suggested.
I have log files for each of these and am attaching FRST and ComboFix (prematurely)
Is my system now clean enough to run for the next few years or should more be fixed or should I do a system restore to get rid of the ComboFix I did prematurely and start over from FRST first?
Thanks so much for any help you can offer.
p.s. I did not choose "fix" on FRST and didn't know if I was to do that yet.
