I have problems with 2 computers (See background here) and was asked to make a separate post for my desktop PC.
When browsing, there seems to be a major delay before any pages load, no matter how my internet connection is doing. Today, while looking into the issue and running different programs recommended in the thread linked above, the computer when to the blue screen of death twice. The first error received was ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY. The computer rebooted. Shortly after, the second error occurred: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION.
I then used the minitoolbox app and posted the results in the previous thread and Phantom010 mentioned that it was definitely infected, so here I am.
I will attach relevant files in following posts with minitoolbox scans, msinfo32 info, etc.
I run Malwarebytes and Windows Defender. On Phantom010's recommendation, I ran the online scan from ESET. These were the results found there:

C:\Users\Scott\Downloads\cbsidlm-cbsi183-AdwCleaner-SEO-75851221 (1).exe a variant of Win32/CNETInstaller.B potentially unwanted application deleted - quarantined
C:\Users\Scott\Downloads\cbsidlm-cbsi183-AdwCleaner-SEO-75851221.exe a variant of Win32/CNETInstaller.B potentially unwanted application deleted - quarantined

 Just got another blue screen error: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
It happened just as I was trying to post the link to Speccy results. It is taking a long time for Speccy to finish analyzing.

I have attached the new results from Farbar. I haven't even used this computer since the original posting of this thread.


I do have a Windows 8.1 install dvd/rom and also a bootable USB drive. I don't have the original disc though.

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

Your log is clean of malware.


The first error received was ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY. The computer rebooted. Shortly after, the second error occurred: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION.

Both these errors are indicative of some wrong drivers presently installed.

Since you do not have the Windows 8 installation disk I suggest your try the fix on this page.

If that fails to solve your problem I suggest you start a new topic in the Windows 8 forum.
An expert may be able to help better than I can.
This is not malware and not my forte.
