So I am quite new today. Sorry if this is sudden. I got this laptop not too long ago. I was browsing through the internet to figure out what this could be and it may be possible that my computer is infected. I have not had a chance to reinstall norton since it had caused some lag issue with my laptop (which was resolved when it was uninstalled). Since I've been very busy, I'm rarely on my computer. However, I noticed that when I got on, my internet got slower. I figured it may have been windows update but decided to look through the network stuff on task manager (which led to looking at resource manager) and I saw a lot of dll hosts (possibly 10 or more) running on the background. I think this may be the cause of my internet issues. 

I am running on Window's 8.1 and using a Sony VAIO E Series. I have attached the FRST logs as well.

Hello! Welcome to BleepingComputer Forums! :welcome:
My name is Georgi and and I will be helping you with your computer problems.

Before we begin, please note the following:

  • I will working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.
  • Stay with the topic until I tell you that your system is clean. Missing symptoms does not mean that everything is okay.
  • Instructions that I give are for your system only!
  • Please do not run any tools until requested ! The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.
  • Please perform all steps in the order received. If you can't understand something don't hesitate to ask.
  • Again I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so. I will not help you if you do not follow my instructions.

 

 

STEP 1

 

 

Please download the following file => and save it to the Desktop.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

Run FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply.

 

 

 

STEP 2

Please download Powelikscleaner (by ESET) and save it to your Desktop.

  • Double-click ESETPoweliksCleaner.exe to start the tool.
  • Read the terms of the End-user license agreement and click Agree if you agree to them.
  • The tool will run automatically. If the cleaner finds a Poweliks infection, press the Y key on your keyboard to remove it.
  • If Poweliks was detected "Win32/Poweliks was successfully removed from your system" will be displayed. Press any key to exit the tool and reboot your PC.
  • The tool will produce a log in the same directory the tool was run from.
  • Please copy and paste the log in your next reply.
