So i followed the [random 8 characters] exe forum. seems like i have the same virus/adware/maleware problem.

ran the adwCleaner and it found the little buggers yay! but then next step on the forum was to run the FRST and report it to get a fixitlist.txt

i'm assuming anyway. if i could make one i surley will, but i looked at his on the other forum and it looked very personal.

so here i am posting my reports form the FRST to hopefully get a fixitlist.txt

 

a freinds computer from work. not my first rodeo with this stuff, but definatly my first time seeing this site, and it's awsome by the way!

 

 

UPDATE: I skipped ahead a few steps and ran malewarebytes, it found detected and took care of the problem

item was from mindspark and in folder called daily bible guide/hjakjfhak/skfhkjasf/kepshurhemj.exe  

thanks anyway!

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.
===

I suggest you run this tool.

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click the Scan button and wait for the process to complete.
  • Click the Report button and the report will open in Notepad.
IMPORTANT
  • If you click the Clean button all items listed in the report will be removed.
If you find some false positive items or programs that you wish to keep, Close the AdwCleaner windows.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click the Scan button and wait for the process to complete.
  • Check off the element(s) you wish to keep.
  • Click on the Clean button follow the prompts.
  • A log file will automatically open after the scan has finished.
  • Please post the content of that log file with your next answer.
  • You can find the log file at C:\AdwCleaner[Sn].txt (n is a number).
===

Run the Farbar tool one more time and post a fresh FRST.TXT log for my review.

Wait for further instructions.
