I am so sorry but I cannot post a Farbar Recovery Scan log.
In Firefox when I try to download, the 'Opening FRST.exe' with the Save button gets a notification dialogue pop up stating:
C:\Users\pc\AppData\Local\Temp\e7xKkh8T.exe.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.
Try again later, or contact the server administrator.
I can press OK on this and attempt to save the file, but it is then 0 bytes on my hard drive and trying to open it I am informed it may be corrupted.
I tried with Google Chrome and received an Unknown network error.
I recently moved to Viet Nam and am staying with a friend. It's a security nightmare because within a week he'd left the front door unlocked and someone took our 2 laptops. He immediately went out and bought a new one for himself and kindly got me a second hand old Dell Latitude. Now I've found this home network is probably compromised as well....
I had been setting up my new (old) Dell machine, including installing the drivers from Dell, and then Avast! informed me some files were infected. The files were all those drivers I had just downloaded from Dell's website. I'm now convinced that source (official Dell downloads) is secure and that the infection has come from this network somehow. Anyway, Avast! placed the Dell drivers into it's Virus Chest and seemed happy.
Then I ran Malwarebytes just to be sure and it found 22 infections with things like 'Worm' and 'PUP' in the names. I let it fix the problems and ran it again and this scan came up with Backdoor.Bot so I let it fix that and the next scan came up clean.
After that I scanned with Trend Micro's Housecall online scan and it gave me one result: a Rootkit. It said it fixed the problem but when I scanned again the exact same Rootkit result came up again.
I then tried Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit Beta (sorry, memory is a little hazy here) but I think it fixed it and after a reboot of the system the problem was back again.
This was enough to know I am probably seriously compromised but I needed to ascertain if it was because it's a second hand computer from a dodgy background or if it was my friend's home network I'm using that was infected.
So before coming here I installed Malwarebytes on his brand new machine and it resulted in HackTool.Agent which pretty much confirms to me that this network has serious problems.
Whilst writing this post I forgot exactly the name of what Housecall found so I just scanned again and it's come up with a load of infected executables. These are programs I had copied over from formerly clean and protected external backup drives so it looks like something is jumping on any executables I download or copy onto the machine, and it's possibly even on my backup drives.
I've gone as far as I can and it's going to take a specialist to get me out of this mess. I can't download Farbar Recovery Tool from majorgeeks dot com either, after I desperately tried an alternative link.
I think I'm now drowning in a huge mess not of my own making, please save me!
I had the bright idea of downloading the Farbar Recovery Tool to my friend's laptop and copying to a USB drive. Since everything is compromised already it seemed worth trying. I pasted it onto my own laptop and the executable showed a correct file size this time... then after about 3 seconds it just completely disappeared. I tried again, same thing.
