:welcome: to the Bleeping Computer Virus, Trojans, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs Forum.  My name is Phil and I am a trainee in the Bleeping Computer Malware Removal Study Hall.  If you would permit me to address you by your first name, I would prefer to do that since we will be working together.
 
I will be assisting you with your computer issues.  All of my proposed fixes and suggestions must be approved by a fully-qualified Malware Removal Team member or instructor.  This will delay response times somewhat, but I will endeavor to respond within 48 hours after your last post.
 
 
The first step is provide me with a set of FRST scan logs (FRST.txt and Addition.txt).
 
Please follow the instructions listed in this thread at the top of the Forum, but ignore the part of Instruction :step7: that directs you to create a new thread in this Forum.  Please post your FRST logs to this thread.
 
I will be awaiting your FRST logs.  Thank you and have a great day.
 
Regards,
-Phil

Three day bump.  Do you still require assistance?  If not, please advise and this topic will be closed.

 

If I have not heard from you in the next 48 hours, Forum policy directs that the thread be closed.

 

Have a great day.
