Running windows 7.

RKill runs but does not report anything malicious.  Run any version of Malware Bytes, it hangs and cannot update definitions.  Malwarebytes Chameleon cannot update and hangs at Timeout set to 1800 seconds.

Ran Mini ToolBox and it hangs at the IP check.

here's the log.

Several system startup items are not running according to that RKill log.

 

Try booting into Safe Mode With Networking and attempt to update MBAM and run a scan using it.

Post its results using the directions below.

 

  • Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
  • Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
  • Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
  • If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
  • When MBAM is finished scanning it will display a screen that displays any malware that it has detected.
  • Click the Remove Selected button.
  • MBAM will now delete all of the files and registry keys and add them to the programs quarantine. When removing the files, MBAM may require a reboot in order to remove some of them. If it displays a message stating that it needs to reboot, please allow it to do so.
  • While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can also be viewed by clicking the History tab and then selecting Application Logs.

POST THE LOG FOR  REVIEW.

 

Again in Safe Mode With Networking, run a scan using Eset Online Scanner.

 

 

  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the esetonlinebtn.png button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu.png icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
  • NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.

I've tried starting in safe mode with networking.

MBAM starts then goes to Not Responding in task manager

Tried MBAM from the command prompt and it hangs

Tried MBAM Chameleon from cmd prompt - tried to update, can't, then hangs at "Time out set to 1800 seconds"

Tried running MBAM exe from USB, still the same.

If I could run Chrome or Explorer I would try the second part.

 

Thanks

I overlooked the fact that you ran RKill in safe mode.

 

Do you have your important documents backed up? If not, I suggest you do that as I think you are going to need to

reinstall Windows.

 

If the HDD is the original you should be able to reinstall using the recovery partition. If you need help with that then

please post the manufacturer and model of the computer.

Thanks for the quick response!

I figured I was down to a reinstall.

It's not the original HDD as I replaced it a few years ago.(Dell Inspiron 1545)

 

When I reinstall I just want to make sure I don't start with an infected partition or boot sector.

 

One more question, does this seem the result of a virus/Trojan?  Or signs of a HDD failure?

See if you can follow the directions in link below.

Check your hard disk for errors in Windows 7
