My computer has been acting funny recently.. Chrome refusing to start / "Run as admin" refusing to start any program / Locking up during random activities... 

 

Now I'm a fairly advanced user as far as admin work goes, I usually do all my own repairs/reinstalls and don't need help, also I have never in my life run an anti-virus software on my PC as it's been never needed, I know how do avoid being infected for the most part.. But.. Now I think I am infected with something or just in general need of help. 

 

I ran an sfc /scannow and for the first time ever I actually had a corrupt DLL and attempting to fix it failed. "Opencl.dll" is corrupted and cannot be fixed. Soo.. I used this threat to attempt a repair and was successful. 

 

http://serverfault.com/questions/741487/how-to-fix-corrupted-opencl-dll-in-windows-10-if-sfc-and-dism-are-failing

 

My question is.. Was this a virus? Or did something just corrupt a DLL file?

 

Thanks,

Nony

nonymoosee:

: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. I would like to address you by your first name, if that is alright with you 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 Instructor. This will delay response times somewhat, but I will endeavor to respond within a reasonable time, normally 48 hours after your last post.

I will need some time to review your FRST logs and consult with the Malware Response Instructor (MRI) who will be assigned to supervise this topic. That could take a few days. Once I have reviewed my proposed response with the assigned MRI, I will reply to you with initial instructions.

PLEASE DO NOT RUN ANY ADDITIONAL SCANS OR ANTI-MALWARE REMOVAL TOOLS UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED A RESPONSE FROM ME.
Doing so would complicate the situation and it would cause further delays in resolving your issues. It could also potentially result in harm to your computer because my "fix" will be based on the FRST scan logs you have already submitted.

Thank you and have a great day.

Regards,
-Phil

I have reviewed your FRST logs and I have consulted with the Malware Response Instructor assigned to supervise me while I address your topic and your issues.

The logs reveal the presence of cracked or pirated software. Bleeping Computer Forum rules prohibit the use of cracked or pirated software after a warning has been issued: See this link.
 

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.


Using such software "tools" frequently results in computers being infected.

I request that you remove your pirated copy of Microsoft Office, and any other pirated or "cracked" software on your computer. If you choose to do so, then please supply a fresh set of FRST logs, with Addition.txt, checked, after all such software has been removed from your computer.

 

If you choose to keep the pirated and/or cracked software, then please let me know and I will have a Moderator conclude your topic.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

 

Regards,

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
