Hello,

 

Thanks for your help in advance.  The problem started today after 3pm when I am installing and refreshing my laptop after Win10 update.  On every startup, I have a dialogue come up "Windows cannot find "skypehost.exe". Make sure you typed the names correctly, and then try again." even though I do not have messaging in windows apps (I deleted it) or Skype.  I can not find any startup registry or services that starts skypehost.  I can not even find skypehost.exe on my computer.  I believe it must be one of the files I was installing that contain a virus that.  Can you help?  I Have attached FRST log for your review.  Again, thank you for your help in advance!

 

PS - I tried malwarebytes, malwarebytes anti-rootkit, sophos, adwcleaner, eset, tdsskiller, MS Defender.  Really appreciate your help!

Sorry I did not realize it was double posted.  The first post did not seem to go through (I thought) because of my internet connect.  Apologies for this. System Admin, would you mind deleting this post? Thanks.
