I recently changed to an new ISP in my area. Since then everything was unusual.


1) Its a 60mbps fibernet connection and yet my phone (connected to wifi) couldn't load most of the sites faster. Even my old 16mbps connection loaded them faster. 


2) I have two laptops running Windows 10. One of my laptops was infected with tons of adware and malware. After long hours of trying I had to completely reformat my drive and reinstall windows. Fortunately that was my fallback laptop so I didn't lose any files. 


3) Now many websites that use Cloudfare's website protection shows me a captcha every single time.


4) Project honeypot blacklisted my ip for 6 times saying that it has detected behavior from my IP address consistent with that of a mail server and dictionary attacker.


5) After all these years of using Google for the first time I was warned for higher traffics in google servers and had to enter a captcha. 



I don't know what to do. I occasionally use Hoxx VPN Chrome extension in my main Laptop. My sister working in Amazon connects to Amazon VPN sometimes. Malware bytes and Bit Defender Free found nothing in my laptops. I uninstalled those and installed the trial version of Bitdefender Total Security 2016. But I couldn't login to the bitdefender to scan my pc. I have no idea what is my problem. Seriously in need of help. 


Edit 1:


Just Ran Malwarebytes Anti Rootkit in Safemode in my Fallback laptop. It found 3 malware with 2 registry entries each.


MRT.ext (Trojan.Agent)

MsMMpEng.exe (Security.Hijack)

svchost.exe (Security.Hijack)


ADW Cleaner found two infected chrome extesnions (AOL and ASK).

same issue, btw. none of the user names listed are mine.


from http://www.abuseat.org :

It shows signs of being infected with a spam sending trojan, malicious link or some other form of botnet.

It was last detected at 2016-09-03 09:00 GMT (+/- 30 minutes), approximately 10 hours, 30 minutes ago.

This IP is infected (or NATting for a computer that is infected) with the lethic spambot. In other words, it's participating in a botnet.

If you simply remove the listing without ensuring that the infection is removed (or the NAT secured), it will probably relist again.

viknesh....Welcome to BC...


I suggest you follow the directions below for starting a new topic in the Malware Removal Forum. It may be a few days before

you get a response.


Please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide starting at Step 6.

  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running FRST which will create two logs.

When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs...start the new topic anyway. Explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one.


DO NOT bump your new topic. Wait for a response from one of the Team Members.
