I've been having this odd problem, my computer was infected with a virus and I removed it through many sessions of malware bits and antivirus, but I think there's a remnant of the virus hiding away somewhere in my computer. So far my spyware cannot find it and says there's nothing there, but every time I start up xSplit there's pops up on twitch alerts link in like it would pop up in a web page. When I open up firefox, chrome, and IE this doesn't happen at all but somehow the infection is making the pop ups when xSplit tries to connect to twitch alerts. Any ideas of where the virus could be hiding? I've tried scanning the xSplit folder and nothing is showing up. Attached File  virus.jpg   74.16KB   0 downloadsAttached File  bugthing.png   79.61KB   0 downloads

Save the file as fixlist.txt in the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
The location is listed in the 3rd line of the Farbar log you have submitted.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait.

Restart the computer normally to reset the registry.

The tool will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

I suggest you remove all traces of AVG from this computer.
Download and run the Removal tool suggested on this site.

Please post the Fixlog and let me know what problem persists.
