Hi all, 
 
I've downloaded FRST.
 
If someone is experienced analyzing the output logs of FRST could they post here?
 
I'll Private Message you the logs as I don't want to make system specifications and settings public on the forum.
 
I'm interested in completely scanning my system for all forms of Malware / Viruses / Rootkits / Trojans/ Keyloggers / Mouseloggers etc.
 
I've had a lot of suspicious activity recently including a CMD prompt window that briefly appears and disappears during system startup and indications of a Graphics Driver hack due to resolution going from a high-res to a low-res during the windows boot-up animation.
 
Your assistance much appreciated. I'll provide the FRST output via Private Message to whoever replies to the thread.

Hi Thelps

Unfortunately we don't converse through the PM system here.
If you require help you will have to post the FRST reports in this thread.

Thanks

I'm just worried the FRST report might publicize information that actually reduces the security of the computer.

 

Could you suggest anyone who can analyze an FRST log output without further compromising system integrity and security?

 

I've received really bad advice on forums before. I'm sure the posters didn't mean it but I'm interested in avoiding it happening again.

Hi Thelps

Both, the author of FRST and the Site Owner of Bleeping Computer take the matter of privacy very seriously.
Nothing shown in the reports will compromise your security.

I've received really bad advice on forums before. I'm sure the posters didn't mean it but I'm interested in avoiding it happening again.

I can well imagine that, there are a lot of rogue sites that use unqualified staff.
This site and the 'helpers' in this forum are members of UNITE which is a guarantee of competence and guaranteed training.

So I'll take your assurances to mean you want the logs made public and therefore don't trust the 'Malware Expert' (or whatever the correct term is) to effectively troubleshoot the problem?

 

Basically, what I'm saying is, you still haven't provided a concrete reason why the logs need to be made public.

Hi Thelps

Sorry I don't understand what you mean by: and therefore don't trust the 'Malware Expert' (or whatever the correct term is) to effectively troubleshoot the problem?

Of course I trust the 'Malware Expert' ..... in this case, it's me!

Basically, what I'm saying is, you still haven't provided a concrete reason why the logs need to be made public.

The reason is simple.....
If you require help, we need to see the reports.
We do not converse by PM, so posting them in this forum is the only option.

The instructions are laid out in the; Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help

Also, the Site rules do state:

All help must be provided in the forums or on our IRC Chat channel. We do not allow support to be provided or requested via personal message, email, or remote desktop control programs (Logmein, TeamViewer, etc).

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forum-rules/

If you want to try another forum, then by all means do.
Any decent forum will have the same guidelines/rules in place.

I have had messages with Moderators before via PM, but I understand that the site rules state that the logs need to be publicly available.

 

Unfortunately I've had very bad experience with forum assistance before and could very potentially have an 'open book' of a PC at this point in time. Consequently It's necessary for me to ensure that whoever is 'tracking me' cannot be aware of what measures I'm taking to ensure a clean, secure, anonymous internet and computer experience.

 

I've lost literally hundreds of hours of work due to remote computer access, viruses, malware, internet trackers, jokers at various tech-support forums, call centres etc.

 

Even the VPNs I have tried in the past either seem to get hacked, raided (by police) or someone working at them either flat-out lies about their anonymity or makes a mistake that compromises it.

 

My primary concern is a maximum level of internet and computer security and anonymity.

 

I understand and respect that this forums' rules contravene my efforts towards that, specific to this circumstance.

 

My thanks for your assistance.
