I have a Trojan.Stolendata on my system that cannot be removed.  Or I have found no way to remove it.

I want reformat my hard drive  and reinstall my programs.  To start over from scratch.  I have a Windows 10 OS.  It has the ability to save my data and return the computer to factory specs.  Will this solve my problem or do I need to wipe the HD totally clean and install Windows 10 from the start.

Be aware that my original OS was Win 8.1 and I did a free Windows 10 upgrade.  I did saye the Windows 10 upgrade files to my cloud drive.

Any help on this subject will be appreciated.



Thanks,

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

There is NO need for such drastic measures at the moment.


Please download and run the following tool to help allow other programs to run. (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com)
There are 3 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.

rkill.exe
rkill.com
rkill.scr

It is possible that the infection you are trying to remove will not allow you to download files on the infected computer. If this is the case, then you will need to download the files requested on another computer and then transfer them to the desktop of the infected computer. You can transfer the files via a CD/DVD, external drive, or USB flash drive.

When completed it will create a log. Please post the content on your next reply.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from here
  • Right-click on the MBAM icon and select Run as administrator to run the tool.
  • Click Yes to accept any security warnings that may appear.
  • Once the MBAM dashboard opens, on the right detail pane click on the word "Current" under the Scan Status to update the tool database.
  • On the left menu pane click the Settings tab, and then select the Protection tab on the top.
  • Under the Scan Options, turn on the button Scan for rootkits and Scan within archives.
  • Click the Scan tab on the right detail pane, select Threat Scan and click the Start Scan button
  • Note: The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • If potential threats are detected, ensure to checkmark all the listed items, and click the Quarantine Selected button.
  • While still on the Scan tab, click the View Report button, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
  • The log can also be viewed by clicking the log to select it, then clicking the View Report button.
Please post the log for my review.

Note: If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Download the version of this tool for your operating system.
Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (64 bit)

and save it to a folder on your computer's Desktop.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

The OP - eclark53 - has three topics running in this section on this problem. The original is -

started on the 6th April to which fireman4it is responding. To avoid confusion, and to reduce the workload on members of the MRL forum, I am closing the other two to which Nasdaq is responding.
