System appears to have a bot attached interrupting WiFi and possibly Ethernet.  Tech support at a hotel said my IP was sending out DNS requests repeatedly so the server was blocking me.  I even tried Resetting and reloading Windows 10, but to no avail.


Prior to reinstall I ran Hitman Pro, AdWareCleaner, and Malwarebytes but they didn't find anything.  I ran Rouge Killer and it found MalPE.xx files listed below.  I tried deleting them but the app could not delete them all.... so I reloaded windows (which, after spending all day troubleshooting, was my intention).


Here is the log from RK:

I understand RK can produce false positives, so I'm not sure what to do at this point.  I am out-of-town with less resources at my disposal.  

I also checked my IP at  https://www.tcpiputils.com and it indicated I was in Rome, Italy which is totally false!


Any help is appreciated.

The RogueKiller may be generating some false positives.

Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.
