It's a very long story here and I've been hesitant on asking because I'm totally not good at these kinds of things, anyways I was infected by a malware which was stopped by Kaspersky before doing anything worse. It did very horrible things (or at least attempted to.) 






(this also tried to access my webcam).


And after that I went and rushed to get Malwarebytes. It wouldn't run in Normal mode but was able to run thrice in Safe Mode (it's where I was able to scan.) I'll attach the logs if allowed to. But anyways, after that I went and used AdwCleaner and only cleaned up a little. Then used SUPERAntispyware but couldn't get any more. Oh, right. also, I was trying to remove Yahoo! Powered because it's an adware as well. I used RevoUninstaller to get rid of it permanently. But I'm still scared to death, still. I've been hesitant using my laptop because of what happened. My laptop runs smooth but I feel like I'm not safe. Anyways. I ran Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and this is where I'm going to ask for help now because I feel like my paranoia is also hurting my laptop. Please help me. I haven't done anything but scanned using FRST. I have not done anything else. (I won't post it here because of the rules but I do have the logs.)

Welcome to BC....


Since you have FRST logs....post them in a new topic in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs
