Hi...and not knowing something...does not qualify as a criterion for whatever "dumb" might be :).


Moving this topic to Am I Infected forum for a first look...and, no...you should never follow the steps for a malware situation which were made in regard to a different member, with a different system, possibly a different problem.  It's always best to initiate your own topic which focuses on your situation.


Please provide any info requested by those trying to help.


Thanks :).

In that case.


I got infiltrated by a virus when i botched a torrent download. It happens sometimes. Attempted to purge my system and i thought i was successful until the next day (this happened about 3 months ago). The next day, my computer could not keep time. However, i didnt care because i was connected via LAN to my router. Since then i have recently moved to a new place and the router is about 25 feet away now. No dice for a LAN cord, so it means switching to my adaptor. This is where that time keeping thing interferes. My router boots me off when it sees that i have a date 3 months ago. Not good, espicially since i use this computer for work. Ive tried everything from renewing my ipconfig, getting a new adaptor, editing regedit, buying a new motherboard battery and nothing so far has managed to fix it for more than a few hours. Its really taking me for a ride and i dont know how to stop it. Ive also tried some malware scanning porgrams in the past and it didnt detect anything so i dunno. Im willing to buy a new motherboard but if it doesnt work id be even more pissed. Would appreciate any help with the problem, and thank you very much.

Hi, lets see what these show.

  • Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.
  • Checkmark the following checkboxes:
    • Flush DNS
    • Report IE Proxy Settings
    • Reset IE Proxy Settings
    • Report FF Proxy Settings
    • Reset FF Proxy Settings
    • List content of Hosts
    • List IP conf[iguration
    • List Winsock Entries
    • List last 10 Event Viewer log
    • List Installed Programs
    • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
  • Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run. Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.
  • Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool. Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
And finally I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan:
  • It is recommended to turn off your antivirus program. Click on the E5rfZI9.png button to see which antivirus is currently enabled:
  • Turn off your antivirus program. See here how to do this.
  • Check the option beside: Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications.
  • Now click on Advanced Settings and make sure that the option Clean threats automatically is NOT checked, and select the following:
Enable detection of potentially unsafe applications
Enable detection of suspicious applications
Scan archives
Enable Anti-Stealth Technology
  • Click on the Change button and select only Operating memory, Autostart locations and drive C:\ to be scanned.
  • Push the dtoGjAL.png button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes a list of found threats will open automatically (if any malicious files are found).
  • Push thecRhRYZ8.png button and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan.txt. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the 9IjfdXq.png button.
  • Check the box beside RHzfZB1.png to uninstall the application when closed.
  • Push Vc3btaC.png and the close the application clicking the X in upper right corner.
