  1. The ol' task manager/control panel disappearing trick, request for Log Check

    Hi,

    First, thank you for existing!

    I acquired some virus/malware thing that disabled my task manger, control panel, put 'virus alert' by my clock etc. Found the solutions posted on your site and three hours later, I 'think' I'm clean. But...not sure. Would it be possible to have someone look at my log files to be sure?

    Attached below and thanks again...god, this sucked but it would have sucked worse without your help!

    You did a great job!

    But I would not "think:: I am clean. I would be sure!

    Based on quantity and high risk items found in each program...

    I advise running each program again and make sure they do come up clean! Some of these things expose things for the 2nd run that the first run did no see!

    You can also try this excellent tool:
    Download RatsCheddar

    It contains a program written by Rathat, and it is a Policy Controller.
    Save and extract this program to the desktop.
    Once extracted, Double click on the RatsCheddar.exe file.
    Enable everything, then click Exit
    Reboot your Computer.

    Thanks everyone. I ran everything again and came up clean. I don't know if I need to post the log files, but it seems to be acting alright now. Thanks for your help!
