Tech Stocking Stuffers: 18 awesome gifts under $50

Virus making computer sluggish

  1. I tried to run the preliminary scans you ask for..... I ran Malwarebytes, and it found a bunch of stuff. After that I attempted to run GMER and it caused my system to BSOD & crash. Windows couldn't start, so in the startup recovery thingy that started to run automatically, it did a system restore. It restored it to before I had run Malwarebytes, so I re-ran it. I was kinda scared to run anything else without having someone direct me!
    Here is the log:

    • Download RogueKiller and save it on your desktop.
    • Quit all programs
    • Start RogueKiller.exe.
    • Wait until Prescan has finished ...
    • Click on Scan

    • Wait for the end of the scan.
    • The report has been created on the desktop.
    • Click on the Delete button.

    • The report has been created on the desktop.
    • Next click on the ShortcutsFix

    • The report has been created on the desktop.
    Please post:

    All RKreport.txt text files located on your desktop.


    Please download ComboFix[​IMG] by sUBs

    Please save the file to your Desktop, but rename it first to svchost.exe

    Important information about ComboFix

    Before the download:
    • Please copy and paste these instructions to Notepad and save to your Desktop, or print them - for easier access.
    • It is important to rename ComboFix before the download.
    • Please do not rename ComboFix to other names, but only the one indicated.
    After the download:
    • Close any open browsers.
    • Very Important: Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results". Please visit here if you don't know how.
    • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
    • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until ComboFix has completely finished.
    • If there is no Internet connection after running ComboFix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    Running ComboFix:
    • Double click on svchost.exe & follow the prompts.
    • It will attempt to install the Recovery Console:
    • When ComboFix finishes, it will produce a report for you.
    • Please post the "C:\Combo-Fix.txt" in your next reply.
    Troubleshooting ComboFix

    Safe Mode:

    If you still cannot get ComboFix to run, try booting into Safe Mode, and run it there.

    (To boot into Safe Mode, tap F8 after BIOS, and just before the Windows
    logo appears. A list of options will appear, select "Safe Mode.")


    If this doesn't work either, try the same method (above method), but try to download it again, except name
    ComboFix.exe to iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, or winlogon.exe.

    Malware is known for blocking all "user" processes, except for its whitelist of system important processes such as iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, winlogon.exe.

    NOTE: If you encounter a message "illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion" and no programs will run - please just reboot and that will resolve that error.

    Hi there.....I can't get Rogue Killer to run....... it quits halfway through the scan, saying it has stopped working and must close now. Should I try it in safe mode, or just move on to combo fix? Please let me know. Thanks!

    Please move on to ComboFix. Sorry that failed. It's usually more reliable.
