I am trying to clean my system by referencing instructions in posts. I may have made a mistake though. Now at user logon a DOS window pops for a moment. Re: Something I think in system32 file:confused: and that a specific file it lists:confused: "was successfully removed". Did I mess something up?

What I have done before that was run scans with Avast, Malwarebytes, ESET and fixed a couple items (mywebsearch) with HJT.

Some of the problems I was having were unable to connect to the internet, web pages slow to load or will not load and just slow in general.

The random problem I still have is when my laptop boots up sometimes the screen will not come on although the system is running normal. I checked this by connecting a external monitor.

Can someone take a look and suggest the next step I should take?

Thanks

Please visit Combofix Guide & Instructions for instructions for installing the recovery console and downloading and running ComboFix.

The only thing different from the instructions there is that when downloading and saving the ComboFix.exe I would like you to rename it to Combo-Fix.exe please.

Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that along with a new HijackThis log.

Important notes regarding ComboFix:

ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making it the default browser. This can easily be changed once we're finished.

ComboFix also prevents autorun of ALL CDs, floppies and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you, please let me know. This can be undone manually when we're finished. Read HERE for an article written by dvk01 on why we disable autoruns.

Windows Defender was off until I opened it. I did turn it on and off and tried again. Still the same problem. Is there something else I may be missing? Avast, firewall,windows defender are all off.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here.

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart. (See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the entire report in your next reply.
Extra Note:

If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

:confused:I tried it twice and both times something cased it to stop working. After the first time I was turning off anti virus and firewall getting ready to try again when my system restarted on its own. The second time I ran it in safe mode.:confused:

Ok, I am not sure GMER ran properly. The first time it ran it seemed to be getting through the scan. It did not get the error "something stopped it from running" part way through like it had been. So, I left the machine for a while. When I came back to it one of my family members was checking their email, facebook, game:eek::mad:.....so I don't know if they may have disturbed the scan. It appeared it did finish.:confused: I went a head and ran the scan again and got the error something stopped it from running. Then I closed out, tried to rescan and the machine shutdown and restarted.:( On boot up my screen would not come back on. I tried two or three times to force the machine to power off and restart but the screen would not come on. I powered it off and went to bed. When I have trouble with the screen not coming on and I leave it off for a long period of time, it starts right up when I come back to it. This morning it powered up just fine, found a windows update, windows update restarted system, and I ran the scan again. Below is the result of the scan. This is the same as the first time it seemed to run through. Is the lack of info an indication that it did not scan properly? Shouldn't it be longer?:confused:

GMER 1.0.15.15077 [pupp.exe] - http://www.gmer.net

It's probably a complete scan since it goes to EOF whichis the end of the scan.

Download OTS.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTS on your desktop.
  1. Close any open browsers.
  2. If your Real protection or Antivirus interferes with OTS, allow it to run.
  3. Open the OTS folder and double-click on OTS.exe to start the program.
  4. In Additional Scans section put a check in Disabled MS Config Items and EventViewer logs
  5. Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  6. Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  7. When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  8. Save that notepad file.
Use the Reply button, scroll down to the attachments section and attach the notepad file here.

I'm sorry I didn't reply sooner but I never received a notification of your reply. Unfortunately, I may not be able to analyze that log tonight but will definitely get to it sometime tomorrow and post back with further instructions for you. :)
