My son's Dell PC

Discussion in 'Malware Removal' started by fivedunns, Jan 18, 2014.

    I am trying to disinfect my son't five year old Dell PC running Vista 64bit system. About five days ago he started experiencing a boot problem. Would get through the startup and blue screen, but hung on a solid black screen every time. Disk was bootable in Safe Mode. I was able to use a command line to get to system restore and restored to an earlier date. After that I could boot, but I was still getting a lot of hangs and freezes, so I decide to go through the Majorgeeks Malware removal guide.

    In following all the procedures I could run all of the scans as outlined, except for malewarebytes, which kept freezing during the removal phase, and I'm not sure if anything was actually removed.

    • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Seven, right-mouse click it and select Run as Administrator.
    • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
    • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
    • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
    • Attach JRT.txt to your next message.

    Now run the C:\MGtools\GetLogs.bat file by double clicking on it. (Right click and run as admin if using Vista, Windows7 or Win8) Then attach the new C:\MGlogs.zip file that will be created by running this.

    Let me know of any problems you may have encountered with the above instructions and also let me know how things are running now!

    OK, I could not uninstall LiveSupport. I received the following dialog box...

    File "C:\Program Files (x86)\LiveSupport\unins000.dat" does not exist. Cannot uninstall.​

    All logs attached. Seems to be running better, and no more freezes.

    Thanks... I really appreciate your help!

    Please try Revo Uninstaller, if that fails then I have something else we can try. If it fails though, don't bother doing the below, just come back and let me know.

    Now run the C:\MGtools\GetLogs.bat file by double clicking on it. (Right click and run as admin if using Vista, Windows7 or Win8) Then attach the new C:\MGlogs.zip file that will be created by running this.
