    Hello guys! Hope I can get some expert help on this nasty malware. Microsoft essensials continuously displays an error that the system needs to restart upon bootup and the laptop shuts itself down. It takes about 60 seconds so that doesn't leave much time to run any scans. Running in safemode does the same so that doesn't help.
    By reading other threads, I've ran Farbar and have attached the FRST.txt here.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Welcome to MajorGeeks, D12u :)

    [​IMG] Boot to System Recovery Options and run FRST again.
    Type the below bolded text in the edit box after "Search:".


    Then click the Search button.

    It will make a log (Search.txt) on the flash drive. Please attach this log to your next reply. (How to attach)

    NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system

    Attached is fixlist.txt
    • Save fixlist.txt to your flash drive.
    • You should now have both fixlist.txt and FRST64.exe on your flash drive.

    Now re-enter System Recovery Options.
    Run FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
    The tool will make a log on the flashdrive (Fixlog.txt).
    Please attach this to your next message. (How to attach)

    Now attempt to boot normally and remember to attach your Fixlog.txt.

    Now continue with this procedure: How to Remove Trojan:DOS/Alureon.A

    Thanks for your great advice!! Now I can access the computer without it restarting. Fixlog is attached.

    I will run malwarebytes offline and run a full scan
    Should I remove MS Essensials and reinstall?
