This was a big doh, moment for me. I have been relying on Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Firewall with safe practices to keep my computer clean since the end of last year. Yet I slipped up and got infected from browsing a website. I noticed that during the infection the Adobe Flash Player installer popped up. I realized, too late, what was going on and canceled it. Of course the damage was done. A window for a fake antivirus call Security Shield popped up. MSE and Windows Firewall were disabled and I'm afraid to try and re install them in case it nukes my computer. Next my Chrome browser gave me invalid certificate errors and every browser was redirecting navigation. Java was also acting up and giving me syntax error windows. This had been happening for a while so not sure if it's a virus. I've performed backups of all my personal files and went through some other forums before landing on this one. Before using this site's READ ME, I ran the following and quarantined/deleted files when prompted. -MalwareBytes - quarantine/deleted files -Prevx - scan only -Eset online scanner -aswMBR - discovered the rootkit virus in post title -MBRcheck -Hitman Pro (not sure if it was 64bit) -TDSSKiller - came up empty I deleted and replaced my hosts file, so now it is back to its default value. So far it's fixed the browser issues, but MSE and Windows Firewall are still down. So then I follow the Major Geeks READ ME to the teeth. The only problem I ran into was that MGtools was not allowed to install into the C: directory. I work from my PC so if it's infected I risk missing deadlines and this is already costing me income. I'd like to salvage the computer if I can, but I'll do a reformat if I have to. I've attached the logs you asked for and I'll attached logs from the other programs in a second post.
