Preferred Solution: Malware- L3av380- 2017-05-24

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Malware- L3av380- 2017-05-24

I am not finding any malware in your logs.

However, run this:

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.

Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Vista/Windows 7/8 and 10 users right-click and select Run As Administrator
Click on the Scan button.
AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R#].txt) will open in Notepad for review (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
Attach the logfile to your next reply.
A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Answer:Malware- Compaq- 2017-08-17

I am not finding any malware in your logs. If you are having issues, I suggest you post in another forum.

Since you are not having any malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:

We recommend you keep Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware.
Renable your Disk Emulation software with Defogger if you had disabled it in step 4 of the READ & RUN ME.
Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis. If you don't see it or it will not uninstall, don't worry about it. Just move on to the next step.
If running Vista, Win 7 or Win 8 or 10, it is time to make sure you have reenabled UAC by double clicking on the C:\MGtools\enableUAC.reg file and allowing it to be added to the registry.
Now goto the C:\MGtools folder and find the MGclean.bat file. Double click ( if running Vista, Win7, or Win 8 Right Click and Run As Administrator ) on this file to run this cleanup program that will remove files and folders related to MGtools and some other items from our cleaning procedures.
Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:

Answer:Malware- Jpew- 2017-05-10

This is more than likely not a malware problem. This PC is running a very old, out of date, and unsupported operating system (Win XP SP3 ). In addition, it has too little memory to even run it properly. Logs show:
Code:

Total Physical Memory 512.00 MB
Available Physical Memory 262.42 MB
And to make things worse there are too many protection programs installed and running. I see all of the below:

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition
Client Security Solution
COMODO Internet Security
Internet Security Essentials
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware version 2.2.1.1043
Spybot - Search & Destroy
SpywareBlaster 5.5
SUPERAntiSpyware

I would start by uninstalling all of the above and see if your situation changes. It is possible that you may have a problem uninstalling some of them while in safe boot mode.

Hi - I was using Zemana Anti Malware fine for several months but a recent update to the program is flagging it as unsafe by Kaspersky. I ended up uninstalling Zemana before I realized it was a false positive and I'm not sure if I was to reinstall it if I would have the same problem. I also was using a free 1 year license and I forget what that code was..

Anyway, any suggestions for another anti malware that works nicely with Kaspersky? Preferably free or with a deal going on.. I won't use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 3.0.. tried it and nothing but issues.

Anyone have experience using VoodooShield along side Kaspersky? And do they play nice?

thanks,

Pros
Excellent scores in our malware blocking and malicious URL blocking tests. Good scores in lab tests. Effective behavior-based detection can even spot ransomware. Clean, simple user interface.
Cons
So-so score in our antiphishing test. Behavior-based detection warns about both valid programs and malware.
Bottom Line
Hence the name, Emsisoft Anti-Malware focuses on the core task of keeping your PCs free of malware. It does a good job, and with a clean, simple interface, it looks good too.

Answer:PcMag Emsisoft Anti-Malware 2017

First time that I see a decent review of Emsisoft. Always "lacking in phishing protection" but I think that is not their main priority. Use avira or avast extension on your favorite browser and let Emsisoft make the job against malware.

Twenty-one security products, including free and paid AVs, suites and business end point protection were tested.
The Malware Protection Test is an enhancement of the File Detection Test which was performed in previous years. This Malware Protection Test checks not only the detection rates of the participating programs, but also their protection capabilities, i.e. the ability to prevent a malicious program from actually makingchanges to the system.The test set used for this test consisted of 37,999 malware samples, assembled after consulting telemetry data with the aim of including recent, prevalent samples that are endangering users in the field. The tests were performed on a 64-Bit Microsoft Windows 10 Professional system. Both online and offline detection rates, and false positive detections are reported.
Results, in pdf format, are here:www.av-comparatives.org/.../avc_mpt_201703_en.pdf
Comments:
All products detected/protected greater than 99% of threats. Not surprising, when so many samples were used, the majority of which would be known to the vendors.
The free AVs (Panda, Avast, AVG and Windows Defender) all held their own against the paid products/suites. Windows Defender had no false positives, followed closely by Panda Free AV with only one FP.

Answer:AV-Comparatives Malware Protection Test March 2017

Some more comments:
1) Panda Free did extremely well in the ONLINE aspects of this test --- even [a tad] better than avast/avg.   However, being a CLOUD-based antivirus, it was severely hampered when limited to its offline-only capability.   Anyone who doesn't have a decent internet connection (which hopefully is a rare condition nowadays) should keep this in mind.
2) The numbers for avg & avast were IDENTICAL throughout this test.   This should not come as a surprise, since avast acquired avg, and has been combining their background features, including sharing a common definition database.   Apparently, the only significant difference between avast and avg is cosmetic:  their appearance via their user interface.   avast/avg performed well even in offline-only mode.   But they did suffer from more than just "a few" false positives... which resulted in their test-rating being lowered to "advanced" (vs. Panda's "advanced+").
3) While Microsoft had no F/P's, its detection/protection numbers placed it in statistical "cluster 3", which clearly separates it (at least, in terms of this particular test) from Panda, avast & avg, which were all grouped together in [the highest] "cluster 1".

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Emsisoft is proud to announce our new build with the Firewall Fortification feature:

As announced earlier, we are changing our firewall strategy and will soon merge Emsisoft Internet Security with Emsisoft Anti-Malware, effective as of our next release in October. Instead of developing our own firewall module, we?re going to rely on the built-in Windows Firewall core that has proven to be powerful and reliable. Its only weak point is the fact that anyone can freely change the firewall configuration. In other words, if malware manages to run on the PC with sufficient administrator permissions, it?s able to allow itself to get through the firewall.

To resolve this vulnerability, we?ve developed a new Firewall Fortification feature for Emsisoft Anti-Malware?s Behavior Blocker as part of our 2017.8 release. Firewall Fortification detects and intercepts malicious actions from non-trustworthy programs in real time before they can cause any damage.Click to expand...

In September 2016, we started adding to Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) a malware suite of browser modifiers and other Trojans installed by software bundlers. We documented how the malware in this group install other malware or applications silently, without your consent. This behavior ticks boxes in the evaluation criteria that Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) uses for identifying unwanted software. Installing software without your permission, interaction, or consent is considered unwanted behavior because that can take away the choice you should have in determining what applications to install on your computer.

By October 2016, MSRT detected and removed most of the malware families in this suite:
Sasquor, which changes browser search and homepage settings to circumvent the browser?s supported methods and bypass your consent, and can install other malware like Xadupi and Suweezy
SupTab, which also changes browser search and homepage settings, and installs services and scheduled tasks that regularly install additional malware
Suweezy, which attempts to modify settings for various antivirus software, including Windows Defender, creating a significant danger to your computer?s overall security
Xadupi, which registers a service that regularly installs other apps, including Ghokswa and SupTab, and is ostensibly an update service for an app that has some user-facing functionality: CornerSunshine displays weather information on the taskbar, WinZipp... Read more

Hello,
On my Windows 10 pro PC, I'm running (BDTS 2017 + Voodoo Shield Pro + Malwarebytes 3), and this combo is very smooth for me, but when I saw the results of MT tests here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Bitdefender Report - March 2017 and here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Kaspersky Report - March 2017, I think that these tests demonstrated that Kaspersky did a better job then Bitdefender

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

Thank you in advance.

Answer:Avast 2017 vs AVG 2017

Hey man. Of the two I would choose Avast, much more reliable and customizable.
My personal choice is Bitdefender though. I believe you could do some research on Youtube so that you form your own opinion. Here are some interesting channels:

A top quote :

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

These are all common sense tips but...

"When a Chrome extension is removed from the store, the developer of that extension can then submit a new version that doesn't violate the Chrome web store terms. If that new version is ready, they can submit it on his store dashboard page. However, because they violate the Chrome web store program. This extension will also get a manual review by a Google employee, to check if they meet Chrome web store guideline (that takes 48 hours). If OK, then you see the Chrome extension back in the store.

Hi all,

About a week after my last visit I noticed a browser hijack. I opened a page and in just under a second the browser loaded a page claiming to be a Firefox update page, and it popped up a download window asking me to download a javascript file. It's been busy at work so I haven't had time to deal with this, but today it happened again and I was in the middle of typing in another application when this download popup took over and I'd hit the spacebar before I knew what was going on. So now I probably have something malicious and definitely need to make time to deal with this crap again.

Answer:M2.SSD Does not appear on Acronis TI 2017

The Chipset 8910 M2 drivers are not native to windows. You need to talk with Acronis about mass storage drivers.  There is support from Dell for Windows PE and DISM but it is not free.
Imaging using anything other than windows PE 10 and Microsoft Tools
is not supported by Dell or Microsoft. When you deploy a duplicated or imaged Windows installation, it is required that the System Preparation (Sysprep) tool is used before the capture of the image.
Dependencies
   You must run Windows Setup before you use Sysprep.
   You need a tool to capture an image of the installation, such as Microsoft DISM

My favourite free alternative in Chrome used to be ZenMate. I have some friends who use Hola free vpn but I've never tried it so I'm not sure it's any good. Well, it depends on what you want it for.

I Just bought a 2017 XPS 13 ; Touchscreen Model ; i7 Processor with 16 GB of RAM 
and this *** machine is a toaster! 
Its just out of the box with windows 10 Pre Installed and its heating with or without the power plugged in. 
It  is getting hot to the point where I cannot use it anymore ( At the Table or in my lap ) 
Also on a full charge the battery capacity is reflecting as 3 hours and 30 minutes only. 
Is it normal? How do I fix this? I have done the BIOS update , System Firmware Upgrade etc. and everything is up to date. Tried reinstalling windows and also tried with the power saver mode but issue still persists. 
What to do?

Answer:XPS 13 , 2017 OVERHEATING!

You don't mention which XPS 13 you have but my 9365 gets warm when something is working.  Anti-virus scans, system maintenance and others will heat the system even when you are not using it.
My system will get to 112 F near the back and mostly on the left side.

Not sure if this is the result of the ?Creator Update or coincidental hardware fail.
Yesterday my HP6735S laptop running W10 Home since last year was offered an update from v1607 (I think) to the latest. I allowed this to go ahead and waited .. and waited for about 4.5 hours all told.
Eventually it finished and after logging in again it appeared to be working.
After being left for a while it turned itself off - as normal.
I then tried to turn it on with the following result:-
Blue power light ON
WiFi LED Orange (Off)
HDD activity LED flashing Orange (Normally Blue)
DVD drive seeming to try accessing (Empty at the time)
Display Blank
Caps Lock LED flashing occasionally
Pressing and holding the power button turns Off as normal.
Tried removing battery and starting with adapter - same.
Tried putting in W10 *.iso DVD - same.
I can read the HDD in a caddy on another PC and it seems to be OK
(Except the small (100M) system partition reports empty)
I have 3 normal partitions:
Windows 7 (~100G)
Windows 10 (~100G)
Data (~500G)
I usually had to select W7 or W10 at start up.
Unfortunately I cannot run your SysInfo utility for obvious reasons.
Procesor is dual core AMD Turion X2 64bit with 4G RAM (2 x 2G)
Laptop came with (250G HDD)/Vista originally which I replaced with XP.
The HDD was later replaced with 1T HGST and installed W7.
W10 was installed using the code from W8 (bought) as a dual boot.
Any ideas?

Question: End of Vista 2017

I understand that Vista finishes in 2017. Can you expand on this for me?

I have Home Premium 32 bit at present and Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor seems to recognise only minor adjustments to be made. Would you suggest I upgrade now or wait until Vista ends?

Answer:End of Vista 2017

It will be just like XP. What it basically means is that there will be no updates from Microsoft for it. Vista will still work just like xp does still work.

If your happy with Vista then you can continue to use it for the rest of your life if you want.

What I recommend though is that do not use internet explorer use another browser. if you use it after the finish date as it will be vunerable and make sure you have a firewall and AV software protecting your system, but you should have that now anyway.

I think the only things wrong with this years thinkpad is the battery life and screen brightness, here I have a few things that lenovo can improve on to step up their game and create the best 14 inch business class laptop in the world. 1. Increasing screen brightness to at least 400 nits as it is very dim compared to competition and outside work it becoming a pain.2. Increase that battery life to 18-20 hours in your tests, which will lead to about 10 hours of real worlds usage even if it means not being as light maybe back to the 2.8lbs of last year. As this years 11 hours isn't very long in real world usage compared to the likes of maybe Dell XPS or even Apple.3. Bring back the full SD card reader (which atm I dont see an issue with the microSD, people have complained).4. Try using intel Iris graphics instead of HD graphics as its more powerful, costs around the same and people will appriciate it more. I hope users agree with what I am saying and even though its far away I can say im looking forward to what the 5th Gen X1 Carbon has in store for us!

Hey guy's this post is to get information and thoughts about the current GPU market

#1 I find it highly ridiculous the new GPU's released are so hard to get in retail it's making me wonder why it's so hard ?
A: Are Vendors purposely messing with stock ?
B: Is this newer GPU that worth it to get or is next Generation a better choice TI on up
C: Does anyone with a G-sync monitor feels there wouldn't be any difference from your last years flavor 970,980 980ti

#2 How much are you willing to pay and what brand you prefer ?

#3 Last question do you feel Nvidia will stop improving Maxwell based on Pascal being a main focus ?

Thoughts and sorry for the massive Novel

Answer:The Demand for GPU's 2016-2017

A:I dont think so demand for aftermarket stuff is massive founders edition cards are pretty easy to get though , and apart from poor cooling are actually tending to clock higher (NVidia cherry picked for founders)??
B:For me with a 980TI no , im not pay700 quid for 25% increase in fps when its mostly over 100 already waiting for TI
C:I have the same monitor as you , but i dont understand what your asking?

EVGA and ill see how the aftermarket ti's price after launch

yes i beleive maxwell has hit its limit as far as driver improvements go and DX12 is a massive let down so far

Hi All, I would like to check the stability of the X1 Carbon 2017, if it's still as problematic as what I've read from the various threads: trackpad issues, thunderbolt ports issues, etc.  I've just returned a Yoga 370, supposed to be Mil specs but delivered faulty right out of box. As a form of resolution and customer retention, Lenovo has recommended and offered to swap to a X1 Carbon or T470 as what they claimed to be stable laptops.  I would like to to seek your opinions on this before deciding whether to go ahead with another Lenovo. I'm really keen to move on to other companies since the customer service rendered, active following up and updates has not really been that satisfactory.  I would like to hear you guys out first before deciding.  Thanks in advance

My plan is to replace my old samsung phone with a new phone.I like the windows phone platform and it satisfies all my basic needs(mail checking, using skype and whatsapp, managing office files)if i bought it. My question is can i buy a lumia phone (lumia 640 xl) now and i cant afford a surface phone as it costs higher to my budget.How long microsoft wiil support windows 8.1 and windows 10.Can it provide support minimum for five years. how long will whatsapp support in lumia phones?

Answer:Can i buy a Lumia phone in 2017?

I just bought a Lumia 640XL a few days ago.
8.1 is very long in the tooth these days and has for the most part become unsupported as far as apps.
Windows 10 mobile is still supported and growing for now.
I can't say for sure if support for 5 years is going to happen.
All we can do is go with the flow for now.

Gentlemen -again I am having a problem with Windows 7 and now the newly installed Office 2017. I seem to have corrupted files somewhere on the system . I used Advanced System Care Ultimate to find the errors and correct them. If finds errors but does not seem to get rid of them even after acknowledging them. When I restart the computer I get the search for systems page as windows won't start properly and it corrects some problems then it actually starts the second time. I have had BSOD related to dump files? and now the whole system is so slow I can take walks while it starts a program - any program, outlook, excel, whatever. So I need someone with more knowledge than I to help me fix this mess. So I go to you.
I have Malwarebytes and ASCU installed on this computer.
Let me know what files are needed to decipher the problem and get the computer back to normal.
Thanks

This advisory says, concerning an Outlook vulnerability:
Exploitation of this vulnerability requires that a user open a specially crafted
file with an affected version of Microsoft Outlook. In an email attack
scenario, an attacker could exploit the vulnerability by sending a specially crafted file to the user and then convincing the user to open the file.
The wording is a bit confusing ? by ?file? do they mean the email message itself or an attached file that you?d have to open? If just clicking on the email to preview or open it can trigger the code, I find that more worrisome than if the user must open
an attachment.
Thanks,
Eric
