Hi,

I tried to run the Zoek tool but no code box appeared.  All that happened was a pop up appeared which said my system would reboot within a minute.  I couldn't find any log files either.

I ran ComboFix and the results are attached.

Thanks
Nick

Hi,


Could you please delete the zoek tool and download the fresh one from the links above and try to re-run zoek but this time with this zoekscript:

Code: [Select]
QuickScan;
Zoek shall preform the diagnostic and create the zoek log (C:\zoek-results.log). Please post that log here...

These set of logs are clean. There is no malicious activity.
Recommendation to reset all your browser back on their defaults. You can apply that action via their settings. Use google to find out how.


The following will implement some post-cleanup procedures:

=> Please download DelFix by Xplode to your Desktop.

Run the tool and check the following boxes below;
Remove disinfection tools
Create registry backup
Purge System Restore

Click Run button and wait a few seconds for the programme completes his work.
At this point all the tools we used here should be gone. Tool will create an report for you (C:\DelFix.txt)

The tool will also record healthy state of registry and make a backup using ERUNT program in %windir%\ERUNT\DelFix
Tool deletes old system restore points and create a fresh system restore point after cleaning.







Cheers
