"reddie.net/blackfight.info/epifactory.com" Malware on PC
« on: March 09, 2015, 10:01:34 PM »
This morning upon re-plugging in my USB Wifi Adapter, Avast alerted me that it had blocked malware from svchost.exe. I've heard of this issue before and after seeing all the fixes you guys have provided to users with this same problem, I knew this was the best place to find a solution of course :D

Attached are the assisted log files you requested for this fix.

Thanks

Subject to no further problems   :)

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems 

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean  :thumbsup:

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset  System Restore points:

Remove tools

Download and run Delfix



Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

CryptoPrevent install this programme to lock down and prevent crypto ransome ware



Malwarebytes.

Update and run weekly to keep your system clean

Unchecky

Click on the link above to be taken to Unchecky.com
click the very large Download button.
click Save
Click Open folder
Right click on the Unchecky_setup and choose to Run as Administrator
Once open click the Install button.
Then click on Finish
Unchecky is now installed and will help you keep unwanted check boxes unchecked, this is a fire and forget programme  ;)

It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.
