Hi Jeff,

I hope everything is okay, I haven't heard from you today. I'm debating whether or not it's come time to have to reformat and reinstall Windows. I hope not though :(

Eagerly awaiting your reply!
Karen

Hi Karen,

Sorry for any delay...I have had a pretty busy day and haven't been on much, but I am looking over your logs to see what I can find.  :)

Hi,

I need some information on some unidentified files. We will use Virustotal Please submit these files for analysis

To submit a file to virustotal, please click  VirusTotal

Press Choose File and then browse to the following file: (one at a time if more than one file is listed)

C:\Users\Karen\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\service.exe

Once you locate the file select it and press Open now press Scan it!.

Now Copy/Paste the link to the results showing in the web browser bar to your next reply so that I can take a look at the results.

Please note that sometimes the scans take a few minutes. Please ensure that the scan has completed and the results are complete before submitting the next sample. Also please make sure each result is clearly identified as to which sample they belong to.

Hi Jeff,

No such file exists.. I do not have a Microsoft subfolder beneath my Roaming folder:

C:\Users\Karen\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\service.exe

Thanks,
Karen

Hi,

Let's make sure it isn't hidden first...

Click on Control Panel
Click on Folder Options
Click on View Tab

Check:
Show hidden files,folders, or drives, press OK
======================================================

***NOTE: Be sure to re-hide hidden files and folders when mission is accomplished!

Did you find the file now?

Hi Jeff,

I had already enabled that in order to even see my AppData folder in the first place. But now I went back to the Folder Options in CP to look at the other view options, and also unchecked "Hide protected operating system files". Once I UNchecked that, I was then able to see the Microsoft subfolder. But still I do NOT see service.exe file at all.

Thanks,
Karen

Hi Jeff,

Reply above is the first output from OTL.  My PC rebooted but still was hanging at "Welcome" so I had to hard shutdown again and reboot in safe mode w/ Networking. Then I ran OTL again as instructed and attached is that log.

I really hope I can reboot in normal mode at some point, starting to get a bit nervous...

Thank you,
Karen

Hi,

I understand how you can be nervous...I have been in your shoes before and know how you feel.  Try not to worry.  :)

Run ERUNT again to back up your registry and then do the following...

Run OTL.exe
  • Copy/paste the following text written inside of the code box into the Custom Scans/Fixes box located at the bottom of OTL

Code: [Select]
:Services

:Files
C:\Users\Karen\AppData\Local\blekkotb_031
C:\Users\Karen\AppData\Local\dplayx.dll

:Commands
[purity]
[emptytemp]
[start explorer]
[Reboot]
  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
  • Let the program run unhindered.  There will be a log created when it completes that I will need in your next reply.  Reboot when it is done.
  • Then run a new scan and post a new OTL log ( don't check the boxes beside LOP Check or Purity this time )
