Malware removal help / Re: Proxy Virus - need help eliminating

ok....again thank you very much.   I didnt think it came from my behavior, it sounds like MS's behavior more and that I'll need to lean on their recommendations.

Hi, themetallikid

You may have some clues with the windowsupdate.log file : Windows Update log files.

Please keep in mind that you may have to generate it and that it contains many information.
There should be a KB associated to the upgrade, but since I don't follow the Windows 10 lifecycle closely I don't know which one you should look for.

Regards.

Hi themetallikid,

Yes, probably : Microsoft is starting to auto-update Windows 10 Home, Pro users on 1803 or older to 1903.
Older builds of Windows 10 Home Edition did not have the option to pause updates.

Regards.

Hi themetallikid,

If you didn't experience issues before, corruption of the system may have happened during the upgrade to Windows Version 1903 (19H1). I have seen multiple computers experiencing unexpected behaviour after such upgrades, so it may be the case here.

No, I don't think you will experience catastrophic issues, only erratic behaviour.
However, please be sure to regularly make backup of your personal files on an external hard drive. I was not able to exactly determine what the issue is, so better be safe than sorry.

Thanks for your kind words.

Regards.

man, that sucks....do you have any ideas how/why this could have happened?  I literally use this to pay bills, run sound for my band and run some football pools. 

And its been fine til a few months ago....


With what is 'not' repaired at this point is there a risk of any catastrophic issues?  or is whats not working a minimal thing and for lack of a better word...cosmetic? 

I'll follow up on a windows forum, and great appreciate your help and expertise in trying to assist me.

Hi themetallikid,

It seems the repair was unsuccessful.
I hate to say this, but I'm now out of idea.

So, I advise you to open a new thread describing the issues you are experiencing with your system in a Windows repair specialized forum. You will find there people more qualified than me in this area of expertise. If you do so, please attach the latest CBS and DISM logfiles, it will help them to better understand the state of your system as is it now.

I'm sorry I wasn't able to help you with this.

Regards.

I went back and tried to rerun the program, it kept wanting to update and wouldnt let me run it.  so I deleted it, and clicked the link to reinstall it.

I ran as administrator, i did not get the pop up this time at the beginning.  However...It ran, and I got the same results....

started the scan as admin (right click, run as admin)...let it do its thing, at the end it said that the FRST log was created in the same directory as the .exe (or something similar to what you posted....it then opened a notepad window with an error, and another window that said created addition.txt file in the same directory as FRST.  Only button to click on was ok, which then brought the 'active' window to the 2nd notepad screen, which is blank...with an error that says could not locate the frst.txt file...do I want to create one?  I click yes, and both notepads are blank....

Hi themetallikid,

It looks way better.
Could you please try to run FRST again ?

Regards.
