While running Malwarebytes, I've encountered a virus called Yelloader that can't be quarantined or deleted. It is located in my AppData/Local folder, which also is incapable of being touched by any trojan or virus tool I run. I am certain that the issue stemed from my now uninstalled version of Utorrents (completely uninstalled as per the rules). I would really appreciate help with this- thank you!

Hello,


Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 and save it to a flash drive.
  • Now you should get a window like this where you need to click Troubleshoot.

  • In the next window, click Advanced options and select Command Prompt.
  • Now you should log in into your account and after that Command Promptwindow.
Access the notepad and identify your USB drive

In the Command Prompt please type in:
Code:
notepad
and press Enter.
  • When the notepad opens, go to File menu.
  • Select Open.
  • Go to Computer and search there for your USB drive letter.
  • Note down the letter and close the notepad.


Scan with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

Once back in the command prompt window, please do the following:
  • Type in e:\frst64.exe and press Enter.
    You need to replace e with the letter of your USB drive taken from notepad!
  • FRST will start to run. Give him a minute or so to load itself.
  • Click Yes to Disclaimer.
  • In the main console, please click Scan and wait.
  • When finished it will produce a logfile named FRST.txt in the root of your pendrive and display it. Close that logfile.

Transfer it to your clean machine and include it in your next reply.

Hello, TwinHeadedEagle. I am unsure if this is related to the malware or not, but my computer seems to be incapable of booting into advanced startup. I've tried all the possible methods I could.

Yes, I'm finding I'm even incapable of making a recovery drive.
