    Malwarebytes
    Operating System:
    Windows 10
    Are you using a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system?:
    64-bit (x64)
    Infection date and initial symptoms:
    April time? I'm estimating here, initial symptoms of programs being installed , e.g HDWallpapers, spam like that.
    Current issues and symptoms:
    Sound similar to recycle bin noise coming from PC itself, not from speakers/headphones
    Steps taken in order to remove the infection:
    Had a go at hijack.exe, FRST.exe, Malwarebytes scans, Autorunsx64, not performed any drastic measures, only deleting some files and uninstalling the malware
    Logs added to help request:
    • FRST.txt
    • Addition.txt
    Had a look at the google related threads with the same issue as me, however most used fix.txt files, of which I lack the experience to fashion myself.

    Any help is greatly appreciated! I know this virus to be a bugger and really just want some more experienced help, thanks in advance!

    [​IMG] Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

    [​IMG] This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. [​IMG]

    Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

    Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

    • Right-click on [​IMG] icon and select [​IMG] Run as Administrator to start the tool.
      (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
    • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
    • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
    • When finishes FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

    Please attach it to your reply.

    Still making the 'recycle bin' like noise from the PC, Also on boot, after reaching the Windows 10 login screen, no interface comes up to be able to login. Only after restarting does it boot straight to the desktop, (Which I expect since I've disabled the password login screen)
    In terms of malware, No reg keys are being detected anymore, or possible malware.exe files during Malwarebyte scans, which is good to know, thanks for that :)

    Your computer is clean. I don't know what could be the cause. Let's do this:


    Check Disk
    • Press the [​IMG] on your keyboard. Type cmd and right click >> Run as Administrator.
    • Copy/Enter the command below and press Enter:
    • Code:
      chkdsk C: /r
    • You should get a message to schedule Check Disk at next system restart. Please type Y and press Enter.
    • All you should do now is to restart your PC and let the Check Disk process finish uninterrupted.
    Check Disk report:
    • Press the [​IMG] + R on your keyboard at the same time. Type eventvwr and click OK.
    • In the left panel, expand Windows Logs and then click on Application.
    • Now, on the right side, click on Filter Current Log.
    • Under Event Sources, check only Wininit and click OK.
    • Now you'll be presented with one or multiple Wininit logs.
    • Click on an entry corresponding to the date and time of the disk check.
    • On the top main menu, click Action > Copy > Copy Details as Text.
    • Paste the contents into your next reply.
