Infection date: 24 maybe 25 of August 2017

Initial symptoms:
a) Firefox started trying to open "file:///C:/ProgramData/Plusdaxs/" on startup
b) Target on firefox shortcut changed to '"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" %SNF%'
c) "findit" installed as a one-click search engine
d) Some websites started showing ads "Powered by Snapdo"
e) There used to be an unknown .exe running but i don't see it anymore, maybe i removed it.

Well, i followed a similar thread called "Potentially unwanted software keeps coming back" but i've stuck at the step with the fixlist! Also, zoek was running for more than 2 hours until a blue screen came up.

I also have uploaded Addition and FRST txt files from the scan i did with Farbar
