Hi , Abinash...! Welcome to MalwareTips ..! :)

Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST)

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system, download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, and that will be the right version.

  • Right-click FRST.exe/FRST64.exe then click "Run as administrator"
  • When the tool opens, click Yes to the disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • When finished, it will produce logs called FRST.txt and Addition.txt in the same directory the tool was run from.
  • Please copy and paste the logs in your next reply.
---------------------------------------------------

In your next reply, please include:

  • FRST.txt
  • Addition.txt

Hi , Abinash . ..! I'm sorry for the late answer, but I'm engaged in new projects and I don't have time for the forum ..! I reviewed your diaries and no obvious signs of an active Malware infection in your logs. What I will recommend is :

Clean Boot
  • Press the Windows Key + R. Type msconfig and click on OK.
  • msconfig will now open. Click on the Services tab, then check the Hide all Microsoft services box. Select Disable all.
  • Click on the Startup tab, then select Open Task Manager. In Task Manager, navigate to the Startup tab. Select each startup item and click Disable until all are disabled.
  • Close the Task Manager and return to MSConfig. Click OK and restart the computer.
  • Test your computer performance. Please let me know if your problems are still present in this mode
