Windows 7: BSOD Random but usually games

I thought I'd show you these screenshots. I'm not sure how to use this yet, and I haven't. I was just looking at the menus. The manual tab I can tune it, I just slide it down the bar?
One interesting thing or not is when I started my computer today I got a BSOD that was related to the creative soundblaster card but it went away when I rebooted.

Jessicka, it's really hard to read the settings on the pictures you uploaded. Not really a big deal though. After having reinstalled the Intel E.T.U. it is possible that the overclock reset to base. Please upload the first tab of CPUz. BTW, how's stability been lately? Anymore Blue Screens?

This is about to take a crazy turn but...

I was looking on various webpages for information about the Intel Tuning issue and suddenly MSE went off and my pc got flooded with some system failure message or something. When I rebooted I kind of knew it was a virus issue because they wanted me to buy some software to fix it. (Safemode didn't work but normal booting did)

I ran unhide which let rkill run for some reason without failing to stop the windows failure pop-ups

I ran mbam and it detected nothing same with tdsskiller

Hitman pro found just a Hosts file problem and disconnected from the internet. I waited hours for it to come back but it didn't so I rebooted.. was reinfected but regained my connection. Ran everything again and still haven't removed it. Taskbar all messed up etc.

is there something I can run that will kill this virus/malware because mbam isn't finding anything like all.

I didn't go to sleep until very late and left my pc running since shutting it down just caused everything to come back.

Fakerean removal tool is probably your best bet. Let us know if that removes it for you.

Yeah that stopped it, thanks. Everything is different still though. System tray or taskbar area, the icons are all over. What should run at this point? Malwarebytes still isn't finding anything.

Not sure what you mean by the icons being all over. Can you post a screenshot to give an example?

It just a bit different.

Is there any more cleaning I should do? I read this virus moves shortcuts and other things to the temp folder. Some strange defogger entry , might be what RKill did though.

Okay thanks for the quick reply. I will run these right now and post back as soon as it's done.

I hope both you guys get paid for this, your dedication to helping me is really unexpected and I am grateful.



As for when I was hunting down info on that tuning program and Alienware/Dell... I won't be doing that again. The CPU-Z program still looks exactly like the screenshot I initially posted. I haven't played any games yet since this happened and I was mostly working.

Anyway, I will post back soon with the info requested from this sfc /scannow scan.

You're welcome. If you want to hunt down info more safely, you should get a program that tells you if you are about to visit a questionable site. I use WebOfTrust: Safe Browsing Tool | WOT (Web of Trust)

You should also block the 3rd party cookies in your browsers.
