Windows 7: Windows logon ui...

Windows logon ui...

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right thread so feel free to move it if I'm wrong.
I was hit with quite a lot of viruses, most of them were removed with Microsoft defender, and I still had one nasty virus/rootkt? so I used avz to remove it. Now I have a whole lot slower startups, 3 minutes to power to welcome, 2 minutes for welcome, and sometimes when logon ui doesn't crash 5 minutes to start explorer. when I try the cd and the repair computer it just loads up to the background image. my pc starts and after the long wait everything is a breeze, even logging out and back in. I tried sfc, that only repaired windows explorer, which now make the error show and then no more waiting 5minutes for it to load, but I'm still mad of waiting twenty minutes for the stupid thing. My specs are high. 7.1 rating, if it weren't for the hard drive (5.9), and this wasn't a problem before the viruses. Now what?

Update the definitions of your anti-virus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode.

Download, update, run a scan with SuperAntiVirus. Remove anything it finds. You may be required to reboot to finish cleaning.

Download, update, run a scan with Malwarebytes. Remove anything it finds.

Let us know if it gets any better afterwards.

I'm kind sure there aren't any viruses left, I used avz with max settings scanning everything for 5 hours. It did remove a virus. Safe mode is fine, 30 seconds longer only.

boot into safe mode with networking, then run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) from my signature below. Update MBAM and do a full scan with it.

Check add/remove programs for anything odd which installed in the last few days, such as, toolbars, etc. Remove, but if not sure we may need a screen shot. If you click on the area "Installed on" this will bring the most current to the top of the list if it is not already that way.

Look in Program Files (x86) for traces of odd listings, click on "date modified" will bring the most current to the top of the list. Don't delete anything if your not sure.

Msconfig start tab, may show you even more stuff which should not be there. If not sure, just Google the entries, one by one, to see what they are.

johnsmith, when giving Instructions, please make sure they are clear, some users are not very advanced and may not even know where Program Files (x86) are and how to get to msconfig. Also, I always recomend a screenshot so we know what we're dealing with and they're not just trying to uninstall something and make matter worse. I am glad you are trying to help out, but try to be a little more clear

So, as john was saying, while MalwareBytes is scanning, open up msconfig by opening your start orb, typing msconfig, and pressing enter. Click the Startup tab and post a screenshot using the built in Snipping Tool (it's the same instructions as in 7, so don't worry)
Also, provide a screenshot of your program list from uninstall/remove Programs.

Also, download the correct bit version of FRST and and save it to your Desktop. Click scan. Two text documents will appear on your desktop, upload them (Addition.txt and FRST.txt)

BTW: what is avz?

RedFang337, I'm a bit out of practice. It's been quite awhile since I did any forum help. I'll try to pay closer attention to detail when giving directions, as you suggested.

For myself only, I usually edit the registry to remove most Malware and Spyware. But, will certainly not recommend doing this for members needing help.

Instead, the usual process is to run multiple scanners, copy and paste logs for review. Use Command prompt to edit, remove or modify. Or something like that.

Anyway, you take the lead on this. I'll offer a suggestion if I think of something more.
