Um, are you asking if I have a file sitting on my desktop called virtool blah blah? No. Just normal shortcuts and stuff.

Haha, wait, wut? My comp is still blue screening pretty regular, and I've been using Microsoft's tech support for the last two days, so without waiting 2 hours for the scan to finish, I feel like I can say pretty confidently that the virus is still there.

And

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUNOnce

Zibeltor,

Let's see if we can get to the root of the problem...

Please download RogueKiller:
Tlcharger RogueKiller (Site Officiel)

When you get to the website, go to where it says:
(Download link) Lien de téléchargement

Select the version that applies to your system: x64
Click the dark-blue button that applies.
Save to the Desktop

Close all windows and browsers
Right-click RogueKiller and select 'Run as Administrator'

Press: SCAN

When done, a report opens on the Desktop: RKreport.txt

Please provide the RKreport.txt (Mode: Scan) in your reply.
(Please do not delete anything!)



Game plan:
If RogueKiller does not show the problem, there is one more diagnostic that would like to run to find it.

Read a couple threads and got a little head start. I ran Adwcleaner and am attaching the log from that and currently running TFC. I want to make sure its 100% gone and any other malware too. Would the next step be running an ESET scan?
