Good job sometimes there is a rootfile in user folder too they know where to hide

Hi, read through this thread because I practically had a crippled machine with malware, ran JRT (among a lot of other steps) and esetonline scanner in safe mode and that seemed to find all the buggers (and more that I was not even aware of using other scanners)...you are in good hands here chief...good luck, and I'd just humbly offer eset online scanner (free) to do a thorough check and clean up.

Hi Devlin, assuming you were directing that question to me...

Well, had to run a number of programs, because the malware affected my entire system.

All of this was with guidance from Jacee and Andrew129260

Used AdwCleaner first, then TFC, uninstalled all Iobit programs and unnecessary programs, had to use combofix (which to my knowledge is to be used sparingly), then the esetonline free scanner...found ALL of the malware and locations that mbam and mseessentials missed.

basically cleaned up entire system and running from a state where I was almost ready to do reformat to back to optimal efficiency.

Of course, with each scan, the log files generated were the key to the overall fixing.
