Windows 7: Something trying to open in Chrome, i dont have chrome

Something trying to open in Chrome, i dont have chrome

So I just noticed today that something popped up saying chrome could not open or something like that,,, then I checked my taskmanager and saw all these zgkhhxeatx.exe entries trying to load and register something,,, I do not have chrome on my C: drive I never had it installed! it may have been on my storage drive in some old systems I have backed up though. Anyhow I figured out that it was something running at start up and heres the entries I found from CCleaner start up list.
No HKCU:Run Lhnjmig Microsoft Corporation regsvr32.exe /s "C:\Users\Brze\AppData\Local\NPE\Lhnjmig.dll"
I disabled the entry from starting and everything is fine,,, When I went to the service from my taskmanager it brought me inside a few folders in my LocalLow folder then something like erniesbrowserlist or something like that, I don't have an ernie or know an ernie,,, am I safe with this disabled or do I need to run something to scrub whatever these files are in the local low folder/s?
The only thing I have done or installed on this pc in the last 24hrs was I updated my flash player and my java because both were out of date.
Im sure someone knows what this stuff is but searches brought up nothing!!

JRockZ,

Let's see what the following shows...

Please use the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool.
Download: Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Download
Select the version that applies to your system.
Save it to your Desktop.
Double-click the downloaded file to run it.
When the tool opens, click Yes to the disclaimer.

Press the Scan button.

When done, the tool makes a log, FRST.txt, in the same directory from which the tool is run (Desktop).

Please provide the FRST.txt in your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it also creates another log: Addition.txt

Also post the Addition.txt in your reply.

Yes.

Please, temporarily disable Norton, or make it allow FRST to run.

JRockZ,

It is rather difficult to work without sufficient information, and I do not work via Private Messages.

You have a Poweliks entry showing in the brief info provided. Recent (Nov 2014) info on this malware shows that it employs a new autostart mechanism and removes users’ privileges in viewing the Registry’s content.



Let's see if the following takes care of it...

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit:
Download > Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit Download
•Save to your Desktop.
•Double-click the icon to start the tool.
(Warning! Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit needs to be run from an account with Administrator rights.)
•In the Introduction screen, click: Next
•On the Update Database screen, click Update to download the latest definitions, and then click: Next
•Once the update is complete select Next, and click: Scan
•When the scan is finished, if no malware is found select: Exit
•If malware is detected, check all items and click: Cleanup
•Reboot your computer.

Please open the MBAR folder and provide the content of the following reports in your reply:
mbar-log-{date} (xx-xx-xx).txt
system-log.txt

Did you use Cleanup and reboot? Or, did you just Scan?

Need to see the reports after the Cleanup and reboot.

Also, please include both reports requested:

mbar-log-{date} (xx-xx-xx).txt
system-log.txt


Also, have you run Nolrton Power Eraser (NPE) recently?

Used clean up and reboot,,,,, Attached the log above that it took then and now attaching after a rescan and nothing found. that's all ive had time for here are the logs.

I did start power eraser but I did not run it I came here before I let it scan, I may have also run it once before a month or two ago but I forget for sure if I did or did not.

AND tonight after starting the PC I have been getting a pop up that something again is trying to start in my locallow folder I Did a re-boot and so far that's not popped back up,,, if it does I will post a screen shot but its user account control saying something's wanting to start, not something I tried to start or run.

Well, this type of issue does not lend itself to guessing. The best tool for the job is the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool, and attach its results.

Otherwise, all I can do is speculate that there is 'something' in C:\Users\*\AppData\LocalLow\etc., etc.

If you wish to run FRST, feel free to do so, and there will be something to work with to develop a script and take care of whatever it shows.

If you do not wish to do so, someone else will have to assist you, I will not.

Your system, your choice.
