NoeIDP,

I am asking again out of curiosity.... have you review my lest set of logs uploaded and come up with some additional ideas to try? Would like to get this issue resolved.

Sorry - real life keeps getting in the way

I'm a little dazed actually by the mass of AV residuals present!
I think the best thing to do is to run the respective cleanup tools and hope that we can clear everything up.

1) Norton...
Download the Norton Removal Tool from here https://www-secure.symantec.com/nort...=1&pvid=f-home

Close all other programs, then run the tool. When it's complete, reboot the machine whether it asks for it or not.

After the reboot, open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command

NETSH WINSOCK RESET

You'll be advised to reboot - do so.
then post another MGADiag report.

2) AVG
AVG | Download tools and utilities
download and run all relevant removers from there - (AVG Remover 32- AND 64-bit, Identity Protection remover) - rebooting in between, and again at the end, then run the WINSOCK reset again.

3) ZoneAlarm
http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...load/clean.exe
run the download as an Admin, and reboot.

4) Avira
Uninstall in the usual way, then run their cleanup tool...
Instructions for manual uninstallation

Again, run the WINSOCK reset and reboot.

At least for the time being, then install MSE so that we have a base install

How do things work now?

NoeIDP,


****> No doubt, I understand "real life" getting in the way of things - THANKS for your on-going help.


I ran the Norton uninstaller and it ran for a few minutes and required a reboot.

<Rebooted>
<Opened cmd prompt as Administrator>
<NETSH WINSOCK RESET>
<Rebooted>

Created MGADiag report (I think I did it right)

Moving on to the rest of the removals. However, AVG has a bunch of removal tools and I do not see / know exactly which on I had installed.

NoeIDP....

NO dice!

Did all of the steps, BITS remains in an "blank" status and "Automatic (Delayed)" startup type.

Even tried to start the service by myself, but get the same - (negative) error code message.

The Avira uninstall, I did not have any folders found. The registry cleaner did not find anything in the registry (selected all products).

** is it time to "give up" and remove my HDD, put in an external case, copy the files (user folder) to another HDD via a USB connection and the Windows "Easy Transfer" program. Then reformat the HDD, install my factory WIN 7 Home Premium install. Then re-transfer the files (user folder) from the other HDD back to the laptop HDD?

Not yet - please post a set of Event logs, and we'll see what it looks like now.

Open Event Viewer
click on the Windows logs entry in the left pane to expand it.
Now click on the Application entry - wait while it loads.
Click on 'File' in the menu bar and select Save...
Save the file as Appevt.evtx
Repeat for the System log
then zip both, and upload them.

You appear to be having problems with the CFMRD filter driver - from Comodo.
If you no longer have Comodo software installed, uninstall the driver from the Device Manager entry there.
If you do have Comodo installed, uninstall it and run their cleanup tool

NoeIDP....

I looked in the device manager (including viewing the "Show Hidden Devices") but I cannot find anything called: CFMRD Filter Driver.

**To the best of my knowledge, I do not have anything installed that is related to Comodo.
- under C:\Program Files\Comodo I have TWO folders
1) Comodo Programs Manager dated 06/27/2015 - 1 file: cu_comp.dat 6 KB
2) Comodo System Utilities dates 10/01/2015
- under C:\Program Files (x86) NO folders for Comodo - but do for others:
1) Norton PC Checkup dated 03/26/2013
2) NortonInstaller dated 07/22/2015
3) Slim Cleaner dated 08/15/2015 (with a Service & Startup Database file)??
- under C:\ProgramData I have some folders/files:
1) AVG Secure Search
2) NortonInstaller dated 08/15/2015 with 2 folders
3) OO Software dated 08/13/2015 with 2 Windows Installer Packages
4) TDSSkiller dates 09/12/2015

================

Nothing in the All Programs >> Folder display for Comodo -or- any programs listed in the start menu.

The only thing I find in the Services w/in the Admin Tools related to Comodo is:
"Comodo LPS Launcher (Comodo LivePCSupport Launcher) /
Status=blank, Startup Type=Disabled, Logon As=Local System

**But I do have "bunches" of different "greyed" items within the device manager - should I go thru and UNINSTALL / delete all of these "greyed" items from the device manager?

**I probably did a NO-NO, but I downloaded & Installed Comodo System Utilities FREE
- looking at the "autoruns" >> Drivers
- I now see "CFRMD" info follows:
v6.1.7600.16385 built by: WinDDK
Windows (R) Win 7 DDK provider
unsigned

Start Type: System (drop-down values Boot, System, Automatic, Demand, Disable)
Error: Normal (drop-down values Severe, Critical, Ignore, Normal)
Type: MiniFilter (drop-down values Driver, FileSystem, MiniFilter)
Order in Group: (drop-down values 1 thru 21)
Load Group: FSFilter Activity Monitor (several other options in drop-down)
Depend on Group: (several options I have NO clue what they mean)
Altitude: 370,031 Flags: 0
Status: Started
----------------------------------------------------------------
[ Stop ] [ Unregister ] [ Remove ]

Any suggestions?

Here is a link to "FreeFixer" info:
What is cfrmd.sys?

Here is another link (probably unreliable):

NoeIDP,


Man I hate it when real life interferes with your "duties" to us LOST & confused Win 7 users...

Do you have an update to my last post?

Uninstalling Comodo would be a good start - then delete any remaining references in the driver listing in Device manager. (which should remove the entry from autoruns)
If it's still present, you may need to do some registry hacking to get rid of the links forcing it.
