Not a guru,

I am not a guru either, but, please try the following:

You may want to print these instructions so you can have access to them.
Also, you may want to read them once before you apply them.

Please plug in a USB pen drive into a working computer.

Go to the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Download
Select the download that applies to your system 64-bit
Save the program to the >> USB pen drive.
Remove USB pen drive when done.

Now, go to the problem computer.
Plug in the USB pen drive which has FRST.

Start the computer, and tap the F8 key until you get to the Advanced Boot Options
Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item

From there...
Select your language settings, and click: Next
Select your User account and click: OK (If you did not set a password, leave blank.)

On the System Recovery Options you get the following options:
Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
Scan your computer's memory for errors
Command Prompt

Select: Command Prompt

In the Command Prompt window, at the blinking cursor type notepad and press: Enter
In Notepad, under the File menu select: Open
Double-click the Computer icon on the left.
Find the pen drive letter, remember what letter it is, click on it, and press: Open
Close out of Notepad.

Click the Command Prompt window
Type x:\frst64.exe, and press: Enter
Note: Replace the drive letter x with the drive letter of your pen drive!

FRST starts, and prepares to run. Follow the prompts.
Click Yes to the Disclaimer.

Press the Scan button.

The scan runs, and, the program saves the FRST.txt, on the pen drive.

When done, click the Command Prompt window, type exit, and press: Enter

Back at the System Recovery Options, press: Shutdown
Remove the USB pen drive.

Plug the USB pen drive in the working computer, and please provide the FRST.txt in your reply.

Sure! :)

The Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) is an excellent malware diagnostic/repair tool.
It identifies malware problems, and provides the means to repair those by using scripts unique to the tool.

FRST works equally well in normal or safe mode, and where a machine has boot-up or unique problems, it works in the Windows Recovery Environment as well. It's ability to work in the Recovery Environment makes it particularly useful in dealing with difficult situations.

It is not only used in the USA, but also in many countries world wide.

Must say that it ranks very high in the malware removal community for its usefulness as a diagnostic/repair instrument.

I found RG.Mechanics and a few other things in that log, RG Mechanics specialize in pirated games etc, please note we do not promote piracy nor do we help with problems caused with the programs/games, we can help you remove virus's left behind, Every crack is a virus, in my opinion, they are harmless but im SURE other people here will strongly disagree,

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R#].txt) will open in Notepad for review (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
