Because Norton Power Eraser uses aggressive methods to detect threats, there is a risk that it can select some legitimate programs for removal. If you accidentally remove a legitimate program, you can run Norton Power Eraser to review past repair sessions and undo them.
I think sticking to the advice and guidance of cottonball would be best.
Assumes that the OS will boot ;-(

I agree, wait for cottonball.

Our comments are not meant to discourage you from helping in threads... but the infection of system files (if that is indeed what the OP has) is best handled slowly, by less automated tools.

Hey i'm a safe guy too!..maybe xD!

Yeah following Cottonballs instruction is always a good way to go! Knows his stuff!

Yep; but unless cottonball is known to be away for a while...
...there is not much reason to change horses midstream

You have some adware, but wait for cottonball to get back to you for the 'fix'

Based on the VirusTotal results, it makes one wonder about the validity of those files Avira is pointing to as being infected.

Let's go this route...

Please right-click zoek.exe once again, and select: Run as Administrator (Give the program a few seconds to appear.)
Next, copy/paste the entire script in the code box below to the input field of Zoek:

Close any open windows.
Click the Run script button and wait. It takes a few minutes to run the script.

When finished, the zoek-results.log is opened in Notepad.
If a reboot is needed the log is opened after the reboot.

Please post the new zoek-results.log in your reply.

Next, let's see what MBAM has to report on the files Avira is targeting...

Please go to the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) download
Save to the Desktop
Double-click the downloaded MBAM file to run it.

When the installation begins, follow the prompts in the setup process.
Do not make any changes to default settings and when the program has finished installing, make sure only the following options are checked:
>Update Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware
>Launch Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware

>Enable free trial of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO
Click on the Finish button.

If an update is found, the program automatically updates itself.
At the program console, on the Scanner tab, and select: Perform Quick Scan

Next, click on the Scan button.

When the Malwarebytes scan is completed, click on: Show Results
When presented with a screen showing the malware detected, just press: Save Log

Save the log to the Desktop, or to an easy to find location.

Please copy/paste the entire contents of the MBAM report in your reply.

I downloaded and update the MBAM to the latest version already. But I do not know where can I find "program console, on the Scanner tab, and select: Perform Quick Scan". Please guide me.

And here is another scan of zoek.
And I get this pop up error after zoek scan, which zoek require me to restart the computer.

Quote: not know where can I find "program console, on the Scanner tab, and select: Perform Quick Scan".
The program console is nothing more that the main screen of MBAM. However, there is a new version of MBAM, and my instructions are outdated. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0 has a completely redesigned user interface.

Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install (X's = current version)
Place a checkmark next to Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then click: Finish

Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases is out of date, click the Fix Now button.

Next, click the Settings tab at the top, and, in the left column, select Detections and Protections
If not already checked, select: Scan for rootkits

Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, and select: Threat Scan
Next, click: Scan Now

If you receive a message that updates are available, click: Update Now

At this point, the update is downloaded, installed, and the scan starts.
The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.

If potential threats are detected, select Quarantine All as the Action for all the listed items.
Next, click: Apply Actions

While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log
In the window that opens, click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to the Desktop.

1. The log is automatically saved by MBAM and is also viewed by clicking:
History tab > Application Logs.
2, If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove...
Click OK and allow MBAM to proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

I have a Winrar file that is supposed to contain an editor for a game called S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and it has a Malware in it. When scanning it with Avira, Avira offers to Clean it, but a re-scan of the file shows the Malware again, so I am not sure it is really Clean. I tried changing the permissions...

If your system was infected with a virus, would you ?
Would you, attempt to disinfect and clean or would you just format and reinstall Windows ? I guess it depends on how serious the situation is, but isn't reinstalling always best due to the fact it wipes everything clean ?
