Windows 7: ESET won't install; BFE won't start

ESET won't install; BFE won't start

Noticed today that one of our client machines (Win7Pro64) doesn't have AV software on it. Attempted to push ESET, was unsuccessful. Started digging, found BFE errors and search led me to this thread.

Since every issue is different, I figured I'd post a new thread, in hopes that someone could shed some light on what's going on, and where I can go from here.

The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log: Addition.txt
Also post the Addition.txt in your reply.

Also, use the Farbar Service Scanner:

Press: Scan

When done, FSS creates a log, FSS.txt, on the Desktop.

I uploaded the files as attachments; please let me know if I should paste them in instead.


--Edit-- Turns out the machine is 32 bit, not 64. Thx!

one of our client machines...
Are you running a business, like a computer repair shop, or, something else?

The reason why I am asking is, these tools are meant for home users. A corporation machine may contain data on it that may be erased, or, the tools may identify a unique company program as a problem, etc.

The machine acquired a Rootkit at some point. Perhaps the owner made attempts to remove it, but, the damage is still there.

Just want to have an idea of what we are dealing with...

We're an MSP, and encountered some errors that we couldn't find our way through. This is one of our customers, we've just acquired them within the last 3 months or so.

My apology, however, I am just an amateur, and do not feel comfortable providing malware guidance to a Managed Service Provider.
