Re: Spamming issue - Logs Included

I see MBAM did its usual excellent job. Yuk, what a mess.

I want to check for rootkits before we go any further. It's more of an exploratory run rather than looking for anything specific.

Download and run Sophos AntiRootkit. Post the log in this thread, even if nothing is found.

Thanks for the help. Went over to the in-law's house today, disabled Avast and Windows Defender and ran Sophos as admin with internet unplugged.
Only one file popped up in the upper panel but it wasn't readily identified and no deletion was recommended. Thus, no reboot occured automatically but I did reboot manually before copying the Sophos log.

My brother-in-law states PC seems to be running much better since my running the pre-required tests recommended at start of forum. No further instances of spam being sent.

Will await your reply and once again thanks.
