    I noticed a few things that were not-quite right in the Rkill log

    Defender is off - are you running a 3rd party anti-virus?

    a few systemfiles are off kilter too.

    After Hitman Pro runs

    Right click the Windows icon (aka Start button) on the Taskbar
    Select Command Prompt (Admin)

    Enter the following lines in the Command Prompt window:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    SFC /ScanNow

    If there are any errors on the screen after the commands run,
    Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs
    Right click the CBS folder
    Select Send to > Compressed (zip) folder
    answer yes to place on Desktop
    Attach the zip folder to your next post

    Full tutorials:
    Run DISM in Command Prompt
    Run SFC /ScanNOW in Command Prompt

    @Slartybart -
    I have noticed these same 2 items on systems I have scanned this week. I think they may be nothing.

    * NetTcpPortSharing => %systemroot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\SMSvcHost.exe [Incorrect ImagePath]

    * PrintNotify => C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\W32X86\3\PrintConfig.dll [Incorrect ServiceDLL]

    I know the missing services thing is a bug that keeps reappearing.
    The temp file, well, that looks to be a problem; not sure what it is.

    * C:\Users\MyrnaZ\AppData\Local\Temp\{7E6122F0-DB5E-430A-A6AE-6F73E75D1A32}\{BCCE466F-5194-418B-B7A4-55A77A6E62F6}.exe (PID: 16284) [T-HEUR]

    Now, I have to chuckle, how could I not after running ESET before reading your post....Thank you for checking on the link! I knew you, or any one else here would post a "DING DING DING Warning..............." all in red and an instantaneous "Hmmmm this site was here a moment ago" link. So, it is part of this bullcrap. Another thing, I never made this connection, until a little research discovered is the CPU Overload warning I would receive, randomly. I would open task manager to see what programs might cause this running in the background, but saw nothing.
    This is what I read:
    If your machine is infected with the Trojan.Poweliks you will see very high CPU usage, and multiple “dllhost.exe *32” process running in Windows Task Manager. While these symptoms may be caused by other factors, we strongly suggest to check you computer for malware if you notice them.
    Ta Da...
    Do I now run Hitman?

    Yes, I have Avast running, but try to remember to disable it while running these programs. I am olddddd, already, and my memory fails me sometimes, ugh. I will disable before running Hitman.

    Oh, wait.....Avast just started notifying me Defender was off, and if I want to enable it. When I click on the notification it wants me to upgrade. I do not recall ever shutting Defender off, and assumed Avast took care of these things. The pop-ups started a few weeks ago, at most. Do I need to manually turn Defender back on, because I know how to do that, at least.

    Let's change gears for a moment.

    You don't have to disable your runtime AV for any of these tools unless that's part of the instruction.

    Give me a minuite to find the tutorial - bac in a moment.

    If you already started HitmanPro - let it run
    Post the scan screen showing any threats it detected ... I foget where the log is so the screen will have to suffice.
