    In addition to the suggested malware scanners, suggest you add TDSSKiller to the list to see if you have a rootkit present.

    Note   Note
    When running TDSSKiller, launch the program, click on the blue text "Change Parameters" & check the box marked "Detect TDLFS File system." Click OK & then run the scan.


    Also it may help to go back to a restore point before the infection, provided this action isn't blocked. You may have to do this in safe mode if it is blocked in regular mode. Be sure to go 2 to 3 points back past the point of infection as malware can infect the 1st restore point so that the virus will reappear.

    Another scanner you could use would be Norton Power Eraser. Please read the tutorial if you opt to use this.

    Note   Note
    Norton Power Eraser uses aggressive methods to detect threats, and there is a risk that it can select some legitimate programs for removal. You should carefully review the scan results page before removing files.


    You also have the option of doing a refresh or a reset if the damage is too deep to restore normal operations.

    Be aware that if you do have a rootkit it will have to be cleaned before using refresh or reset. A rootkit is a hidden boot partition that hides at the end of the drive & boots up before the OS, thus taking control over it before it has a chance to boot. Hence the reason some infection keep coming back.

    A suggestion...open Task Manager, under Processes look for any abnormal or suspicious programmes running especially anything linking to the Trojan and click on End Task.....then repeat MBAM Anti-Root scan

    I've already done so and also ran rKill to take out any hidden tasks.

    Also, Do you want me to post the MBAR log files here? from both the first and 2nd time i ran it?

    Well, the computer does not seem to be having trouble by the trojan. The only problem is that i can't run the installer for neither MalwareBytes or ADWcleaner. I don't know if the trojan is still in my PC, but neither Zemana AntiMalware or MalwareBytes Anti-rootkit can find anything. Am i clear or do i need to keep on troubleshooting?

    Not being able to run antimalware installer is not good! Can you post the message of prevented malwarebytes installation?

    I've reread you first post and would like to know:
    -what was original program you mentioned, that sent you online and caused install of malware (and that site location - if you remember)
    - can you translate that picture you posted in Norwegian to English. just beginning and the last words. I'm not sure that's the same as smartscreen...

    That would help to identify the real malware.

    Hi, The original program that was installed and gave me the malware, i do not remember the name of, but what it did was downloading a html file, that then opened and sent me to another website where it downloaded a program that dissapered out of nowhere.

    The image i posted says that the "publisher" has been blocked from running the program aka installer on this computer.
    the rest of the "translation" is basicly. Navn = Name, Utgiver = Publisher, Type = type, Fra = Where and what file was trying to run.

    When trying to install ADWCleaner thought it says:

    This program has been blocked for your own safety. it then leads to say that a system administrator (me being the only) has blocked access to run this application. Contact the administrator for more information

    Mystery is: I am the only administrator and user on this computer

    You mentioned that administrator rights were removed?
    Post that file you mentioned. ADWcleaner would be more useful, but to no avail.

    I do have Administrator rights to open other things, but i just don't have higher rights than this program that stops me from running the AWCleaner. What file are you talking about, the html? i would not recommend opening it then

    The picture i get when trying to run AWCleaner is difficult to get, but it looks similar to this.
