  1. Thanks Christian I selected to reboot again and the shield is back. My computer is old and maybe getting forgetfull like me!!! Doug
  2. I also had this problem but it finally stopped after the last reboot. However, the shield has disappeared in my task bar. Is there a way to get it back without rebooting? Doug
  3. Thanks for the reply and getting my mind straight. Here is the fixlog.txt. Doug
  4. My appologies for that oversight. Having seen the word FIX highlited in bold in the previous instructions I would naturally expect the word SCAN to be highlited or in bold indicating the SCAN button. February 18 instructions: Run a fresh scan with Emsisoft Emergency Kit (EEK) and FRST, attach the new EEK and FRST logs to your reply. I have now run a FRST SCAN and attached the file.
  5. I have now gone back and reconfirmed that the instructions were followed as you requested. When I run the FRST.exe your instructions are to select the 'fix' button which I have done. The following are the instructions provided: (NOTE: It's important that both files, FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work. NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system Run FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait. If the tool needed a restart please make sure you let the system to restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart. The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please attach it to your reply.) Was I supposed to select the 'scan' button instead?
  6. The fixlog is what I just ran this morning. If this is not a fresh scan then I don't understand what is going on. The fixlog.txt file is what showed up on my desk top when the scan finished. When I check properties it was created today the 20th.
  7. This is puzzling! I opened the fixlog file that was sent and the first three lines are as follows: Fix result of Farbar Recovery Tool (FRST written by Farbar) (x86) Version: 12-02-2014 01 Ran by HP_Administrator at 2014-02-18 19:12:11 Run:2 Running from C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator\Desktop\Emsisoft Emergency Scan Stuff Boot Mode: Normal The only thing I did was to create a folder on the desk top titled 'Scan Stuff' to keep them safe from other users until I could send them. Anyway, I went back and created a new fixlist.txt file from the thread you sent to be sure it was correct and reran the FRST.exe after running EEK. These files were not put in a folder. They are direct from the desk top. Thanks for your patience. Doug
  8. I ran the EEK in report only mode then ran the FRST. My computer is already running better. It has that original snappy response. Thank you for all the help. Doug
  9. Thank you again for the reply. I have completed the scan and attached the log. Just want to mention that the computer did not reboot. I will reboot it manually. I will let you know on how the computer behaves over the next two days. Thank you again for your persistance in gitting rid of this tramp ware. Doug
  10. Thank you for the reply. I ran the FRST again and this time I was able to get the fixlog.txt.
  11. Thank you for the quick response. I printed a copy of the instructions as suggested and all operations were completed. The Fixlog.txt file appeared as stated after the FRST scanner finished. However, when I closed the scanner window the Fixlog.txt file also closed and It did not appear on the desktop. I ran a search and it was not found. Possibly it was a different name. All files that were created and appeared on the desk top are attached regardless of name.
  12. After the scan finished there were several objects that could not be removed. The instructions were to post the results of the emergency scans here. The 'additional.txt' file that was stated would be created was not created.
