  6. @Chandan P The presence of this scheduled task in your FRST scan report indicates that this system is not properly licensed and activated. The registry patches sole purpose is to suppress licensing and activation checks.

  11. Good to hear that everything appears to be working properly. The thread will stay open for at least three days before we close it.
  12. The only other thing is to uninstall Firefox and delete the profile folder, and reinstall Firefox.
  13. Okay. I also noticed that there are several legacy FF extensions installed. Disable all the legacy extensions. Any difference?
  14. Ken, Disable the "I don't care about cookies" extension. What difference does that make?
  15. Go ahead and uninstall uBlock Origin. Close the browser session and then reinstall uBlock Origin.
  16. You can go ahead and let RogueKiller delete those detections.
  17. Alternate Data Streams are just that. They are data streams that are attached to running processes. Think of them as tiny programs that are attached to another running process. AdChoices is a legitimate advertising network. So, the ads may be legit. As far as a rogue FF extension. You would need to disable all extensions and then enable them one at a time until you find the rogue extension. I would like for you to run another tool. Download RogueKiller from https://www.fosshub.com/RogueKiller.html and save it to your desktop. Double-click on setup.exe to install RogueKiller. Close all programs and disconnect any USB or external drives before running the tool. Right-click RogueKiller.exe and select Run As Administrator to run the tool. Once the Prescan has finished, click Scan. Once the Status box shows "Scan Finished", click on the "Report" button and attach the scan log to your reply.
  18. Other than three Alternate Data Streams, you logs show no malware. This may be a rogue FF extension. Copy the below code to Notepad; Save As fixlist.txt to your Desktop. AlternateDataStreams: C:\Windows:CM_0939d09660ebff6d267be4be651447129b660d1e4c5b88f1e5a04d951976163f [74] AlternateDataStreams: C:\Windows:CM_c83224b93665ae525a56615c7f6ec83a70075eb4452b7e0f7aee9ce9516789ef [74] AlternateDataStreams: C:\ProgramData\PACE:E43E050BB334F242 [217] Close Notepad. 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 this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system IMPORTANT: Save all of your work, as the next step may reboot your computer. Run FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait. If the tool needed a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart. The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Attach it to your reply. NOTE: If the tool warns you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version. I would also like for you to run a third-party tool that aggressively targets Adware and Junkware. Download AdwCleaner and save it on your Desktop. Close all open programs and Internet browsers (you may want to print out or write down these instructions first). Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool. Click on the Scan button. After the scan has finished, click on the Clean button. Confirm each time with OK. You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open in Notepad after the restart (this is the log of what was removed), which you can save on your Desktop. Attach that log file to your reply. NOTE: If you lose that log file for any reason, you can find it at C:\AdwCleaner on your computer.
  19. Google Update runs as a scheduled task. There are 2 scheduled tasks related to Google Update. The Google Repair Service runs the Google Chrome Elevation Service when Google Updates needs to be repaired because the update algorithm detects that Google Updates are not occurring.
  20. We are done here. You are still trying to fix this yourself and disregarding our forum procedures. This thread is now closed and your permissions to post here are revoked.
