FBI ransomware removal

Recommended Posts

Hi, my computer was infected with the FBI Moneypak ransomware. I used Emsisoft Emergency Kit (running in safe mode) and it quarantined several files. After that, the ransomware no longer comes up.

However, when logging into what was the infected account, after booting Windows, two dialog boxes are displayed re: missing dll's. See details below. What can I do to eliminate these messages? Does this suggest that there are still pieces of the malware on the computer?

Also, should I delete the quarantined files or is it fine to just leave them as quarantined?

Here's the content of the dialog boxes.

"There was a problem starting


The specified module could not be found."

"There was a problem starting


The specified module could not be found."

Attached are current log files: Emissoft Emergency Kit Log, OTL.txt, and Extras.txt

Thank you!
