Quick Diag Scan.


Download Quick Diag to your desktop.
Very Important!! -- Make sure program is on your desktop.
Disable your Antivirus/Antispyware prior to scanning.
Right Click Run as Administrator.
Select the Quick Scan.







Post the log that is generated in your next post.
You should attach this file as it is rather large, you can click on attach files when you reply.

Nothing Shady about this, I'm trying to see where the red circle is loading from. These types of logs are used to diagnose issues, nothing more. :)

Yea, it'll take a minute, can you tell me if the circle appears on your desktop or just when you open a browser. Also, I'd like you to download Kill Em All Full Version, unzip it to your desktop run it and let me know if it stops the circle.

I ran the kill em all thing and it didn't work. It said in the results that there were a few things it couldn't stop from running, I don't know if this is the thing that generates it.

This one seems a bit fishy, I'm still looking over the logs. It will take some time to go over as it is a lot of info.

I'll take the Malwarebytes Support tool logs. Still looking over the initial log this takes time to research correctly.


As far as rogue killer; click on Results then removal.

@Legenda

I have a partial fix written for you, just waiting on the other logs and a word from another member.
