    Hi,

    FRST (Farbar Recovery Scan Tool) is safe, not a virus or malicious.

    Listen Derek, we've done our best to respond to your queries and have been very patient with you. One of our Malware Specialists has now agreed to help you and has asked you to run some tools to that end. Nothing we ask you to run will contain a virus. Either you want the help or you don't. If you do then don't be questioning everything we ask you to download. Many of the tools used will show as potentially harmful by those scanners only because they dive deep into the system to retrieve information which is necessary to clean out any malware hiding there. Please do not run any of the tools through those scanners or we will have no choice but to close this thread. If you look at all of the other cases here you will see how malware is handled.
