On the 23.10.20 through my own foolishness I downloaded something without checking its sources. Multiple applications were downloaded onto my laptop. All but one have been deleted and my antivirus caught a majority of them. The file in question is called GirlDicoma and a Google search brought nothing up. I have tried and tried to delete this file, my antivirus scan doesn't flag it but I cant delete it without administrators permission (I was under the assumption that I was the administrator as owner of the laptop). It doesn't appear to be doing anything of harm but I'd prefer to be safe than sorry. I also cant disable the permissions it has because it wont give me access. Its an exe file so I don't really want to know what harm it could be doing to my laptop.

Hello Alisnol and welcome to TSG,

Run the following:

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Alternative download option: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/6731-farbar-recovery-scan-tool.html

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

If your security alerts to FRST either, accept the alert or turn your security off to allow FRST to run. It is not malicious or infected in any way...

Be aware FRST must be run from an account with Administrator status...

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
    (Windows 8/10 users will be prompted about Windows SmartScreen protection - click More information and Run.)
  • Make sure Addition.txt is checkmarked under "Optional scans"


  • Press Scan button to run the tool....
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The tool will also make a log named (Addition.txt) Please attach that log to your reply.

Thank you,

Kevin

I'm being blocked from downloading the thing you sent. "This app might harm your device, Microsoft Defender SmartScreen reported that this app is not commonly downloaded; you should only open files you trust."

I already included that point in FRST instructions....

Hiya Alisnol.

Thanks for those logs, continue:

Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop or location where you ran FRST from.

NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64, 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 that cannot be undone.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs 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) or wherever you ran FRST from. Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

NOTE-1: This fix will run a scan to check that all Microsoft operating system files are valid and not corrupt and attempt to correct any invalid files. It will also run a disk check on the restart to ensure disk integrity. Depending on the speed of your computer this fix may take 30 minutes or more.

NOTE-2: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed.

The following directories are emptied:

  • Windows Temp
  • Users Temp folders
  • Edge, IE, FF, Chrome and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History
  • Recently opened files cache
  • Flash Player cache
  • Java cache
  • Steam HTML cache
  • Explorer thumbnail and icon cache
  • BITS transfer queue (qmgr*.dat files)
  • Recycle Bin

Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix.



The system will be rebooted after the fix has run.

Next,


Run FRST one more time:

Type or copy/paste the following in the edit box after "Search:".

*GirlDicoma*

Click Search Registry button and post the log (Search.txt) it makes to your reply.



Let me see those logs in your reply...

Thank you,

Kevin.
