I've had a frustrating issue lately with my PC.

A storm knocked out our ISP for an hour, and when the internet came back on, I was was swarmed with malware.

We cleaned it off with Kaspersky, Hitman Pro, and Norton. But the next morning, it returns. We clean it off again. The next day, it returns with rogues and backdoors.

And Norton/Hitman Pro says that the computer is completely clean, but as soon as it gets uninstalled, the rogues and backdoors are back again.

What is the issue here? Is our IP address compromised?

Hello Mazy,

Yes and no. The problem is that none of the tools you've run have been able to properly eradicate the malware. Please follow the instructions in our pre-posting topic New Instructions - Read This Before Posting for Malware Removal Help and post the requested logs in your next reply.

If you have trouble with one of the steps, simply move on to the next one, and make note of it in your reply.

Twenty glorious years of Windows malware
Back when Windows was young, viruses scampered from system to system, occasionally deleting files, which could almost always be retrieved, and putting up dialog boxes with inscrutable contents, like the numeral 1. Nowadays, Windows malware locks up your data and holds it for ransom. It...

Unable to scan / Malware? / missing network - major problems
A co-worker informed me one of the fake popup "security scan" programs appeared over the weekend. I am not sure they clicked it or not, but it appears nothing was installed. I have tried to run ~everything~ I can think of to even scan or find the name of any malware, and nothing. Internet...
