Hi Jessica and welcome to GeekPolice!

I am Gabethebabe and I will be helping you with this issue. Before we start some general remarks/rules:
  • Whilst Im helping you, please follow my instructions carefully and do not experiment on your own.
  • Feel free to ask questions! Especially if my instructions are not clear. Im here to help, not confuse you.
  • I will try and respond quickly, but please understand I do have a real life (job, wife, 3 kids, kinky hobbies).
  • Stick with me till the end! If your computer starts running better, doesnt mean it is clean yet!


====================

Careful now, thinkpoint is a rogue security program. For an explanation of this term you can consult e.g. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Whatever you do, do not buy a license for this program. If you already did, you have been scammed. In that case I suggest you contact your financial institution and see if you can revert the payment.

The first thing we are going to do is try and temporarily disable the rogue, to get rid of all the fake virus alerts and clear the path for our antivirus tools. For this we use RKill.

====================

Please download RKill by Grinler from Download Mirror #1 and save it to your desktop.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double click the RKill desktop icon (rightclick > Run as Administrator for Vista/WIN7).
  • A black screen will briefly flash indicating a successful run.
  • If this does not occur please delete that application and try using Mirror #2
  • Continue process until the tool runs.
  • Important: RKill only temporarily disables the malware. If you reboot the computer, it will be active again. So do not reboot until we kill the infection.


If you managed to disable Think Point, continue with the next step without rebooting. If all attempts to run rkill and disable Think Point fail, let me know!

====================

Please download OTL by OldTimer from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and save it to your Desktop.
  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe.
  • Make sure the Extra Registry option is set to Use SafeList
  • Click the Run Scan button and allow it to run.
  • It will produce two logs for you, OTL.txt and Extras.txt. Please post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.


Good luck!

That is a problem.
Are you able to get to any other (clean) computer, download 2-3 versions of rkill and download OTL as well, save them to a USB memory stick (or burn them to a CD) and move them to the infected computer?
(NOTE: if you use a USB memory stick, if possible, set it to read-only before plugging it into the infected computer, to be more safe)

That would be the best, I think. Please let me know if that is possible!

Here are the download links again for the tools I would like to use:

If that works, please follow the instructions in my first post and get back here with the results.
