The fact that this is Spanish(Maybe?) makes it very VERY difficult to read.... Any way you could turn it into English? On the first glance noticed some things that MIGHT be potential issues, unsure, cause..... I am not yet used to reading the logs, and different language doesn't help the issue :)

Of course sorry.

Ports, applications, accessibility. Maybe your other device is used a lot less, you haven't messed with any ports or have any applications that require forwarding. Honestly, very weird issue, I would need to investigate the files. Can you scan your PC With Farbar MiniToolBox and Malwarebytes JRT? Post the logs that you get.

This could be a worm (Network virus). And you might need to reflash your routers software. Check your network settings or network device and see if there are static IP's in place. Could you try disconnecting from the network, cleaning up your PC with Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner, restart PC and see if the issue persists? If it doesn't, try connecting to a different network and see if it happens...

Re: Did AdwCleaner Remove Required Registry Files?

Thanks John! That is reassuring. Do you think you could check about the files for another computer of mine? I just want to be sure that the registry will be okay.

Did AdwCleaner Remove Required Registry Files?

In hopes of making my two computers as safe as can be I went ahead and removed the various files that AdwCleaner detected in a scan. However, because I had issues with my computer's hardrive becoming corrupt recently, I'm worried that some of the registry files that were deleted might in fact be necessary ones. Can someone please let me know if this is the case? I've posted the content of the l...

Re: Win XP support

I am not sure, but I think there is a library of legacy Adwcleaner installations for older software if the new ones do not work. I just looked at compatibilities for the newest version, it appears that it should work with WinXP. What issues are you experiencing?

Also avoid the link above, not only it is Russian, but also illegitimate. 

Edit: Interestingly enough it isn't. Not sure where I loo...

Adwcleaner freezes during removal of viruses.

Got 2 viruses and the AdwCleaner freezes  @20% during removal. Microsoft Security Essential and Malwarebytes does not detect these viruses.

No1: PUP.Optional.YahooChrome.     Registry[HKLM] SOFTWARE\Yahoo\SS

No2: PUP.Adware.Heuristic                C:\programData\{D19C2D22-6043-47E7-B400-83A351841204}

Haw, can I remove it?

Re: General Question about AdsFix

Greetings. Please do paste the log. Also, weird reaction, it shouldn't take 4 hours for 50%. It could have been malware trying to prevent further execution of the software, had that happen before. And I am not sure if there is a way to recover your files, official representatives should comment on this matter.
