    1. Let's see if JRT picks up anything else. Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
    • Disable your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
    • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Seven, right-mouse click it and select "Run as Administrator".
    • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
    • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
    • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
    • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.


    2. Regarding the issue with applications responding, there are a number of corruptions listed in your log. Please perform a SFC (System File Checker) scan which will check and attempt to fix any corrupted files on your system.
    • Since you have Windows 8.1, from the desktop, right-click the Windows logo in the bottom-left corner and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • At the command prompt, type the following line, and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow (note the space before the slash)
    • When the scan is complete, if no errors are found, restart your computer and post back
    • Please let me know in your next reply if the message does not say "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".
    Here is the JRT results:

    I will run SFC again to see if after all of these fixing is working now. I did it about 3 times a few days ago and the result were always the same: SFC encountered corrupt files, but couldn't repair it. Lets see how goes now.
    I could not paste here the SBS file because for three times the browser freeze, so I include it in Dropbox. Here is the link:

    Re: Is efnnouse.exe a virus?

    Hi, Monka.

    First, let's take care of removing the tools used:

    Please download Delfix from here.

    Ensure the following boxes are checked:
    • Remove disinfection tools
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
    • Click Run

    The program will run for a few moments and then notepad will open with a log. Please paste the log in your next reply.

    In the meantime, I'll check with the specialists who help when SFC is not able to resolve the corruptions to find out if they want you to start a new topic on the additional issues you are having or continue here.

    Hi Corrine,

    Following you will find the log from this cleaning file. I appreciate a bunch your help with this issue, and now really need help with the corrupted files. I have the Windows disk that I received from HP, the manufacturer of my PC, but I am afraid to run it I lost all the programs I have that didn't come with the system. As I think that you have finished all the steps to clean the computer. Before you go I want to offer you my modest help as a thank you. If in some moment you need to translate a text from or into Spanish, don't hesitate to contact me, I will do it for free.

    God bless you.

    Re: Is efnnouse.exe a virus?

    Thank you, Monka. That is very kind of you. I was very happy to help!

    When I hear from the specialists who help with corruptions, they'll either reply here with instructions or I will. Have a nice evening.

    Re: Is efnnouse.exe a virus?

    Hi, Monka.

    The Dropbox link is a shortcut to the CBS log rather than the actual log. In order to determine how best to proceed, the specialists need to see log. Please follow the instructions below and either attach the zipped CBS log to your reply or upload it to Dropbox and provide the new link.


    1. On Windows 8, press the Windows key, type This PC, and press Enter.
      On Windows Vista/7, click the Start button then click Computer.
    2. Double-click on the C: drive, under the Hard Disk Drives category, and then scroll down to, and double click on the Windows folder.
    3. Find and double click on the Logs folder.
    4. Right-click on the CBS folder, and select Copy.
    5. Go back to your Desktop, right-click on it, and select Paste. You should now see a copy of the CBS folder appear on your Desktop called CBS.
    6. Right-click on this new folder, and navigate through Send to, and select Compressed (zipped) folder.
    7. A new file, also called CBS (CBS.zip), but this time with a different icon, will be created.


    Thank you!

    Hi Lorraine,

    Sorry for the delay, but I just saw your message now. I have the log as you requested. I had to use dropbox again because the browser stop responding every time I tried to paste in here.

    You have two corruptions. One which we'll fix here and another that is a known issue and can't be fixed. Info on the known issue is below.

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for take care of my issues. I don't know what to do, because the script has been running for over an hour, and about 45 mins. on a 20%. Should I stop it?

    It should only take a minute or so to run so yes go ahead and stop it. Then reboot your computer and then try running the script again. Thanks.

    Re: Is efnnouse.exe a virus?

    It doesn't appear that you followed the steps correctly. Please follow the instructions from Post#27 again. You want to make sure to drag the SFCFix.zip file with your mouse and drop it on top of the SFCFix.exe as shown below. Thank you.



  13. #33

    Re: Is efnnouse.exe a virus?

    I restarted the PC after the fixing, and took 4 mins to restart, 2 mins to open the login screen, and 30 secs to start. The desktop was missing from the toolbar, and I had to wait 15 secs to get Firefox open. Trying to open a shortcut, explorer stop responding and didn't reset itself for 15 secs. Opening a program took 2.5 mins waiting. It's not normal that a PC with 8Gb RAM, and 1 Tera HHDD, function unbelievably slow. Even Firefox last about half minute to open the right click if it doesn't stop responding. I don't know if you checked all the scans done before, because in one of them appeared a lot of corrupted registry files. I really will appreciate your help, because I am trying to avoid a system refresh or restart as I have a lot of programs that if are deleted, I could not take them back anymore.

    Thanks for your cooperation!

    Unhappy Re: Is efnnouse.exe a virus?

    I did everything as indicated. I dragged the zip file into the exe, and the scan started immediately. It took from 6pm to 10pm to give me the txt file. It asked for a windows 8 disk, and I put the HP recovery CD #1 that I have. They are 4 CDs. Maybe the files that must be recopied didn't were in there. However, I got the results like it was done. I don't have a Win 8 installation CD. The OS came with the computer, and the only thing I could get from HP were those recovery disks. If you know how to obtain a Win 8.1 installation file, please share the info with me.

  15. #35

    Re: Is efnnouse.exe a virus?

    Sorry, I forgot to tell you, I didn't download the zip file that you gave me. I had it before. Maybe this is why didn't work as you expected. I will do it again.

    Re: Is efnnouse.exe a virus?

    Ok, I ran it again but now with the script that you gave. As you said, it finish in a few secs. Here is the result:

    I restarted again. This time took 18 secs. to restart, but 1.5 mins. to open the login screen, and other 15 secs. to start. Firefox lasted 15 secs. to open. Explorer.exe freeze the first time I open it, and in a second try, was frozen about 10 secs. before autorestart. The program this time was only 18 secs. to open.

    Hi Brian, and thanks again for helping me. I am running Dism now. However, I tried to do that a couple times before, and the scan got stuck in "Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031" forever. Actually, have passed already 5 mins, and nothing changed. How long will it take to process?

    The computer continue slow, even when I tried to paste here the CBS everything (including the task manager) frozen and I had to restart. Then the restart was spinning forever, and I had to turned off with the button. I think that there is an error in the cleanup. Here is the link to dropbox:
