  1. also: I should note that, once I click "Remove from chrome" when it initially tells me about the extension being added when I do a fresh install of chrome, I experience no malicious stuff. I do not get any sort of rerouting to other pages, nothing like that. The only thing I'm experiencing is whenever I reinstall Chrome, chrome notifies me that there was an extension added by a program on my computer as seen in the photo in my original post: https://imgur.com/a/GZqAq1N


  2. hello aura. here are the files you have asked for. like  I said in my post, I don't believe I have malware. the user AdvancedLogs on this forum looked over my logs last week regarding something else, and said everything was fine. I run scans regularly and nothing gets picked up. I uninstalled the "Ace Stream" program months ago, and it's a widely popular program to watch sports streams. Just wondering what's causing the Ace Stream "Ace Script" extension that can be seen here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ace-script/mjbepbhonbojpoaenhckjocchgfiaofo to be installed on my computer. "another program on your computer added an extension " makes it sound like I still have Ace Stream installed.. but I do not.

  3. A few months ago, I installed Ace Stream to watch the NBA finals. After I watched, I uninstalled it. Didn't notice anything wrong, or anything like that. just didn't want it anymore. I remember when installing it asked me to allow the chrome extension "Ace Script" and I hit no. I reinstalled chrome just now because it just felt slow kinda, and after a fresh install, it shows this: https://imgur.com/a/GZqAq1N

    I'm shocked because I completely forgot about this, yet even after a fresh install it shows it. I hit remove, but as the image says, it says another program on my computer added this extension. I don't have ace stream on my computer anymore and haven't had it for at least 2 months.

    I tend to run scans on my computer weekly, and nothing has come up as a virus/malware. and I had the user "AdvancedLogs" on this forum check out another issue I had recently that turned out to be nothing, and he had me send over logs and everything and he didn't see anything wrong, and I haven't touched anything to dow ith Ace Stream since June. anyone know how I can get to the bottom of what is causing this?


  4. Sorry if this isn't the right spot to post this, if it isn't feel free to move it please.

     

    i was going through my nvidia geforce experience settings, and had to change the location of my recordings to a different folder. In the nvidia program, it shows this: qwkYn18.png

    at first, when i went to my C drive, i didn't see that folder that's highlighted in Green in the image i posted. I had to go to my folder options and uncheck "hide protected operating system files", i just thought it was weird that it shows the folder in the nvidia directory and not my own C drive. so after i unchecked "hide protected operating system files" i could now see the folder in my C drive, and inside it is "install.dat" and i uploaded "install.dat" to virustotal and it came back clean, i also scanned with malwarebytes and it came back clean, just never seen it before, kinda curious as to what it is. googling "82ace7d6-0197-474d-bf4b-a2043e72329b" has brought up posts about malware, but im not sure if its specifically that folder. i don't think i have malware, i tend to run scans every so often and they always come back clean. just wondering what this folder exactly is because i'mm curious. if anyone can shed some light on it, it'd be greatly appreciated.

    Hello @hungry4chicken and :welcome:

    How many files do you have in that folder? I'm wondering if it's just trying to scan so many files that it appears to be frozen.

     

    Hi advancedsetup, I reinstalled Spotify so I can't check for an exact number.. but I believe there were hundreds of folders in there. They weren't folders I put there, like my own files, it was all Spotify related files. It never did this before, and I've had both malwarebytes & spotify installed for years.


  6. Hello, I've been using malwarebytes for years, and never had an issue. Today I was running a custom (full) scan, and while watching a youtube video, my computer froze, and i couldn't do anything. Figured it was nothing, so I rebooted, started the scan again, and it did the same thing. One thing I noticed was whenever it got to scanning a file in appdata/local/spotify, it would freeze. After it doing that 3-4 times, and always freezing on Spotify files, it finally let me complete the scan. Nothing was found, I also ran Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit beta, MSE, and hitman pro, those all came back clean too. Just a few moments ago, after I thought the freezing issue was fixed, I ran another scan to check, and it started freezing again while scanning Spotify files. All the times it has froze, it stops scanning and sticks to one file, which is always a Spotify file, and then a few seconds later my computer completely freezes and i have to reboot. Anyone know what is going on? If this is not the right spot to post this, can you please move it to the right page.

     

    Edit: I just tested this to make sure it wasn't just a massive coincidence that it always stopped and froze on Spotify. I ran a test on ONLY the spotify folder in appdata, and it froze again. I don't get why this is happening
