  1. Hello recently I just updated Hitmanpro and after that it started detecting these files as malware, Bitdefender hasn't detected anything even after rebooting my computer and re-scanning with HitmanPro again it still pops up, are these false positives? Any help would be appreciated thank you! HitmanPro_20210408_0756.log
  2. It created the file before the restart happened and after my desktop had restarted I don't think the program continued at all I'm not sure if it finished or it just did it really fast. Also yes I do Bitdefender full scans and Hitmanpro scans daily and they all come with nothing. The problem still happens with Process explorer and autorun I've reinstalled them both but they still wont do the virus total scan part. Fixlog.txt
  3. Sorry it started working again after I made that post. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  4. When I try running the farbar recovery tool it says not responding I've waited over 10 minutes but nothing seems to be happening, also yes I don't have any Malwarbytes for windows installed because I use Bitdefender instead.
  5. This is a picture on what I see when I run process explorer in the virus total scan section it says something like the operation timed out or the device attached to the system is not functioning this is also happening when I run auto runs as well. I'm not really sure why this is happening when I used this yesterday everything is fine. I haven't really done anything to my system for this to suddenly happen so I don't think this could be a malware or virus causing this to happen. I've also run sfc/scannow and it came back with nothing was wrong, other than this my desktop seems to be running fi
  6. Every time I boot up my computer I look at auto runs and process explorer Virus total scans, today all I'm seeing is either the operation time out, or the device attached to the system is not functioning, I looked up similar cases and I'm a little worried, everything else seems to be working fine and I'm not really sure on how to fix this at all.
  7. I like to say I'm a very paranoid person, any suspicious activity on my computer I make sure its not a virus or malware. When I was doing a daily scan with Hitmanpro it ended up detecting something I looked further into it and it seemed to me a false positive, here's what virustotal had to say https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/445a501362a7ba1691b32a42a1296454e10d55bb16c8b56bf7dfd3955b5dbc80/detection. I already scanned with Malwarebytes and adwcleaner. I dont download any sketchy stuff, the only real problems I've had is either my computer taking a while to boot up and cpu usage going a litt
  8. Also do you want me to update the disk drives?
  9. I did a malwarebyte scan and this came up Malwarebytes Scan report.txt. Also I cant find the chrome extension to remove also what are the search engines that I should remove as well?
  10. A few weeks ago my sister told me that her laptop might be infected so I decided to do a bunch of scans to find out if anything was wrong the scans found some adware and got rid of it. Present day her laptop is really slow all of the sudden, I thought maybe because I had a bunch of antivirus software on her computer but after deleting all of them leaving Malwarebytes and Bitdefender her system still acted up, any advice would help. Her laptop is really old but she told me this was the first time this was happening.
  11. I just recently decided to use Process Exploerer and Autorun and in Autorun I saw this, I'm not sure what this is and information would help I'm not sure if this is a malware or virus.
  12. Everything seems to be fine so far I decided to let my system idle to see the cpu usage and this time it was at 0-1% usage with the occasional jump to 5%. I still haven’t fully set up my laptop so we’ll see what happens. Thank you for all your help and advice!
  13. I’ll get back to you with this report tomorrow but I have a question I reset my laptop by going into update and security and doing the reset option and picking remove everything is that the best way to do it or is there a more secure way of doing it?
  14. I haven’t tested it out yet but I assume it’s fine since I did a factory reset can the malware still linger?
  15. My laptop still feels weird to me the fans are constantly running sometimes extremely loud when I’m not even doing anything or have anything open and I’ve noticed FPS drops in games and spikes in cpu usages constantly. I just decided to do a factory reset on my laptop to be safe. I looked at what I did to my laptop in the past to see if I did anything suspicious the only real suspect things I remember doing was trying out a new program QuickCpu and downloading a FPS pack the FPS pack was in filedropper I remembered the website being suspicious but after downloading the pack and scanning it wit
  16. I'm not exactly sure on how to disable Bitdefender before doing the full scan.
  17. Malwarebyte Txt.txtAdwCleaner[S00].txtFRST.txtAddition.txt Here's all the files you asked for
  18. If I do end up finding a cyrpto malware on my device should I be worried for my other devices that are connected to the same network/WiFi?
  19. When I tried downloading Farbar Recovery Scan tool it says FRST64.exe is not commonly downloaded and may be dangerous should I still continue?
  20. After learning what crypto jacking is I decided to test my laptop to see if I was infected. I had already scanned my device with Bitdefender and nothing came up. I turned on my laptop and left it open on taskmanger to see the cpu usage. I ended up leaving it on for 5 minutes making sure not to move the mouse or touch the keyboard. Within 5 minutes my cpu usage went from 1% up to 30% and randomly spiked up to 100% with the fan being loud. When I moved the mouse the cpu usage went down back to 1% and the fan also went quiet. I’m not sure what to do from here so I came here asking for help.
  21. No, everything seems to be working fine! Thank you for all your help and advice :)
  22. My Bit defender seems a little bit weird, after doing a vulnerability scan it says that I need to restart for a critical windows update. I checked in the windows update and security and it says I dont have any updates, after restarting and checking again it stills says I need to restart.
