  1. Good day, My laptop got infected with a BitCoinMiner, possibly the same situation as in this case: https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/afi615/bitcoin_mining_virus_on_my_laptop_mines_when_idle/ (reddit thread) Guy found something in the task scheduler but I didn't find anything on my end. The DisallowRun thing he did didn't do anything for me either. I tried System Restore but it didn't help. Used Malwarebytes to scan the problem and it found 4 .dll files in the AppContainer path mentioned in the reddit thread. I quarantined and deleted them, restarted the system but it didn't seem to help. Later Malwarebytes detected 2 of the 4 .dll files again, I deleted them. Since nothing helped, I decided to seek help here. Also, today I found out that uTorrent (I know, this thing probably came from the torrents and after all these years of torrenting it finally happened) kinda deleted itself or something? Then Malwarebytes all of a sudden doesn't want to launch as well, giving me the «Unable to connect the Service» error. I tried reinstalling it but I couldn't even uninstall it because it was missing unins0001.msg file. I tried installing Malwarebytes on already exsiting files but the installation setup doesn't even want to start (task manager says it doesn't respond). So yesterday everything was fine, today Malwarebytes is kinda gone - can't launch, can't properly uninstall, can't install the new one... I'm very worried about this situation now and I wonder if I made things even worse for myself which wouldn't be too surprising... Please help

  3. So I’ve read other forums on this website on how to remove the “Miner.Bitcoinminer Activity 7” that norton keeps popping up, I’ve read other forums and followed what they did but I’m not sure if I did it right, it would be helpful if i could get help from a professional or similar, on the side note I have windows.
  4. Hello. I clicked on a dodgy link and have been plagued with a Bitcoin miner. It disabled my security updates, my Windows updates, and my Antivirus software. I did a reset but kept my personal files as I had some projects I could not lose. I removed the BitCoinMiner.Trojan before resetting. I Have run scans with Avast, AVG, Malwarebytes, tdskiller, and gmer.exe. I have a popup that comes up every time I open chrome saying blocked trojan xmr.omine.org. Just want to get rid of this. I'd appreciate any info on how the analysis into the problem is conducted using these files so if this happens again I can try and do some analysis myself. I am interested in Security and malware analysis. Just was pretty stupid clicking something I knew was dodgy AF. Addition.txt FRST.txt Malwarescan.txt
  5. Recently my laptop has been operating a lot slower and I have been getting non stop notifications from Norton stating that it has blocked an attack from: System Infected: Miner.Bitcoinminer Activity 7. I have done scans with Norton and Malwarebytes with no avail to fix the issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  6. Hello, Recently i have downloaded a game from skidrow website. Since then, I am getting a norton security notification that say “norton blocked an attack by: system infected: bitcoinminer activity 7”. the symptoms of this was not be able to run malwarebytes or adwcleaner. Even typing malwarebytes on a browser is shutting it down. The combofix program make the notification go away and some how “clean” the computer and fix the problem. But when I restart my computer, the problem appears again with the same symptoms. I also tried to run malwarebytes chameleon and it runs perfectly, but the program do not find any thread in the system. Note that my cpu/gpu is not affected by that “thing”. Thank you for helping me!! I’m lost right now.
  7. My computer has new ads popping up in new tabs every 20 minutes or so in Chrome. I can't run MalwareBytes, RKill, or Farbar unless it is in SafeMode. MalwareBytes detects RiskWare BitCoinMiner, but after quarantine and deletion, it reappears on reboot. I know I have utorrent installed and I am 95% sure that's what has caused this issue...will never use again. Please HELP!!! Addition.txt FRST.txt MalwareBytes Scan Log.txt
  8. hello, I've got unlucky 3 days ago and a virus package started to download and install itself on my PC. After I accidentally opened the malware infected exe file, due to a weird pop-up which immediately closed itself, I checked my virus scanner and it was turned off. After that I removed my internet cable with insane human speed, and got a lot of error messages that this and that program could not install. After lot of googling I scanned my PC with Avast and Malwarebytes. And they together found over 90 suspicious files. More than 20 were trojan bitcoinminer. After that I noticed that my PC got slightly faster, but then chrome opened itself directing me to a random page. I found out about SearchScope malware, I downloaded AdwCleaner. It found 2 more trojans and 11 PUPs. I remembered a program called HiJackThis which was used back then. And after I used it I found more SearchScope lines in the registry, I manually deleted them (there were 5). But then 2 of those searchscope registry files renewed itself, and none of my scanners could find anything. And lastly in the HiJackThis txt file I found an exe called cheatengine, since I never used it, I googled after it, and found out it's a virus too. Sorry if I wrote too much, I thought it will be easier to help knowing what I did in the last 3 days. The reason why I am asking for help is that I cannot clean up the trash after the malwares, because I cannot find them. And I am getting kind of tired and confused by now. Thank you for helping with this. I included my HiJackThis file too, because it says (file missing) to the cheatengine.exes, and that is what made me confused. I could not include my Malwarebytes threat scan log, because I installed, scanned and uninstalled it, due to weird working after the scan. And now I installed it again, it is fine now. One last thing I could not find anything useful about it on the internet. Only my AVAST shows it when I do a performance scan, it says there is a program called GOTO: <Product Name> running in the background. Is that a malware/spyware? Bill.

  9. A couple of days, a relative used my computer and downloaded something that came with a malicious software, and it keeps coming back with different names despite constant cleaning using MalwareBytes, HitmanPro, ZemanaAntiMalware, AdwCleaner, Avast Browser Cleanup, ZHP Cleaner and so forth. I also restored my browsers to default settings and deleted all the cookies, cache and such with CCleaner. At first this malware used to open random tabs in my browser but after some cleaning, it stopped. Then it changed to a ksecdd.ax file appearing in my users/user/appdata/local/temp folder every time I restarted the computer. MalwareBytes would find the file and quarantine it, but at the next restart, it would come back. Now it's a BitcoinMiner infecting my msiexec64.exe that once again reappers whenever my computer restarts. Not only that but it makes my browsers crash whenever I search for Farbar Recovery Tools, leaving me unable to see if said software can bring me a solution. I can search for anything else with no problem but as soon as I type farbar and press enter, instant crash. What logs could I provide here for the experts to analyze so they can find a way to fix this? Thanks in advance.
  10. Hi, recently i have been annoyed by this pop up(picture below) a lot, i tried deleting it in Windows Safe mode but it keep coming back in different folder. Now strange thing is malwarebytes keep detecting it and quarantine it but every time i turn my pc on, he is back. I do get performance issues, but strangely others malware products such as "zemana" and "Hitmanpro" never detects it. Another things that i dont understand is both of those two detect "syswow64" but malwayrebytes dont (syswow64 keeps getting delete every time and every time i turn my pc on he is back, same as bitcoinminer thing). I dont want to do fresh windows reinstall. Please help.
  11. Hello, I am in need of dire assistance, a virus has infected my computer and I have been trying for the last 6 days to kill it; my exams are close so I need this computer to do my bidding but this irritating little demon keeps me from doing anything with it it is also crashing my computer, nasty little thing. Just like the title says the bugger's name is RiskWare.bitcoinminer, I have tried many steps to eliminate this virus but have failed so far, I have used marwarebytes, hitmanpro and roguekiller.
  12. Hello, I was going to download a game called Stranded Deeps but it was a fake .iso but I didn't know it and I got a trojan that was very strong. My brother tried help me and installed this software with Premium Trail and scanned a few times, it removed over 45 virsuses and like 500 ad stuff. But this one keeps re-adding itself even when deleted by malwarebytes.. even after saying its gone everytime you close malwarebytes after retstart its up and running. We have scanned malwarebytes with rootkits and selected a disk where all my files are selected and the only one popping up is always this Trojan.BitCoinerminer called xmrig. Can anyone please help me? it takes 100% CPU instantly and I have 3.6 Ghz always when I have malwarebytes closed down its up 80% running. I am willing to provide with scans of .txt if u send me programs which actually can delete it cus it lierally wont get deleted from malwarebytes premium scans.
  13. Hello MWB Forums i have been trying to remove this malware for a few days now and it seems to keep popping back up. Is there anything i can do to permanently get rid of it? I've attempted to remove with MWB, HitmanPro, RogueKiller and Embisoft but to no success. Browsers have been cleaned and uninstalled too. The file seems to reappear after deletion however a reeboot is not required
