  1. It was until yesterday when I started to hate my laptop when it suddenly started draining battery very fast and was heating unusually. I had recently been attacked by some severe malware and I think it's related to that. I may have removed many viruses like .lnk , .exe . The browser window used to suddenly pop up; after removing it, Tfiajedi.lnk installer was popping up. Now everything's fine but this battery issue isn't resolved. I have been wandering on google to find a solution. somehow I managed to find some solutions but didn't try as they were asking to install some software which is already the cause of my laptop being infected as I tried to find a free software and ended up here. Can someone help me fix this issue and tell me whether it really is a virus or my laptop's battery is malfunctioning. THANKS.
  2. Hello, I have been using my computer with out issues, and still without any performance ones. Although I have been experiencing lots of suspicious things on my pc happening, i don't know if they really are caused by malware but i would like to assume so. None of my scanners pick up anything they always come up clean, I use malwarebytes premium as well as the full version of superantispyware. And windows defender is enabled, windows 10. So what i have been encountering is an icon popping up very quickly and then disappearing on my taskbar. the icon doesn't show more than the blackbox and the blueline underneath before it disappears but will tab me out of a game etc. Also my taskbar and desktop icons flash/refresh randomly sometimes but only flash once. Also i started getting audio pops randomly but prob just headphones maybe. And the next one is my cursor, when it changes from hovering over text to something i can click it will sometimes glitch and bulge in size. I can also see a second text cursor pop up on the right side of the glitching cursor in some cases. I would be willing to send a video from my phone of it happening if needed. My pc runs fine though, but i do idle around 30% of memory used it could be the malware but I'm not sure. Just really looking for someone to tell me what they think and maybe help me fix the issues.
  3. Run a scan and pull a bunch of detections. On the results screen, before taking any actions, I looked at the path stated for multiple items, but they are completely missing from the folder paths. This is WITH show hidden files on and hide protected system files unchecked, with an admin account. Does MWB remove the files from the directory before you decide to quarantine/exclude? And then just restore them if you decide not to quarantine?
  4. Hi all, MalwareBytes version: (Premium) 3.5.1.25522 Please see 2 attached screenshots. NOTE: Same user just different name as I changed the name a while ago. Was just wondering how I got it? I was playing an online game, then an hour or so after I closed down the game my PC froze whilst on Google Chrome (Scroll Lock etc LEDs all worked). I have an automatic MalwareBytes scan every day and the most recent scan came up with 1 threat: RIskWare.HeuristicsReservedWordExploit located in C:\Users\[Name]AppData\Local\Temp\explorer.exe Can someone explain how this occured? I don't click on links in emails and I only go to secured sites. I am the only person who uses this computer. Soon after I quarantined and deleted it I got a Windows update (turned off updates in services.msc) and then a few seconds later I got a Ransomware Protection App name - \$WINDOWS.~BT\ Sources\SetupHost.exe Protected folder was from Uplay pictures --- Am I just being paranoid? :') --- All information is gratefully appreciated, best regards Addition.txt FRST.txt
  5. I've been recently infected by downloading a sketchy application. As soon as I felt something was off I stopped it and ran Malwarebytes which deleted most of the viruses. There is two backdoor malware I cannot delete. I've also noticed after this event my computer has been freezing a little every 10sec or so... I believe this might be the cause of it. I came onto the forums to see if there was a solution to deleting the two unwanted malware. Addition.txt FRST.txt MalwareLog.txt
  6. A month ago I connected a flash drive to my laptop to transfer files from it to another PC. The flash drive showed duplicate files which I tried deleting to no avail. Apparently it was malware or virus which then infected my laptop. In a short space of time my applications and programs stopped launching and the pop up message eg "C:\Program Files (86)\GlassWire\GlassWire.exe is not a valid Win32 application" would pop up. I then checked the files and found every exe file was now 0kb. Office programs open briefly then a pop up message "Microsoft Office has encountered a problem with licensing and will need to close. If this problem persists,uninstall and reinstall your product." After much labor in online forums I downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and did the scans. It Identified some 63 threats and I "quarantined" them. My problem still persists though after using FixExec i re-installed about 2 programs including Firefox which now work. I can't practically do this for all exe files which are still at 0kb. Can anybody help. I'm really desperate. I'd appreciate all the help I can get.

  11. Good afternoon, lately my internet connection started being really slow so I thought it could be caused by a malware, then I decided to install and run Malwarebytes on my PC since Windows Defender didn't help me at all. This problem only occurs temporally, then my connection works normally for a few hours, so I don't think it's about hardware. Malwarebytes found many threats which I've already deleted, but I'll post its scan log anyway. It solved an issue that made the Google website be slow, but my internet is still failing a lot. Of course, I've been talking to my internet provider company, but they found no issues, and my speed should be 300 Mb/s as it's shown by the speed tests but it's clearly not. Furthermore this is not happening to any other devices connected via Wi-Fi. At this point I'm totally lost, so I'd be grateful if you could help me. Thank you very much.

  12. I had problems that had prevented me from installing or using any anti-virus software. I had to run a special build of Malwarebytes anti-rootkit from here to solve that problem and install Malware Bytes. Here's the forum where I posted my problems and was helped. I was redirected to this post and was able to do the threat scan; however, whenever I click on the link for the Farbar Recovery Scan tool, my browser closes. I am using Microsoft Edge as I had to uninstall both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox when they faced numerous problems and refused to open. I was strongly recommended to post here despite having Malware Bytes running on my computer. Here are the logs: quarantine log.txt threat log.txt system-log.txt mbar-log-2018-04-09 (12-49-04).txt mbar-log-2018-04-09 (17-18-19).txt
  13. At least once a minute, for 15 minutes, from 11:27 to 11:42 local time, MalwareBytes notified me that it was blocking an outgoing connection to howlong.top at the IP address 109.206.182.9 and the port 60089, referencing that the connection was coming from Chrome and telling me the website was being blocked for malware threats. I've been using the premium trial of MalwareBytes for a bit now, and it expires in about 3 days. I performed a manual scan that found nothing as soon as I realized something may be wrong, and after it concluded, I got about 1 or 2 more notifications that the site had been blocked, but it has now stopped while I've been writing this. malwareblock.txt scanreport.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt
  14. I managed to somehow infect myself with the "Print driver host/wmcagent" virus(es). As you can see in the pictures, these are running in my task manager. When attempting to close them, it says "Access Denied," the same applies if I try to open their location. I have found their folder locations, however I get the same error when attempting to delete them. I've used RogueKiller, Malwarebytes, Avast, McAfee, CCleaner, MBAR, AdwCleaner, and FRST. At this point, I'm desperate to do anything to get this thing off of my computer. This error shows for all of the folders shown in the screenshot above, and is the same error that occurs when attempting to end the process. I've tried changing permissions, however even that won't solve the issue. Any help, guys?
  15. I recently got a bad virus that seems to be going around right now. There's multiple instances of Windows Process Manager processes open and when they are, firefox often lags and freezes for a few minutes and my programs open slowly. I ran malwarebytes and a couple other anti-viruses a couple days ago and thought I had gotten rid of it, but the wmcagent was still there, and now the Windows Process Manager processes are back and its just as bad as it was. Cant open file location as it says permission denied but I see the folder in C:\Users\User\Appdata\Local named msblgav where it's coming from but I can't delete it or modify it. Please help. I have malwarebytes but it isnt removing it.
  16. As I said in the title, a blank process in consuming arount 50-60% of my CPU. I tried with lot of antivirus to fix this issue but can't solve the issue. But sometime it doesn't appear after signing in my OS. please help me with any possible solution asap.
  17. Hello, I just had a bit of an issue today and on the 4th. Malwarebytes blocked an outbound connection multiple times (Three times today, twice on the 4th). All five times it has happened has been with the same domain and IP address. I'm not very good with computers, so I was wondering am I possibly infected? And if I am, what can I do to fix this? AVG detects nothing wrong with my computer. Thank you for any help! EDIT: I'll just add that I've always gone of the same sites for years and never had any issue with any of them. Today and on the 4th, Malwarebytes blocked the connection pretty much a few minutes after I open Chrome. After that everything seems to be fine. Here is a copy of the most recent blocked connection. Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 4/9/18 Protection Event Time: 5:41 PM Log File: 945b36d2-3c4f-11e8-a005-18dbf2281498.json Administrator: Yes -Software Information- Version: 3.4.5.2467 Components Version: 1.0.342 Update Package Version: 1.0.4670 License: Trial -System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 16299.309) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System -Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 , , Blocked, [-1], [-1],0.0.0 -Website Data- Category: Malware Domain: f1hungary.fw.hu IP Address: 217.65.97.118 Port: [64169] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe (end)
  18. I have this problem, where my c: drive always gets filled-up, and when I transfer files, I see a bunch of files with these names: e0223fsd.au or something. These files are hidden on my pc, and just some time ago, it had 0 bytes although I cleared-up space before that! Yes, I use an anti-virus. I have windows 10 home 64-bit. Please, I need help. Resetting my pc Is just pain. Thanks.
  19. Hey Winterstar, I am having the same issue, started today. I had about 10 notices today all outbound, I am fairly good with computers, and could not find an infection on my machine. I will keep an eye on this post, maybe someone will have an answer.
  20. Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this in. This is my first time posting on these forums. I was wondering if there's a way to confirm if a USB flash drive is free of viruses, malware, and/or ransomware? I used this USB flash drive back on Feb. 23rd with a computer (Windows XP) that was a part of a network. The server was infected with Ransomware and all the files on the shared network were encrypted on Feb. 25th. Supposedly nobody used any of the computers on the network on the 25th, so I suspect that the infection happened earlier and activated the Ransomware at a later date (I don't know if this is even possible). I always remove the flash drive from the computer when I'm not using it, however, since I don't know when exactly the infection occurred, I really don't know if it was infected or not. The tech that was hired was unable to decrypt the files and couldn't contact the hacker to pay the ransom, so we ended up replacing the computer with Windows 10 and restoring some of the files from an older backup. There are files I'd like to transfer from the flash drive to the new Windows 10 computer (Computer #1) and to an older spare computer running Windows XP (Computer #2), as the backup the tech used did not have copies of these files. After avoiding the flash drive for weeks, I decided to test it out on Computer #1 (Apr. 3rd), since I thought Windows 10 would be more secure. After plugging it in, there was a notification saying "There is a problem with this drive. Scan the drive now and fix it." I ran Windows Defender and the scan detected "no threats" on the USB flash drive. I also ran a full system scan and it was also clean. Since then, I have been saving documents to the flash drive and opening files on it (always while using Computer #1), but I've refrained from copying the flash drive's files to Computers #1 and #2 because of a lingering fear of infection. Every time I plug it in, I always get the same notification to scan & fix it, but every time I scan it with Windows Defender, no threats are ever found. It's been over two weeks now since I've tried inserting the flash drive and nothing bad has happened to Computer #1 (or the rest of the network for that matter). I've avoided using the flash drive on Computer #2, because I worry Windows XP will be more vulnerable or the infection will only effect XP but not 10. Questions: 1) MAIN QUESTION: Is the USB Flash Drive safe to use (free of Ransomware, Malware, Viruses, etc.)? 2) Does Ransomware usually wait a period of time before activating or take awhile to encrypt files? 3) Are Windows Defender and Avast Antivirus even capable of detecting Ransomware or am I wasting time running scans with them? 4) Have I made a big mistake by opening files on the flash drive with Computer #1, and spread malware on the network? 5) Does Ransomware even make copies of itself and spread like viruses do? EDIT: Another thing I noticed is that the Flash Drive is supposed to have a size of 16 GB, but according to Windows Explorer, its total size is only 14.9 GB. Is this just false advertisement of the product, or is something wrong with the flash drive? Notes: USB Flash Drive: SanDisk Cruzer Glide 16GB Computer #1: Windows 10 Computer #2: Windows XP (Service Pack 3) Windows Defender: Updates automatically (up to date) - for Computer #1 Avast Antivirus: Updates automatically (up to date) - for Computer #2 * The USB Flash Drive is usually plugged into a computer for 2 hours or less. I very rarely leave it in for a long duration. Thanks for your help, T-Ruth
  21. Hello, I have recently discovered this virus through my task manager that is called Windows Process Manager 32 Bit and it has been killing my cpu performance and eating my battery life. I have researched for hours and hours to solve this problem and I realized that I cannot remove it on my own and I need help. I have malware bytes installed and I have attached my malwarebytes scan report. I have also downloaded the FRST program and attached my FRST.txt file and the addition.txt file. I would greatly appreciate any help ASAP. Thank You scan log for Malware bytes.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt
  22. Bitdefender always removes the same thing after a restart "Item was deleted. Threat name:Generic.Application.CoinMiner.1.CE277487. Path:C:\Windows\System32\diskdriver.exe.
  23. I had ran a rootkit scan got 3 winzips. I removed these and after doing so malwarebytes has been having problems contacting the license server, it asks me to check my network settings. I could restore them but i have read their are no necessary rootkits for malwarebytes to run and this only happens on one of the two computers i have malwarebytes installed on.
  24. Hello, I noticed the following has been added to the malware bytes context menu in they system tray. It looks like the malware is trying to make it easy to add it to the exclusion list... smart.. evil smart. How can I remove this? Version below. The alerts are from blocked URLs.
