  1. https://i.imgur.com/vmgKFmh.png I recently downloaded a few files, and I think my computer probably got infected because of those files as they weren't particularly from a source that I would trust. I did remove the files shown in the screenshot but I'm still paranoid concerning the data and security of my computer.
  2. Potential game launcher malware, I would like to see if they are a false positive or not. Here's the log, as well as a sample of the files in question. As a sidenote, these files are indeed "cracked" game files, and I do not get the same result with the originals. Note that also, only some of the varied language .exe files were detected as potential malware at first, and on a second scan I believe it determined another file to be potential malware, too. I would mainly like to know, if possible, if the files are indeed malware, or if they are only being detected as such due to the "cracked" nature of the files. Thank you for reading.

  3. Hello! I'm having an issue with a malware that apparently is hiding in my system32. I'm not really good with this kind of thing, so i decided to ask for help here. This is my problem: So i woke up this morning,turned on my PC and the first thing i did was open Steam and try to play a game i installed last week.(Note:The game worked perfectly fine yesterday.) And the thing is:This game uses Battleye Anti-Cheat,and i can't open the game without it, so when battleye was starting, it did'nt want to open my game due to a problem with blocked files,(All of them from system32) so i searched the internet for a fix, and found out that this problem happens because i have a malware in my computer, so i installed MalwareBytes and tried to clean it up. But even after i did, My game still would'nt work and show the same problem, Because of that, i came to the conclusion that the malware affecting my computer was actually hidden in system32 because the blocked files that battleye could'nt load were all from Sys32. Notes:I have installed some stuff i did'nt completely trust recently,and i can talk about them if needed. Other than my game not working, my computer is still functional,and runs smoothly. The image below shows the issue on the game,the problems on the print are some of the files that got blocked(i'm not sure but i have an impression they're increasing over time,but i'm not really sure).
  4. I have a few Malware showing up and Malwarebytes isn't locating it. I tried using the Techtool program but it crashes. I did run FRST and here are the results. I am not sure what to do with the results here and a little nervous having the problem deleting the files. Thanks for the help. Jim Addition.txt FRST.txt
  5. Hello, I recently downloaded an application from an unreliable source and now I have some kind of malware/adware application on my PC. Filename: 37m7u9aww51.exe [Displays as "promptbooks (32 bit) in Task Manager] File location: C:\ProgramData\Task Protect 2.3\37m7u9aww51.exe Keeps re-opening and duplicating itself secretly, and tries to redirect me to sites such as shoptowin.ru, popandshop.ru etc. Hyper scan with Malwarebytes didn't resolve the issue, neither did a custom scan on the directory shown above. It has also been added to the startup list, but I've disabled it. File location from startup tab in Task Manager: File location from the background tasks in Task Manager:
  6. All, I am having trouble finding/removing an infection from my computer. I noticed it the other day and have been battling it since. My primary AV is Bitdefender AntiVirus (Free) which logs constantly that it is blocking infections (example below) and I also have Malwarebytes Premium installed (post infection), logs attached. If I run full scans, including rootkits for malwarebytes, both scanners comes back clean but my BitDefender still reports that it is blocking infections all day long. I have attached FRST, Additions and malwarebytes threat scan logs. Any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated. Bitdefender Log Example: "Item was blocked. Threat name: Trojan.GenericKD.31067079. Path: C:\Windows\Temp\tmp00003cc\tmp\000001f1." Addition.txt FRST.txt MalwarebytesRpt-12.27.18.txt MalwarebytesRpt-12.27.18(2).txt
  7. Hi, i'm trying to know if i have a malware on my laptop or something like that if someone can help me with it i will appreciate it. thanks
  8. I'm running Windows 7 on my laptop. It recently started behaving strangely by attempting to delete every file I click on. The "Are you sure you want to move this file to Recycle Bin" pop up appears. When I attempt to close it,multiple pop ups appear with each attempt to close. It's to such an extent that you can't do anything practical on the machine for about 10 minutes as you try to close literally hundreds of Recycle Bin pop dialog boxes. Any help with this is greatly appreciated as I'm stuck right now
  9. I use Synmantec antivirus and like after every 10 mins it shows Miner.Bitcoinminer 7 activity detected, and normal scans can't seem to be able to get rid of it, please someone guide me on how to remove this malware.
  10. I was using Yahoo mail in Mozilla Firefox when a warning popped up saying, "Your Windows 10 is infected with 3 viruses" The link in the address bar changed to: https://www.mscheck002.club/sk/fa9ff2ca/us/?clid=c45693d5bc364beb8cffa6e9f15eff8d9ca7&p1=74070&p2=&pre_tpl=6 Is this malware? The last time it happened I ran Malwarebytes and found nothing. Thanks
  11. Hello, I'm puzzled by the fact that I keep getting random notices that Malwarebytes has blocked an attempt to connect to members.chello.nl, which is supposedly a site infected by ransomware. I'm glad that Malwarebytes is blocking these attempts. My question is, Why is my computer making these attempts? I have never used that site. I am not trying to open that site. There seems to be some automatic process that is initiating these attempts. I assume it is some kind of malware. How do I find it and get rid of it? I've run a full Malwarebytes Premium scan, which showed zero threats. I've also run an AdwCleaner scan, with no threats detected. Thanks for any advice! Lance

  14. Hey there, I am Vicenç, a Spanish student in KTH Stockholm trying to finish my MSc degree. Recently, my laptop (Acer TravelMate P) has slowed down a lot. When investigating it, the performance of my CPU is questionable. When I launch internet browsers, the CPU usage spikes. In addition, my task administrator reveals processes I have no idea how they got there. After googling most of them, they are normal processes, it is just they take much RAM and CPU usage. More than one would normally expect. I noticed as well the creation of random folders with the name of '!EndpointProtectionFolderDo NotDiscard' in Files, Images, Videos and Music, when I never installed Sandblast software. The images are like this: I ran several antimalware programs in safe mode, but none of them detected any infection. The usage of memory is really strange and it is making me worried. I hope some of you can help, I would profoundly appreciate. As someone who relies heavily on his PC, 2 weeks without a laptop would be terrible. I remain at your disposal. Best, Vicenç

    So ive got this issue where, everytime i open my league of legends client, its suddenly crash and detects the svchost.exe as a mawalre, even tho i delete it many times it just restore automatically. thanks in advance
  16. Hi, So the other day I decided to start using avg again instead of bit defender, downloaded avg and it took around 3 hours to "install", eventually I canceled this and immediately got "recycle bin is corrupted" message. I then tried to run Malwarebytes but got told I didn't have permission to use my D drive ( pc has SSD C drive with windows and D drive HDD for data). My account is definitely the admin. After some digging, I managed to boot in safe mode get Malwarebytes running on my c drive and deleted the contents of the recycle bin and all downloaded files within the last 2 weeks. However, I still don't have access to delete or edit files on my D drive so can only assume its still lurking in my files. Could anyone help? I will post my FRST file when I get back home.
  17. For the past few days, the Firefox browser on my PC has been opening up to the Microsoft or Google homepage, despite it being set to Firefox home. Changing the homepage to something else doesn't seem to work, although new tabs aren't affected. This prompted me to look in my NoScript extension, where I briefly noticed something along the lines of "cdn.immereeako". I looked it up and found a very detailed article about some "iTranslator" malware. It mentions the same browser redirect that I've experienced, as well as a folder in my (C:\ProgramData) that was created on the 22nd of this month. Unfortunately, McAfee, Spybot Search & Destroy and Malwarebytes have been unable to get rid of the issue, so I'm pretty stumped on getting rid of this thing.

    Site blocking

    I am also having the same issue. I have run all the tools to no avail. I have attached the requested files. Obviously, I don't want to just ignore the messages, I want to actually delete the adware or whatever it is. Help please. Thanks. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  19. Hi Team, Hope this finds you well. I am struggling with a virus: ”PUP.Optional.Legacy”. Initially, this virus was showing up in my malware scan. I ran through a few procedures, and now it doesn't. However, it is still showing up in my adware scan. I keep going through "clean & repair," but it does not remove the PUP. I've attached my scan logs for your review. Can you please assist with the next steps?? Kindest, Maurice AdwCleaner[S02].txt Malware scan report.txt FRST.txt Addition.txt
  20. The night of the 17th, I was using the Facebook app while suddenly a download in progress icon appeared in the status bar. I pulled down the notifications screen just in time to catch a glimpse of the word "attackers" followed by a bunch of symbols like $ before it disappeared. I could not find anything in the downloads folder list, ESET premium that was monitoring my phone and all downloads hadn't even detected it, and I tried in vain to search online using only the selected phrases I had managed to glimpse. Then by sheer luck, today, I managed to find a thread on this problem with the full details. The message had been "attackers on <b>%1$s</b> might atte..." with a download in progress while using Facebook app. Which I assume is completed as "might attempt to steal your information" or something. I tried using this phrase to search about it on Google, and while nothing specific to this problem came up, a list of generic information results on various types of network attacks, DDos, man in the middle and zero day attacks came up, which has me really worried. I am still using the phone as is, I really don't know much about technology related things. Please advise me what I should do now, if I should just turn off the phone or something. The person in the other thread said he had reset his phone and the problem had reappeared when he had signed into Facebook again, so now I'm not sure if a simple factory reset will help and I will probably need to install a custom ROM or something. I'm using Android 7.0 in a Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime. I got a software update to Oreo just an hour earlier and I wonder if updating the software will help remove whatever malware/spyware/hacking application got installed. Please help, I am logged into all my accounts through this phone and it's already been like 4 days since the message first appeared damage control is needed. Thank you very much. If you know anything, anything, please let me know it's very urgent.
  21. I have the same problem--smartlink.cool--but I do not want to "silence" the warning, I want to find and remove the offending source. I have performed all the steps in the post by miekiemoes but the problem remains. I also ran AdwCleaner to no avail. What can I do?
  22. I keep getting popups from MalwareBytes saying it's blocked smartlink.cool - which is nice - but it would be good to be able to say: "Just block this, log it, but don't bother telling me every time."
