  2. Hello, I built a new pc a month ago and it's been doing great until a few days ago that I noticed my cpu at 50% plus when idle/browsing with no heavy programs running. Everytime I run the task manager or similar programs I downloaded online, the CPU usage will always go down to around 1-5%. I ran a total scan using avast and I dont see any malicious file. I can't see what process/program is the culprit because everytime I check it on the task manager, the usage will suddenly drop and I can no longer see which one is using all the cpu. I've seen similar posts online and here, and tried to resolve it but I dont see any suspicious file and I really don't know which process is the malware. My Setup is: i7 8700k Processor, GTX 1060 6gb, 8GB Ram, Windows 10. I hope you can help me find some solution or better yet pinpoint the cause. Forgive my english. Thanks a lot=)
  3. The website in question is currently being reported of having malware. We checked and after a thorough security scan for all vulnerabilities, there are none found. We have taken upon ourselves just in case to add additional security to the website/blog to ensure nothing malicious will happen. http://cedutica.com/ https://www.virustotal.com/#/url/ebda765d36ed486af4aef0a4606f19c3b27ac6bbff132288fe0c63d7bcf881d2/detection Please can someone from support add this to a global white list. Thank you
  4. 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.

  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. 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
  7. 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

  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Hello everyone, I just read this article and got a little worried: https://www.howtogeek.com/fyi/bing-is-pushing-malware-when-you-search-for-chrome/ I have three quick questions that I hope someone could help me with: 1. If you actually run that phony installer, will it still act as the official installer? As in everything will act normally but you actually have a hidden malware in your Chrome? 2. If I installed Chrome a while ago, how can I check that my installation is genuine and not a fake Google Chrome? I don' have the installer anymore. 3. Would a Malwarebytes scan detect a bad installation? I ran a scan and it didn't find anything. Thank you and have an awesome day!
  19. Posted Yesterday, 01:59 PM I'm a completely novice computer user. Recently, I have been having some malware issues on my PC which is Windows 10. I already have an antivirus, Quick Heal Total Security, and recently, it detected a Coinhive mining malware on my computer, plus, it keeps showing pop up windows that it has blocked access to multiple harmful websites even when I'm accessing reliable websites like Amazon and others. I researched a bit on the Coinhive virus and found out some serious things, and so I'm currently scanning my computer for all kinds of malware, spyware, adware, rootkits using a variety of tools just to be safe. I know I'm being paranoid, but better be paranoid than have my personal data compromised. So far, I've used Malwarebytes to run a full system scan, TDSSKiller for rootkits, and a full system scan by my installed antivirus. All three of them came up clean after that one Coinhive virus was removed. I'm also planning to use more scanners like AdW, ESET, Rkill, as many as I have found to be on the safe side. Now, I started running a scan with GMER for rootkits today, in safe mode, however, the first time, mid-scan, the window just disappeared off the screen. I ran it a second time, and it only showed two entries in the log list before a message was displayed that my system had run into an error and needed to restart. I booted the computer into safe mode once again and started GMER for the third time, and same thing happened. Two logs, then mid-scan, same error message and restart. So, now I'm thinking I do have a rootkit that is stopping GMER from running a scan. I really don't know what to do right now. I also know that GMER is supposed to be for advanced users only, but my plan was to just get the results, save them and then show them to an expert, either here or if not possible, then to someone I know. However, given the fact that the scan won't even get halfway through, I don't know what to do. Would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. GMER not being able to complete the scan does mean that I have some kind of rootkit stopping it from working, right? Or could there be any other reasons for that? Thank you very much. P.S. I know I need to backup my data before I run any tools recommended by experts here, but I'm actually worried about infecting my backup as well. As I have already mentioned before, my computer was infected by a coinhive mining virus before, and even though it's removed now, I haven't deleted any old system restore points or registry files so it's possible the virus still persists. Plus, since my computer may have other kinds of malware right now including rootkits, if I try to back up my data now, isn't there a good possibility that I'm also infecting my back up? I back up all my data on an external hard drive, and they are even more susceptible to infection, just by plugging it in to my computer right now could transmit the malware. So, if in the end of the malware removal process, I lose some of my data and have to restore it from my backup, am I facing a chance of re-infection and also damage to my external hard drive? If so, then could you please suggest a safe way to backup all of my data? My data does not contain any applications or program files, it's only composed of documents, videos, music and images which are all stored in D and E drives, I'm not going to be backing up anything from C drive. Is there no way to safely backup, or backup in a way so that when I restore it back on the clean PC, it does not reinfect? Because I currently have some important files on my computer that I can't lose, I know there is no 100% guaranteed way that if I backup it won't be infected, but how should I reduce the risks? I don't want to lose any files by running scans with the anti-malware tools, so please point me in the right direction of backing up my files relatively safely before I can use the suggested tools and post the logs. Please suggest a safe backup method so I can proceed with the removal process.
  20. I'm currently using Malwarebytes for PC and Android Phone, Few days ago while Scanning my Android Phone , Malwarebytes just detected a Malware the malware name is Android/PUP.Riskware.Autoins.Fota I just wanna ask if this malware is dangerous and what the virus can do to me and my phone. I search the virus name in google but the result is nothing. Hoping to get an answer.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.

  23. 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?
  24. 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.
  25. I have ADS X malware installed, and unable to delete it. Each time I search for anything I get several extra responses at the top of the result lists, and a small almost imperceprtible "ADS X" text at the right where I can close that irrelevant results, but still the listing has several bad responses. MALWAREBYTES was unable to remove that ADS X , Malwarebytes is not aware of it existence. REIMAGE CLEANER detects the malware but I don't want to pay them for the removal. Why Malwarebytes is not detecting it but others do? ....
