  1. So I was trying to download a crack for a random Application and I did something stupid and disabled antivirus just to open the file I downloaded and I'm pretty sure that I got a virus/malware/something bad now. a lot of random stuff started to get downloaded to my pc and I cannot access apps like discord cuz it says I got no permissions and same when I try downloading Malwarebytes or other antiviruses. idk what to do please help.
  2. Hello, last week I have found 3 different processes bumping my CPU up to 100%. All of them were located in the temp folder but were named lsass.exe svchost.exe and nv… .exe. I figured they were not windows processes because they weren't located in the system32 folder and were run alongside the real processes. I have managed to eliminate them through Malwarebytes but I noticed my computer was still acting weird by asking for my onedrive and outlook password all the time. I was also unable to reactivate windows defender (even before I installed Malwarebytes), I kept getting a message that this is controlled by my IT administrator which doesnt make sense because Its a personal laptop. Also today my Facebook account got hacked and deleted so it raised my suspicion that there are definetly some left overs. If you could please provide assistance I would be forever grateful, just want my laptop back. Thank you!
  3. I was subscribed to Malwarebytes for 1 month, my smartphone was hit by a malware called Adware.cootek (Touchpal 2015) and PUP. riskware.autoins.VIVO (vivo browser) and I can't delete this Malware, both malware get access to all my Smartphones, please !!!
  4. I managed to grab apk file of beautymake malware from /system/priv-app location in my android phone. When I scanned using Google Play Protect it shows that one harmful app detected. After this, I uploaded this apk file to virustotal and 25 antivirus detect it as malicious app. Please find a way to remove it from mobile. It can't be removed directly because it is system-app. password is infected. Thanks Makeup.zip
  5. 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).
  6. 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

  8. 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=)
  9. 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
  10. 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.

  11. 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:
  12. 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
  13. 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

  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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!
  25. 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.
