  1. Hello, Recently my PC started acting weird and I was wondering what's the problem. I found out that when I turn on Task Manager processor usage drops instantly from 100% to normal rate. I had this problem many years ago on a different PC (it turned out to be a bitcoin miner) and Malwarebytes scan worked like a charm, but now it doesn't help. What should I do to make my PC working like it should? Sorry for my poor English, i'm not native. :) Thanks for any help, I appreciate it. :)
  2. Hello, I recently noticed that when I am running my PC and open task manager I see the CPU usable at 70-100% for a moment before it drops to about 10%. I've followed the advice on https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/241749-cpu-usage-high-until-i-open-task-manager/ (as best as I can) which hasn't been able to fix it. I've ran multiple scans of Malwarebytes and while its detected 1 or 2 things it hasn't made a difference. Thanks, Hawk Malwarebytesfile.txt
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Recently i was searching for a program and I only found a weird link to download it turns out I had installed a virus https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/7f7ba51f11523589845d8ff2fc6ed5c3030cccd799ed35102321a549c3b39f89/detection the behavior of this virus effects some other files and even tho I scanned my computer and deleted all the quarantined files I found out that they reappeared. What can I do to remove this malware?
  6. I seem to have acquired a rather nasty Bitcoin miner (or I assume that's what it is). It seems to generate a random name and create a folder in Appdata/Low which I cannot access due to an access denied. It asks for administrator rights which when provided it still says access denied (these are my personal machines. I'm the only admin). I tried to take ownership via file security but I always get an access denied error and it says the current owner is unknown. It creates multiple threads using the same name as the folder it created which I cannot affect in any way. I can't kill them or restrict
  7. Hi everyone in the forum, i installed a package which contained virus as when the installation process was starting..... application were installed out of nowhere ( no intention), so i went to safe mode and ""threat scanned"" with Mbam and with mcaffee virus (normal mode) i discovered yesterday which i did not see before, that lux.exe is bitcoin mining the GPU and using lot of CPU, another thing i saw is that a bunch of scripts unknown to me are hidden in my C/....Appdata ...../Roaming directory. How do i remove all these, thinking deleting the files wont help at all.. ( windows
  8. So I have this nasty virus that started out as a bitcoin miner virus because every time I open taskmgr it goes up to 99% cpu and then goes back down. I though hmm maybe its a virus so i use Malwarebytes to see if I can delete it. Malwarebytes didn't detect anything so I thought it wasn't a virus i've tried everything nothing worked I reset my laptop to factory settings 3 times nothing worked. Also this may also be a rootkit because 1 time my whole laptop went unusable when I start up windows it says error program has not started and happened for all my programs on my computer I could not open
  9. Hello there. So for the last couple of months, I've been constantly getting high CPU usage from something that kept running at random times during the day. I was then able to discover that it was some form of bitcoin miner that has infected my system and using it to well "mine" bitcoins I guess. Bitdefender has been able to block it now when it appears but that doesn't mean that it has stopped trying to get back in. I've attached a screenshot of what Bitdefender has said and every time it appears, it always targets the same file and that file comes back even if I delete it. While the
  10. I've been trying removing svhost bitcoin miner virus ,but I couldn't I tried scaning my pc with RougeKiller and got some detected files/registries ,but not sure if I'm supposed to delete them
  11. Hello hard working malwarebytes community, as the thread title states I've caught a bitcoin virus which masquerades as the Java Update Scheduler (jusched.exe) and which starts by itself (even after killing the process several times) and makes my graphics card run at maximum power (as expected). I'd guess the other one in the task manager (Java Update Scheduler (32 bit)) is the original. Now I've read a couple of posts on this in this forum about the virus and the cleaning process and have already run Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit with no findings and ESET Online Scan found the threat und
  12. Hi, my GPU Load is spiking to 85% every 8 minutes while I game, and it stays at 85% for about a minute, then goes back to 20% GPU Load. Here are the Checkresult files, FRST file, and Addition file. It may or may not be a bitcoin miner, but if it isn't please tell me the problem. Thanks! Addition.txt CheckResults.txt FRST.txt
  13. Hello everyone, As the title says, i have a little problem with svchost.exe (which could also be the bitcoin miner). Kaspersky found something in C:\Windows\temp\svchost.exe around one month ago. I tried to fix it but it came back after every restart. As it did nothing to my pc and as it was called svchost.exe i thought that it is a mistake of Kaspersky. My gpu is on 100% while idling. As i had a bitcoin mining virus before, i rememberred the same symptom and did some things: Combo fix: I ran it once and it seemed to fix my problem until i restartet. Kaspersky: Was unable to do anythin

  16. Hello all. I am using regulary MalwareBytes Anti-Malware PRO. It was working amazing, but these late days erm.. maybe not. I have seen some notifications of Malwarebytes that the anti-malware is blocking some malicious websites. This was so annoying and I updated & full scanned my pc, it found 4 threats. The threats are; PUP.Optional.PrimeMiner - located in C:\WINDOWS\hev.exe (quarantined successfully) Trojan.Miner - located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\libcurl-4.dll (quarantined successfully) Trojan.Miner - located in C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Adobe\Flas
  17. My computer has become infected with a bitcoin miner which goes under the name of "postgres". It randomly opens up and uses all of my memory and makes my pc slow. I have tried to delete it and used scanning software but still it somehow manages to reinstall itself on my computer. Im getting really worried now, anyone know how I can remove it from my computer permanently?
  18. So, this has been happening for some time now. Everytime I use the computer (only my user, doesn't seem to be happening to anyone else but I'm not sure) I get this error message saying "Bitcoin-miner has stopped working.". This message pops up once every minute or two. It is EXTREMELY annoying. I've just been working around it but, now I need to remove it. I suspect it's using svchost but, I'm not 100% sure because it always crashes...so I can't really tell which process it may be using. I don't see a performance impact though like many other BTC trojans seem to do. I think I may have removed
  19. Yesterday, my hard disk got hit with a bitcoin miner virus (I saw this name in the task manager, my CPU just hung up everytime I started my computer). When I did end this process through the task manager, the CPU functioned normally. But the virus is still there in the hard disk which contains some important data. Would it be possible to remove that from there? I went through older forums about this virus/malware and found that I would need to run a scan using RogueKiller. I did that according to the instructions, please find the report attached below. RKreport_S_04282013_02d0824.txt Also, the
