  1. I can't download the most recent version of malwarebytes (nor can it access the internet), can't redeem my premium malwarebytes code, nor properly access windows defender. I believe that my laptop is infected with a virus but I can't detect it, I would greatly appreciate help. FRST.txt Addition.txt threat_scan.txt
  2. I was downloading a cracked Minecraft launcher off of Shiginima (which many places say is a safe website) but once I clicked download it didn't even download the launcher and just gave me a bunch of PUPS and PUMS, plus 7 threats. I immediately scanned with Malwarebytes and I promptly quarantined all of which it detected. After a restart I scanned again and it still found 7 PUPS, so I got rid of those too. I am doing a full custom scan now and so far it has had 1 more detection. Now that I look back on this I see I was being very stupid and just shouldn't have trusted the sketchy download. Anyway, the reason I am making this post is so I can make sure there are no keyloggers or anything that could be a potential security breach for the passwords being used on this PC. I'm changing them all anyway on a different computer, but I just want to make sure here. Greatly appreciated for anyone who helps in replies. list.txt list2.txt
  3. In addition, my computer's overall performance has slowed significantly as well. Opening web pages and applications takes much longer than it usually did. Something even as simple as right-clicking a file will take close to a minute to open the menu. My detection history shows some detections in the past few days, so I am suspecting that that may be the culprit, however my most recent threat scans have shown no threats detected or quarantined. I have attached my FRST.txt, Addition.txt, a screenshot of my threat scan checking for updates, a screenshot of my detection history, and the log of my most recent successful threat scan.

  4. Hello, I recently purchased a DVD from eBay containing Hirens Boot Disk from a seller. Today I happened to run a virus scan while the disk was in my drive so it also scanned the disk and found a virus called Win32/Triggre!rfn which I found out can give hackers remote access and hijacks pc's for cryptocurrency mining. Before I bought the disk my pc was already acting strange so I thought I had a virus at that time even though no anti-virus software could find anything. I am trying decide if I should contact eBay and report this seller but I need to be absolutely sure the virus was already on the disk. This is where I need help. I know it's possible for viruses to copy themselves to any media so is it possible that I already had the virus and it copied itself on to the disk during one of the many times it was in my DVD RW drive? I cannot tell if the disk is rewritable or not, is there a way to tell? I've also read that it may even be possible for non RW disks to be written to more than once like +R and -R so is that also possible? I would really appreciate any help and advice on what to do. If this eBay seller is selling and scamming people with infected software, he needs to be stopped and held accountable and I don't want anyone else make the same mistake I did to buy these disks. Looks like he has sold a lot of disks already.
  5. Hi, I am not sure where the mb scan logs are. FRST.txt Addition.txt

  7. Hi, I've recently become aware that my PC is likely infected with some malware, and I'm having issue installing any antimalware software to remove it, getting the above error. This is happening when trying to install either malwarebytes or mbar, on a windows 10 install. Any help would be appreciated, Cheers
  8. Someone just told me a file I just downloaded was a cookie logger, I couldn't find anything that says how these work. I never did run the program, but I still want to know if it could have infected my computer! Please help, even if cookie loggers are fine, answer the question anyway. They showed me pictures of things the logger did, so I believe that they can actually do something.
  9. Hello, as described on the "I'm infected" topic (https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/9573-im-infected-what-do-i-do-now/) I did all the indications, I now need help to know what to do please. The laptop has been very slow for a long time but I want to clear everything now, basically when I make an analysis with malwarebytes or kaspersky antivirus or any softwares of this kind it doesn't find anything, but I see it: the pc is very very slow and isn't too old, on top of that it has great components (nvidia 740m, intel core i7 etc...) that's why after doing some research on the subject I think it's a rootkit. Using hitman pro too, on a random automatic daily analysis it has managed to found a threat, that I couldn't delete, that neither malwarebytes nor kaspersky found afterwards. Please help, the files asked for in the topic should be uploaded, thank you for your attention I hope the problem can be solved, thank you again. Addition.txt FRST.txt Malwarebytes.txt
  10. I recently noticed my paid subscription to Malwarebytes kept crashing partway through scans. I also have avg paid full protection and somehow I still got infected even though I’m very careful and clean. Avg cannot detect either, both on max settings. Went to safe mode, cannot run windows defender scans, cannot run avg, Malwarebytes cannot detect anything. Really need help cleaning my machine, please help!! No downloads or extra files and cannot find a virus although I’m a novice at that.
  11. HI, Few hours ago my system got infected, I have read a lot of forums and have applied many tutorials to restore it, Most of it is restored as it was earlier installing many apps and shortcuts on desktops, that thing is gone now. What left is that it has infected sysWOW64/installshield/setup.exe which was trying to connect to some mining pools, I have deleted the setup.exe by becoming the owner of files ( apparently trustedinstaller was owner) After the setup.exe was deleted, now chrome.exe tries to visit some site which is blocked by Malwarebytes. I want to completely restore the system and would request the team to help me in this matter. I have logs of Malwarebytes, MB Adware remover, Farbar recovery.

  12. My computer has been acting bogged down for a little while but nothing too terrible but I've recently discovered my husband may have very well downloaded some type of virus through vuze. There are a couple of .exes in the task manager I can't identify nor end or delete (access is denied) but malwarebytes is turning up nothing. I also tried to uninstall vuze and it causes the computer to completely shut down and restart itself. The .exes that I've found and can't remove are exizkpasvc.exe, upkdwag.exe (multiple of this one), and vdhipco.exe. Google searches have turned up nothing on any of them. Where should I start on removing this stuff since malwarebytes is having no luck with it?
  13. Hi, I have downloaded OSX Sierra (10.12.6) yesterday from Hackintosh website, since I couldn't download it from the App Store. The file was 5.03GB. The installation went smoothly, installer and everything looked legit. When it finished I scanned the system with Malwarebytes. When scanning I noticed it's going through some weird items, and I don't know if they are on my computer or is Malwarebytes just looking for them on the system? It only goes through those files, nothing else (like documents etc.). List of items: Trojan.SteamStealer.CSGO Adware.OperatorMac Adware.Crossrider Adware.Mindspark Adware.The Player Adware.Kilim Adware.IronCore Adware.SnapDo Adware.Linkury Adware.MixPlugin Adware.Aqualious Adware.OneSearch Adware.VNPapps Adware.ExtensionsSystems Adware.Vidx/MacVX Adware.MySearch Adware.PremierOpinion Adware.Conduit Adware.FairyTale PUP.logKext Keylogger PUP.Jawego PUP.Hotger PUP.PCVARK PUP.NikoffSecurity PUP.WebWatcher PUP.MacRemover PUP.JDI PUP.Aobo Keylogger PUP.Award Keylogger PUP.Optional.Crossrider There were few other items, but it passed too fast for me to take the names. Also, I've performed full system scan using Avast, and BitDefender, but nothing came up. Should I wipe off everything of the disk, and get clean iOS, or is the one I'm using safe? Thanks
  14. Computer is running slow, something is posting desktop shortcuts to my desktop to the point it is over filled and the icons are just stacking on top of each other, weird ? missing files and can not access my downloads or my documents.

  15. Hello, I believe I am currently infected as I can't open MB when not in Safe Mode (analysis carried out in Safe Mode didn't identify any threat). I managed to get FRST to work in Safe Mode and got the following files. What should I do? Please keep in mind that I can't access this thread from my infected computer so provide direct download links. Thanks! FRST.txt Addition.txt
  16.

  18. Hi, I've run into a Trojan that I am having difficulty removing. The issue arose after allowing my son to use my computer (first mistake). He disable protection and downloaded a program file and installed it. To nobodies surprise (except my son) the program was infected with some pretty nasty stuff. I will spare you all the bloody details and cut to the chase. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64. I use Malwarebytes (MWB) daily on startup and have Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) for real time protection (I know, I know - but I don't do anything high risk online except let my son use my computer). My first action was to see what programs had been installed and to uninstall them - there were 7 programs and they all seemed to uninstall without issue. However, I could tell that something wasn't quite right. So, I tried to fire up MWB to run a scan and it wouldn't load. The infection initially disabled both MWB and MSE. After re-installing MWB the scan revealed 135 items - a couple trojans, a bunch of adwares, and several PUPs - and successfully removed them but required a restart. On restart MWB was again disabled. After re-installing MWB the scan revealed 15 items - a couple trojans and several adwares - successfully removed them and again required a restart. After this restart MWB was functioning (good sign) and the scan was clean. Whew!! Disaster averted (or so I thought). I quickly noticed that things still are not right. I tried to open Chrome and it wouldn't open. So, I re-installed it. When it opens the first website I visit when I click the login link a new tab opens to a timeshare website. I check extensions and nothing...so I figure I am still infected. I run another scan with MWB and it is clean. So, I open MSE and run a quick scan and it finds win32/Detrahere!reg - it spins circles trying to delete it for about 15min and then the computer restarts. I run the scan again and it finds the same infection...rinse and repeat 4 times and it still finds but is unable to remove win32/Detrahere!reg. Using another computer I search online and can't find anything about win32/Detrahere!reg. After speaking with a friend that is quite good with computers I decide to download HitMan Pro (HMP). I first run a scan with MWB and it is clean, then I run a scan with HMP and it finds 3 exe files that are infected with a virus, 1 trojan (not the same one) and a ton of cookies. HMP successfully deletes all and requires a restart. I re-scan with HMP and it is clean. I run a quick scan with MSE and it still finds the same trojan win32/Detrahere!reg. I open chrome and I get the same bad behaviors - I click on a menu item on one website and it opens a new tab and takes me to a facebook page for some business that I don't recognize. So, I am still infected with win32/Detrahere!reg and MWB and HMP both say that my system is clean but MSE says I have this trojan but can't remove it. Any suggestions on how to kill this one would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Pat
  19. Hello everyone. My computer seems to be infected by something that has turned out to be very difficult to eliminate. What happens is that a weird Japanese audio is played randomly, and when checking the audio mixer I see "Host Process for Windows Service". Of course, I can mute it there, but every time it starts to play again, I have to manually mute it, which is seriously getting on my nerves. I have scanned my computer with all the advanced options from Windows Defender, and with Malwarebytes several times, I've used the Adwcleaner tool, but none of this has been able to get rid of the problem. Upon reading the instructions in this community and attaching the log files created by the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool. I really hope somebody can help me. Thank you for your time Addition.txt FRST.txt
  20. Hello... I used to solve my problems myself , or at least, find existing answers but now I am so desperate so I do this post. And meanwhile I pray to God, I hope you will be able to help me. I will fully willing to cooperate and will respond quick. So here is the deal. Obviously enough, I downloaded virus with torrent. Right away it installed a lot of stupid programs and added a lot of links on desktop, this is how I got to know it first. Second thing I noticed is that my CPU is at 90%. In usual use I don't even exceed 20 while playing. So I started research and find out it was a process svchost.exe from c:windows/sysWOW64 folder. First thing I tried was Win Defender. - Failure. Didn't even detected anything. Second thing was Avast. - Failure. Even though it detected 2 viruses, while I removed them - nothing changed. Later I was searching for other fixes and detected another behavior of this virus - when I search for adwcleaner, my browser just closes. Basically it wont let me search it. when I found in a forum link to download your soft(malwarebytes) It wont let me press it, it crashes browser again. So I wanted to reset windows 10. I have no hard drive so I could only use it through option on startup. And again - Virus didn't let me do that, casting an error on me mid re-installation "there was a problem bla bla, no changes were made". So I started windows in safe mode, then I was able to search for your soft and could download it. I downloaded adwcleaner and ran it. it found like 16 malwares. I removed them and booted in. Checked CPU - still high, and still getting blocked on web, trying to search some staff. I then read some forums topics of yours and find out about mbar. I then found out that virus also blocking adwcleaner in normal boot from starting. BUT mbar worked. I started it and it found like 3 malwares. I removed them and rebooted. After that when pc started it instatly threw an error on me about svchost crashing. There is only one option to close program. IF I do not c lose it, my cpu is normal and everything seem fine, but if I close it, PC crashes and after "repair" it gets virus back again. Now, even if I start adwcleaner or mbar, both say that there is no treats, even tho everything is the same. Please, I am standing on my knees and begging you for help... Thank you in advance.
  21. Hi, I believe I was recently infected by a virus of some sort. Since a few days ago, my laptop (Microsoft Surface Pro 4) has been playing up: 1. A lot of the time, it will be running on 80-100% CPU and the laptop will be extremely hot and the fan will be very loud. When I check to see what it is that's using up the CPU it is mostly 'svchost.exe' in a folder called SysWOW64. 2. The laptop has become very slow as well and it will take a long time to open folders, etc. 3. Sometimes the laptop will crash and a blue screen will appear saying 'CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED' and it will restart 4. I have malwarebytes installed, and when I start up the computer a lot of the time a box will pop up in the bottom right corner saying that a website has been blocked even though I haven't even opened the internet yet. The domain is 'de-mi-nis-ner.info' which seems dodgy. Please help, I don't know what to do. I have scanned it many times with Windows defender and Malwarebytes and they have both said there are no viruses. Thanks in advance!
  22. Please help! I have an HP stream 11 and it suddenly had a message come up regarding malware?? I've tried everything I've read in forums for the last 24 and nothing had helped, it's just getting worse. I no longer I'm able to delete certain files because I don't have to permission. Malwarebytes keeps popping up with a message telling me that PUPs have blocked me from going to a site that I'm trying to go to to clean the virus. I have downloaded as many different malware removers as I can but my computer is becoming less and less usable. Please help!!! Also, every scanner/detector, comes back with a clean result as if nothing is wrong with it, but there's definitely something wrong!!!!
  23. Malwarebytes reported several times that the website ia.801509.us.archive.org. This website URL is associated with phishing and was reported by Malwarebytes as malware. When running scans, the threat does not appear. I would like help in ridding my computer of the infection. The last log from the blocked site is shown in the attachment below. Sometimes it is logged as "malware" and sometimes classified as "unspecified". Thank you for your assistance.
  24. Hi. I'm infected with riskware.heuristicsreservedwordexploit. MBAM detects it and I can delete it but when I restart my system, it comes back. Don't know how to permanentely delete it. Hope you can help me out. Thanks. MALWARE.txt
