  1. I'm a Lifetime license holder of Malwarebytes, and have used and loved your software for long over a decade at this point. Usually, MBAM finds anything and everything that somehow ends up on my system that shouldn't be. But since around 3 weeks ago, I've somehow become infected with a crypto-currency mining virus (as far as I can tell from researching the issue) that I cannot seem to remove. This virus is using almost all of my system resources including RAM, CPU, and Disk up to 100% at times, and as far as I can tell the causes seem to be related to vbc.exe and svchost.exe. I've tried using RKill, TDSSKiller, ADWGuard, CCleaner, MacAfee Stinger, and Process Killer in different orders over the past almost month, with Process Killer really being the only programs that's helped do anything to combat this at all (even though it's not able to fully get rid of the problem itself). I've tried manually deleting specific files as well, and the issue still persists. MacAfee Stinger, TDSSKiller, and MBAM are all coming up clean when scanning with them. Is there anything else that might be able to be done about this? I'm hoping to avoid a full wipe-Windows 10 Enterprise (which is what I'm using OS-wise) if at all possible; I recently lost two 4tb hdds from failure, and really don't have what I need to back up the data I still have saved hardware-wise at the moment. Any help would be greatly appreciated; thank you!!!
  2. Hello! First time I posted, so hopefully it is in the right forum. Currently on Malwarebytes Premium Version Update package version 1.0.18998 Component package version 1.0.804 I keep getting back to back pop-ups from Malwarebytes. Is this a False Positive? If so, why does it not like my OneDrive all of a sudden? The po-ups are: Thank you!
  3. Hi. A few minutes ago I got a notification that malwarebytes had blocked svchost.exe trying to access a foreign website. My guess is that's not supposed to happen. This is the first time I have gotten that notification. I have tried a threat scan but it is not detecting svchost.exe as malware of a trojan or anything the like. I have included the .txt of the report. Thanks in advance malwareb.txt
  4. Hi all, I keep getting these popups that Malwarebytes have blocked a website - even when I don't have a browser running. I'm worried that I've got a virus or something, even though both Malwarebytes Premium and AdvCleaner is coming up clean. I have attached FRST and Addition logs, as well as the scan reports from premium and advcleaner, and a copy of the blocked website report. Thanks!
  5. Hello Everyone. I'm hacked with multiple hacking ways. A Malware infected to my Laptop with both svchost.exe and explorer.exe infection. I have deleted this for tenth times but its still downloading or creating itself. It was a hack tool for Point Blank (Its a online fps game). I downloaded it from www.sepok-cit.com . This site has too many good reviews and i believed them. Already I Tried a few ways to delte this sh*t from my computer but none of them worked. I TRIED: 1) Deleting its files (hidden files named as spoolsvc.exe , svchost.exe and explorer.exe) 2) Deleting it via regedit (from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE's windows and windows NT folders) 3) Killing it with RogueKiller 4) Deleting this with MalwareBytes 5) Deleting it with Kaspersky 6) Deleting it with Avast But none of them worked. I Tried also disabling Windows Update from services.msc . Its deleted in each steps i wrote but its reinstalling (or recreating idk what it does) itself everytime i reboot my laptop and SHOWING IN TASK MANAGER WHEN I LAUNCH POINT BLANK (game that i want to hack). POINT BLANK LAUNCHER is TRIGGER of it. Its origin location is Windows/Resources and Windows/Resources/Windows. PLEASE HELP ME. IM LOSING MY MIND!!!
  6. Hello, I suspect that I have a bitcoin mining virus infecting my computer. Symptoms are as follows: 100% CPU until I open Task Manager, where it then disappears. Upon closing and reopening Task Manager, it does the same thing. High CPU usage is shown to come from System Interrupts. In Task Manager > Details, svchost.exe has 4 [four] entries under my username (I have read that typically they should only be under Network Service, Local Service, and System). In Task Manager > Details, I have 8 [eight] RuntimeBroker.exe (not sure if this is apart of the issue but felt it was worth noting). Attempts to rectify: 1. Did multiple full and offline scans with Windows Defender (Windows 10). No detection. 2. In Run > msconfig > Services, I disabled things with Unknown manufacturers. 3. In Task Manager > Startup, I disabled unnecessary applications from turning on. 4. Deleted apps I felt could have intruded (somehow I had Chromium on my laptop without downloading it). 5. Accessed CMD and did 3 [three] sfc /scannow. No integrity violations detected. 6. Backed up some important files and ran Windows Fresh Start (Windows Security > Device performance & health). 7. Performed another offline scan with Windows Defender for good measure. No detection. Still have the symptoms listed above. I am tempted to just reset the PC, but since I haven't succeeded thus far (0 to 7, virus winning) I am searching for some more professional assistance with solving the issue. I would greatly appreciate any kind of assistance with resolving this.
  7. A few days ago I restarted my computer before a long time without re-starting it (like 1 week with the pc on) and I noticed that "Explorer.exe" was requesting to initialize, but the real explorer.exe task was already running... I said no but then I checked the directory of the file and the system said that the file was on %windir%/resources/themes, well going into folder to check if the file exists I noticed that theres nothing more than aero themes in this folder. So did a scan in the folder using malwarebytes and it recognized svchost.exe malware and explorer.exe, before adding they do quarentine I wanted to check why the files didnt apeared, so I enabled "show hidden folders" in explorer (the real one, from microsoft) and it changed nothing, well, so I tried to open the archive by going with %windir%/resources/themes/explorer.exe in the explorer path, it worked, but I still uncapable of seeing this file... So I started CMD as admin and did " cd " to %windir%/resources/themes and did " dir " inside the folder, as I expected the dir shows the same as explorer, but appeared 2 new items that the was named as " . " and " .. " I deleted both sucessfully. Searching for this in internet I found that there's an other way to hide files in windows, that was adding them to" important system files or protected system files" list, and following the instructions to disable this privilege, I finally could see the archives, well, I added them to the quarentine list and continued using my computer since yesterday that I realized that everytime malwarebytes send two addwares to quarentine (I left the results of scan in the post as "Annoying addware.txt") they come back right after I finish the task... When trying to solve these issues I realized many things... 1- I cant use commands as DISM, sfc /scannow, windows update, windows defender( I will let write happens when i try to use them bellow this part) , net start/stop wuauserv (the wuauserv service doesnt even exists in registry, I didnt checked windows defender one...) 2- there was a folder called QEMU hidden with the "important system files" method, I deleted all content Inside and then deleted the folder after taking out the folder privilegies 3- Theres two "program" files in "Inicialize" section of task manager wich I cant go to proprieties ( I dropped the print down on anexed files named as "Program" unknow files) When I try to use with /checkhealth everything go fine, but when I try to use dism with /restorehealth it stops at 87,5% and gives an error 1060 messages saying " the specified service does not exist as an installed service " ( I left the DISM log file right bellow named as DISM.txt ) When I try to use sfc /scannow it says that cannot fix all issues When i try to use windows update it says that my organizations disable windows updates ( ? ) When I try windows defender it just goes black screen on the window Well, it would be great if someone could help me, I dont really want to re-install windows... I would take a month to setup my pc again Also, I run Windows 10 Pro 64bits, version 1809... dism.log Annoying Adware.txt Rkill.txt FRST.txt Addition.txt
  8. I recently had gotten a lot of malware onto my PC. I cleared most of it using Malwarebytes, Hitman and other antivirus software. I however, still have some issues. svchost.exe now consumes more than 50% of my CPU usage and I get these notifications from Malwarebytes that I have attached to this post. I have heard that information from my PC could be getting leaked/stolen. Help would be much appreciated! Thank you.
  9. 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
  10. Receiving a constant stream of popups from Malwarebytes about a riskware website being blocked. There is no domain given, and it continues even if I am not accessing my browser. It is referencing System32\svchost.exe. This file also exists in SysWOW64 once and WinSxS twice. The IP address is A malwarebytes scan does not find anything, and I've run adwcleaner. I've uploaded an export of one of the event logs, and I can upload whatever other log data is needed. Would like help in identifying if this is a stream of false positives, or if some other malicious file is causing the popups. Thank you. report_log.txt
  11. I found my problem quite similar to another question on the forum. A blank process in task manager made my computer in high CPU usage (up to 100%). I have used Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner, but neither of them were successful. Addition.txt FRST.txt Malwarebytes.txt
  12. Hello, I'm new to the forum, but already had Malwarebytes Premium (and thank God for that!). Here's my sad story. My Windows 7 Professional 64-bit computer had been connected to a LinkSys AC1200+ wireless router, which was connected to a 3com OfficeConnect hub/switch, which was connected via the uplink to a gateway provided by TimeWarner/Spectrum Business Class. But the other night, the hub/switch failed, and I couldn't get on the Internet. For a while, I connected the computer directly to the gateway, via one of its four ports on the back. (I reconfigured the computer's IP and DNS to a fixed IP address.) It probably was this way for less than a day. I suddenly noticed, though, some strange things: (*) McAfee LiveSafe (which I had in addition to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium, because it came with the computer) was trying to register new. It appears that something took it out. (*) I started getting messages, seemingly one every 5 to 10 minutes, from the real-time protection from Malwarebytes that it was blocking various attacks. I then realized that being connected directly to a port on the "Wild Internet" was really dangerous. So I pulled the plug. At this point, my Wifi finally came alive (honestly, I had never figured out how to force it to do that when connected via Ethernet, but the cable being plugged in seems to have prevented that---I never thought of that!). I'm now connected through the LinkSys AC 1200+ wireless router. The Wireless connection is configured for DHCP, so I should be safe from picking up any new infections?? (At least, that's the way it was before. The LinkSys wireless router is sitting on the Wild Internet, but it is password protected with a good strong password---NOT admin!) I have been alarmed at some of the threats that have been blocked, as they are outbound attempts to connect to a site in Russia at a single IP address, attempting the connection through many different obscure port numbers. The site's two variations are either wmi(dot)my0115(dot)ru or down(dot)my0115(dot)ru and the IP address is 78(dot)142(dot)29(dot)114. There seem to be three executablea that were blocked from connecting, one classified as RiskWare, and the others as Unspecified. The RiskWare is coming from C:\Windows\System32\lsass.exe. The Unspecified are the following: C:\Windows\System32\wbem\scrcons.exe and C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe. The odd thing is that my Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium scan comes up clean, even though I'm still getting messages every so often that another attempt has been blocked! Does this indicate that something is masquerading as a system (whitelisted) program?? (If this is the case, then would running a threat scan in safe mode pick it up?) Here are some miscellaneous things that may be additional infections or part of the same: (*) There were two files that were caught and quarantined: 1) First was "Backdoor Zegost" at C:\adg.exe; 2) Second was "RansomWannaCrypt" at C:\Windows\mssecsvc.exe" Microsoft Security Center says that this file should not be allowed to run, associated with ransomware I think. (*) While backing up some files to DVD-ROM, I noted an odd file in the Documents directory. It is called adxloader.log, and when I opened it with Notepad, it looks as though it was loading things into the Registry maybe. Since I noticed it, it had been modified to a later date, but maybe this happened as a result of opening the file with Notepad. Maybe it's something legit, but I don't recall ever seeing it before. And the stuff inside it looks pretty malicious if it isn't something legit. (*) There is one other thing---maybe it's normal, or maybe not. When I went to try to retrieve the log file from Malwarebytes Threat scan the Documents and Settings folder shows with a padlock icon over it, and says "Access Denied" when I click on it, EVEN WHEN RUNNING WINDOWS EXPLORER AS ADMIN. Is this normal? Maybe this is for safety?? I was able to view the required logs and save them elsewhere, so not critical, but thought I'd ask. I will attach the following files to this post: 1) The MalwareBytes Threat Scan Log (which found nothing), which I called MalwareBytesThreatScanLog.txt; 2) The FRST scan log, FRST.txt; 3) the Addition.txt log; 3) Samples of the MalwareBytes blocked threat reports from the Russian site: They are called MalwarebytesBlocked_1.txt, MalwarebytesBlocked_2, MalwarebytesBlocked_3, MalwarebytesBlocked_4 and MalwarebytesBlocked_5; 4) the adxloader.log file, re-saved as a text file. I think that's all. Let me know if you need something else. My Windows updates are really out of date, sad to say. The updates got stuck at some point, and HP "Smart Friend" deleted a bunch of stuff, including Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium, and really screwed everything up. They wiped out all of the pending updates. But I've been very ill and haven't had the energy to deal with it. I do have a backup I made when I got Acronis Backup, when the system was fairly new. And of course there faling back to a configuration from a few days ago before the hub started failing is an option. I keep all of my important files on a portable drive, though. I won't do anything at all, such as put in the replacement hub I just got through the mail today, until given the okay. I especially won't restore my direct wired connection yet, as this would require reconfiguring my LAN connection, and I don't want to make anything worse. Thanks for your help.

  13. Sometimes your program shows me the notification a connection is was blocked by it. The program spams the notification. If It starts, It would not stop for a period of some minutes. I have tried to look at your log files and detect the process what does this. Unfortunately, the program doesn't report process's Id, only the Process's file, which is, in my case, svchost.exe Please help me remove this spyware (I pretty sure it is a spyware). Thanks in Advance, Mizaro
  14. I had this issue 2 or 3 weeks ago. Malwarebytes constantly popups blocking a few different (what appears to be) adware issues, such as drivethelife and onclickads. There's a 3rd one that shows up sometimes but much more rarely. My Avast antivirus couldn't find any issues, and running a scan on my lifetime license MWB gives a message that there are no threats found. I have a temporary license on HitManPro and it seems to find tracking cookies but nothing to do with adware (from what I can tell). I uninstalled Malwarebytes and reinstalled it but lost my license key for about 10 days. During this time, I had no popups about these infections. I restored the key yesterday and started getting these constant annoying popups. I verified my installed programs and see nothing that seems related. All installed programs are normal Microsoft and other regular updates to my apps. I see nothing that seems related in my running processes, either. So how do I get rid of these popups? If there really is an infection (despite Malwarebytes telling me there isn't one), how do I get rid of it? Please help ASAP. I can't focus on my work with these popups annoying me constantly.
  15. Hi, I recently downloaded some harmful software and after using Malwarebytes I removed the majority of it. I have already performed multiple Threat scans using Malware bytes, the first of them removing a large number of malware and other PUPs. However, on startup I get the CMD prompt popping up saying that it's trying to download something similar to the image below. Every 3 hours I got the CMD popping up again. Along with this, Malwarebytes consistently blocks (thankfully) an outward connection(using svchost.exe) as shown in the outward report log. I have attached the necessary text files. I desperately need your help as I have tried almost everything and this is taking a toll on my mental health. Thank you in advance, I have seen that you help other people with very similar/ almost identical issues even today. Malwarebytes Scan.txt Outer Block.txt

  18. I have been getting svchost.exe being blocked by MB for about a week or so, was on vacation so did not have time to deal with until now. Attached are the files from the scans as per the instructions. Please advise... FRST.txt Addition.txt MB Scan.txt
  19. I think MBAM just got me a false positive result.After a threat scan it found that the registry \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run|Windows Update with data on C:\Users\wcwra\AppData\Local\Microsoft Windows|svchost.exe is a backdoor.bot,I went to the folder and it was empty,just a svchost.exe.config. backdoor.txt
  20. i'm pretty sure theres malware involved that my multiple anti virus scans havent picked up that is causing this, but i have run hitmanpro avast and malwarebytes scans numerous times, all have come up clear as i have deleted the ones that have appeared, Yet with malwarebytes i get a notification about once every 2 minutes about it blocking an outbound thing from sysWOW64/svchost.exe, then i check my logs it occurs about 2 times a minute. now i've seen other cases of thise and it has come to my attention to make my own separate post, as its individually based apparently, here are the txt files. side note: i also have this chrome issue where new tab defaults to default-search.net i have tried all the recommended procedures to remove it but it won't change anything thanks!

  22. Hello! I have been experiencing an issue starting today: Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is blocking svchost.exe access to an apparently infected web resource. I am only getting this notification twice after Windows startup. I scanned my computer for malware using Malwarebytes, Bitdefender, Kaspersky TDSSKiller and Microsoft Anti-Malware package. I got the same result from all those scans: no infected files. I attached the logs and a screenshot of the notification. Malwarebytes.txt TDSSKiller.
  23. Hi Everyone, Today, I just download Telerik Fiddler Web Debugger. To my surprise, I notice the process SVChost.exe seems to repeatedly request to connect to redirector gtv1.com or some sort. To my knowledge, I have scan the computer with Malwarebytes, the free version, together with Bitdefender. Both of them gave me clean results. Granted, those scans were 2 weeks ago, but in the two weeks I haven't even powered up the PC. So if it was a virus, I am sure I did not contract it in that time frame. Did the virus pass through both detection? Should I be worried? Thank you all.
  24. I got this notification last night. I ran Malwarebytes Premium and it didn't find anything, I also did a full scan with AV. I still have the feeling something is wrong.
