  1. Hello, Two days ago my computer was infected by some malicious malware. I ran malwarebyte, ESET scan, and some other antimalware programs. I was able to remove most of the malware, but I noticed that my command prompt opens and closes quickly every so often. I suspect that it has something to do with windows command processor because this program only appears on the start up manager of norton security, and does not appear on task manager. Furthermore, when I try to turn off the start up option for windows command processor, it keeps re-enabling itself. What do I do?
  2. Hello, My pc apparently has been infected with annoying adware. When I start up my PC, a CMD window flashes, then chrome starts up with an ad page called www.dipladoks.org I ran Malwarebytes, Windows Defender, even in safe mode. I cleaned up my chrome settings, and checked my PC using chrome, yet nothing seems to work
  3. Friend came over to help me with an issue I was having with Office 2016. Recently had it and now it wasn't working. He told me about KMS and as I was looking it up seeing if it was safe, legal, etc... he installs it from the zip and I've never seen a virus/malware/ransomware act like this. All of a sudden programs start opening up: a radio program streaming podcasts or online radio, took control of Firefox, installed their own version of IE, and I noticed the mouse moving on it's own and that's when I just freaked and shut it down. Tried to start in advanced options, the safe mode, but now it's giving me an SrtTrail logfile missing error message. When it boots up AT ALL and tries to access windows, it shows the dell boot up logo, "prepairing automatic repair," two (what looks like) cmd windows flash for a millisecond, then "diagnosing your pic" "repairing files (sometimes) and then says "automatic repair couldn't repair your PC" Bc of c:\windows\system32\logfiles\srt\srttrail.txt AND a system reset to factory settings AND factory image restore don't seem to work because of "not enough space" I've tried to fix the logfile issue in cmd promt, I've tried to delete the KMS file in cmd prompt but couldn't find it I don't mind resetting, reverting or reformatting the computer (as long as I keep windows) as it's only a few months old.... is there a way to either rid the virus OR just "freeing up space" IF that's even true? Could the virus be filling up the hard drive for THAT main reason?
  4. I opened a link from a Google result and saw command prompt open and close twice. I could not see what was going on. I want to make sure my computer was not infected with Malware. I have downloaded Malwarebyte and run the scan. I also ran FRST per suggestion on other thread. I am including log files for Malwarebyte as well as FRST.txt and Addition.txt. Please review and let me know if my computer is infected. Thank you for your help. Addition.txt FRST.txt MalwarebyteScanResults.txt
  5. Hello! i've been experiencing an automatic transfer from command prompt, i don't know what this is and even my MalwareBytes doesn't detect anything, is there anyway to remove this? i'm pretty sure there is something fishy going on here.
  6. Hello there, Earlier today, I tried to download a survival addon fix for my Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Black Box. After I installed the program, my laptop started going ballistic: Unknown programs installed (UC Browser, etc) and my chrome startup page changed into yeadesktop.com (Not to mention that the app, Yeadesktop was also installed for a brief amount of time.). I tried running all of the security programs that I had and also uninstalling and deleting all of the unknown programs alongside the related files, but nothing happened. At this time, the command prompt started flashing. Not just one, but four. The cmd.exe that pops up is blank and pops up diagonally for approx. 1 second one by one. Also tried running Kaspersky's TDSS Killer, but it doesn't work, says my laptop's clean and I still have the flashes. I tried googling for answers, but gave up when I can't find a fix. I tried restarting the laptop for 3 times, if I'm not mistaken, but the flashing becomes worse. The cmd.exe that flashed doubled in number and flashed even more faster than before (The flashing pattern is restarted, so after the first 4 cmd.exe finished flashing in a diagonal pattern, the second 4 follows at the same spot where the first 4 flashed). When I'm writing this, I'm still having the cmd.exe flashing for every few seconds (20 seconds max with no flash). I tried to play some games, but they're interrupted by the flashing cmd.exe.
  7. For about the past week now I've been noticing a command prompt pop up for a split second and then disappear. This happens randomly. Sometimes only once or twice a day. Sometimes I see it every 15 - 20 minutes for a few hours and then I won't see it for awhile. Also, my cursor displays the loading icon, the blue spinning circle, a lot recently as well. This is a rather new installation of Windows 10 Home. It was installed on a freshly wiped hdd on June 7. I installed Malwarebytes Pro that same day. Malwarebytes hasn't detected any threats.
  8. I've noticed other people having issues with this, and since the help for each user is unique and personal, I suppose I'd make my own thread rather than risk damaging my computer by following someone else's. I've tried running malwarebytes and rkill with no threats detected, and I haven't been able to get a screenshot of the command prompt (although I would be more than happy to get that if it is necessary)
  9. So two days ago I was getting subtitles from Opensubtitles and stupidly didn't uncheck the file download from the main download button. I didn't install the file but it DID take me to a shoddy page for it's downloader program. I'd also had Adblock Plus disabled because WoWHead (an information site for World of Warcraft) has been acting up with Chrome/adblockers. So, my stupidity. I noticed -since then- I've had what appears to be a command prompt window popping up in my upper left of my screen, roughly every hour to every few minutes. It's too quick to see but I've Googled and found hundreds of threads describing my issue so I'm pretty sure it's a cmd prompt window, rather than anything else. I've checked Event Viewer and Task Scheduler as well as Task Manager and haven't found anything amiss. I would record my screen to try and figure it out but I don't have enough HDD space. I followed some things from this thread: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/187251-command-prompt-keeps-popping-up/ (naturally I ran Malwarebytes, Windows Defender - when this first happened) and I have an ADWCleaner log that shows what was removed, as well as a screenshot of what it found. MWB found nothing - I had the rootkit bit enabled - and once ADWCleaner found something I basically stopped following the above thread and started my own. I'm on Windows 10 Home (X64), can provide other info if need be. I'm pretty good with computers but this is my first virus issue in literally, 15 years, as well I was on MacOS for the last five years so I'm new to Windows 10 (had Windows 7 for years and XP prior to that) so everything in this OS looks different than what I remember XD Attached is the screenshot to what AWCleaner found as well as it's first log (EDIT: re-uploaded log, forgot to remove my username from it).

  10. Hello, Two days ago my computer was infected by some malicious malware. I ran malwarebyte, norton security, superantispyware, and some other antimalware programs. I was able to remove most of the malware, but I noticed that my command prompt opens and closes quickly once every hour. I suspect that it has something to do with windows command processor because this program only appears on the start up manager of norton security, and does not appear on task manager. Furthermore, when I try to turn off the start up option for windows command processor, it keeps re-enabling itself. What do I do?
  11. Hello, I know that many people are having problems after downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit on Windows 10 computers. You will try to run the program and it will give you an error message. If you're savvy enough to go into task manager, the process will be there but nothing will happen. This error could be due to a corrupt file when downloading the program, it could be due to an antivirus conflict, or it may have been due to encrypting the hard drive with bitlocker or truecrypt. Here is how to fix this: Go to your command prompt. (windows key, type 'cmd' , ctrl +shift +enter) - or Right click on 'command prompt' and select 'run as administrator' Type in 'cd' and then the location of the malware bytes file (it's usually under program files). For example: cd c:\program files (86x)\malwarebytes anti-exploit\ Type 'mbae-svc -install' after the extension. For example: c:\program files (86x)\malwarebytes anti-exploit\mbae-svc -install\ This should start working immediately. I was frustrated that a program I paid for was not working so I took a few minutes to play around with it. You're Welcome. -Lando.
  12. Hello, I read an old post that they were working on command line options for MBAM 2.0. I'd like to run a batch to update it and have it run silently in the background unless a reboot is required.
  13. Just recently, when I boot my computer the very first thing I see is command prompt open and then Google chrome opens to bizigames.org. I'm scared and I don't know what happened. Just before this started happening I was trying to open the desktop folder file on the toolbar and every time it opened, it was blank and closed. I kept trying to open the file and nothing. Next I ctrl+alt+deleted and the whole computer went to black. I restarted it. And this starts happening. Please help, I'm not sure what to do!!
  14. Just today I was with my brother when he turned on his computer to find that his profile was gone and replaced with a windows profile for "Johnny". We assumed that this is the person that last owned the computer, but we have had no luck trying to contact that person again. Since I felt impatient, I have tried going around the pass word by pressing the F8 key to get to safe mode with command prompts but found that I was lead back to the Window's profile list showing just Johnny. I have tried every safe mode option but the computer refuses to boot in safe mode. Additionally, I have tried the "repair your computer" option and I am given a list of two profiles that I could choose to enter a password for (neither of them that I know). There seems to be no way of getting around this. I have followed the steps from this thread but as I just said I was unable to progress past "repair your computer" due to the password. I have a good USB clear and ready if it needs to be used.
  15. Okay, have a HP with windows 8 64 bit, my computer is only about 4 months old. I could not get windows defender to turn on. I went without it for a bit but had Norton firewall with other spyware. So last week I used windows refresh (it's the one where it keeps your files but gets rid of everything else) and it has been working so slow since. I turn it on ans disk is running at 100% for the first 10 minutes and then it goes down but it still runs slow. I still cant get defender to turn on. It just wont let me when I click it to turn it on? So I called Microsoft and they pulled up my command prompt and told me my system is corrupted (I call BS on time) they turned the command prompt text red, I have seen that by scammers. does red text mean anything in command prompt? So I really have no idea what to do? Should I run the windows refresh again? I am lost and am fearing that this computer is now going to break and I don't have the money to go get a new one only after 5 months. Please help.
