I recently detected a malware by the name of crytominer( it was detected and assigned the usual generic name by malwarebytes) and quarantined and deleted it. I just wanna make sure that any traces of it are not there anymore. I recently ran (post detection of malware) malwarebytes and adwcleaner and did not get any detection
When my computer is idle, or doing something like watching youtube videos, my fans will start going and my computer will get hot. When I check task manager, it says that the CPU is running at 100%, sometimes there is no one task that is doing that but other times it is System Interrupts. The CPU usage then quickly return back to under 10% I've read that this is characteristic of mining malware, I've attempted other solutions involving windows updates, clean booting, eset cleaning, malwarebytes scans, and others. (I've quarantined or deleted everything that came up in the malwarebytes
After building my own gaming rig in January, everything has been running smoothly, however I've been running torrents and as a result I tried to check my vulnerability. I noticed when I open task manager, CPU usage starts at 100% and lowers to ~10% on idle. I already ran and found some malware through Malwarebytes and Roguekiller, as well as Windows Defender If anyone's willing to shed some light that'd be wonderful. I don't recognize any impact in games at all, so I could be wrong. ___________________________ Specs: Intel i5-9600k (Base clock) EVGA RTX 2060 XC ULTRA
Hey, I have run a performance diagnostic report on my PC after noticing issues with performance. Receiving the following warning. This seems to be widely linked to trojans/cryptominers. I have followed all the instructions on this page https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-taskhostw.exe-and-windows-update-checker-miner#rt_options but no luck. No anti malware software seems to be picking this up. not showing in task manager or on process explorer. Could you please help to get this removed from my system. Scan logs attached. Thank you! Ben M
