  1. 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
  2. Hi Question about the "protected application list", why is "explorer.exe" not there and would it be safe to add it? Thanks
  3. What is OSDSoft?The Malwarebytes research team has determined that OSDSoft is a crypto currency miner. These miners are designed to earn cryptocurrency by using system resources.This particular one is a so-called XMRig (Monero) miner.How do I know if my computer is affected by OSDSoft?You may see a file called explorer.exe with this icon:How did OSDSoft get on my computer?Miners use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was installed by a bundler.How do I remove OSDSoft?Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this miner. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected. Restart your computer when prompted to do so. Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of OSDSoft? After the reboot you can remove the OSDSoft entry from your list of installed Programs and Features if it belonged to the Trojan. How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me?We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this trojan.As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the OSDSoft trojan. It would have warned you before the trojan could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late. and we block the domain that hosts the coin-miner(s): Technical details for expertsPossible signs in FRST logs: (www.xmrig.com) C:\Users\{username}\Desktop\explorer.exe C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Temp\explorer.exe Malwarebytes log: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Scan Date: 10/24/18 Scan Time: 9:10 AM Log File: eec5bf1f-d75b-11e8-a940-00ffdcc6fdfc.json -Software Information- Version: 3.6.1.2711 Components Version: 1.0.463 Update Package Version: 1.0.7497 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: {computername}\{username} -Scan Summary- Scan Type: Threat Scan Scan Initiated By: Manual Result: Completed Objects Scanned: 238151 Threats Detected: 2 Threats Quarantined: 2 Time Elapsed: 2 min, 37 sec -Scan Options- Memory: Enabled Startup: Enabled Filesystem: Enabled Archives: Enabled Rootkits: Enabled Heuristics: Enabled PUP: Detect PUM: Detect -Scan Details- Process: 0 (No malicious items detected) Module: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Key: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Value: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Data: 0 (No malicious items detected) Data Stream: 0 (No malicious items detected) Folder: 0 (No malicious items detected) File: 2 RiskWare.HeuristicsReservedWordExploit, C:\USERS\{username}\APPDATA\LOCAL\TEMP\EXPLORER.EXE, Quarantined, [5758], [293543],1.0.7497 Trojan.BitCoinMiner, C:\USERS\{username}\DESKTOP\EXPLORER.EXE, Quarantined, [553], [583341],1.0.7497 Physical Sector: 0 (No malicious items detected) WMI: 0 (No malicious items detected) (end) As mentioned before the full version of Malwarebytes could have protected your computer against this threat.We use different ways of protecting your computer(s): Dynamically Blocks Malware Sites & Servers Malware Execution Prevention Save yourself the hassle and get protected.
  4. explorer.exe found in AppData/Local/Temp explorer.zip mbam_report_2018-02-08.txt
  5. Hi! I recently got a virus that shows about 50 explorer.exe files on my processes section. I had Avira and scanned my computer with it, but no luck. Then I got Malwarebytes, and it detected 6 unwanted programs. I logged on to my profile, but the virus was still there! I then got Kaspersky, and it didn't detect anything. I was wondering if any of you could help me? PLZ!!
