  1. Hi, I am rather terrified. I was an idiot and installed malware on my computer. It is called scop.exe, and it will not let me close it down or delete it. Since it has shown up, I've been noticing clicking sounds every second. As if it is doing background stuff. in just fifteen minutes while I was scanning, it has imported 92 viruses. Various riskware, Trojans, and adware. Upon restarting to quorentine my computer no longer starts up properly. I have repaired startup through the repair disk and that worked, but only temporarily. If I restart, the same thing occurs again. No hardware is damaged. It doesn't show up as a virus by makwarebytes. And malwarebytes is the best, so I resorted to this. Attached are the processes. One is under wininit.exe the other is scop.exe, which relaunches every time I open a browser. firefox and chrome have been renamed to chrome334.exe and firefox334.exe these are running in safe mode and are just as bad i know I am not including a lot of data so please give me a list of what you need to know.
  2. Threat scan reporting hijack.host on /etc/hosts. Malware or false positive? Log and file attached. Thanks. hosts.zip scan_jan212016.txt
  3. Hello, I'm facing serious problems after being infected with malwares like music.exe, userinit.exe, system.exe, forever.exe, hijack.host etc. It's dreadful. It's everywhere, in my pen drives, camera, phones, memory cards(it doesn't allow me to view usb mass storage contents). Hampering processes and creating chaos! I posted a topic a few months ago regarding the same issue but didn't respond to it as I started preparing up for exams. You can find the topic HERE >> https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/164858-wormautorun-causing-windows-to-run-into-an-infinite-shutdown-loop-help/?view=getnewpost AdvancedSetup told me to post a new thread. --FIRST PROBLEM-- Step by step.. I followed the steps posted there, built the UBCD4Win, but couldn't backup my data as I don't have a big pen drive or an external hdd. >> So I just formatted the C drive and reinstalled Windows yesterday. >> Then installed MBAM, again. > UPDATED DB, > scanned > traced 10 malwares. > did NOT delete them, for the fear of being not able to boot again as the infected files included system files (but I think they were still quarantined) > did some work. >> ran Farbar Recovery Tool. >> thought of visiting the malwarebytes forums, and an error popped up, saying I'm not allowed to visit this community. Okay. Nice. > ^^this has happened to me many times on and off on many systems and devices. > played some games. >> switched off the pc. > restarted it. > was welcomed with a logon screen WITHOUT any password field. > I clicked the username. > my wallpaper appeared but no GUI, just plain wallpaper. > after a few seconds it returned back to the logon screen and said the user(admin) does not exist! > end. --SECOND PROBLEM-- > Rant incoming... >> Why am I intermittently abandoned/prevented/denied access to these forums, from every kind of device where I log into Gmail even once? Have I broken some rules or i'm blacklisted? Huh? It's depressing to see that i've been blocked from accessing the site when I need it most, and more when I realize that nowhere else I'll get better solutions, easily. I don't come here everyday, and when I do i'm welcomed by an "error number 2000". Gooood... > Rant mode over. --THIRD PROBLEM(SUGGESTION)-- > I'm not sure if this is the correct place to talk about MBAM. But anyways here I go. >> Why does MBAM quarantine/disables system files even when they're infected?, Knowing that this step will render the pc useless afterwords? They're critical files! >> And why does it even offer an option to delete them after scan? > Seriously, people will delete them happily and end up with a half-dead computer. >> Why not just flag the file/location for reviewing later, or suggesting the user to go for support, or warning them about the effects of deleting them, instead of letting them delete in a single click. Thats it! I'm eagerly waiting for a reply. And please don't ban me again as I won't be able to post replies here and the topic will be closed. Thank you for reading and sorry for the rant. mbam%20scan%20results.txt mbam%20log%20may%2020.txt FRST.txt Addition.txt
