  1. Hey, yesterday I scanned my laptop with Malwarebytes and got some issues about Bitcoin miner files in my Files. So it asked me to restart my laptop to remove those files, so I pressed it immediately. While restarting it got stuck on restarting screen and froze for more than 20 minutes, so I made a hard restart. Now I am not sure if my laptop is clean and secured.

  2. I just built my new PC a few days ago and i went out of my way to buy all new components except my GPU which is second-hand. I scanned my system with malwarebytes and got a lot of adware and two Trojan bitcoin miners that are located in my registry. My problem is that after every scan i get the same malware so it seems that quarantine doesn't help. I tried locating them manually with RegEdit but i cant find anything. I watched a lot of videos on my issue and all of them suggest using Task manager and MSconfig (for startups) but there is nothing out of the ordinary. If anybod
  3. Hello, My Computer has Norton installed and I have a Miner.Bitcoinminer Malware somewhere? My Norton just brings a Popup that its beeing blocked but cant find any History or Source of the problem. I Attached my FRST Files please Help me. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  4. 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
  5. I use Synmantec antivirus and like after every 10 mins it shows Miner.Bitcoinminer 7 activity detected, and normal scans can't seem to be able to get rid of it, please someone guide me on how to remove this malware.
  6. So I've been having this problem for the last few days, my PC was pretty slow so I ran malwarebytes and it found a lot of stuff, then got rid of it but they came back with every reboot so I started looking into solutions online, I guess I've managed to get rid of a few of them by running a lot of different cleaning tools but "conhost.exe" always comes back after reboot. There was also some exes called lsmose and mysa1 mysa2 and mysa3 which I found out online that are bitcoin miners. I can stop the conhost manually by stopping some processes but it comes back after every reboot so I would reall
  7. Through another program, someone installed a suprnova.cc miner. How do I remove it? Does MalwareBytes detect it?
  8. Hello, I am very new to the malwarebytesforums and it is admittedly a little bit late to be searching for help, but this infection has avoided everything in my power. About four days ago, I acquired a new steam game, but it kept crashing to desktop upon launch. Although the fix was simple (Update graphics drivers), I saw a "Mod" by someone online that'd fix the issue. After downloading and running the file, it gave me an error, so I closed and deleted it, and didn't give it much thought. Little did I know I started going down a slippery slope. About an hour later exactly, norton starts gi
  9. Greetings, Malwarebytes forums. For the past few weeks, my laptop has been running very slowly, with high temperature (the CPU even reaches 100C on some occasions, with the core voltage exceeding 20V per core). The fan would ran at max speed even when the whole system is in idle mode (I do open a few programs related to my work, but all of them are network-related stuffs and in idle mode). Curious, I checked the Task Manager and see one of my workplace apps consuming exactly 25% of CPU. Occasionally it would dip or raise above that level but it would revert back to utilizing 25% of the CP
  10. Hello, some days ago I noticed some performance issues on my PC. Somehow I got a miner using my GPU in the background. Eventually I bought Malware Bytes Premium to get rid of it permanently. Unfortunately after every restart I get a threat detection even though I deleted them after sending them to quarantine. After trying it alone for some evenings I'm seeking some help here. Please let me know if I need to provide further information. Best regards! mb_log.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt
  11. Hello, My name is Andrea and I am writing here because i have notice a problem with my PC since a bit and only now I have realized it could be infected by a miner or similar. I have noticed, thanks to Adterburner tray icons, that my Laptop uses 99% of the GPU when idle with consequent heating. The weird thing is that the usage instantly drops as I open task manager or process explorer. As soon as I close them back, the usage rise again to 99%. I did some rearch online and it occured it could be a trojan or a miner. However, I did not find a solution to the problem. I hav
  12. FWIW if it helps someone. Sorry I can't find the string(s) I was in originally. Had a problem with the coinhive mess, but I didn't know it. Machine slowed to a crawl and task manager showed chrome using more than 80% of CPU. Used adw, FRST, eset, malwarebytes, CC, researched for eons. Tried everything written on this subject here and everywhere else. Nothing. Only a problem in chrome. So bit the bullet and removed all addons, etc from chrome... went away. Started adding things back. Turned out, AdRemover FOR chrome was the culprit. Would never have known the miner was there if
  13. Hi, I managed to download a bitcoin miner while downloading mods for GTAV, and no matter how many times I scan using malwarebytes it won't go. After the system restart it persists and slows my PC down so much that it struggles with even CS:GO. I can't download FRST or RogueKiller because as soon as I type it in any browser, the browser closes as if the malware is closing it before I can use either tool to kill it. Please end my suffering lol
  14. Hello, I scanned my computer with the free version of malwarebytes and the scan came up with a few infections. I deleted these files and the registry entry in both regular and safe modes but it seems that they are being created each time the system is booted up. Attached is a screenshot of the scan results and the infected files. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Any help on how to get rid of these? Thanks!
  15. For quite some time I had CPU usage issues that appeared to be coming from the WMI service. I figured out a workaround which was to shut down the service called "WMI" but this wasn't ideal as it would need to happen on each reboot. I have also discovered a service called NVU which claims to be NVIDIA driver updater but I suspect it is also fake. Today I figured out that WMI was a Bitcoin Miner virus and I was able to find the associated files. I could have removed them manually but I got Malwarebytes to scan and remove them for me. On reboot now, my CPU is back to norm
  16. Hello, My laptop has been using it's fan quite vigorously when it's idle but I didn't take it seriously. Today I realized it is really bugging me out. When no input is given to the pc it began to spin its fans really fast. But when I move the mouse it almost suddenly stops. Then I ran Tas Manager on the screen and I waited. When the fans began to spin again I realized a process is using almost 60% of my CPU. Name of the process is "mint.exe". No luck finding any information though. Ran a malwarebytes scan and it found 1 software. "Guard.lnk" which lead me to "Guard.exe" in "C:\Users\user\
  17. Hello, my friends!! I need your help and specialist consultation. During the computer scan for viruses, I found miners (the report attached for review). I need your advice, can I safely delete these files? my_report.txt
  18. after doing some research i ended up on this conclusion: some companies using CoinHive to mine in your browser without your knowledge, how i knew it ? https://github.com/AliasIO/Wappalyzer/issues/1807 i have an addon called WAPPALYZER it shows what tech your site is made, i noticed something is confusing all websites have CoinHive plugin, EVEN GOOGLE i was WHAT! no way its a bug i went there to GITHUB i opened an issue someone told me maybe iam infected somehow with it, i was hmm that seems logic on my computer i have those antiviruses:(both are paid licenses)
  19. I can't exactly say how I got infected. Now there are two folders in AppData/Roaming: LtdNotify24 and Qi8lf. Dr. Web marks files in these two folders constantly. Deleting them through LockHunter gives nothing. It is downloading itself again (while turning internet connections off it Dr.Web stays quiet). There are two processes loading CPU: svchost on the start (initializes connection?) and then aes.avx2 (miner program). I will provide any info needed.
  20. Hi, I've found a Bitcoin miner trojan in my PC, as the title says. It is located in svchost.exe and it opens a process that uses 50% of my CPU and 90-100% of my GPU. Even if I kill the process, the GPU keeps getting hot and being used at 100%. I've tried to remove the malware with MBAR, but it crashes when scanning registers and directories, so it isn't able to start the cleanup process. I've also tried using MBAM, but after it eliminates it and I reboot my PC, the malware is still there. I don't know what to do, please help me. I have attached to this post both the results of the Farbar scan.
  21. Hello, I've recently found through malwarebytes that I have two bitcoin miners, called SVChost. Malwarebytes cleaned everything else up, but couldn't remove these two. I found a thread where the issue had been resolved for someone else here: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/125534-cant-remove-bitcoin-miner-and-svchostexe-virus/ Unfortunately, the part where MrCharlie tells him what to delete with Roguekiller, I can't quite make out what he means. I'm running windows 7 x64. Please help! Thanks! PS: I've attached my RogueKiller report! RKreport_SCN_07052015_2216
  22. Hey there, some updates made to ESEA CSGO Anti-cheat making it always running on your computer, it can read + analyse data and memory on your pc and send it to ESEA servers. ESEA is ''trusted'' and the worlds best anti-cheating system for PC. But my question is this, in 2013 a ''rogue employe'' injected malware into the anticheat that made it mine bitcoins and destroy a lot of ppls computers and this was when they made it running fulltime and they then changed it to only running when playing CSGO ESEA. They did get sued for a million dollars tho and had to pay that Now they are gonna

  24. I have had the following problem recurring over and over again, but cannot find any way to sort this out. The computer boots clean and works fine. When I launch Facebook/candycrush/youtube, the GPU crashes and restores.I usually loses the chrome page. In many instances, GPU tweaks report 100% gpu usage, and the fan is at max. Sysinternals process explorer/windows process explorer or process hacker 2 do not report any GPU usage. What could go wrong ? How do I pinpoint the problem and proceed from here ? I suspect a stealth coin miner...A reboot only restores the GPU to 0%. Malwarebyte or Micros
