  1. Anybody have any suggestions? This thing is altering all antivirus and malware removal or blocking downloads. Factory reset doesn't get rid of it. These are from Farbar but nothing else will get rid of it. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  2. I am running the latest version of Malwarebytes Premium 3.7.1 and under the scan options, I have "Scan for Rootkits" turned on/enabled. BUT......when I read a scan report and view the Advanced report, under the Scan Options section of the report, the Rootkits option is listed as "Disabled" Why is there this discrepancy? Are rootkits being scanned or not? Win7 SP1. Thank you in advance for your bot replies!
  3. Posted Yesterday, 01:59 PM I'm a completely novice computer user. Recently, I have been having some malware issues on my PC which is Windows 10. I already have an antivirus, Quick Heal Total Security, and recently, it detected a Coinhive mining malware on my computer, plus, it keeps showing pop up windows that it has blocked access to multiple harmful websites even when I'm accessing reliable websites like Amazon and others. I researched a bit on the Coinhive virus and found out some serious things, and so I'm currently scanning my computer for all kinds of malware, spyware, adware, ro

  5. Hello malware bytes just detected a file known as: Unknown.rootkit.driver which seemed to have infected: C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\agilevpn.sys i am wondering if this is a false positive?

  6. Hello, I am suspecting that my malwarebytes is not working properly on preventing malicious websites, since I updated the windows >>> / windows malicious software removal tool for Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, 2016 x64 Edition - February 2017 (KB890830) Installation date: 28/02/2017 11:45 After updating it was necessary to reboot... and when it returned malwarebyte did not work, it was frozen and service unprotected ... reinstal....l:( , and since then stopped sending website blocking notification as it happened. Does anyone help me test?
  7. Although I've turned Rootkits on, I get the following message in my reports: Memory: Enabled, Startup: Enabled, Filesystem: Enabled, Archives: Enabled, Rootkits: Disabled, Heuristics: Enabled, PUP: Enabled, PUM: Enabled. I would like to know why Malwarebytes Premium is not scanning Rootkits on my computer. Any suggestions?
  8. I just purchased a second license for Malwarebytes Premium 3.0 so I have it on both of my computers. But I'm having a problem with the new computer when scanning with Rootkits enabled. I was running a scan today for about 8 hours and it just wouldn't finish. The screenshot tells the story better than my writing. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  9. I had version and was not notified and updated with 3 like I have been in the the past with other new versions. Why is that and will I not be notified of new versions in the future? Is "Scan for Rootkits" not a default setting because it's not really necessary or does it have to with scan time as well? Thanks, NVF
  10. Hello, I suspect my PC to be infected by some malware as it had turned Avast service off and I could not turn it back on. I did a custom scan with Malwarebytes with Scan for rootkits options ON in both scan settings and malwarebytes general settings. The scan also showed scanning for rootkits (rotating curved arrows and hourglass inside a circle) and completed without any infections. However when i look inside the reports, it says that the Scanning for rootkits disbaled . I have repeated this many times now and get the result same. Do you have any idea how this happens ? I also see a file
  11. Hi, basically I have ran a threat scan and found no problems, but when I look at the logs it always says deep rootkit disabled, even though I have checked the box in 'detection and protection' section. <options> <memory>enabled</memory> <startup>enabled</startup> <filesystem>enabled</filesystem> <archives>enabled</archives> <rootkits>disabled</rootkits> <deeprootkit>disabled</deeprootkit> <heuristics>enabled</heuristics> <pup>enabled</pup> <pum>enabled</pum>
  12. My Windows 10 Pro system recently began an issue upon resuming from sleep. The system never recovers from sleep (blank display). After a short time, the system shares the error "Driver Power State Failure" just before automatically rebooting. After much troubleshooting it appears the issue is with selecting the "Scan for rootkits" in the Detection and Protection Settings. Turn it on, the resume from sleep issue occurs. Turn it off, issue goes away. All other settings are checked in the Detection and Protection section. The version of Malwarebytes is Home Premium
  13. Hello! This Is My First Post About Having Problems With MBAM. Well, I Turned On My PC.... First Message Was From ESET Saying That I Have To Renew My License Because It Will End Within 12 Days... Ok.... So Far I Think It Is Good... I Closed The Message From The OK Button.. Then MBAM Started As Usual As A Task.. After A Few Seconds A Message Came Up Saying That Driver RootkitDDA Could Not Be Loaded and That It Is A Common Phenomenon (or something) Caused By Rootkits. I Selected To Restart... Before Windows Shutting Down Screen Another Message Came Up Saying SDKCreate Failed With Code 20025 Then
  14. Please help! My 4-year old HP laptop (XP sp3) started acting out 2 weeks ago after a Comodo Firewall update. After the reboot, my pc would either be super slow, the wi-fi won't connect although my network is displayed, or take forever to power off. It never occurred to me that malware might be involved since my AVG and Comodo firewall were always on and updated. I also never click on suspicious links or email attachments. Thinking the culprit was the Comodo update, I uninstalled & reinstalled the firewall twice. The final time I did it, I thought everything was fine, but when I tried a new
  15. Hi, i just installed AVG 2014 (30 day free trial) to my laptop and did a scan. It found 3 rootkits. I was told to come here and post these .

  16. I have downloaded and ran the programme Rootkit Hunter and the results are worrying. I don't know much about malware other than a malicious individual has persistently been installing it onto my machines via malicious emails - this time targeting my iPhone 4 (which I promptly got rid of upon discovering this individual's presence and replaced with a new Samsung S4, which is probably infected as well now) first; and from there using my house Wifi network to get onto my Macbook Pro 10.8.3 (which is the machine I am on now, and the machine the results refer to); and also my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.
  17. Hi. My computer has been running very slowly for about 2 weeks now and I started trying to figure out what was wrong. My regular security consists of avast free. I downloaded and ran each of malwarebytes, spybot S&D and advanced systemcare ultimate. The problem seems to be fixed for a few minutes but it always goes back to the way it was before. while running one of the scans, a system popup appeared saying that windows had detected a possible rootkit. It told me to restart and run a boot-time scan. It ran an avast boot-time scan but found nothing. I have been looking up info on
  18. For some time now I have been trying to get rid of this malware. It seems to effect my browser by making findamo.com my homepage. I have uninstalled mozilla and google chrome because of this issue. It seems to not be affecting IE but I cant be sure. I have searched and deleted it from everywhere I found it (programs files, registry keys). I have ran several different antimalware programs (malwarebytes, super antispyware, avast, etc.) and none of them are removing it. As of right now, there are about 60 files in my C: drive that are named crazy things like "2aa3b7021a5e19397fccfc" and insi
  19. Malwarebytes is able to remove the rootkits, but they keep coming back. They return slower if I boot into safe mode. The primary symptom is redirection to unwanted websites and opening up new browsing windows to unwanted websites. My DDS and attach files are below. Thanks in advance.

  21. I stupidly got myself infected with Smart Fortress 2012. I've been running Malwarebytes scans from safe mode, and after multiple scans over the course of 2 days, I'm still picking up 7-20 rootkits per scan. This is clearly not a good sign. I'm at work at the moment but will post my MBAM logs ASAP. Please let me know if there are other scans you would like to see as well. Thank you.
