Greetings, Please read and understand as to why I cannot follow FAQs. I am going to need a format first. Windows are inaccessible from system drive. My former employer send me an mail containing .htm archives which were in bytes. Curiosity and Trust towards that person got the best of me and opened one of them in my browser. Things appeared in Russian. Malware bytes warned me of the instance then tried to fix it according to instructions. Then things were occurring such as FTP and Telnet being open in my network connection. Tried to fix it with Avast numerous times as Malware bytes was not reporting such a problem. When the attack was prompted it changed my system files to unusual settings reported by Avast,probably switching on Remote Desktop Connections and reconfiguring files in such a manner as to extract data. I am aware of that as C:// starting shrinking more than 20GB the third time I had rebooted the system. I am also sure that it expanded to my other HDD. Data/Documents containing my personal information (CV) were not extracted but I noticed files missing because they were being deleted and were inaccessible from my end. Also I was not and still not able to Update Windows, use Settings and Control Panel. When windows open,memory was is not functioning properly and will only work when reconnecting the Ethernet cable which then makes things worse. Can only see mouse cursor over a black screen. Windows Host System wouldn't work without internet connection and was creating Virtual Ethernet Connections in my system. Each time I disabled them and restarted the system after malware bytes was downloaded and finishing its disinfection I rebooted the system only to find out that there were more created. Moreover settings were not saved. This moment only C:// is connected to the computer. The system is powered off. I am certain it is infected as files were first start missing from there. I am also aware of the fact that if I try and connect my other hard drive it could be infected as well. Cannot save windows settings and behavior looks like a Deep Freeze is installed on my system. Require Assistance for: 1. Secure Format via USB (it is secure) and possible disinfection of UEFI BIOS( I am not sure/know if it is or it can be infected). After I disconnected the HDD,my SSD and another drive were appearing in boot order settings. The other being on first boot priority, with no ability to run SSD:XXXXXXXXX. I only had SSD:xxxxxxxxx and Apple HDD: xxxxxxxxxxx, then I noticed a P3: XXXXXXXXX (which was not in my official system configuration.), When I run P3 it prompts me to windows recovery system. Tried to sfc /scannow . (Operation could not be completed at 100% check). Also not sure if that P3 is my windows recovery system. Can not see its size. QUESTION 1: Could it be that I can remove it via UEFI settings? 2. Remote assistance for the disinfection of my HDD (as of now it is disconnected but there is a high possibility being infected) as the browser was installed there. I will post logs according to forum FAQs after I format my system and be guided on safe way to reconnect my HDD to PC. 3. Resolve any future related problems regarding FTP and TELNET settings. Thank you in Advance.
Threat scan only seems to scan through the SSD that I have win7 and Malwarebytes 3.0 is installed in. For example, when I perform a threat scan, it goes through 355,000 items. I disconnect my second SSD drive and power cable (the one that doesnt have win7 and Malwarebytes 3.0 installed) and perform another threat scan and only 355,000 items are scanned. Anyway to configure it so threat scans include both of my SSDs? Thanks!
Hello everyone. First Post here for me. Not going to hound or whine for a fix, just looking for a way to deal with this drag on my PC's performance issue. So some details that others might provide are missing here. I've read a lot of posts on this issue, and it seems to be at least a year since a MB Representative said on this Forum that a fix was "in the works". Obviously MB is not interested in fixing this issue or they CAN'T fix it. Either way, if I can't find a workaround to at least deal with it, it will be time for me to find another scanner. I used to leave my PC turned on 24/7 & just locked the screen when finished for the day. Things like system wide malware scans were never a problem as I just scheduled them when I knew I would be away, usually late at night. I no longer leave the PC on. Problem now is that as soon as I turn it on for the day, Malware Bytes (among others) jump immediately into action and gobble up huge portions of my PC’s resources, causing very noticeable and bothersome lags in performance for the things I want to use the PC for. This in spite of a 4.0 GHz, 6-Core CPU, 16GB of RAM and a SSD System drive. A task as simple as just loading a program can take as long as 2-3 minutes where it normally takes only 7-10 SECONDS! My question is this: Is there a FIX for this? If not, is there a way to setup MB to either limit its use of resources (preferred) OR, if that is not possible, set MB to turn off the PC after I *MANUALLY* initiate a scan? Appreciate whatever help anyone can provide, -Gary MB Premium Version: 184.108.40.2063 Component package version: 1.0.262 Update package version: 1.0.4306 Now it
So I want my SSD to just have mainly the operating system on it and a few essential programs call me OCD but space is kinda of a premium here ok. I have one issue with this however some programs automatically install on the C drive (My SSD) they don't even give you an option to choose which drive you put the program on take for example google chrome the browser we have all come to love (Mostly) It automatically shoves itself on this C drive they may be doing this for good reasoning due to compatibility issues or are lazy developers I think the first option might be correct in this case. Google Chrome I would consider an essential program for Windows on an SSD it's cool with me. But for programs that I need but I don't class as important/essential let's say Logitech gaming software which allows me to set options for all my Logitech peripherals such as custom dpi and that RGB sexiness we all can't live without. It really does irritate me that I have these programs installed on C drive and that you cannot choose the location where they get installed at. Hang on second let me name a few more that would probably perfectly function on the D drive (My 1st HDD) rather than my SSD. Bonjour, and Uplay to name a few many others though. Is there any way I can force the program to install on a hard drive without doing something messy like using Regedit or use of a fishy third party program. Even if the non essential/important programs install on the hard drive rather than the SSD there is no guarantee they will work right? (But I can't imagine all programs need to be installed on the C drive) Take steam for example functions perfectly well on my D drive which is great cause I have a lot of steam games and SSD price/GB is expensive compared to HDD space. I know you cannot base everything off 1 program but I was just using steam as a baseline. And don't say upgrade to larger SSD... SSD's are expensive they have come down in price in recent years but are still pricey for my wallet OK i would rather spend that extra money on a better graphics card.
