Hi, I desperately need help here. I am using Malwarebytes Premium installed on Windows 10 build 1809. Somehow this malware got through and it has been very persistent. Malwarebytes scans do not detect it and even after a system reset, it comes back. I notice that there are folders that should not be there and suspect that the virus has created a virtual drive from which to launch a fake copy of my windows system. The reason why I suspect I am infected is that everytime I click on an application file. I get a pop up with Chinese characters. So far it has been a irritant because it seems to run on a schedule. However, running programs from Desktop seems to bypass the virus for a short period of time. Scanning with both Windows Defender and Malwarebytes reveal nothing an I fear both have been compromised. Running Trend Micro's Anti-Threat Toolkit picked out 14 threats. But even after cleaning nthensustem.after that and rebooting, the malware is still back in force. Please help. Or should I just opt.for the nuclear option and completely format my SSD drive and reinstall Windows from a USB? I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X10 Yoga. Thanks in advance.
