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\AppData\Roaming\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\Children\001\Internet Settings". BTW "Internet Settings" folder is hidden. Showing hidden items didn't help. But going directly to the address let me in. Content of the folder is attached. There is a "config.txt" file in the folder which led me thinking it is a stealth miner malware. You will get when you see the config file which is attached also. If any of you guys want me to share the files for analyzing purposes I will gladly share them with you. But I want them to be gone of course. malwarebytes report, FRST.txt, Addition.txt files are attached. TL;DR: Cryptocurrency miner malware infected. Need to remove. Please help. Required files are attached. Thank you config.txt malwarebytes.txt FRST.txt Addition.txt
Hi, So I have run scans, removed the identified issues and restarted many times, only to have the same issues reappear. Malwarebytes has always been the white knight in these situations. At my wits end and don't know what else to do. Help? Addition.txt FRST.txt
