Ping.exe is F-ing my pc


Recommended Posts

Ok.. so about 3 days ago i downloaded what was suposed to be a flash update.. opened the file and it crashed my pc.. got a bluescreen .. i didnt pay attention cause my laptop overheats sometimes and bluescreens me.. i got mad at my pc and just restarted it and went to sleep.. 0_o(stupid)..

next day i log onto WOW and realize i have super low fps.. i start gamebooster and still have shity perfromance... as usual i check through my task manager and i find ping.exe (not usually there) an its munching 70-99 cpu.. i ran a closed it and it reopened after a few minutes.. i just kept closing it.. i finaly got to the point of running a full scan using symantec AntiVirus.. picked up a trojan.. but that was it.. so i downloaed MBAM and updated it. After that i ran a Full scan only to find another trojan.. Ive suspended ping.exe using process-explorer for now.. but i dont know if it will hold.. It doesnt solve the problem though.. so i came here.. any help? im totaly freaking out like im tripping on choclate monkey balls.. im posting a quickscan log..

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes

If you think you are infected, here are the steps needed to get your computer cleaned....

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

Don't use any temporary file cleaners unless requested - this can cause data loss and make recovery difficult

You have 3 Options that you can choose from as listed below:

  • Option 1 —— Free Expert advice in the Malware Removal Forum
  • Option 2 —— Paying customer -- Contact Support via email
  • Option 3 —— Premium, Fee-Based Support


As we don't deal with malware removal in the
General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum
, you need to start a topic in the

    , skipping any steps you are unable to complete.

Please do not post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies.

If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.

    • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
