I just performed a quick scan using the 'Malwarebytes Anti-Malware software's pro version.


12 malicious objects were detected at the end of the scan. Some of the supposedly malicious contents included system files such as 'explorer.exe' and 'iexplorer.exe'.


Here is the log of the scan (my computer name has been removed for security reasons):

Kindly advice at the earliest whether I should remove all the malware detected above or only some of them. Will it be safe to do so?

The entries shown in the Malwarebytes log are malicious and can be removed. Also run the following diagnostic scan and post the produced logs:


Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
