mrt and mrstub.exe killing/crashing computer


Recommended Posts

 Hello all,

   For about a week now, my computer has been having problems with mrt.exe and mrstub.exe. I did a quick search and found posts staingthat they are very bad and normal, so I decided to post here to make sure.

   About every 1-2 hours, my Kasperky notification pops up with a message the MRT.exe and/or MRSTUB.exe have been moved to trusted applications. After that, either process will auto start and consume up to 90% of my CPU processing power, according to Task Manager. I did delete the files twice, but they repopulate and start running again. The file location was in my C drive but not under any sub-folder.

   Also, I am getting messages from my system in the notifications area that "Windows Defender needs to scan your computer now". I have it turned off. One time I did click on Windows Defender to scan, and a pop-up resulted stating that I have to connect to the internet to proceed; becuase of my suspicion, I disconnected from the internet before I hit the scan button.

   Both MBAM and my Kasperky Total are picking up nothingon scans. Strangley, I have not been able to do a full scan with through Kaspersky for about a month now- a problem I am still working on with Kaspersky.

   Any help/advice would be appreciated.
