Need help manually removing virus

Hello :)

I would like to manually remove a stubborn virus that's located in the catroot2 folder. It's detected as TR/Virtool.INF.Autorun.241.66 (in Avira, Malwarebytes scan comes clean). If I delete it from the quarantine, will it be removed from my computer or will it just be removed from the quarantine and still active on the computer?

I've scanned my computer with many anti-malware and anti-virus programs, they found some adware and some other stuff but not that one, as Avira still detects it. But I think Avira is right that I do have something on my computer because of the high CPU usage lately, and there's a chance the adware is coming from the TR/Virtool...

If deleting the file from quarantine will not delete it from the computer, may I ask how do I manually delete it?

Thanks.

Hello and :welcome:

 

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them.
Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button. button.

  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.

  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

Ok, I did find it suspicious because I did visite a website that showed a lot of pop-ups when it was detected, that's why I trusted Avira. But I found it odd that no other anti-malware or anti-virus program detected a trojan horse, only Avira did. I'll contact them, and thank you for your help and time :)
