Windows stuck at loading screen after running Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

So about a week ago i somehow got a virus. First i just went around directories like the program files and appdata. I found a few viruses and adware and deleted them manually. I then decided to run Malwarebytes and it found a ton of viruses including a browser hijacker (yeabest.cc). I quarantined and removed all th files, but then a day later i launched Google Chrome and it was redirected to Yeabest.cc again. I tried resetting and redownloading Chrome, but nothing worked. I ran Malwarebytes and it found a new bunch of viruses which i deleted.

I later found out that the Yeabest.cc browser hijacker had changed the destination path for Google Chrome to run another program which started the yeabest.cc page. I removed the extension but it came back to the file after about 20 minutes. After that i have run Malwarebytes upwards of 15 times in a few days. Yesterday when the program asked me to restart the computer i did so, but when windows loaded again, it got stuck on the loading screen of Windows. I've restarted the PC many times, changed boot options and resetted BIOS setting. Nothing seems to help, and i can't even get into the normal BIOS recovery page as my motherboard has some fancy UEFI BIOS that makes it so that when pressing F8 or F5 during startup, it just goes in to the UEFI BIOS...

I'm contemplating just buying a new SSD and reinstalling Windows, but it would be a very sad situation to have to throw out a lot of my work.

I'd love to send some log files, but as i cannnot access the PC, that won't be possible.

The system is a rather high-end desktop PC with multiple drives.


Thank you very much in advance for the assistance

Thanks for the reply @AdvancedSetup

As i sadly didn't get a quick reply, i had no other option than to simply reset Windows and delete all programs on the PC.

No viruses now, but as i can see, this is not a single case issue. Really seems like something the Malwarebytes devs should look into.
