CMD line pop problem

Recommended Posts


I recently had a problem where some kind of malware would bring up the command line randomly and bring me to the desktop for a second.  I downloaded Malware Bytes and ran a scan.  

This is the scan report.  I had Malware Bytes quarantine all of the things that it found but I was wondering if there are any other steps that I need to take to secure my computer.  Also, how serious were these threats?  

Thanks you

Hello @BLTurntable

Please see the following which may be part of your issue. I would recommend though that we run a few other scans to make sure the computer is cleaned up, also see below.


Please see the following post concerning an hourly popup from a Microsoft Office scheduled task. Credit to ArnoldLayne for information about this issue.

Quote by Microsoft employee below


Microsoft’s Gregory Jensen replied: “This issue is fixed starting with build 16.0.8201.2025 which is now available as the latest update for those participating in the Office Insiders Slow program.

“It will be included in a future update for those not participating in Insiders.”

It currently is unclear when exactly the fix will be rolled out for all Office users.





Please run the following steps and post back the logs when ready. Make sure you temporarily disable your antivirus while scanning, and re-enable your antivirus when done.

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.

  • Shutdown your antivirus to avoid any conflicts.
  • Right click over JRT.exe and select Run as administrator on Windows Vista or Windows 7, double-click on XP.
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next reply message
  • When completed make sure to re-enable your antivirus
