Decided to run a scan with malwarebytes since i hadn't run one in some time i was suprised that it detected C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-41-4122223833-2394475517-2626645632-1001\$IHHGUV1.JPG

C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-41-4122223833-2394475517-2626645632-1001\$RGE38E1.JPG

and C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-41-4122223833-2394475517-2626645632-1001\$RHHGUV1.JPG

what i can possible believe is causing this might be when earlier this day i saved an image i searched and realised it was a jpg.png which was odd i deleted it and deleted it from the recycling bin firgered might have caused no harm since i only set it as a wallpaper and didnt execute anything or open the image if anyone can help me with this should i take anymore steps to ensure safety i already removed these

Hello @Hec

Often the System Restore can backup infected files that may or may not have been caught at the time.

Let's scan your computer for any possible ongoing infections, then if all clean we'll go ahead and delete all your system restore points and create a new one once clean.

 

It's quite late for me so I'm off to get some sleep. Will check back on you again sometime tomorrow.

 

Please run the following steps and post back the logs as an attachment when ready.

STEP 01

  • If you're already running Malwarebytes 3 then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • If you don't have Malwarebytes 3 installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • Once the scan is completed click on the Export Summary button and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find, and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If Malwarebytes won't run then please skip to the next step and let me know on your next reply.

STEP 02

Please download AdwCleaner by Malwarebytes and save the file to your Desktop.

  • Right-click on the program and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Accept the Terms of use.
  • Wait until the database is updated.
  • Click Scan.
  • When finished, please click Clean.
  • Your PC should reboot now if any items were found.
  • After reboot, a log file will be opened. Copy its content into your next reply.

 

RESTART THE COMPUTER Before Running Step 3

STEP 03
Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan 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 also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've, run the tool before you need to place a check mark here.
  • Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well.

 

Thanks

Ron
