windows process manager infection


Recommended Posts

I believe that I am infected with the Windows process manager virus, Yelloader. I am unable to remove the files in Appdata\Local\igfxmtc, and dwduvpr. The processes will cause CPU usage to go to 100% making everything stall. I cannot turn on Norton Firewall or Windows Defender Antivirus. I've run multiple malware and virus removal programs which have cleaned up a lot. But I can't get rid of this!

Hello Mayday789 and welcome to Malwarebytes,

The log FRST.txt is not complete, run FRST again as follows:

Run FRST one more time, ensure all boxes are checkmarked under "Whitelist" but only Addition.txt under "Optional scan" Select scan, when done post the new logs. "FRST.txt" and "Addition.txt"


If you still have smartservice infection you will need access to another PC and a USB flash drive 4gb or above, are those available to you..?

Thanks for the logs/update, unless you have any remaining issues or concerns run the following to clean up...

Download "Delfix by Xplode" and save it to your desktop.

Or use the following if first link is down:

"Delfix link mirror"

If your security program alerts to Delfix either, accept the alert or turn your security off.

Double Click to start the program. If you are using Vista or higher, please right-click and choose run as administrator

Make Sure the following items are checked:

 
  • Remove disinfection tools <----- this will remove tools we may have used.
  • Purge System Restore <--- this will remove all previous and possibly exploited restore points, a new point relative to system status at present will be created.
  • Reset system settings <--- this will reset any system settings back to default that were changed either by us during cleansing or malware/infection


Now click on "Run" and wait patiently until the tool has completed.

The tool will create a log when it has completed. We don't need you to post this.

Any remnant files/logs from tools we have used can be deleted…
