Do i have a RAT or something?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

So I was playing a game when suddenly the game started lagging like crazy. I close the game and decide to open up another game. The game crashes multiple times while I try to open I it. (that specific game has never crashed on me so kinda weird). My rightmost screen (i have 3) starts to flicker with white and black boxes. Moving the cursor around would make the boxes glitch around and do weird stuff. Shortly after that some of my programs crash and all 3 screens go black with a thin white border around them. When I clicked my mouse I would hear a very unfamiliar beeping sound (not a sound from windows or any other program I use).

 

I restart the PC and decide to scan my system fully with Malwarebytes. It scans around 450k files until Windows pops up with a message telling me there's a critical error and it has to shut down. The PC restarts, and when I get back to the desktop and open Malwarebytes, I have now been downgraded to the Free version of Malwarebytes. (wtf??)

I got some errors in Malwarebytes, one of them being "Cannot connect to the license server, check your internet connection" or something along those lines.

Anyone have any idea whats going on with my PC?

I have looked manually at several common places for RATs and other malware but haven't been able to find anything suspicious. I have also checked my running processes and haven't found anything either.

 

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

No. Bad update.

 

 

 

So a bad update has caused black and white boxes to flicker on my screen, my games to crash, my programs crashing, and a weird black screen with a weird unfamiliar beeping sound? Not to mention the downgrade of malware bytes from premium to free? The developer only mentions high ram usage?

What do you think high RAM usage does? It crashes your PC.

 

And your licence is unable to connect to the servers.

I am aware that high ram usage crashes your PC. High ram usage doesnt create flickering white and black boxes and make beeping sounds. Do you even read what im typing? lol
