tmp Malware won't go away.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I used hitman pro and several malware files were detected in the Appdata\Local\Temp\ folder. I deleted them only to reboot and it picked up more of the same only different names example: "1234.tmp.exe" after deleting and reboot, 5678.tmp.exe would be found. I don't know where this came from or how to get rid of it. Malwarebytes does not pick it up at all so far. Is this something I should worry about. The info on HitmanPro says it is from Nircmd and NirSoft which I have no idea how it got on my pc unless installing a security feature on an external drive causes a false positive. I would appreciate any help.

Update. I used system restore and all seems clear. Malwarebytes is working again too.
