Hello @xRaydenx

I've seen a couple of these before. It generally turns out that the computers are not infected and that due to timing or possible internal program conflicts windows that are normally hidden may show and possibly seem to be related to shutdown issues.

Since Malwarebytes did find some threats let's go ahead and have you run some other scans.

Please temporarily disable your McAfee antivirus and run the following scan and post back the results.


Please perform a Windows Defender Offline scan and post back the results

Windows Defender Offline is a powerful offline scanning tool that runs from a trusted environment, without starting your operating system.
This topic describes using Windows Defender Offline in Windows 10

Using Windows Defender Offline on Windows 10

  1. Select Start , and then select Settings  > Update & Security  > Windows Security  > Virus & threat protection .
  2. On the Virus & threat protection screen, do one of the following:
    • In the current version of Windows 10: Under Current threats, select Scan options.
    • In previous versions of Windows: Under Threat history, select Run a new advanced scan.
  3. Select Windows Defender Offline scan, and then select Scan now.

McAfee is pretty difficult to fully disable at times. Let's go ahead and try scanning with Kaspersky then.

Go ahead and disable McAfee, then run the scan below, please.



Please download and run the following Kaspersky antivirus scanner to remove any found threats

Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool

Let me know if it finds anything or not
