Infected by 32-Bit Setup Launcher on system

Recommended Posts

Hello! can i piggy back on this post? Just as the user above im having the same issue. I ran the FRST64 Utility (which i cant run now) and got the txt files needed. It seems that setup32 virus is smart enough to where after a few uses it recognizes the app as anti-malware and starts blocking it as well... let me know if you can help me here or if i need to open up another thread. Thank you for any help you can provide! :D

Hello, Ive been trying to remove this virus that, from reading other posts, seems to be spreading around. Basically a process called 32-bit Setup Launcher is in task manager and freezes anything that has to do with anti-malware even web browsers. Im attaching the logs that i was able to get from FRST64 before it was too blocked and I couldn't run it again. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Hello @Fifthsin


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


  • 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.


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 Now.
  • When finished, please click Clean & Repair.
  • 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

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.
