BitCoin Miner Removal Help

Recommended Posts

I have reason to believe that my Steam install has been infected with a Bitcoin mining virus. 

The Program will run fine for a few minutes then extreme screen stutter and my fans will kick up to full speed. A brief flash in Task Manager shows 100% GPU use by SteamClient.exe. I've tried several approaches to remove this virus will no luck. Including Complete re-install of Steam and several free malware removal programs with no luck.

Let's get real. If you're not backing up your data and you're still using Google Chrome then you're just not serious about Privacy, Safety, and protecting your data. Malwarebytes is a fantastic program but you still need to back up your data and you still need to block scripts and Ads in your browser. 
If you're still using Google Chrome I would highly suggest you consider using Firefox instead. For more advanced users you might consider installing NoScript as well (it does have a higher learning curve though)

Help Secure your browsers

Please install uBlock Origin for your browsers to better protect your system

FireFox, ChromeOpera , SafariMicrosoft Edge
AdBlock for Internet Explorer
