First message at 5:48 pm yesterday, then every hour starting at 5:53 pm I have been getting hourly popups from malware bytes that trojan has been blocked. It doesn't matter if I have a web browser open or not. I am not noticing any system slow downs, redirects, or unusual popups

Hello @RSidwell and :welcome:


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.

I ran the Malware Bytes scan and it didn't seem to detect anything. It was odd as the trojan message popped up while scanning. version Malwarebytes premium 3.7.1

I downloaded and ran the adwcleaner, that did find about 6 things.

I downloaded and ran the FarBar recovery scan tool. It generated files that look like applications loaded and registry settings. I am not sure what am looking for with this tool.

the log files requested are attached.

AdwCleaner[C00].txt Threat Scan.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt

After running AdwCleaner and FarBar the messages have stopped so far. My guess is it was AdwCleaner

Great, glad to hear all seems to be working well again @RSidwell

I will go ahead and leave you with the following information to help you keep the computer clean going forward.



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)
