Windows Defender Help

Recommended Posts

Hi, please can anyone direct me to the correct forum or help with Windows defender.  I use Malwarebytes as my primary protection but also have windows defender - It keeps on telling me that I have a threat from Win32/Uwamson.A!ml but does not remove it

I have run:

Malwarebytes - tells me Im clean

Rkill - tells me Im clean

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - reports that Im clean

Yet - windows defender keeps on telling me that the Win32/Uwamson.A!ml is active

Having been a corporate victim of randsomware recently I am always very very worried and cocerned

PLEASE HELP ANYONE - apologies if this is the wrong place

Hello GeneLohrentz and welcome to Malwarebytes,

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Alternative download option: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/6731-farbar-recovery-scan-tool.html

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

If your security alerts to FRST either, accept the alert or turn your security off to allow FRST to run. It is not malicious or infected in any way...

Be aware FRST must be run from an account with Administrator status...
 
  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.(Windows 8/10 users will be prompted about Windows SmartScreen protection - click More information and Run.)
  • Make sure Addition.txt is checkmarked under "Optional scans"

  • Press Scan button to run the tool....
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The tool will also make a log named (Addition.txt) Please attach that log to your reply.


Let me see those logs in your reply...

Thank you,

Kevin....
