BitDefender and Application Coinminer GE in InetCache

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Last week my Bitdefender started to detect a CoinMiner thread. It blocks it and then deletes it every time, but it keeps happening every day when I turn on my computer. I have seen that  there are other people in this forum with the same problem but I am not sure how to proceed. I am scared of deleting something that I shouldn't and ruin my PC. 

Any kind of help would be very much appreciated.

Download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST).
Choose the 32 or 64 bit version for your system.
and save it to a folder on your computer's Desktop.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

How to attach a file:
In the Reply section in the bottom of the topic Select Click the Choose a File.
Navigate to the location of the File.
Click the file. It will appear in section.
Click the Saving button.

Please attach the logs for my review.

Let me know what problems persists.

Wait for further instructions

Hi, @IsaG   

If BitDfender is still showing the same messages, then I would suggest you do what follows.


[ A  ]
Show all folders/files
What follows is a first step to have Windows 10 show all files and folder. Do not let this spook you out.
There is a how-to at Tenforums. Use either option one or two or three
https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/7078-turn-off-show-all-folders-windows-10-navigation-pane.html

[  B  ]
Get to a Elevated Command-prompt window:
If your pc runs on Windows 7 or 8, see https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/783-elevated-command-prompt.html


Otherwise, for Windows 10
Select the Windows key and X key together, from the xmenu select Command Prompt (Admin)

[  C  ]
Then COPY the entire following line ( as is )  and then Paste it onto the Coomand prompt

del /s /q C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\low\IE\*.*

then tap the Enter-key.
This will delete all content of the INetCache\IE\  sub-folder

Know that the sub-folder Inetcache is just a temporary area for Internet Explorer browser
