Found Maleware? WOW6432Updater

Recommended Posts

in the last days i noticed sometimes a command-window opened up and closes immediately.
I was not able to see the content and since now i was not able to reproduce.

Because of that i ran MWB and it found a WOW6432Updater.

By searching for that i found the post of a user with the same problem.

I did the workaround from kevinf80's first answer and hope anybody can help me now, that im safe for now.
I hope its not a problem, that my programs run on german.

Thank you for the log. It looks good overall. We'll worry about the game once the system has been confirmed clean.


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


  • If you're already running Malwarebytes 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 installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and select Scan and let it run.
  • Once the scan is completed click on the View Report button, then the Export 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 in 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. Attach or Copy its content into your next reply.


RESTART THE COMPUTER Before running Step 3

  • 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.

  • Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well.

Well I can't create a script to run with the modified FRST logs

All we can do is run another antivirus scanner. Please disable your Avast antivirus and download and run the Kaspersky antivirus scanner

Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool - Download

Let me know if it finds anything or not

So in the last fixlist there was no Profile-Name needed.
If its needed now i can replace it after downloading.

So i ran KVRT, it only fount a file in the Quarantine-Folder of Adware.

Based on what our scanners have found and that KVRT did not really find anything either the computer should be safe from infection at this time.

We could do some generic cleanup with FRST if you wanted, but that would just be for general PC clean up not because of any threat.

How is the computer running now?

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)
