BitCoinMiner Malware

Recommended Posts

I have recently noticed that my CPU and GPU temps seemed to be higher than usual. I asked my friend about it (who knew a thing or two about computers) and he told me that it might be a malware and advised me to download Malwarebytes to check. I did not think it would be the case but after the initial scan, I was notified there are malwares found in my temp file in which was quarantined immediately and removed. However, after every restart, I would still get a notification from Malwarebytes that it detected a malware of the same name and location and I would quarantine and remove again. How can I get rid of this malware permanently? i tried using different software as well such as HitmanPro, Zemana AntiMalware, etc. but still no permanent fix so far.
