Thank you for the logs and information @Nicholas0009

Acronis thinks everything is okay. Looks like it is/was just a temporary issue.

I'm not seeing any signs of any type of infection or unwanted software.

Are you experiencing any specific issue at this point in time?

 

No, I am not experiencing any type of issue I mainly made this 1 to make sure that my pc is safe as after I fac reset after I got the infection from running the program it came back. Then I was told by a friend to format my drives and reset which I did so I just wanted to make sure it was gone. Also possibly a malware researcher to take that malware and expose what it does and how to get rid of it, or add it to Malwarebytes as a detection since I have seen posts about that same folder C:\ProgramData\MM(the rest of the letters).

It's up to you, but I'd recommend that you install it. But let me have you run the following first before  you do that.

 

 

SecurityCheck by glax24              

I would like you to run a tool named SecurityCheck to inquire about the current-security-update status of some applications.

  • Download SecurityCheck by glax24 from here  https://tools.safezone.cc/glax24/SecurityCheck/SecurityCheck.exe
  • and save the tool on the desktop.
  • If Windows's  SmartScreen block that with a message-window, then
  • Click on the MORE INFO spot and over-ride that and allow it to proceed.
  • This tool is safe.   Smartscreen is overly sensitive.
  • Right-click  with your mouse on the Securitycheck.exe  and select "Run as administrator"   and reply YES to allow to run & go forward
  • Wait for the scan to finish. It will open in a text file named SecurityType.txt. Close the file.  Attach it with your next reply.
  • You can find this file in a folder called SecurityCheck, C:\SecurityCheck\SecurityCheck.txt

Open Malwarebytes and go to Settings, Security and uncheck the following so the Windows Defender will run alongside Malwarebytes

I did this do you want me to do anything else? Or should my machine be safe?
