Malware is detecting it a trojan i dont have a picture because malware keeps quarantining  it. if someone can help me Remove/ tell me if it a threat or not it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Luther2343 and welcome to Malwarebytes,

Disable smart screen if it interferes with software we may have to use:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/what-is-smartscreen-and-how-can-it-help-protect-me-1c9a874a-6826-be5e-45b1-67fa445a74c8

Please remember to enable when we are finished....

Next,

Disable any Anti-virus software you have installed if it stops software we may use from working:

Please remember to enable AV software when we are finished running scans....

Next,

Lets grab some logs and see whats going on, continue with the following:

If you do not have Malwarebytes installed do the following:

Double click on the installer and follow the prompts.

When the install completes or Malwarebytes is already installed do the following:

Open Malwarebytes, select > small cog wheel top right hand corner, that will open "settings" from there select "Security" tab.

Scroll down to "Scan Options" ensure Scan for Rootkits and Scan within Archives are both on....

Close out the settings window, this will take you back to "DashBoard" select the Blue "Scan Now" tab......

When the scan completes quarantine any found entries...

To get the log from Malwarebytes do the following:
 
  • Open Malwarebytes
  • Click on the Detection History tab > from main interface.
  • Then click on "History" that will open to a historical list
  • Double click on the Scan log which shows the Date and time of the scan just performed.

Perform a scan and Click Finish when the scan is done.


Retrieve the MSRT log as follows, and post it in your next reply:

I'm fine besides the fact that I get a Malwarebytes notification every 5 minutes about them putting viruses into quarantine. And thinking what would I do if I don't get a Malwarebytes member ship and that nothing would quarantine the virus

Hiya Luther2343,

I see that you`ve told Nasdaq that you will continue with this thread, is that correct..? Continue:

Uninstall Discord reboot when complete. It would appear the version you have installed is exploited...

Next,

Run another scan with Malwarebytes, post the produced log...

Next,

Run FRST one more time, ensure all boxes are checkmarked under "Whitelist" but only Addition.txt under "Optional scan" Select scan, when done post the new logs. "FRST.txt" and "Addition.txt"

Thank you,

Kevin.
