Yes, it should work from Safe Mode


You should be able to do one with Windows Defender as well



Please perform a Windows Defender Offline scan and post back the results

Windows Defender Offline is a powerful offline scanning tool that runs from a trusted environment, without starting your operating system.
This topic describes using Windows Defender Offline in Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7.

Using Windows Defender Offline on Windows 10

  1. Select Start , and then select Settings  > Update & Security  > Windows Security  > Virus & threat protection .
  2. On the Virus & threat protection screen, do one of the following:
    • In the current version of Windows 10: Under Current threats, select Scan options.
    • In previous versions of Windows: Under Threat history, select Run a new advanced scan.
  3. Select Windows Defender Offline scan, and then select Scan now.


Where can I find scan results?

To see the Windows Defender Offline scan results:

  2. On the Virus & threat protection screen, do one of the following:

Thank you. That looks good.

After you've scanned again please update Windows.


Your version: 20H2 19042.1469

Current version: 21H2 19044.1469



Please visit the following link to update to the latest version of Windows 10




Once that update has been installed and the computer restarted, click on Start / Search and type in "Check for updates" and have Windows scan for new updates.

Install any new updates found.

When all updates have been completed, please restart the computer two more times and then run the Farbar program again and click on SCAN and post back both new log files.

Using an APK file requires that you disable security on your Android phone which by itself is not a recommended practice. In some rare cases if you truly trust the site because it is a very well known site and not known to practice in any type of phishing or deceptive practices, etc. But even then you would normally just play it on the safe side and wait for a released version from the Play Store.

In this case the file is a threat.


Windows Defender on a local computer also flags it as a Trojan. You sister hopefully did not install it and simply just deleted it.

You do have one faulting service. Not sure exactly  why, but sometimes these type of faults are random and don't often repeat. @decent_strawberry_34

Aside from that the computer looks to be clean from any type of malware or other threats. The computer overall has also been cleaned up in general for normal maintenance type work.

  • right-click kprm_(version).exe and select Run as Administrator.
  • Read and accept the disclaimer.
  • When the tool opens, ensure all boxes under Actions are checked.
  • Under Delete Quarantines select Delete Now, then click Run.
  • Once complete, click OK.
  • A log will open in Notepad titled kprm-(date).txt.
  • Please attach that file to your next reply. (not compulsory)

You can but I would not personally recommend it.

AVG has some of it's own issues and does not score any better than Windows Defender so you're adding software that's actually not as good.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a good product but would be better if you had a paid license.
Hitman Pro isn't helping you if  you already have security software you're using. It's overkill to add too many security products.
SuperAntiSpyware - up to you but it too is not helping your computer and is consuming resources for no good reason
Malwarebytes if it's not the licensed version then it too is just an after the fact scanner and would not prevent an attack in the free version.


If you have a paid license for Malwarebytes my suggestion would be to leave all those off the system and use Malwarebytes with Windows Defender. That is a very strong solution.

Again, up to you but that's my current advice. Pay for Malwarebytes or Emsisoft and you'll have better protection than just Windows Defender alone.

Windows Defender already protects for Ransomware. Again, it scores better than AVG. Up to you but you're hampering your computer picking AVG over Windows Defender

For cookies use a browser extension. That's a rather huge impact on resources to use an entire application to clean cookies.
