MaskVPN Infection

Recommended Posts

HI, I was hoping to get some guidance in a way to remove MaskVPN from my PC. I thought I uninstalled it, but I found that it's still in my C drive's Program Files (x86) folder. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello @Grim1373  and  :welcome:


My name is MKDB and I will assist you.



Let's keep these principles as we proceed. Make sure to read the entire post below first.

  • Please follow the steps in the given order and post back the log files.
  • Please copy and paste all log files into your post.
  • Before we start, please make sure that you have an external backup, not connected to this system, of all private data.
  • Only run the tools I guide you to. Please don't run any other scans, download, install or uninstall any programs while I'm working with you.
  • As English is not my native language, please do not use slang or idioms. It may be hard for me to understand.
  • If you do not respond within 4 days, your topic will be closed.
  • Cracked or hacked or pirated programs are not only illegal, but also will make a computer a malware victim. Having such programs installed, is the easiest way to get infected. It is the leading cause of ransomware encryptions. It is at times also a big source of current trojan infections. If you are running any kin of illegal software on your system, please uninstall them now, before we start the cleaning procedure.



Step 1

Please download the suitable version of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) and save it to your desktop: 32bit | 64bit

Also, I plan to reset my C drive and reinstall Windows 11 after I get this sorted out. Would that make all of what I'm doing here pointless?

If you're planning to do a clean install of Windows 11 anyway, it does (in my eyes) not make much sense to start a cleanup process here.

Please keep me updated.
