Coordinator File Problem

Recommended Posts

I had a virus removed by a professional service.  Now my computer locks up or performs strangely a few times a day.  When problems occur I am finding a large "coordinator file", when I use task manager.  After shutting down this file, the computer works fine, but the coordinator file reoccurs and I have trouble again.  What is my best approach to ending this problem?

Hello :welcome: 

I will guide you along on looking for remaining malware. Lets keep these principles as we go along.

  • Removing malware can be unpredictable
  • Please don't run any other scans, download, install or uninstall any programs while I'm working with you.
  • Only run the tools I guide you to.
  • Do not run online games while case is on-going. Do not do any free-wheeling web-surfing.
  • The removal of malware isn't instantaneous, please be patient.
  • Cracked or 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 big source of current trojan infections. Please uninstall them now, if any are here, before we start the cleaning procedure.
  • Please stick with me until I give you the "all clear".
  • If your system is running Discord, please be sure to Exit out of it while this case is on-going.

See if you can do this. Download and save a file named Iexplore.exe from here https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/

and once the browser has finished the download, can you RUN that from there.

That Iexplore is another name for the tool known as RKILL by Bleepingcomputer.


I would like a report set for review. This is a report only.

Please download MALWAREBYTES MBST Support Tool

Once you start it click Advanced >>> then Gather Logs

Have patience till the run has finished.
Attach the mbst-grab-results.zip from the Desktop to your reply..

Have Lots and lots of patience. We will be running differents tools and scans over multiple sessions, back and forth.

IF you have a question or some issue comes up, Stop and ask me first. I also ask that you not do any web surfing. and also to not play games online or off of your pc.

Hello @Graydrake Good afternoon. How are you doing ? Requesting status update. And by the way, suggest you keep out of Task Manager. You do not really need it. The report I requested from you IS something truly helpful so that I can guide you forward.
