cc.exe removal

Recommended Posts

First post to this forum - Great free software - saved my job today!

Got handed my bosses home computer today and told to fix it, was exhibiting big time malware symptoms. Not tagging as virus.

Vista machine, ran malware bytes install, and scanned. Found 20+ instanaces of malware, and tagged 2 items for removal on reboot. One item was program files\cc\agent.exe (may have been cc\cc agent.exe)

On reboot, machine would boot, but immediatly began running "control center" (cc.exe) and locked out desktop. Killed cc.exe via task manager, navigated to the malware bytes exe file via command prompt as task manager was still functional (other than that it was a blank screen to work with). Ran Malware bytes again, but it did not detect the cc.exe program as malware. I then reviewed the log file, determined where cc.exe was located, and deleted it via command prompt (C:/Program files/CC). It appears Malware found and killed the "agent.exe" but left the "cc.exe" file in the same directory alive.

More info on CC agent.exe and cc.exe found posted today on the threat expert.
