Preferred Solution: I scanned my old computer w/ Malwarebytes, Bitdefender and Zemana - Is the computer still infected?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: I scanned my old computer w/ Malwarebytes, Bitdefender and Zemana - Is the computer still infected?

What do you mean by "still infected"?
Had you faced some unusual behavior, corruption of some software or system functions, or some AV scanners you used identified malware on your system?

If the system worked just fine the last time you used it in 2016, it should be fine now too.
Not using it (system kept off) ofcourse introduces no malware during that phase. Just be careful now that you've started using it.
By that, you know what I mean. Safe browsing, not accessing unknown/risky files and sites, having an up-to-date AV, using sandbox/VM to run questionable files first etc.

Ok, so lately i bought a new laptop and left my old desktop to rust in the corner, but recently ive had to stop using my laptop due to personal issues and im forced to go back to desktop that my family has being using, When i get on it its kind of slow and infected so i run a couple scans for things such as Malware, Virus, Spyware.

Hi everyone .. I'm new here... Neighbor's PC is infected with perhaps many things... one of which is likely AV2009. Reading the various posts I see similar problems, and Malwarebytes seem like a commonly recommended solution. Symptoms are redirected web searches, AV2009 false detection notices/offer to buy, andvarious other bogus offers. I did delete some of the AV2009 files manually, and removed it from startup. IE and Firefox act similar... when I try to go various MBAM download sites I get msgs saying site can't be found. Some sites, like Hotmail, MSN, and some other sites work fine, so Internet connection is working. I downloaded, installed, and updated MBAM on my computer ... scanning worked fine here (even found a few things here that I need to look at closer). I then moved the MBAM folder via CD over to the infected computer. When I try to run MBAM I get the hourglass for a few sconds and then nothing happens. I tried disabling their AV software, tried it in safe mode, tried it after renaming MBAM, and still can't get it running on this infected PC. I did get Adaware downloaded... it found nothing. Their PC Cillan AV product also came up scan-free.Any suggestions before I need to to admit to my neighbor that I've run out of options?Thanks!!Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hi All, I'm looking for some help finding out if my home machine is infected with anything.

The machine is an imac running windows 7 via bootcamp.

My computer at work came down with something and I routinely transfer files back and forth and run a portable version of firefox on a usb key in both locations so I'm worried.

I tried running malwarebytes and every time it would give me a blue screen of death after about 10 minutes of running. I switched over to safe mode and it ran successfully without finding anything but I'm still worried.

Someone on another forum told me to run combofix so I did, though I see now that that may have been a mistake to do prior to being asked to do so by someone here.

In any case, I've ran combofix and DDS from windows safe mode just a few minutes ago and will post the logs shortly.

Thanks much for any help.

My antivirus program, Bitdefender, is unable to detect 1852623 items in this folder and this is pretty much what shows up in the file log for all entries. http://prntscr.com/d1y1u4  Could this possibly be a virus, or is this nothing to worry about?
 
Edit: I scanned again, and this time it scanned only 700k items (400k less than last time), and skipped 2.2 million items.  The only reason that comes to mind for me is the steam update, and the skyrim install files I had to download for first time playing.

You log onto your computer and it takes forever to boot. When it finally does, a few unfamiliar applications litter your desktop, and your browser immediately sends you to an ad for hair loss products.

Sounds like your PC has a problem with malware.

So what should you do? Before you flip out, try these simple steps to clean up your infected computer.

Computer acting suspect? Do a little digging and check for symptoms.

Does your web browser freeze or become unresponsive?
Do you get redirected to web pages other than the ones you are trying to visit?
Are you bombarded with pop-up messages?
Does your computer run slower than usual?
Do you see new icons on your desktop that you don?t recognize?
These are just some of the issues that are characteristic of a malware infection. Unfortunately, even if you see nothing wrong with your computer, there may be trouble brewing under the surface, sneaking around and screwing with your files undetected. So here?s what to do:
Use protection: Enter safe mode.

Remove CDs and DVDs, and unplug USB drives from your computer. Then shut down.
When you restart, press the F8 key repeatedly. This should bring up the Advanced Boot Options menu.
Select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter. Only the bare minimum programs and services are used in this mode. If any malware is programmed to automatically load when Windows starts, entering safe mode may block the attempt.

Hi.
 
I run a Windows 8 Core i3 64-bit machine (Windows Experience Index is 5.6).
 
For a couple of weeks since I installed it, MalwareBytes keeps blocking malicious websites continuously. It is scary because even when the computer is idle and there's no internet activity, MalwareBytes shows messages of blocking access to malicious websites. I have no clue where this activity coming from. Please help! Am I infected? The computer's been running decently but I am still scared. Along with MalwareBytes, I use Windows Defender as my main antivirus.
 
Do let me know if any other information is needed.

A:MalwareBytes blocks malicious website when computer is idle. Am I infected?

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Malicious Website Blocking (IP Protection) is part of the Protection Module in the Pro version and works after it is enabled. When attempting to go to a potential malicious website, Malwarebytes will block the attempt and provide an alert. Notification that an IP address has been blocked does not necessarily mean the computer is infected. Some legitimate programs on your computer (i.e. iTunes, Instant Messenger client, P2P programs, web browsers) have access to the Internet and that action can trigger an IP alert if it tried to access a malicious IP address. These types of events are stored in the "protection-log". Your firewall should be able to give you a list of such programs so you can confirm if they are legitimate.IP Protection is also designed to block incoming connections it determines to be malicious. Botnets and Zombie computers scour the net, randomly scanning a block of IP addresses, searching for vulnerable ports - commonly probed ports and make repeated attempts to access them. Hackers use "port scanning", a popular reconnaissance technique, to search for vulnerable computers with open ports using IP addresses or a group of random IP address ranges so they can break in and install malicious programs. Malwarebytes is doing its job by blocking this kind of traffic and alerting you about these intrusion attempts which it stores in the "protection-log".More information about IP Protection can be found in the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Malici...

Today, even when I was trying to read articles on bleeping computer.com, from time to time, my click would get redirected to random sites not on bleeping computer.
Furthermore, recently I began to notice that when using google search, on Chrome ONLY but not on Firefox, I always got a list of ad on the very top of my search list, with a sign next to those ad's "Search Enhanced Results by not set".

I followed the instructions found on this site to remove the browser hijacker Granena.ru. (How to remove Granena.ru redirect (Virus Removal Guide))

The instructions said to install and run Zemana, then install and run Malwarebytes, then install and run Hitmanpro.

Between Zemana and Hitmanpro the problem was solved!!!

However, I had Malwarebytes installed already. After installing Zemana, my malwarebytes icon in the tray disappeared. Clicking on the desktop icon or on the program in the start menu does not work. The program does not run. When I tried to remove Zemana the computer hangs up. Attempting to reinstall Malwarebytes hangs also, because the first step is to remove the old installation. I am unable to remove either of them. I haven't tried to remove Hitmanpro.

I just paid around 50? in November for two years of Malwarebytes and don't want to loose the program. The other two are just trial versions so when they expire I will be without and anti-malware program.

Any help or suggestion will be appreciated.

Thank you!
 

A:Zemana anti malware with malwarebytes

I would assume they would conflict.
Even if they could work alongside each other, I would consider that a waste of resources; in some cases, running even one with real-time protection could be considered a waste of resources as you can simply have them as on-demand scanners and use them once a week or whenever you want to scan a suspicious file.

Hello All,

I am a newbie to this forum, and have a lifetime license for Malwarebytes 3 and for Zemana AL. I run a desktop Windows 10 PC and have never been happy with Windows Defender, especially with the fact that you never know if it is running due to finicky system tray icons.

I also have some short term licenses to McAfee AV and Trend Micro which I have to renew.

That being said, being that I have lifetime licenses for the above, I decided to install them both together and exclude them from one another in their exclusion options. I feel this would give me more than adequate protection than an AV and one of them by itself.

My question is doing you think running MB3 and ZAL together is a good combo rather than one, and an AV? So far, I have no conflicts.
 

A:Malwarebytes 3 and Zemana AntiLogger - Any conflicts?

There is no reason to run both of them with Real-time protection on.
I would choose Zemana with Pandora enabled than Malwarebytes, Malwarebytes performance/security has been declining the past year.

A:malwarebytes antimalware or zemana anti malware?

As far as I know they are both very good and trustworthy programs. They both have free and Premium versions which offer additional features and protection against malware infection. If using only as a stand-alone scanner you could run both (not at the same time of course).I personally have never used Zemana so I cannot attest to it's effectiveness other than what I have read.I can tell you that some of the employees involved with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware product development, research and technical support are well known security experts who have volunteered their personal time to assist victims of malware infection long before their program was created. They still stay personally involved with helping victims on Internet forum boards as well as provide individual support services to users of their products. This means they are personally tuned into the day to day analysis of active malware and any reported issues with their software so they are able to respond quickly to them.No amount of money can buy such dedication and support.BTW...Bleeping Computer hosts both programs in our download section so that should tell you something since we do not host ineffective products.

Hi!This is my first post and I really appreciate bleeping computer team for providing such a wonderful service to people in need. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate.

I run regular scans (both Norton and Avast), all of which almost never detect any infection and assure that my system is clean.Yesterday I installed Malwarebytes Anti Malware just to be sure that my computer doesn't have any infection. It was constantly (every 2-3 seconds) blocking outgoing connections from BitComet to different IPs located in China. Believing that the problem is in BitComet, I started utorrent, and the result was same for it as well, MBAM blocked outbound connections, albeit at a lower frequency. Then it blocked an inbound connection from svchost.exe. I just quit both the torrent clients and the notifications stopped. I then quit MBAB.I started Malwarebytes scan and while it was still running, it showed two infections. During the scan itself a blue screen came and my windows crashed. Ignoring it, after a while I again started the scan and the same thing happened.

I came to this website as i'm having a issue with malwares.

Earlier this morning, i started to have problems when using Microsoft Edge, the browser keep open another unknown links when i click.

So i searched online and then installed Malwarebytes, the ran the update and the scan, the scan detected some problems so I removed it, then i restarted my computer.

I thought the stuff in the quarantine are not good for my computer so for some reason i deleted the files in the quarantine too!

After that i opened MS Edge to check and now it can't even open! It just close immediately after the window pops up.

Now i have no idea what to do, i haven't done anything to my computer since then. Please help

Oh and i also had a problem started to have when i tried to open the mail app in my windows 10. The app can't sync with my gmail account. When i tried to sync it says the error is: 0x80040154
I found this error when i tried to activate my account to get to this forum, so i don't know if the error occurs after or before i ran the scan with malwarebytes.

Thank you

I've scanned this computer with AVG Free, Spybot S&D, AdAware free version, Trend Micro's online scan and the new Microsoft spyware beta. All of them found trojans, except the Trend Micro scan and cleaned them. Trend didn't find anything.
Every morning when she turns the computer on AVG runs and finds a couple of viruses, always something different and always in the IE temp files.
I booted into command prompt Safe mode and deleted the IE cache and for that day AVG didn't find any more viruses when it ran but the next morning it found more.
The computer is running slower and slower all the time and every time it gets on the net AVG mail scanner shows that is is constantly scanning outgoing email messages even when she isn't sending anything anything and Outlook Express isn't running. She's on a slow dial up so the outgoing messages really suck up her bandwidth.

Hey guys,I've never had a firewall until recently when I came across this site.I use the Sygate Personal Firewall (free) and when I woke up this morning, I saw the following in my log viewer.http://www.circlenoir.com/forums/showthrea...p=5311#post5311Is there anything I need to do or is there nothing to worry about?Thanks!

A:Firewall Detected My Computer Being Scanned

Port scans are normal and should not be a cause to worry, especially with a firewall such as Sygate, since the scan will not even detect your computer's existence (Sygate blocked it).
If you are curious, you can have Sygate back scan to trace the scan to the originator, and then use the "whois" function to tell you who was doing the scan.
Cheers,
John

i ran a multiple scans using spyware programs and anti-virus programs. they all said no immediate threats were found. however, my computer is still running very slow compared to it's usual speed. even my internet connection is slow. i called the company, they sent a technician to check the connection. they said that the connection should be just fine. so i'm worried that there might be some lingering spyware/malware running in the background, ones that weren't able to be detected by my spyware programs.

Hi realresults13,
 
Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.
 rKill.exe: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/
Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
Do not reboot until instructed.
If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
After the tool has finished running, a text file named Rkill.txt should be located on the desktop. Please copy and paste the contents into your next reply.

A:How to send scanned questionnaire to computer for completion?

Not easily.

Most scanners have OCR software with them (optical character recognition) that has a go at converting scanned images to editable text but they are usually not that good with forms.

Scanning as an "image" (a picture of the form) would allow someone with average image editing software abilities to overlay text on the image, but its not all that easy.

Hi all!
 
Nowadays, protection against ransomware is more important than ever before, as this is the malware authors' most profitable way to make revenue.
 
As such, more and more malware authors create ransomware, and necessarily, the threat landscape is constantly shifting.
 
So, in order to combat this, several small and / or less-known security software companies have created stand-alone anti-ransomware tools.
 
Nonetheless, the big and well-known Emsisoft, Malwarebytes and Zemana have also implemented anti-ransomware protection modules in their respective security solutions.
 
And hence, my question is as follows;
 Will Emsisoft, Malwarebytes & Zemana make stand-alone anti-ransomware obsolete?
 
Thank you very much in advance!

My laptop started lagging seriously a week ago. My guess is that it came with a bad videofile (zipped) downloaded by utorrent from isohunt.com. Deleted a lot of programs and unnecessary files since, ran all scans possible, defragmented, etc. Removed some kind of trojan with ad-aware, but the problem remains. Have removed all programs from strtup in msconfig. The problem remains. Every time i start an application or process (or even move the cursor quickly across the screen), the cpu jumps to 95-100% and everything is extremely slow.

Hello.

I think my computer is very screwed. Whenever I do a scan with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware. It always shows up with some sort of virus or spyware in my regkey. Some of the viruses shown are in the topic description.

My computer used to have a virus where the background changed into a huge warning sign and said I had a malicious spyware. But after a scan with Malwarebyte's anti-malware it got rid of it. But it appears it did not get rid of all traces of the virus.
Before the scan i used spybot search and destroy and it found one trace of virtumode.dll

I just did another scan of MBAM and it shows viruses. Going to Clean it up now. But is there a way to permanently get rid of the Vundo virus? Thanks.

I have Windows 10 with UAC enabled on a limited account with a password, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro, Hitman free, Zemana AntiMalware free, SUMo update checker free, Unchecky, Macrium Reflect for images, and Firefox 64 bit 44.0.2 with accept third party cookies never set.

Sandboxie Pro is installed but I only use it to test different applications at times to not clutter my windows. I don't want to use it in my browser or other apps because I have to go through hoops to update apps somethings.
 

A:Is Zemana AntiMalware Pro, Hitman Pro or Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit required in this kind of setup?

Sorry I meant to say Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Pro as well in title.

Hi, are they enough or should I get more software to make my computer more secure so that I don't get a virus. I have an i7 4790k, 950 Pro 512GB Nvme, 32GB ram so I can spare system resources for this. Also would Bitdefender and emsisoft play nicely together or is that a bad idea? Thanks!

A:Is Bitdefender + MalwareBytes Enough?

BitDefender is compatible with Malwarebytes, although I've heard of cases involving BD not playing nice with Malwarebytes. Those are usually resolved quickly with a reinstall.Emsisoft uses the BitDefender engine together with the inhouse engine, so using both together is a bit redundant IMO.Emsisoft can replace Malwarebytes in terms of antimalware as well, so you do not need to have Malwarebytes if you use Emsisoft (although having a backup is nice though).
