Potential Virus

Recommended Posts

girly   

My hard drive runs constantly and I wondered if I had a virus somewhere. I have done various scans with PC Matic, Malaware Bytes, AVG, and on line Trend House Call. I also have Microsoft Security Essentials switched to real time protection.

 

Any help appreciated.

You're going to have to give more information than that to go on.

Any malware found?

Your System specifications?

When did this start happening?

 

What do you mean by this? " I also have Microsoft Security Essentials switched to real time protection"

Are you running another Antivirus along with MSE?

I have Windows 7 32 bit

AMD Penom IIx2 550 Processor

3 GB Ram

 

MSE has the option to turn off real time protection and no malware has been found on any scans.

 

This has been happening for about 2 weeks.

The computer will not sleep either. I have it set to sleep after 5 mins when not using it but display turns off but HD doesn't and then display comes back on.

e

I have disabled everything in power management which wakes up PC and network adaptor in Device Manager but makes no difference.

 

I thought a virus maybe causing the problem. I am not using another anti virus program apart from MSE and have even turned it off to see if problem continues which it does.

Let's see if Eset shows any signs of malware.

 

  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.

    ESET OnlineScan

  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
