  1. Having an issue with a relentless virus that keeps showing up in

    windows/assembly/temp/kwrd.dll

    it also shows up in malwarebytes as "bitminer"

    if I remove the virus in safemode then I cannot boot up and have to restore to a previous point thus infecting the computer again

    Note that I do not have a restore disk :(




    Thank you

    There is not enough information for a removal at this point.

    If you would like us to check the system for malware, please follow the steps in the Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal thread HERE.

    NOTE: If you already have any of the scanning programs on the computer, please remove them and download the versions in these links.

    When you have finished, leave the logs for review in your next reply .
    NOTE: Logs must be pasted in the replies. Attached logs will not be reviewed.
    =======================================
    Please run these scans in Normal Mode. If there is a problem with that, let me know. Do not do a System Restore
    ====================================
    My Guidelines: please read and follow:
    • Be patient. Malware cleaning takes time and I am also working with other members while I am helping you.
    • Read my instructions carefully. If you don't understand or have a problem, ask me.
    • If you have questions, or if a program doesn't work, stop and tell me about it. Don't try to get around it yourself.
    • Follow the order of the tasks I give you. Order is crucial in cleaning process.
    • File sharing programs should be uninstalled or disabled during the cleaning process..
    • Observe these:
      [o] Don't use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you.
      [o] Don't use a Registry cleaner or make any changes in the Registry.
      [o] Don't download and install new programs- except those I give you.
    • Please let me know if there is any change in the system.

    If I don't get a reply from you in 5 days, the thread will be closed. If your problem persist, you can send a PM to reopen it.

    Sorry figured someone would have basic information on the type of malware otherwise woulda posted the scans etc.

    anyways I figured it out like I usually do (I always seem to ask questions moments before solving things... :/)

    thanks anyways

    We try hard but we're not mind readers. Since you have resolved your problem yourself, I will close the thread.
