Virtool:js/obfuscator Virus

  1. Hello,

    Yesterday evening my ethernet started disconnecting approximately two times per hour.
    This made me suspicious and started a malwarebyte scan which found nothing and a Microsoft Security essentials scan which found virtool:js/obfuscator, deleted it. But the disconnecting keeps happening

    I've been looking online for any solutions but I end up finding people trying to sell me a service for deleting it.

    Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks,

    Jan
