[Closed] Unknown program tries to execute on restart - System Check related maybe

  1. Hi guys,

    My mom accidentally opened a wrong e-mail which I am guessing gave her
    system check. It was giving some ridiculous warnings like hard drive rotational speed too low or some crap so I figured it was a fake virus checker program. I googled it and ended up using the tutorial on bleepingcomputer to try to remove it.

    I had to use rkill and ran malwarebytes. After a full scan, I clicked to remove all the malicious files. Then I used unhide and got all my icons back. I thought it was over with, but upon restarting the laptop, I get a popup asking to run an unknown program. This happens every time I restart the laptop. If x out the popup it seems i can run the pc normally, but I have a bad feeling about it.

    Here is the message I get

    I ran malwarebytes again and it did not detect System Check. Any idea what this is?

    I can't seem to delete this topic, but I think the issue is resolved. I was checking my virus scan logs and it seems they were getting interrupted. It found some hijack start menu thing. Sorry about that.
