This aggravating worm or virus calls itself JenMiramkan 2216. It runs a random .exe program and eats up a lot of memory and speed on my laptop. I have run MalwareBytes and CC cleaner several times at both find 'objects" remove them. A few minutes later the same issue occurs. I can watch it appear and start eating up memory when I watch Task manager and look at active processes.   I can end the process and few seconds later it comes back with a new exe. suffix and off to the races again.
 
Any ideas on how to get rid of it?

Hello this appears to be a virus variant of  Win32/Kryptik.BVJB.
 
Lets run this first...
 
Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
  • Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.
    Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

    ESET.

Somehow I was able to get rid of it with multiple runs of the Malware Bytes. I just kept running it over and over and it finally got it. Sort of like peeling the layers of an onion I guess.

 

I also went into my uninstall programs and uninstalled everyhting that was installed in the past few days. it seems to be gone now.
