Hello Ashley Riot
Sure you can ask for help
That file itself does not look like malware, though I can't tell from just a file name.
Please state the full path to the file. For example:
C:\Documents and settings\user\my documents\02 Robin Thicke - A Beautiful World.mp3.
In the meantime, let's get a scan off.Download and run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware
If you already have MBAM installed, simply update and run a quick scan.
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
setup and to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2
Refer to the steps given here
on installing MalwareBytes, running the scan, and saving the log file (not on using File Assasin).
- If you have trouble updating, try the other mirror download site.
- Should the computer in question not be able update using the normal method download the update file from here, using another machine if needed. Simply double click the file to install the updates.
- If MalwareBytes asks to reboot to remove certain items, do so right away.
Please include the scan logfile in your next reply.Peer-to-Peer Programs Warning
These programs allow to share files between users as the name(s) suggest. In today's world cyber crime
has come to an enormous dimension and any means is used to infect personal computers to make use of their stored data or machine power for further propagation of the malware files. A popular means is the use of file-sharing tools as a tremendous amount of prospective victims can be reached through it.
It is therefore possible to be infected by downloading manipulated files via peer-to-peer tools and thus suggested to be used with intense care. Some further readings on this subject, along the included links, are as follows: File-Sharing, otherwise known as Peer To Peer
and Risks of File-Sharing Technology
It is also important to note that sharing entertainment files and proprietary software
infringes the copyright laws in many countries over the world and you are putting yourself at risk of being indicted through organizations watching over the rights of the authors of such files (i.e. the RIAA
for music files, or the MPAA
for movie files in the USA) or the authors of the files themselves.
Naturally there are also legal ways to use these services, such as downloading Linux distributions or office suites such as "Open Office."
