However, one keeps getting picked up by MBAM - something called "PUP.Bitminer." Its location is c:\Windows\assembly\temp\kwrd.dll. MBAM will says it has quarantined and deleted it, but it shows up every time I scan. I am still having the same issue; the laptop becomes unusable after about 20 minutes and I have to manually shut it off. Also, on a couple of occasions it has redirected Google searches, leading my to have to clean off the stuff that it redirects me to. Everything seems to work fine in safe mode, though I still have to watch out for redirects if I leave networking on. MBAM is the only program that even identifies it.
I've seen this problem in a few posts at the MBAM forums, and helpers told people to run ComboFix among other things. However, I know it's a dangerous tool and don't want to use it without being told to by someone who knows what they're doing. I can post DDS logs and such if needed.
Help would be GREATLY appreciated; I have to take an online exam this week and would much prefer to use this laptop. Thanks.
