I use a mac & this winbox is rarely used, however the purpose is to transfer files using my Nokia e5 & the suite, connecting the Phone to the Mac (which I actually don't!) so thats where it all went wrong! & then to winbox, files actually crept into the winbox & renamed every folder with a lots of spaces & then.exe extension
Attached is the screenshot <renamed folders>
The infection has spread on to the phone's memory card (the reason of the transfer)
I updated malware bytes & ran a fullscan, found 88 infections, quarantined & rebooted, same issue again.
I was not able to safeboot, updated malwarebytes again, ran a reg fix & then safeboot worked, ran a full scan on all partitions & rebooted, same issue. (my phone's memory card could not be scanned & is still infected)
One of the other issues the attack was creating was eating up space on C:/ I had kbs left! which is now not the case, Supposedly malwarebytes scan cleared that space from spurious files.
Thanks in advance
I had installed some toolbar on windows, which could have been one of the reasons too.
Also, MSconfig is not working, as in the app is being auto closed in seconds from being launched.
I had tried re-enable v2 portable before the scan & it worked, it is not launching now, Will try safeboot & try to re-enable msconfig.
