my boyfriends computer has something called conime.exe in the startup. We looked it up and it can be part of a bfghost virus? I tried the "how to remove these infections manually" and couldn't find it with autoruns...also tried Malware bytes and microsoft security essentials as well as registry fix. unsure what else to do.

thanks.

Hello,

Conime.exe is a legitimate Windows file and should not be removed. You can find a bit more information here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/filedb/conime.exe-711.html

Do you have any problem with your computer that makes you think it is infected?

regards, Elise

One of the other posts on this forum say its malicious. The computer is slow and the sound constantly skips when more than two prpgrams open which started just over a week ago.

A file with this name can be malicious when it is located in the wrong location. Malware often uses this type of trick to make you believe a bad file is legitimate, however it is easy to spot. Just to be sure we can create a log which will show us if the file is malicious or not.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

regards, Elise
