Hi,

 

Few hours ago I got infected with the Timeserver Bitcoin miner and I need some help getting my PC back to normal again.

 

Because I was 100% sure I was infected with it ( C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Time, it was all there ) I tried some things to get rid of it. This including using Combofix and running the CFScript with it together. 

 

The folder is no longer there and both my GPU and CPU-usage are fairly low, but when I try to watch a movie, play games or even do small things in windows I notice my computer has trouble loading things at a normal speed. Is there something I missed? Is the virus still out there? It has to be something with my GPU.

 

Thanks alot! 

 

 

Edit: Reinstalling the newest display driver helped the problem. It probably bugged out after the removal attempt. So everything is fine now as far as I can see. But is there a way, like a last scan I can do to be 100% sure there are no more remaining files of the Bitcoin miner?

Please download and run this DDS Scanning Tool. Nothing will be deleted. It will just give me some additional information about your system.

Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links, if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.

1: DDS.scr (Not recommended if you use Chrome to download this .scr file. Use the other options.)
2: DDS.pif
3: DDS.COM

Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
A small box will open, with an explanation 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.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.

Please just paste the contents of the DDS.txt log in your next post. DO NOT attach the log.
