Strange item showing up in task manager

Today my computer is acting a bit odd.  I ran spybot and it found a few things and deleted them. Since then, I checked task manager and find a few of these: oYcdUH.exe and oYcdUH.com

 

I searched the net and cannot find anything for these.  I click them and end process button and they go away for a while but then reappear later.  I'm also hearing alot of clicking sounds coming through the speakers only when these appear on the task list. It sounds possibly like a computer sound that is indicating something is happening in the background but can't figure out what it's doing. I don't see any clicking wavs like this in the sounds for windows.

 

In addition, I'm looking for the best software to scan to see if I do have something on here. Not sure if it might be adware, malware, spyware, virus or ??? What to start with?

 

 

Thanks,

 

Bob

Do you have an anti virus app installed and resident? If not, I'm sure that's part of your problem. If you do, run a full scan with that. You can also download and run a scan with MalwareBytes.

Hi, I ran the malwarebytes scan and it found 19 items. The oYcdUH mentioned above was malware. It's funny that nothing about this turned up in my search on the net. ??

 

Well, computer seems alot better now.

 

Thanks,

 

Bob

You're welcome. If you don't have an anti virus app installed and resident you should get one now.

Hello it was definitely malware .
A downloader and possibly a Backdoor.

VirusTotal results.
https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/2a943d5c1756779e1165ad7475d9ad540a660af23273f8da291a87ba048f30e0/analysis/

It communicates with a remote server to receive data that instructs the trojan to visit other websites. The trojan may also launch a web browser and display out-of-context advertisements on an affected computer.

I would still run these.

Download TDSSKiller and save it to your desktop.
  • Extract (unzip) its contents to your desktop.
  • Open the TDSSKiller folder and doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then on Start Scan.
  • If an infected file is detected, the default action will be Cure, click on Continue.
  • If a suspicious file is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue.
  • It may ask you to reboot the computer to complete the process. Click on Reboot Now.
  • If no reboot is require, click on Report. A log file should appear. Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.
  • If a reboot is required, the report can also be found in your root directory (usually C:\ folder) in the form of TDSSKiller_xxxx_log.txt. Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.
  • .
    .
    .
    ADW Cleaner

    Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin to scan your computer like it did before.
  • After the scan has finished...
    <-insert any special instructions here for what to uncheck OR remove this line if there are none->
  • This time click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S#].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.
  • .
    .
    .

    thisisujrt.gif Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
  • Last run ESET.
  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the esetonlinebtn.png button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu.png icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
  • Scan potentially unwanted applications
  • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
  • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
  • NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.

You're welcome but the ESET looks for different things. May be worth the 2 hours to run it
