Hello, recently my computer was attacked by a virus/trojan but I was protected by AVAST (i have terminated it using it).
I plan on cleaning up my PC to make sure it had left no damage. I ran a few Malwarebyte scans to clean up most of the files and it has (Mostly PUPs from what I remeber). Today I Ran a full scan and it has found nothing so I decided to use other programs to seek out other files,
Shortly after I installed Hitman Pro (3.7.9) and ran a scan, it has picked up a bunch of cookie trackers and a riskware titled "UpdateTask.exe" and labeled underneath it said "Adware.Deaply.D" twice with two different icons.
I labeled it as quarantine and clicked next, and the program froze shortly for me (was still able to move my cursor), I restarted my computer while it froze and now it is idle/working. I have not ran another scan on Hitman or MALWAREBYTES.
I am really clueless about this so I did some research and found a similar thread to mine:
Do I have the same problem and should I follow the same steps?
Or is UpdateTask.exe friendly? is it a toobar?
can you provide me with other cleaning programs to make sure my computer is clear and clean?
(i may not be able to respond tomorrow (28th Febuary) due to having a new PSU installed in my computer but maybe later in the day)
(I have a laptop and a PC)
I use Windows 8
