Hello Bleepingcomputer,


I am working on this PC for this company, I've seen multiple instances of this same type of virus. I've uploaded it to Virustotal in the past and it's always came up clean. It seems harmless as it's just foldernames that Malwarebytes is catching but there are some just plain weird looking files that may be a for a legacy application they all use. See below for a screenshot of the files and folder paths:




Unfortunately, I no longer have access to the machine but I've been able to get the .quar files from Malwarebytes. I'm not sure how to extract them to re-upload to virustotal.


I'm just wondering if anyone has seen these folder paths before and/or could validate my concerns.


I know the guy had multiple toolbars installed on there but sometimes I've done a scan and the only thing that shows up on it is those folder paths.

Please let me know what you guys think.

Were all those items deleted/ quarantined by MBAM? MBAM is a great program but you need to use others, too.

Suggest using the programs below if you get access to the computer. Of course, if you will never have access what is the purpose of

going further to find what some file is?

Never any disrespect intended. When you left that computer, are you sure it was clean?
