Malwarebytes started going crazy on the 9th over files in core system folders.
Some examples of these files:
Finding the files:
These files were created on the system on Tuesday, June 9, 2015. This was the same day I installed the game engine Unity editor and this was how I found these files. When I tried to launch the editor it would immediately crash. This was when I had Malwarebytes closed and not running. I uninstalled Unity multiple times until one time I launched Unity with Malwarebytes open and multiple notifications came up saying Malwarebytes has blocked C:\Windows\System32\Aihuauzl.dll as a HijackBoot. This specific file kept appearing. When I checked my folders I found other files with this Aihuauzl name.
Attempting to Fix:
Everything works fine on my PC, except the ability to open Unity without Malwarebytes open and blocking those files. I also can't play Arma 2 online because BattleEye (their anticheat and security) blocks the C:\Windows\System32\Aihuauzl.dll from running. After realizing this I changed the filetype of the Aihuauzl.dlls so I could remove them. After I removed them and restarted my computer I could not access the internet at all. Sometimes if I am not running Malwarebytes I can't use the internet as well. WIth malwarebytes open however, I am endlessly spammed with this blocking notification. I have tried adding exclusions to the files which helped nothing at all. With exclusions Unity and Arma behave in the same way.
I have ran:
I would like to know:
Just what this thing really is. I can find nothing on google or history/information on who made these .dlls and where they came from. I installed Unity from the official website and it works fine with Malwarebytes open. This has really stumped me. I just want to know what it is and I will answer any questions that will help.
Edit: Just now I could not connect to Steam. As soon as I clicked login, Malwarebytes blocked C:\Windows\System32\Aihuauzl.dll. I could not connect to Steam until closing out of Malwarebytes.
