Hello!

 

Just recently i scanned my computer with Spybot Search and Destroy, and found a trojan "DC3_FEXEC", i removed and rebooted my computer, i opened the task manager and found a process named 'Test.exe' and he disappeared very quickly. I ran ADware cleaner, Combofix (probably a mistake), Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, and it didn't found anything. But everytime i reboot and open the task manager it's there, but it disappears so fast that i can't click on it.

 

This viruses are in my new Hard Drive that a friend gave me, i formatted both partitions except the one that said ''System Reserved''.

 

If anyone could help i would be very grateful. Sorry if it's confusing, english is not my native language.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

 

EDIT:

 

Hey, i solved (i hope), apparently it was something from spybot, i ran in safe mode and used the ''autoruns'' application and the description it said ''test.exe - Makes sure Spybot 2 is there on Windows 10.''

I deleted it and now it's gone. I tried removing the topic but i don't think i can. Sorry if i wasted anyone's time.

Hi there,

Just to drop by a piece of advice - Spybot Search & Destroy is no longer recommended as its performance is very poor, and the TeaTimer function interferes with malware removal.

Two better alternatives for anti-malware software are Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Both have excellent track records and offer real time protection if upgraded to paid version, and can be used alongside existing antivirus software.
