Hello and good morning,


My computer has had a problem for the last few days. When I start my computer, a cmd.exe starts and a windows startup client.


The startup client is weirdly enough to "complete", it is like a white window that is minimized, if you maximize it it shows only "%PNG".


This is reported by AVAST, but refers to mqsvc.exe as the source of the problem, mqsvc is also listed in auto start for some reason and even if the autostart is deactivated, it launches on startup.


I used Spybot, Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, tdsskiller, roguekiller and such.


It still doesn't change anything, also I read up on mqsvc and it seems it is mostly harmless... I am stumped right now.


Maybe someone has an idea?


With highest regards, redscores
