Hi guys, I think I have some malware on my pc. I am getting random screenshots of my screen (ingame or not) and its posting them in AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsFeedback_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\{5572e16e-c8e9-48ed-bfa5-d57f27c38141}.

 

I recently made the jump to Windows 10 and constantly its been acting odd. I am probably paranoid but I dont remember taking screenshots and I am pretty sure id remember putting them in such a niche folder. Another thing is I logged onto my PC this morning and my wifi was turned off mysteriously. Id be appreciative of any help.

Hi shark

I'm suspecting a hardware issue. Can you hook uo another keyboard and see if that solves it. We can still also scan.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Hi shark

I scanned with Malwarebytes, Bitdefender and SuperAntiSpyware and it all came up negative. However I did come across this

Either I accidentally activated feedback by mistake or its been taking pictures of my screen. This would explain why its showing up in feedback. I am not gonna jump the boat and scream "corporate consipiracy!!!!1!" but this is still very creepy.

 

Thanks for responding, this was my bad I guess.

My cat once walked across my keyboard and started a program.
Glad to hear its OK.

If you want to run a deep scan

cvMlKv6.pngESET Online Scanner
  • Click here to download the installer for ESET Online Scanner and save it to your Desktop.
  • Disable all your antivirus and antimalware software - see how to do that here.
  • Right click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe and select Run as Administrator.
  • Place a checkmark in YES, I accept the Terms of Use, then click Start. Wait for ESET Online Scanner to load its components.
  • Select Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications.
  • Click Advanced Settings, then place a checkmark in the following:
    • Remove found threats
    • Scan archives
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • Click Start to begin scanning.
  • ESET Online Scanner will start downloading signatures and scan. Please be patient, as this scan can take quite some time.
  • When the scan is done, click List threats (only available if ESET Online Scanner found something).
  • Click Export, then save the file to your desktop.
  • Click Back, then Finish to exit ESET Online Scanner.
