Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and this is my first post. For a brief background, I'd like you all to know that I am not a very computer-savvy person and the first signs of malware/threats send me into a panic mode.
So here's the issue with my laptop. My laptop runs on Windows 10. This morning, I got a notification from Windows Defender that read "Found some malware. Windows Defender is removing it.". I thus opened Windows Defender, and found that in the History tab, under "All detected items" it showed me "Trojan:Win32/Dynamer!ac". I deleted it by clicking on "Remove all". The threat was shown to be removed. To check once again, I restarted my laptop. To my surprise, I received the same Windows Defender notification again, with the Trojan virus still intact. I tried to remove and restart a few more times, but the notification persisted each time my laptop restarted. I concluded that this was a recurring issue, so I googled to figure out ways to remove this virus completely. I stumbled upon a link which asked me to clean up using the following steps:
1. Run AdwCleaner and remove threats; reboot
2. Run MalwareBytes and remove malware; reboot if needed
3. Run Hitman Pro to remove any further undetected threats
I followed these steps. At every stage, the respective program displayed that the necessary action had been taken. Now, to verify that the virus had indeed gone, I ran AdwCleaner again. It showed me 4 registry threats. (Please see attached screenshot for the details of these threats). These 4 threats are constantly detected by AdwCleaner. Could someone please tell me if these are harmful and guide me with the required steps to remove them?
I also ran MalwareBytes again and it did not detect any threat. However, on running Hitman Pro again, it displayed a Malware by the name of "SoundProvider.exe". Also, Windows Defender Quick Scan did not report any threat. Is my laptop still infected? How do I verify this?
I am sorry if this post is too lengthy, but my only intention was to not miss out anything important. Any help would be much appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
