Hello!

 

A week or so ago now, I accidentally downloaded a file that started installing bloatware. I managed to get all of the files removed, along with the one that had started downloading everything. Now all the scans I've done show up clean, however I know this is not the case. On startup, after a few minutes loading, CMD prompt opens for a split second, and disappears too quickly to read. I managed to record with my phone to capture what it says, and it said as follows:

"BITSAdmin is deprecated and is not guaranteed to be available in future versions of Windows.
Administrative tools for the BITS service are now provided by BITS PowerShell cmdlets."

 

Two CMD prompts open simultaneously, but they overlap, and the one in the forefront is all I get to see, which is the above text.

 

It wasn't doing this before I had downloaded that virus/file.

 

I had another post, but the fellow helping me directed me to post another here. Here is that topic; https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/636923/bitsadmin-opening-cmd-prompt-on-startup-and-every-hour-or-so-afterward/

 

Attached are my logs.

Looks that a background program is attempting to run the BITSAdmin command.

 

Open FRST.

 

Type the following in the edit box on FRST, after "Search:".

BITSAdmin

It then should look like:

Search: BITSAdmin

Click Search Registry button and post the log (Search.txt) it will produce.

Download the enclosed file. Save it in the same location FRST is saved. Open FRST and click on the Fix button.

 

The tool will make a log in the same location FRST is saved (Fixlog.txt), Please post it to your reply.

 

Then test the computer and let me know if that command window still appears.
