All day long, Window’s Defender has been detecting multiple instances of the, Ransom. Win32/Nemreq.A Trojan. I have removed over 14 of them and still more are being detected. All of my systems are working and I need to be sure that Window’s Defender or the free version of Emsisoft isn’t corrupt and that my computer is free of this malware. I downloaded Rogue Killer and it found 4 files which were quarantined and finally deleted. I also ran Emsisoft several times and it detected nothing. In the past hour Windows Defender has found two more instances of this malware.
Yesterday morning I ran Emsisoft to check for malware. A window appeared asking if I wanted to learn more about ransom ware. I had seen this Emsisoft window appear many times in the past during a scan so I clicked on it. I read the article about ransom ware. The Emsisoft window popped up informing me that it had detected nothing. I turned off the computer. Later when I turned on my computer I began receiving messages from Windows Defender, WD, telling me that it had detected malware and was removing it to quarantine. I opened WD and was surprised to discover the same Trojan that I read about earlier in the day. I removed six instances of that Trojan. I then began receiving notices from Emsisoft informing me that it couldn't connect to the internet. After clicking that window off (because there was nothing wrong with my internet connection) WD picked up seven more Trojans. This has been going on all day long. Two more alerts from WD just appeared.
My computer is an HP notebook running Windows 10 Pro, with Chrome as my Browser and Google as my search provider.
