Hi, there. I've been having trouble with this nasty virus and also a few others. Quite a few of the same processes that all go by the name, 'vmxclient.exe' are constantly eating away at my computers performance and I am pretty sure that those viruses aren't the only ones. There's also a malicious process called, 'winscr.exe' that won't stop running and also multiple shady start up services that I CANNOT disable. Aka, 'svcvmx.exe' which is controlling the vmxclient.exes and also that 'Cpx' service which I cannot disable either. Now, I know that this may require me to access Advanced Startup Options but I do NOT have access to another clean computer at all and I do NOT have an installation disk. I am using Windows 10, by the way.
I installed Malwarebytes but every time I run the application, it tells me 'the parameter is incorrect' no matter what I do. This same error seemed to pop up for a couple other anti-viruses too. I'm pretty sure this has something to do with all this nasty adware in my computer. Also tried running the latest version of Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit but it starts to completely freeze once it's scanned over 2,000 malware and it will not respond for literally almost an hour until I close it. Maybe I should just let it run for as long as it has to? I'm not sure. But for some reason, whenever I boot into safe mode, none of these annoying processes occur yet I am still unable to use Malwarebytes even with internet.
Thank you for taking the time to listen. I look forward to squashing these annoying bugs.
