This all happened within the last few days when retrieved my hacked Minecraft account back. Long story short: got it back, changed email and pass for my account and by the next day my email was hacked into along with a reply from Minecraft being read, which resulted in the loss of my account again.
I am currently running Windows 10 with (I believe) the most recent updates.
I ran a scan on Windows defender, nothing was found, so I decided to kick it up a notch and tried scanning with SpyBot Search and Destroy, which worked, however it paused once it got to a file named: Fraud.UPSInvoice. I decided to Google the file and it's looking like it's linked with a Trojan horse. I am currently having trouble manually deleting this, but I will post another topic about that. So I did some more research and found out it could be rooted, which lead me to download Malwarebytes Anti Rootkit, I started the scan at approximately 9:00PM -CST last night, it is currently 6:30PM and the scan is still running. The scan is not frozen, it's still scanning, but I think it might be a bit slower than it was going last night. It's stuck in my temp folder, the folder it's been scanning is:
And the imageio numbers are changing, but I don't really know what they mean. I checked the status of it when I woke up this morning, it was scanning in the same directory, along with the same imageio but with different numbers...I tried looking this up on Google and the keywords "taking a long time to scan" only brought up people who were running scans for 8 hours at most. It's been almost 24 hours since I started the scan.
What should I do? Should I let the scan keep running? Or is there anything else I can do to figure it out. Thanks fir any help!
EDIT: I went to the file location specified and I found that there are roughly 295,000 "imageio" files, sitting at about 1KB each..Each one takes roughly 10 seconds to get to the next file...So...We're looking at a LONG wait time for these..Is it worth it to scan them all? Or should I just cancel my scan, delete them then re-scan? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
