Hi Guys, Im Jeff from the Philippines. Im just having this problem in my PC. Every time I restarted my PC a Behavior:Win32/32Powermet.B!attk always detected in my Windows Defender. I usually deleted it and it is annoying that when I restarted my PC again it always detected and quarantined in the Windows Defender. I don't know where it came from and I cannot trace it in my PC. I am worrying now because when I've searched it in the internet it says that it is a harmful virus that slows down my PC. Please help me guys with this. I would really appreciate your help. Thanks

Download and run Malwarebytes https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/dl/344//

 

It should remove it permanently, if not then update us 

 

You can also consider running JRT https://download.bleepingcomputer.com/dl/35a072b3d89261c07e86152f6b56640a/59a19a41/windows/security/security-utilities/j/junkware-removal-tool/JRT.exe

and adwcleaner https://toolslib.net/downloads/finish/1-adwcleaner/1032/get/p8dpQOJBgG2BX0J6F5jhz3im522wJO7O/

Addition to anti-malware software, you can check your installed programs and try to remove any suspicious ones. Also, do a scan with anti-virus software of your choice. A full one, that usually gets rid of annoying and useless files.
