While my brother was playing games on our computer, avast started having virus popups. He says that these popups included warnings about trojans and malware, but I have yet to double check if the machine is indeed infected. I would like to know if antibanbrowser.exe is malware or not as google searches haven't equated to much. I am aware that antiban software is normally used to void bans in video games, but this program was called antibanbrowser. I plan on running a full system scan and using linux to try and find anything that could be hiding.

And yes, the computer in question does indeed run windows 7.

Edit: I forgot that the computer in question was recently up/downgraded to Windows 10 (no offense). Can a moderator move this thread for me?

Thanks in advance~

Please run the ESET OnlineScan

This scan takes quite a long time to run, so be prepared to allow this to run
till it is completed.

***Please note. If you run this scan using Internet Explorer you won't need
to download the Eset Smartinstaller.***

ESET Online Scanner

  • Click here to download the installer for ESET Online Scanner and save it to your Desktop.
  • Disable all your antivirus and antimalware software - see how to do that
    here
    .
  • Right click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe and select Run as Administrator.
  • Place a checkmark in YES, I accept the Terms of Use, then click Start. Wait for ESET Online Scanner to load its components.
  • Select Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications.
  • Click Advanced Settings, then place a checkmark in the following:
    • Remove found threats
    • Scan archives
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • Click Start to begin scanning.
  • ESET Online Scanner will start downloading signatures and scan. Please be patient, as this scan can take quite some time.
  • If threats are found click on Save to text file in Documents.
  • Open Documents, find the report, copy and paste it in your topic.

 

Please run TDSSKiller.
 
Please download TDSSKiller from here and save it to your Desktop.

The log for the TDSSKiller can be very long.  If you go to the bottom of the log to where you find Scan finished you will see the results of the scan.  If it shows Detected object count: 0 and Actual detected object count: 0, this means that nothing malicious was found and you will not need to post the log.
 
1.  Doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then click on Change parameters.

2.  Check Loaded Modules, Verify Driver Digital Signature, and Detect TDLFS file system.

Please copy the TDSSKiller.[Version]_[Date]_[Time]_log.txt file found in your root directory (typically c:\) and paste it into your next reply.

I have fixed this issue by booting into Linux. Is there any way to close this thread?

Threads usually don't get closed.  This is so that others can add suggestions or ask questions about how a problem was resolved.  Topics that get closed here are usually the result of a member posting more than one topic on the same subject, multiple topics on the same subject usually will have all but one topic closed to keep things from causing confusion.  This is just a "for instance", there are other reasons as well.

 

Another reason we don't close topics is the possibility that a member will believe their problem has been resolved only to discover later that this was not the case and need further assistance.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
