I'd very grateful if you helped me with this matter. I've had recently a problem with maleware that I can't remove using Malewarebytes and anti-virus software. The maleware seems to be multiplying in Temp files while scanning therefore I belive it's hard for any anti-virus software to remove it. (I've been trying to fix it with Bitdefender and later with Kaspersky with no result.) The scanning and solving the problem by any anti- software is kind of stuck when it reaches C:\Windows\Temp\... folder.


Some of the things that are found by the software: Trojan.Win32.Generic , TUTO4PC and Coin Miner. If it's possible, please post me steps I have to follow in order to free my computer from all kinds of maleware.
