Hello, im new and i found something in my pc :thumbsup:
McAfee expired like 1 month after i purchased my pc, so i knew there was something wrong, so I ran Pc Doctor (trial) and found some trojans that looked like this:

HKLM\system\ControlSet001\Services\mcupdmgr.exe
And a bunch of other HKML files as well.

I searched for that here and found this link
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/M...R.EXE-9889.html

the thing is im a complete moron and cant find how to either download the file or fix it myself

Ran Mcafee Virtual Techinician and while it found out there was something odd it ran for a while, turned off/on my pc but was unable to fix it.

I apologize if this has been asked before, but i couldnt find the thread...

so if anyone helps me i will appreciate it a lot! Thx

Welcome to BC :thumbsup:

I suggest you follow the directions in this guide. Then create an HJT log, you will find the directions in the guide.

Create a new topic in this forum, not here and give it a good descriptive title. Briefly summarize what the problems are, what you have done to try to solve it, and what worked and didn't work and paste in your HJT log.

After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
