Windows 7: I think I have an undetected virus.

I think I have an undetected virus.

results= not happy

While in opera computer starts going hay wire. Mouse gets jumpy with an hour glass popping up and is suddenly unresponsive for a few nanoseconds.

NOT NORMAL! Epic fail when gaming!

First symptoms: unresponsive mouse during game. Screen blackouts during game. Dunno if it was dropping frames before or what. I have never seen that before. The screen would just flicker black for a few seconds.

Unusual task manager trigger; It stops doing whatever it is doing when task manager is opened.

I know there is a site, but I do not remember where. I used to download a program and it listed processes to them and they could see things that were wrong.

Wait, I just remembered that the iobit 360 program does that.

BRB; ...

might be solved

iobit 360 finds 6 threats during scan. Hopefully it finds all of them.

It has been so long since I've had a virus I forgot about it while testing AVG.

Hope this is helpful to someone anyways.

Hi, HellionDarklord.

Based on IOBit's past practices, I wouldn't run it on my computer. See the following for additional information:
-- IOBit Steals Malwarebytes' Intellectual Property
-- IOBitís Denial of Theft Unconvincing
-- IOBit Theft Conclusion

If your computer has not returned to normal, I suggest a scan with MBAM: Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, be sure Quick scan is selected, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, EXCEPT items in System Restore as shown in this sample:
  • Click Remove Selected.

the Process explorer seems a nice bit of software at first glance. Why does windows 7 not come with this program natively?
