Windows Defender scanned my files

Well windows defender scanned my files and came up with two hits.

Something in a SUSE Linux 7.3 distribution (ISO).
I don't remember if I downloaded that from the web or if it was from a CD from a purchased book.

However the next infected ISO is more interesting, as it was an included disk of essential application programs that came with the Intel D975XBX board.
The virus was embedded in a Russian written Word processing app.

Re: Windows Defender scanned my files

Ran a full Defender scan and found a rogue file in Edge cache in my backup drive that was rated extreme risk. It said attacker can control when to activate it on my PC>

Re: Windows Defender scanned my files

Gotcha,

But like I said the most surprising thing for me is that it was distributed with the Intel board. I think you Sandog also had that board at one time, or perhaps it was the D975XBX2

I had both at one time. Sometimes it might be a false positive but since it was Russian it probably is legit virus.

Re: Windows Defender scanned my files

MS has a lot of support, think of all the Windows PC's reporting back to them. They are the Pro's at discovering attempts to subvert their OS. Full scan is the one to use and from time to time I do. I like how it scans every file you download as soon as it gets downloaded. Malwarebytes didn't find what Defender found.

Re: Windows Defender scanned my files

For those of you who use Windows Defender and O&O ShutUp10 you notice Defender remains available which is OK, I use it. You can go into Defender Settings manually and turn off two call backs to MS.

Also, MS must have updated something. I have Defender icon 24/7 in my SysTray and it asks to do a quick scan daily now.

Re: Windows Defender scanned my files

Years ago, scanning was a bit intrusive. It was difficult for you to use CPU intensive apps with a scan running in the background. However Processors double in speed every few years. That combined with super speedy SSD's leave me no problem running a full scan in the BG before I log into any sensitive site.

Re: Windows Defender scanned my files

Yeah I remember that, sort of like defrag, when that was happening you had to walk away. Scanning for virii is actually a good CPU workout. I can do a full scan and play a game lol.

Re: Windows Defender scanned my files

Got a Situation. Tried to download a bit torrent last night to get an old piece of software going (CoolEditPro). Now my browser is hijacked. Almost every browser episode I get a pop up page about being infected. This would occur like once a week, now it is almost every surf session. Ran MalwareBytes AdwCleaner which removed the homepage hack but still seeing too many popups. Going to reset Google browser here in a while. Any suggestions? I want to know the best virus/adware/popup blocker/etc. there is?

Re: Windows Defender scanned my files

Thanks Skully, I think I've fixed it. I also tried a restore to two days ago that I ironically had just did a manual restore and the restore wouldn't work, it was that messed up.

I have already been using AdBlock since I moved over to Chrome.

Adguard AdBlocker - Chrome Web Store

Today I ran some Russian Unhacking software but it didn't fix it. I ran AdwCleaner and I think that got it. I'm putting MalwareBytes AdwCleaner on the Start menu from now on along with my host of other utilities. I fixed the first issue myself by deleting my Chrome shortcut, it was locked into opening an untrusted site everytime I started the browser. In Chrome settings I could not change my homepage but a new shortcut fixed it where I linked directly to Chrome.exe.


I also use Windows Defender. Some things I learned were you can do an offline scan with Defender but it takes as long as a full-scan and you won't have use of Windows during the scan. You can go into Defender and delete the quarantined files to get them off the PC otherwise they just stay quarantined. AdBlock has a right click option to 'block this page' so next time I am taken to a popup page I will run this option. A lot of times I get the same popup website, especially the one that says you are infected and asks if you want to leave the page. If things are hopeless you can reset Google Chrome settings which will get rid of all non-default extensions. I almost went there. I also was looking at BitDefender but now that I am through it I think I will just keep using Windows Defender.

I search for the most popular AV and that usually generates the best value one to get. Thing is, you have a dozen companies and they all have their own encyclopedia of virii. So which is the best? The old virii is known and taken care of. You can still get a several year old virus but the antidote is ready. It is the new virii that create a problem and hopefully you aren't one of the first to get it. So, IMO it boils down to who can stay on top the quickest. That would sensibly be the company who receives the most feedback. So the more popular the software, the more submissions get generated. Windows is pretty huge with Win10 having Defender run automatically but Windows only takes care of Windows and IE. I use Google Chrome and MS probably sits back and laughs at Chrome issues lol. But, eventually all the AV software gets around to being able to kill the virus. Like I said, you don't want to be the first to get it.

Re: Windows Defender scanned my files

BTW, I got CoolEditPro going again. I used it back in College and it was a cool program. Adobe bought it and has have many new versions since then but I like the old lean version from Syntrillium, all I do is edit soundtracks by cutting out and adding stuff. I use to have the FFT normalization plugins and some others but they are gone.

I put a collage of Jethro Tull's greatest music together last night. Starts off with Aqualung.
