New virus causing Win 10 to reboot before the A/V is finished

2018-10-10, 4:32 AM

Running Win 10 on this M72e Ivy PC.   Using ESET online scanner it has found a 'varient of some trojan.   Using full Panda A/V, it finds nothing.  The last two scans of ESET show it found one item, then Windows flashes a blue screen saying it must reboot.   Nothing in notifications as to why.   I guess I am looking for another free scanner to try to clean this up.

Hello,

 

Do you recall exactly what the ESET Online Scanner said it found, and in what file?

Because it reboot, didn't catch it. I d/l Malwarebytes (I see it still doesn't play well with other programs and found 2 items. I grabbed the 30 day trial of ES/ET and it came up clean. No other problems now. I guess it is a Windows problem, close a video and it reopens. Open a program and it opens 5-10 times. still checking other things.

No browser open, I clicked on ES/ET short scanner and it filled the lower task bar.   fed up, I hit reboot,  orange screen says 64 apps open, they all closed and reboot fine.    2 minutes later, clean reboot.    so this is typical of a program screwing up.   ideas?

Hello,

 

It sounds like the system may have been under an unusual amount of load, but that's not necessarily indicative of malware.  Windows Updates can cause that behavior when they are applied, for example, as can file search indexing when Windows is initially installed or upgraded.

 

I would suggest letting the system run overnight in case there is some kind of system-intensive process that needs to finish, and then check on its behavior the following day to see if system response times are back to normal.

 

Regards,

I just picked up a New Modem from Charter Cable.  Hopefully that will help a lot.
