My full scan is telling me there is a threat from bitcoinminer.sx but it is unable to quarantine it or removal it, any help would be appriciated.
Hi i'm running latest version of Win 10, I've un-installed chrome then re-installed, cleaned out temp files, deleted all installed programs/apps that I have installed today, re-started my machine and completed a full scan and it's gone! So hopefully sorted.
Probably good to know path/destination of this item.
Then possible potential steps like:
--> to remove manually this file or 'container with this file'; if it not a critical file;
--> maybe to re-check system/browsers about addons-extension-applications as potential src for this file.
--> re-check if any suspicious websites 'in use' (kind of src for this item);
Generally, most likely it can be under cache of browser (or temporary files); Maybe not possible to remove/quarantine it - because file is locked by processes; or only temporary item (and removed already). But can be different points (good to know your OS/platform).
F-Secure description for this detection (?!):
Possible to be careful some days (as doublecheck) - if it was not clear about 'why this item was under system'.
Also maybe possible to run some well-known on-demand scanners by well-known companies. As Malwarebytes do provide some tools; or HitmanPro with abilities to run scan (as trial-time or one-time scan). But good to be sure about all of this steps.
