Got a blue screen and now I'm paranoid
So I have a kind of weird question...
I have F-secure installed. I know that Windows Defender does not work
with F-secure. But I did a full scan of my computer with Windows
Defender because I got a blue screen earlier and wanted to do a scan
with another program too just in case.
I was using Microsoft Edge (on a website some that might have suspicious
adds but I never clicked on anything and the page has always been safe
when I don't click on any adds and I have F-secure installed so I have
never been worried). I had exited the "website with adds" and I was
simply typing something to google search box when suddenly my PC's mouse
stopped moving, Keyboard stopped working and my PC crashed to a blue
screen and gave me some kind of memory error it was maybe Memory
management or something else (I can't remember the exact one.) I don't
know if being on that one website could be connected to this blue screen
or if it was simply an error out of nowhere ( which my pc has never got
before in the over 2 years I have had it).
If my PC is fine and nothing is wrong I'll still never visit any website
with "too" many adds again AV installed or not.
Windows Defender keeps telling me about PUA: Win32/NetFilter
file: C:\Recovery\Customizations\usmt.ppkg->\ICB\MachineSpecific\File\C$\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\GameFirst IV\Driver\tdi\i386\netfilter2.sys
Now when I pressed delete it "spins around"/does the process for a long
time then it is gone and says that there are no current threats.
When I restart my computer or do another scan with Windows Defender it
gives the same PUA notification again.
F-secure scan does not find anything.
I can't find the folder where the supposed PUA is located at.
(Also does Malware bytes work with F-secure installed?) I did a scan
with it too and it at least didn't find anything either.
I would just want some clarification...is my PC safe? PUA is not a virus
according to Microsoft support and it is not harmful (they told me
Is this true? Do I not need to worry about this notification? I just
cancelled the Windows Defender scan last time it saw the supposed PUA
again. But I'm still worried if it still exists. Is here some kind of
way to be sure that it no longer exists without needing to disable
F-secure in order to Windows Defender to maybe work properly?
This is really confusing because like I said earlier I know that Windows
Defender does not work with F-secure so I can't even see protection
history and I don't know if the delete option got rid of the program or
not. And like I said earlier F-secure never notified me about the/any
I'm just really paranoid about this. Even if the other scans don't find
anything and even if Windows Defender finds something are my PC and
I need to confirm this...otherwise I will not feel safe using my PC
anymore. I don't want to reset my whole PC and I have a lot of important
files but no back ups.
Help is greatly appreciated!
My questions in short for clarification:
1. Windows Defender full scan keeps finding PUA but other AV scans
don't. Does this mean that I'm safe?
2. Does Windows Defender do the "delete" option even with F-secure
installed? And even if it does not is the program still gone since
F-secure has not notified me about it?
3. Is the notification fine to ignore since the other scan don't find
4. Is PUA really not harmful? It is not a virus? It won't do any damage
to my PC or privacy?
5. Why can't I find the location where the program is located at? (I'm
not sure I have hidden files shown or not...they should be but I'm not
Once again help and opinions/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
