    Do I have a virus?


    I found a suspicious application in my Startup Menu named "system", I have no idea what it does or how it got there, it takes up about 2.4gb of space. I suspect that it's some kind of malware or virus. I turned it off in the start-up menu a longtime ago, I was browsing through my task manager and saw it among startup apps, clicked to see properties and noticed that it was last accessed today. Tried deleting it but it says "Action cannot be complete because the file is open in system". I've scanned it using my Norton Antivirus and it says the file is safe, but I have doubts.Can anyone help wit

    :)

  2. Clean the Virus

    Hi,

    Virus infection usually happens on a computer when it is exposed to an infected website or removable devices. For us to help you clean the malware on your device, we would need you to answer the following questions:

    • Which build and version of Windows are you using?
    • Did you encounter any error messages related to having a virus infection on your device?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    In the meantime, we suggest running any available antivirus software on your PC. It would be very helpful to us if you could also provide the result of the antivirus scan process.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Follow the steps here.

    If it is not listed in the Control Panel, or it can't be removed there, move on to step 2. You might be able to skip the step with HitmanPro. (30 day free trial if needed)
