  3. Malware tprdpw64.exe after installing 7zip

    Thank you for the reply and the suggestions. However neither link provided a working solution. I followed each set of instructions step by step, to the T, but the viruses are still there.

    I killed the processes with Rkill as instructed, and it found and ended the malware process `tprdpw64.exe`. It, however, did nothing
    about the adware `svcvmx` & `svcvmx client` processes. After doing so I downloaded and installed Zemana, as instructed, and let it do a full system scan. Might I add that this took over
    10 hours to complete, as I have 1,396,541 files on my PC, so this whole thing wasted nearly half a day of my time with no results.

    Zemana detected the malware virus `tprdpw64.exe` located at "C:\WINDOWS\System32\tprdpw64.exe"
    (among other, smaller "threats"), and labeled it as malware. After it finished the scan, it said it has placed all files into quarantine, including `tprdpw64.exe`.
    However, when checking the quarantine list `tprdpw64.exe` is
    not listed. I then decided to have Zemana remove the files in the
    quarantine list from my system and then rebooted my PC. It removed them all successfully, except for `tprdpw64.exe`
    which is still on my system, and still runs (I can still see it in task manager after rebooting). So the 10+ hours of waiting were all for nothing.

    I then used Zemana's "drag-and-drop" feature to re-scan just `tprdpw64.exe`
    (in order to not have to wait 10+ hours again). It scanned it, and now says the file is not a threat (but it clearly is).

    I then proceeded to step 2, using AdwCleaner to remove the adware. This did not work in the slightest. AdwCleaner did not detect the adware virus at all, and thus did nothing about it. I still cannot remove the viruses manually, either. However for some
    reason, the adware `svcvmx` & `svcvmx client` processes no longer seem to run (my PC has been on for about an hour, and the processes
    have yet to startup). However, even so the files are still on my file system and would like to delete them.

    EDIT

    I have just searched my registry, looking for any possible signs of tprdpw64 being listed, and there was nothing there.

    Dozens of Localbridge.ex processes

    Dozens of instances of Localbridge.ex running

    My Win 10 laptop has been low on memory and high on CPU usage (Windows Explorer specifically, 20-40% at all times) but the amount of memory used by running processes in Task Manager does not correlate to the percentage that TM indicates is being used. I
    heard about RAMMap so I ran it and found dozens of instances of localbridge.ex (not .exe). I have no idea what this is but I'm pretty sure I don't need quite so many as I've had. I don't know if 'bridge' is being used in a network sense but I use Private Internet
    Access VPN and it has all kinds of dangly bits all over the process list, it's not the cleanest thing I've ever seen so maybe it's part of the problem.

    One photo is of dozens of instances, the other looks more reasonable.

    Search engines have been of no help in figuring out where to start, localbridge.ex is an unknown, at least with my search skills!
