    so about yesterday when i was sitting on my pc i got a ping from avira saying that it had quartined a suspicious file that looked like a CryptoMiner.gen so thinking nothing of it i did the rational thing and told avira to remove the malware and then went on with my day


    an hour later my pc started slowing down, 2 hours later Microsoft Security essentials flared up saying my computer had a severe alert level threat, so i opened up Malwarebytes and run a scane and nothing, it says my systems in complete health, i run a quick scan with Avira, it says its detected a threat so i tell it to do a deep scan of my entire system, its been going for a good 9 hours now and still going strong so no luck on that end, and then i tried using Microsoft Security Essentials, ive had my pc a good 2ish years now so of course ive had a virus before but MSE squashed it within half an hour, however now im getting this error.

    it looks fine till i saw the error and error msg, i have no clue how to fix this, my pc is more or less a potato at this point and i cannot do anything at all on it and im freaking out as i had a deadline in a week and i need to write up my bibliography and render a ton of stuff out in maya but i cant becouse Microsoft security essentials cant Remove the Trojan catagory virus becouse of an error message i cant find any help with.



    if anyone has come across this before or has a fix for this it would be a godsend as i am afraid to turn on my pc at this point incase this virus damages critical files and wrecks my pc

    Security Essential Not Removing Malware

    My Security Essentials running under Windows 7 finds malware "Backdoor" but does not remove it. Just runs for hours with no result?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks Neil

    How long have you been using MSE?



    Have you scanned for malware? List
    of Malware Removal Tools




    Assuming this is a recent install of MSE and your computer is not infected see the following:



    Be sure you have removed all other security software from the PC.



    Sometimes remnants of prior security software will cause issues with your current antivirus program. A possible reason
    for this problem is that you have conflicting security software still installed fully or partially on the PC.



    Prior Security Software? McAfee, Norton, Spybot, Trend Micro? What about a trial version of an antivirus program that was pre-installed when the computer was purchased? If you reformatted/reinstalled the operating system
    did you also reinstall a trial version of a security program? Did you remove such programs to include using the appropriate removal tool (McAfee Removal Tool, Norton Removal Tool, etc) and then reboot the computer? List
    of anti-malware product removal tools




    Recommend you review the following paying close attention to Common issues that can affect MSE: Microsoft
    Security Essentials Installation Checklist
    .



    Further information regarding MSE can be found at MSE
    Consolidated FAQ




    If the above suggestions do not help or are not applicable to your situation, you may need
    to uninstall/reinstall MSE.

    You should be able to remove MSE from Control Panel. Any problems uninstalling see: Uninstalling
    Microsoft Security Essentials


    Recommend you restart the computer to ensure the uninstall is complete.

    You can download a new MSE Installation File from http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security-essentials-all-versions



    If you cannot resolve your issue please post back in this thread with further information.
