    Please help:Is this a virus? Start up showed C:\Windows\system32\


    Hello when i started my Windows 10 laptop and logged in, my laptop did something ive never seen it do before. The desktop loaded and 3 windows immediately came up on it. Inside the window it was just black no text and they were all “C\Windows\system32” i didnt click anything and after 5 seconds they all closed/disappeared off my screen.


    I immediately ran a scan on Malwarebytes and it said 0 threats detected


    I restarted my computer 3 times trying to get it to pop up again so I can screenshot it but it only happened that once. And disappeared before I could take a picture.


    But im still worried because last night I was on a site called Tinychat and got into a heated arguement with strangers. Should I be worried? What was this window
    and why did it pop up? Thanks

    :)

  3. CSRSS @ c/i386

    no, I still have doubt..... I am 97% sure it is a virus.

    click start... search winsys.exe..... shows winsys folder from c/WINDOWS/SYSTEM32.... open up.... inside see folder called:

    - avpr.exe
    here is refference for you to help me get rid of it avpr.exe - avpr, Mydoom.af Worm, Virus Notice!

    also remmeber my SDfix log result?:
    Trojan Files Found:



    Could Not Remove C:\csrss.exe
    Could Not Remove C:\WINDOWS\lsasss.exe
    Could Not Remove C:\WINDOWS\system32\remote.exe
    Could Not Remove C:\WINDOWS\system32\windowz.exe
    Could Not Remove C:\WINDOWS\system32\winsys.exe
    Could Not Remove C:\WINDOWS\system32\winxp.exe

    ......this link avpr.exe - avpr, Mydoom.af Worm, Virus Notice! shows that the avpr.exe is related to lsass which is similar like lsasss.exe

    also here is some of the file/folder names in the winsys folder:
    - ccsrs.exe
    - CSRSS.EXE
    - CSRSRV.DLL
    - fuck.exe
    - gothica.exe
    - winxp.exe
    - ANTSetup.exe
    - dla.exe
    - LUSRMGR.MSC
    - CMD.EXE


    dont some of these look suspicious?

    Virus - Please solve me how to deal with this virus

    Thanks and i've already tried to delete manually but when i try to do that, it shows blue screen and reboot itself.

    Even bitdefender and malware bytes arent able to delete it bcz it's in globalroot.
