    VulkanRT -- Trojan? Virus? How Do I Safely Remove It? [​IMG]


    I believe I may have a malicious threat called VulkanRT. Above is the list of files in a folder called VulkanRT. I have not clicked on any of them. A site called Malwareless lists this as a Trojan. Even though the files are all dated 9/13/2017, the C:/ dir lists them as being obtained on 1/4/2018.

    Remove VulkanRT Virus - Removal Guide - MalwareLess"[/URL]
    I don't know how I got it, but I believe I should remove it. It is not listed as an Add-On in Chrome or Firefox. This is a stand-alone computer, not linked to a LAN.

    Does anyone know what I should be doing at this point? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  3. Windows defender changing it's own settings . . . not okay

    I get on my computer today and see a notification in the system tray that Windows Defender has done it's job and detected malware and quarantined it . . . Yay Microsoft Defender . . . right ! ?

    As i'm checking the items it's found, i realize that a setting i very purposefully set in windows defender has been removed/uninstalled if you will in the process of dealing with the quarantining of the detected malware.

    I have a patrician Labelled "F", it happens to be the drive/location i use for "ALL" downloading, regardless of the type or content, if i think it's sound, safe or not, that is "MY" download location. I chose if and when items on that patrician get scanned.
    i am usually more than **** enough in my behaviours to make sure i scan a download before attempting to install or use said files.

    I don't like that "DEFENDER" felt the need to take away my "choice" without my permission. Microsoft certainly requires so frigging many of my permissions to have access to all my choices and data during an install of the OS and anything that comes along
    afterwords, so why give me choices that after a few months it's says screw this, i don't like your choice and i'm changing it to something else.

    Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

    Items:

    file:C:\Program Files (x86)\VulkanRT\1.0.11.1\UninstallVulkanRT.exe

    file:C:\Program Files (x86)\VulkanRT\1.0.11.1\V.ico

    file:C:\Program Files (x86)\VulkanRT\1.0.3.0\UninstallVulkanRT.exe

    file:C:\Program Files (x86)\VulkanRT\1.0.3.0\V.ico

    file:C:\Program Files (x86)\VulkanRT\1.0.39.1\UninstallVulkanRT.exe

    file:C:\Program Files (x86)\VulkanRT\1.0.39.1\V.ico

    regkey:HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\VulkanRT1.0.11.1

    regkey:HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\VulkanRT1.0.3.0

    regkey:HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\VulkanRT1.0.39.1

    regkeyvalue:HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Exclusions\Paths\\F:\

    uninstall:HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\VulkanRT1.0.11.1

    uninstall:HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\VulkanRT1.0.3.0

    uninstall:HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\VulkanRT1.0.39.1

    and on top of this, i've discovered that the finding of the VulkanRT software is a false positive issue that appears from time to time, so not only is microsoft's tools making new decisions for me without my input but is doing so on a known false flag. Thanks
    **** !

  4. VulkanRT -- Trojan? Virus? How Do I Safely Remove It?

    Hi Florida Rene

    First I would recommend you make a backup of your data.

    Download and run malwarebytes. Get it directly from malwarebytes.com Free Cyber Security & Anti-Malware Software

    Once installed click scan in left hand column, then Custom scan in center. Scan entire C:drive. If data is on other drives scan those as well. This will take some time. ( One plus hours) This should remove it.

    At a minimum if should identify it.

    Assuming it removes it, malwarebytes will ask to restart computer. When you are back in Windows rescan to ensure it is removed. Then scan your data back up to make sure it is also clean

    When finished you can uninstall Malwarebytes.

    Hey Florida Rene,

    Just an FYI ...

    VulkanRT is part AMD & Nvidia software and I do see a lot about it being a virus/trojan. I have the same folder on my Desktop PC (Nvidia Video Card) and for what it's worth ... haven't had any issues with it (ie. browser hijacks, popups, etc).

    You may find as I did (it appears, it's not actually installed) as I couldn't find it in Control Panel > Programs and Features OR Settings > Apps

    Neither Ccleaner OR Geek Uninstaller show VulcanRT anything listed.

    Malwarebytes (paid) / AdwareCleaner / Windows Defender have never flagged anything to do with VulcanRT.

  6. What type of graphics card do you have? VulkanRT should be the Vulkan runtime libraries for your graphics driver. I wouldn't remove it as it's part of the driver itself.

  8. VulkanRT -- Trojan? Virus? How Do I Safely Remove It?

    Matt... I have a NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450.

    Ken, Jack... I apologize. I should have noted that I ran CCleaner, Malwarebytes, Avast, and Super AntiSpyware before I started this thread. None indicated anything wrong...other than the usual cookie parade via SAS. And thank you for the gHacks article.

    Eagle51... I can't find it in Programs & Features either or in Settings/Apps. But your post is very reassuring. Thank you very much. I guess I should forget Malwareless. And perhaps I should just ignore VulkanRT. You've done a lot to put my mind at ease.

    Ken... If you're in Caledon Hills, congrats. It was lovely when I was there 30 years ago and I hope it still has those beautiful rolling farmlands.

    Thank you all for coming to my side!

    Those files I can assure you are safe. I have the same folder as you can see from the screenshot. VulkanRT gets installed when you install the graphics driver from Nvidia. It helps with game performance with some games like Doom, Mad Max, Roblox and other games that has Vulkan support. It's also safe to uninstall it if you want but if you update your graphics driver it will reinstall VulkanRT.
