I have an entry that keeps coming up as a file C:\WINDOWS\$NtServicePackUninstall$\setup50.exe and I do not think this is a good file even thought I think that’s from installing a service pack.how do I remove it?
The way viruses and spyware are attaching themselves to files are becoming more problematic as they hide themselves in files that normally would look good.? To any inexperienced or even avid tech user, C:\WINDOWS\$NtServicePackUninstall$\setup50.exe file would seem harmless because of the file location where it is in looks like it is a legitimate file in a service pack update.? Unfortunately this file is malicious and needs to be removed with some of our most trusted programs.
We’re going to start with Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware
Extra Note:If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
I also would like you to download and install SUPERAntiSpyware.? Please update it and run a full scan to see if it comes up with any other infections.? The infection you describe usually does not “attend parties alone” and I’d like to verify all of its buddies left the building with it.
