Kinda Nervous

Recommended Posts

Alright, this is the second time something like this has happened to me (I'm stupid, I know). About 30 minutes ago I was on my computer browsing the web. I went and clicked on one of my websites I usually go on and a phishing download tab came up. Like usual, I went to go close the tab. But right before I closed it, It downloaded 'Chromebrowser.exe' or something. Knowing this is how you can basically lose everything on your computer, I attempted to cancel the download then Immediately shut my computer down. I tuned it back on and moved the file to the recycle bin and deleted it. I then ran a quick scan showing nothing was there. I then did a c: drive scan. Apparently there was a corrupted file. I deleted it and then restored my computer. I am running another virus scan and I am currently moving all my items to my alt. What else can I do to make sure I have got rid of it. I havent typed any passwords or anything yet in fear of a Key logger. Any help is appreciated.

Change your password.

if you didnt run the .exe it should be okay but good to be sure. Be sure to run GOOD virus scanners i use malwarebytes.org (are links allowed idk?)

 

most keyloggers will be hidden and begin on startup. you can try to check by doing this:

start

run

type in msconfig

startup

anything with an Unknown Manufacturer I would just uncheck for startup

I cant think of anything i use that doesnt have a known manufacturer i had a bug hidden as Mobile Itunes or something like that, manufacturer unknown.(Apple Inc. should have been the manufacturer)

 

and of course change all passwords not just steam

Relax searched it up, it's a Trojan.generic, those usually just allow malware but not key loggers. But if you are really scared and is willing to do anything to get rid of it for good, reinstall your operating system.

One time, I had something like this happen to me, apparently just opening a link can start a download sometimes, luckily my slow internet allowed me to cancel it. In your case, you should have been fine after reverting your windows to an earlier date. Literally, anything that happened after that point was erased, the bug is gone. Rest your mind.

Don't worry m8

 

If you didn't open the exe, you're fine.

 

It can't do anything until you open it.

 

Run Malwarebytes. If it doesn't find anything, you're good.

"Did you try turning it off then back on?"

This is no place to be joking. If you were in the same situation, you would be shitting your pants as well.

I honestly wouldn't be. You have to agree to a download before the virus gets on your computer. He didn't download anything.
