Asking one who knows more re this
What system files are infected
I got the same two files in my scan today! I don't know what to do with them and don't know what they are.
Was this the same detection and same registry entry?
If so post the file names here.
Mun112233 please post the file names in your detection?
The two files shown up on my McAfee scan were:-
Thanks but I was asking what were the file infected by the malware that were listed in the quarantined list
Hi Thankyou for the fast reply.
Last night i turned my laptop off and then on after which the quarantined file is greyed out so i cant click on it to see the files infected and i cant delete it either. The registry file just simply said Registry Key. One of the system file names i mentioned in my original post, the second one i believe was the same but with a few more words to it.
I think theres something wrong with laptop it seems a bit unstable and i had a BSOD 2 days ago. So i think i may need to refresh it and hope that this matter resolves. Although this has nothing to do with McAfee i was wondering if i did refresh in windows 8 will there be a problem if system files are infected or should it still manage to reverse this.
Thank you so much for your help.
You can view the Threat Detection from Mcafee for (PUP-FJP) in the removal instructions given, it states to (Disable) your System Restore and run a "FullScan" Since McAfee detected both , it should delete and remove the mentioned Pups. The McAfee info can be found HERE Of course you will need to turn System restore back on,after completion of Removal.
You can click on the (Removal Instructions) and it will explain how to turn off System Restore/Turn back on.
Virus Total indicates at least (30) Anti-Virus Engines have detected this as well, of course with their own individual Detection Names. It can be found HERE
All the very best,
I assume you have mcafee security centre 13.6? The greyed out quarantine list is a bug that is about to be fixed. The system files relate to safe mode Iunderstand.
