ThirdPartyAppMgr.exe - a virus?
Hey guys?

My computer started runnig real slow... and then I ran a quick scan with Kaspersky which showed a lot of Malware. But I dont' know if it deletes it or just detects it.

And well... I checked the task manager and it showed ThirdPartyAppMgr.exe eating up 88,000 something of the processes. And I wonder if that;'s a virus?

Hiya

Are you still having this problem? If so, do the following:


Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.



Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or Here

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
