    Ok since yesterday I have noticed my PC has slowed down almost to a halt. It is struggling even to play youtube vids. I have ran a few scans and found out that I have this bitcoin miner virus.
    I have run MBAM in safemode as well as various other tools but it comes back as soon as I reboot into normal Windows.

    The issue is I cannot run MBAM normally or the other programs as they simply fail to boot and also when I search online for any mention of this virus or the tools to fix it and it shuts down my browser.

    So currently I am having to use safe mode just to be able to post this as it also closes my web browser when I come here.

    I'm also finding most of the removal guides for this thing are simply trying to sell you their programs.

    Here's my syslog.
