Hi,

I switched off my PC today and got a message saying task scheduler is trying to close tasks, I checked the task scheduler and there are multiple tasks I have never seen before, they have dodgy sounding names. I did have an infection a few months ago and these tasks refer to the malware that was installed when I got infected. I have deleted them now and wanted to quickly ask a question.

1. Why didn't Malwarebytes, Zemana, Adwcleaner, Junkware removal, Roguekiller, hitman pro not find these tasks and remove them? They struggled to find the actual exe's, never mind the task schedules! What program is best for searching regedit for these kinds of entries?


Thanks,

GS

Can't suggest regedits ....
But I run Winpatrol ... And I'd take a quick look at tasks scheduled and running....
and shut down the ones I didn't want.

Leave it running at Startup ... (It's light on resources)
Then Scotty will bark at you if there's any changes ...
And give you the option to accept or deny the change ...
Startups ... Schedules ... etc ...
