Do i have a Virus?

Ok then. Thank you for validating my steps. I can sleep well tonight lmao.

If you want to be extra, extra safe you can download Anti Malwarebytes and run the trial period for the full version and make a full scan. ;) Afterwards just delete it.

Alright so, I found this Russian video claiming to fix the unsupported cpu fix for apex legends a lot of the comments said it worked so i was naive and downloaded the file. I set a restore point just before i opened the file and thank god i set a restore point because as soon as i opened it Windows defender notifications were popping up saying "Windows Defender Antivirus has detected malware or other potentially unwanted software.
 For more information please see the following:
https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=37020&name=Trojan:Win32/Fuerboos.C!cl&threatid=2147723654&enterprise=0
     Name: Trojan:Win32/Fuerboos.C!cl
     ID: 2147723654
     Severity: Severe
     Category: Trojan
 

Straight away, i ran system restore and deleted the download file as soon as i got back into windows. I also ran a full scan of my hard drive using windows defender. Do i still have the virus somehow?

If you restored your PC to before you got infected, it shouldn't really be present anymore.

 

Then again, part of me wonders why you would even consider downloading a shady file from a Russian video tutorial? You set a restore point, so you were even anticipating things to go south.


New to Star Citizen? Look no further!

I just wanted apex legends to work on my phenom cpu. I saw the guy in the video run some virus check and i got sketched out. So thats why i set a restore point. Lol
