On my wife’s Windows 10 computer, she has been seeing “toast” messages from Windows Security that tell her malware has been removed.

Opening Windows Security and looking at history, it locked. I found a way to delete the logs that grew to large to open and tried again.

The history was initially empty, but reports that Trojan:MSIL/Injector.CP!MTB was found and removed started popping up every few minutes. The details each showed a dll with a seemingly random name in %temp%.

I’ve turned off notifications, but these dlls still appear and get removed regularly.

Malwarebytes 4 found and quarantined about 25 “PUP” files related to ASK toolbar and MaxSearch. I don’t know if these are related, but quarantining these did not stop the Trojan:MSIL/Injector.CP!MTB from appearing.

    Windows is just one big collection of problems with known workarounds.

    Something must be creating them, reset DNS cache by running command prompt as admin and typing in this command:

    ipconfig /flushdns

    Also check for enabled proxy’s by going into Proxy Settings.

    You can also run additional scans using Hitmanpro and ESET online scanner.
