Win32 Malware Gen is a virus

Win32: malware gen

(1/5) >>>

After discovering unknown activity on my husband's PC (W7), Avast Free Antivirus found the Win32: Malware-gen trojan. I think I remember that the same problem arose almost 2 years ago and that I worked it off according to the help here. Apparently the measures did not work or there was a renewed infection. In one of the logs I discovered that the infections were found in a Lightroom folder. That amazes me. My husband works with a lot of Adobe programs and we thought Adobe was legitimate. In addition, these files are all in the recycle bin. Probably because yesterday I threw all the AllSync backups into the bin. Could that mean the Trojan survived in backups?

How serious is the situation? The PC is in a home network with my PC (W7) and some devices connected to WLAN, such as cell phones and tablets. The LED that shows activity on the hard drive flashes more than once per second, sometimes it flickers, sometimes it glows longer and brighter. The network LED on the router flashes. And of course, when nobody is sitting at the PC. Incidentally, this is still the case after I've run the various tools, according to the thread Help with infections.

Hopefully someone can help me? My husband and I are older generations and did not grow up with PCs. I have no in-depth knowledge.

Many thanks to those who have mercy. :)

I have attached all the requested logs. Except ASWmbr. The program keeps crashing after a little over 4 minutes.


An expert is informed.

Hello, there is a possibility that the fuses have infected.
I am giving a program that you can use to check the backups later, during which I will clear what I can see and perform a deeper scan

Thanks for the instructions. I did everything (needs patience;))

Unfortunately there seems to be no improvement.
Start of pc need about 8 min. Until I can work with it. (It's been like that for a long time) Then the occupation LED is still on (permanently) for another 15 min. After this time, it continues blinking like before.

I installed procmon.exe to search for unusual activities, but can't find anything. It looks like the print screen sysinternal3 with a filter and like sysinternal4 without filter.

Do you have any other ideas? Sure you have ... 8)

I am glad you understand English as my German is atrocious :)
