McAfee keeps on detecting a virus mwu.exe in my computer. Tried my luck on Malwarebytes but no threats were detected. I also can't trace the file using its full path. What should I do?
Please let me know the file name and location which is showing in McAfee Quarantine items list.
Hello @RagothKarnan. Thanks for responding. The virus does not actually appear on the Quarantined Items list. However, this is the information provided after the full scan:
Infected Item: mwu.exe
Full Path: C:\Users\Jeriel\mwu.exe
Threats found: JTI\Suspect.131076!e55c673c4f70
I tried to locate it using the path but I can't see it. I ran the attrib command on cmd and it appears there labeled A SH. I tried to delete it on cmd but to no avail.
Please visit the below path and check if there are any quarantined items
If the directory is empty it means that McAfee has already cleared the infection. Note that some infections require McAfee to reboot the PC for cleaning.
Hello, @selvan. Thanks for responding.
I followed your instruction and arrived at the Quarantine file in .db format which I opened. From what I have seen, it seems the directory is empty (I'm not that tech-savvy).
I rebooted my PC, performed a full scan, and again, McAfee detects the virus mwu.exe and says it cannot delete it.
