found html:evilcursor-B[Trj] how do i know it is gone?
« on: September 25, 2021, 11:10:00 PM »
It was found in a tmp file in downloads. i have read that it can keep popping up. I believe that I had gotten it from a phishing email posing as consumer reports. It had unsubscribe text at the bottom, but no links except one in the e-mail separate from the unsubscribe text.

After I went to the website, my cursor kept moving around, even in the lock screen. Programs kept opening, and then the windows taskbar search was disabled.

Something that is odd though, is prior to that e-mail, windows opened when I enabled bluetooth, and seemingly in safe mode.

Regardless, I want to make sure that this trojan is not anywhere else, and does not popup anymore. Some fishy websites say to uninstall some preinstalled windows programs and extensions that are not viruses or malware. They also tell to download some programs that are unknown, so I suspect that those programs might be suspicious. Please advise.
