Microsoft antivirus critical error window

9 posts in this topic

Hi, I just built my first PC and I'm using Avast (free version) and paid version of Malwarebytes Pro. Everything has been going well until yesterday. I got a window that came up that said something like "Microsoft antivirus has found critical" something. I didn't write it down so I forgot what the rest said. I clicked it off, and when I went to shut down my computer, I had forgot to exit out of google and on the "Force shutdown" screen it said there was 1 virus on my computer.

I have ran tons of scans with Avast and MWBP full and quick and have found nothing. I'm pretty worried. ANd in my Malwarebytes logs, there are tons of "IP Block" messages.

I forgot to add more. So I'm just wondering what I should do here. Do I have something? I'm pretty new to all of this. Should I just do a clean install of windows?

What is "order number" in the contact customer support page?

That's only needed if you were a user of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro. It would be a number provided to you by Cleverbridge our ecommerce partner. If you're not a user of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro, then you can just skip that part.

I am a user of malwarebytes Pro. Okay, so I made those logs, where do I send them?

Either post them in a new topic here or create a ticket on the helpdesk here. Which you choose is up to you, but only do one or the other.

I responded to the support ticket email with my results. Is that okay?
