Might have a Bitcoin Mining Virus on bitcoin mining pc specs PC! Privacy::Might have a Bitcoin Mining Virus on my PC! Hi all, I’m wondering if anybody could help me please.
8GB Corsair XMS3 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM. 1GB HDD, 500GB HDD and 64GB SSD. I have been using MSI Afterburner 4. 0 version to overclock my GPU upon start up of Windows. I’ve never had any trouble with the software in the past and my GPU has held up very well in Unigen Heaven tests and a recent play through of Alien: Isolation. C up today, I realised that the fan on it was making a loud noise. The temps are not worrying, but obviously the fan has kicks in as a result of the Usage.
I can only imagine it is some kind of Virus causing this. I have run a Malware-Bytes scan, which removed a number of threats from my P. C, but is now showing it as clean. I then ran Windows Essentials, but this also shows my P. Does anybody know anything about this problem and does anybody have any advice? Your help would be greatly appreciated! C specs are as follows if needed: Asus M5A99X Evo R2.
How to tell if I’m running a bitcoin mining program? Thanks for all of your answers guys. I used Process Explorer to find that a process called ‘WDM. I didn’t recognise it, so I closed it, only for it to reappear again.
But for the interval in between closing it and it then reappearing, the GPU load would drop down to a more acceptable level. So I opened up the containing folder and located it, subsequently attempting to delete it. I couldn’t due to it being in use. GPU load has remained normal ever since.
