system32\tasks, file detected as trojan.multi.gen.AutoRunTaskFile.a; Not sure what happened

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been using Kaspersky Free for almost half a year and have been very pleased so far, every virus or malware being swiftly found and dealt with. However, today I ran into an event and I am not sure what to make of it.

Kaspersky Free has found a Trojan in a subfolder of Windows, then proceeded to disinfect it. However, during this disinfection procedure I found myself with some restrictions imposed upon my computer: if I tried to open the Trojan file location (either through Kaspersky or manually) then the folder would instantly close, and in addition to this, right-clicking on an unrelated application's icon in the taskbar would show me a drop-down list, but with the normal options replaced by a single weird symbol. The disinfection lasted for about 5 minutes during which Kaspersky Free looked like it was performing a Quick Scan, and when it finished my computer promptly got rebooted with no user input.

After said reboot my computer has had no issues, I even did a full scan with both Kaspersky Free and MalwareBytes with no hits. But I'm still weirded out by that experience since Kaspersky has always asked if I wanted to reboot before. So my question is, is this standard procedure or did something go wrong?

B) if the KFA-Disinfected completely the found virus. Then no worries.

Regarding the inability to access a folder or other, windows tasks

during the disinfection remain unknown : Now with the reboot

after or before, usually is done after to finish an action

Hey thanks, I was worried because both reports in that image I posted were apparently caused by the same thing so I thought it was multiplying or something (which would explain why I couldn't access stuff while Kaspersky was disinfecting, so it doesn't spread, but I wanted to make sure). I'm not very good with computers.

Nothing beats peace of mind though, thank you again.
