I literally just built my computer 2 days ago and I suddenly got this virus, I have no clue where and how I got it from I just downloaded league and browsed on youtube and the typical social networking sites. My Symantec reports a few but I'm not sure where it detects it, and when I use MSE it says it's

The following error occurred: Error code 0x80070021. The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file.

Category: Trojan

Description: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

file:C:\ProgramData\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\12.1.671.4971.105\SRTSP\Quarantine\APQ3F50.tmp

Get more information about this item online.

When I try removing it, it stops at 75% and doesn't continue. I used MalwareBytes and it detected nothing. I really need to get rid of this, I just got my computer and I already have a virus, please help !

Hi JustinD and welcome at GeekstoGo!

I'm crooleeck and I'll try to help you. But first please notice that I'm not limitless, I'm not familiar with all software, I don't know everything. However, it has taken me years to learn what I know. I would be glad to help you.

Fight against malware is NOT instantaneous, most infections require several courses of action to completely eradicate. It's also time-consuming, so be patient! We all like to know final result, so if you have since resolved the issues you were originally experiencing, or have received help elsewhere, please post.

  • Please watch this topic.
  • Do exactly - step by step - what I wish for. Don't be afraid! If there's anything you don't understand, stop and ask!
  • Please don't run unsupervised tools or fix on your own without my direction - it can be dangerous.
  • You must reply within 3 days or your topic will be closed

Please be patient with me as I am currently in training, and all of my responses to you have to be reviewed by my instructor before I post them. Just keep in mind that you get the advantage as you have 2 people examining your issue.

Step 1:
Posted ImageOTL
OTL is currently our primary tool for searching key areas of the registry and other system locations for the telltale signs of malware. It generates a comprehensive log, and offers an initial diagnosis.

  • Download OTL to your desktop.
  • Double click on the OTL icon to run it.
    Posted Image
    Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Select: options:
    • All users.
    • 64-bit scan if appears.
    • Under Extra registry select Use SafeList
    • LOP Check
    • Purity Check
      Posted Image
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in:


  • Click the Run scan button.
When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and paste them into your reply.
