    Graphic Problems after Miner Virus ?

    Hello friends, i have problem about my graphics in games. I opened a thread in HERE. It's new and you can read it in 1 minutes. I want to ask you a question about it.

    I had a miner virus before i reformatted my computer now its safe. I checked with some known malware softwares and nothing found but my graphics in games has shimmering effects, flickering shadows and anti aliasing problems after new installed OS (i done it 4-5 times). The problem is not about GPU cuz we changed it and problem still persist. I checked all internet about this issue and people changed nearly all parts of system but no solution found yet.

    My question is " is it possible any kind of virus like rootkits hide in my hardware and ruin my graphics ? " or do you have any idea that can cause this.

    Thanks for your helps.

    Re: Graphic Problems after Miner Virus ?

    Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to your desktop.
    • Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
    • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to the following:
      • Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
      • A 14 day trial of the Premium features is pre-selected. You may deselect this if you wish and it will not diminish the scanning and removal capabilities of the program.
    • Click Finish.
    • On the Dashboard, click the 'Update Now >>' link
    • On the Settings tab > Detection and Protection subtab, Detection Options, tick the box 'Scan for rootkits'.
    • Click on the Scan tab, then click on Scan Now >> . If an update is available, click the Update Now button.
    • A Threat Scan will begin.
    • With some infections, you may see this message box.
      • 'Could not load DDA driver'
    • Click 'Yes' to this message, to allow the driver to load after a restart.
    • Allow the computer to restart. Continue with the rest of these instructions.
    • When the scan is complete, click Apply Actions.
    • Wait for the prompt to restart the computer to appear, then click on Yes.

    How to get logs (Export log to save as txt):
    • After the restart once you are back at your desktop, open MBAM once more.
    • Click on the History tab > Application Logs.
    • Double click on the scan log which shows the Date and time of the scan just performed.
    • Click 'Export'.
    • Click 'Text file (*.txt)'
    • In the Save File dialog box which appears, click on Desktop.
    • In the File name: box type a name for your scan log.
    • A message box named 'File Saved' should appear stating "Your file has been successfully exported".
    • Click Ok
    • Copy/paste that saved log to your next reply.

    Yes, all clear. I didn't think that there was a rootkit but it didn't hurt to check.
