    Post Suspicious processes on task manager

    Recently I was going through my user and system processes on my task manager and found at first one process called "despicable government.exe" or something of the like, I immediately ended the process (should have gone to the source I'm aware, I panicked), I search for a little bit more and found another called "Narcissistic regret.exe", this time I went to the source, somewhere in my appdata on the roaming folder and erased the folder... forgot what it was called...
    Does anyone have any idea what it might be? I tried to google it but to no avail

    I am on windows 7 x86

    Sounds like standard malware renaming executables to fool your AV. Time for a complete, in-depth AV and malware scan.
    What AV and malware software do you have on the PC?

    cheers, Paul

    I use AVG 2014, the free version, so far haven't noticed any visible effects of any virus whatsoever.
    I'll do a full scan then, thank you for replying

    You can also run the Kaspersky offline scanner.
    See this post for suggestions.

    Hello romela:

    After a high-quality antivirus scan, please consider running a full system Custom Scan + all options with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM).

    Download: https://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbam/

    Later, think about re-appraising the system's malware defense arsenal.

    Cheers.

    All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.
