Generally malware authors don't usage PowerCovering because the default execution policy for PowerShell would certainly not enable their scripts to run.

You have the right to verify this by opening powershell and also utilizing this command

Get-ExecutionPolicyWhatever you get as a result you need to change it to "All Signed". From an admin PowerCovering prompt do

Set-ExecutionPolicy AllSignedThis must block any scripts that aren't signed by a Microsoft approved source.

Then you could think about running Malwarebytes.

If you adjust the execution policy and also it "breaks" some software program you mounted. Kill it via fire. Normally malwarebytes is pretty good around picking up "Potentially Unwanted Programs" yet it can not gain all of them. As a dominion of thumb, any kind of software program that desires to run unsigned powershell scripts have to be considered undesirable.

I couldn't discover anypoint suspicious in ccleaner or autoruns, yet in Windows Task Scheduler I discovered this:

'powershell.exe -nologo -executionpolicy bypass -noninterenergetic -windowstyle covert -EncodedCommand' is schedubrought about run at 10:51 PM eexceptionally day - After motivated, repeat every 08:00:00 for a duration of 1 day.

I'm assuming this is the concern and also is safe to disable?
