    Hello

    I have a persistent issue with this piece of shit malware.

    Upon booting Microsoft Security Essentials warns me of the presence of win32/Coin Miner. After removing it I re-boot to find the malware is still there and MSE prompts me to remove it, I re-boot and it's still there...

    Really need help on this one

    Thanks

    Have you tried other, more powerful anti-virus programs?
    Do a scan with MalwareBytes if you don't want to download a whole new anti-virus.

    I'm currently doing a complete scan with that Malwarebytes anti-Malware program, should take some time.

    Coinminer? Does the virus actually hijack your PC for bitcoin mining or something? That's actually pretty crafty.

    Looks like that's exactly what it does. http://www.microsoft.com/security/po...in32/CoinMiner

    OP, your donating CPU time to make someone else money. How nice of you.
