    Startup batch file

    When Windows 10 starts, a DOS window appears, runs: C:\Users\Brian\AppData\Local\854e8f7.bat , then disappears.

    The .bat file contains:
    start "plqcknRlU67iM4TfEXQq" "%LOCALAPPDATA%\b183312\88d4f24.21b2bbd3"

    There are two files in C:\Users\Brian\AppData\Local\
    88d4f24.21b2bbd3 which is a 21B2BBD3 File

    I tried deleting the C:\Users\Brian\AppData\Local\ folder using Windows explorer and LockHunter but it reappears immediately.

    It doesn't seem right.

    What is going on?
    How can I fix it?
    Should I worry?

    Thank you.

    It really sound like you have a virus or some sort of malware. Run a virus scan if you have an antivirus installed. In any case, I would also suggest downloading Comodo Rescue Disc and burning it to a DVD or making a bootable USB drive with it and running an offline virus scan of your system. This will be most likely to find and remove any infections.

    OR you can download @Kyhi bootable disk image from this site:

    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - - Windows 10 Forums

    You can then use this bootable usb stick to check you desktop for malware....
