Avast came up and asked me if I should deny or allow the execution of Riaiccape exe. Then I realized that my computer has been infected with such a virus, I was anxious about this and I tried everything I know but it just wouldn’t go away. Then I ran malwarebyites hoping it could delete the virus. It did delete a bunch of malwares but just despite of Riaiccape exe, which I aimed to delete. Malwarebyites even failed to find the file. I highlight this file and run a check on it with either avast or malwarebyites, the latter one said there was no infection and the former one said the file couldn’t be scanned and that it was a decompression bomb. I even asked some of my friends who are talented with computers but with no luck to remove the infected folders and files. Is there any other way to overcome this problem and help me remove the damn thing?
