Do you have any AV installed on your machine, also what is your firewall status enabled/disabled, keeping your machine open to the world without AV and firewall is not advisable, it can be definitely stopped by implementing best security.

As you said that your machine is up-to-date with windows so Microsoft Malicious Removal Tool what you have is latest one, Can we have your machine verified with MRT tool from Microsoft ?

For this, on your run command just type MRT, It will open up a windows ?

MRT ToolCan you run the scan ?

So nothing found on it, I believe that you done the quick scan, can we have a detailed scan (Full Scan) which takes time and will have a detailed report finally if any ?

We had an instance the other day of an infection that I just could not get to go away.  Ran MWB and ComboFix and still something was hanging on.  We run Vipre and it was at least blocking what ever access the infection was trying to make to the outside.  Bottom like is that it turned out to be a root kit infection. The fix for it was to run tdsskiller available for free from the Kaspersky web site:  https://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/disinfection/5350

It doesn't hurt to run it even if you don't have a RK; it will just tell you there are no infections and even if it does find something, it only takes a few minutes to run.

If you don't find anything through MRT then still you can try with Microsoft Safety Scanner.

I suggest MalwareBytes Pro in Protection Mode.MBAM Pro - Protected Mode (click for larger)You can often get MBAM Pro Lifetime keys for $8 to $15 each on sale at Newegg.com.

If you make an account there, you can go to MBAM's page and click the Price Alert button/link, put in your preferred price, and they'll email you when a sale price at or below that amount is about to go into effect.

Hi Deerek11

You said (now punctuated for clarity):

"I have a few systems that keep getting infected about every other day with a lot of malware. I run malwarebytes find about 100 or so."

Could you be more specific about the "malware" please.  When you refer to "100 or so", what exactly are you referring to?  It sounds to me as though MalwareBytes is just finding the usual things like tracking cookies, which is not unexpected on any computer that allows Internet access via a browser.  If you had 100 viruses I seriously doubt that the computers would be running.

Can you provide the names of any specific malware/viruses that are being detected?
