So my PC was running super slow so I decided to run my Kaspersky Total Security program. Except I get a notification the shortcut to the program was invalid and did I want to remove it? So I ran a search on my PC and Kaspersky was no longer on it!!! So I had to reinstall the program and got errors with the license - it did pop up that it disinfected a trojan. I decided to run a full scan but wonder if it can actually remove this “mystery” trojan if the trojan can uninstall it! Freaking out - not gonna lie.

I see that you edited your post. I am glad that you changed your mind, and that youare going to contact the people who can explain, because I cant explain. 

 

 

So update. I did contact the link and described the situation and I got a response that they closed the case due to “Bad Description”. I was pretty explicit so I don’t know what they had an issue with understanding -  A  Bit mining trojan literally uninstalled your program off my computer dudes. FURTHERMORE, I bought and installed Malwarebytes and I have attached an image of what they cleaned off my PC WHILE KASPERSKY WAS STILL INSTALLED!!!! Guess who is not using Kaspersky anymore.
