Find Malware with Process Explorer

Process Explorer is part of the Sysinternals suite of applications its recently been upgraded, in that upgrade VirusTotal has been added to Process Explorer which allows users to check files running on their computer.

This is very useful for malware analysis and weeding out nasty malware or rogue files on your computer system.

Once you have found a suspicious file, you can upload it virustotal while in Process Explorer, just like I show you in this short video. VirusTotal is a free service that analyzes suspicious files and URLs and facilitates the quick detection of viruses, worms, trojans, and all kinds of malware.

It will scan and detect any type of binary content, for example executable files, PDF file, images, Javascript code, Android APK files and many more.

So once VirusTotal detects a Malware file of your system, you can then kill the process and delete the malicious file.

Process Explorer is packed with useful tools and is more advanced than your standard Windows Task Manager, why not check out my youtube channel and see my use Process Explorer and use it to remove some real nasty infected Malware files.

Just remember, before you can’t submit a file to VirusTotal, until you have to agree to the Terms of Service.




Here is a little guide that shows you how.
