Malwarebytes blocks Trojan.ProxyAgent


Malwarebytes can detect and remove Trojan.ProxyAgent without further user interaction.

  1. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  2. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  3. Then click Finish.
  4. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  5. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.
  6. When the scan is complete, make sure that All Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  7. Restart your computer when prompted to do so.

Sometimes the presence of Trojan.ProxyAgent indicates the presence of a rootkit that actively blocks Malwarebytes from running. If you notice this is the case, Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit beta should help.
