I recently discovered that my computer has been infected with a Bitcoin Miner called cvshost.exe. I recently installed MalwareBytes again to try and remove it, but the program didn't tell me a Bitcoin Miner infected my system. I opened up the Task Manager and tried to end the more than 10 different instances of the Bitcoin Miner, and then I'm told that doing so would make my system more unstable.

Even worse, I heard that it will come back after restarting my computer, and it feels like that's the case with me, too. My computer has been making lots of noise from time to time, even though it didn't used to after the hard drive was replaced.

I need some urgent help, how can I permanently erase this Bitcoin Miner from my computer!?

if all these links fails, destory your hard drive or computer: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070524113302AAGP38T

p.s for some reason my words are adding extra space but it looks normal in editor.

See about backing up everything then doing a hard reset. That is, completely starting over with your PC, which you can then put the stuff you backed up on. You can get a 4TB hard drive at Best Buy for about $99 right now here:

Yeah, backup your data and then reset Windows, making sure to delete all files (Don't worry again you backed them up). Then wait and let it finish, then bask in the victory of showing that bitcoin boi what for.

I did some research, and I've never seen that particular process being used with a bitcoin miner, but I did find it being associated with malware. Even if it says ending it may cause system instability, it's definitely NOT a system process. Try ending it and report back on what happens. Considering that it's associated with malware, it'll probably start up with your computer.

You also said that you scanned with Malwarebytes...what were the results?
