Recently i accidentally downloaded and ran jar keylogger. So in fear of it stealing various of my logins i deleted my temp folder, because i had a hunch it had stored some files there for sure. Now every time i start up my computer i get error because i deleted the files which the keylogger used.

heres the picture and text format below
enter image description here

Error: Unable to acces jarfile
/C:/Users/Maru/AppData/Local/Temp/File2633973980103732350.jar

How can i locate or stop the jarfile from running on startup? I can't find any suspicious looking applications from msconfig

I assume you are on Windows OS. You can stop the .jar file from your task manager. Download Process Hacker from here and then kill the process. Also download Microsoft Security Essentials and the free version of Malwarebytes. And then check your system for malware and viruses.


If you have backups of you system you could rollback to that backup
