Are msa.exe and ygh.exe really malware and what else do I need to do to clean the PC?

One of my kids was looking at some voice changing software - AV Voice Changer I think - he says he started to install it but then decided against it.

i'd give malwarebytes a run - its probably the best malware scanner at the moment, and should root out most things.

"So it looks like there was something else I needed to do - and that was check the network connection.

I discovered that I couldn't get to malwarebytesdotorg, so at first I suspected that the software had changed/set up a proxy, but that turned out not be the case.

The next thing to check was the DNS settings on the network connection. Lo and behold they'd been changed to go through an unknown DNS server. Resetting it to ""Obtain DNS server address automatically"" fixed the problem.

So given that one or the other of these dodgy executables had fiddled with the network settings I'd say its a definite ""yes"" to the question are they malware."
