Virus from just opening spam mail? - Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Help - BleepingComputer

Hello

I recieved a clear fake mail from paypal. Not sure what the intent of the mail was. I accidentally pressed on it (opened it) when trying to report it.

I was using the outlook webmail (outlook.com) on a PC.

The mail contained of a short sentence urging me to open the attachment in the mail, which was all the text in the mail. The attachment was a .docx I could see when hovering the mouse over it.

I never pressed anything in the mail and went back to the inbox and reported the mail.

But can I have gotten a virus just from opening that mail in the outlook webmail (outlook.com) on a PC?

 

I have run some antivirus scans; rkill, malwarebytes, hitman pro, adwcleaner, housecall, avast, windows scan.

Hitman pro said it didn't find any threats but it found over 500 suspicious files?

rkill found two files called "inetcache"

Adwcleaner found two files, "preinstalled.asusproductregistration".

No antivirus scans found anything they called a threat, but several suspicious files.

Avast, malwarebytes, housecall and windows scan: didn't find any threats or suspicious files at all.

 

Is it possible to get a virus from just opening a fake paypal mail with a .docx that I DID NOT click? In a webmail (outlook.com) on chrome?

Thanks in advance!


Trojan found in Malwarebytes, but Virus effects still linger - Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Help - BleepingComputer

Hello!
I was just downloading some audio files online from a forum when I noticed it asked my permission to install. I thoughtlessly clicked yes. Before the installation was complete I ended the process second guessing my decision.
I just ran Malwarebytes which detected 2 Trojan files, and Windows Defender also detected 1 suspicious file. I quarantined and deleted all of these. I then decided to check my drive for any leftover files that had been recently installed. Noticed something was installed in the Windows Defender folder. Hidden files. So I tried to open them. I noticed my settings had been changed, specifically show hidden folders and files. The option was unchecked but also greyed out, which I found very strange. It didnt allow me to change it.

I suspect lingering traces of the virus are still installed and would love help to fix this. Thank you so much for any assistance! :)
