Hi, I got infected a few months ago. Long story short they can literally see my screen and all my information, clear signals of remote access, etc. I already explained aa bit on my orevious pot so want tell all my story again and will just describe my experience on the RVE. First off it shows 3 keyboards and like 6 hubs on the bios even when I just have a keyboard and a mouse plugged in. Windows takes around *55 gbs after I install it, 2017 gpu drivers are installed even when I install a 2015 version of windows 10, performance is terrible, seems like Im using a core2duo. Cant use my ocmputer because of this. All this is happening since January, tons of BIOS versions tested, always the same issues. Today I updated to the latest version. Formatted using secure erase and same results. * Clearly something big is going on here, either they managed to edit some BIOS modules to work in a malicious way or they changed the firmware of one of the devices.
Can an Asus employee test a dump of my firmware and see if he/she can reproduce these same issues. Already tried everything since the day Imgot infected and Im still lost. Thanks.*
The bios sees some USB devices as keyboards its nothing to worry about, there no way a virus can get into your bios only if you have flashed a bios downloaded from other places than asus, but even then windows would see a issue with secure boot.
You can reset your BIOS to factory defaults. You can even download and install (flash) a clean version from your motherboard page. But this shouldn't be necessary and (if you don't know what you're doing) could actually cause more problems by breaking things that already work. Write down all BIOS settings you don't understand (or can't easily figure out) before changing or resetting anything. The chances of your BIOS being "infected" or "compromised" with some kind of malware or backdoor are virtually insignificant, but you may choose to overwrite it with a clean version anyhow "just to be sure".
And your final option is to contact Microsoft Support. You might be able to convince them to issue you a new Windows Product Key. Or you may be told there's nothing they can do until you buy a new one.
