See title. How do I stop this?

I attached a screenshot down below. And here is the log:

A number of postings about this malware on the MalwareBytes forum; i.e. rogue scheduled task:


The rogue scheduled task that was the source of the whole matter has been removed, along with the associated sub-folders. This was a mis-use ( a rogue use) of a Microsoft VBS file thru the exploitation of powershell for the purpose of coin-mining ( it is thought). One may describe it as a obfuscated scheduled task. The one that was on this machine is pretty much similar to the others I have dealt with.

I enabled the settings you mentioned.

Have the Eset alerts stopped?
