If in wrong topic I will remove

I have Windows Defender and Avast Security, since yesterday I keep getting a notification saying that a threat was stopped. Takes me into Windows Security and says it was this:

Trojan:Win32/Ludicrouz.W

Comes up every 10 minutes and now it's annoying. Done multiple scans and it sayd the only file its affecting is a temporary Avast file.

And help anyone?

I would scan with Malwarebytes. Free version is enough. Keep us posted.

I uninstalled Avast and installed Malwarebytes and BitDefender. Done a scan on both of them and it couldn't find anything. The Windows notification has stopped but now everything I go on Google Chrome Malware bytes pops up saying it stopped a Trojan.

Well, thats a "first". Looks like you have something embedded in your browser. Run adwcleaner! Usually very effective.

Ok, I installed this Adware cleaner and ran it. It found 4 threats and deleted 4 registry files and I restarted my PC. I opened up Chrome and the Malwarebytes notification popped up again stopped Trojan threat from Loudjacks.com (C:\Progrtam Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application|chrome.exe)

Loudjack its a random name or are you familiar with that website?

If that happens accessing that specific site is 'normal' for malwarebytes to have false positives. You can always try another. For instance, HitmanPro, free trial. Usually very good in the trojan area.

Or, after the scan and cleaning up, reset you chrome to its originals settings. (Settings->Advanced->Reset settings to their original defaults). Malwarebytes can be only showing trojan 'remains' (It happens)

Good luck

Wait, do you have Windows Defender and Avast both running at the same time? If so, having two anti-virus software running together is a recipe to strangeness.

I tried disabling Windows Defender for Third party software but didn't work so I just left it.

No I haven't. The only things I've installed recently are from steam.

googled it and saw nothing related other than its "variants"

how about browser extension, or bloatwares

Get rid of Avast then. You really don't need any third party anti-virus software at this point.

If you are using Windows 10, then its recommended to only use Windows Defender and its well equiped to take care of all such virus and malwares. I would suggest remove everything and only keep an updated and active windows defender.

Windows Defender Antivirus detects and removes this threat.

and if you ever doubt there is something bad on your system you can simply scan with Windows Defender and Microsoft Safety Scanner (Free) and run a full scan it might find other hidden malware.
