Currently I am using Bitdefender AntiVirus plus and every time I restart my computer, BitDefender notifies me that it has a blocked something. I look into further details and it specifies that PowerShell is trying to communicate with an external IP. It will keep popping up until I end both of PowerShell's processes with task manager. The IP has a format of xx.xx.xx.xx/assassin, which seems a little suspicious to me. I've run many virus scans with different programs and am still having the same problem.

Does anyone have any insight into this?

Have you opened any downloaded MS Word documents lately? https://lifars.com/2016/03/cybercriminals-using-microsoft-powershell-create-ransomware/

Thanks for your reply.

The only documents I have opened are ones from school, although I guess that doesn't rule out the fact of a virus. I do have the same symptoms except for the ransomware part. I will runhitmanpro and see if that finds anything
