Name of the file was fcbd.bat, ran at startup, here are the contents:

SET PATH_FCBD=NU
for /f "skip=2 tokens=3 delims= " %%R in ('REG QUERY "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ubisoft\Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon" /v ExecutableName') do (
SET PATH_FCBD=%%R
)

IF "%PATH_FCBD%" NEQ "NU" (
goto:eof
)

regedit.exe /S "F:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\games\Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon\Support\inst\add_regs.reg"

what's up with that? Virus or something? Google search isn't returning anything.

Open up the "add_regs.reg" file that's in the folder in the last line of the batch file and see what reg entries its adding.

Considering it's coming from the "inst" folder (assuming 'Install'), it's probably part of an install script that didn't get deleted properly.

Ok, that sounds about right. Blood Dragon was the first game I installed when trying to figure out how to transfer Uplay games to a new windows install, and I had cancelled the download in Uplay before moving the folder. The add_regs.reg file just added some arguments to start the game in dx11 and english.

Thanks for the help

I'm worse. I would have wiped all my drives and reinstalled Windows.

Why? If I see files I'm curious about I do some quick Google-fu to see what they are. Same with anytime my anti-virus decides to toss up some new dumbass generic "virus".

Paranoid and don't trust things found on the internet. Actually I think of myself as overly cautious than paranoid. But I would have wiped and rebuilt rather than worry. I also look things up to see if it's a legit concern or not. But if I can't find it, then it's time to erase and start over.

Threat detected: uPlay.exe

Quarantine?


:p


If it were me, I would just search the registry, remove all related keys, remove any folders/files, check my running services/processes, maybe, MAYBE run a virus check if I was REALLY paranoid about it. Unless I though it was a nasty rootkit or something, there would definitely be no wiping of Windows. :D
