    I'm new to this site so not sure if this is the correct place to post this.
    After attempting to (re)activate office 2013 ProPlus on a Win10 X64 system a command prompt keeps appearing on every system boot.
    [​IMG]
    I have no idea where it comes from or how it suddenly appeared, and I have no idea of how to stop (delete) it from happening.
    The top of the prompt says bhrudwfi while the path refers to an exe file, sqwbsrtb.exe. When it first appeared it was considered a trojan by HitmanPro and has supposedly been deleted but as indicated the prompt appears on every reboot.
    Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions are welcomed.
    Cheers.

    What did you use for your activation? Some strange file from a warez site?

    MSToolkit, which I've used in the past without any issues.

    Post SHA-1 of your Office 2013 install image, if you didn't use an activator my guess is you used a non-genuine image slipstreamed with xtra "tools"
    :)
    Valid sha-1 of recent and latest Microsoft Toolkit

    Hi. I used Microsoft Toolkit 2.5 which I've used for several years on both mine and my daughters' systems. And have been running Office 2013 since it's inception without any issues until now when it took at least a dozen attempts to (re)activate Office.

    I have looked for a 'clean' copy of the ltests toolkit but without success, and I believe it is no longer being developed.

    5671c239b85ec01c33c4eb155caa0dfa6c57e509 *MTKV250.exe
    Latest and recommended (if you like to use Microsoft Toolkit):
    2b6d05f9cde75049414433994ab5482c2795086d *MTKV264.exe

    Keep in mind:

    Create AV engine exception rule for above tool and use "Settings -> LocalHost Bypass -> Use TAP Adapter"
