SAS Operation has been excellent until recently.  Since about 1 month ago the scanning stops and a Windows error pops up: "Windows No Disc"  "Exception Processing Message 0xc0000013 unexpected parameters"

Each time, the scanning stops on the same file, namely C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\MKeeperStat\mkeeper.exe   At this time there have been 76000 total items scanned, with 9600 files scanned.

Pressing  Continue re-starts the scan and it finishes without showing any suspicious files found.  Pressing "Try Again" keeps accessing my A:\ drive which is a 3.5" floppy.  Each "try again" results in the floppy light coming on and starting up (no disk in the drive).  So, I put a disk in A:\ and pressed "try again".  This time the scan continued with no other errors or problems.  So, something about mkeeper.exe and my floppy drive A:\ is causing difficulty, even though there does not appear tgo be any file or subdirectory with "mkeeper.exe" in it. There is no directory called MKeeperStat.  There is no MKeeper.exe installed in the Windows Program List.  Other spyware programs do not generate this Windows exception, and do not pick up mkeeper.exe.  SAS scan logs show all clean scans, no problems or exceptions.

Google searches reveal that mkeeper.exe is spyware and should be removed.

Lately, the downloading of the current spyware database fails, and I have to use the force_update program to do a successful download.  Tech support suggests running the program in safe mode, but nothing different happens. 

What does this Windows No Disc error mean?  SAS is set to scan C:\ only, which it does with this one exception.

What is the fix for this weird issue?

I'm having the same nightmare...


But I can't even get on my windows desktop without it being connected to the internet. 


It's a Chinese Trojan 


This is the original information I found on it, and the guy that was asking for help on another forum just got mocked. Really messed up, when you ask for help and nothing works and ppl can't even take someone seriously...

Found this solution:

windows 10: "mkeeper.exe"

Cliquot accepted in Last updated: 2020-08-23 12:30

Yesterday I recognized a file that wasn't seen before the name "mkeeper.exe". Bad news?

Also, there was "MKeeperStat" in the string. Does anyone know?

Thank you for your quick reply

As my antivirus application (Beta compatible), I install "SuperAnt Ispyware" to support AntimalWare and Malwarebytes, both of which are "Pro" subscriptions. There is also Windows Defender, which is also available for random manual scans. Ccleaner is my maintenance preference
There is also a Pro subscription. I was scanned by all programs and couldn't find the file in question. Make sure which program removed the malware so it wasn't offered. you can not be in. I will rescue my priority suite of resources
from the administrator profile.

I researched this malware and found this information:
