I did not get this Trojan until I played Facebook games. Now I cannot figure out how to get rid of it. It keeps on changing my homepage to a blank page. All games have been deleted Can I just leave it quarantined. I do not see the option to delete file . All scans Windows defender as well as McAfee do not detect this virus.
It seems that you have picked up a (PUP) generally classified as a "Potentially Unwanted Program" In addition bundled in with it ,was a Browser Hi-Jacker. I recommend Running the Latest McAfee Getsusp Tool, please remember to enter your Email Address under "Preferences" before scanning.
Upon completion of the scan, you should receive a automated reply confirming your submission.
With the confirmation there should be a Work Item ID # . Please allow the appropriate time for your submission to be analyzed (4-5) days. Should it be the case your issue is not resolved, please post back the Work Item id #, and we can quite possibly contact a Tech from McAfee Labs to expedite the process.
I would then run Malwarebytes (Free) version Only. Do not accept the (Free Trial) or activate. Restart after running the scan. I would then proceed to run AdwCleaner and restart after running the scan. All of these Superb ( Free) Tools can be found in the following Link:
In addition, you may find the following article created by Fellow Moderator Hayton very informative:
In regards to removing the Detected Item from Quarantine.. Open your McAfee UI, Select Navigation (Top Right), then scroll down to Quarantined and Trusted Items/ Quarantined Items/Quarantined Potentially Unwanted programs/select and delete/Restart.
