Rapid Media Converter/Rapid Media Converter Browser.exe real names. I uninstalled 2 times thru control panel and kept coming back. Now it does not even show up in the programs list to select anymore! I delete the keys containing "rapidmedia" in the registry but there must be more names/keys etc. As soon as I open either my outlook mail or I.E. browser it pops up some add and down at the bottom it says Rapid Media Converter right on the popup. I read somewhere that it resides in the browser cache. How do I find it and eliminate it????
You can go into Internet Explorer and click on 'Manage Add-Ons' and disable it. In addition, you may try this reputable Removal Guide:Remove Ads by Fast Media Converter virus (Removal Guide)
Also clear your Internet Explorer/Other Browsers Cache, as explained in that Removal Guide.
All the Best

OK Open IE and go to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced tab and click Reset.
It will give options, tell it to delete everything. Click Apply, OK etc.
Close and reopen IE.
All it's cache should have been deleted by the system and you will then have to go into Tools/Manage Add-Ons to re-enable any add-ons you need.
You will have to re-log in to any websites as that stuff will have all been forgotten by the browser.
Also do a Disk Cleanup via Control Panel > System & Maintenance > Administrative Tools > Free Up Disk Space.
I have run disk cleanup, including system files, since I have been dealing with this. I also ran CHKDSK from the CMD line. Nothing abnormal found and there's nothing in the bios says "sfc /scannow".
