In certain instances it is best to reboot to Safe Mode with Networking, and run the Malware Tools mentioned. If all else fails, try reverting back to a Restore point when you did not experience this. Simply make certain that you Update Windows/Add-Ons/and McAfee.

Did you try running Malwarebytes (Free)? If not I recommend running it in Safemode with Networking. To keep it (Free) Follow the instructions with-in that Link I provided. I would also run the Junkware Removal tool. I would also clear your Temporary Internet files/Temporary/Cache/History..Etc in all of your Browsers as well.
Please Utilize your Windows Disk Clean utility/or McAfee Quick Clean. Make certain that you have the option to clean the registry (Unchecked) And by all means, please refrain from using any Registry Cleaners. For doing so, can cause more harm than good.
Also you mentioned that you ran the herdProtect scanner. I have been following the reviews of this new scanner that utilizes numerous of other Anti-Virus Engines. This is a relatively new "On Demand Scanner" Unlike Malwarebytes (Free) there have been reports of it not being compatible with your RTS. In some cases but not entirely.
tnx a lot for your adwise. I will check this more closely and follow your recommended asteps. I will come back and reconnect about this.
with best regards,
Dear friends, collegues and behalf of McAfee personal,
Thanks a lot for your enhanced helping hand in this for me actual case --with success !! :-) ( I hope so anyway: in facts I´ve start my pc-engine 3 times, connect and disconnect all things. Im even simulate TracePro to connect to the server .... (huhgh) trust me - this software works !!! Im happy - really !!
My spontanious question is: WHY ?? ( all actions fit to properly really, in real - is it so easy ?)
First; Im quite curious of how these ADW´s existing and upcoming -- then Im supprised of how its expand itself; the answer you find somewhere at "how we protect our self and the software": in these cases we meant ground-force, or out line force, or inta-mediate force.
The threat is already inside your/the software like reader or Intracellular protection (simulation of that what ever) OR your UNPACKER SOFTWARE.
Like our healthcare problematic with herbal /anti-bacterial treatments it look like (and sounds like) it will be treateable and killed... (outside our cell-walls) - but sometimes it will survive bwecause its hide inside (huhgh)
This exactly compareable with synthetics, like e-virus or similar unwanted fragment (cells) behaviour.
My point in this inlay of discussion is:
Pls, create a viritual bubble - install what ever, clean it up, then transfer...
How difficult can it be ? !!!!!!!
( today´s news tell us: you can search, find and destroy, also keep it in safe mode for a while... :-/ then you can extract again AND constrain it and put it in quarantain or whatever ...
- this behaviour is really ridiculous !!! Please -why ?
1/ why its come up in the first place ? (now, I speak about level 2 -3 / read: 2014/2015)
2/ why these "problem" always shows UP 2-4 days before last date of a virus-software outgoing date (and rising in activity until the software is paid) ... ( This will be declared in separete article).
we are approx 200 members in (actual 187) who is in programming-area, we meet this problem every day (more or less) ...not at our own computers to be noticed, but inside our network-members and other customer ´system we see lot of xcrap
Our beleives is: most of these crap is created by existing software/virus protection/malware companys. We beleive also that the solvement is connected to/with acrossed with "who ever" company - we dont beleive - we know !!
Well, Mr CatDaddy,
How to overcoming our view of this subject ? - we are happy to co-operate , but... (
//with best regards
If you, who-ever want to shoot me down; do it on WarThunder Air Combat ----- my nick is PEJU
Just to clarify my thinking...I assume your issues have been resolved? Also did you read the two Articles in which I posted earlier on with-in this discussion? Of how this Pup/Malware may have arrived on your system?
All the best
