    • Following the Guide: UPDATED 8-step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions creates a common beginning for an initial assessment.

    • Seeing is believing - complaining of excessive popups
      • Without supporting logs, anything caught by HJT is used to suggest changes.
      • However, the MBAM and/or SAS logs will improve diagnosis of this threat.

      • HJT Scan - nothing to fix

    Perhaps making note of the most frequent popup being thrown at the computer will characterize the threat.
