  1. Hello!

    Recently, my computer has been infected with an adware or pop-up or trojan agent or whatever it is called.

    Symptons have been...
    - 660PvCLY.exe keeps on starting up after a while
    - Internet Explorer seems to show up in the task manager whenever it starts up
    - If left alone, pop-up ads will show up after a while

    I went through the eight steps and the Malware Byte does remove some of the files. My Symantec Antivirus gets rid of some as well.

    Along with the three logs, I also attached a list of files that my Symantec antivirus has deleted.

    Help would be much appreciate. Thank you for your time =)

    Welcome to TS.

    This instruction was posted in a response from mflynn. MBAM tool is used.

    ... to remove this file start MABAM don't scan click More Tools-Run Tool
    Copy and paste the line in the box to "File Name" and click open.
    Note: this runs another MalwareBytes stand alone program "FileAssassin" for deleting hard to delete or in use files.

    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\660PvCLY.exe
    If not successful in normal mode, then try safe mode.

    Following that, update MBAM & SAS. Re-post logs.

    It should be noted that it was assumed that these tools were run in normal mode.

    FYI reference to mflynn post
