    From Avast:
    Because of this ominous description, I suggest you first let your AV program quarantine the virus.

    Then proceed to the Steps HERE to assist with Virus and Malware Removal.

    Hi divapopo

    Do the TechSpot 8 steps: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    Skip no steps (do not install another virus scanner if you already have one, nor install a firewall at all for now).

    Most importantly update MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSptware!

    Before you scan with SuperAntiSpyWare do the below:

    SuperAntispyware extra config

    After installed double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.

    Update the program definitions.

    Click the Preferences button.

    Then Scanning Control.

    In Scanner Options make sure all boxes are checked except #3 Ignore System Restore.. are checked:

    MalwareBytes extra config

    After update but before running
    Click settings and confirm all are Checked.

    I repeat Update these 2 programs.

    Run them and attach their logs.

    Mike

    Oh Whoa!

    Think so Huh!!

    I'll bet not!

    May have fixed what you saw, the obvious!

    Run MBAM UPDATE it click logs, attach all logs back.

    Run SAS UPDATE it click Preferences-Statistics/Logs, attach all logs back.

    Up to you! Your ball!
