Trojan Agent/ Pop-Up Infection

  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.

    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
