    You'll have to move it out of Program Files, but windows won't let you do that. If you can't change the Properties of the Folder that it is in, and the file itself, so that it isn't 'read only', then you may have to end up calling microsoft to find out what system they're...

    Go to folder properties initially, and check " view hidden files and folders", Ignore the prompt that you will destroy the entire world if you do this, and then go into the folders that you use and under properties, remove the 'tick' from hidden. If you're kind of OCD li...

    AVG and Malwarebytes can do the same thing, and they don't eat resources. You can even run them concurrently.

    Norton, or Mcaffee will identify each other as 'viruses' and AVG as well. I ran Norton with AVG,and while AVG could tell that Norton was and anti-virus, Norton was not so discriminating. The two programs wound up eating my system resources and the protection was no bett...

    Malwarebytes is designed to function with AVG. The two companies arranged it that way, because malware is sometimes not detected by AVG when it sits in a browser.

    the malware damaged your malwarebytes installation. Happened to me too, and all AVG can do is remove the infected files. You just have to remove/reinstall malwarebytes. The virus writers know that malwarebytes will stop their virus-like program, and so they write in a ...

    The reason is that most virus writers are lazy. They take the tools that you describe and use the code as instructions for their viruses. It sucks, i know, but if you could declare a file, 'safe', and it sat resident, then some wag would tag their virus so that it sat r...

    Probably a "Trojan". Chrome will tell you when there's an update, and if you want to you can install it. I've never had them say I "needed" an update, even when I did.

    I got malware from "Windows update" on one occasion, It was a temporary problem, caused by someone hacking into the Redmond Supercomputer. Not a very bright hacker, as the guys at Microsoft didn't sleep till they got him.

    go into your task manager, and shut down any 'services' that you find which have any relation to that file. If it still shows to be running, you may have to look at processes.

    Absolutely! I've continued using AVG and have had none of the problems described herein. I've found I don't even need Malwarebytes. I have avoided IE, as it loads and saves malware, and mozilla is better, but Chrome does all i need it to do, and I don't mind the spywar...

    The first thing which comes to mind about this intrusive malware is simply that it is advertised as a FREE REMEDY to problems over whelming my computer corrupting everything in sight leaving me so very very vulnerable and it is allowed to remain up and running to infect a...
