Hello ozzy1342 :smile: <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/>We can remove it manually -> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB" lang=EN-GB>Please download combofix:<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes"> <SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt" lang=EN-GB><SPAN style="COLOR: black">Here<SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB" lang=EN-GB><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <br/> <br/><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB" lang=EN-GB>Before Saving it to Desktop, please rename it to alg.exe to stop malware from disabling it.<o:p></o:p> <br/> <br/><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB" lang=EN-GB> <o:p></o:p> <br/> <br/><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB" lang=EN-GB> <o:p></o:p> <br/> <br/><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB" lang=EN-GB>Now, please make sure no other programs are running, close all other windows.<o:p></o:p> <br/> <br/><SPAN style="COLOR: black" lang=EN-GB> <br/>Please double click on the file you downloaded. Follow the onscreen prompts to start the scan. <br/>Once the scanning process has started please DO NOT click on the Combofix window or attempt to use your computer as this can cause the scanning process to stall. <br/>It may take a while to complete scanning and this is normal. <br/> <br/>You will be disconnected from the internet and your desktop icons/toolbars will disappear during scanning, do not worry, this is normal and it will be restored after <br/>scanning has completed. <br/> <br/>Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted. <o:p></o:p> <br/> <br/><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB" lang=EN-GB>Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please post it to your next reply<SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt" lang=EN-GB><o:p></o:p> <br/> <br/><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 9pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt" lang=EN-GB> <o:p></o:p>
