    Thanks for this Don, We have actually had one person in the dealership contract this virus on a business computer, this will help myself and the IT manager get rid of it in another instance. I know now that I need to check this person’s computer because they said that either avast or spybot had removed it, not so sure now after seeing what it takes to remove it. Thank You

    those “RKill” files work on all sorts of this type of junk. it kills, terminates, shuts down the malware which then you can install, update and run the other programs to scan & remove for the most part.

    I killed he process with RKill, then went looking for it in the “User/Appdata folder as instructed above. That usually where this type of malware hides itself.

    Spybot will remove it also, but takes longer to run thru, Malwarebytes short scan will find it much quicker.

    Many of this crap loads up even in Safe Mode,,, so thats where RKill comes in handy.
