Hello :smile:

Download this program: https://www.ctrlaltdel.dk/Fix_download.exe

and save it on the desktop. Then double click on it (Fix_download.exe).

You may have to allow the program to download files from the web!

The program download the necessary cleaning programs. Once the program
is downloaded, there will be a folder on your desktop named
Fix. – if the instructions not automatically opens, so
double-click "FIX_manual.htm" in Fix folder.

Please follow the instructions and copy the logs here, in this Topic.

Note : Fix_download.exe is detected by some antivirus programs as a "RiskTool" /infection; it is not a virus. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

If necessary, temporarily disable your anti-virus, real-time protection before downloading

Do not PM me with logfiles. They will be deleted.

I downloaded a programme and had this little gem come along! ~tempa.exe. It was a little ballon pop up (Just like an authentic windows one) and was telling me i had a security risk etc etc. I managed to remove it by:
Opening task manager and finding the name of it by guessing the CPU usage when it popped up, i found it was indeed called ~tempa.exe, so i used an anti virus to scan my pc, and it found it, i looked at the file location and went to it, and del;eted anything that even resembled this file, seems to have worked. i checked on a website prevx csi which is an anti virus and they have a list of alias' it goes by such as ~temp.exe ~tempa.exe etc etc. So i just searched the WHOLE of my PC for any files with these names.
