Both Malware Bytes and SUPERAntiSpyware scan and disinfect resident memory malware, with the registry and file structure items.

The malware has to be written to memory while the operating system is running, so the root of the problem lies in something being initiated outside of RAM because every time power is severed to memory all information is lost... i.e. at shutdown.

I would download, install and update but not run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

Next boot into Safe Mode by using the F8 key during startup. Don't use msconfig to boot into safe mode as this can cause boot loop.

Safe mode prevents malware writing itself to memory making it easier to ID and remove.

While in safe mode run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and remove anything it finds.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware has a free version, that's all you need.

Hmm..... I just uninstalled then reinstalled the downloaded copy with no fuss. No serial needed.

Delte the copy you have downloaded and click on the link below for a copy from bleepingcomputer:

If you still have trouble installing the program try installing it in safe mode. Use the F8 method described above to boot into safe mode.

The PAID for version needs to be paid for to activate.

The only difference between the paid version and the free version is automatic updates and right click scanning for files and I believe online support. The free version is just as effective as the paid version.

Malwarebytes is an antimalware application not an antivirus program.

If you are after an entirely free antivirus program there are plenty on offer.

My preference is Avast, but you can look at others such as AVG and Antivir.

I take it Malware bytes fixed the initial problem?
