Has anyone come across this threat and if so how is it removed permanently? Secret-Squirrel 10:43 02 May 2014 Try running your AVG scan in Safe Mode. Most malware infections can't run in that mode so AVG stands a better chance of eradicating this pest successfully. This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
