I have some software on a usb stick. When I load it, it adds a file to the install list. This contains four Trojans. I cannot, (do not know how to) get into the program to delete this file. I can delete it when it installs, using Malwarebytes, but when I try to install it again, the file pops open. Is it possible to delete the virus from where it is hidden in the program, or is that very complicated?
Thanks for your reply, unfortunately MBAM did not find anything. Neither did Superantispyware, not in the program. SAS found the problems in the pop out file, and deleted them, but when installed again, the problem file was back. This is why I was wondering whether it was possible, someway, of removing it from the program. No big deal if not, I will just delete everything.
Yes, done both, with current updates. The pop out file is hidden in the program folder and even though I can delete it when it opens, I cannot get into the program to find it in there. Neither can the anti malware and spy software.
It was a zip, but I have unzipped to the usb stick. As it is a 'Portable file' I have run the program from the stick. This is when the virus popped out. I can delete the file that pops out, but next time the program runs, the virus comes out.
I think it is easier to down the wee eddie route and format the stick, after removing the other things I have on it.
Thanks all, seems like it will impossible to get into the program files to delete the file that keeps coming out.
