A couple days ago, Avast loaded onto my computer while I was downloading an update for CCleaner. I went to Avast support for help in removing it, as it would not allow me to do it (said I didn't have authorization). At this time, apparently a file called AvLaunch.exe also loaded. It is still there, and it is messing with my computer performance, bigtime. It's killing my battery, starting programs (like Edge) which I have repeatedly turned off, won't let me chat or communicate directly with Malwarebytes, slow load times, etc. I need help. This is further complicated by the fact that I'm currently in Central America where I can't make or receive calls - so I am depending on this forum! I can't use my phone, and I can't use MWB page to email or chat with them. Please help!
Recently Malwarebytes has started flagging "Lenovo Kid's Account" /system/priv-app/KidozOS.apk on my Lenovo Tab 4 8 as malware Android/Trojan.Autoins.C . As far as I know this file has not been changed recently and is not an app that I have ever used. It is a system file, so cannot be uninstalled. Malwarebytes suggests just whitelisting it and says it is disabled, although I'm not sure how to confirm that that is actually the case. Has anyone else seen this? OS is Android 7.1.1, Security patch level April 1, 2018.
