So I had been dealing virus for a lot of times but this one just seem to be very persistent i should say. The Adware keeps coming back no matter how hard I tried. I had been running registry check, booting in safe mode and do a recovey state and a lot more stuff like using 5 antivirus to handle this not to mention searching one by one files to search it's core but to my demise I couldn't find it's core till now. Any help for cleaning this adware? cause i had done a factory reset and it was still here :")). Thx before hand
Hello, I am having trouble with PUP.Optional.Legacy in Chrome. Tried multiple scanners, only AdwCleaner detects it I've been battling this beast for a while now. What I've done so far: I've clean installed windows twice. I have reset chrome settings multiple times. I have reset chrome sync multiple times.I have deleted cookies, preferences and all files from %LOCALAPPDATA% for Chrome. I have installed Chrome from the offline installer. I have cut the internet connection and did all of those steps again. I've narrowed it down to this: At first I thought it comes from my profile/sync. But I have done the steps below, without internet connection and it keeps coming back. It is somehow connected with the search engines/search providers of Chrome and/or Chrome settings. I can clean it with AdwCleaner, or manually remove the search engines from Chrome settings and it seems to disappear. But even if it does, after a few minutes, Chrome starts lagging, freezing a lot, and loading pages very, very slowly. I can tab out of Chrome and go to another browser, enter the web site and it will fully load, while in Chrome it is still loading. I run a scan with AdwCleaner - nothing, but I know it's there, my browser is lagging so bad... Here how it always comes back. Every time I click on "Reset settings" in Chrome, the adware/virus comes back. This additional search engines appear in the settings: And after a scan, these are the results: And here is the Log File from the scan: AdwCleaner[S70].txt I am not smart enough to handle this on my own. I need help.
