Malwarebytes cannot detect Security Defender virus


Recommended Posts

My other PC has the "Security Defender" virus on it, I used Malwarebytes to remove the infection. However, every time the computer restarts the Security Defender window just pops again. I searched for known files associated with it, removed all of those, and now Malwarebytes cannot find any malware, but Security Defender still pops up every time I turn my PC on. Anyone know what I can do about this?
