I have unknown malware located in my registry editer... What can I do to destroy it?


Recommended Posts

Hello. :)

I have been using Malwarebytes Antimalware ever since I have had a computer. I currently have an HP laptop; been using it for 6 years. I have never had any problems or issues. But, I do tend to forget to update my computer a lot. My computer was going extremely slow so I figured I would freshen up. Last week I finally remembered to update my computer and it took about 20 minutes for my computer to restart. (I had 1,200 updates :P) After I updated it, I purposely ran Malwarebytes (quick scan) and I did not catch anything. But the next time I ran the program I had a crap load of potential malware. I have scanned my computer several times and the malware doesn't seem to be getting terminated. I have disconnected all external drives and I have transferred all personal info to another hard drive and deleted it off my computer. I have deleted all cookies, history, passwords... And the same malware shows up on every scan. I scanned my computer with McAfee two times and that did not catch the malware that Malwarebtyes has been getting. The PUPs that were caught are mostly showing up in my registry editer and my AskPartnerNetwork Toolbar. I have looked at my processes, but I really don't know what to look for, so I just left all that alone. What should I do? Below are some pics of where the locations of the PUPs were...

(btw, I JUST made my account so I don't really know how this site works ^_^)
