TheBrightTag Keeps Returning


Recommended Posts

AdwCleaner is finding and, presumably, cleaning TheBrightTag from my computer. However, after 1-7 days of usage, I find that my computer is again reinfected. I can usually tell because the system slows noticeably.

My Win10 PC is fully up-to-date and I generally think of myself as a fairly safe user (I use VPN on public sites and am careful about phishing and similar attacks). Nevertheless, I cannot figure out how to completely eradicate this thing.
