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.

@exile360,

Thanks much for the detailed response. I have the log files prepared but it is not clear to me what you mean by the "malware removal area." I do not see a forum with that name listed here.

Thanks,

-Moirty

If you click the second link in my reply above, it will automatically take you to the correct area to add a new topic/post as instructed; all you'll have to do after clicking it is give the topic a title and type out the description of the issues and attach the logs.
