SlimCleanerPlus Malware Keeps Coming Back

Recommended Posts


I have detected malware on my computer, SlimCleaner Plus. I did not install this software.

I have currently tried everything to delete this software:

- Avast AntiVirus

- Malware Bytes

- Malware Bytes Rootkit

- ADW Cleaner

- SpyHunter 5 (Free Version) - After a couple scans it stopped detecting the items.

The only program that detected the files was ADW Cleaner. I have uninstalled and reinstalled chrome, deleted firefox, made sure nothing was syncing. And I'm having no luck here. Can someone help me get these programs off my computer? I should also mention that they are not visible as in the Add/Remove apps section of the control panel.


I've attached the latest log file which detects the following PUPs:


-> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\swdumon.sys


->HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\SlimWare Utilities Inc
