Hey guys, I'm having a similar problem. I downloaded a 'codec-v' plugin and I believe it installed Optimizer Pro as well (it randomly appeared shortly after I installed the codec). Whenever I start my computer and run programs, everything will go smoothly for about 10-15 mins and then all of a sudden it will freeze on one screen. I tried running Malwarebytes but it found nothing. I also tried AVG but it can never finish a complete scan before my computer freezes. When I try running AVG in safe mode, I have the same problem as geezy where it says files are locked.
Is there a specific file or something that 'codec-v' is known to infect once installed? Or does it mess with your drivers or w/e because this is my sister's computer and I don't want to f*ck it up. I'm going to try Avast while I wait for someone to respond.
