Hi everyone! I love this forum.

Here's my q: don't ask me how, but a program called "mediafinder.exe" is now installed on my computer.

Dell Inspiron15R, Windows 7 Home, Mozilla Firefox and Internet explorer both used.

I've tried a variety of removal tools including malwarebytes, but nothing seems to pick up Mediafinder.exe.

The folder is "Program Files (x86)" but when I try to delete it it tells me that there is no installation package.

Oddly, despite there being no installation package, the program is still running in the background.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone and have a great day!
