A while ago I got stuck with "Download Beast" on my computer.

It doesn't show up in my list of programs to uninstall on the windows uninstaller thing.
Malware bytes doesn't find anything, nor does Superanti spyware.

in the task manager, its process seems to be DownloadBeast.exe
and I have no clue how to remove it.

Thanks you

Hello ,,End that process and if any of these are there

Now run
Revo Uninstaller:

Revo Uninstaller is more thorough in deleting programs on your computer than using the Add/Remove option in Windows. Since it is a more powerful tool, please be sure to follow the instructions carefully.
  • Please download and install Revo Uninstaller Free
  • Double click Revo Uninstaller to run it.
  • From the list of programs double click on the listed program to remove it
  • When prompted if you want to uninstall click Yes.
  • Be sure the Moderate option is selected then click Next.
  • The program will run, If prompted again click Yes
  • When the built-in uninstaller is finished click on Next
  • Once the program has searched for leftovers click Next.
  • Check the items in bold only on the list then click Delete. You may have to expand some folders by clicking the "+" mark.
  • When prompted click on Yes and then on Next.
  • Put a check on any folders that are found and select Delete
  • When prompted select Yes then Next
  • Once done click Finish.

Simple approach...do a search of all files (after making all file extensions and system files viewable) for the stated file. DownloadBeast.exe .

Let us know if such exists and the file path reflected.

I went to my "Program Files X86" and saw a folder called Download Beast and deleted it and it seemed to work well for me.
