Hello all, this morning I accidently deleted some files and in looking for recovery tools I found one that installed a lot more than just a utility to help recover my data. I tried my best to close and end processess and remove all I could, but still got some weird pop-ups that adblock kind of blocked (pop-up window without anything in it). Some of the pop-ups I see say ElectroLyrics.


I uninstalled something named ElectroLyrics-22 from the control panel but still got some pop-ups. I'd hate to miss anything that the nasty stuff might leave behind.. Can anyone recommend how to clean my PC thouroughly?


Thanks in advance.

Hello -

After you remove the item from Programs and Features, please clean up with these -


Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here
Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.

If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with a prompt to Reboot and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to Restart the computer, please do so immediatly.



Close all open programs as your computr will be rebooted ......

Please download and run RKill by Grinler. A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear.
This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
If a log is produced, save it, or post it back here -

Important: Do not reboot your computer until you complete the next step.

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
* Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
* Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
* Click on the Scan button. (only once)

* After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
* Click on the Clean button. (only once)
* Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
* Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.

Finally -

Please download TFC, or Temp File Cleaner by Old Timer
Usage Instructions:

  • Download TFC from the download link above and save the file on your desktop.
  • Close ALL running applications as TFC will terminate them before attempting to clean up the temporary files.

Hi noknojon, thanks for the reply.

I installed Malwarebytes and ran a quick scan, it found 6 files and it prompted me to reboot, I ran the scan again afterwards and it didn't detect anything. Here's the log file it generated.


Thank you for your help!

Hi -

This may have got it, as it is the .exe of the program.

Do you have ElectroLyrics listed in Programs and Features at all (or any "odd" programs) ?


Have you still got the problem at all ??


Thanks -

EDIT - Open AdwCleaner and hit Clean and it may reboot your computer.

Next, re-open the program and hit the Uninstall button to clean out any items in quarantine and remove the program -

Yes, it seems to have removed everything. Nothing listed in Programs and Features, nothing odd in the list at all. I no longer see any strange ads everywhere. And everything seems to be working just fine.


Thanks again for the help!
