Ok, helping a user who's MBA-M scan found and removed 2 PUP.Optional.Conduit entries. She ran DDS scanner but it did not show the Installed programs in the Attach.txt log.
She ran AdwCleaner without difficulty, it found and removed 4 folders and 30 registry keys. 29related to Conduit and one for Zugo.
She is using AVAST Free, it IS turned off completely.
She then tried Junkware Removal Tool, but it would not run, all she saw was a brief black flash and then nothing.
It was "suggested" though I did not have her do it because I wasn't sure if it would work, to rename the file and try again.
Instead she removed JRT, downloaded and ran Rkill, which found nothing, immediately downloaded a new copy of JRT with the same results, quick black flash and that was it. She is running as Administrator too.
Had only seen one other time when JRT would not run, sometime last year and the fault was in the program. I ran this one myself without difficulty today.
