This was detected by Malwarebytes. Googling the subject I found at least 6 completely different removal instructions posted in various forums online.

Please advise the best way to remove this Trojan.

 When you run Malwarebytes, it reports its findings.  At the bottom left corner of the window is a button that says Quarantine all.  If you click that and follow the onscreen instructions, it will quarantine everything it has reported.


Good luck.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
