Like most of the people that sign up, BC is not a new site to me. I have been downloading the tools from this site for years, but I saw this on the list of UNITE schools not to long ago and decided to sign up in hopes to enroll in the malware removal school at some point. A little about me, I work at a computer repair shop as a technician and the main thing I do it, you guessed it, remove malware from computers. I also work under the owner of the company and we have many contract with businesses around the country as well clients with specific technological needs. I feel like I excel at the hardware aspect of computing but dealing with software is like 60% of what I do. You will probably see me in the hardware and security sections!

Greetings! So removing malware is what you do. I have had this Japanese porn pop-up that would not go away. I included the web site in ... host file as I learned from the Internet, but every time I start the computer, the job started running, and I get two windows opened. I checked the task manager and I found 'Microsoft ® HTML Application host' which are obviously related to it.

If I close the windows, it keeps coming up. But if I minimize them, then I get two icons on my task bar, taking up space. Any suggestion as to how I my get rid of the pop-up? Thanks. I did post under 'Japanese porn pop-up'.

Well if a computer came in with something like that I would first remove any programs that didn't belong, run Malwarebytes, and scan with whatever AV was going to be put on it. Other than that there is AdwCleaner, Junkware Removal Tool and HitmanPro, all of which would probably help. Also resetting whatever browsers you use to default settings will help.
