It started with pop ups that went past our pop up blocker. then it showed up in our 'active connection' log in our firewall. I have installed the latest virus and malware scans, but nothing seems to find it or remove it. Now I'm getting scripting errors and more pop ups. We're on a restricted bandwidth usage plan, and this thing has hijacked our system so that I have taken to unplugging the modem when the computer is off. Any solutions???

Here is a description of your .exe here. And with that being said, I would follow the link that is at the top of this forum next to a blue question mark. I'll add the link here for ease of finding it: Start Here!

Go to Start > Control Panels > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the following programs if listed:
PuritySCAN By OIN, OIN, OuterInfo or similar.
Reboot and delete this folder if found:
C:\Program Files\PurityScan\

If you do not see any icon for "OIN" or "(program) by OIN" in Add/Remove Programs, please do this:

Download and run the Purity Scan uninstaller.
This is the same Purity Scan stand-alone uninstall program mentioned by Symantec under removal instructions.
1. Save the Uninstaller to your desktop.
2. Double click on the OiUninstaller.exe icon on your desktop.
3. Click on "Run".
4. Enter the four digit code that is displayed and click on "Uninstall".
5. Click on "Ok" and reboot your computer.
6. Then delete this folder if found:
C:\Program Files\PurityScan\

Then if you still are having problems please follow Da Bleepin AniMod's instructions.
