Running windows 10 with AVG free and malwarebytes loaded. 3 or 4 time over the last week AVG pops up detecting (1st time) Ranson:win32/Exxroute (following times) Ransomer.LRV and points to a random .DLL file in the windows/temp directory. I took a look today and did not see that or any other DLL's in temp (checked hidden) directory prior to cleaning then I let AVG clean as I have before, I have run Malwarebytes and found nothing, today ran Adcleaner and it came up with a registry threat at HKLM/software/description I searched the registry and was unable to find that combination (I did not have adcleaner repair it). At this point I believe that the ransomer exists on my PC as nothing has been cleaned and it keeps popping up.


Thanks in advance for any help

Let me know if all went well.
