This is happening across all my browsers.  I have followed the instructions given in this group, but the problem still exists.

The Emsisoft program that was recommended to be installed pops up a message when I run Microsoft Edge Browser that I have "JS:Trojan.Cryxsos.261 [B]".


I cannot find what is keeping this Trojan alive.


I do have a Hijackthis log if this would help.

Please...follow Steps 6-8 of Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html and post a new topic in the forum which contains the Prep Guide instructions.


Once that is done, this topic (which I have moved to Am I Infected) will be closed (to avoid confusion) and assistance will be provided via the new topic.


Thanks :).
