I thought I had posted this before but have seen no replies. I do know that the subject is not totally new and has been addressed here before. I have tried all the fixes that have been suggested: 1. Downloading AVG and running it in the Safe mode 2. Downloading Super Anti-Spyware Professional and running it. 3. I also have SpyBot and have run it various times.
4. I automatically have McAfee Security Center since I use Comcast high speed internet service and McAfee is the one that keeps telling me I have this PUP. They can't remove it by clicking on the window that says I have it. The reply is "that it can't be removed." I have tried their online suggestion which is to boot to "Safe" mode, run their scan and then run AVG scan. Neither works. I have run AVG in both Normal and Safe modes mumerous times, have run Super Anti-Sprware Professional in both Normal and Safe modes many times, have run SpyBot and McAfee in the same manner. NOTHING gets rid of this
warning box. I'm not sure how much negative impact this PUP is having on my computer, but some things are working differently than before (Internet Explorer windows open minimized--never did before. Internet Explorer Help will not display
"Contents and Index".). There was a post stating to try all of the above, and if that didn't work, they had additional options to try. That was the post I previously responded to, but have heard nothing. Would appreciate any and all help in ridding myself of this persistent problem.
