    And that, ladles & jellyspoons, is why it's quicker to follow Zeb's 'malware removal checklist process':

    Step 1
    Run Malwarebytes. If successful, bingo. If unsuccessful, go to step 2
    Step 2
    Format and reinstall.

    Will be faster to follow that process than to do all the crap on that checklist.

    Oh - it wasn't a dig! If anything, it highlights just how tedious removal of malware is (and why my approach is always best :twisted:)
