    Malware problem

    Malware problem 24th Jan 17 at 9:04 PM
    As above I have a problem with malware. For the last few days I have had a recurrence of the same problem. My laptop is fine in the morning, come the evening the web browsers start playing up and I scan with Malwarebytes and have to remove 27 items. I am guessing there must be something left on my laptop after the items are quarantined but I cannot find it.

    The other evening I thought I would stay ahead of it, scanned it with Malwarebytes and it was clear, half an hour later the problems started up, scanned it again and there was 27 items to be removed. Can't guarantee it is the same every time but there must be a time trigger there somewhere.

    I am using a Windows 10 i3 HP Pavillion, if more details are needed I will have to check.

    This is the detail of what Malwarebytes found tonight.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I can excuse anything on here if it has solved the problem

    The test will be when it is being used tonight.

    Sorry to hijack, but as this is about malware, thought I'd ask a question.

    I'm not that tech savvy, I have AVG ultimate installed, do I need to install and run malwarebytes, and keep it as a programme?
