  • For the love of God, someone please answer this person. I can't get rid of it either and I've pretty much scoured the entire computer searching for the culprit. I got a lot of it, but it is still there.... Thanks for nothing AVG.

  • Try running a spyware 3rd party program on it like malware bytes or one of your choice

    cause that's what it sounds like if it were a real Trojan

    A would be listed some where on the internet

    B would be more info about it

    also try hitting (control alt delete =to reach task manager then troll to the start up tab and look there) to see if it is starting up there if not

    go into the control panel and navigate to the administrator tool then to services to see if it is residing in your services if not then more then likely one of your friends is pranking you

    Go to this PC open to a folder view click on view and check mark hidden items then open to address below and see if the predator is laying in there if so then just delete it 

    C:\Users\Windows____Admin___1\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
