A piece of Malware keeps coming back every time I restart

Unread postby marshedpotato » May 26th, 2015, 8:01 am

Hi everyone.

I originally made this post over on the Malwarebytes forum but after giving someone my PC logs my post was removed due to piracy because completely seperate from my issue, I had an episode of game of thrones in my Downloads folder. Hopefully you guys aren't so judgemental.

For the past few months I have had this problem. Any help with this would be very much appreciated.

Some time ago I got a PUP on my machine. Nothing too bad, just a browser hijack called Trovi. I ran a Malwarebytes scan there and then, and it found and removed Trovi. Since then, I have never experienced any of the symptoms of Trovi. My computer is working fine and as far as I can tell there is no Trovi anymore, however every time I do a Malwarebytes scan, it finds a Trovi file. Here is a picture of what Malwarebytes finds: http://goo.gl/d9vf71

If I tell Malwarebytes to remove it, and then do another scan, it doesn't find anything. However, if I restart my computer and then do another scan, Malwarebytes will then find the same "PUP.Optional.Trovi.A" in the same exact location. It comes back every time I restart!

Like I say, as far as I can tell this Trovi file isn't actually doing anything. My browser has been completely normal ever since Malwarebytes removed it the first time. I'm just concerned about what on earth it could be doing in the background and how the heck it keeps managing to come back every time I restart. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of it short of reinstalling Windows?

Here is a Malwarebytes log file from one of the many times it has detected the Trovi file: https://goo.gl/acJJr2

Many thanks in advance

May I draw your attention to the topic: ALL USERS OF THIS FORUM MUST READ THIS FIRST, which you should have read before posting for help.
The section here explains our stance on illegally obtained software.

If you wish to receive help from us, you must remove any and all of the following from your computer:
  • Illegal software
  • Cracked software
  • illegal software key generators

Once the software and/or keygens have been removed, if you still need help, please start a new thread... include a link to your closed topic and include NEW DDS logs :
  • DDS.txt.
  • Attach.txt.
  • Details of the problems you're experiencing.
Wait for a new helper. Do not reply to your topic before a helper has replied.

This topic is now closed.
