    How do I remove Segurazo PUP?

    The commonest suggestion is to use control panel/programs/uninstall. That's laughable. I have also tried Spyhunter and that doeskin do it (will probably regret downloading that). I have run Malwarebytes in safe mode and it comes up with Segurazo as a PUP to quarantine , however it remains in the list of installed programs.

    Hi folks

    like all these things IMO the best way is simply to restore a CLEAN backup -- I think on these boards we always urge people "Ad Nauseam" to take regular system backups so these things can be eliminated easily.

    I've never been keen on using an already infected computer to run any software to "Cleanse itself" -- It's a bit like telling me as a Private Pilot -- This plane has a defect in it but please take it into the air and then fix it !!!!!

    It might be possible to use some sort of "cleanser" but I certainly would never trust that computer again until Windows had been completely re-installed on it.

    There's a load of FREE backup software out there - one of the most popular here is Macrium. It even on older systems shouldn't take long these days to take regular system backups -- and with SSD's on average hardware and average size windows installations probably only takes around 10 mins.

    Have a look at blocking ip ranges whilst you use your web browser.

    As a test, go to your internet browser settings and see if you can make sure any of browser usage only goes to one page at a time?

    It might be a good idea to completely remove any 'favourites' stored in the browser, any recent history, browser caches. For now too, i would disable any browser plugins or extensions. Another good one is to disable any audio or video, or any media from auto running in your browser.

    Next browser thing for me, would be blocking particular webite host addresses.

    First ones you could have a look at blocking is,

    Cloudflare - The Web Performance & Security Company| Cloudflare
    The World's First Domain Provider | Network Solutions

    This is the host address for

    I googled "Segurazo" and the first three hits were how to remove it. Even though it's possible to screw things up with REGEDIT, I once had a piece of malware that would not uninstall and none of the four AV programs (Norton 360, MBAM, SpyBot, & MSERT) I use would remove it. I ended up searching the registry for the bad app name and deleting any line that had the offending name in it. Of course, as Jimbo opined, I had a system image from prior to the infection as a fall back in case I butchered something.

    I did of course try all the methods mentioned in google hits but none worked. It wasn't even mentioned in the registry at eny of the locations suggested. I ended up deleting the whole folder in Programs (x68).

    I have seen malware that re-installs itself from a registry entry when the folder is deleted, hence the reason for my prowling the registry for entries of that junk. Hopefully, you have ridden your system of it.

    All the google hits refer to the virus/pup as Segurazo but on my infection it calls itself Santivirus but seems to be the same thing.
