    How Do I Get Rid of SweetPacks


    Good morning, everyone.

    I had a major video card failure. But this morning, I opened it up and gave it a good cleaning (long overdue) and it's running as normal. Since the error I got was driver based and the drivers were current (GeForce 760 GTX), I ran a virus scan. AVG did not pick up anything, but that's why I have MalwareBytes as a backup

    MalwareBytes picked up:

    I quarantined it, deleted it, and ran MalwareBytes again, and I got the same result. I even ran it without pulling up Chrome, and I got the same result. It's like Groundhog Day. What do I do to get rid of this once and for all?

    Thanks for your help.

    You might want to give AdwCleaner a try, it's good at removing PUP's and browser add ons.

    AdwCleaner Download

    Also might be a good idea to run RKill to try & terminate the malware process before you run any scans. DO NOT reboot after running RKill, instead start scanning immediately.

    Good morning.

    I did them both as per your instructions, but when I run MalwareBytes, I get the same viruses popping up. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for your help.

    Okay, I think I may have found the source. I had to get rid of my Amazon Assistant (never really used it anyway) and I think I found the source file, but my last two scans each of AdwCleaner and MalwareBytes came up negative. Thanks again for the help, I really appreciate it.
