    Problems in removing a PUA


    My Microsoft Defender Antivirus is detecting a potentially unwanted software as "PUA:Win32/IOBit" with low risk but can't take recommended actions for the same even if I have uninstalled every software by IOBit & removed all the program files and program data of it excluding checking the system32 file because I don't want to corrupt the windows.But the PUA is not getting detected by any 3rd party anti-malware. I have been trying to remove it since 3 days but can't. Please recommend me any solution to this...

    :)

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    Best way to remove problem Malware

    Hi There,

    I am trying to remove a bundle of Malware without success.

    There is a bundle of listed programs which I try to uninstall through the typical Control Panel effort, but they remain listed there:

    Buenosearch Toolbar
    MyPC Backup
    PC Performer
    Speed Test 127
    UnknownFile

    I was looking at this weblink which provides a 5 step process for Buenosearch alone:
    Remove Bueno Search (Removal Guide)

    Not sure how much certain guides can be trusted. One of the first things I read was to download Revo Uninstaller, and I've not heard of it so I'm not sure if it's trustworthy..........
