Apparently my child has been doing some surfing on the family computer and I now see a new process in my taskmanager: b.exe. This "virus" seems to broadcast a radio program over the speakers and it affects my searches on the internet. I've done some system scans and the file seems to have changed the way NAV scans my system. It no longer scans all the files/folders and in some cases scans are instantaneous with no results at all.
I've done research on how to remove this but I've had no luck at all. I'm wondering if anybody has heard of a virus affecting the way NAV works. It seems to have affected the way my malware programs work as well. Second, I'm looking for a reliable way to remove this file. I would love some guidance from the community.
Thank you all.
