Finding Discount virus

I have a virus called Findingdiscount.exe

this virus randomly opens tabs to inappropriate content. it is also extremely annoying, and it randomly starts playing bad videos even when my  computer is off. i have done a full system scan with Nortan, and trued to uninstall with ccleaner and revo Uninstaller.

I need help to get it off my computer.

Re: Finding Discount virus

Personally, that said exe is an uninstallable & avoidable Adware. Hit here and learn the difference between computer virus and Adware. And, such an item could be frequently installed alongside sponsored installation package, drive-by, malvertising and more. Apparently, prevention is much more important than workaround and fix.

Please make the best of Task Manager and Revo Uninstaller: check out the Processes tab when you see those annoying desktop pop-up, write down the file/folder path; run then update your Revo (read the "6.1. General" portion), and then add the found path info to the latest version of Revo.

Again, please check out your programs list and rid of all other unknown or unused programs there. I suggest that you perform the actions above in Windows' Safe Mode with Networking using the Admin rights.

Re: Finding Discount virus

I'd suggest paying a visit to one of the free malware removal sites we recommend, rather than attempting any more self fixing.

Pick one, and stay with that expert, until your system is declared clean.
