w32.sality.w constantly recurring after removal window 8.1 pro

This issue is a recurring one over the past several months. More a nuisance (I hope) than a threat as NIS reports its removal each time. However, it would be good to block it completely. It shows up as a numbered .tmp file. If memory serves me correctly I know there is a way to prevent the recurrence but can't recall the process.

Hello SHO34

Since this has been a recurring problem for months, I would suggest that you stop off at a free malware removal site. They can help you find the root cause of this issue and can help you clean up your computer. Please don't try and fix this on your own. Please stay with the site you pick until they say that your computer is clean. You can pick a site from this list.

Please see this link for an up to date description of these sites plus the addition of a newly listed site formed by one of our successful malware remover users. The new site is listed first in this link.


Please come back and let us know how you made out.
