    I got badly infected with appround.us, Open It, Right Surf and Adaware after a failed install of the PAID FOR version of Teracopy!!

    Teracopy DO have a tech support section but DO NOT respond to any issues relating to the infected installer - which was downloaded directly from their own company site - not a third party.

    And they DO NOT refund the $20 USD for the failed Teracopy download either.

    The infestation from appround. is causing popups and slow down and malwarebytes doesn't detect it nor avg nor windows essentials. i saw the codecs ad and brazilian girl dd in downloads folder, don't know how they were dowloaded. Will me deleting from file location on pc get rid of them or is there a removal tool?

    Dunno if anyone else has experienced this, but just a while ago when I opened up bittorrent, a task - named something like "pcperformer bittorrent", just smaller than 700 kB - was downloading. I don't ever recall opening a torrent file or clicking a magnet link associated with that task, so I removed it without hesitation. Now I'm left to wonder - is this some kind of a newer, more aggressive breed of trojans?

    Try ESET antivirus. Download the trial version. See link below or google it.

    annoying and a nuisance!!

    Continuously sent this type of 'pop up' which only seem to want my bank details!!

    I have the awful feeling that they are downloading malicious software to make my computer not work correctly!

    Isn't that illegal??

    Anti-virus McAfee-GW-Edition has detected the malicious code "Heuristic.BehavesLike.Exploit.CodeExec.O" in the PCPerformerSetup.exe file.

    NO Antivirus EXCEPT Eset finds a virus when tested by TWENTY programs????

    So, either Eset is superior to ALL OTHERS or it's a false positive.

    I'd believe the 19 over the one.
