Just got a new HP Pavilion laptop running Windows 8 and it has already become infected with the Advance Elite malware which is causing continual pop-ups in my web browsers. Norton doesn't seem to find or repair this software.


I have ran the aswMBR scan but was unable to run Farbar as my Norton detected it was unsafe and deleted the file.


This is the log from the aswMBR scan:-


aswMBR version Copyright© 2014 AVAST Software

10:55:38.748    The log file has been saved successfully to "C:\Users\Stephen\Desktop\aswMBR.txt"



This is a really annoying piece of malware and any help or advice will be most gratefully received.

Well I just ran ADW Cleaner and it seems to have done the trick. Brought up a whole host of Advance Elite, Astromenda and Pokii files to delete. I did and hey presto everything seems o.k.


Will report back if it all goes pear shaped again.
