    Ok, somewhere along the line my brother, on the West Coast, 60+ yrs. old, managed to pick this up. It launches a window with some cryptic Amazon message and says it is now closing the program.
    I don't know how to fix this...? :confused:

    I would recommend getting it off of his computer.

    I searched for it and found nothing. I have since erased and moved a bunch of files to his passport drive. He had a bunch of unused programs and also a bunch of crap on his startup menu.

    Once I run Malewarebytes and defrag, I will shut it off but then I will lose my connection until he gets back home. So, hopefully the startup crap gets rid of it.

    It is back. :mad:

    Trying Win Essentials. Glary, Malwarebytes, registry cleans w/ ccleaner and glary plus disk cleaner, win7 version.

    Opened up half his drive but, still, this Virtual Machine thingy....WTF!!

    I will try combofix another time, he is not home and I don't want to remotely do it and lose the connection, without him watching it.
