    Steps taken in order to remove the infection:

    What scan logs have you uploaded to this post?:
    • AdwCleaner scan log
    I have followed recommended protocols to suceessfully remove the "Trovi" malware from my computer.
    But have one minor problem.
    The virus removal programs successfully removed the malware programs, as the program no longer runs on my computer.
    But the malware appears to have left code in the windows startup directing the computer to run files which are now no longer present on my computer.
    Problem is that this causes the following Windows Popup box "Run DLL" to come up , before any other windows startup programs run.

    The Pop up box contains the following wording"

    " There was a problem starting
    C:\Users\LESTER\AppData\Local\Conduit\BackgroundContainer\BackgroundContainer.dll
    The specified module could not be found."

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of the code lines in start up that lead to the popup box, so that it will no longer occur at computer start up.

    Thanks.
    Lester
