Answer
Dear;

It seems like your Antivirus Program does not kill the malware. Still it is function by installing a program and showing that it is legitimate software.

I suggest you to reboot your computer system in safe mode and scan the computer. remove any unnecessary application installed using control panel add remove software.


hope this will solve the problem
regards
