pop up virus

Hi,

I keep getting a popup to backup my computer (this is a virus).
I ran SPybot &s , malaware bytes, ccleaner and it is still there.

AV picks up nothing

What can I do?

Hmmm.... may not be a virus.  What os on the system and if windows can you give us the exact message or better yet a snip or screen shot?

Win7 and I will get a screen shot when it appears again.
Where is this message found as it is a generic message which is suspicious.

Remove all addons and extensions from the browser you use, and remove all toolbars.

Go to Control Panel --> Programs and Features. Examine all installed programs.  Do you see any that you didn't install or do not recognize.  Uninstall these.

Also download adwcleaner and run it:

Hello jagguy

>>> "mypc backup.exe and I cant delete it manually" <<<

Are you referring to "uninstalling" the program, as opposed to actually trying to delete it?

The first place to look when trying to get rid of unwanted programs, such as toolbars and utilities that are often installed with other programs, is as described here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows7/uninstall-or-change-a-program

I can't watch any of the videos on my work computer, but maybe you can see if your popup dialog looks like any shown in the videos on their site:

If so, the uninstallation instructions are no different to uninstalling any other program on Windows 7:

Is it possible that a "Lite" version of this program was already factory installed on your PC, as Dell, HP, etc, often do?
