I  have PC Performer stuck in one of my computers and I cant get it out. It boots up when I first start the computer. I went into my programs and features and it is not located in there. I have tried booting in safe mode and running combofix, maleware bytes, Super anti software. Not sure what else I can do to get this out besides reloading the OS. Thanks for the help

@jeffreychorba,

please follow the article below and let us know if you have any issues.

Broadly you would need to run, ADWCleaner, Junkware Removal Tool, MalwareBytes and optionally HitmaPro or Eset Online Scanner.

Get Process Explorer from Microsoft (free) and run it on the problem computer. See if there is a strange alpha-numeric label under the main Explorer line.

If so, kill the process, close out and run Malwarebytes again. That might work.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

Did you try using junkware removal tool and adware removal tool. You probably will have to turn your firewall off or allow these two programs through your firewall.

Then try Hitmanpro

Simplest way I know of is to do an offline scan using M$ Defender

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-is-windows-defender-offline

Boot  the offline disk and run the scan from there.

You'll never get a clean scan from trying to run it from it's own OS.
