pushsroutg malware


a few weeks ago I unintentionally installed some malware which shows unwanting ads and messages.  I tought that it could never happen to me because I'm always very carefull on what and how to install programs.  Unfortuanally I installed this pushsroutg malware virus and I can't find a way to get rid off it.  Is my McAfee able to do this for me?

Kind regards,


Geuns Bart.

Hi @geunsb 

Please uninstall any third party application installed recently on your computer from control panel. Please initiate a quick clean (How to use Quick clean option) for clearing temporary files, and unwanted information such as tracking cookies from your computer. Additionally perform Virus Scan to scan your computer for viruses following article How to scan your computer for viruses using McAfee VirusScan

Hi Peacekeeper,

thanks for the info.  I already came across this site but I didn't read it untill the end because he proposed to buy and install 3 different programs.  I first wanted to know if there wasn't any other sollution for my problem.

I'll keep you informed.
