    My daughter's laptop has been infected with this virus. I logged on in safe mode with networking and downloaded malwarebytes. Ran it and it found 14 incidents, upon restart the virus is still there. I'm now trying norton which was already on the computer. It currently shows 9 infections. If this fails any suggestions?
    Thanks

    See if there are any restore points to a time before the infection. Restore Points have worked for me and way easier to deal with than a full System Recovery.
