    Please help me get rid Adware.Trace virus. It is all over my computer and seems my antivirus program cannot take care of it.

    This problem started about two days ago. I was using Google Chrome and browsing some download sites and noticed excessive pop-ups. After a few minutes, my computer started to slow down until it became extremely slow.

    By browsing some virus removal procedures, I was instructed to scan my computer with Malwarebytes, so I did. It found many instances of Adware.Trace. I was able to remove them but after restarting the PC and re-scanning, Adware.Trace is still present.

    Self Help Guide

    For easy and free removal of Adware.Trace, we suggest that you carry out the following instructions. We will use only free and effective malware removal tools on this procedure.

    1. Download the following Adware.Trace removal tools

    Click to download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware
    Click to download Adware Cleaner

    Once downloaded, install the programs using default configuration. No need to change on the current settings. Updating may be necessary after the installation.

    2. Reboot computer in safe mode

    Rebooting the computer in Windows Safe Mode reduces the effectiveness of Adware.Trace and other malware. Most malware and virus do not function fully while in Safe Mode. You may also scan the PC on normal boot-up; hence, we may not guarantee the efficiency of virus removal.

    3. Scan with Malwarebytes Anti-malware

    – Open Malwarebytes Anti-malware
    – On the main window, click on Scan tab
    – Make sure that Threat Scan (Recommended) is selected
    – Click on Start Scan button to start finding Adware.Trace and other malicious programs
    – After the scan, select all identified threats and click on Remove Selected button
    – If it prompts you that computer needs to be restarted, please select No
    – Close Malwarebytes Anti-malware program

    4. Run another scan using AdwCleaner

    – Open AdwCleaner.
    – Once opened, click on Scan button to search for malicious applications including Adware.Trace.
    – To remove Adware.Trace including all detected adware and malware, click on the Clean button.
    – AdwCleaner will prompt you to close any running application as it will need to restart the computer.
    – Click OK to restart the computer.

    After restarting the computer, you may run additional virus scanner if anti-virus is installed.
