    Skype Helper


    Ever since I uninstalled skype, every now and again I get Avast popping up and saying:
    Avast has stopped a web page or malicious action from happening.

    URL: [REMOVED]
    Infection: Win32:Evo-gen [susp]
    Process: C:\Users\Dwarfer66\AppData\Local\Temp\is-IDDOQ.tmp\downloader.tmp

    I have Avast, Malwarebytes, and Hitman Pro installed and none can find it, so how do I go about stopping it.

    Hi dwarfer66,

    Try scanning your system with Adwcleaner and ESET Online Scanner

    I have used them but they did not find anything. It only happens every now and again, maybe twice a day.

    The removed URL you posted should be detected by ESET, so ESET should have detected something..

    Is the tem folder cleaned? (Empty)

    Yes it is empty. It was removed by Avast but comes back every now and again, has not appeared since last night, but usually when I reboot it does. It has only appeared since I removed Skype a few weeks ago.

    Have you tried Kaspersky TTDSKiller?

    I have tried RogueKiller, TDSSKiller, ADW, Avast, Malwarebyte, Hitman Pro. Not a big deal but just curious why it happens sometimes. Avast does stop it from working though.

    Try to quarantine it and see if the file(s) return.

    Found out what it was, stupid Skype (even though I had uninstalled it) had set Task Scheduler to AutoUpdate at Logon and 10.30am ever morning. Had a brainwave and had a look, found the 2 tasks and deleted them. Solved.
