Title: Can't remove Segorazo Anti Virus II and is there a way to block it?
Post by: ineuw01 on November 19, 2019, 10:38:44 PM
I was hit with this virus some weeks ago, (Windows 10) and tried to remove it with Revo Uninstaller but it didn't work. So, rebooted into Safe mode and deleted all files manually. To find all folders and files related to Segorazo, I used the free app "Everything".

What I don't understand is why did Avast not block this software?

Most anti-virus solutions consider SEGURAZO Anti Virus II as a so-called PUP, a potentially unwanted program,
also avast that then detects it when run into PUP-mode.

It is advised to get the last remnants of this unwanted half-baked av tool off, using MBAM,
after a run of Open Geek Uninstaller.

But I understood you already performed the uninstall procedure.

Sometimes Segurazo comes in piggibacking on malware so an additional malware scan could also be advisable.

Wait for a qualified malware remover here to come and assist you, whenever you need assistance.

@polonus, thanks for supplying additional software names. AdwareCleaner and MBAM found nothing after I removed Segurazo. Piggybacking is the reason why I asked if there is a way identify and block the app that carried Segurazo.

Can you post your MBAM/Adwcleaner logs here? Also, please run the FRST scan found here.

I'm not your expert (I'm not certified in Malware Removal).

Edit: Derp - is this a plain text CSV that you've chosen to import into Vivi? If so, remove the CSV file, no need to keep it around. If it's been generated by the application, it's encrypted, right? If not, get rid of it and drop the program.

I am sure that Windows and files are clean. I use Keepass.
