    Maybe you have a rootkit? Try Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit.

    Since malware removal is against the forum's TOS, I'd suggest you first contact your AV vendor (F-Secure in this case) so that they confirm that what is detected is not a false positive.

    Additionally, without any specific information you cannot get specific help, and accurate info is what is needed in this situation. Another option is to search for forums like BleepingComputer, Geeks To Go or Malwarebytes forum, register in one of them, and ask there for malware removal advise from experts.

    1. That is A vs. B question

    2. Prevx is no longer really developed, and won't remove threats for free

    Also, why is malware removal not allowed on this forum?
