Magic Barrage deletion

All of a sudden I have magic barrage on my system. I did not intentionally download it and It has a window the appears on my desktop prompting me to play. How can I get rid of this program?

I registered purely because this just happened to me RIGHT NOW for the first time ever as well, I got a desktop popup that I was able to close in task manager by closing "Updatepack.exe" the file name has been to vague for me to comb results out of searches, I havent begun to dig too deep yet but as this got us both today it sounds like a payload from a dormant virus?

Ad popped up for me too. Source was Game Booster (C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit\Game Booster 3), so I uninstalled it.

It got me as well. I found the updatepackasc.exe location in C:\users\user\appdata\local\temp\updatepackasc.exe . Deleting that might cure the problem, but I highly doubt it. Here is a link to to a webpage that talks about that exe file. Malware scan of updatepackasc.exe 1ead56ae43328fbc032da2b6c2ba1f806361cbe0 - herdProtect If I find out anything else I will let you know. Also, maleware bytes will not detect it. They will need to update it.

I am editing this post because it said a mod had to allow my other post. Anyway, I think it comes from advanced system care from Iobit. Someone may of hijacked one of their exes. Here is a link to another website that talks about this.

Edit: Ironsword beat me to it. Yeah, it's any program from iobit. Be sure to uninstall AND delete the folder.
