Windows 7: Security Essentials can't remove/quarantine "Adware:Win32/FastSaveApp"

Security Essentials can't remove/quarantine "Adware:Win32/FastSaveApp"

Hi there

Each time I switch on my PC Security Essentials flags up an medium alert (status active) concerning a detected item - "Adware:Win32/FastSaveApp".

I've applied the action "Quarantine" and "Remove", each time Security Essentials completes the operation and tells me to restart my PC.

Upon restart FastSaveApp is back again.

I have tried CCleaner and Malwarebytes but they don't pick it up. I've check to see if it has installed anything in Chrome and IE9, it hasn't as far as I can tell.

This is the first time that I've come across something that Security Essentials couldn't deal with. Any suggestions as to how I can remove this pest please?
