Windows 7: I cannot get rid of: C:\ProgramData\boost_interprocess

19 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 Bit
I cannot get rid of: C:\ProgramData\boost_interprocess

Everytime I run adwcleaner it shows "C:\ProgramData\boost_interprocess" as something to be removed so I delete it but the next time I run adwcleaner it is back again.

How can I get rid of this pesky problem?

I ran DDS and got thid:

Hello and welcome Purrington mate try tone of these the Kaspersky would be my first choice

Because a general Google is saying it is viral and this will boot from the disk and start scanning right from go.
Don't be tempted though to download anything advertised.

Are you using any auto online backup service? Any service that is running during the scan will not be removed.
Did you allow AdwCleaner and JRT to remove anything they found?

Everytime I run ADWcleaner the results show the problem was removed but if I run ADWcleaner afterwards it is present yet again.

To my knowledge I am not using any online backup service.

I ran Kapersky but the issue remains.

Do you have a program called "Cloudfogger"? I see you've been advised to go to a Malware forum in MalwareBytes and ask for help. Please do so.
