Conduit Virus Removal March 14, 2014

Folks,

I have seen a rash of “Conduit” infections lately.  Conduit is usually installed with desired free software.  You should never install software from the internet using the “recommended” installation.  To prevent some malware, always use the “custom” installation and decline (uncheck)  any additional software and tool bars.

You can identify this infection by observing “conduit” as part of any search or search result.  And, in my experience, if you find the programs

  • myPC backup
  • Driver Update
  • Optimizer Pro
  • Norton Security Scan
  • and find a Sync Folder shortcut on the desktop

On your computer.

Below are links to guides for removing Conduit and its traces.  Before starting removal, you should turn off System Restore because these files can reinfect the computer on re-boot.  Be sure to remember to turn it on again and make a restore point of the cleaned computer.
