Hello,

I'm not sure how this file made it into my computer or where it came from or what it is ? It shows up when I use Software Explorer but when I do a search for it through my computer a message pops up saying path does not exist. Software explorer shows it as

FileType:File
Startup Value: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Badoo\Badoo Desktop\1.6.58.1220\Badoo.Desktop.exe

Startup Type: Registry

If anyone can help me figure this out I would appreciate it very much as I am not very computer smart. Thank you in advance for taking time to read my message.

Hello

Yes! It is a virus!

Download, install and run these tools:

https://ccm.net/downloads/security-and-maintenance/6911-adwcleaner/

https://ccm.net/download/s/malwarebyte

That should do the trick

Good luck
