    Microsoft Security Essentials unable to remove Conduit Malware, help

    After updating adobe I got Conduit installed in my system. I am not able to figure why Microsoft Security Essentials is not identifying it as a malware. I checked on the web and many says that this is a virus infection and one must remove it.

    I am having Microsoft Security Essentials as the only antivirus in my pc. I want a bit help here to remove it. What should I do. I am facing redirection problem on my system. Somebody please help me out with this.

    Conduit is a very annoying malware. It is not easy to get rid of the same. First go in Start Menu > Control Panel.

    There go in Uninstall a program and look for Conduit. If you have any toolbar or any free stuff installed in your pc then just remove it. Then use a good system cleaner to fix registry errors.

    You can also check your browser add-ons if they are having any kind of thing installed. Just remove the same.

    It is weird that MSE is not able to locate conduit as a malware. I think you had not updated your system. The first thing you must do is install all the latest require updates in your system. Removing it manually is simply not so easy. So you can try using malwarebytes. You can download the trial edition and install the same in your pc. Then boot your system in safe mode and then scan your pc. This will be enough to resolve the issue.
