Poweliks Gen 4 Virus
Detected by F-Secure and said removed but this Virus is in the start up and is a loop. 3,000 messages so far about F-Secure removing this virus but it keeps reappearing over and over again. I have to minimize the f-secure message because its constant. How do I get rid of this Virus and message permanently?
In this case i would recommend building yourself a rescue-stick (https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/labs_global/rescue-cd), boot from this and remove the infection.
You could also try (depending on your OS version) booting to safe-mode with networking and see if you can launch f-secure or at least the web-based online scanner from there. If this fails > go for the F-Secure rescue-stick.0 Like

Did trying @moe120 suggestion help?
Otherwise it sounds like some unwanted program isn't removed. Have you had a look in your controlpanel, and checked if there is any programs that could be removed?
If this still doesn't work, I would recommend contacting our anti virus department via submit-a-sample where you can select that they can contact you. For them to be able to help, please provide a sample of the file that keeps getting removed, so they can instruct you how to remove it.7 2Like
