    Am fixing a friends system for which she had a dead hd. got it up and running and am now cleaning her system.she had that malware pop candy something which malware bytes had removed. only problem is it left a remnant behind that I don't know how to clean up.

    on startup she gets a message stating:

    Run dll

    there was a problem starting C:\user\linda\appdata\local\conduit\backgroundcontainer\backgroundcontainer.dll

    we can close it but I can't find what's starting it to begin with. any suggestions appreciated. TIA
