    Hello, I'm pretty new to this stuff--old guy trying to learn--and I've just done a reinstall/rebuild including a DOD version of Symantec Anti-virus that updates daily. I keep getting warnings that this Pulos397.exe is infecting my C drive. I've searched for any references to this and this is the only place that gets a hit.
    I can't even find this file to manually delete it (C:\Program Files\Common Files\mfteghfd\pulos397.exe).

    Has anybody else encountered this? If so, could you tell me how to delete it? So far no adware/malware/anti-virus program has been able to scour it out.
    I've tried AVG, Bit Defender, Windows Defender, My Symantec Suite, Malwarebytes,Glary Utilites.

    I'd really like to avoid having to reinstall windows again as I did it a week ago.

    I've included a system summary from Lavalys--hope this is what you need as far a specs go.

    If anybody could help me I'd be eternally grateful.
