2. Locate any executable file with a random name, example adwpkq.exe (this file will be located directly in the Application Data folder). Right-click this file and choose 'delete'. Make sure that you do not open any sub folders of Application Data, stay in the main folder.
3. Bookmark this page, you may need to refer back to it after computer restart (see next step).
