Anyone had problems with SystHeal Optimiser?

This 'appeared' on a clients computer. It's the usual variety of ransomware, but I'm finding it very difficult to shift. System Restore fails (on three different restore points). It doesn't show in Programs and Features. MBAM and Hitman pro have found various bits of malware, but this thing still reappears on boot.

I've been able to stop it by removing it from the startup list in CCleaner, but would prefer a more permanent solution.

Any ideas, folks?

I guess that it has left residue in the registry. Would ccleaner help with that?

Also have you deleted any folders associated with the programme?

Yup, run CCleaner and looked for any likely folders without success
