Nuisance Pop Up on Starting

  jonem81 25 Oct 13

I am using Win 7 64 bit, and I am, most of the time, aware of companies hoping that there applications can be installed without my knowledge. However, we do slip up sometimes, and an old, familiar nuisance has just reared its ugly head again! I expect that most Forum members know all about this, and hopefully members will know the solution! It's the Conduit pop-up nuisance " BackGroundContainer....dl,dll" that pops up now every time I Start. Yes, I have disabled it with "msconfig" and WinPatrol. I have run Malwarebytes and Ccleaner, but frustratingly, it persists. I am sure there is an answer to this, and hopefully a permanent solution to prevent this happening again. Look forward to your help,

Jock1e. I have had a quick look at the link you suggested, and found very sound advice with it. However, after closing down my PC, then re-starting, the problem (for the moment), seems to have gone! I do thank you so much for response, and if the problem crops up again, I shall promptly go back to this link!

Running WinPatrol and Malwarebytes and disabling conduit, with a reboot, removed it from the registry. Check your browser's add-ons and search engines.

Go to Run type MSCONFIG press enter go to Startup tab remove tick from box on startup item to stop it running at boot, after reboot put a tick in the pop-up box to stop it coming up every boot
