Hello, I use AVG Internet Security and I have problem in deleting a virus called JS/Adinject which pops up every 5 minutes. I tried to remove it but the virus reappeared every time I restarted the computer. I also ran Malwarebytes multiple times and other cleaners, but they didn’t detect any malicious files. I am not good at computers and don’t know what to do now. Any assistance would be appreciated! Thank you.
