Hi there. I have a Dell laptop, running with Windows 8.1. The laptop has been working good until yesterday I ran a scan with AVG which found Adware Generic6.BZPN on my computer. The virus keeps on coming back all over again. AVG removed it a hundred times now, but it keeps on coming. How do I get rid of this Trojan for good?
Adware Generic6.BZPN is classified as adware that mainly promoted via spam e-mails, malicious or hacked Web pages, peer-to-peer networks. If your antivirus program keeps reporting this virus and won’t allow you to delete it, then it proves some potentially unwanted programs must have been installed on your computer without your knowledge too. Usually this virus won’t come alone, it can come along with other threats like Adware Generic6.QJC virus or other similar malware to mess up the target machine. Once downloaded, it may display you a lot of useless and interrupting ads on your web browser and even hijack your homepage and default search engine on all your web browsers including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox as well as Google Chrome. Thus, while you are browsing the Internet, you will have a trouble loading up your homepage or going to your favorite website.

If you open task manager, you will find that CPU usage can reach to 99% even with few programs running backstage, so your computer is hardly to be used anymore. Even worse, Adware Generic6.BZPN can be used to install spyware rogue security programs, browser hijackers or Trojans without your knowledge, increasing the risk of security. It roots deep in the system and mutates fast and in order to protect itself and further attack PC users, it generates malicious items to system folders which can add the difficulties for antivirus software to completely remove all its harmful files. Anti-virus program like AVG may keep reporting the virus but it won’t help remove it completely. Therefore, we strongly recommend you to get rid of Adware Generic6.BZPN virus manually.
