    What kind of Bug is This?

    The last couploe of times I have run Malwarebytes it has come up with the following threats.
    Each time I have selected and removed them, but it keeps coming back.
    When I go to the program data folder there is no folder visible called VisualBee
    When I go to the windows\system32\tasks folder, there is no file called VisualBeeRecovery, but there is a file called slimcleaner, which got in to my system in April.
    I subsequently removed it using Malkwarebytes after finding out it was malware. I have now deleted the slimcleaner file from the windows\system32\tasks folder.
    Can anyone give me any info about this, and how to permanently get rid of it?

    I've usually found that AdwCleaner is more adept at cleaning out PuPs permanently and as an added measure you can use Junkware Removal Tool which has a link further down the page - JRT takes longer to run than Adw but will produce its report upon completion http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

    You'll probably find VisualBee is a browser add-on.

    SlimCleaner is not generally malware: SlimWare Utilities SlimCleaner 4

    So visual bee seems to be gone.
    Just did another malware bytes scan and now there is something new called FLVMPlayer, or something like that.
    Google shows it to be some sort of adware thing that pops ads up all the time. I have been seeing this for sure.
    So I quarantined and removed it. Hope it's gone.
    Sure wish I knew where all this cr@p comes from!
