exploit:swf/meadgive

jjstewart asked on

Windows Defender Antivirus reports exploit:swf/meadgive virus.  It reports Threats Found, but Windows Defender Security Center shows Threats Found 0, Files scanned 24411.  Only Quick Scan option shows, but when run it just repeats everything and more Threats are found.  Also did offline scan, came back up and Threats Found kept coming up and beeping. 

I saw other similar posts and want to join the solution, if one can be found.

Malwarebytes worked for me.  Download and use the trial version, once the scan is complete go to the quaranteed folder and delete all files there.  Then reboot.  Worked for me after trying every other solution that has been posted. 

Good luck...hope it works for you.
