So I keep getting this program called "myo.exe" It's located in my AppData/Local folder in the C: drive. I keep deleting it but it keeps popping up after I have shut off and turned on my PC. I scanned it with both Malwarebytes and Norton Antivirus But it doesn't see it as harmful or a virus or anything.

I want to get rid of it mainly because once it pops up on my Task Manager it plays audio that sounds like an Ad. Except I cant see it and plays on the background but I can hear the audio or video through my speakers and headphones.

Its annoying as it can happen when I play games or watch movies.
I have this program for about 6 hours now and dont know what to do except to do a fresh install of Windows 10 64bit

Myo.exe or mio.exe? I can't find an myo.exe online. I do see mio.exe, but they talk about pop ups covering your screen, not audio only ads.

Sometimes when things install themselves they are able to somehow get around any AV you have on your system already. I see you are running Norton, try installing AVG or Avast. You don't need to leave it installed, but one of them should pick up anything bad on your system and remove it. I'd try AVG first.

Thanks, yeah I looked online and cant find anything about myo.exe but thats what i have. I did find a workaround though, so I deleted it as soon as I started my computer and it never popped up again. But when i turn it of and turn it on again it would pop up. So ill be stuck deleting it as soon as my PC boots up. But its no big deal.
