He used my laptop without my commission to download something which made my computer completely out of control, he said it was suppose to be a funny video, but it turned out to be a virus, the name is PUP-FPS PUP-FNK. Right now, husband is at work, son is in school, and I can’t figure out how to get rid of this stuff. Can anybody help me out of this trouble?

These are common symptoms of a very serious PUP-FPS PUP-FNK infection!
PUP-FPS PUP-FNK can screw up your computer system as we know, but how does a computer get infected by this one in the first place? Normally, this virus will be bundled with popular applications like free music players, video players, PDF creators, download managers and so on from third party resource. Or you may also get this virus from clicking some links and attachment from your email spam. After you download some of these programs, the virus can be installed on the sneak without letting you know. After installation, it will enter your computer by utilizing flaws in your firewall and other vulnerabilities in your security system, and then it can start further harm actions to your system. The most annoying downside is that, you will see endless popup ads, coupons, videos and sponsored links when you open your browsers, but what you don’t know is that these annoying things may aim to collect search terms from your search queries, which already infringe your private, it could make use of your record for bad means!

They will be activated each time you start your computer and run themselves on the backgrounder.
