/ "Filecoach" malware? How to remove

You could search the file system for anything that looks like filecoach or zoremov etc, and if you find something with a recent date, consider renaming it and rebooting. Google the file name in question first though!
using Clonezilla to make a system image is a useful technique for getting everything back. Takes a little time to master though.
Macrium Reflect is also good for system image backups. It's free.
Simple Google search finds this:
will have a look at that, thanks
