Is PEV.EXE a Combofix File
  

I have a very weird problem, I first had a virus which does not affected much After playing a game online my desktop computer crashed ( 3 times in the same game), we think it's the graphics card in both cases for the card I am monitoring my pc As concerns the crash of the pc with inability to reboot the computer in normal mode seemed to come from the card instead of a file. But my antivirus detects the PEV. exe file can anyone tell me how can i get rid of this file is the PEV.EXE file associated to combofix please elaborate.

We will begin with a general scan, then should see if we manually can delete files like the one you have just analyzed

Download and install Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
At the end of the installation, ensure that the option "update Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware" is checked
Lance MBAM and let Updates to download (if not doing them manually launch the program)
Then go into the "Search" tab, check "Run a quick scan" then "Search"
Select your hard disk "then click" Start Review "
At the end of the scan, click View Results
Mark all the items detected and then click Delete Selected
Save the report
If asked thee to restart, click Yes
Mail in your next reply with a report appearing after the removal.

Yeah the pev.exe is associated to the comnbofix only and hence i would suggest you to get the files removed using a powerful application since this will harm your system files in future anxd it will also not allow you to install the Combofix application in future. You can try to use Microsoft security essential
