    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
