The BackgroundContainer.dll program is malicious programs. This normally gets downloaded with Conduit toolbar which hijacks the browser activity and performs malicious action on your system.


You need to follow the steps below to get rid of this problem.

 Press the Windows key + R and type taskschd.msc and press enter. You can also directly type taskschd.msc from the search program and files section under the start menu. In the task Scheduler (screen shot given below) select the “Task Scheduler Library” folder. On the Right pane, select the “BackgroundContainer” task and click delete.

Ensure that you are using proper antivirus software. Post deletion run a thorough scan of your system and take necessary actions as suggested by the antivirus software (E.g. Kaspersky).

Start regedit.exe and search (F3 or CTRL+F) for BackgroundContainer.dll and delete all entries you find.

OR you can use Systinternals and search for backgroundcontainter.dll and delete it permanently.

make a full scan with an AntiVirus Scanner like Microsoft Security Essentials/ Defender and also scan your PC with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
