  1. It's almost 2020. Will Microsoft accept Malwarebytes for Edge? Must we return to Firefox or Chrome? It's almost 2020. Microsoft, may we please have Malarebytes' extension for Edge?
  2. Thank you for the explanation. I must have missed that notification in one of the updates.
  3. Haven't seen an option to run Chameleon on Malwarebytes since several updates ago. Does it still exist? A search through these forums indicate that folks are still using it.
  4. Argh! That PCWorld page auto-ran so many videos, that it kept locking up my computer. Finally printed the page to PDF, closed Chrome, and was able to read the instructions thataway. To no avail. I turned off, as instructed, the option to send parts of Windows updates to any other computer, whether on my network or not. And when I rebooted... Nothing. Until I opened Malwarebytes. At that point, I got two MORE alerts on Shieldapps.mL. The reports are attached. Again. As they occurred at 5:15 pm, I've named them MByteReport(today's date) 1715a and b, respectively. Whoever wrote this malware - and I'm beginning to truly believe Equifax is less innocent than they claim - is diabolical and clever. MBytReport10-16-17 1715b.txt MBytReport10-16-17 1715a.txt
  5. Turned off Sync Settings, rebooted, and -- got the same two blocks against shieldapps.mL. Double-checked the Sync Settings on Windows 10 -- and they are still off. Attached the two new reports. Each occurred at 1501 hours. MBytReport10-16-17 1501b.txt MBytReport10-16-17 1501a.txt
  6. Since so many of the reports were at the same time and date (I don't know why MBy generated two or more reports for every alert) I've attached the last TEN reports. They cover only 2.5 days. If you need reports that go back further than the 14th, let me know. I can send them right away. Don't want to overwhelm you with Too Much Information. MBytReport10-14-17b.txt MBytReport10-14-17a.txt MBytReport10-15-17b.txt MBytReport10-15-17a.txt MBytReport10-16-17ab.txt MBytReport10-16-17aa.txt MBytReport10-16-17d.txt MBytReport10-16-17a.txt MBytReport10-16-17b.txt MBytReport10-16-17c.txt
  7. And here they are! Addition.txt FRST.txt 2017.10.16-06.09.12-i0-t92-d1.txt
  8. Upon booting, Malwarebytes still alerts "Blocking shieldapps.ml" -- ip - Port 8 - If those are any help. I wonder what keeps trying to connect to Shieldapps.ML?
  9. Here you go! Thank you, so far. I'm not giving up this until you tell me all is clear. "Bulldog tenacity" a colonel once complemented me. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  10. Here you are. We ended up being "kidnapped" by our two youngest granddaughters and didn't get back from their home (our daughter and son-in-law live on the way from the grocery) until just an hour ago. Ran FRST, and looked for pevx.exe (Search03.txt) as well as pevz.exe (Searches 01 and 02.txt). They found nothing. Those logs (Searches 01, 02, and 03 in ASCII format) are attached. Where I found pevz.exe? -- That was in the Resource Monitor, where I saw pevz.exe taking up almost the entire CPU.. at least, I think it was the CPU that it hogged. When I googled the article aforementioned, http://greatis.com/blog/how-to-remove-malware/pevz-exe.htm , I quickly disabled pevz.exe. Almost immediately after I disabled it (That was the option I got when I right-clicked on it; to disable, not to terminate.) I forgot where in the Resource Monitor I'd seen it. But as soon as I disabled it, Zeok instantly came to life - and finished. There is still some minor, infrequent mouse pointer wandering (scrolling the screen completely down and to the right) but that's the only "badness" I've noticed. Shoul I run Zeok again, or the file you recommended 12+ hours ago? Search03.txt Search02.txt Search01.txt
  11. I'll try when I get home. Right now am sitting in car waiting for my wife to come out of Wal-Mart. Zzzzz
  12. Aha! Wait! Before we leave Zeok, I found something called PEVZ that looked and acted suspiciously. An article at http://greatis.com/blog/how-to-remove-malware/pevz-exe.htm indicated it is a trojan, and though I couldn't delete it manually, I did suspend it. At that point, Zeok began running again. It completed whatever was clogging it, demanded a reboot, then spit out its report. Here is that full Zeok report: Zoek.exe v5.0.0.1 Updated 27-09-2015 Tool run by Mormo_000 on Fri 10/13/2017 at 15:49:24.81.

  13. In a valiant yet futile attempt to unclog this drainpipe, I uninstalled all Firefox Mozilla everything. It's still stuck. May I please turn Malwarebytes and Defender back on? The mouse cursor is wandering all over the place and clicking randomly, even when my hands are far from the desk.
  14. It's been four hours since it stopped at Firefox extensions, and I have to use my laptop now. Last night/this morning, it got to the exact same spot: Firefox extensions - and that was after 13 hours. Zoek doesn't seem to work. Or it might be because the instructions to temporarily stop Windows Defender and Malwarebytes (from your links of "temporary disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware protection - instructions here or here ") -- the instructions at those links don't match up to the menus, commands, or directives within Defender or Malwarebytes. My wife is home now, and I sha'n't be able to do much more with the laptop tonight as she needs me to work. I shall try again Monday, to see if there is anything other than Zoek. And yep --- Malwarebytes still alerts (when booting) than shieldapps.ml is still around. Zoek.exe v5.0.0.1 Updated 27-09-2015 Tool run by Mormo_000 on Fri 10/13/2017 at 15:49:24.81.

  15. For some reason, Zoek stopped at 0829, which I didn't see until I came into the back room to check on it. I am going to run Zoek again in about an hour (about 1400 Central Time) to see if it does anything differently.
