  1. I have had the same problem. Mydialsearch extension is NOT in Chrome, but Malwarebytes keeps finding it. I delete Chrome from the computer, reinstall it, and same thing happens.
  2. Try opening Malwarebytes in Safe Mode and see if it will run. I had this happen a few weeks ago and it was indeed a malware of some type disabling Malwarebytes program. If Malwarebytes won't load in safe mode, I'd try doing a Windows restore to see if that works to restore your system to the last good operating point. These trojans and worms will often disable both Malwarebytes as well as your Windows system restore. The one I got disabled my system restore, Malwarebytes and also prevented Superantispyware from running in regular mode. I was able to run Superantispyware in safe mode an
  3. Yesterday I launched my computer and about a minute after it launched, I launced my IE browser and suddenly got a very strange pop up message I've never seen before. I wish I had copied it down exactly, but it was in plain text and said that Microsoft had found a software program which was not running properly (or words to that effect). It did not look anything like a Microsoft error message to me and my pop up blocker was on. I closed it immediately and made certain Malwarebytes was updated and ran a full system scan on my computer. Malwarebytes found a couple things in my restore direct
  4. My guess is that the main antivirus program installed on the system is blocking Malwarebytes from running. Mine doesn't do that, but it does block updates. I have to temp turn off the antivirus program in order to get Malwarebytes to update. Just a thought. If it ran before on the system and is not running now, then a trojan or malware might be shutting it down. That happened to me also.
  5. The wierd thing about the Usenet related malware attack is that it came simply by my downloading the message list from my Usenet server -- not by actually downloading a file. I have as of today updated the scan engine for my Trend Micro. The tech people over at Trend said that my scan engine was at the lowest end of the safety level and recommended I get their newest one. I guess when Trend updates, it only updates the virus/malware library. It must never actually update the actual program which is too bad. It is amazing how fast these trojans can grab hold. No sooner than I clicked on th
  6. I actually didn't mention it, but after the second attack, I did switch to Firefox. I honestly don't surf the dark side of the web. However I will admit the first attack probably came from my using the Usenet newgroups. The second one came as a result of a Google search and clicking on a found item in the search (at least I suspect.)
  7. In the last three weeks, my system has been attacked twice. The first one was minor. My main Internet Security program Trend Micro caught it and deleted it. But this last time, it took four different programs to rid myself of what appeared to be a Trojan. Trend Micro didn't catch it. Spyware Terminator did but couldn't get rid of it. The trojan disabled Malwarebytes completely as well as my Windows XP system restore making it impossible for me to do a system restore or to run Malwarebytes in order to clean the system. I was finally able to get a start on getting rid of it by running S
  8. Yesterday I somehow got a really nasty virus in my computer even though I'm running Trend Micro Internet Security as my main anti-virus program and Malwarebytes as my secondary protection. First my computer would only launch Windows XP in safe mode, I got a black screen when I tried to launch normally. However after repeated re-boots, I got the computer to launch Windows normally. I was able to run Trend Micro scan and it found nothing. I tried launching Malwarebytes and it refused to launch. I went to my Windows Restore to attempt a restore and when I got to the "next" button, I found it was

  10. I had the same thing happen. After Googling the virus name, I submitted it as a false positive to Trend Micro. Trend makes it nearly impossible to communicate with them. It's not a very customer service oriented company.
  11. My Trend Micro Internet Security just quarantined RTKT_FAKE.Y early this am also.
