  1. First off, some background- I started this topic as i have been running into issues over the last few days. It started when a virus embedded in the most recent version of Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) was downloaded to my Computer (Windows 10 x64- running only Defender and free version of malwarebytes, at this point in time). I tried to move file to desktop- took a minute (hmm). Then decided to Place in my Extra Apps folder (w/ MWB, + couple others). Got locked on transfer screen (hmmmm), Tried to move to Recycle Bin, same thing. went to to file location, finally got it to move into recycle bin (i think that's how it went down?), ran CCleaner... A while later before bed, i opened windows security center, and noticed it said it had detected a threat. Ran scan.... Detected Win32/vigram.a (showing the transfer path i described above)... Removed... Ran multiple full, quick, offline scans immediately after. I then vigram.a i also scanned the desktop folder w/ MWB (no threats found), and then moved MWB out, MWB right then MWB displayed a message for new update available, which allowed me to start the 14 day trial over- which is great!! It's just weird that i never got the message before- honestly, might be nothing, given that i haven't used it in a while. Since then, I have noticed a couple of things (spurattically/randomly)-- Screen kinda will do a flicker/refresh thing when i open some applications (file viewer/MWB/Chrome/etc..) Not always though. It seems slightly slower?? more like random hiccups, and weird screen glitches with my background slides- randomly stuttering btw slides, and once, weird problems with icon images on taskbar glitching out when i hovered over them; etc... Just seems off. I have been hyper vigilant though- so that may be an attribute. ANYWAYS, I now have kaspersky w/ malwarebytes and uBlock origin, and nothing has been detected until today when i decided to try out AdwCleaner, and 17 things were detected... # ------------------------------- # Malwarebytes AdwCleaner 7.1.0.0 # ------------------------------- # Build: 04-12-2018 # Database: 2018-04-22.1 # Support: https://www.malwarebytes.com/support # # ------------------------------- # Mode: Clean # ------------------------------- # Start: 04-23-2018 # Duration: 00:00:03 # OS: Windows 10 Home # Cleaned: 17 # Failed: 0 ***** [ Services ] ***** No malicious services cleaned. ***** [ Folders ] ***** Deleted C:\Users\johnt\AppData\Local\Host App Service Deleted C:\Users\Public\Desktop\..\App Explorer ***** [ Files ] ***** Deleted C:\Windows\System32\Tasks_Migrated\App Explorer ***** [ DLL ] ***** No malicious DLLs cleaned. ***** [ WMI ] ***** No malicious WMI cleaned. ***** [ Shortcuts ] ***** No malicious shortcuts cleaned. ***** [ Tasks ] ***** Deleted C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\App Explorer ***** [ Registry ] ***** Deleted HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Host App Service Deleted HKCU\Software\Host App Service Deleted HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Classes\AppID\OverlayIcon.DLL Deleted HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AppID\OverlayIcon.DLL Deleted HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Classes\TypeLib\{ADF1FA2A-6EAA-4A97-A55F-3C8B92843EF5} Deleted HKLM\Software\Classes\TypeLib\{ADF1FA2A-6EAA-4A97-A55F-3C8B92843EF5} Deleted HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Classes\Interface\{7BCA6879-A9F8-47DE-AE05-F5CE7EA3A474} Deleted HKLM\Software\Classes\Interface\{7BCA6879-A9F8-47DE-AE05-F5CE7EA3A474} Deleted HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\App Explorer ***** [ Chromium (and derivatives) ] ***** Deleted Amazon Assistant for Chrome ***** [ Chromium URLs ] ***** Deleted Ask Deleted AOL ***** [ Firefox (and derivatives) ] ***** Deleted Amazon Assistant for Firefox ***** [ Firefox URLs ] ***** No malicious Firefox URLs cleaned. ************************* [+] Delete Tracing Keys [+] Reset Winsock ************************* ########## EOF - C:\AdwCleaner\Logs\AdwCleaner[C00].txt ########## Followed by... # ------------------------------- # Malwarebytes AdwCleaner 7.1.0.0 # ------------------------------- # Build: 04-12-2018 # Database: 2018-04-22.1 # Support: https://www.malwarebytes.com/support # # ------------------------------- # Mode: Clean # ------------------------------- # Start: 04-23-2018 # Duration: 00:00:00 # OS: Windows 10 Home # Cleaned: 0 # Failed: 0 ***** [ Services ] ***** No malicious services cleaned. ***** [ Folders ] ***** No malicious folders cleaned. ***** [ Files ] ***** No malicious files cleaned. ***** [ DLL ] ***** No malicious DLLs cleaned. ***** [ WMI ] ***** No malicious WMI cleaned. ***** [ Shortcuts ] ***** No malicious shortcuts cleaned. ***** [ Tasks ] ***** No malicious tasks cleaned. ***** [ Registry ] ***** No malicious registry entries cleaned. ***** [ Chromium (and derivatives) ] ***** No malicious Chromium entries cleaned. ***** [ Chromium URLs ] ***** No malicious Chromium URLs cleaned. ***** [ Firefox (and derivatives) ] ***** No malicious Firefox entries cleaned. ***** [ Firefox URLs ] ***** No malicious Firefox URLs cleaned. ************************* [+] Delete Tracing Keys [+] Reset Winsock ************************* ########## EOF - C:\AdwCleaner\Logs\AdwCleaner[C02].txt ########## Then after opening chrome, later, and came up with 3 more detections (have a feeling these are false positive??).... # ------------------------------- # Malwarebytes AdwCleaner 7.1.0.0 # ------------------------------- # Build: 04-12-2018 # Database: 2018-04-22.1 # Support: https://www.malwarebytes.com/support # # ------------------------------- # Mode: Scan # ------------------------------- # Start: 04-23-2018 # Duration: 00:00:13 # OS: Windows 10 Home # Scanned: 40705 # Detected: 3 ***** [ Services ] ***** No malicious services found. ***** [ Folders ] ***** No malicious folders found. ***** [ Files ] ***** No malicious files found. ***** [ DLL ] ***** No malicious DLLs found. ***** [ WMI ] ***** No malicious WMI found. ***** [ Shortcuts ] ***** No malicious shortcuts found. ***** [ Tasks ] ***** No malicious tasks found. ***** [ Registry ] ***** No malicious registry entries found. ***** [ Chromium (and derivatives) ] ***** PUP.Optional.AmazonBrowserBar Amazon Assistant for Chrome Idk, if my first problem, and this are related at all, but there it is...

  2. My computer has been infected with something and I've tried every possible solution but still couldn't remove it. After downloading something off kickasstorrent, I opened an .exe file which immediately lead to a bunch of programs installing themselves onto my computer, as well as a bunch of internet shortcuts/redirects appearing on my desktop. The first thing I did was delete the internet shortcut from my desktop. Next I ran a scan with malwarebytes, then hitmanpro, then adwcleaner(in safe mode). This remove most of the stuff but obviously not all of it. This is where the tricky part comes in. Whenever I tried so search up the words adware or adwcleaner using any browser(I've tried Chrome, IE and Firefox), my browser would automatically shut itself down. If I managed to make my way onto the adwcleaner website, my browser would again close itself. I had no problems going onto malwarebytes or other sort of anti-malware/virus websites. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-s... Furthermore, I've followed every steps given by this website. I've managed to "remove" the malware, trojan etc by using the software they recommended. However, I'm still facing the same issue of whenever I search something with the word “adware” or “adwcleaner” my browser closes itself. Adwcleaner wouldn't work unless it's in safe mode. I tried to launch adwcleaner in normal mode but it closed itself every time almost instantly after opening. I scanned my PC with malwarebytes and hitman pro at least 5 times already. It also wouldn't let me use system restore. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Over the last seven years, AdwCleaner has grown to become one of the de facto standards for adware and PUP remediation. Thank you for helping us making that happen! With adware and PUPs becoming increasingly annoying and aggressive, we wanted to make sure you had a version of AdwCleaner that keeps up. Over the last few months, we've been working side-by-side with many of our users and, with their input, reviewed every aspect. Since day one, the core of what makes up AdwCleaner is being fast, efficient and easy to use. With these as our guiding principles, we set out to modernize the codebase and deliver the next generation of AdwCleaner. Today, we're ready to share our hard work with you. With AdwCleaner 7.1, you'll enjoy these benefits: Speed and Detection: catches more and is 3.5 times faster New UI: easier, faster and more accessible Settings: fine-tune your experience Let's now take a closer look at AdwCleaner 7.1 and each of the enhancements!

We've strengthened our detection to better handle browser add-ons (even while synchronized) as well as settings (homepages, search engines, etc). You'll notice our generic detections have been enhanced as well as threats located on the filesystem and in the registry. New UI: easier, faster and more accessible Within our fresh and modern UI, you can still start scanning with just a single click!

  4. Hi, After installing uTorrent, I noticed a new Login Item alongside uTorrent itself called "runchmm" (which is in ~/Library/Application Support/runchmm). I have no idea what this actually does, but I have managed to narrow it down to a step in the Installer I missed that offers to install something called "Search Offer". I noticed that Chromium Browser has been installed and also when I start Google Chrome, it warns me that a new Search Engine has been installed. Safari seems unaffected. So, I have lots of questions: How worried should I be? Do I need to reformat my hard drive and reinstall MacOS? Malwarebytes doesn't flag this as AdWare... should it? Can I just remove runchmm from Login Items and from the filesystem (along with Chromium) and be ok? How can I find out whether or not the presence of this item is dangerous (rather than just suspicious)? Here's the installer screen that describes "Search Offer":
  5. I always see kuwodata please help to remove this from scanning, because i scanned 30 times and i always see kuwo data quarantined
  6. Hello, I am having an issue with my computer. Yontoo, identified as adware, continues to infect my pc. I use malwarebytes to scan and quarantine my pc multiple times a day to keep it running smoothly. I was wondering if there was a way to stop it from coming back. I have linked Farbar FRST and Addition in this message. Thank you for your time, FRST.txt Addition.txt
  7. Hello, Couple of days ago this particular PUP has been appearing on daily scans and I can't seem to get rid of it with Malwarebytes. There's not much else to say, it seems to be the only item that appears in the logs and doesn't seem to be doing any harm, nonetheless I'd like advice on how to remove it. I've attached the three recommended files. Thank's in advance! Threat Scan Results.txt FRST.txt Addition.txt
  8. Hi, I am having a bit of an issue removing that ware from Chrome. I've tried everything - reinstalling Chrome, clearing cache, clearing up my entire my profile, reseting synchronisation. AdwCleaner detects it as startup pages (report included) but I also deleted every possible startup pages as well. Thanks for help. Addition.txt AdwCleaner[S8].txt FRST.txt
  9. Hello there, After following a link on youtube I got a nice virus infestation on my PC. Malware Bytes allowed me to clean the majority of malware (PC cleanup utilities and such) but there is still a process that keeps on reinstalling itself that tries to open blocked websites even when the browser is closed. It's most definitely a virus (clostridium.exe) and I can't get rid of it. There also appear to be random redirections from google search to yahoo search. i uploaded all the txt logs requested. Please let me know if I am missing something. Thanks in advance MWB threat scan log.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt
  10. So I've been using my Dell Microsoft Windows 7 Professional for around 4 years, recently when I logged into my laptop, the screen froze after 2 minutes. I can still move the cursor but can not do anything else, after some research I found out I might've gotten a Adware. I also read that most Anti-Virus won't remove AdWare. I would just like to get some help in removing this Adware, currently running scan and have gotten 4 Adware threats. I also ran DDS, after seeing the result of "Installed Programs", I found out that some programs mentioned in the .txt file were not in the control panel for me to delete it, I would need more help, please reply to me ASAP.
  11. I had this issue 2 or 3 weeks ago. Malwarebytes constantly popups blocking a few different (what appears to be) adware issues, such as drivethelife and onclickads. There's a 3rd one that shows up sometimes but much more rarely. My Avast antivirus couldn't find any issues, and running a scan on my lifetime license MWB gives a message that there are no threats found. I have a temporary license on HitManPro and it seems to find tracking cookies but nothing to do with adware (from what I can tell). I uninstalled Malwarebytes and reinstalled it but lost my license key for about 10 days. During this time, I had no popups about these infections. I restored the key yesterday and started getting these constant annoying popups. I verified my installed programs and see nothing that seems related. All installed programs are normal Microsoft and other regular updates to my apps. I see nothing that seems related in my running processes, either. So how do I get rid of these popups? If there really is an infection (despite Malwarebytes telling me there isn't one), how do I get rid of it? Please help ASAP. I can't focus on my work with these popups annoying me constantly.
  12. Hello, I have a problem everytime i start my pc ad.fly popup shows on my default browser I've ran a full scan on malwerbytes,kaspersky,uninnstalled cracked games and utorrent,unninstalled suspicious programs,disabled suspicious startup programs,tried other browsers,set other default browser. I've tried almost everything. Could you help me somehow.
  13. So I was messing with my laptop about a week ago and found out that some extensions of Russian origin were installed to my chrome browser and some random websites were opening randomly. "Well, no big deal", thought I installing adw cleaner and deleting the extensions. When It seemed like everything was cleaned, I have continued using the laptop until the same websites have started to open and the same extensions appeared. This became worrisome. I installed malwarebytes, hitmanpro and ccleaned, deleted chrome and cleaned the cache files. Scanning, removing, rebooting... I have done everything that I could imagine to root out the source of the virus. The only result was that the virus didn't affect my computer, but this is only because Malwarebytes was putting it to the quarantine. For a week every day I was scanning and cleaning my system, but the virus still keeps coming back. And today I found something odd: this appeared for a couple of seconds but I managed to screenshot it. So now I wonder: is there any file in the system that makes this window appear and download the virus again and again? Can you guys help me with this? Is there any way to make the virus stop coming back? Thanks in advance!
  14. Hi, so fyi I have a YouTube channel and I started using a simple editor called Filmora Wondershare. I did not read the TOS through enough and the editor is connected to the Peoples Republic of China.. Which first, I do not feel safe with. 2nd, I have found out that it downloads Malware like Trojans, Adware, etc onto your computer. I have just done a system reset and I am still concerned some malware stuck around.Farbar Scans:pastebin.com/BMR5cvRFpastebin.com/7MK5ikB7
  15. Hi, Malwarebytes Premium frequently blocks malicious websites as shown below. I suspect adware infection. However, Premium and ADWCleaner logs are clean.

  16. Hi, When I open my Internet Browser, it opens numerous tabs. Currently I am using AdwareBlockPlus to block it. But I would definitely need a help on this, thanks.
  17. So the last known programs installed, were on the 18 of this month. Im running windows 10, and i made the mistake of thinking it could handle me torrenting. As I've done it countless times before, on win7 ult and didnt encounter a thing wrong. Anyways, long story short, im infected with something. I've ran countless programs to remedy it to no avail. unhackme, malwarebytes, adw cleaner, roguekiller, and hitmanpro, all based on this websites recommendation. im still infected. upon going through, nearly every folder in my drive (fresh install of win10 so i dont have much)i came across 3 folders that i had no control over, and couldnt delete. dtmhnlx, igfxmtc,wmhtcir. my guess is mining programs, but FRST revealed it to be a trojan. Although im still needing help on what to do to erase this. I want to play my games again without my cpu and gpu hitting max load, for games that arent even modern....also i should note, windows reset, and restore wont work at all. ive put win8 iso on dvd and tried to run on pc but wont read it at all, even disable secure boiot and rearranged the boot order. nothing works. if this doesnt work then i'll have to resort to taking out the hdd and doing a complete partition wipe of it, which i dont want to do because im just lazy. someone please help?
  18. Along with many others I had been bothered with the PUP that was related to the Chrome browser. With the help of MWB staff I managed to rid the PUP and had deleted Chrome. However I have been using AVAST Safe Zone but was not able to import my bookmarks so reinstalled Chrome and once I synced to recover my settings and bookmarks etc the PUP returned. However after the scan and deleting the PUP and repeating the scan to see if the PUP was gone MWB was locked by two pop up windows, one titled network settings the other network error, both erroneous, I believe these are the remnants that ensures reinfection if clicked. The only solution is the restart the computer, then a scan be carried out and mine came up clean, no reinfection was present. I saw mention of switching to Firefox, prior to this I had similar dramas but on a much more drastic scale over 4,000 items were being detected using this browser!!
  19. My computer is infected with Adware.Elex.ShrtCln. All the clean-up information is for infected Google Chrome and I do not have Google chrome. Is it possible for a novice to eradicate this virus or should I take my computer to a specialist? Malwarebytes picks up the virus but will not quarantine it.
  20. My computer came into contact with adware, specifically the one where it pops open 30tab.com whenever I open my browser. I've tried adwcleaner, malwarebytes, resetting the browser and resetting the sync, but yet this darn adware refuses to go away. It shows that it's a registry key, so I opened up regedit.exe but could not locate the adware. I'd love some assistance to help remove this adware!

  21. Hello. I've hit a roadblock trying to get rid of the adware mentioned in the topic title. Every time MBAM picks it up and tries to delete it, it always comes back. It shows up as a registry key, that key being the following: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\mrxsmb22 It seems nothing I do seems to get rid of it. I'm at a complete loss and I don't really want to have to format my PC just to get rid of it for good. I scanned my laptop with FRST. The logs are as follows. Please, any help will be greatly appreciated. I'm at my wits end. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  22. Hello everyone, I need your help. My laptop was infected by 30tab.com Safe Navigation virus. It hijacked my browser IE and Opera. I've already tried many antivirus and adware cleaner including Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner. I tried all of them, but no result at all. I also reset my browser to default setting or even uninstall the browser. But the virus come out again when I install it back. When I scanned with the antivirus, I found of the infected location in here : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\mrxsmb22 I already scanned my laptop with FRST.. But I don't know how to fix it. If anyone has another way to clean this virus, please let me know. Here the attachment below of FRST scan log. I hope you can help me. Thank you.. FRST.txt Addition.txt
  23. Hello again forum, Thank you again AdvancedSetup for helping me with my inclk problem. I logged into my other laptop to clean the same issue, and discovered some additional issues. Hoping to get some assistance please. I ran MalwareBytes and ADWCleaner a few times each. It looks like there are a couple of items that are persistent. 1. Myfree Codec, and 2. Freemake Video Converter. 3. Also, although not in the current set of logs, pup.optional.legacy was also persistent. I also have a number of other computers in my household. Should I post these in the same thread? Or create a different thread for each? Thank you again for your time. AdwCleaner[C2].txt FRST.txt MalwareBytes Report.txt Addition.txt
  24. i have this problem and can not find it with regedit but scan found it and blocked it what is it and do i need to do more than quarantine it? AdwCleaner[S0].txt
  25. Alright, i was doing the usual, gaming on my PC while malwarebytes was scanning in the background, when i get a popup that says it found one virus. I looked, it said it found a file called "PUP.Optional.binkiland". I immediately quarantine, delete, and do a bit of research. I found that it was adware.. which was surprising to me as i had not been getting any popups or changes in browser behavior. I followed some guides on removal, using adwcleaner, it found two more files, called "PUP.Optional.Legacy". I did some research on that, found only a guide to delete it. It told me to scan with adwcleaner, which i had already done, and scan with hitman pro, which returned no threats. So, my question is, what should i do in proceeding? Could it be a false positive? Remember, i had no signs of adware before this. Thank you for reading.
