  1. Hi, Malwarebytes Premium frequently blocks malicious websites as shown below. I suspect adware infection. However, Premium and ADWCleaner logs are clean. Please advise. -Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 , , Blocked, [-1], [-1],0.0.0 -Website Data- Category: Unspecified Domain: hilltopads.net IP Address: Port: [57157] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -Website Data- Category: Unspecified Domain: adexc.net IP Address: Port: [53330] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -Website Data- Category: Unspecified Domain: fwbntw.com IP Address: Port: [54561] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files\Opera\49.0.2725.43\opera.exe -Website Data- Category: Unspecified Domain: deloton.com IP Address: Port: [50372] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files\Opera\49.0.2725.43\opera.exe mwbreport.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt AdwCleaner[S1].txt
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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!!
  5. 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.
  6. 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! Here's the Report Scan from Malwarebytes: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Scan Date: 12/21/17 Scan Time: 12:22 PM Log File: a6872622-e68c-11e7-ada9-00ffa16c399e.json Administrator: Yes -Software Information- Version: Components Version: 1.0.262 Update Package Version: 1.0.3538 License: Free -System Information- OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: Cassia-PC\Cassia -Scan Summary- Scan Type: Threat Scan Result: Completed Objects Scanned: 313906 Threats Detected: 1 Threats Quarantined: 0 (No malicious items detected) Time Elapsed: 22 min, 7 sec -Scan Options- Memory: Enabled Startup: Enabled Filesystem: Enabled Archives: Enabled Rootkits: Disabled Heuristics: Enabled PUP: Detect PUM: Detect -Scan Details- Process: 0 (No malicious items detected) Module: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Key: 1 Adware.NetFilter, HKLM\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\SERVICES\mrxsmb22, Removal Failed, [1429], [468093],1.0.3538 Registry Value: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Data: 0 (No malicious items detected) Data Stream: 0 (No malicious items detected) Folder: 0 (No malicious items detected) File: 0 (No malicious items detected) Physical Sector: 0 (No malicious items detected) (end)
  7. 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
  8. 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..

  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. Hello, I have looked at various post on how to remove yontoo with Malwarebytes and it has come to this. I have followed the steps posted here: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/214325-chrome-secure-preferences-detection-always-comes-back/ I went ahead and turned off sync for all 3 accounts tied to my Chrome, removed all search engines except Google, and RESET Chrome. I was able to remove 3 of the 4 infections tied to it but the one infection cannot be quarantined at all...... Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I have also tried HitmanPro as I saw in older post as well. Thanks!
  13. So ever since this afternoon I went onto one of my usual wikias for a game, when out of nowhere it started acting strange. It hasn't done this until today, and that's including yesterday when I last used it. It's using an excessive amount of cookies, and the domains in my Ublock aren't looking like they normally are. It even redirected from the original wikia, to a strange URL, back to the wiki. I have no idea what happened, and I don't know if it's because of the site or suspected adware. What makes this even more confusing is that it doesn't seem to be happening to everyone. Neither Malwarebytes not ADWcleaner is picking it up, so I think it's a site issue. I honestly don't know what to do in a situation like this, because it's only the sites that are "Powered by Wikia." Do I have Adware, or is this something happening to the sites themselves?
  14. im seriously getting annoyed by this ad always opening internet explorer. does anyone know a way to manually delete malware/adware? if so please come to my aid lol but seriously i wanna get this removed from my pc. i've read some forums about deleting system 32 and i also read that if i do that it will be the same as deleting my entire pc lol so im here for professional help that know exactly what i need to delete and i have hopes that you dont troll me into deleting my pc LOL and i had used malwarebytes but it lies to me that im good to go *cries* so please someone guide me manually to delete this bs
  15. Hi, After opening a QR code link for Whatsapp Web an extra tab opened with myhelpfuldownloads.com URL and an add for Scanguard. This is quite a new laptop I am setting up after having it repaired and wiped by Lenovo customer support, so I am quite surprised there is already adware on it. I can't figure out where it came from. Perhaps syncing my Google Chrome after logging in brought along something, but I can't discover what it is or how to disable it. Attached all the logs as per instructions. I hope someone can help me figure this one out. Many thanks in advance Addition.txt FRST.txt MalwareBytes_Threat_scan_log.txt
  16. Hi I have a problem, I was looking through my email on Yahoo and by mistake I clicked on a AD link and it directed me to some survey website that was sketchy but i closed it imitatively and checked the Chrome History and found out i was directed to like 4 different websites at the same time and searched to see if they where safe but all where safe expect 1 and I ran Malwarebytes to see if i have any viruses and it found the PUP.Optional Conduit 2 times every time it scanned. I quarantine them and deleted them and scanned again but they keep showing up. I used Adware Removal from Malwarebytes and Bitdefender and the Malwarebytes deleted something but scanned after and it was still there and the Bitdefender one didn't find anything. Ill leave a photo to see what I mean. Hopefully somebody helps me. And one more thing, I noticed the Chrome browser closes by itself randomly after I'm not using it.
  17. Hi, 2 days ago this nightmare started. As always I was doing a scan with Malwarebytes and 4 problems came out: 2 of them have been solved, the others no. Their name is Adware.Elex.ShrtCln and they're located in C:\Users\bruno\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\USER DATA\Default\Web Data. Useless to say that when Malwarebytes delete them, when i restart my pc they return. I've installed a new copy of windows, a clean installation obiviously, and until I haven't reinstalled Chrome, the problem did not show up. Now, what I have to do? Thanks if you will answer, i hope fast because i'm a little bit scared from this, also because google detected some suspicious attempts to acces my account from Russia.. I'm italian so there's a problem I also post a picture of them.
  18. So the adware gets removed but keeps reappearing after reboot.... all it does is force me to use yahoo, also some sites and web functions do not work... 1.txt
  19. So I have recently done many scans with the Malwarebytes antivirus running the latest update and each time it has detected one PUP (Optional.Ask) and three of the following: PUP.Optional.SweetPacks No matter how many times I quarantine and delete these PUPs they always reappear when I scan again. They seem to be in the Chrome files but they always seem to replace themselves. I have also noticed that the Ad Blocker extension I have has blocked a larger amount of 'ads' recently. Not sure if that has to do with anything... Screenshots will be below.
  20. Hey, Malwarebytes cannot delete the adware seen in the attachment. As you can see it just keeps coming back even though malwarebytes keeps replacing the files.. From logs you can see that I've been always using the latest version. I also tried the AdwCleaner but that does not even find it. Please and help me remove it permanently scanlog.txt scanlog2.txt scanlog3.txt
  21. Hello, Sadly I got a weird returning adware on my PC called Adware.Elex.ShrtCln, that is somehow linked to my Google Chrome account. When I run a Threat Scan, malwarebytes detects the adware and succesfully removes it to the quarantine. After that the program prompted me to restart the PC. So after I restarted the PC, I ran the Threat Scan again. But unfortunately the adware was again detected. I have already tried to remove all the browsing data from chrome and to use the Chrome Cleanup Tool but no succes at all. Can someone help me please? Thank you in advance for every assistance Malwarebytes Threat Scan log.txt Addition.txt FRST.txt
  22. It is in the office PC, now here it is quite midnight, sure tomorow I will post. Hi
  23. Hello. I've tried uninstalling Chrome, resetting the data and running the malwarebytes free version scan - then i delete the quarantined results and restart the PC. After rescanning it once the computer has signed in i keep getting the same adware.yontoo appearing in the scanned results. See below; How can i make sure i remove this once and for all so it doesnt appear again? I've tried the MalwareBytes Adware cleaner - that has removed other stuff but this Adware.Yontoo is driving me insane. Please can anyone recommend what i should do? Thank you. j4v3d
  24. So i'm sure i'm in the same boat as a lot of other people, after seeing high activity on the forums about this, but i've followed some 'solutions' and yet i'm still getting the same the same 4 files appear on the scans i'm running, i don't know whether i should be worried about this as so many other people are having the same issue i just wanted to post here so someone could help me once a solution has been found as multiple attempts of deleting these web data files just isn't working nor is resetting my sync could someone explain to me what is going on and a way to solve this so it stops happening, it'll be highly appreciated thanks in advance PUP.txt
  25. Hello. I accidentally downloaded and ran a couple shady things lately, did a full sweep and regular - just in case scans on daily basis for a couple of days. Everything is fine except these two PUPs that I can't seem to get rid of. It is called "PUP.Optional.Linkury.Generic" and it seems that it has infected google chrome. Something tells me another hidden file is generating them, because whenever I put them in quarantine and delete them, they re-apper in the next scan. Uninstalling chrome did seem to solve the issue (the indefinite generating) because I assume the source didn't have anywhere to put them and run them, so as soon as I installed chrome again, it continued happening. The following screenshot I left the scans quarantined just so you can see what I'm talking about. They always appear in pair, and they don't stop after getting quarantined. What do I do?
