  2. So I recently ran MalwareBytes and it came up with this PUP. Optional.ASK Users\Name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\USER DATA\Default\Web Data PUP.Optional.Spigot Users\Name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\USER DATA\Default\Web Data When I quarantine the files and run another scan it detects the same ones again (immediately after it just quarantined them)and will quarantine even more files. This just goes on and on, yet I have no toolbar installed in chrome and see nothing about Spigot or any unwanted ads? I haven't installed any new programs so I'm not sure what it
  3. Today, a strange icon has appeared on the toolbar at the bottom of my screen and I don't know what it is or how to get rid of it. I fear it may indicate some kind of infection, so I'm posting an image here to see if anyone recognizes it and can tell me what it augers! It's the little black and white icon between the Firefox and the McAfee icons bottom right. Although it has an X in the upper right corner, clicking it does nothing. I can close the browser and it will go away for a while, but soon returns. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  4. Hi There, Please help! I stupidly downloaded a program from a "trusted" source and it has installed malware on my computer. Specifically mysearchdial redirect toolbar that reinstalls despite the fact I have removed it from my computer. I think it must be hiding inside another program but I can't work out which one (although there is an icon called Online Games that I swear I've never seen before.) I have used kapersky tdsskiller but it didn't detect anything. Also please note that the redirect only happens on start-up and after that I can use the browser normally. I'm using chrome and iexplore
  5. Some how AVG installed a toolbar in my firefox brouser, (fat fingers or a family member no blame directed). Next thing I know my hard drive is full. Went online and found a fix, Delete the file (grown to greater than 4G!) then when it returns make it read only. Stopped using AVG and started using Trend Micro internet security with no further problems. My registration ran out when I tried to upgrade to TM Ti Maximum Security because the reg code was not compatible with internet security, worked with TM support and got no where. They said I had to remove AVG or their program would not install. I
  6. Hi folks, I downloaded the free version of EaseUS partition manager yesterday and shortly after running it following installation, further installation of unwanted programs took place. I cannot be 100% certain that the EaseUS partition manager contains these but it has to be more than coincidence as they installed a matter of seconds after I ran EaseUS for the first time. This is on a fresh install of Windows 7 64 bit with few other applications. Details of the unwanted software: - conduit toolbar / extension / addon / plugin - seen in Chrome and Firefox toolbars - trustworthy toolbar extensio
  7. My girlfriend decided to download the digital media program known as "SAI" but inadvertantly also installed the "SweetPacks" toolbar. After some fiddling, I decided to run Malwarebytes and Spybot Search & Destroy. Spybot found several pieces of addware, and apparently cleaned them up, including sweetpacks. Malwarebytes continually becomes non responsive several hours into the scan, but 100000 files in, and still no problem files found. This all sounded good, except her home page is still sweetpacks and she still has the tool bar. I have run dss, and have the two reports, as shown below. DD

Hello, I have been search through multiple forums for ways to get rid of the Whitesmoke Toolbar from my Mozilla Firefox. My nephew (who will never use my computer again) got it from a video conversation app. It has now created a toolbar on my firefox that will not go away.

  11. Hello. As a few other members here, I downloaded the video conversion software Super, and ended up with the Whitesmoke toolbar on Firefox, and looks like on Chrome too. I do not see it listed under add/remove programs in Windows, nor does Revo Uninstaller detects it. A Google search brought me to this forum, so I'm kindly asking for any help that would make me get rid of this thing. I'm creating this topic as suggested by the administrators.
