  1. So it looks like I have accidentally visited a shady web page, that infected my computer. Now I have ads popping on my desktop every 30 minutes or so. I did however uninstall google chrome, but the ads kept popping anyway. I have so far tried these antivirus programs: - rogueKiller - adwcleaner - Malwarebytes - Junkware Removal Tool - TDSSKiller - RKill - SuperAntiSpyware But none of them worked. The ads still pop up. I have attached a screenshot of how the ads look. Does anyone have an idea, how to remove them? I don' t want to reinstall windows if I can. SCREENSHOT https://imagizer.imageshac

  5. So I have this nasty virus that started out as a bitcoin miner virus because every time I open taskmgr it goes up to 99% cpu and then goes back down. I though hmm maybe its a virus so i use Malwarebytes to see if I can delete it. Malwarebytes didn't detect anything so I thought it wasn't a virus i've tried everything nothing worked I reset my laptop to factory settings 3 times nothing worked. Also this may also be a rootkit because 1 time my whole laptop went unusable when I start up windows it says error program has not started and happened for all my programs on my computer I could not open
  6. Hello. There is a computer virus (worm.viking) going around the university where I work here in China, and I couldn't help but notice after MalwareBytes quarantines and deletes everything ... and after running the check again, everything is still there, although no longer accessible. Is there a way to get access to it again? (Some I can get to directly if I know the path, but not everything) I reported the problem to the school, and it seems to have been fixed. That is, the virus is no longer on the computers. Thank you.
  7. I feel like I've been living with either fileless malware or paralyzed AVs for a year now. Similar symptoms on another machine on the same network. Driving me so crazy that I feel like I'm seeing it on all devices, regardless of platform whenever I'm at my house. I hope someone here can put this to rest. A part of me doesn't even think I'm posting on a real network by posting on this forum. But we'll give it a whirl (again). FRST.txt Addition.txt well.txt DxDiag.txt
  8. Malwarebytes version 3.0.6 premium trial found 12 pup files and 2 adware files in the scan. Clicked quarantine and after several hours it was still on the spinning wheel with 0 threats added to quarantine. I scanned with FARBAR and attached those logs. There appeared to be hidden adware that has to be removed manually among other things. Please HELP FRST.txt Addition.txt
  9. JANUARY 2nd, 2017 Around 5am this morning my date changed and the system created a restore point with a future date of 1/3/2017, I tried to restore computer but "system restore" would not work so I had to result to an Acronis back-up from the 29th. I am thinking this bug is somehow hacking my router, because since I reinstalled I could never connect to the 5.5Mhz only the 2.4Mhz would connect, but now I can connect to both, wow. Anyway this date thing happened twice now since the reinstall so I seem to be carrying an inside bug OR malwarebytes is missing this hacker when he takes over
  10. OK, I've downloaded the FarBar software and it is on my desktop, but when I double click to Run I get the following message: Windows Smartscreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting ... Any suggestions? Regards, Rudy
  11. Recently I've found windows.exe in my laptops public documents folder and also in task manager have seen Pevz.exe running and then dissapearing then running again. I'm currently in safe mode.

  12. I got a worm in my system, I have no idea what it does but it tries to open up when I start my computer, I learned about it because after scanning and restarting, it would give a failed to start error message. I tried a full scan this time but it is still there as well as just deleting it manually to no avail. Opening it in notepad gives the header: followed by a lot of gibberish. I'm really worried to do any of my banking on my computer so I've been going to the bank personally which is very inefficient. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  13. Hey guys. So a few months ago I was downloading some game files and it also downloaded some PUP. One of these PUPs were Grillaprice. This was the worm that got me very interested in computers. So I tried to take care of it by running Malwarebytes and AVG. It looked all good once I cleaned it. But when I ran it again and again each time it would say it was there. When I tried uninstalling it from the computer it just pulled to the site and asked to DOWNLOAD the uninstaller (didn't trust it so I didn't) Later I resorted to completely resetting the computer. My question is: what is it that I di
  14. I recently used a usb and transferred over program from it. Now I believe I have been infected with a worm/virus. My computer has been acting very strange not connecting to the internet sometimes when its directly connected to strange ads? I was recently told malwarebytes forum and malwarebytes software are the best at these situations!
  15. Hello, I'm writing this post topic because I just read how one of the forum members helped Robin2020 remove a ywnmon32.exe malware he got on his computer the same way I got mine, and around the same date too (July 7, 2014). I also got a message stating that I needed to download Java in order to see a real estate website and when I did the virus was downloaded. The virus is not preventing me from using my laptop and the "browsing" effects of the worm have been "neutralized", I think. However, on startup, a pop-up window displaying "Invisible Browser" still shows up and then it disappears.

  17. Hello everybody, So, I was recently infected by this beast, Rotinom, not really that dangerous but persistent enough. (Note: I had no Antivirus in my laptop when this happened.) To be brief, I managed to, seemingly, get rid of it by the combined help of Malwarebytes, Kasperksy and some online instructions I followed manually (e.g. adjusting some registry values in order to show super hidden folders). However, the next time I switched my laptop on, I discovered in each one of the folders called "Recycler" -which exist in each one of the hard disks, built-in or external- a folder with the name
  18. Hello people! I've plugged my flashdrive in a public computer and that's the gift I get: a USB virus/worm called tmp5A5F.tmp.vbe. So all files/folders turn into shortcuts to hidden files, pointing to the vbe malicious file. The problem is not the files in the flashdrive per se, but the fact that neither Malwarebytes nor Avast detected any suspiciuos file. And it is always coming again, no matter what I do to clean it. I would appreciate any help in cleaning this up! Here are my Farbar logs: Scan result of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST.txt) (x64) Version: 13-03-2014 (ATTENTION: ====&
  19. My personal computer has been taken over by something called "BlowMeOFF". It's the only thing running on it. Using 100% capacity. 87-89% of memory. Can't remove or stop it running. I've had Malware installed for a while - maybe a year. Recently saw an uptick in blocked items. I can't do anything on that machine. I'm writing this from my work computer. Help! I entered this in the forum half an hour or do ago, but now I don't see it in the forum. Sorry if this ends up as a duplicate. Debbie
  20. A strange "new" antivirus software started running on my system today showing that the following worm was found: Email-Worm.Win32.Brontok.q I did not click on the fake antivirus software, but I did try to open Malwarebytes Pro and it will no longer open in regular mode. My system keeps rebooting and when I click on a website from my History, I'm taken to "strange" sites. Malwarebytes will run in SafeMode but does not find the worm. Chameleon did not help.

  21. Greetings, Malwarebytes forum. My name is Erik, and here is my problem: My computer was playing ads in the background, loads of them at once, whenever I started up my computer. This was a couple of days ago. I restarted in safe mode, ran Malwarebytes, ran Spybot, but still had problems. Some forums suggested some stuff that I ran, but realise was perhaps not the best choice, as this forum recommends not running any temporary file cleaners yet (which was then unknown to me). I ran TDSSKiller, which found a harbinger rootkit and removed it (it says). I ran SystemLook. I clicked a link from
  22. Hello, I am currently infected with the Win32/Conficker.B virus on my work machine. A little background on it, someone here at work downloaded the virus on one of our network drives which has spread to many machines I assume. Our MIS department has recently swapped servers so it won't spread anymore, but several machines are still infected by this virus. I have run several different scans in and out of safe mode only to have it return. As of today, Malwarebytes no longer recognizes the virus for some reason, but Microsoft Security Essentials is still finding instances of it. I've been dealing
  23. Ok, I Am To Understand That MBAM Will Not Be Able To Remove This Infection From My PC. That's Not Too Big Of A Deal, Most Of My Media Is Backed Up Onto An External HD Of One Kind Or Another. My Only Concern Is That Most Is Not All. I Shoot Video Of Local Bands And Artists Here In Seattle, Just For Fun, And Between My Last Backup Session And The Worm.Parite Infection I Have Some New Video Projects In The Works. I Have Updated MBAM Everyday, Rescan, And Worm.Parite Will Either Have 1 File Or A Bunch (297 One Time). If I Remove As Many As Possible Before It Replicates, What Are The Chances That P
