  1. This morning my wife's Firefox for Mac 10.9 kept redirecting to hmapsanddirections.co instead of Google when she opened a new tab. She does not recall clicking on anything suspicious or opening a file. Both Intego Virus Barrier and Malwarebytes show nothing. Only thing we could do was to refresh Firefox. What concerns me is that no virus program spotted it in real time or afterward and doing a Google search just results in lots of no-name, possibly malicious, sites. None of the major virus / security companies have any entries on this. Can someone provide more informat
  2. Hello, I have issue with Initialpage 123 browser hijacker who has infected the chrome browser and I also use firefox which seems free from it now.

  9. Hey guys, Recently I've been writing an article on the causes of obesity and have been doing allot of searching as part of my literature review. I believe that during this exercise (and although I use WOT), unfortunately, my computer maybe have become infected with a virus. Yesterday I did a virus check with several different programs: malware bytes, AVG, SuperAntispyware, spybot search & destroy... All programs reported no infection. The symptoms are as follows: 1) for a while now, a time lag has occurred between typing and observing the text appear, an issue effecting both of my bro
  10. Hi, What would be the best way to remove the Trovi virus from my computer? I just got it a few days ago, and havenot yet taken any action to remove, for fear of not knowing what I'm really doing, and downloading unnecessary programs. So far, all I can see is that my internet browsers and search engines have been hijacked. Help would be appreciated!
  11. Hello, Ive been spending a few hours trying to remove www-search.net by Tuvaro, this pops up every time I open firefox as default search engine.

  12. Running XPsp3 system is obviously infected and we are having browser redirects that upload even more malware. Been fighting this off for over a week now. AVG, Spyhunter and Malwarebytes have been effective to an extent. But seem to be losing the battle. I've removed 11 virues and close to 80 suspicious malware related entries and programs, but they keep popping back up. AVG isn't functioning like it should anymore, and Spyhunter has officially been locked out via admin rights. Malwarebytes via Chameleon is the only thing detecting infections currently. Browser redirects and odd pop-ups continu
  13. This is my first time in the forum. This Morning MBAM detect a browser hijack after I did a quick scan, but I think it maybe a false positive. The file it mentions in the log belongs to Tune-up Utilities. TU stops processes running that belong to a particular program after that program is closed, this is to conserve system resources. In this case Tune-up asked me if I wanted to disable Firefox, I said yes, soon after I did a scan and a browser hijack was reported. Can you please confirm this is a false positive, and put my mind at rest. I have included the log which I ran using mbam.exe /
  14. I am trying to remove a single instance of PUP.Optional.BrowseFOX.A from a Windows 7 laptop. I got the PUP from Cnet in a download and after figuring out what to get rid of, I unstalled all programs I installed that day. I ran Malwarebytes and removed everything. Since then I run Malwarebytes over and over again and I find one instance that I remove. I rebotted and the thing showed up again. I can remove the Pup and it stays gone for a few minutes and then after 15 minutes or so I run Malwarebytes again and it is back. I have done this multiple time and Malwarebytes nor Norton can find i

Please advise on what to do. There is little online about this issue and most sites discussing it seem to be fraudulent. Ran dds but only one file created which I have attached. Please assist.

  17. Hi Forum, I hate to re-post but it looks like I might have fallen through the cracks. I am still dealing with the issues listed in my previous post from two weeks ago. http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=103716&hl=&fromsearch=1 In short, I have a browser hijack / google redirect malware issue, Malwarebytes is notifying me of blocking outgoing contact to malicious websites, and while this is occuring I have high memory usage and a very slow system.
