  1. I'm having an issue with my UMX android phone with some sort of adware virus I believe. I use Google Chrome as my main browser and for the last few months, when I click on Google Chrome and even when I'm not using Google Chrome it redirects me to weird websites like hastopic.com and weekhot.codeblogbt.com and random apps like ThemeLightBlue or YourTube that hijack my phone screen with some sort of Tarot game. This also makes my phone run really slow. I've cleared all chrome history and data and factory reset my phone 3 times. Each time I factory reset it, it starts doing the same thing ranging

    Am I FLoCed?

  3. I am sure I can't be the only person in the world that has Malware on an Android device running Chrome!!! Since the end of March, when I open Chrome I get redirected to:- hastopi.com/12199.htm (and other spurious sites). In addition, if I go intoChrome settings and turn on the Home page setting, it keeps getting overridden. As a separate issue, games like "Ducky" keep downloading themselves from the Google play store. I have Malwarebytes,AVg, Bitdefender and Kaspersky installed but none of these are picking up and removing the issue permanently. Can anyone offer any ki
  4. Hi, Chrome has stopped loading pages, and is causing my laptop's fans to get really loud, and is also causing my CPU usage to spike into the 80% - 90% range. All of this happened after I updated Malwarebytes and used the premium trial to run a full scan of my C: and D: drives. I'm not sure if the update or the scan or something else has caused this, but Malwarebytes has found no issues or threats on any scans, but I just can't think of what could be causing this. I've tried resetting Malwarebytes' settings, adding chrome to the exceptions, restarting my computer, doing a clean reinstall of bot
  5. I've been having a problem with a PUP related to Google Chrome that doesn't go away. Frequently I would run Malwarebytes and scan my computer, along with AdwCleaner, and the same PUP keeps showing up no matter how many times I deleted it. I've tried clearing sync data for chrome and uninstalling chrome, and the pup still shows up. I've tried formatting my computer but the PUP showed up again after I redownloaded chrome. I don't know if it showed up when I synced my data again, but regardless this is worrying. The PUP hasn't affected performance, and as far as I know, done anything, but I'm sti
  6. Hello, I have been trying to remove recurring PUPs from chrome, following the steps here: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/263016-chrome-pups-keep-coming-back/ I have made it to the point where the steps were specific to the hardware, and there are 2 PUPs that continue to reinstall themselves. Is this something that I should concern myself with, or just ignore? Thank you log.txt
  7. Hello, Yesterday I downloaded a program from the website "Keygen Ninja" while trying to get a keygen for a game I wanted. I ran the .exe file and ads were showing up on my google chrome and some shortcuts were getting deleted. A lot of requests for programs to run kept showing up and I pressed "no" on all of them. After that, I immediately downloaded MalwareBytes and ran a full scan, which took 6 hours, and something around 70 viruses were found. I quarantined all of them, and I ran other tools like Hitman Pro and adwcleaner to make sure everything was clean. I woke up this morning to a
  8. I have been having this issue for about 2 weeks now and i cannot seem to make it go away. I have attached the export file from after I quarantined the files in question. I am not concerned about the Marble Drop file as that is for me to run an old game I own and I trust the source of the file. thank you in advance for all of your help. MWB Export Log 20201111.txt
  9. So it seems I have some sort of malware on my Google Chrome on Mac. I'm pretty new to this so please bare with me. For example When I search a random search in Google Chrome this URL briefly shows: http://www.google.com/url?sa=D&q=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.operativeeng.com%2Fcps%3Fq%3Dwhere%2Bare%2Byou%26_pg%3DD5AF862B-7C24-5787-AF3D-AEAFF9F8B205 I am then redirected to Yahoo's search engine even though Chrome had always been my default. When I go to Chrome settings I see this search engine listed but there is no remove option. Chrome://management shows my computer is b
  10. Recently, Malwarebytes has kept coming back with each scan,11 PUPs related to chrome. If I do a scan, quarantine the files, and do another scan again, it's there. 11 PUP detections. Things I have tried so far: Disabling sync Resetting sync I can't wrap my head around it. I have a log file that I made this morning from MBAM Premium and I have since quarantined the threats. Here is the log file from this morning: log.txt
  11. I decided to download MALWAREBYTES and run it. It identifed lots of threats (all related to PUP.Optional.ASK PUP.Optional.Babylon and also PUP.Optional.Conduit) and quarantined them all. They were all located at the carpets \AppData\Local\Google\Chrome, etc... I ran another MALWAREBYTES scan but the malware keeps regenerating every time I open chrome! It keeps founding over and over again those 6 threats. After long time of using my pc if I run a scan it shall find around of 20 threats. I've deleted all my cookies and history and settings and extensions from chrome but nothing hel
  12. i know my computer is infected because each time I enter chrome it has two new extensions with strange names like "sleepy science", "wild medicine", "unusual community" and such. I scanned with malwarebytes and adwcleaner but both said that there are no detections. What can I do to stop getting this extensions?

  14. Around last week, for some unknown reason MB has started detecting my chrome user data files as PUP and quarantining them is only effective if I stop using Chrome.

  15. Hi, There is something in my Chrome profile that Malwarebytes is not liking. I am fairly certain that its in my profile since I am getting the same detections even after a fresh install of windows. I have read the Blog about PUP's (https://blog.malwarebytes.com/detections/pup-optional/) But i Can't find any info on this specific PUP.Optional.IbbCo.PN So I am looking for more info about PUP.Optional.IbbCo.PN specifically and what caused it. Thanks for taking the time to read this! PUP.Optional.IbbCo.PN C:\USERS\User\APPDATA\LOCAL\GOOGLE\CHROME\USER DATA\D
  16. A couple of week ago, I noticed that Chrome would randomly switch to using yahoo search when I typed a term in the omnibox. I scanned my computer with Hitman Pro, but didn't find anything other than tracking cookies. So, I scanned it with Malwarebytes, and it found several PUPs. I finished up the scan/quarantine, and when I reopened Chrome, none of the pages opened - they would load indefinitely with the occasional "Page Unresponsive" popup. Chrome only worked if I disabled sandbox, and each time I ran MB, it seemed to quarantine the same group of PUPs. I tried uninstalling and reinstalli
  17. Hello. {First of all, I must say I have already posted this on ToolLibs forum area. Forgive me for double posting} On a newly formatted Windows 10 I have copied the AppData\Local\Google folder to keep older Chrome's settings. After analysing it with AdwCleaner (8.0.5) it reports five unwanted Chrome extensions. I choose to clean them (quarantine) but after rebooting and rerunning AdwCleaner they are coming back. This is the clean logfile. It says FAILED. But why?. Chrome isn't even installed (I am going to use Firefox). # ------------------------------- # Malwar
  18. I think I clicked on something carelessly yesterday without fully reading the button. I thought I was denying website notifications. But I guess that's not what I did. Ever since then, I've getting the messages from Chrome asking if my Mac is infected. Yes, clearly it is. And there are other questions and suggests as well. Usually there's a reference to shorturl.at. A URL shortening site is where I got it I think. Anyway, I ran Malwarebytes and it tells me there is no virus, but you can see from this screen clip the notifications being pushed onto my my screen from Chrome. It doesn't
  19. FRST.txtAddition.txt Got a shady email, clicked link. (as seen in screenshot) I believe it messed with my chrome browser, since my account is linked to Google account on pc. Opened Chrome on pc, defender went off. Quarantined. Ran malwarebytes scan, found a few Hacktools. Quarantined and removed. However every time I open Chrome and navigate trojan, windows defender alerts me again. I'm scared to shut down pc, when I use Firefox, no trojan detected. What should I do? Malwarebytes scans + tdsskiller not detecting anything.
  20. currently, I have an adware that wont let me open chrome without reinstalling it that brings up a popup from command prompt that leads me to a website, when I tried to see what the website was, Malwarebytes detected and was able to scan multiple adware files, though this didn't fix the problem, any ideas on what it could be? the message I got from command prompt is shown below Microsoft (R) Visual C# Compiler version 4.8.3761.0 for C# 5 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.

  21. Hello, I recently upgraded to MWB premium and noticed with web protection enabled my preferred Chrome browser (on win 10/64) slows to being unusable. Microsoft Edge seems unaffected. Any ideas?
  22. I have brand new DELL computer. I've been using Google Chrome without a problem. Malwarebytes keeps popping up notification that free update should be installed. After I did it, Google Chrome is running very slow. And when I tried opening a PDF file, it would not open. And I keep getting this error message now (see attachment). I tried Microsoft Edge browser and that is working very quickly. I'm not a technical guy but can someone help me?
  23. Hello, first time posting so please excuse any formatting mistakes. So somehow I got segurazo today, managed to remove most of it thanks to jumping into paranoia mode as soon as i saw something. Managed to remove facemoods and conduit as well which had been bothering me for a long time. All these thanks to adwcleaner 8 and Malwarebytes. Now there is this persistent chrome extension showing up in adwcleaner classified as a PUP.Optional.Legacy but i can't find it anywhere and when i quarantine it, it shows up again every time i launch chrome. Attached is my latest AdwCleaner scan log. It seem

    Please view Support Ticket 2785602. It's been recommended by a Malwarebytes employee to post in this forum. Three weeks ago the last statement from Malwarebytes employee was " They do know where the problem lies, it's now a matter of finding a way to work with Chrome and how it loads Extensions". Running Chrome 80.0.3987.132 and AOL web on startup with Windows 10, for quite a while there is quite a delay with Chrome opening on restart or boot up using Browser Guard 2.1.9 compared to other ad blockers extensions. Any updates or information will be extremely appreciated! I must state the Suppor
