  2. Download Source: http://www.sordum.org/7952/dns-jumper-v2-1/ Imgur Link: Software: Windows 10 AU Malwarebytes PRO Norton Internet Security May I check with other users as to whether this program is being falsely identified as a PUP? There's been no other reports of the issue. I've recently started using DNS Jumper again to rapidly switch between various DNS servers as opposed to command prompt / restarting. I don't recall trying any new software in the past 72 hours. However I've just gotten this message overnight that it's being viewed by Malwarebytes as a
  3. What is VidsquarE? The Malwarebytes research team has determined that VidsquarE is adware. These adware applications display advertisements not originating from the sites you are browsing. This one uses a DNS hijack to accomplish that and belongs to the DNS Unlocker family. How do I know if my computer is affected by VidsquarE? You may see these entries in your list of installed programs: and this type of scheduled tasks: and you may have seen this warning during install: How did VidsquarE get on my computer? Adware appli
  4. Okay so I have been trying to get rid of this NASTY guy with NO luck. This is crazy. I reinstalleed WINDOWS have downloaded several different checkers (AVast, Bitdefender, Malwarebytes). Once I install them they find it and delete them, but then find out later it renamed itself to an identical Windows file and camouflaged itself I guess. What the hell do I do? Now it looks like my other laptop could have something too....could this booger have 'jumped' to my other laptop? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! derek
  5. Hi everyone, I hope you had a good day. All of my devices recently had infected to a stubborn adware that labels its ads to "Ads by DNSUnlocker". I tried using lots and lots of malware detection softwares and sites, including MalwareBytes, with no success! I tried reinstalling my browser (Opera) plus deleting all the data from AppData and nothing solved. When I go to the extensions part, it says no extensions are installed on my browser. When I go to "Programs and Features" part in Control Panel, I see no suspicious, new program there. Also this adware had infected all the devices in m
  6. A few days ago i experienced some sort of adware whil browsing using chrom. I ran Malewarebytes Anti-Maleware and it found some files which i then removed. The problem seem to be solved. Today while using Steam, Malewarebytes started to block some sites, while some new Steam windows opend with ads (with the "powered by dnsunlocker" line) as well as some suspicious "JavaScript Confirm" window. The Task Manager revealed that three instances of "SteamWebHelper.exe" were running. As i tried to terminate those proccesses the "JavaScript Confirm" window dissapeared only to reappear along with the
  7. I recently found that DNSUnlocker was on my computer. I uninstalled it, and soon started having issues where I would be redirected to unwanted web pages from normal pages in Chrome. I installed the trial version of Malwarebytes and did a scan, and it found 2 malware files and a bunch of PUP files, which I then deleted using the tool. I also ran HitmanPro and Adware Cleaner, which also both found files that I deleted. Now Chrome appears to be working normally, but the instant I open up the "store" page from Steam, Malwarebytes informs me that it has blocked the domain "m77.dnsqa.me". Earlier, w
  8. Hi, A while back I was getting CloudScout pop-ups and ads in Chrome (no other browser). I did everything I could to remove them, even posting on BleepingComputer, but I just gave up in the end because they were intermittent and eventually disappeared entirely on their own. Now I have the same pop-ups and ads but this time they're marked "Ads by DNSUnlocker". My brother's computer gets the ads at exactly the same time as I do, every time. We're on the same network. Sometimes using Chrome's reset settings feature removes the ads for a few days, but sometimes it does nothing. I've run a fully
  9. I have been getting Cloudscout adverts, popups, and page redirects in Chrome for a long time. I would run Malwarebytes, and adwcleaner, the would find nothing, but adwcleaner would reboot my computer and the adverts would be gone for a while. Tried clearing my cache, resetting my browsers etc. but they still kept coming back. Then I started getting DNSUnlocker adverts, and decided to try and get help getting rid of these adverts altogether. (link to the attempt to fix here:http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/cloudscout-dnsunlocker.218944/) The guy who helped me couldn't find anything
  10. PC's at our office have been hit by DNS Unlocker. Its only Chrome (Edge, IE and Firefox are fine). We have downloaded the trail version as well as the paid version of Malwarebytes but the scans don't find anything. What do I need to do to resolve the issue?
  11. Have been plagued by multiple adware popups from DNSUnlocker and n1.smartyads. I continually get redirected to the point that I spend more time blocking the redirects than browsing. I'm not sure if the redirects are related to these adware items or not. Have used MBAM and other adware/malware programs to no avail. Standard removal guides for these malware items are not effective. Any help you could provide would be appreciated.
