  1. I am having the same problem with my computer. It seems like if it sits idol for a while the Edge browser gets redirected to the "Microsoft Critical Alert" website which is a randsomware website. I just installed MBs a week or so ago and it blocks the redirection of my webpage but prior to this my computer was being redirected nearly everyday to this "Critical Alert from Microsoft" scam website. There is something on my computer that NONE of the virus removal programs are catching. I am not great when it comes to computers but somethings on it and I would be very surprised if it only has to do with ads on the yahoo page. My wife's computer doesn't redirect at all and she's on yahoo all the time. This is the report I get back from MB: Category: Unspecified Type: Outbound connection Domain: Verification.mytbar.com File: C:\\Windows\SystemApps\MicrosoftEdge_8wekybed8bbwe\MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe I get a block nearly every day. The outbound connection domain changes each day but the File does not. A couple recent days attacks: Domain: gp.symcd.com Domain: Kcworld2008.dothome.co.kr File always the same: C:\\Windows\SystemApps\MicrosoftEdge_8wekybed8bbwe\MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe Can someone tell me what I have to do to stop this? It's been going on for a couple months. Why are none of the virus removal programs catching this thing? Thanks for the help.

  4. Dear Sirs, I'm struggling with a very weird form of redirect virus (page name appears to be GOAC before the redirect happens) which is taking place on all of my installed browsers. Reinstalling chrome and firefox didn't help. Happens on Microsoft Edge as well. I tried full scanning using Malwarebytes, Windows Defender, Kaspersky's Toolkit scanner tool, and no threats were found. The redirects are frequent and happening across all my browsers, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced, PS: Using windows 10 home edition.
  5. have this strange problem going on with my computer: once a week my browser, google chrome, redirects to a random page. Sometimes it's a "your computer has a virus on it" page, and sometimes it's a "install the latest updates to flash that we are downloading for you right now without your permission" page. It only seems to happen on certain pages (deviantart, tumblr, etc.) and only if I leave that page up on my tab and leave it idle for an amount of time. I keep using various scans and they all come up empty (except for RogueKiller, but that's apparently a false positive) and I even tried running Malwarebytes in safe mode and nothing came up. Is there something going on with my computer or do I just have some bad luck when it comes to browsing the web?
  6. Hi - every time I open a browser (chrome or firefox) I'm taken to esurf.biz I'm running Windows 10 and I've run AdWare, Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, Eset online scanner, msert.exe and Microsoft Defender. None of them have managed to remove it. However, after running all these, esurf.biz no longer seems to re-direct to Terraclicks.com as it did when esurf.biz first arrived. touch wood. having read your comments to other users, I attach the 2 FRST files you requested they attach. I hope you can help. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  7. running windows 8.1 Pro on HP pavilion G7 laptop I am a premium Malwarebytes user. Chrome is infected and malicious tabs just keep launching on their own. Using AVG free antivirus and Windows firewall. I do not partake in ANY adult content whatsoever. requested log files below. my Malwarebytes Data base is currently V2014.12.02.02. The error i am getting on Malwarebytes is "unable to access update server" and I can't turn on "Malicious Website Protection" I ran Chameleon, but it didn't locate anything. I tried to run as an administrator but that didn't work either. The attachments are first.txt Addition .txt . the forum wouldn't let me upload screenshots. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  8. Hello guys, Recently I have been getting browser re-directs in Google Chrome. Firefox does not exhibit this behavior, so I think it's isolated to Chrome. When ever I search for a term on google, I get the results page, however when I click a link, I get sent to the most useless and inane links that are always selling something like, Car insurance. I am running windows 7 with Microsoft Security Essentials, but have downloaded several scan and removal tools such as spybot S&D, Hitman Pro, RogueKiller, and Malwarebytes to no avail. I need to get rid of these re-directs! I have read the F.A.Q. and attached the two logs: dds.txt attach.txt
  9. I have some sort of browser redirect problem that I cannot make go away. Malware Bytes did find Trojan.Happili but it has been removed and I am still having the browser redirect problems. attach.txt dds.txt
  10. Hi! I have been following other forum suggestions on trying to clean this out. But, I still have redirects! I had "Recommended for You" popups that would hang out on the lower right part of the browser window. I followed the directions of this topic : http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=109884. I used RogueKiller, TDSSKiller, Combofix, and Malawarebytes. Although, I haven't seen the "Recommended for You" Popups lately, I still have redirects... mostly to www.infoflashes.com. I also have ad-aware and avg free versions installed, and they have found nothing. I have been looking at the forums on "browser redirects" and have noticed that they also recommend using the Combofix and Malawarebytes fixes. Maybe I don't know what I am looking for! Any help would be appreciated!
  11. Hello, I'm working on a friend's PC, which was having problems with IE9 links redirecting to shopping/ad sites, ads playing on the speakers (only) without open windows, and with Avira warning messages of various viruses popping (like HTML/IFrame.aeu, TR/ATRAPS.Gen2, W32/Patched.UB, and more). I performed System Restore on it, then ran a full scan with Avira, MWB, and ESET online scanner - which came up as clean, but seem to have only taken care of secondary/tertiary infections (?), some odd problems remained and the old ones popped back up after a few hours of testing. In working on it and investigating, I was led to this topic and (appropriately) directed to start a new thread. I copied a HJT log and (after reading the previous topic) a RogueKiller log onto USB and have them here for review. I'm fairly confident based on the previous topic and multiple others recently that the PC in question as the zeroAccess RK, but I'm not sure what else. Further, I tried to go a step further and download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and use it, however, I don't have access to that PC's Win7 disk, and can not enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options: I'm getting an "ERROR : F3-F100-0004" when I try that. So, if it is a rootkit, is there another option (I have a USB boot drive with some Unix flavor floating around somewhere)? Thank you for your time.

  12. Hi everyone, My computer was recently infected with a virus, which, when I scanned it with MalwareBytes Free, brought up about 10 infections. I quarantined and removed them using MBAM, but "BCMiner" and "Sirefef" still remain. The biggest problem that is visible to me is random browser redirects, but there are probably other things going on beneath the surface. Attach.txt DDS.txt
