  1. Along with many others I had been bothered with the PUP that was related to the Chrome browser. With the help of MWB staff I managed to rid the PUP and had deleted Chrome. However I have been using AVAST Safe Zone but was not able to import my bookmarks so reinstalled Chrome and once I synced to recover my settings and bookmarks etc the PUP returned. However after the scan and deleting the PUP and repeating the scan to see if the PUP was gone MWB was locked by two pop up windows, one titled network settings the other network error, both erroneous, I believe these are the remnants that ens
  2. Hi, A few weeks ago I got help on this forum with an adware related problem, which seemed to be over after I followed the necessary steps to remove it. Now I have suddenly been getting annoying Greatdeal and Rightcoupon ads for a few days and decided to do a scan with MWB (added in attachment), and it showed adware.elex, adware.ghokswa and RiskWare.IFEOHijack. How do I get rid of these? It seems adware related viruses keep coming back. Thanks, Simon Addition.txt FRST.txt Malwarebyteslog28-05.txt
  3. Hi there, I have been struggling for over a week now with removing Adware.Elex and Adware.Ghoskwa. Every time I restart it is a matter of minutes and my PC is infected again. Apps I've tried include: JRT, Adware cleaner, Malwarebytes scan,Avast antivirus scan, eset online scan and sophos virus removal tool.
  4. Hi There, I have been having a few problems with Adware.Elex recently, but turns out the problem has stemmed from quite a long time ago. I have been trying my best to fight off the terribly annoying adware but every scan and quarantine i do it just keeps coming back stronger and stronger. I think it has something to do with my Internet Explorer, but im on Windows 10 and i think it shouldnt be there in the first place seeing that IE was replaced by Edge. Any help would be so greatly appreciated, im tempted to wipe my whole boot drive clean and start fresh. attached are 2
  5. Hello, I've been infected with malware named Elex and Ghokswa. I've tried to quarantine and or delete the virus with Malwarebytes but they will always reappear in future scans after rebooting or updating my computer.

  6. Hi, yesterday I've finished to install some windows updates and this morning when I've opened my Chrome my search engine got replaced by another unintended search engine ( "Lucking Search " or something similar). I've decided to run malwarebytes and the analysis returned more than 5000 (!) entries on malware detection. I've put everything to quarantine. I've read some other guides on internet and downloaded the adwcleaner, which got 22 results. Restarted the PC , the problem with the browser was gone. However, for some reason, I was unable to delete the files from quarantine so I've decided to
  7. Hi! Some strange malwares are still coming back after the removal. I scanned with AdwCleaner, Mlawarebytes Anti-Malware (Free and trial for MB 3 Premium) Which are contanty appearing are: adware.ELEX and BIT files (AdwCleaner). While I was checking some files I found ACLMInstaller. I never saw it before so, I don't know if it is a safe archieve or not. Also, I recently received a notification: Site Blocked. It was the next: dubailyfestyleap (Which I don't know and I don't mind to enter there as well...) The thing is, I don't know how, I cannot delete this virus/malware/adwa
  8. My computer recently got infected by various kinds of malware, so I bought Malwarebytes Premium and I'm very happy about it: it cleaned almost every single malware installed on my PC. Well, I said "almost". No matter what I do, Adware.Elex keeps coming back. I'll quarantine it, restart my PC, and it's back. I also keep getting warnings about an external IP address trying to access my computer. How can I fix this? Please find attached the log files from Farbar Recovery Scan Tool, as requested. Thanks in advance! Addition.txt FRST.txt
