  1. From Browser Guard combats privacy abuse, tracking, clickbait, and scammers | Malwarebytes Labs: Where Malwarebytes Browser Guard alone is installed: what's the database update frequency?
  2. Hi, I have Malwarebytes Premium installed which does not give me any kind of problem in the scan, but if I run Adwcleaner it is a "PUP.Optional.Legacy Chrome Avira SafeSearch Plus extension". After removing it through Adwcleaner, on the next restart Google Chrome installs it again even if I deny the authorization. I searched on the forum and in the closed post "I'm infected - What do I do now?" it was written to open a new one with the FRST.txt and Addition.txt files attached and so here I am. The result of Adwcleaner is also attached. Thank you. Addition.txt FRST.txt

  4. If this needs to be be in a different forum please let me know where is needs to be posted. Thanks. When Google Chrome launched two BlockBlock ksinstall notifications for GoogleSoftwareUpdateAgent are presented. I have attached a screenshot that includes both notifications. I have selected the 'remember' checkbox, then clicked the 'Allow' button many times. They still are presented each time Chrome is launched. Is there something that I should do to prevent this, other than not using Chrome?
  5. The problem is when ever I quarantine PUP.Optional.EasyLife after opening up chrome again it comes back if I scan again. it's located in C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default and it is the Secure Prefrences file. I think it's something to do with chrome sync which brings back the PUP after I reopen chrome. I don't want to clear my chrome sync data like passwords and bookmarks, anyone know how I can resolve this issue. maybe just edit the secure preferences file using notepad++ idk anyone else have this problem and figured out how to fix it?

  6. Hello everyone, I just read this article and got a little worried: https://www.howtogeek.com/fyi/bing-is-pushing-malware-when-you-search-for-chrome/ I have three quick questions that I hope someone could help me with: 1. If you actually run that phony installer, will it still act as the official installer? As in everything will act normally but you actually have a hidden malware in your Chrome? 2. If I installed Chrome a while ago, how can I check that my installation is genuine and not a fake Google Chrome? I don' have the installer anymore. 3. Would a Malwarebytes scan detect a bad installation? I ran a scan and it didn't find anything. Thank you and have an awesome day!
  7. My mother recently informed me of invasive pop-ups on her computer, and having had previous experience with Conduit malware, my heart sank :( Sure enough, she somehow downloaded malware, showing up as "Microsoft Office 365 - en-us" from "Microsoft Corporation", "version 16.0.10730.20102". I've run Malwarebytes, HItmanpro, and have Revo uninstaller at the ready, but have not found a site that can tell me how to remove it all, and it's been years since I had Conduit, so my memory's a little fuzzy. The Malwarebytes report is attached below- Please HELP!! malware1.txt
  8. Hello, I searched on internet and on the forums here but cound't find what I'm looking for. I have been using AdwCleaner for a long time, and never found something that couldn't be removed by it. The problem is this: I removed all malware from the computer with antivirus and antimalware software, everything seemed to be running ok, but as soon as I open Google Chrome, it displays the Chrome Cleaner Pro extension/add-on and 3 more unwanted extensions. If I check the computer with AdwCleaner it does detect the malware and removes it but not completely I guess, since after every restart of the PC as soon as Google Chrome is loaded, those "extensions" appear again, AdwCleaner detects them an removes them but as I said, Google Chrome is unusable since it activates those malware programs over and over. So, for now I'm going to remove everything again, remove the "extensions" with AdwCleaner and uninstall Google Chrome to see if that works. If it does I'll post it here but I'm also open to ideas.
  9. After updating Chrome, Adwcleaner detected 2 PUP ... Is this a mistake? Sorry for using Google translate to submit this report. Edit: I've already signed in to multiple Google Accounts on Chrome.
  10. Google Chrome keeps opening a second process of itself without a window (there's only the window I have open). If I look in Task Manager, the website on it is things like "Crusty (Insert words)", Facebook login, and about:blank. The second process doesn't close when I close Google Chrome and it reopens itself if I close it even if the other Google Chrome isn't open. I have background sync off and it uses the same file as the Google Chrome process that DOES open a window. I need to know how to get rid of it without removing Google Chrome entirely (yes, I tried reinstalling Google Chrome, it didn't work).
  11. Hi guys, Everytime I open Google Chrome, Malwarebytes blocks an Outbound Connection to hanstrakr.com. This started happening recently, and there's nothing funky going on in my Extensions, Sync, or Search Engine settings. I'm unsure of where it's coming from. Not much is said on it accept that it may be connected to Data Mining, but even those people aren't certain. Below is a list of the most recent Outbound Connection it made. Does anyone know what this is, and how to stop it? --- Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 5/21/18 Protection Event Time: 9:16 PM Log File: b32c10ac-5d5d-11e8-851d-54ab3a4722fe.json Administrator: Yes -Software Information- Version: 3.4.5.2467 Components Version: 1.0.342 Update Package Version: 1.0.5194 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 16299.431) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System -Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 , , Blocked, [-1], [-1],0.0.0 -Website Data- Category: RiskWare Domain: www.hanstrackr.com IP Address: 34.252.20.187 Port: [54498] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe (end)
