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 seems to be a chromium derivative but i can't seem to find any traces of chromium left-overs from today's blunder. Thanks in advance for any help. My job is on the line. AdwCleaner[S08].txt
Recently ADWCLEANER has been detecting a Pup.Legacy. Sometimes I am able to send the PUP to Quarantine Heaven. But other times this fails and it takes multiple attempts for purge the pesky pup. Nonetheless the bad boy keeps returning. Can you advise me how to permanently get rid of it? Attached find ADWCLEANER Log Report. Thank you AdwCleaner_Debug.log
Hello, I am having trouble with PUP.Optional.Legacy in Chrome. Tried multiple scanners, only AdwCleaner detects it I've been battling this beast for a while now. What I've done so far: I've clean installed windows twice. I have reset chrome settings multiple times. I have reset chrome sync multiple times.I have deleted cookies, preferences and all files from %LOCALAPPDATA% for Chrome. I have installed Chrome from the offline installer. I have cut the internet connection and did all of those steps again. I've narrowed it down to this: At first I thought it comes from my profile/sync. But I have done the steps below, without internet connection and it keeps coming back. It is somehow connected with the search engines/search providers of Chrome and/or Chrome settings. I can clean it with AdwCleaner, or manually remove the search engines from Chrome settings and it seems to disappear. But even if it does, after a few minutes, Chrome starts lagging, freezing a lot, and loading pages very, very slowly. I can tab out of Chrome and go to another browser, enter the web site and it will fully load, while in Chrome it is still loading. I run a scan with AdwCleaner - nothing, but I know it's there, my browser is lagging so bad... Here how it always comes back. Every time I click on "Reset settings" in Chrome, the adware/virus comes back. This additional search engines appear in the settings: And after a scan, these are the results: And here is the Log File from the scan: AdwCleaner[S70].txt I am not smart enough to handle this on my own. I need help.
