This particular one was installed by a bundler.How do I remove ExtenBro?Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program. Due to the nature of this DNS changer you may have to change your DNS settings first. If you can't find the preferred settings on the website of your internet-service provider (ISP), you can follow the appropiate instructions on the OpenDNS site. When you are looking at the DNS settings, make sure to click Advanced and look at the DNS tab Make sure that only two of those entries are left and that they match the preferred settings that you found, before you close the Internet Connection settings menu's. Do not reboot your system yet, because the Scheduled Task will re-instate the malicious DNS settings. You may have to restart your browser to make it use the new settings. Now you should be able to reach the blocked sites again and you can continue with the instructions below. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected. Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
