Using Windows 10. I've had various bits of Malware install on my machine, including Max Video Player and Wajam. It appears I have removed most of it but it has left my PC in a state. Some Wajam files keep coming back though. AVG won't start and I cannot reinstall or uninstall it (click on these buttons does nothing). Even clicking on the freshly downloaded install EXE file does nothing. Windows Update no longer works (error is: 0x80070422) Google Chrome takes minutes to load some websites now. I use Classic Shell for my Start Menu - I can't often get to 'Programs' as it crashes Windows Explorer. I'm thinking reinstalling Windows is the best option but I'd rather not. That being said - going onto 'Settings' and 'Recovery' and trying to reset the PC does nothing. Any ideas?
Hello - I have been “infected” by some sort of browser redirect, where ALL Google searches on both Chrome AND Safari are automatically redirected to Yahoo. On Chrome, the tab w/ results says “Wajam Yahoo Search” and on Safari, a URL that includes “searchpage.com” appears briefly before the Yahoo results page. I’ve tried multiple things on various forums and YouTube video, but nothing addresses this specific problem. Malwarebytes found 7 threats that were cleared, but none of them solved for the browser redirect problem. Please help, I’m getting desperate and don’t want to resort to a time machine backup restore.
Hi All,I am having an issue where when I do a google search, it redirects to yahoo search, but shows as search.yahoo wajam. I cannot figure out how to remove this. I tried Malwarebytes and it is not picking it up. I tried chrome extensions and wajam is not listed. I removed all extensions and even removed chrome and tried to reinstall. It only affects google search. Anything I can do. This happens on all browsers. I am assuming it is spyware? I have looked at many wajam removal sites, but I do not have anything on my mac that has wajam. Here are some screenshots after google searching the word "test". Then someone suggesting altering my DNS which I tried too. Malwarebytes comes up clean. Please see what a google search for the word test redirects to. It completely changes to wajam yahoo. I do not have any wajam on my computer. Thanks,Matt
