AVG says and Malwarebytes says WTF?


Recommended Posts

Ok I have MBampro and recently added AVG. MBAM is doing a ton of blocking of outgoing all of a sudden and it says I am clean. AVG on the other hand is showing infections and adware tracking cookies on every scan (says its deleting them but still there next scan). Even showing 2 as rootkits but one is a cookie and other shows as a IRP hook under drivers? Uhm WTF? Never had this before and am kinda stumped as to how or where these come from. Is AVG just being paranoid? What tools should I use to try and sort this out?

Hello jpinks,

If you think you are infected, here are the steps needed to get your computer cleaned....

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

Don't use any temporary file cleaners unless requested - this can cause data loss and make recovery difficult

You have 3 Options that you can choose from as listed below:


  • Option 1 —— Free Expert advice in the Malware Removal Forum
  • Option 2 —— Paying customer -- Contact Support via email
  • Option 3 —— Premium, Fee-Based Support

OPTION 1

As we don't deal with malware removal in the
General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum
, you need to start a topic in the

  • Please read and follow the

    so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.

NOTE:
Please do not post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies.

If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.

      Or

See thats why I posted it here. I am not sure if its false positives from AVG or what. Running a SAS scan now and its showing lots of adware cookies and a pup toolbar I dont know where it came from. I was sugested to try running a Hitman Pro scan on the pc to see if it sees any issues. Not familiar with that program but will probably try it. I am just trying to figure out whats going on. Like I said all of a sudden seeing a bunch of MBAM blocking access alerts.
