malwarebytes and AVG free


Recommended Posts

in last day or so, today is Sunday, I've been having problems with FF crashing, avgnsx.exe crashing and something called acrord32.exe causing a problem.

I posted to Mozilla board last night and 7am this morning I read response suggested some Malware sites. About 8am after looking at some others decided on Malwarebytes.

It took a few seconds to download, and other 3 minutes to run scan and these 5 turned up which I deleted.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\minibugtransporter.minibugtransporterx (Adware.Minibug) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\minibugtransporter.minibugtransporterx.1 (Adware.Minibug) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\{04a38f6b-006f-4247-ba4c-02a139d5531c} (Adware.Minibug) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2b96d5cc-c5b5-49a5-a69d-cc0a30f9028c} (Adware.Minibug) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Typelib\{3c2d2a1e-031f-4397-9614-87c932a848e0} (Adware.Minibug) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

On Saturday I ran a 2 hour scan with AVG free and it found some 5 cookies.

Question is.

Can I guess AVG searches for Virus and cookies and Malwarebytes only for Malware? So I will need both Malwarebytes and AVG or any suggestions?

And thanks for helping me find above.

I still have a problem with redirecting.

Going to Google in Firefox I type in malware.

Google opens with lots of links to malware sites including one called to a microsoft site.

I click on it and for a moment see microsoft and then I get taken to

http://www.stopzilla.com/products/stopzill...amp;cid=spyware

I thought Malwarebytes found malware on my site. see previous post.

clicking on above link to stopzilla takes me to microsoft malware site.

Why? Not why am I going from stopzilla but why not directly to link I clicked?
