Need help

Recommended Posts

I've got a trojan that takes over google and installed an extension called YouTubeBookmark V0.9.  I've tried scanning in safe mode with malwarebytes and avast.   Also i've tried running dds but an error saying it can't run in compatibility mode keeps popping up. I read a post saying to run Farbar Recovery Security tool and have a log from it.   I also downloaded a few tools (rkill, tdsskiller) but only have run rkiller. I am a bit out of my depth on this one.. lol.

You do not mention if any issues/concerns remain, please do so in next reply....


We continue:


We still need to run an online AV scan to ensure there are no remnants of any infection left on your system that we may have missed. This scan is very thorough and well worth running, it can take several hours please be patient and let it complete:


Run Eset Online Scanner


**Note** You will need to use Internet explorer for this scan - Vista and win 7 right click on IE shortcut and run as admin


Go to Eset web page http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/ to run an online scan from ESET.


  • Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan
  • click on the Run ESET Online Scanner button
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
    Click Start
  • When asked, allow the add/on to be installed
    Click Start
  • Make sure that the option Remove found threats is unticked
  • Click on Advanced Settings, ensure the options
  • Scan for potentially unwanted applications, Scan for potentially unsafe applications, and Enable Anti-Stealth Technology are ticked.
    Click Scan
  • wait for the virus definitions to be downloaded
  • Wait for the scan to finish


When the scan is complete


  • If no threats were found
  • put a checkmark in "Uninstall application on close"
  • close program
  • report to me that nothing was found


If threats were found


  • click on "list of threats found"
  • click on "export to text file" and save it as ESET SCAN and save to the desktop
  • Click on back
  • put a checkmark in "Uninstall application on close"
  • click on finish


close program


copy and paste the report in next reply




Download Security Check by screen317 from either of the following:

Double click SecurityCheck.exe (Vista or Windows 7 users right click and select "Run as Administrator") and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box. Press any key when asked.

Adobe Reader is outdated...

Visit http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/otherversions/ and download the latest version of Acrobat Reader


Step 1 - Select your Operating System.

Step 2 - Select your Langauge.

Step 3 - Select latest version.


Untick the option for any security scanner or toolbar if offered.


Download and install.


Having the latest updates ensures there are no security vulnerabilities in your system.




Download "Delfix by Xplode" and save it to your desktop.


Double Click to start the program. If you are using Vista or higher, please right-click and choose run as administrator


Make Sure the following items are checked:


  • Activate UAC
  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Create registry backup
  • Purge System Restore
  • Reset system settings


Now click on "Run" and wait patiently until the tool has completed.


The tool will create a log when it has completed. We don't need you to post this.


Part of the routine will be to create a registry back up with ERUNT,  the back up will be created here:



When all is known to be well with your system you can delete that back up folder, unless you want to keep it….


Let me know if any remaining issues or concerns...
