Remove FbDownloader

Recommended Posts



I've read the MWB article on the referenced. I've checked uninstall and the program is not there (alphabetized listing by Name (Fb?) and Publisher (HTTO)).


I've searched the drive for fb*.* using 'Everything' and find nothing.


But the damn thing still replaces the homepage in FF.

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

During the interim I again searched on the topic and found reliable evidence for adwcleaner_3.215.exe. I ran the software, unchecked several items that I wasn't sure should be deleted, rebooted and FF opened absent the homepage replacement.


I plan on running that software again and this time doing more research on the items I deselected to see if in fact they're worthy of deleting or keeping.


I greatly appreciate your quick response.
