Removal instructions for AppStein

Recommended Posts

What is AppStein?

 

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that AppStein is a browser hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice. This one also displays advertisements.

 

How do I know if my computer is effected by AppStein?

 

This is how the first screen of the installer looks:

and this entry in your list of installed programs:

You may also see this icon, which can also be there for legitimate reasons:

How did AppStein get on my computer?

 

Browser hijackers use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was bundled with other software.

 

How do I remove AppStein?

 

Our program Malwarebytes Anti-Malware can detect and remove this potentially unwanted application.

  • Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to your desktop.
  • Double-click mbam-setup-version.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a check-mark is placed next to the following:
    • Enable free trial of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
    • Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, you will be prompted to download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Scan now. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • When the scan is complete , make sure that everything is set to "Quarantine", and click Apply Actions.
  • Reboot your computer if prompted.
Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of AppStein?
  • No, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware removes AppStein completely.
How would the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware help protect me?

 

We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this hijacker.  

 

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware would have protected you against the AppStein hijacker. It would have warned you before the browser helper object could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.
