Accosted By Adware - Majuwe, Superfish

Recommended Posts

Even the best of us pick up adware from time to time.  While I'm far from the best of us, I'm still no exception it seems.


A couple of days ago I noticed that my NoScript addon for Firefox was displaying a rather oddly named site called 'Majuwe.com' in the script list.  Then I noticed it was on every page I opened.  Google, Tumblr, Yahoo - everything.  On a hunch, I tried opening a private window and was met with this grizzly list.


Needless to say, I took action immediately: locked down my online banking, ran some google searches, blindly followed a lot of random advice, and fumbling about stupidly in general.  When, unsurprisingly, none of that worked, I decided to come seek professional help.


The adware isn't actually DOING anything noticable - NoScript is shutting it down as far as Firefox is concerned - but obviously it could be doing a plethora of things I am unaware of, and I'm rightfully worried that there is something more sinister lurking somewhere in the cracks.


A few things of note;  I could find almost no information on 'majuwe' as far as malware is concerned; the only post even mentioning it happened to be what led me to this site in the first place.  Also, there was an unrecognized folder in my Program Files called 'Jelbrus Secure Web' which I promptly deleted without considering the registry at all (as stated, I am a moron).


Attached you will find the requested documents.  After reading your rules (after running this scan), I removed bitorrent from my computer (I had installed it a while back to help set up PSO2, a foreign F2P MMO.)


Sorry for the long-winded story, and thank you in advance!
