Hello,
    
 
They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.
 
     
    
Before we start please read and note the following:

  • Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
  • Please be patient. I know it is frustrating when your PC isn't working properly, but malware removal takes time.
  • Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
  • Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a More reply options button, that gives you Upload Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
  • Always execute my instructions in given order. If for some reason you cannot completely follow one instruction, inform me about that.
  • Stay with me to the end, the absence of symptoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
  • Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
  • Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.

:excl: I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
:excl: There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

Great Thanks very much. The actual pop up stopped as I put my first post in. I am guessing it must be some kndof timed duration attack on ports for vulnerability then it stops. Probably once computer restarts it might of rebooted itself. But thanks to your Guru Style intervention I no longer have to worry. Thank you very much And I hope you have a great xmas and new year and your family

Glad I could help. We will delete all used tools and I'll give you some tips to harden your security and learn how to protect yourself :)

icon_exclaim.gifMUST READ - general maintenance:

The Importance of Software Updating:

 

 
In order to stay protected it is very important that you regularly update all of your software. Cybercriminals depend on the apathy of users around software updates to keep their malicious endeavor running.
 
Operating systems, such as Windows, and applications, such as Adobe Reader or JAVA, are used by tens of millions of computers and devices around the world, making them a huge target for cybercriminals. Downloading updates and installing them can sometimes be tedious, but the advantages you get from the updates are certainly worth it.

Recommended additional software:

 
 
icon_arrow.gifTFC - to clean unneeded temporary files.
icon_arrow.gifMalwarebytes' Anti-Malware - to scan your system from time to time in search for malware.
icon_arrow.gifMalwarebytes' Anti-Exploit - to prevent plenty of mostly exploited vulnerabilities.
icon_arrow.gifMcShield - to prevent infections spread by removable media.
icon_arrow.gifUnchecky - to prevent from installing additional foistware, implemented in legitimate installations.
icon_arrow.gifFiheHippo.com Update Checker - to keep your programs up-to-date.
icon_arrow.gifAdblock - to surf the web without annoying ads! 
 
 

Post-cleanup procedures:

 

 
Download DelFix by Xplode and save it to your desktop.

  • Run the tool by right click on the 51a5ce45263de-delfix.png icon and Run as administrator option.
  • Make sure that these ones are checked:
    • Remove disinfection tools
    • Purge system restore
    • Reset system settings
  • Push Run.
  • The program will run for a few seconds and display a notepad report. You do not need to attach it.

The tool will also record healthy state of registry and make a backup using ERUNT program in %windir%\ERUNT\DelFix
Tool deletes old system restore points and create a fresh system restore point after cleaning.

Great thanks TwinHeadedddddEagle. Only thing is that idlecrawler program is still on the comuter. I cannot uninstall it. But I cannot see it anyware in processes and I am not getting redirects. Obviously I would rather it be gone but if it is not doing anything it prob means its reliant upon something you removed.

 

 

 

Best wishes

Richard

Hiya Yes that idle crawler has gone but my settings on somethings are out of sync. Nothing major . Like the anti-virus icons on the pop up on the taskbar are no longer there and recently viewed websites doesn't work now it just shows the header but no info. and the icon for my camera no longer appears on the task bar when I plug it in the usb port. I had to make a short cut on desktop and open it from there. Nothing I can't live with. I was more worried about idlecrawler. But yes everything seems fine. I will just say don't trust CNET anymore. its gone rogue. Most programs are now full of malware or spyware. Apparently they no longer check the programs. I googled cnet reputation a it is the only site I download from. That idle crawler was prob bundled on one of the d/l I got from them. BVut the majority of the reports. People didn't have much confidence in them any longer after being faithful patrons both on free and pay for programs.

 

I am very greatful you were able to assist me. I am a lot wiser for sure. Which is the lesson learned :ph34r::D

 

 

Merry xmas and a prosperous new year to you and your family

 

Richard
