Grillaprice and how to counter it?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. So a few months ago I was downloading some game files and it also downloaded some PUP. One of these PUPs were Grillaprice. This was the worm that got me very interested in computers. So I tried to take care of it by running Malwarebytes and AVG. It looked all good once I cleaned it. But when I ran it again and again each time it would say it was there. When I tried uninstalling it from the computer it just pulled to the site and asked to DOWNLOAD the uninstaller (didn't trust it so I didn't)

 

Later I resorted to completely resetting the computer. My question is: what is it that I did wrong? Was it that Grillaprice is a strong worm. Some Chrome extension kept it? I also had some friends that got infected with it too. They came to me and I couldn't do anything except tell them to hard reset! How do you get rid of Grillaprice!?

 

-Thank you!

 

Note: I am not infected with it now

Very unlikely an actual worm. Though they are out there they're not all that common.

 

Please review the posting here and there is a list of schools that teach malware detection and removal if you're interested in learning and helping others. It takes the average user about a year to a year and a half to complete training but along the way most learn a very good skill that will be useful the rest of their life.
