Struggling with a similar issue as the user that posted this question:

 

https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/161188-proxy-server-1270019880/

 

Fiance somehow managed to d/l a virus I can't find much on. Not visible in Programs or Browser Extensions, but has completely hijacked all of my browsers by changing registry files.

 

Ran the initial adwcleaner scan/clean. Turned up:

 

File Deleted : C:\Users\Sauter\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\hxxp_www.superfish.com_0.localstorage
File Deleted : C:\Users\Sauter\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\hxxp_www.superfish.com_0.localstorage-journal
File Deleted : C:\Users\Sauter\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\hxxps_inst.shoppingate.info_0.localstorage
File Deleted : C:\Users\Sauter\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\hxxps_inst.shoppingate.info_0.localstorage-journal
File Deleted : C:\Users\Sauter\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\hxxp_static.re-markable00.re-markable.net_0.localstorage
File Deleted : C:\Users\Sauter\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\hxxp_static.re-markable00.re-markable.net_0.localstorage-journal

seemed to be the impetus behind running ads by SASA hijacked content

 

After the adwcleaner scan, ran the advice from TwinHeadedEagle in the above referenced post but ran into a hiccup with the Farbar tool.

 

Followed the advice, but any time I tried to run a fix, I get the following message followed by an autoshutdown of the Farbar tool:

 

"Warning: Looks like you don't know what to do. To prevent damage to the system the tool will exit."

 

How can I complete the process/fix? Do I need to attach my fixlist/addition .txt files and have a custom list made? Would that even work with this error message involved?

FRST.gif Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool
 


icon_exclaim.gif This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine. icon_exclaim.gif
icon_exclaim.gif Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. icon_exclaim.gif

 
Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:
 
Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

  • Right-click on FRST.gif icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
  • When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please post it to your reply.

Alright, done! Here's the fixlog. Things are looking much better upon initial inspection. If it holds up (or if you need me to do anything else, just let me know), you have SEVERAL beers coming your way...

Thanks again

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.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.
