Unknown images in browsing- Strange Malware ?

Recommended Posts



Whenever I open any site, sometimes I see unknown images replacing the original image on the website. They are not ads, & can't be clicked. Just random images of people, cartoons etc.


When I refresh the page, the fake images are gone.


This problem was temporarily resolved when I installed Windows 10 (with Format my C:) & I installed malwarebytes and bitdefender. Malwarebytes detected and removed some infections. But when I removed malwarebytes temporarily due to an error, Fake images started appearing again on the websites.


I am using Opera Browser with no Ad ons, extensions etc & I regularly clean the temporary files using Ccleaner utility. I have bitdefender and Malwarebytes installed.


Where is the problem, please help. I've been trying to solve this for the last 3 months.

Hello and :welcome: :



I'm not familiar with Opera, but perhaps there are ad-blocking extensions for it, as there are for Firefox?

Along those same lines, do you see the same behavior with a different browser on the same site?


This doesn't sound like a problem with MBAM, per se.

So, if you think you might be infected or just would like a bit of expert help checking the system, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
It explains the options for free, expert help >>AND<< the suggested, preliminary steps to expedite the process.
A malware analyst will assist you with looking into your issue.
