adware infection - bought malwarebytes and some other things, to no avail...


Recommended Posts

I thought these attached files may be helpful.

 

I noticed some results showing up after internet searches by "many results hub", and tried to remove that from my computer. It no longer shows up as an installed program, but the results are still showing and that searchinterneat-a.akamaihd.net still keeps trying to hijack new tabs or searches, but is being blocked by malwarebytes.

Logs do not indicate any obvious malware or infection, if no issues or concerns run the following to clean up:

 

Download "Delfix by Xplode" and save it to your desktop.

Or use the following if first link is down:

"Delfix link mirror"

Double Click to start the program. If you are using Vista or higher, please right-click and choose run as administrator

Make Sure the following items are checked:



  •    
  • Remove disinfection tools
       
  • Purge System Restore <--- this will remove all previous and possibly exploited restore points, a new point relative to system status at present will be created.
       
  • Reset system settings



Now click on "Run" and wait patiently until the tool has completed.

The tool will create a log when it has completed. We don't need you to post this.

Any remnant files/logs from tools we have used can be deleted…
