Dns Unlocker

Recommended Posts

Despite having Malwarebytes Pro (MB_Pro) installed, dns unlocker still managed to infect my computer. After running MB_Pro several times, and some other removal programs, some PUP were detected and removed; however, after launching Mozilla Firefox and effecting a search, the adware problems returned.  Please help.

Hello and :welcome:

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll try to help your with your issue.



Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them.
Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.

  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

Hi TwinHeadedEagle,

Thanks for responding to my post. Please find the requested files, obtained via use of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool, attached.  I hope that my efforts to remove the stated adware infection, prior to finding this site, does not hamper your efforts to help me rid my computer of this infection.

Thanks again.

[IMG] Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

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

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 [IMG] icon and select [IMG] 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 attach it to your reply.

The text file was down loaded and placed on my desktop as instructed.  After starting, the scan tool stopped working and my computer froze requiring me to reboot the system.  The process was repeated several times each time with the same result. I ensured that the both FRST and fixlist.txt were in the same folder as well as on my desktop. A Fixlog.txt (attached) was generated on one of these attempts even though the scan did not appear to go to completion. I am not certain if the infection has been removed so no attempted has been made to use the browser on the infected computer.  Please advise how to proceed from here.

You “Rock” TwinHeadedEagle.  I have tested my computer off and on for a couple of days and it appears that the redirecting adware in no longer affecting my computer. Thanks very much for your assistance.  

 I have Malwarebytes Pro and Microsoft Essential actively protecting my computer. Can you advise how this problematic software still got through?   

I would like to make a donation.  Will it go through to you?
