Removal instructions for Youndoo

Recommended Posts

What is Youndoo?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Youndoo is a browser hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice.
This one belongs to the GsearchFinder family that adds an extra Firefox profile.

How do I know if my computer is affected by Youndoo?

You may see this entry in your list of installed software:

this type of Scheduled Task:

and you will be hijacked to this search page:

and see these settings in your browser(s):

Chrome

warning2.png
Firefox

How did Youndoo get on my computer?

Browser hijackers use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was bundled with other software.

How do I remove Youndoo?

Our program Malwarebytes Anti-Malware can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program.
Due to the nature of this hijack it is better to perform some parts of the removal yourself.
You can skip the parts that are for browsers which you don't have installed.
  • Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to your desktop.
  • Double-click mbam-setup-version.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a check-mark is placed next to the following:
    • Enable free trial of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
    • Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, you will be prompted to download and install the latest version.
  • Remove the new Firefox profile, see detailed instructions in the post below this one.
  • Reset Google Chrome settings, see detailed instructions in the post below this one. This is necessary or the new install will inherit the corrupted settings of the infected one.
  • Uninstall Chrome, see detailed instructions in the post below this one.
  • In Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, select Scan Now. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  • Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
  • If you wish to use Chrome again, do a clean Chrome install,see detailed instructions in the post below this one.
Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Youndoo?
  • No, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware removes Youndoo completely.
  • This PUP creates some scheduled tasks. You can read here how to check for and, if necessary, remove Scheduled Tasks.
How would the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware help protect me?

We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this hijacker.

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware would have protected you against the Youndoo hijacker. It would have warned you before the application could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.

How to remove a fake or infected FireFox profile.
  • Close Firefox so the running browser does not interfere with the fix.
  • Use the key combination Windows key + R to open the Run box.
  • Type or copy the command Firefox -P to open the Firefox profile manager.
    Choices.png
  • Make sure the profile called "Firefox Default" is selected (not the one simply called "default") and click on Delete Profile...
  • When prompted to ask if you want to delete the fake profile, click Delete Files.
    Delete.png
  • Select the option to Use the selected profile without asking at startup by putting a checkmark in the corresponding box.
    Check.png
    If more than one profiles are left in the list, select the one that you would prefer to use. Usually only the default profile will be left and automatically selected.
  • Click the Start Firefox button
  • From now on FireFox will open with the selected profile.
An alternative procedure is to manually edit profiles.ini
Unless you have done so before, you will have to "unhide" hidden files. Information on how to do that can be found here or here.
  • Close Firefox so the running browser does not interfere with the fix.
  • Locate profiles.ini in the folder C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini (for Windows Vista and later).
  • Rightclick on profiles.ini and choose "Edit" from the menu.
  • After this infection it will look like this:
    after.png
    where the ******** are a random 8 digit string representing your profile from before the infection.
    The second profile in the list is the one created by this infection.
  • Edit the 1 behind StartWithLastProfile and replace it with a 0 (zero), so the line now looks like this:
    SetToZero.png
  • Save the edited file by clicking File > Save.
  • This will prompt FireFox to ask you which profile you want to use the next time you run it.
    Choices.png
  • Make sure the profile called "Firefox Default" is selected (not the one simply called "default") and click on Delete Profile...
  • When prompted to ask if you want to delete the fake profile, click Delete Files.
    Delete.png
  • Select the option to Use the selected profile without asking at startup by putting a checkmark in the corresponding box.
    Check.png
    If more than one profiles are left in the list, select the one that you would prefer to use. Usually only the default profile will be left and automatically selected.
  • Click the Start Firefox button
  • From now on FireFox will open with the selected profile.
If there are other browser settings that you would like to change like the default search engine or the startpage, we advise to have a look at our Restore Browser page.
