Can't get rid of yourtv.link and custom google search


Recommended Posts

Hey,

I recently got infected by malware that makes my homepage yourtv.link on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. I have tried various guides online and downloaded Malwarebytes and ADWCleaner and nothing will get rid of it.

When I restart my computer it seems like my chrome.exe and MozillaFirefox.exe are being replaced and something is forcing that to happen. I may not be entirely right, but that is what seems to be happening.

I read some other topics on this forum and it seems that the users that start the topics are often asked to upload a Farbar Recovery tool so I did a scan. The FRST.txt file is attached.

Thanks in advance.

Hey TwinHeadedEagle,

This morning when I turned on my computer Malwarebytes blocked a potentially threatening program. It was C:\ProgramData\mlbh\mlbh.exe and it wanted to block something called "PUP.YourTv.Link" I think and I went to take a shot of it with snipping tool but it went down when I started the snipping tool. Just thought I would tell you. I think that is possibly the problem area because when I look for the folder (with hidden folders visible) I can't find the mlbh folder in ProgramData.

Anyway, I have attached my Addition.txt and FRST.txt files from the scan I just did.

Thanks

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 finishes FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please attach it to your reply.
