yourtv.link keeps coming back


Recommended Posts


my pc is infected with yourtv.link and i have not been able to remove it yet

i have tried all the possible automatic tools such as adwcleaner, malwarebyte anti-malware, spyhunter, hitmanpro ecc.. but it keeps coming back

as i have read in other topics, the only possible solution at this point is to use FRST

is there someone so kind to help me fix this problem? i am very sorry but i don't know how to write a fixlist, this is the first time i face a similar situation

attached you can find the FRST and  addition files

thank you very much in advance to everyone who can give an hand

Thanks for the update, run the following to clean up:

Use the following Uninstaller tool to remove Sophos:

Download GeekUninstaller from here: http://www.geekuninstaller.com/download (Choose free version) Save Geek.zip to your Desktop. (Visit the Home page at that link for necessary information)

Extract Geek Uninstaller and save to your Desktop. There is no need to install, the executable is portable and can also be run from a USB if required.

Run the tool, the main GUI will populate with installed programs list,

Left click on Program name to highlight that entry.

Select Action from the Menu bar, then Uninstall from there follow the prompts.

If Uninstall fails open the "Action" menu one more time and use "Force Removal" option


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

Or use the following if first link is down:

"Delfix link mirror"

If your security program alerts to Delfix either, accept the alert or turn your security off.

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 <----- this will remove tools we have used.
  • 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 <--- this will reset any system settings back to default that were changed either by us during cleansing or malware/infection

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…
