Help with yourconnectivity


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm Matteo, an italian user. I have seen that in this forum there are many discussion about yourconnectivity. If i am here, is because I need help with this "virus" (i don't know if it is really a virus). I don't have found any solution in italian, so I am trying to ask help here, I think there are good users that could help me. Sorry for my english, I know it is not very good, however if you don'tunderstand something please ask me, I will try to explain better.

Let's go explain my problem step by step:

- Since two days I have seen that, when I open mt Google Chrome from my Windows 10 PC there is not the starting page with Google, but with yourconnectivity.net;

- I try to remove all extension and tools, to uninstall some programs, to use spyhunter, but I don't have solved the problem;

- On some topic in thi forum I have read that some users use JRT to remove yourconnectivity. I have used this app, and now, when i open my Chrome, I have the starting page with Google, but there is "Searching Bar" that is the same of yourconnectivity . To confirm me that the problem has not been solved, sometimes open me some pages that invite to do sexonline o easy-money (obviously, this pages were opened also when yourconnectivity was my starting page, this is why I think that the problem has not been solved).

Hope to find your help, I am alvailable to any axplanation.

Dear,

Matteo.

Hello Matteo and welcome to Malwarebytes,

My screen name is kevinf80, i`m here to help clean up your system. Make sure to run all scans from accounts with Administrator status, continue as follows please:

Anyone other than the original starter of this thread please DO NOT follow the instructions and advice posted as replies here, my help and advice is NOT related to your system and will probably cause more harm than good...

Change the download folder setting in the default Browser so all tools we may use are saved to the Desktop:

user posted imageGoogle Chrome - Click the "Customize and control Google Chrome" button in the upper right-corner of the browser. user posted image
Choose Settings. at the bottom of the screen click the
"Show advanced settings..." link. Scroll down to find the Downloads section and click the Change... button. Select your desktop and click OK.

Click Browse and select the Desktop and then choose the Select Folder button. Click OK to get out of the download options screen and then click Close to get out of the View Downloads screen.

Now no pages that spokes about sex or money open in my broswer, and also a "searching bar" (that was appeared with youconnectivity) like to be disappeared.

So now the malware has been removed totally from my PC?

Which software do you advice to protect my PC?

Lastly, can I delete all the software and tool to remove yourconnectivity from my PC?

Good to hear your system has improved and malware is gone. All we need to do now is remove tools that we used etc....

Uninstall Sophos AV via Programs and Features..

Next,

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…

Next,

Read the following links to fully understand PC Security and Best Practices, you may find them useful....
