Hello,

I am having an issue with my computer.  Yontoo, identified as adware, continues to infect my pc.  I use malwarebytes to scan and quarantine my pc multiple times a day to keep it running smoothly.  I was wondering if there was a way to stop it from coming back.  I have linked Farbar FRST and Addition in this message. 

Thank you for your time,

Hello xxuncoothxx and :welcome:

My screen name is Android8888 but if you wish you can call me Rui which is my real name. I will be helping you with your malware issues. Please ask questions if anything is unclear.

I suggest printing out each set of instructions or copy them to a Notepad file and reading the entire post before proceeding. It will make following them easier.

Please read the instructions carefully and follow the directions in the order listed.

Make sure to run all tools from the computer's Desktop and with Administrator privileges (i.e. right-click the tool icon and select Run as administrator).

Please run one scan at a time.

Once started the malware removal process has to be completed in order to ensure the success of the clean-up. Even if your computer appears to be running better after performing a first set of instructions, it may still be infected as some infections are difficult to remove and can leave remnants on the System. Please consider it clean and safe only when I declare it free of malware.


You have System Restore disabled. System Restore maintains a backup of your system in case you need to return to a previous point, for instance,  due to an infection. Please read the instructions here Turn On System Restore and enable System Restore.


I see that you have a P2P (Peer-to-Peer) file sharing program installed (qBittorrent). It is pretty much certain that if you continue to use P2P programs, you will get infected again. I would recommend that you uninstall it, however that choice is up to you. If you wish to keep it, please do not use it until your computer is cleaned.


While BetterTTV itself is not malware, it is linked to an unwanted Chrome extension with dubious purposes so I strongly suggest you removed it.
Open Google Chrome;
Type chrome://extensions in the address bar and press Enter;
Click the trash can icon by the extension BetterTTV
A confirmation dialog appears, click Remove.


Next,

Follow the instructions below to execute a fix on your system using FRST, and provide the log in your next reply.

  • Download the attached fixlist.txt file, and save it on your Desktop (or wherever your FRST64.exe executable is located); DO NOT open or modify that file!
  • Right-click on the FRST executable and select Run as Administrator;
  • Click on the Fix button;

  • On completion, a message will come up saying that the fix has been completed and it'll open a log in Notepad;
  • Please attach the Fixlog.txt in your next reply;

Next,

  • Download AdwCleaner and move it to your computer Desktop;
  • Right-click on AdwCleaner.exe and select Run as Administrator;
  • Accept the EULA (I accept), then click on Scan;
  • Let the scan complete. Once it's done, make sure that every item listed in the different tabs is checked and click on the Clean button;
  • Once the cleaning process is complete, AdwCleaner will ask to restart your computer, please do it;
  • After the restart, a log will open when logging in. Please copy/paste the content of that log in your next reply.

Next,

  • Open Malwarebytes;
  • On the left pane select Settings;
  • Select the Protection tab;
  • Scroll down to Scan Options and ensure Scan for Rootkits and Scan within Archives are both on and leave all other settings to default.
  • Go back to DashBoard and select the blue Scan Now tab; Note: The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • When the scan completes if potential threats are detected, ensure to checkmark all the listed items, and click the Quarantine Selectedbutton.
  • While still on the Scan tab, click the View Report button, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), give it a name and save it to your Desktop.
  • The log can also be viewed by clicking the log to select it, then clicking the View Report button.
  • Please attach the log in your next reply.


In your next reply please attach:
Fixlog.txt;
AdwCleaner clean log;
Malwarebytes log.

Please let me know what issues or concerns are you still having with the computer.

Thank you.
