PopUps don't get detected by Malwarebytes


Recommended Posts

So, I made a really dumb move by trying to downoad a programm that i knew wasn't safe and now, while I'm browsing on chrome, at random times, a new tab opens by itself and redirects me to some sports websites like "stoiximan.gr". I tried scanning my pc with Malwarebytes but it found nothing, windows deffender als finds nothing, and reseting google chrome seems to do nothing. Now I saw an article around here from a guy with the same problem and tried to follow the instructions given to him but, when i try to search for AdwCleaner, as was suggested to him, my browser crashed and, honestly, that kind of freaks me out.

This thing that's happening is really annoying and it slows my browser's performance down substancially. Especially after the crashes with AdwCleaner and some other time when my pc was on stand- by and it had opened about 40 tabs on it's own, I'm really starting to freak out. What should I do??? Please HELP!

Hi,

Thanks for posting in the Malware Removal for Windows Help forum. Being infected is not fun and can be very frustrating to resolve, but don't worry because we have a team of experts here help you!!

Note: Please be patient. When the site is busy it can take up to 48 hours before a malware removal helper can assist you. If no one has replied to your new topic after 48 hours please contact an Administrator to let them know.

First, if you haven't done so, please run a Threat Scan with the latest version of Malwarebytes. This may resolve your malware infection issue without the need for additional support. Click "Reveal Hidden Contents" below for details:

Next, if you're still experiencing issues after running Malwarebytes, then technical logs will be required to assist you. Click "Reveal Hidden Contents" below and follow the instructions to run the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool:

Don't use any temporary file cleaners unless requested - this can cause data loss and make a recovery difficult.

Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool here and save it to your desktop. Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  1. Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
  2. Press the Scan button.

  3. It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach or copy and paste it to your reply.
  4. The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've run it before it may not and you may need to select it manually.
     

Finally, attach the Malwarebytes Threat Scan, FRST.txt and Additional.txt logs to your reply. Before submitting your reply, be sure to enable "Notify me of replies" like so:   notify me.jpeg

I can't download it, it crashes again when i search it. As soon as I try to search anything related to it, my browser just shuts down. Maybe it'll work if you can send it as a file for me to download? The same thing happened with the other programm I was talking about. It's kinda creepy...

Hi,

Please download the attached Fixlist.txt file to  the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
The location is listed in the 3rd line of the FRST.txt log you have submitted.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait.

The tool will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

Let me know what problem persists.

p.s.

Can you post the SpyBot report for my review.

Thanks.
