Recommended Posts

Hello Daisy: :welcome:

If you think you are infected, here are the steps needed to get your computer cleaned:

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

You have 3 Options that you can choose from as listed below:

  • Option 1 —— Free Expert advice in the Malware Removal Forum
  • Option 2 —— Paying customer -- Contact Support via email
  • Option 3 —— Premium, Fee-Based Support

OPTION 1

As we don't deal with malware removal in the
General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum
, you need to start a topic in the
Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs subforum
so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

  • Please read and follow the
    , skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a
    .

  • After posting your new post, make sure under
    options
    , you select
    Track this topic
    and choose
    Immediate Email Notification
    , so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.

  • One of the
    there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

  • Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer such as (Install/Uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.

NOTE:
Please DO NOT post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies. If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.
    • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.

      Or

    • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.

OPTION 2

Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk at

OPTION 3

It is a rogue or fake security program that tells you that you are infected in the hopes of convincing you to purchase their fake security software. It is usually contracted by visiting a page that is either itself infected, or a page that contains an advertisement that is infected.

If you are showing any symptoms, such as fake security alerts and having trouble running scanners, like Malwaraebytes' Anti-Malware then please follow 1PW's above instructions, but if you are able to perform a Quick Scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it comes back clean, then you should be fine and Malwarebytes likely prevented the infection from getting into your system. Just be sure to check for updates before performing the scan so that you are using the latest detection definitions :).
