Hello! There is a persistent adware I cannot seem to rid my computer of. It presents advertisements on all websites on all browsers despite adblock being on. I've tried deleting the offending 'extensions' in Chrome and resetting IE. Then I do a full Panda virus scan and delete any items that come up. But, after some time, it all comes back. Please help! Thank you :)

 

P.S. I am attaching the FRST logs because copy/pasting them gives me an error when creating the topic. :/

Hello interpolarity and :welcome:

My name is Bruce1270 and I will be helping you with your malware problem.

Please Note: I am still in training and my fixes have to be approved by my instructor so there may be a slight delay in my replies. Look upon it as a good thing though in that you have two people looking at your problem.

A few things before we get started.

  • Please read all instructions carefully. If there is anything you do not understand please ask me first before doing anything.
  • Please be patient. I am a volunteer who does this in my spare time so I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.
  • Please follow all instructions in the order given.
  • Please do not install any other software unless advised. This may hinder the removal process.
  • At the top of your post, please click on the "Follow this topic" button and make sure that the "Received notification" box is checked and set to "Instantly" This will send an email to you as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to solve your problem faster.
  • Please make sure you reply within 4 days to my responses, if there is no reply within 4 days, the topic will be closed and you will need to request the topic be reopened.


    Important!

    Please save or print off these instructions. Part of this fix may require you to be in safe mode where you will not be able to access the internet or my instructions!

    I would strongly recommend you back up your personal data and folders before we begin.

    Malware removal can be very long, complicated and may take multiple steps. I understand this may be frustrating but please stay with this topic until your machine is declared clean. The results will hopefully be very rewarding. :happy:
    As we go along please tell me how the computer is running now. Please be as descriptive as possible e.g. I'm still getting web redirects, I am unable to access the internet etc.

    I will analyse your logs and will have a fix for you soon. :)

Hello interpolarity

Once again apologies for the delay and thanks for your patience and understanding.

First let's try an FRST fix.

Step1

I noticed that you run FRST64.exe from Users\Antonio\Downloads folder. Please move it to your Desktop. You can do it by right-clicking FRST64.exe, click Cut, then go to Desktop, right-click any free space and click Paste. For the FRST fix to work both FRST64.exe and fixlist.txt must be in the same location and the desktop is where the software is most effective from.

Step2 - FRST fix


NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system.

Download the attached fixlist.txt to your desktop.Attached File  fixlist.txt   1.18KB   101 downloads
  • Ensure fixlist.txt is in the same location as FRST.exe on your desktop.
    FRSTfix.JPG
  • Run FRST by right clicking on it and selecting Run as Administrator and press Fix
  • On completion a log (fixlog.txt) will be generated.
  • Please select all text in this fix, copy (CTRL + C) and then Paste (CTRL + V) in your next reply.

    Thanks

Hi Interpolarity

The log from ESET is fine and we'll remove what it's found. Subject to no further issues with your computer I will clean up my tools and offer some advice on protection and staying safe on the web.

Step1 - FRST fix


NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system.

Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:
 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Panda Security\Panda Security Protection\Tools\PandaSecurityTb.exe
C:\Users\Antonio\AppData\Local\Temp\{91B10D7A-7B37-4B4A-A93D-24D9AA83874E}.exe
DeleteQuarantine:
EmptyTemp:

  • Save this as fixlist.txt, in the same location as FRST.exe on your desktop.
    FRSTfix.JPG
  • Run FRST by right clicking on it and selecting Run as Administrator and press Fix
  • On completion a log (fixlist.txt) will be generated.
  • Please select all text in this fix, copy (CTRL + C) and then Paste (CTRL + V) in your next reply.



    Now for the Good News! - Your system now appears to be clean. :)
    Now for some clean up and "housekeeping" procedures.

    A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:
  • Download Delfix from here
  • Locate the file and right click on it. Click on Run as Administrator.
  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is ticked
    Also tick:
  • Create registry backup
  • Purge system restore

    delfix.jpg
  • Click Run

    The program will run for a few moments and then notepad will open with a log. Please paste the log in your next reply

    General

    Check Windows Updates is set to automatic
    • Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then press ENTER.
    • Click the Automatic Updates tab.
    • Ensure it is set to Automatic (recommended) Automatically download recommended updates for my computer and install them option.
    Malwarebytes - This is a great program for helping keep your system clean. Update and run weekly.


    Optional Programs

    Unchecky is a small service that runs in the background to help keep those "extra toolbars" and tag along search engines from automatically installing. By automatically directing you to a custom install with all the options unchecked, only what you manually choose and confirm gets installed.
  • Download Unchecky to your desktop
  • Right click on the Unchecky_setup and choose to Run as Administrator
  • Once open click the Install button.
  • Then click on Finish
  • Unchecky is now installed and will help you keep unwanted check boxes unchecked



    Crypto Warning!!!! - Complete Data Loss can occur!

    There are particularly nasty infections out there at the moment that encrypt your data and hold it for ransom. You may read more about this here
  • Download CryptoPrevent free for home use here following the instructions below.
  • Save the file to your desktop from the link above and then open the program by clicking Run when prompted from your browser or by going to the desktop where the file was saved and double-clicking.
  • Accept all the defaults during the install. The last screen of the install has a checkmark in "Launch CryptoPrevent". This is good and will launch the program once you click Finish.
  • You will get a prompt asking if you purchased a Product Key for Automatic Updates. You can answer No.
  • You will then be prompted to learn more about automatic updates or if you want to purchase a key. This is up to you but you don't have to.
  • You will be prompted to click OK to continue and select your protection level. Go ahead and click OK.
  • Click the Apply button to set Default protection.
  • You may get a message stating that Windows Sidebar and Desktop Gadgets are a major security vulnerability and asking you if you want to disable them. If you don't use these features, answer Yes.
    That's it. The protection is in place.

    Note: The free version doesn't provide automatic updates. Periodically, you should open up the program (there is a shortcut on your desktop now) and select the Updates! menu....and select Check for Updates to see if there are any as this infection has serious consequences.
    UpdatesV7.4.11.JPG


    General Advice
  • Watch what you open in your emails. If you get an email from an unknown source with any attached files, do not open it.
  • Install and keep only one anti-virus on your machine. Update it and scan your machine with it at least once a week.
  • Be careful of the websites you visit.
  • When browsing the internet, look closely at the links you click on. Some aren't always what they seem.
  • Avoid Peer to Peer file sharing utilities, these are a minefield of malware infections.
  • Pay attention when installing a program to your computer, particularly to any check boxes that may appear during installation, it is common for unwanted software to be installed in this way.

    To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this little guide Best security practices.

    Go here for some good advice about how to prevent infection.

    Happy safe surfing!! :)

    That's it. It's been a pleasure working with you. :)

  • What issues if any you are having with your computer?

Thank you so much for all your detailed and careful instruction! I've been using this site for nearly a decade and the quality has only skyrocketed! One thing though...

Chrome is blocking the download of CryptoPrevent and when I searched for an alternate download link, it showed a very low (1 star) rating on Softonic... I trust you, but now I'm a little wary...

Hi Interpolarity

Did you try installing Cryptoprevent using Chrome. What happens if you try using Internet Explorer?

Try Internet Explorer and use the link I provided in post #13.

Thanks
