Need help finding/removing bad virus

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

OK. This virus is on crack or something. I've never had such a bad virus. There are three of them that were installed without my notification. I came back to my computer today to find windows spamming "Windows Defender has found some malware. Removing it". I was interested to see this. I just ignored it. I opened my browser, and a massive stream of pop ups appeard on my screen and my default browser had been changed. I was able to remove two of them, but one still remains, continuing to say there are updates that need to be installed for every application I launch. It is also tracking my location by displaying ads saying that I've won something. Random installers can also be seen opening without me doing anything. THere is also this random browser that has opened without me doing anything. I crashed it twice in task manager, but I cannot crash it anymore for some reason. Windows Defender says there's malware, but when I open the application, it says there's nothing wrong with the pc. A video below can be seen to illustrate what's happening. I cannot uninstall the third virus that's crating the ads and updates and crap since it's in a different language. Please someone save me from this hell hole... I've signed out of everything just in case I'm being tracked. Once I get rid of this, I will be changing all passwords.

Best practise imo is to wipe the drive and reinstall windows. Use malwere bytes first though boot into safe mode first 

There's a lot of things that I need on this drive. Is there another alternative? Reinstalling windows?

Have you backed up your data? I guess you could go through most of your important files and scan them 1 by 1

Boot into safe mode first of all and copy important files to another drive

I'll use this as a last resort. I'm scanning with windows defender and malwarebytes as we speak. If no result, I'll slowly backup and wipe.

Use Adwcleaner as well

I suggest, if you can burn it from another PC, Kaspersky's rescue disk.

 

You can download the ISO for free, burn it to a cd, boot into it, update the definitions, and run a full scan.

 

I cannot tell you how many times I have used this to bring back infected computers.

AVG makes one too, but I trust Kasperskylab

I've managed to remove the virus by using Malwarebytes, removing it in reg edit, then temp, then booting safe mode and removing it from program files. Thanks for all the help :3

Just to be safe copy all data to another drive and do a clean install. That will remove any traces.
