Malware and how to remove it?

TreesMadeOfTanks
 Share

2 days ago i started experiencing weird stuff on my browser, nowhere else on the desktop or on applications do i have problems, but only on the browser. (Opera) 

At random times, i would estimate every 15 minuets or so i get redirected to spam sites.

Also sometime i will search something via Google and it will open a new tab, searching the same thing in Yahoo.

I've never had anything like this happen and don't really know where to start on removing it, help?

Do you by any chance have anything called PriceBlink installed? I was also getting spam because of it, and it only stopped when I removed it (this was on Chrome, though).

You should try running Malwarebytes Antispyware. And you can also use the Boot Scan that Avast free offers. Also, ad-blockers are your friend, I personally use uBlock Origin (and disable it on pages you deem safe and/or want to support).

Planning on trying StarCitizen (Highly recommended)? STAR-NR5P-CJFR is my referal link

This looks like a classic case of adware, for me it was as simple as uninstalling an unknown program from the control panel and then deleting the chrome extension causing this

Ok first go to google then go to the top right corner click the three dots or lines then go to settings scroll down then you see search engine then you click on manage search engine and then set Google as default search engine, then if you want to remove the popup, type in the search bar Norton Security here I will give it to you now    https://us.norton.com/downloads?inid=nortoncom_nav_downloads_homepage:homepage download and then set up an account then do a full system scan .

Do you have any addons installed?

 

If you do, then remove or disable them one at a time since it is likely that one has been updated with redirect adware.

oh and Combofix is cool too

combofix is amazing, i dont suggest it for a novice user though, if used incorrectly it will fuck up your computer

open taskman

edit views so you can see child processes

now run browser and see what children it spawns

then you can set taskshed to autokill subprocess on launch

Reboot your computer, run windows updates, reboot again, re-run malwarebytes and windows defender.

Windows defender is shit.

 

Malwarebytes should eliminate threats. You can also try to use a free anti virus like AVIRA if you don't use any anti virus. Like I said, windows defender is shit.

 

Try uninstall browser and re-install. Also try using chrome instead of opera if you don't mind.

 

Last thing : Virus and malware are often hard to erase completely even with anti virus or anti malware prorgams. They often leave traces.

 

Best thing is to format reinstall
