Malware Doctor

Post by LouEllenTrevino on Mon Aug 23, 2010 8:02 pm

Hi, I ended up with "Malware Doctor" on my computer.I was able to get it removed, but my computer is still a mess. Pages just pop up for no reason. And when I try and get to a page, I get redirected to some page not of my choosing!
As suggested here I downloaded Malwarebytes. It found 19 issues and so far I haven't had any pages popping up but, I as of today can no longer open emails and having restored my to an earlier date, now am unable to even get that screen to come up on my PC anymore.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

It was suggested that I send a hijacker file for you folks to read...... but I have ZERO understanding of that, so I would need instructions that a total computer dummy could understand!!!! :-)

UPDATE:

Now it seems as though I can't download any pages at all... at least not complete pages. Tried to get into Facebook, only the header loaded. This seems to be the only page I can get into, crazy huh? HELP!!!!! PLEASE!!!!

Hi LouEllen,

Welcome to GeekPolice Forums! I'm Crush but, you can call me Chris too Smile and I will be helping you with your Malware issues.

A few things to keep in mind as we progress:

1. We are all volunteer staff here so we log in and assess threads when real life, work, family, and other obligations permit. Additionally, we are located all over the world. There may be a bit of a time delay due to this.

2. Malware Removal threads are very time intensive. Each entry must be researched until it can be said with 100% certainty whether or not it can stay or needs to be removed. Sometimes additional work is needed to weed out suspect entries

3. This may turn into a long ordeal but, rest assured we will stay with you until you are completely disinfected.

4. Only Tech Officers, Global Moderators, Administrators, and Malware Advisors are allowed to give advice on removing malware from your computer. Do not run any tools unless specifically asked to by a member of one of these usergroups

5. If you are not the original poster of this thread DO NOT run any fixes given to the poster in this thread. They are all custom tailored specifically to this user. It could prove to be disastrous.

6. Please keep responding until I give you the "All Clear". Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

7. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.

8. If you have any questions or issues please stop and ask! We are all here to help.


IMPORTANT: Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.


If you follow these instructions, everything should go smoothly Smile.
