Something is making me 'like' and share a Facebook page

Post by shockz13 on 30th August 2014, 7:08 pm

This is the second time this has happened. About a month ago a friend told me I 'liked' a page called which I never did. I checked out the website and it was obviously a phishing attempt as it wanted you to download a Java signup form. I unliked the page and thought nothing more. Today my other friend texts me asking why I told him to like a page called "" I also see on Facebook that a few of my friends accepted my suggestion to like it.
I checked my authorized logins and they are all from my city although I unauthorized them all anyway. I am just wondering how this could be happening as it is sort of embarrassing to have my friends bugged by this.

Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
6. 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.
7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.
You need to defrag your hard drive soon. If you need help with this, please let me know. SSD means Solid state drive.
Malwarebytes' Anti-Rootkit

  • Be sure to print out and follow the instructions provided on that same page for performing a scan.
  • Caution: This is a beta version so also read the disclaimer and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] all your data before using.
  • When the scan completes, click on the Cleanup button to remove any threats found and reboot the computer if prompted to do so.
  • Perform another scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit to verify that no threats remain. If they do, then click Cleanup once more and repeat the process.
  • If there are problems with Internet access, Windows Update, Windows Firewall or other system issues, run the fixdamage tool located in the folder Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit was run from and reboot your computer.
  • Two files (mbar-log-YYYY-MM-DD, system-log.txt) will be created and saved within that same folder.
  • Copy and paste the contents of these two log files in your next reply.

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to your desktop.

Warning! Once the scan is complete JRT will shut down your browser with NO warning.

•Temporarily disable your Antivirus and any Antispyware real time protection before performing a scan. Click [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] link to see a list of security programs that should be disabled and how to disable them.
