I think I have a virus or malware? Help!

Post by becccablack on Mon 19 Jan 2015, 2:16 pm

Hello and thank you,
I am not good with computers so I am not sure if my computer is suffering from Malware or some virus. I went to a site online and it already started this download of a program and I couldn't stop it. I shut off my computer and when I reopened it I saw a strange icon that looked like my Google chrome icon and it was called cross browser. I tried to uninstall it but it said it couldn't be uninstalled until it was closed but nothing was open on my computer. Then I saw icon short cuts to YouTube, search, Facebook and Wikipedia , Amazon and Cross browser on my desktop that were not there before. I am not sure what I should do? I tried downloading adwcleaner but avast says it blocks it and it says the downloading failed.
I have a Toshiba laptop, windows 7 operating system.

please help me!

-thank you for your time

Hello and welcome to GeekPolice.Net 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.
*************************************************************************
Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.

Before starting AdwCleaner, close all open programs and internet browsers, then double-click on the AdwCleaner icon.



If Windows prompts you as to whether or not you wish to run AdwCleaner, please allow it to run.
When the AdwCleaner program will open, click on the Scan button as shown below.



AdwCleaner will now start to search for malicious files that may be installed on your computer.
To remove the files that were detected in the previous step, please click on the Clean button.



AdwCleaner will now prompt you to save any open files or data as the program will need to reboot the computer. Please do so and then click on the OK button. AdwCleaner will now delete all detected adware from your computer. When it is done it will display an alert that explains what PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and Adware are. Please read through this information and then press the OK button. You will now be presented with an alert that states AdwCleaner needs to reboot your computer.
Please click on the OK button to allow AdwCleaner reboot your computer.A log will be produced. Please copy and paste this log in your next reply.
*********************************************
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from here.
Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

  • It should update automatically if the computer is connected to the internet.
  • Click on Threat Scan and click on Scan Now.

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

Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.

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

•Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, right-click JRT and select Run as Administrator

•The tool will open and start scanning your system.

•Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.

•On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.

•Copy and Paste the JRT.txt log into your next message.

Hello Dave and thank you so much,
I would like to post the logs but it says because I am a new member I can't copy and paste them for 7 days.
Also the AdWcleaner got rid of the youtube and facebook icons shortcuts that on my desktop when all this started but the icons for wikipedia, amazon and this short cut to google cross installation still remain on my desktop.

Remove any links in the logs and you should be able to post them. Just delete those shortcuts and see if they come back.

Hello and thank you. I deleted the links but I guess I must of missed some because I still could not post so I attached all the logs as a pdf file if that is okay?

I saw the cross browser that appeared on my desk top in my programs so I went to uninstall it and it said error that it was already uninstalled so I deleted from the list and I deleted all the short-cuts off my desk top, so far nothing new.

I also been updating some of my programs.

-thank you so much again

Hello Dave, and thank you again. I got rid of the links like you said and was able to post. I had them on one document as a the pdf I tried to submit the other day so sorry if some are a little out of order.

I have not seen any icons comeback yet or anything new.

You can removed the files in quarantine in MBAM. How's your computer working now? Any other issues or questions?

Okay I removed them. It seems to be okay so far. It is moving a little quicker than before it is about 4 years old so its performance has slowed down since I bought it. But nothing strange with icons or anything like that.

I was wondering how I can avoid getting malware in the future and keep my PC going good at its age.

-thank you Dave

Update your Adobe Reader. get.adobe.com/reader.

Be sure to uncheck the Free McAfee Security Scan so it isn't installed.

*******************************************
Update Your Java (JRE)

Old versions of Java have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.


First Verify your Java Version

If there are any other version(s) installed then update now.

Get the new version (if needed)

If your version is out of date install the newest version of the Sun Java Runtime Environment.

Note: UNCHECK any pre-checked toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update. The pre-checked toolbars/software are not part of the Java update.

Be sure to close ALL open web browsers before starting the installation.

Remove any old versions

1. Download JavaRa and unzip the file to your Desktop.
2. Open JavaRA.exe and choose Remove Older Versions
3. Once complete exit JavaRA.

Additional Note: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. To disable the JQS service if you don't want to use it, go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and reboot your computer.
*******************************************
Click Start> Computer> right click the C Drive and choose Properties> enter
Click Disk Cleanup from there.



Click OK on the Disk Cleanup Screen.
Click Yes on the Confirmation screen.



This runs the Disk Cleanup utility along with other selections if you have chosen any. (if you had a lot System Restore points, you will see a significant change in the free space in C drive)
*********************************************
This step will remove all cleaning tools we used, it'll reset restore points (so you won't get reinfected by accidentally using some older restore point) and it'll make some other minor adjustments...
This is a very crucial step so make sure you don't skip it.
Download DelFix by Xplode to your desktop. Delfix will delete all the used tools and logfiles.

Double-click Delfix.exe to start the tool.
Make sure the following items are checked:

  • Activate UAC (optional; some users prefer to keep it off)
  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Create Registry backup
  • Purge System Restore Points
  • Re-set system settings

Now click "Run" and wait patiently.
Once finished a logfile will be created. You don't have to attach it to your next reply.
*****************************************
I suggest using WOT - Web of Trust. WOT is a free Internet security addon for your browser. It will keep you safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and unreliable shopping sites. WOT warns you before you interact with a risky website. It's easy and it's free.

Check out Keeping Yourself Safe On The Web for tips and free tools to help keep you safe in the future.
