Hello everybody,

Just today my computer was exposed to some adware (most likely bc of my stupidity). If I click on something which includes the the word "adware" such as AdwCleaner, something is killing the task (mozilla, chrome and even explorer.exe). I have scanned the computer with MBAM, HitmanPro and currently scanning with SpyBot. They have deleted and quarantined several malwares and adwares but something is still causing this. Pls help me get rid of this cr*p... possibly a keylogger?

I wasnt running them all at the same time. I used them one by one while making sure that the others are not running in the background.

If attempting to salvage your current install :

Install a hosts file to block some internet redirects and callouts :
A good one can be found here:

Reboot in safe mode. Stay in safe mode while cleaning

Run RKILL: Do NOT reboot after running rkill. Rkill unhooks some processes that can interfere with scans. Rebooting restarts those processes.

Run Sophos . NOT a full fledged suite, just a runtime scanner. Finds a few nasties that others don't seem to.

Run Hitman Pro:

Run ADWCleaner:

Run Malwarebytes:

Check your start programs.

Use Microsoft's Sysinternals Utility AutoRuns to see what is being autostarted. You can unhook startup entries as well within this program..

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autoruns

If you want to see what is running, Microsoft's Sysinternals Process Explorer may help you find odd entries as well:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/process-explorer

Go though your browser's addons, see what is attached to run, and delete there.

Finally, Goto Programs and Features (not apps and features), and can delete suspicious items from there (as long as processes stopped)

Start your computer OS in safe mode. Now install Malwarebyte and run it. Clean all viruses on scan. Restart computer in normal mode. Your problem is gone.
