Question Malware

Need help with getting rid of It feels like SpyHunter is at it again because EVERY link that claims to get rid of this ends up saying that the solution is SpyHunter. I downloaded and ran SpyHunter and it did not find it much less remove it. If anyone comes across a solution, I would love to know how to get rid of this. I ran SuperAntiSpyware Pro, Malware Bytes, Commodo, Norton and BitDefender.

It's A Browser Hijacker...

And as such, you need to start by resetting your browsers.. Unfortunately, you didn't tell us which browsers you use or the operating system you're using, or anything else about your computer..... but a simple Google search for "reset Firefox" or "reset Internet Explorer", etc. will give you that procedure. As an example, if you're using Internet Explorer, open the Control Panel, then the "Internet Options" icon, then the "Advanced" tab. Once there, click on the "reset" button.

Once that's done, then clean out all the cookies from the various browsers you're using, then click on the link below and follow ALL of the procedures listed to the letter, in the order they're given.

“Expand” the post titled: "Please try this" at the link below:

And unfortunately, if this doesn't help, there are occasions when the only solution is to wipe the drive and reinstall everything back to factory conditions. That means all your important personal data will be gone so be sure to make a backup of all that important stuff.

Hope this helps.

Its a Browser Highjacker

Thanks Grif. I am running chrome on win 10. Just to be sure I follow your instructions completely, i wanted to double check the starting point. Should I start with your instruction on 10/17/2013? "Please Try This"......

Just FYI. I ran all of the items in the order Grif layed out but still could not kill the malware. I just reinstalled windows to finally be rid of it.

Glad You Got It Gone....

Unfortunately, reinstalling everything back to its original state is sometimes the easiest and best solution.

Hope this helps.
