Author Topic: I got adware  (Read 1075 times)

motherforgeter, I've been at it for 3 hours but basically I got adware from an installer and it started a process called mail.ru, since then I've been tracking it down and deleting any trace of it, including MBAM scans which found 2 threats but after that chrome still keeps opening up randomly with these websites.

I have revo uninstaller running right now and I'm uninstalling chrome, I've looked at the programs list and none of the programs on google were there, so it's gotta be registry stuff. I dunno what registry files to look for though or if that's even the root cause.

any help is appreciated

Well you had better go catch it!

it found 17 entries, I'm gonna run it again with rkill and then use https://emcosoftware.com/move-on-boot to stop it on boot

rkill found this


I know it's an adservice, but does anyone know how to stop it?

You tried using a system restore?

I'll go try that right now, if it doesn't solve it whatever but I think I already solved it

it didn't work and it's still there

the problem it was originally having where it was opening randomly with ads. I think I might have fixed it this time though

Download RegClean.
I'll check it out in due time, for now I'll just post my solution

what I did was open up task scheduler and low and behold, I found the task and it was set to run since the time of install indefinitely, I've deleted the task but it's too late to call it quits, if it actually worked I'll say so

did you try turning it off and on again

did you try turning it off and on again
plenty of times, I tried to boot into safe mode and back up my stuff
