Hello, nice to meet you!
I recently noticed some adverts on facebook and youtube and found out it was a malware, I tried to run a scan with malwarebytes in safemode but no viruses were found, also my avast! antivirus doesn't recognize any virus in my system nor I downloaded anything which might contain malwares.

No matter what I tried, I couldn't find a way to get rid of it by myself, so I decided to seek for help in this forum! Thanks in advance for taking time to read this thread and for your help.

Hello DarkVanilla,

Welcome to the forum! :)

My name is pgmigg and I'll be helping you with any malware problems.

Currently I am working under the guidance of the MRU teachers and everything I post to you, must first be approved by them.
This additional review process can add some extra time to my responses, but I will post back with instructions for you as soon as possible.

Before we begin, please read and follow these important guidelines, so things will proceed smoothly.
  1. The instructions being given are for YOUR computer and system only!
    Using these instructions on a different computer can cause damage to that computer and possibly render it inoperable!
  2. You must have Administrator rights, permissions for this computer.
  3. DO NOT run any other fix or removal tools unless instructed to do so!
  4. DO NOT install any other software (or hardware) during the cleaning process. This adds more items to be researched.
  5. Only post your problem at (1) one help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  6. Print each set of instructions if possible - your Internet connection will not be available during some fix processes.
  7. Only reply to this thread, do not start another one. Please, continue responding, until I give you the "All Clean!" :cheers:
    Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

I am currently reviewing your log and will return, as soon as possible, with additional instructions. In the meantime...
Please take time to read the Malware Removal Forum Guidelines and Rules where the conditions for receiving help at this forum are explained.

Please read all instructions carefully before executing and perform the steps, in the order given.
lf, you have any questions or problems, executing these instructions, <<STOP>> do not proceed, post back with the question or problem.

Hello DarkVanilla,

Thank you for your patience... :)

The HJT log you posted was run under outdated version of HJT - it means that its findings cannot be relied upon. So to get a good look at your computer I first need you to run some more scans for me.

Step 1.
OTL - Download
Please download OTL.exe by Old Timer and save it to your Desktop.

OTL Scan
Important! Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop.
  1. Double click on OTL.exe to run it.
  2. Under Output, ensure that Standard Output is selected.
  3. Click the Scan All Users checkbox.
    Leave the remaining selections to the default settings.
  4. Click on Run Scan at the top left hand corner.
  5. When done, two Notepad files will open.
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened, maximized
    • Extras.txt <-- Will be minimized on task bar.
  6. Please post the contents of both OTL.txt and Extras.txt files in your next reply.

Step 2.
Run CKScanner
  1. Please download CKScanner from Here
  2. Important: - Save it to your Desktop.
  3. Double-click CKScanner.exe and click Search For Files.
  4. After a very short time, when the cursor hourglass disappears, click Save List To File.
  5. A message box will verify the file saved.
  6. Double-click the CKFiles.txt icon on your desktop and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.

Please include in your next reply:
  1. Do you have any problems executing the instructions?
  2. Contents of OTL.txt log file
  3. Contents of Extras.txt log file
  4. Contents of CKFiles.txt log file
  5. Do you see any changes in computer behavior?

Hello DarkVanilla,
...I found out the problem.

I am not sure as you did, at least because updating request for FF 8.0 was coming later than you placed your original post.
Anyway, the absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear and if you would like to continue and have the computer thoroughly checked, please run the scans you previously requested and answer for one more question.

Please tell me, is this computer used for business purposes or connected to business or educational network?
I need to know it - so I can provide the proper instructions.

If you choose NOT to continue cleaning process, please indicate that in your next reply and this topic will be closed.

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
