iLivid and associated infections

Unread postby EnglishSettlement » October 14th, 2012, 2:39 am

My child tried to download something and ended up downloading iLivid and several other malware items as well at the same time. Needless to say, Norton and Microsoft's Security Essentials have been useless, not even detecting them. I've been reading posts here and elsewhere, and not only is it malicious but it changes frequently, which might explain why some of the names differ from previous posts. Over a number of hours now, I've tried several things to remove them. I succeeded in disabling and hopefully removing the browser hijack (Default Search?), but there seems to be a few lingering remnants, based on an OTL scan (e.g., MusicOasis, Tarma Installer, Yahoo! Companion) that were installed at the same time. I am concerned about what evil any remaining pieces are capable of perpetrating. [The only bright side so far is that this has been a useful teaching moment for my child.] Really need help and am very grateful!

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.

We need to know what's running on your computer so we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.

This topic will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:

  • Addition.txt
  • Details of your problems.

If for any reason you can't run FRST, please let us know in your post.
