I'm 13 years old, and I'm part of a special project in Israel called "Katom". The point is we learn with mobile computers.
After I got my laptop, my computers teacher told our class he'll check what kind of sites we surf, if we install games (installing games on the laptop is
prohibited) etc. Last week, I began to feel my computer is working too slow. And when a new computer is working slow, there must be a malware on it.
The first step I did was to install Spybot Search&Destroy. After an update, It began to scan. At the end, he found "Right Media". I fixed it, and closed the
window. Aftet I saw it comes back after every check, I downloaded Ad-Aware. Update, Scan, and 3 malware detections. I deleted them all.
Then I restarted, and ran Spybot again. Nothing was found! Well, it wasn't over yet. Today I began a regular check, and Spybot again found Right Media.
Meanwhile, Ad-Aware found "Possible Browser Hijack attempt". I clicked on the little "Plus" icon to get more information. Under the "Category" tab, it said-
URL=http://www.gamehouse.com. I really visited this site yesterday! My questions are:
- Is this URL really means I got the malware from gamehouse?
- Is it my Computers teacher who plants Right Media, and any other malware I found before?
- How can I make sure Right Media won't show-up anymore?
Thanks for anyone who'll help me :)
