Hi,

I need to download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Download to remove winreanimator, but when it starts to download I get a Security Alert prompt "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded."

I haven't had a problem up to now. I have disabled my McAfee firewall and see that the Windows firewall is down, but still unable to download. Performed chkdsk as mentioned in another topic that prompted similar message, but no change.

"Computing" not my strength. Please let me know what I need to do. Thanks.

Sometimes the best way to fight malware is stay off the internet, even disconnect physically.

Then download some programs and updates to another computer and transfer to a usb drive.

When I got hit hard last summer that's exactly what I did.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner.
  • Hold down your "Shift" key and click on this link: Kaspersky WebScanner, to open the Kaspersky WebScanner in a new window.
  • Click on "Kaspersky Online Scanner".
    • You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
    • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on "NEXT".
  • Now click on "Scan Settings".
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
      Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
      Scan Archives
      Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK.
  • Under select a target to scan, select "My Computer".
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
  • Upon completion, click on the "Save as Text" button.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

Thank you both for your good advice.

I did go on a different computer today and downloaded the Malwarebytes' software on a USB as suggested and ran it on the infected one.

I ran a Hijack this log and the file is gone.

make sure you run another scan with malwarebytes after updating

it might seem like a waste of time, but believe me, it's not
