This how I see this. If you did not install it. Some how someone did. Is this PC on a netwok? Are there other users.
If no one you know put it there then you wer accessed and need to reset the router to its default configuration. This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds). If you don?t know the router's default password, you can look it up HERE.Note:
After resetting your router, it is important to set a non-default password
, and if possible, username
, on the router. This will assist in eliminating the possibility of the router being hijacked again.
If there are other machines using the same router, they will need to be cleared MBAM before resetting the router. Otherwise, the malware will simply go back and change the router's DNS settings. You also need to reconfigure any security settings you had in place prior to the reset. Check out this site HERE
for video tutorials on how to properly configure your router's encryption and security settings. You may also need to consult with your Internet service provider to find out which DNS servers your network should be using.
