When confronted with these incidents I generally am able to read about them online and then I just take care of the problem.
That has always worked for me. But this channel1reports malware was not discussed in any detail anywhere I could find in google, even here.
I have seen a few of these that were not widely written about. Thankfully that is pretty rare.
So I thought I would post what I did and what I found. I did some manual registry edits and deleted some files and directories, got it down to a dull roar.
I then ran malwarebytes and eventually combofix on it.
I want to be clear, I don't need any help, support, anything like that. I just want to share information.
How should I do that? I have some logs.
I don't see an appropriate category for this kind of post.
Only for posts asking for help. Maybe we need a forum for stuff being shared, for the good of society. Heh.
