I have the latest Sandboxie and Avira. This morning I was some where on the web where I shouldn't have been. I have SB set to empty the sandbox when I close the browser. When I closed FF I noticed that my taskbar icon for Avira had moved. So I ran Superantispyware and it found Pup Funmoods toolbar. Then I ran Malwarebytes and it found a whole bunch of trash. It seems that I still have problems. I noticed on the DDS scan it still shows Funmoods. Would it be ok to post the DDS and GMER scans?

Funmoods toolbar is a browser extension/add-on and not a virus. It was detected by SuperAntispyware as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), This is a very broad threat category which can encompass any number of different programs to include those which are benign as well as malicious. They may also be defined somewhat differently by various security vendors.Some programs falling into the PUP category have legitimate uses in contexts where an authorized user or administrator has knowingly installed it.


Many toolbars, Add-ons, screensavers, and weather monitoring programs come bundled with other software and can be the source of various issues and problems to include Adware. They usually can be removed via Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in Vista/Windows 7, so always check there first.

If nothing is listed in Add/Remove or Programs and Features, check Internet Explorer's Manage Add-ons where they can be disabled:
If using Firefox or Google Chrome, please refer to:Repeat the above steps for any other toolbars/extensions you do not want or don't recognize.


To reset the browser home page if it was changed, please refer to:
To reset or restore all browser settings in Internet Explorer, please refer to resetting Internet Explorer settings or use Posted Image
to automatically reset registry keys and the browser back to the way it was when initially installed.

Note: If you check the Delete personal settings checkbox in Advanced settings, it will reset the home page(s), search providers and Accelerators to their default values. It will also delete temporary Internet files, history, cookies, web form information (passwords) and InPrivate Filtering data.
-- Windows 7 users can also use the Internet Explorer Troubleshooter to achieve this automatically.

If using FireFox, please refer to:If using Chrome, please refer to:

I have moved (split away) your DDS/GMER log(s) to the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum as they are not permitted in this forum.

Please go here, click on the Watch Topic button in the upper right corner and select Immediate Notification to subscribe to that topic so you are notified when a helper replies.

Now that your log is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Response Team member...nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log(s) you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process or make things worst which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Response Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response because the Malware Response Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Response Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Response Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, please follow Step One and CLICK the link so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
