I'm stuck right now at removing some spyware/hijackware stuff and I want to ask you if you could help me :S
Here some details:
I just have downloaded a Mod for Minecraft from Minecraftdl . com.
In this package were some other things in it, too. For example a software called Uniblue, or Removal and Optimizing software (Haven't made use of them). Then I just noticed, that my Computer was starting to be slower and slower. The Internet connection was really bad, while playing a minigame on a server, I lagged so hard that people thought I was hacking...
Now, after a little research I found out that uniblue stuff is hijackware/spyware.
I was looking for a Tutorial, how to remove it and found one, so I just followed them steps.
At first, I uninstalled all these software. Then I was running Adwcleaner and removed everything it found.
After that, it means I should use Junkware Removal Tool, and here is the issue.
I was able to download it, but then, while I was trying to run it, a window opened and closed instantly. I tried different Versions of this JRT, I turned off avast! and Firewall and I tried to run it in safe mode al with administrative rights, but still, JRT doesn't let me open it, I'm afraid that something could be broken in my system. I tried to google for this issue but have found nothing.
So I just skipped this step and then I used Malwarebytes and removed the rest it found.
It still feels like, I'm having some issues on my system. Of course it is old and slow, but it feels slower than usually or maybe I'm just imagining that. I'm not really sure if I'm safe from this hijackware stuff.
Is it still recommended to use JRT or similiar software? Do you know what could cause this open and closing window of JRT? I don't really know what to do now
PS: I was experiencing Screen freezing for no reason, I was able to move the mouse but everything else freezed. Then sometimes, it was like the explorer.exe has been turned off, so the symbols and taskbar disappered for some seconds. Now, after running Adwcleaner and Malwarebytes it's gone. But I'm still afraid of being infected.
I'm using Windows Vista 32bit
I'm really, really sorry for my bad english, but I hope you understand, what I want to focus on.
If you have questions or need more information, please just ask. I would be glad for every help I can get.
