Hi,

 

I have recently run Adwcleaner, which is downloaded from http://general-changelog-team.fr/fr/downloads/finish/20-outils-de-xplode/2-adwcleaner

 

After running the cleaner, I went to tools and click install for the Host Anti Adware PUP. I looked online afterwards, some say that the programs are trojan downloader. I wonder if I am infected.

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Hosts_Anti_Adwares_PUPs\HOSTS_Anti-Adware_main.exe

C:\Program Files (x86)\Hosts_Anti_Adwares_PUPs\HOSTS_Anti-Adware.exe

 

Windows action centre reports Kaspersky to be turned off after that is installed.

 

I can't run DDS because it says DDS can't run in compatibility mode.

 

Am I infected?

Hello, It does appear to be malware and should be removed. It is something we are looking at as it is relatively new.
As you have the other issues I would suspect malware.

You can read more about this here, from post 14

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/525687/malware-miscellany/


Bottom line is we need to repost and we should get a deeper look to see what malware is on here. Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Thanks for getting back so swiftly. I have actually opened a post on the Malware removal log forum. However, I haven't got any replies back for 6 days, and was a bit worried. I apologize for double-posting. I am not able to run DDS at all, so should I still start a new post?

Are you running Win 8 or 8.1?

You are next in line in the other post so better to wait.
