Today I started getting multiple pop-ups in the background of my computer.  Some of these are in video form - others in websites.  They do not look like they are running unless you pull up the task manager - then they show up as Chrome sites running.  Problem is I don't have Chrome installed on my computer.  When you select them and end task - they simply pop up again.  When I look in the processes, a file called browser.exe *32 is running in 6-10 instances at any given moment.  When I click open file location, it says it is in AppData/LocalLow/CalculatorGravity/VolunteerBeerware.  It has a file in there that is just called browser that has a chrome logo next to it.  However, when I try and delete it, it simply says it is already running in Chrome and cannot be deleted.  However, every time I try and end the process of the browser.exe file, it pops more up.

 

Please help.  None of my malware/virus software can detect anything...and it is running my computer to the max.

Hello karamonty,

my name is Jo and I will help you with your computer problems.


Please follow these guidelines:
  • Logs can take a while to research, so please be patient.
  • Read and follow the instructions in the sequence they are posted.
  • print or copy & save instructions.
  • back up all your private data / important files on another (external) drive before using our tools.
  • Do not install / uninstall any applications, unless otherwise instructed.
  • Use only that tools you have been instructed to use.
  • Copy and Paste the log files inside your post, unless otherwise instructed.
  • Ask for clarification, if you have any questions.
  • Stay with this topic til you get the all clean post.
  • My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.

1. Download Security Check by screen317 from here or here.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
    Vista / Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

***


2. Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system, download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right-click FRST / FSRT64 then click "Run as administrator" (XP users: click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • When finished, it will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool was run from.
  • Please copy and paste the log in your next reply.
Note 2: The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory the tool was run from). Please also paste that, along with the FRST.txt into your next reply.
