I have a Dell laptop running Vista sp2.
 
I have a program named ''Better Brain'' in programs and features. I don't remember seeing it before and wonder if I should uninstall it.
 
See, I was trying to update my free CCleaner, which I've done easy enough in the past. I don't know what happened, must have clicked the wrong thing, but suddenly my Avast pops up that it has quarantined something. At the same time something else has downloaded. I go straight to programs and features and uninstall 2 things that began with V. Plus I see PC Optimizer is newly there, so I uninstall it.
 
I ran malware and virus checks--everthing good. But I can't find anything about better brain.
 
Any input appreciated.

The way to update CCleaner is through CCleaner's GUI....sounds like you used another website that hosted CCleaner software

and....of course...installed a bunch of crapware.

 

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here

Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).

  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
  • Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
  • Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
  • If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the Apply Actions button.
  • While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can also be viewed by clicking the History tab and then selecting Application Logs.

POST THE LOG FOR REVIEW.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars.

You may see Google Tool Bar being offered.

  • download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
  • After reviewing the log, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.

Download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.

  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.

  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
  • Scan potentially unwanted applications
  • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
  • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
  • NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.

The Eset scan can take more than an hour to complete but is necessary.

 

Along with posting the results of the Eset scan, post the Windows Startup list using CCleaner.

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. At the bottom right of that page you will see a button

when clicked will allow you to copy and paste the list of Windows Startups in your next post. Please do that.

At the top of that page you will see a button for Tasks. Copy and paste that list in your next reply

 

Reset Google Chrome

 

Google Chrome gives you the option to reset your browser settings in one easy click. In some cases, programs that you install can change your Chrome settings without your knowledge. You may see additional extensions and toolbars or a different search engine. Resetting your browser settings will reset the unwanted changes caused by installing other programs. However, your saved bookmarks and passwords will not be cleared or changed.

Reset your browser settings

  1. In the top-right corner of the browser window, click the Chrome menu
  2. Select Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.
  4. Under the section "Reset settings,” click Reset settings.
  5. In the dialog that appears, click Reset.

Computer should be about two pounds lighter and a little faster....any other problem?

 

You can go to Downloads and remove all those old .exe/ installer files that Eset removed the adware from....just to neaten up.

buddy215,
 
I thank you very much for your time and help. Your directions were excellent. I thought Malwarebytes alone would have taken care of the crap, but I see I was wrong.
 
I noticed that my Avast is enabled in IE but not Chrome. I don't even use IE anymore, should I enable the Avast extension in Chrome? I know how.
 
 
Thanks!
 
marber

No need...and if it is the free version of Avast it is likely adware.

 

You're welcome...enjoyed working with you...happy surfin' !
