Just like another user on here, I seem to have contracted a Vosteran problem from a website my computer's search bar sent me to.

 

Here's what I know:

 

- The program I intended to download was WinRAR.

- I seem to have gotten something called RaMmiChaeL, a slew of programs from Tong child research, something called browsefox, and apidynamiccombo. 

- The source website was downloadpcapp.com

- My browser became infected with Vosteran 

 

I have uninstalled the infected browser, but I know my problem is still ongoing. I ran Malwarebytes and CCleaner, which found some of the problems, but both Malwarebytes and Macafee are still finding bad files. Macafee came with the computer, I installed Malwarebytes after the infection began. 

 

So, any takers? This computer is a Lenovo C2 All-in-one.

 

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Your help on this issue is greatly appreciated.

This may take long.
You may need to turn McAfee off.


ESET.
  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the esetonlinebtn.png button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu.png icon on your desktop.
  • 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.
