You guys are awesome!

 

Everytime I copy/paste a URL to link to a page, the link is converted to a "splashurl"... example of conversion: 

 

I copy a thread-page address from a forum (CTRL-C) "www.acousticguitarforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=173946" from the command line and paste it (CRL-V) into a new thread as a link to the listed thread... the url converts to this:    http://lnk.splashurl.com/1NvD

 

How do I get rid of this pesky conversion thing?

Well, this is the first I have heard of this program, but evidently you have an add-on toolbar in your browser. More info:

http://splashurl.com/


Help Requests: If there is no reply after 3 days I remove the thread from my answer list. For further help PM me.

OK, this is wierd, I just wrote a response to your guys... then I went to "Edit" for a misspelled word and it erased my post with the "NO_SUCH_TOPIC" inserted above.

 

Here is what I just wrote:

 

jburd - No, "snap.do" is not on the task bar... I did a HD search for "snap.do", nothing came up.

 

ranchhand - I went to both "splashurl.com" and "splashurl.net" to see if I could get disabling instructions... the listed contact e-mails are disabled, so no way to contact them... how do we lasoo  these doggies?

Try running  https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/ to get rid of this ad on. If that doesn't do it I'd move this issue to Am I Infected forum...

Use the programs below to find and remove adware and malware.

 

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  • Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.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 MBAM 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....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download


  • 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. (Eset can take more than an hour to run so plan accordingly)

  • 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.

jburd:  I loaded and ran the "adwcleaner" you recommended. It removed a toolbar called "vtoolupdater", I don't know if this as the source of the "splashurl" or not... here is the adwcleaner report:

That's quiet a collection of crapware. It would be a really good idea for you to run the other scans. No one program ever finds all adware and malware.

I'm sure there is more to be found and removed.

Thanks Buddy. After reading your comment, I went up and scanned thru the "adwcleaner" report... I can't say I understand it, but I do see that LOTS of things were removed... including "snap.do". I did update CCleaner and upgraded to the Pro version, not sure if it really makes a difference, but it ran FAST. I searched all thru CCleaner, and I cannot find the report for the Analyze+Clean I just ran... any idea how to find the scan report in CCleaner Pro?

 

I use a registered version of AVG 2014, so I don't want to load ESET... too much conflict potential... I just ran a full scan in AVG, here is the only abbreviated report I could find, one thread from VLC Media Player (which I use almost daily):

 

Whole Computer Scan           Medium severity;"1";"1";"0"           Scanned folders:;"Scan Whole Computer"       Started:;"1/17/2015, 9:10:17 AM"         Finished:;"1/17/2015, 9:25:31 AM"         Scanned items:;"153230"           Launched by:;"Bill Doyle"                           Name;"Description";"Status";"Status";"Priority"       C:\Users\Bill Doyle\Downloads\vlcmediaplayer-setup.exe;"Found MalSign.Generic.B09";"Secured";"Healed";"Medium"

 

AVG Forum recommends loading and running "Malwarebytes" in addition to AVG full scan... any thoughts on this?

MBAM is what I asked you to use along with others.

No need to post what CCleaner removed. Just open it and on the bottom right click on Run Cleaner.

AVG installed adware on your computer....that is what secure search is...adware using ASK. AdwCleaner removed it.

 

It's easy to disable AVG but it is likely you can run the Eset scanner without doing that. Up to you, of course.

You should run the Junkware Removal Tool, too. Up to you, of course.
