Hi there, I hope you can help me - essentially I got a lot of unwanted programs when I attempted to install Adobe FlashPlayer update.
Yesterday (08/08/2015) I was browsing a Sports News site using Firefox and was asked to update abode flash player to play one of the videos. The adobe update page appeared (may have clicked the update link) and all looked sort of genuine. I unchecked the box that bundles McAfee in with FlashPlayer and then hit next. On the next page I kinda realised things did not look right but at the same time my McAfee software went nuts with new connections (all of which I blocked I think) and loads of popups and installers appeared on the screen. I haven't got details here as was getting panicky at this point and just frantically closed things down and stopped any installs that I could.
Windows 7 Pro (64 Bit)
Service Pack 1
I have McAfee All Access - Internet Security running with a full subscription
the Firewall is on and normally set to "Stealth Mode" and ask me before allowing connections
Real time scanning is enabled
Anti-spam is enabled
What I did afterwards:
Afterwards I closed Firefox. Locked down my firewall, turned off wireless and un-plugged the network cable to try and prevent further intrusion.
I then did a system restore back to 05 Aug 2015 where I had installed some dev software (NodeJs)
I kicked off a McAfee full scan which I aborted after 20% as it hadn't found anything and I kinda figured whatever had got past it was past already.
I uninstalled Firefox, Adobe and anything I didn't recognise via Control Panel.
On another PC I downloaded:
I ran each of these programs in turn following instructions to run a scan. Some files were detected and remove including a MoviePlayer, WebBar, Conduit(?) and some sort of cinema player among others.
I've subsequently re-run these with either McAfee disabled or internet access restored so they could update. They don't seem to be picking up anything new.
I've reset Internet Explorer settings and this morning I downloaded
I ran each of these in turn. tdsskiller ran real fast and didn't find anything. ComboFix took a while and I'm not really sure what the result of that was.
Please can someone offer some help and advice to tell me what to do next and ensure I am virus free. I need this laptop for work and had was actually working overtime during the weekend to get some stuff finished, so this is desperately bad timing.
Any help would be greatly appreciate,
