Hi,

 

I am running Windows 8.1 and I am infected with DNS Unlocker.

 

I have run MalwareBytes, ADWCleaner, Junk File Remover Tool, and HitmanPro, but with no success. 

 

I appreciate any help you can offer.

 

Thank you.

What is your default browser? It will likely be necessary to completely uninstall it including your profile. You can backup your bookmarks before doing that.

 

Use Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware in Advanced Mode to completely remove Firefox and/ or Google Chrome.

 

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.

Post the three lists mentioned below using CCleaner:

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for each browser and Scheduled Tasks.

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 and Scheduled Tasks into your next

post. Please do that.

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Uninstall. On that page you will see a list of programs installed on your computer and at the bottom right of that page you

will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste that list in your next post. Please do that.

Bleeping Computer has posted removal instructions for DNS Unlocker. You will likely need to reset ALL browsers and you will need to reset your DNS servers as 

the malware has changed those to ones it controls.
