Hello everyone,

 

When my system finishes to turn on, google chrome opens itself with all my tabs of my last session and a new one with sd-steam.info web, then it changes the link into zodiac-game.info.

 

I hope you can help me, Thanks a lot!

Hello

  •   Welcome to Bleeping Computer.
  •   My name is fireman4it and I will be helping you with your Malware problem.

    Please take note of some guidelines for this fix:
  •   Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools.
  •   If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing.
  •   Even if things appear to be better, it might not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean".
  •   In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Follow This Topic.I suggest you click it and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Follow This Topic. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.
  •   Finally, please reply using the Post button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply, unless they do not fit into the post.
  •   I will be analyzing your log. I will get back to you with instructions.

 

1.

Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop.

NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST/FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system

Run FRST/FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply.

 

 

 

2.

Please 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.
  • The tool will start to update its database...please wait until complete.
  • 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 Logfile button...a report (AdwCleaner[SX].txt) will open in Notepad (where the largest value of X represents the most recent report).
  • 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[CX].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of X represents the most recent report).
  • Copy and paste the contents of AdwCleaner[CX].txt in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved to C:\AdwCleaner.

 

 

How is the machine running after these two steps?

Can you turn it off and restart it a couple more times to make it is gone. Then let me know.

***

***



Delete the log files our tools created; they are located at your desktop or at the

You can browse to the location of the file or folder using either My Computer or Windows Explorer.

Here are some Preventive tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future

:step1: Browse more secure


:step2: Make sure you keep your Windows OS current.
  • Windows XP users can visit Windows update regularly to download and install any critical updates and service packs.
  • Windows Vista / 7 / 8 users can update via
    Start menu > All Programs > Windows Update > Check for Updates (in left hand task pane).

:step3: Avoid P2P
  • If you think you're using a "safe" P2P program, only the program is safe, not the data.
  • You will share files from unsafe sources, and these may be infected.
  • Some bad guys use P2P filesharing as an important chanel to spread their wares.

:step4: Use only one anti-virus software and keep it up-to-date.

:step5: Firewall
Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

:step6: Backup regularly
You never know when your PC will become unstable or become so infected that you can't recover it.

:step7: Use Strong passwords!

:step8: Email attachments
Do not open any unknown email attachments, which you received without asking for it!


Extra note:
Keep your Browser, Java, pdf Reader and Adobe Flash Up to Date.
And you could install Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit to run alongside your traditional anti-virus or anti-malware products.

Make sure your programs are up to date - because older versions may contain Security Leaks.
