I run Windows 10 on a Dell XPS laptop. I run McAfee and Malwarebytes Pro. But I think something has made it past all that.. My computer intermittently slows down, my internet disconnects frequently and windows are popping up on their own in my Chrome browser. I came back this evening to a window I did not open. Some of them are trying to get me to download programs. Additionally, Malwarebytes has warned of a malicious site trying to open, and I hadn't tried to open a site. I get warnings as well that programs that are dowloading on their own are probably malicious... like a fake Flash program d/l this evening.  I've run Malwarebytes, but it comes up clean. I don't think my computer is clean though. 

 

Thanks.

Do you have an adblocker installed in your browsers such as Adblock Plus?

 

How to disable third-party cookies in all major web browsers

After blocking those cookies from installing, run a scan using CCleaner to remove the ones presently installed.

 

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 onto your desktop.

  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan button.
  • When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
  • 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

Great Lawrence Krauss quote. Thanks for that. 

 

I disabled third party cookies, then ran CCleaner first, then AdwareCleaner, then Junkware Removal Tool.

Are you still having a problem...have things improved on the comp?

 

  • 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"
  • 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.

After Eset finishes....do this:

 

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.

So far my computer is less mysterious and is running smoother than before I started taking these steps. Eset found no threats and created no log. Following are the three lists from CCleaner:

Done and done. And I did install Adblock Plus when you initially suggested it. Sorry. I forgot to tell you. And it's working well. There were two Chrome extensions offered called Adblock Plus, and somehow I managed to pick the one you linked to in your last post. I rejoice daily now that I'm not bombarded by targeted advertising. 

 

Two question. I get all your suggestions for programs to delete. I'm just curious as to why you suggested deleting McAfee WebAdvisor. Is that the one that's bundled with Adobe products? And why did you suggest I delete LastPass unless I'm using it. I am using it, but is there something I should know about it?

 

Thank you so much for your help.

Web Advisor (once named Site Advisor) isn't well supported and often misleading. Both Firefox and Chrome do a much better job of helping you avoid known bad websites.

 

I see Last Pass in many lists of startups even though it isn't being used. Since you use it....keep it enabled in Windows Startups.

 

You're welcome....happy surfin'

 

Regarding Adblock Plus....click on ABP icon and choose Filter Preferences. UNcheck the box next to Allow Some Non-intrusive advertising.

I looked at the list at the Allow Some Non-Inustrusive advertising. Is that supposed to be the NON-intrusive??? Because I saw some very intrusive adertisers listed including doubleclick. I unchecked it after looking. 

 

West Tennessee? Like Memphis West? I have family (including double and triple cousins... really twisted family tree) in the Crossville area.

Yep...that's a lot of ad servers. Some sites develop their own ads. If you find those and they are blocking the content you need you

can block those using ABP, too. But those are usually out of the way. I only do that if they are annoying like flashing.

 

During certain weather conditions....which happens many times throughout the year....I can see lightning flashes

in Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Kentucky and of course Tenn.
