A few days ago I performed the following:
- Installed Spanish KB4012598 as protection for Wannacrypto.
- Installed No-Script add-on for Firefox and at some point while browsing No-Script registered and asked me to forward information on a hijack attempt it had blocked.
My computer has become very slow; Firefox became near to impossible to open; AVAST GUI wasn't loading properly and it constanttly shut off 1 of "x" number of protections.
Followed instructions that I picked up along the way on a Bleepingcomputer.com Forum, a while back, which suggested executing the following applications:
MiniToolBox; TDSSKiller; AdwCleaner; Junkware Removal Tool; ESET Online Scanner.
I couldn't run ESET because I have Avast installed and Avast wasn't working properly, so I "repaired" Avast, but it showed a conflict with Microsoft Security Essentials, which I can't seem to find, not even using REVO Uninstaller. Net, net, the AVAST GUI continues to fail
I just ran the Avast Root Kill aswMBR and sure enough, it shutdown and I renamed the file as instructed: "When you run aswMBR, if it is shutdown automatically, then it is most likely the infection detecting that aswMBR is running and terminating it. In this situation you should rename executable to iexplore.exe before you attempt to run it."
I don't know what information to send and how (attachment, copy/paste). Please advise.
Greatly appreciate your help. Thank you.
