Hey, today my friend as a prank posted in our discord a link called "kingfamilyphotoalbum.com" he dared me to click on it so i did without him telling me its a virus website, as soon as i saw the website i closed it basically instantly and after doing some research apparently it does give you a virus but i couldn't find solid proof to what the virus exactly is, so i resorted to this forum for help as my anti-virus software didn't find anything but im worried that something might have infected my computer.

:welcome: to the Bleeping Computer Am I Infected? What do I do? Forum.  I scanned the URL with VirusTotal.  You can click here to see the results.  There were some hits from some AV products that are not among the most popular.
Just to be on the safe side, let's run a few standard scans and see if anything malicious turns up.
:step1: ESET Online Scanner using Internet Explorer:

Note: You will need to disable your currently installed Anti-Virus, how to do so can be found here.

  • Download esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click the icon.
  • Check YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Then select: "Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications" - Yes.
  • Click Advanced settings.
  • Check the following items.

Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications
Remove found threats
Scan archives
Scan for potentially unsafe applications
Enable Anti-Stealth technology

  • Click Change next to Current scan targets:
  • Place a check mark in any additional drive you wish to scan then click OK.
  • Click Start.
  • ESET will then download updates and begin scanning your computer.
  • If no threats are found simply click Uninstall application on close and hit Finish.
  • If threats are found click List of found threats.
  • Click Export to text file.
  • Save the file on your Desktop as ESET.txt.
  • Click Back.
  • Check Uninstall application on close and Delete quarantined files.
  • Click Finish.
  • Close the ESET Online Scanner window.
  • Copy and paste the contents of ESET.txt into your reply, if any threats were detected.

Don't forget to re-enable your antivirus when finished!


:step2: Please run a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan for me.

  • Please download Malwarebytes to your Desktop.
  • Double-click mb3-setup-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • Then click Finish.
  • Next, please go to "Settings", "Protection", and turn on "Scan for rootkits", if it is not "On."
  • Ensure that under "Potential Threat Protection", both switches are set to "Always Detect PUPs/PUMs (recommended).
  • Then scroll to the bottom of that page and ensure that "Automatic Quarantine" is turned "On."
  • Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • If an update of the definitions is available, it will be downloaded and installed before the scan commences.
  • When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  • Restart your computer when prompted to do so.

The Scan log is available through History ->Application logs. Please copy and paste the contents of the log into your next reply.


:step3: Please download AdwCleaner by Malwarebytes and save the file to your Desktop.

  • Vista/Windows 7/8/10 users right-click and select Run As Administrator
  • The tool will start to update the database, please wait for it to complete the update.
  • Click on I Agree button.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin its scan ... please be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Logfile button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R#].txt) will open in Notepad for review (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, then make sure that you uncheck it before running the "Clean" process.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
  • After the scan has finished ...
  • Uncheck any PUP and adware applications that you want to keep.

If you are unsure about one or more of the detected programs, then please copy and paste the scan log, with your questions, and I will provide you with advice about those files.
The Scan logfile report (AdwCleaner[S#].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
Do not follow the remaining "Clean" instructions until directed to do so by me, if you have any questions about one or more of the detections.
If you have no questions about any of the detections, then please proceed to the "Clean" steps below.

  • Then 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[C#].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • Please copy and paste the contents of that logfile into your next reply.
  • A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.


Thank you and have a great day.
