Welcome to BC...

 

I haven't found any sure fire solution, either. Have you run any security programs such as the ones below?

Though that malware may not allow even accessing the sites to download programs.

 

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 Google Chrome and Avast.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Malwarebytes - Clean Mode

  • Download and install the free version of Malwarebytes
    Note: If you have Malwarebytes already installed, you don't need to install it again. Simply start from the next bullet point
  • Once Malwarebytes is installed, launch it and let it update its database. You might have to click on the little arrow by Scan Status in the middle right pane for it to do so
  • Once the database update is complete, click on the Scan tab, then select the Threat Scan button and click on Start Scan
  • Let the scan run, the time required to complete the scan depends of your system and computer specs
  • Once the scan is complete, make sure that the first checkbox at the top is checked (which will automatically check every detected item), then click on the Quarantine Selected button
    • If it asks you to restart your computer to complete the removal, do so
  • Click on Export Summary after the deletion (in the bottom-left corner) and select Copy to Clipboard. Paste the content in your next reply

If you are unable to run a scan using MBAM:

Follow the instructions in the thread below. Make sure to download the MBAR linked in it. Let me know if you're not able to launch it and run a scan.

Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop. (compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10)

  • 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 and run the FREE online scanner from Free Virus Scan | Online Virus Scan from ESET | ESET

  • Place a checkmark in YES, I accept the Terms of Use, then click Start. Wait for ESET Online Scanner to load its components.
  • Select Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications.
  • Click Advanced Settings, then place a checkmark in the following:
    • Remove found threats
    • Scan archives
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • Click Start to begin scanning.
  • ESET Online Scanner will start downloading signatures and scan. Please be patient, as this scan can take quite some time.
  • When the scan is done, click List threats (only available if ESET Online Scanner found something).
  • Click Export, then save the file to your desktop.
  • Click Back, then Finish to exit ESET Online Scanner.

I think it's fixed!!!   So far they haven't come back...    here's what I did.

 

I used MMC to go and remove all the bad certificates....  I also moved all the ones in the untrusted folder back to the regular folder, as that seems to be something the malware does....    then I also went and removed the authorities that were bad.      If you just do this, it all comes back so make sure you have malwarebytes all ready to go...

 

Run Malwarebytes...   it found a bunch of stuff but nothing that just screamed of solution.  It found about 80 things....   once cleaned, I rebooted and the certificates did not come back!!

When looking for info/ solution to the problem I saw where it was some type of adware that was responsible and

one of the things to do is to check if a proxy was being used or not. The fix was to change browsers back to not using a proxy.

 

Glad that it looks like Malwarebytes removed the adware/ malware causing the problem. But I suggest you follow up

with the other programs when you have the time. They take little time to run except for Eset. It can take more than an hour.

 

Here is another tool you can use to check for vulnerabilities in programs, etc.

  • download Security Check by glax24 and save the file to the Desktop
  • Run the tool by accepting all the Security prompts
  • when complete the tool will produce a log file C:\SecurityCheck\SecurityCheck.txt and also copy the contents to the Clipboard
  • Simply Paste the log to your reply

Oh yes, it did set some weird proxy.... but only in Chrome, not in IE.  I had to clear that too.  I will definitely follow up with the other programs.  Thank you!
