Hi, I'm on Windows 7, and in an effort to download something, I clicked the wrong link, and downloaded the wrong file.
Without thinking, I ran it, and as a result I believe my system is infected.
When I ran the file, firefox crashed, and then when I reopened it, address bar searches were directing to "foxsearch.me" before google.
I am also getting random popups when clicking, but only on firefox (I also have chrome installed, and I haven't had any random popups using it).
After running this program, I updated Malwarebytes to 3.2.2, or whatever the latest version is as of 2 hours ago, and the GUI will not launch. I have mbam.exe, mbamtray.exe, and MBAMservice.exe running in my the processes tab of the task manager, but regardless of what I do, the GUI will not pop up, and I suspect this may be due to an infection.
In searching for a solution to that, I was directed to a program linked in this post on the malwarebytes forums: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/209359-malwarebytes-3-wont-start/?page=2
I am currently running mbar.exe, which has found 4 pieces of malware; one listed as Adware.YoBrowser, one as RiskWare.BitCoinMiner, and two as Trojan.Agent.
I just now uploaded the file I downloaded originally (which mbar is identifying as Adware.YoBrowser) to virustotal, and got these results: https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/ed1ea75dd62295487a3d34c75155ddd14a0e577bbb442b6cccc610d60031b409/detection
I hope someone can help, I have a lot of faith in you guys, as you've helped me in the past!
