Please help with virus removal...

Recommended Posts

Hi and thanks for your help and time!

I have that dastardly googleleads ads popping up in firefox.

I performed a quick scan with malware bites and it showed nothing. Currently full scanning and nothing has popped up yet. Le sigh. I know my one and only computer is much infected and I'm not super tech saavy. I hope whoever created this dies a painful slow death...

Thanks for any help.

Regards, from Oregon.

What part of Oregon on you from?

 

Give this a try:

 

Step 1

Please 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 or Seven, right-mouse click it 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.

Step 2

Please 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. Wait until is finished.
  • Click on Clean.
  • Confirm each time with Ok.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner\AdwCleaner[s0].txt as well.

Step 3
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.


  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location and post the results.
  • Note: If you receive a notice that some of the items couldn't be removed, that they have been added to the delete on reboot list, please reboot (shut down your computer then restart it).




In your next reply, post the following log files:

  • Junkware Removal Tool log
  • AdwCleaner log
  • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware log
