Windows 10: malware/ trojan attacking browsers
malware/ trojan attacking browsers
Hi there, to cut a long story short , my sisters toshiba satellite was running very very slow . ;installed adware cleaner and malwarebytes and ran it .... it found many problems . I quarantined them and removed them but they came back ! The browsers have been taken over by searchfinder.com or searching .com ? So now after a week of trying to remove this problem . Folowing all instructions on how to remove from each browser and their short cuts I began using my computer to download tools to try and fix the problem ....; in doing so I have managed to download something with bundled adware onto my toshiba qosmio and I now have problems opening any browser ! Ibhave adwcleaner installed which i have ran many times . This removes all the problems found but they return ? After 2 weeks now I downloaded the windows defender offline tool - onto disc . Ran it . It found a trojan and malware . Removed them . On restarting the problems have not gone away ! I cannot even turn windiws defender on now !!! Driving me crazy,,,, any help would be very appreciative ---- cheers ---Neil

If you can open Task Manager...under Processes tab highlight any browser shown working and click on End Task.
Close down computer.....as this might be a high jacked webpage linked to your router.
Disconnect Router......reconnect router then restart computer to see if it solves your problem.
Hit a bit of a stumbling block. Ive managed to download the eScan AV toolkit and ran the scan but there was no scan spyware option like in the picture ?
I ran the scan and saved the log but after restarting thr system after the scan I can no longer get online ?
I opened task manager and did what you recommended but I have now plugged the router back in and restarted but no browser is letting me get back onto windows 10 forum
I have internet explorer , moz. Firefox and chrome - none of them are working now
Sounds like a bootable virus/rootkit scanner would be your best bet at this point.
You'll need access to a computer to download and create the media.

You've got a rootkit going there, that's why they keep coming back.
It's also possible to download Kyhi's rescue media and boot the systems from it, then run Malwarebytes Antimalware.

I was wondering if it's possible for attackers to cling to your network and maybe even configuring routers settings so that they can silently see what your'e doing, and can I check for that?
