www.mybrowserbar.com api?


Recommended Posts

I believe I got some sort of virus or something (mybrowserbar.com) because yesterday, I downloaded some stuff, including toolbars (that I prompted uninstalled).

 

But now whenever I come across a 404 page, it automatically redirects me to another domain at www.mybroswerbar.com

 

I did some research on that, and it looks like it's malware or something bad.

 

I'm not sure how to get rid of it? Please help. Thank you.

Hello petemelster :adios:

 

I am not sure which operating system you have, but if you are running XP or Vista, give this a try:

 

  • Please perform the following scan:

     

  • Please download MalwareBytes AntiMalware by clicking here and save the file (called mbam-setup.exe) to your desktop.
  • Double click on the mbam-setup.exe icon to install the program.
  • Follow the prompts during installation and have the Installation Wizzard create a desktop icon.
  • Once installed, double click on the MalwareBytes AntiMalware icon to launch the program.
  • Click on the "Update" tab and then on "Check for Updates".
  • The program will now install the latest Malware definition files.
  • Once complete, click on the "Scanner" tab, select "Perform full scan"and then click on "Scan".
  • Once the program has scanned your computer, a log file will be created in Notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • If the scan detects any Malware-related objects, make sure that everything is checked, and click "Remove Selected" <– Very Important.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the "Logs" tab.
  • Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart your computer, please do so immediately.
Let me know how you get on.
