As for this or this or even this, my computer has been infected to this sh-t and my browsers open an annoying pop-up on every single click to whatever web page I am visiting and this is repeated really unlimited times, getting me more and more nervous.

It was just Google Chrome ( 47.0.2526.106 m ), but now I have it on Opera ( 34.0.2036.25 ) too, and I think it will go through the Firefox, IE, ... soon.


  • Windows 10 x64 Enterprise (1151) Build 10586.29

My efforts

  • Used Chrome's Help > Report and issue menu to report it to the Google.
  • Used the Chrome Cleanup Tool to remove any problems at the very first moment (just before my opera get infected too).
  • Using the tool, I noticed that the exe file ( Chrome Cleanup Tool ) gets deleted automatically right after usage and so I added an audit on the file for deletion to suspect what process deletes the chrome_cleanup_tool.exe file using Security section under Windows Logs in Windows Even Viewr. The answer was:

        Object Server:          Security
        Object Type:            File
        Object Name:            C:\Users\{my-user-name}\Downloads\chrome_cleanup_tool.exe
        Handle ID:              0x2c
        Resource Attributes:    S:AI
    Process Information:
        Process ID:             0x179c
        Process Name:           C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe
    Access Request Information:
        Accesses:               DELETE
        Access Mask:            0x10000

    So I am almost sure that my windows has been infected with virus and there is nothing to do with Chrome, Opera, ...

My question

How can I remove the infection from my computer?

    Trix - if your machine has been infected, and you don't have a solution from your antivirus vendor, the solution is to completely wipe it and start from scratch. Your post here is off topic as we don't provide av guidance. – Rory Alsop Dec 22 '15 at 9:33
  • Trix - after your edit. Virus removal guidance is off topic here. Check out guidance on any of the antivirus vendors sites. Google will find you a range of options. – Rory Alsop Dec 22 '15 at 9:37

    Not a problem, just not on topic here. – Rory Alsop Dec 22 '15 at 9:38
  • @Trix Unfortunately, this question is off-topic. We are not a malware removal forum. – schroeder Feb 19 '16 at 23:51
