AdwCleaner
« on: June 07, 2013, 11:48:35 AM »
Hey, recently I downloaded AdwCleaner to a friends computer to remove about 4 toolbars that shouldn't have been installed. It successfully removed all of them but as the side affect, sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Mojang (Minecraft makers) sites don't load all the way. Everything is aligned to the Left with a ton of links but no background.

Any ideas on what could be causing this? Unless the logs auto save, I don't have them. Sorry.

Edit: I did look at the logs and there were probably a hundred things deleted in numerous places ranging from the browser to the registry.

Thanks
Michael

I mentioned above that unless they autosave I do not have them. Sorry. If they do, can you tell me where to find them?

I'll be able to check in a couple hours. Given that I'm currently at school right now there isn't much I can do to check. If it's there I'll transfer the file to my email and upload it from a clean computer. I'll also check to see if there are any other viruses on the computer. Not to mention an AV.

Thanks for helping out. And sorry for being hard on you at first. Didn't know you were big on other AV forums. But the forum I checked was in French.

Logs were deleted in a complete system failure. Lenovo, computer might explain it. I ran adwcleaner to confirm it dind't crash it. When I ran it, it attempted to make changes to my start-up. Why? There was nothing that needed to be fixed in Start-up.

1) I downloaded it
2) Installed it
3) Ran as an Admin
4) searched found Some keys and remainder of a toolbar
5) Deleted it.
6) Avast pop-upped saying it tried to make a change to start-up Allow or Deny.
7) I denied it, and from there it booted normally

Download http: // www.forums-fec.be/gen-hackman/Reload_Td sskiller.exe

Launch it

Choose: to throw(launch) the cleaning "Lancer le nettoyage"

The tool is automatically going to download the last version then

TDSSKiller is going to open, click "Start Scan"

If TDSS.tdl2 is detected l " delete option will be marked by default.
If TDSS.tdl3 is detected assure you that Cure is marked well.
If TDSS.tdl4 ( \HardDisk0\MBR ) is detected assure you that Cure is marked well.
If Suspicious takes off is indicated, leaves marked on Skip option.
If Rootkit. Win32. ZAccess.* is detected rule "cure" at the top, and " delete " below

When he ended, start again if the computer asks to you for it to stop cleaning

Otherwise, close to tdssKiller and the report will display

New thread First of all. What are they? I'd download MBAM and scan. And Delete and then reinstall Avast

TDSS found nothing. And it was also questioned by Avast. How do I disable SmartScreen?
