JS:AddLyrics-Z Adware warning
« on: August 27, 2013, 10:45:11 PM »
Hello,

I am getting consistently an Avast adware threat detected whenever I open a new Google Chrome window. This happens only in the Chrome browser. I've reiterated Avast virus scans, including a boot up scan, and also run MalwareBytes anti-malware and run Spybot from safer-networking.org.

The warning for infection JS-AddLyrics-Z appears to consistently try to infect chrome.exe and Avast will move it to the chest. Thought it might be a variation of the Win32 AddLyrics.

I want to get rid of the consistently annoying adware threat.

Any suggestions?

Regards,

Brett

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Use AdwCleaner

Download AdwCleaner from here to your desktop
Run AdwCleaner and select Scan



Once done select the clean button
